What causes oily skin?
Under each one of our pores is a sebaceous gland that produces sebum. Sebum is a waxy, oily substance that is vital for the skin since it protects and hydrates it. In some individuals, the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum and as a result the skin becomes oily. The extra oil gives the face a shiny appearance. It also tends to clog up the pores and cause acne. The upside is that people with oily skin tend to have fewer wrinkles as they age since the skin is highly moisturized.
What are the common causes of oily skin?
1. Genetics. The most common cause of oily skin is our genes. If one of your parents or close relatives has oily skin, then there is a significant chance that you will as well.
2. Hormonal changes. Hormones play a key role in the look and feel of our skin. During periods in which there are high fluctuations in estrogen or testosterone levels, the skin can become oilier. Examples include puberty, premenstrual syndrome and pregnancy. In addition, birth control pills and other hormone-based medications can also affect the skin.
3. An inappropriate skincare regime. If you over-exfoliate, over-wash or over-cleanse your face, you are stripping it of the moisture it needs. The skin then responds by producing an excess amount of sebum to compensate for the lost moisture and protect itself. In general, you should wash your face twice a day, avoid harsh exfoliators and cleansing products that contain alcohol, and make sure to moisturize your face.
4. Environment. Our skin reacts to our environment. If you expose it to dry and cold weather, this negatively affects the skin and can result in increased oiliness. In addition, overexposure to UV rays, infrared light and blue light may cause inflammation that increases the skin’s serum production.
Personalized oxygen facials for oily skin
During a traditional oxygen facial, a special machines infuses pure, pressurized oxygen onto the skin. In addition to the oxygen, the aesthetician applies specific serums that help balance oily skin such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts, lactic acid and retinol. Depending on the exact needs of your skin, the aesthetician will choose ingredients that both limit the oiliness of the skin and ensure that it is properly hydrated. The major advantage of the oxygen facial is that the oxygen helps to push the serum deep into the skin and the ‘oxygenation effect’ caused during the treatment ensures that the skin cells optimally absorb the ingredients.
The NowMi oxygen facial for oily skin
The NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial is an ideal solution if you are battling with oily skin. The NowMi Pro offers a daily skin cleansing treatment and a weekly facial spa treatment. The daily treatment not only deeply cleanses the skin, it also infuses it with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals which moisturize it. This enables you to ensure that your skin is clean and moisturized on a daily basis.
The NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial weekly treatment performs 4 skin actions- skin exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection. The exfoliation is highly effective and removes unwanted oils and dead skin cells yet is performed using an effervescent tablet which is very gentle on the skin. The treatment infuses the skin with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid which help keep the skin balanced and hydrated.
Unlike traditional oxygenation treatments, the NowMi treatment is unique in that it stimulates the skin to oxygenate itself ‘from within’. It does this by using a scientific principal called the Bohr effect. The Bohr effect states that if the body is exposed to high levels of carbon dioxide (C02), it responds by sending oxygen rich (02) blood cells to the area. Based on this principal, the NowMi treatment creates a chemical reaction that results in a C02 rich environment on the skin’s surface. The body then naturally oxygenates treatment area from within the skin. The main advantage of this oxygenation process is that the cells best absorb and use the vitamins, and results are visible from the very first treatment.
The NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment also proactively protects the skin. The pure vitamin C infused into the skin helps it protect against harmful UV rays and other extrinsic factors that damage it. As mentioned above, UV rays can cause inflammation which then stimulates the over production of sebum.
Best of all, the NowMi treatment can be performed in the comfort of your home and takes only 5 minutes!
If you have oily skin, it is important that you adopt a skin regimen that helps you limit the amount of excess oil on your face and at the same time provides your skin with the moisture it needs. Personalized oxygen facials for oily skin infuse the skin with serums designed to do achieve this balance. The NowMi treatment takes traditional oxygen facials to the next level and offers users the same results as spa oxygen facial treatments yet at a fraction of the cost.
