Olivia Bowen has praised a £25 silicone gel for ‘calming’ and ‘settling’ a painful scar.
The Love Island runner-up took to Instagram recently to tell her followers about Nourisil MD Silicone Scar Gel – which has also received 5 star reviews.
Olivia, 24, shared a before and after photo of a mark just below her armpit, which is the result of surgery to remove a benign lump.
She wrote: “A month or so ago I was sent this silicone scar gel from @nourisil_md which basically is meant to help with the redness and raised appearance of scars.
“I’ve been using it for the last month and I’m actually so happy with how my scar has changed!
“You can see even in these photos it’s actually visible how much it’s made my scar, which was very red and angry, calm down and settle and I no longer have any discomfort from it!”.
Olivia added: “I honestly recommend it so much for anyone with an angry scar, it’s made me so happy.”
The product is described as being “designed by dermatologists for the prevention and treatment of keloid and hypertrophic scars, resulting from wounds, trauma, burns or medical/cosmetic surgery.
It works by creating a ‘silicone barrier’ that helps the skin to release moisture, thereby reducing collagen and the severity of a scar.
The product is suitable for use on all types of skin, and even on children.
