30 May Embrace body confidence – reveal your skin story
The subject of body confidence is an emotive one, but we should try not to be so hard on ourselves as skin blemishes are far more common than you may realise; research carried out by the fabulous Bio-Oil reveals the reality – on average every woman has three scars somewhere on their body.
To help women feel more confident about their skin, the brand is encouraging women to share their skin stories on Facebook and Twitter.
Skin issues and feeling self-conscious can really impact on life. In Bio-Oil’s survey of 7000 women, they discovered that a quarter of women said they’ve actually avoided going out because they didn’t feel confident enough, while one in five said they worried about their skin and body every day.
So why not share your story and in turn empower other women to feel more body confident – for every story shared, Bio-Oil will donate £1 to either the British Skin Foundation, Look Good Feel Better or the Iolanthe Midwifery Trust.
