In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, it is hard to keep the skin healthy and rejuvenated. Many women wear makeup all day in an environment that is highly polluted, overexpose their skin to damaging sun rays, and live with high levels of daily stress. All these factors (and more) take their toll on our skin.   Lack of oxygen in our skin is one of the main reasons for dull, unhealthy and poor complexion, which is where an at home vitamin C oxygen facial comes into play.

What is a vitamin C oxygen facial?

A vitamin C oxygen facial combines the benefits of a traditional oxygen facial with the advantages of a vitamin C facial. A traditional oxygen facial is typically done in a SPA. It is a very expensive facial treatment and can take up to two hours.  An oxygen facial treatment in a SPA uses a machine that sprays high pressure and highly concentrated oxygen onto the epidermis. The oxygen is used to treat  visible signs of aging, cleanse the pores, kill acne bacteria and stimulate collagen growth.  The treatment is favored by many celebs, and stars such as Madonna, Kim Kardashian, Olivia Coleman and even Justin Timberlake swear by them and even reportedly travel with their own oxygen facial machine.

See below how vitamin C oxygen facial works and the device you can use at home to save you time and money.

Is oxygen vital for your skin?

Yes. Oxygen is essential for every living cell and lack of oxygen eventually causes cell death. All biological processes use oxygen, and in the skin, oxygen is vital for the health and maintenance of the skin’s cells and plays a critical role in regenerating collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the two major proteins responsible for the integrity and structure of our skin. As we age,  our skin loses up to 2% of collagen every year which results in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. However, when plenty of oxygen is available to the skin it boosts circulation, stimulates cell turnover and immediately results in a glowing and revitalized complexion.  

Is vitamin C vital to your skin?

Yes. Facial skin has very high levels of vitamin C since the vitamin protects it from free radicals that damage it and cause premature aging. Unfortunately, people cannot synthesize vitamin C and need to consume it orally or topically.

The primary issue with vitamin C is that its levels significantly decrease with age, and more mature skin has about 70% less vitamin C than young skin. As a result of the decrease, mature skin is more vulnerable to extrinsic factors such as UV rays, pollution and smoke and wrinkles and dark spots form with greater ease.

Traditional oxygen facials vs. skin oxygenation from within

In traditional oxygen facials high-pressure oxygen gas is sprayed on the skin from the outside. The oxygen aims to increase the levels of oxygen to the outermost layer of the skin-  the epidermis.

Conversely, when the  skin is oxygenated “from within”, a natural biological process from within the body is used  to bring more blood and oxygen to all of the layers of the skin. In my previous company, Pollogen, I used the well documented influence of CO2 bath treatments known as the “Nauheim bath” treatments to invent the first spa treatment, that oxygenates the skin from within [see references 1-3].  This technology was coined “OxyGeneo” and was quickly adopted by the spa industry.  However,  in a customer survey we conducted, we discovered that only a few customers could afford the high cost of a full treatment course that included 6 weekly treatments. Most of the customers performed  one or two treatments, mostly before important events like a wedding. This led me, in my new company, to invent and develop the NowMi at home vitamin C oxygen facial.  Using the NowMi treatment, you can enjoy all of the benefits of a powerful oxygen facial that infuses pure vitamin C into your skin, in the comfort of your own home and at a much more attractive price than its spa equivalent.

• 6 Pure Vitamin C effervescent tablets for six weekly treatments
• 1 NowMi lubricant gel tube containing vitamin E and hyaluronic acid
• 1 NowMi facial cleansing gel tube for daily facial cleansing containing vitamin B3, B5, E
• USB charger

The NowMi Pro weekly treatment

The NowMi Pro weekly treatment uses a vitamin C effervescent tablet combined with a lubricant gel. When these two ingredients are mixed, they create a chemical reaction that forms millions of CO2 micro-bubbles on the surface of the facial skin.

The NowMi effervescent tablet contains 50% vitamin C, citric acid and sodium bicarbonate. During treatment, it is dissolved by the lubricant gel, and salt, CO2 and water are released.

When the body is bombarded with high levels of CO2 is responds by sending oxygen rich blood cells to the treatment area. This response is called the Bohr effect and has been scientifically proven. The body releases oxygen from the hemoglobin and ‘oxygenates itself from within’. As a result of the oxygenation, there is a marked increase in blood flow within the capillaries and the cells are able to optimally absorb the active ingredients.

The weekly NowMi Pro facial treatment performs several actions on the skin- it exfoliates it, oxygenates it, and infuses it with vitamin C, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid which results in glowing healthy skin, and protects it with powerful antioxidants.

NowMi Pro daily treatment

The NowMi Pro sonic device has super soft silicone bristles for your daily facial cleansing. You are able to increase/decrease the sonic vibrations using the little + or – . This kit also comes with a cleansing gel loaded with antioxidants and minerals such as vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals. The NowMi Pro device thoroughly cleanses the skin and removes all unwanted makeup, dirt and oil.

Furthermore, the NowMi Pro device emits 6,000 sonic pulses per minute. The sonic energy helps the cleansing gel to penetrate and deeply clean all of the pores. Research has shown that cleansing the skin with sonic energy is up to 6 times for effective than hand washing.

Advantages of oxygen facials that infuse vitamin C into the skin


Vitamin C is a wonder ingredient in facial care, improving the texture of your skin by strengthening, soothing and softening it.  It has been proven as a powerful antioxidant and skin protector which supports your body in neutralizing free-radicals.  Free radicals  are responsible for premature skin aging and the early formation of wrinkles and age spots.  By regularly having oxygen facials that infuse vitamin C into the skin, you can limit the effects of the free-radicals and enjoy healthier and younger looking skin.

Advantages of using Vitamin C for Facial Skin Care

Vitamin C has been established as a vital ingredient in skin care, due to its diverse and profound effects on the skin. It is the most prevalent antioxidant in the human skin, and as such it protects and strengthens it.

Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties help prevent UV damage. When your skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays (UV) it promotes the formation of free radicals in the body, which damage cellular DNA and cause collagen degradation as well as the reduction of collagen production. Studies have shown that vitamin C helps stabilize collagen fibers and produce new collagen, while also restraining collagen disintegration and pigment damage.

Unfortunately, with age, the skin’s dermal layer becomes thinner and collagen is degraded progressively.  Therefore, by infusing vitamin C into your skin you can slow down the signs of aging by strengthening and stabilizing the collagen fibers and stimulating the creation of new collagen. Furthermore, vitamin C is an anti-inflammatory agent which counteracts various age-related inflammatory skin conditions.  Consequently, the use of vitamin C as part of your skin care promotes wound healing and reduces hyperpigmentation.

How Oxygen Facials Work

Oxygen facials are effective and popular facial skin care treatments that include several stages – skin cleansing, exfoliating, extraction of blackheads, oxygenation and infusion of active ingredients. They are specifically designed to nourish your skin and stimulate collagen regeneration, and are known as having many benefits, including healing acne and skin detoxification.

During treatment, highly concentrated molecules of oxygen are sprayed directly into the epidermis – the outermost layer of the skin. The boost to the amount of oxygen in the skin improves its circulation and its ability to regenerate. Skin rejuvenation vitamins and minerals, as well as essential nutrients, are infused into the oxygen that is applied to the skin during treatment.  The treatment leaves your skin hydrated, smooth, radiant and plump.

Oxygen facials that infuse vitamin C into the skin are very popular.  With the added infusion of vitamin C, the skin is able to restore its lost supply of vitamin C and begin to repair skin damage and rejuvenate itself.

Oxygen facials are used by many celebrities, including Madonna, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, to name but a few, who swear by them to keep their skin looking youthful and radiant.

NowMi Oxygen Facial with Pure Vitamin C

facial skin exfoliation with the NowMi device

The NowMi Pro facial treatment is unique since it enables you to enjoy all of the benefits of a professional spa oxygen facial in the comfort of your home (and at a fraction of the price).  Similar to a spa treatment, the facial treatment performs 4 actions- skin exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.

The NowMi oxygen facial is different from traditional oxygenation treatments that oxygenate the skin from the outside. The NowMi treatment uses an effervescent tablet that contains pure vitamin C. When this tablet is combined with the NowMi lubricant gel it creates a chemical reaction that results in the formation of CO2 microbubbles on the skin’s surface. The body responds to the elevated levels of CO2 by sending oxygen rich blood to the area.  By doing so, it causes an oxygenation effect from within the skin. This reaction is known scientifically as the Bohr Effect.

Another important advantage of the NowMi Pro treatment is that the vitamin C tablet is sealed until use.  Many consumers are unaware of the fact that if vitamin C is exposed to air or water, it potency dramatically reduces, and its anti-aging effects virtually disappear.  So when you use the NowMi effervescent tablet you can be certain that you are getting the purest level of vitamin C for the best possible results.
