So, I’m still a major work in progress but I’m also someone who has a little success story to tell. After two years of (almost) consistent exercise and diet, I’m now 83 lbs lighter than my highest weight. Now, granted, I still have 30 lbs to go, but it’s a very strong argument for taking good care of yourself. I’m definitely healthier and happier than I have been in years and I feel great!
Here’s the thing about this success story: the stretch mark situation. Many women get stretch marks when they lose weight from the toll that weight loss can take on your skin. I luckily have way fewer stretch marks than most because I’ve been using Bio-Oil like it’s my job twice a day since I started my weight loss process. I’m not kidding: every morning right out of the shower and every night right out of the bathtub, I slather this on damp skin anywhere I even think I might see skin discoloration or a line. I’m hyper-vigilant and it really works. Two years later and I have little to no lines on my bod and I have this miracle product to thank for it.
Bio-Oil also has a ton of different uses: uneven skin tone, protecting your hair color when you swim (apply to wet hair), rough knees and elbows, cuticle softening, etc. Literally, there are TONS of uses for this product, not the least of which is the diminishing appearance of skin imperfections. Best part is, it’s really inexpensive. Most pricey oils and creams are in the $50 and up range, but you can grab yourself some Bio-Oil for under $25 at your local super retailer or drugstore. It’s that good, folks.
So, now that you know my little anti-stretch mark treatment, go ahead and grab some for yourself and be sure to tell a friend. After all, the best beauty secrets are the ones you can share with your besties and better skin is definitely something you’ll want to pass along.
