When I fell pregnant with my daughter, one of my concerns was stretch marks. Even though I was a fashion editor at the time, I was still doing a lot of modeling work, and most of my jobs were swimwear or underwear campaigns.
My editor at the time suggested I start using the Justine Tissue Oil as soon as possible on every inch of my body to avoid stretch marks, which I duly did.
Every evening after my bath, for the duration of my pregnancy, I applied the tissue oil. And guess what? I didn’t get even one stretch mark! I’ve been a fan ever since, and every time I use this tissue oil, the subtle, comforting scent reminds me of my pregnancy.
The Justine Tissue oil was developed in 1977 with South African skin in mind. It was the first of its kind and was the result of rigorous testing. It’s a great example of a product that expertly blends science & nature. The formula contains a blend of naturally derived oils, vitamins and essential fatty acids that help improve the overall appearance of scars, stretch marks and sun damage in just two weeks (this claim is substantiated with consumer trials), while helping the skin look & feel younger and more radiant in just a week. The ingredients include Sweet Almond, Corn Germ, What Germ, Vitamin E and Castor Oils as well as Micro Algae.
The Justine Tissue Oil (R199 for a 200ml bottle) BUY can be used on both face and body. It dramatically improves skin hydration for up to 24 hours after just one application. It’s not at all oily and sinks into the skin really quickly.
I use mine in a multitude of ways:
- I have really dry cuticles, so massage a little of the Tissue oil onto them just before bed.
- I add a few drops to my bath to soften my skin.
- For a super nourishing treat, I add a few drops to my body lotion.
- I’ve used it many times on my scalp as a treatment (try this of you have a dry, itchy scalp!). Simply add a few drops to the scalp, wrap in a towel for 10 minutes, then wash out with a mild shampoo, ensuring the water is lukewarm.
- I apply it all over my body to keep my skin soft, smooth and nourished. I also find the formula is great at soothing my legs after shaving.
There are also a few other amazing products available in the Tissue Oil range that I’ve been trying.
