My friend Debbie swears by this stuff. She has used it for years. I’m not a big fan of using oily products, because like the moroccan oil, it tends to just sit on my face.

Earlier this summer, I noticed my forearms were taking on a snakeskin look.  Really scaly. You could touch my forearm and it was soft and lovely, because I have always moisturized. I assumed it was because of my age that this was going to be a permanent thing because it didn’t appear dry. Then one day I walked by Bio-Oil on the shelf at my local mega store, and saw these words: dehydrated skin.  Dehydrated skin. Was my skin actually dehydrated? I have been on a pretty strict diet for about a year, so maybe it was really dehydrated due to diet. Maybe, just maybe, I could fix this problem without having to live with it after all!

Well, guess what? It worked! My forearms look so much better. So I started using it daily on my arms AND my neck. Not that it was dehydrated, but we all know that your neck needs some special attention. Especially when you are getting older.  You 20, 30, and even 40 year olds can keep on enjoying that pretty neck. I’ve seen the future, it’s not going to be pretty!
