Skin treatment oil Bio-Oil is launching the My Body Philosophy campaign. Bio-Oil is funding a new body confidence performance project in school with The Body Gossip Charity in light of new finding. The Body Gossip Performance Project is a 90 minute drama session for years 7-9 which will use creative writing and theatre to inspire young people to be the best version of themselves. Bio-Oil discovered that ‘1 in 10 teenagers have wanted to self-harm because of skin or body worries.’ So Bio-Oil’s mission is to inspire a life-time of body confidence, starting in schools and inspiring women of all ages – we bring you My Body Philosophy. Bio-Oil are working closely with the Body Gossip charity to take a selection of Body Philosophies into schools to inspire body confidence amongst young people. As part of the campaign Bio-Oil will be funding Body Gossip to run a Body Confidence Performance Project in 20 schools nationwide. From 1st June to 31st October you can nominate a school to receive a free Body Confidence Workshop here: http://www.bodygossip.org/nominate-a-school
You can have a look and get a feel for the campaign, share your own words of wisdom or read other people and feel inspired: www.mybodyphilosophy.com. You can find Bio-Oil on Twitter @BioOilUK and tell us your Body Philosophy using #bodyphilosophy
