Bio-Oil (The Scar Specialist) - "My Scar My Story"

"Bio-Oil My Oil". Bio-Oil to hydrate and nourish my face every three to four days once. Containing plant extracts (chamomile, lavender, rosemary and calendula oils), Vitamin A & E and the breakthrough ingredient-PurCellin Oil, the oil works wonderfully to lock-in the loss of moisture I need. Well, when the biological clock stopped "tick-tock-tick-tock" a couple of years ago, this oil has been keeping my skin supple. Albeit its non-sticky and greasy formula, Bio-Oil (Bio-Oil's Be Confident Workshop) a little strong for my sensitive-combination skin, hence impossible for daily use. Breaks me up by slowly activating my oil glands. But as said, its the oil I will still invest for wrinkle-free skin.

And lately, I have been generously luxuriating Bio-Oil on my body and sure enough, the absorption of moisture and glowing skin I see. Yes, Bio-Oil you can safely use without worrying about side effects - the toxicological profile, chemical structure, level of inclusion and total level of daily exposure of each ingredient has been assessed and deemed safe ( to use (including for use by pregnant women).
Prior to the launch of the "My Scar My Story" campaign, I was told that my personal experience with Bio-oil for scars can be one of the instrument to measure how women cope with the emotional distress due to their scar. Honestly I am scar free, at least on the areas I don't flaunt to the public. Thus, I couldn't think neither cooking up for the "sake" story  I should. Still, it was definitely a knowledgeable experience to be there at the launch, attentively listening to the opening speech/presentation by Ms. Stephanie Ng, Bio-Oil Malaysia Product Manager and Dr Nazirin Ariffin, Resident Consultant Dermatologist from Pantai Hospital/Consultant Dermatologist/Aesthetic Consultant at Nazirin Skin Centre, thereafter questions from the floor during the Q & A session.

Also, to bring Malaysian women together to share their scar story and solutions to their problems, as a  way of inspiring women who are undergoing emotional distress due to their scar stories.
