The opening remarks certainly pulled through strongly about Bio-Oil - a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Since its globally launch in 2002, Bio-Oil has won 222 skincare awards and has become the No.l selling scar and stretch mark product in 18 countries, including Malaysia. Applying a topical product such as Bio-Oil on the scars can help reduce its appearance and colour, thereby reducing the need to cover up. Bio-Oil's unique formation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil (TM), ensures that the active ingredients are rapidly absorbed into the skin, without leaving an oily residue. Its formulation consists of vitamins A & E, and natural plant oils - Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary and Chamomile. Facts and figures were also backed up to coincide with the core of this new campaign - "Hide no more. Be skin confident" I can absolutely comprehend what it can be when we try to hide our skin imperfections. I've been there and its not a nice feeling for sure.
At this point, I have to be honest. Indeed I've heard of Bio-Oil but I've never used before. Then again, after listening to the proven potential during the sharing session, I concluded that the oil will do a whole lot of good more for my uneven skin tone than for stretch marks. I'm not saying my skin is flawless but the marks doesn't bother me for they are at areas I don't wish to reveal to the public. Still, I agree that Bio-Oil is the oil for improving skin condition and in turn, will lead to an overall sense of stronger self-worth and self-confidence.
The closing session by Yogash, the stylish behind the scenes with the Ms. Universe Malaysia organisation reinforced another fact that albeit age, colour and sex, confidence is crucial to project the feel good self-image. I truly believe that skin imperfection can significantly influence our self-image. Meanwhile before you see the improvement in your skin as Bio-Oil is massaged twice a day for a minimum of 3 months, hang in to your self-confidence by cleverly covering your liabilities and confidently flaunting your assets.
While tucking into the refreshments, I had the pleasure of getting up, close and personal with people I met for the first time including stylist Yogash and Shangkharee of V'Buzz Astro. Kudos to the team for organizing this meaningful workshop.
