They believe that every body tells a story and that the marks on our skin are just “Footprints of the journey we’ve been through and the experiences that make us the person we are today.” Bio-Oil is used all over the world to improve the appearance of scars and stretchmarks. They have this belief because they believe that every body tells a story.
You should be proud of your scars because they tell a tale about your life and demonstrate that you are tough…
In honour of this occasion, Bio-Oil will make a donation of one pound to either Look Good… Feel Better, The Lolanthe Midwifery Trust, or The British Skin Foundation for each and every story that is shared.
I’ve never been attacked by a shark or even carried a child, but once I started counting my scars, I found quite a few of them and began to remember not only how much they used to bother me, but also the circumstances in which I got them. So, let’s talk about my scars. I’ve never been bitten by a shark, and I’ve never even carried a child.
I have one on my knee from tripping down concrete steps when I was a child, a teeny weeny chicken pox scar just below my hairline, a vaccination scar on my left arm, and a burn on my left wrist from the oven shelf that I got when I was cooking banana muffins – oh yeah, it’s been one wild ride and I’ve got the scars to prove it!:) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
My vaccination scar used to be much larger, and it seemed that I was the only one among my classmates who was left with a massive red scar after receiving a BCG injection. I was the only one who had this experience. I had a lot of anxiety about it, and I detested it when other people inquired about it, which they did often (I know, that shows how insensitive they are).
I seldom really notice that scar anymore, but whenever I do, it brings back memories of when I was a carefree schoolgirl who didn’t really give a damn about anything in the outside world. The fact that you have been immunised against potentially harmful illnesses is another source of comfort…
Because Bio-Oil is working with such incredible organisations, there has never been a better moment for you to share your story. This eerie and sentimental blog post is attempting to get over the idea that every scar truly does tell a story, and that now is the best time ever for you to do so.
