Wintertime Oxygen Treatment

Wintertime Oxygen Treatment | NowMi

During the winter months the facial skin tends to dry out more easily.  There are many reasons for this- the cooler temperatures, the reduced humidity in the air, the overly hot showers we tend to take, and the fact that we spend so much time in overheated indoor environments.

All of these factors take their toll on our skin.  As cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Sam Bunting says “Heated air inside causes low humidity, which leads to water evaporating from our skin…This can cause cracking, flaking and irritation and leave skin with a lackluster, parched appearance.”  The skin is further damaged by the constant shifting between the heated indoors and the cold outdoors.  This process causes the facial capillaries to rapidly contract and expand which can lead to skin redness and broken veins.  And when it comes to super-hot showers, dermatologist Dr. Nick Lowe advises “Hot baths and showers can dissolve the protective barrier in the skin which will eventually lead to dryness”.

One of the best ways to take care of your skin is to pamper it with a wintertime oxygen treatment.  The treatment focuses on hydrating the skin and restoring moisture.

Advantages of a wintertime oxygen treatment

1. Oxygen is vital for the skin– During the winter months, the dry air reduces the oxygen content in the skin. To counter this, the wintertime oxygen treatment infuses the skin with pure oxygen.  As a result, the cells are revitalized and reinvigorated.  They are able to better absorb nourishing vitamins and minerals, clear waste and heal themselves.

 2. Anti-aging effect– One of the reasons for premature skin aging is a decrease in the levels of oxygen in the skin.  As we age, the blood capillaries in the facial skin tend to clog, and as a result, the cells don’t function at their full capacity.  The facial skin becomes paler, thinner and more fragile.  By infusing the skin with oxygen, you can dramatically slow down the signs of aging and enjoy a more youthful appearance.

3. Deep skin hydration – During the wintertime oxygen treatment, the skin is infused with nourishing vitamins and minerals.  One of the key ingredients used is Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a substance naturally produced by the body. Its primary function is to retain water and it can hold 1,000 times its weight in water!  Hyaluronic acid plays a major role in keeping tissues moist and well lubricated and as a result, the skin looks and feels more supple.

If you lead a busy lifestyle and it is hard for you to find the time to go to a spa to get your wintertime oxygen treatment, there is an alternative!  The NowMi treatment enables you to enjoy a spa-quality treatment in the comfort of your own home.  Best of all, the treatment takes only 5 minutes and costs a fraction of the price of its spa equivalent.

The NowMi Pro is a remarkable device that performs two functions- daily sonic cleansing and weekly vitamin C oxygen facial.

The daily cleanser deeply cleanses the skin and infuses it with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals which strengthen and revitalize it.

The weekly vitamin C oxygen facial treatment performs 4 actions- skin exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection. 

  • Exfoliation: During exfoliation, all dead skin cells, makeup and dirt are removed from the facial skin’s surface.
  • Nourishment:  The skin is infused with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid.  As mentioned above, Hyaluronic acid plays a major role in helping the facial skin retain its moisture, especially during the dry winter months.
  • Oxygenation:  The NowMi treatment uses a unique technology to ‘oxygenate itself from within’. The same science-backed skin oxygenation technology of the OxyGeneo treatment that has been used in professional clinics since 2013. Unlike traditional oxygen facials in which the oxygen is infused from the outside, in the NowMi oxygen facial treatment, the oxygenation process is internal, and as a result, all of the cells are oxygenated and optimally absorb the infused vitamins and minerals.
  • Protection:  The NowMi treatment replenishes the skin’s supply of vitamin C and E. As a result, the skin is better able to protect itself during the winter months from UV rays and other ailments that dry it out.

The winter months are harsh on the skin.  The decline in temperatures, the dry air and the constant shift between heated and unheated environments take their toll on our skin.  Wintertime oxygen treatments can help a lot!  They can restore lost moisture, nourish the skin, and help it remain balanced.

Does your skin have an oily complexion? Are you frustrated because you haven’t found the right treatment for your facial skin? Do you want your skin to be more balanced? There is a solution- the NowMi oxy facial kit for oily skin!

The NowMi oxy facial kit for oily skin is a breakthrough in skincare.  It is unique because it allows you to enjoy the most advanced skincare technology, which up until now has been limited to professional spas, in a home-use device.

The NowMi oxy facial kit for oily skin includes a NowMi Pro sonic applicator, 6 vitamin C effervescent tablets, a lubricant gel tube, and a cleansing gel tube.  The NowMi applicator has two sides – one side is used to perform the weekly vitamin C oxygen facial and the other for the daily sonic cleansing treatment.

NowMi Weekly Facial

Just like a professional spa facial treatment, the NowMi weekly facial treatment includes 4 actions- skin exfoliation, nourishment oxygenation and protection. 

1. Skin exfoliation– deep skin cleansing is an incremental part of caring for oily skin.  The exfoliation removes the outer layer of the skin and clears away all excess oil, makeup and dirt.  The exfoliation is carried out using the NowMi effervescent tablet.  The tablet has a coarse texture and when it is mixed with the NowMi lubricant gel it easily glides across the skin.  During the treatment, you need to message the tablet on the skin in circular motions to exfoliate it.  In addition, the NowMi device uses sonic energy which increases the efficiency and speed of the exfoliation process.  The device transmits 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute which ensures that every pore is thoroughly cleansed. 

2.   Skin nourishment– the NowMi treatment infuses the skin with vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid.  Vitamin C is excellent for oily skin. Since the main problem with oily skin is that it produces excess amounts of sebum, by increasing the amount of vitamin C in the skin, you can help it become more balanced.  Furthermore, vitamin C boosts the collagen levels in the skin which slows down the signs of aging. It also reduces the amount of pigmentation and helps the skin to look smooth and radiant.  

Vitamin E is renowned for its antioxidant properties and its ability to limit skin damage caused by extrinsic factors such as UV rays, pollution and smoke. Vitamin E also hydrates the skin and helps it heal faster.

Many people with oily skin over-cleanse their skin and cause it to dry out.  While cleansing the skin to reduce excess sebum is critical, it is important to hydrate the skin so that it maintains its natural elasticity and suppleness.  This is where Hyaluronic acid comes in.  Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in moisturizing the skin and ensuring the skin doesn’t dry out.

3.  Skin oxygenation– many leading spas offer oxygen facial treatments.  The professional treatments use a high-pressure jet spray gun to infuse pure oxygen into the skin.  While these treatments work well, the NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment has taken oxygen treatments to the next levels and stimulates the body to ‘oxygenate itself from within’.   

The oxygenation effect is based on a scientific principle known as the ‘Bohr Effect’.  According to the Bohr Effect, if the body is bombarded with high concentrations of carbon dioxide, it responds by oxygenating the area. Therefore, the NowMi treatment creates high concentrations of carbon dioxide on the skin’s surface and the body then sends oxygen-rich blood cells to counter this imbalance. Because of the oxygenation effect, the vitamins and minerals to be optimally absorbed by the cells. 

4. Skin protection:  The NowMi treatment helps to prevent skin damage. Once the skin’s supply of vitamin C and E have been restored, it can optimally protect itself from damaging factors such as UV rays, pollution and smoke.

NowMi Daily Cleanser

The American Association of Dermatology recommends to daily wash oily skin.   The NowMi Pro device comes with a daily cleanser that removes all excess sebum from your face.  The cleanser is applied using silicone micro-fingers, and the cleansing action is further enhanced using sonic energy. The sonic energy pushes the cleansing solution into the pores and ensures they are thoroughly cleaned. Scientific research has demonstrated that cleaning the face with sonic energy is up to 6 times more efficiant than hand washing.

The NowMi cleansing gel not only cleanses the skin but also infuses it with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals. These active ingredients nourish and hydrate the skin and help it keep balanced and looking its best.

Facial for oily skin

Facial for oily skin |  NowMi

If you suffer from oily skin, professional facials are an excellent way to care for your facial skin and ensure it is getting what it needs to look its very best.  While there are many different types of facials for oily skin, you should be looking for a facial treatment that performs two actions- deep cleansing and intense nourishment.

Oily skin occurs when the body produces too much sebum.  Sebum is a complex mixture of fatty acids, sugars, waxes and other natural ingredients created by the sebaceous glands.  Sebum is vital for healthy skin as it coats, moisturizes and protects it. 

In order to care for oily skin, the facial skin needs to be frequently cleansed in order to get rid of the excess amounts of sebum.  However, this needs to be done with care.  It is important to deeply clean the face but not to strip it of all of its moisture and nourishing vitamins and minerals.  If the cleansing action is too aggressive, the body receives a signal that the skin is dry and dehydrated and in turn produces even more sebum!

Once the skin has been cleaned and all of its pores are open, you need to add moisture and revitalizing nutrients.  This is important in order for the skin be healthy and balanced.

Recommended Professional Facial treatments for Oily Skin

Bazar Magazine recommended these 5 facials for those suffering from oily skin.

1. Ultimate Hydra-02 Experience. The treatment involves a 90-minute facial at a cost of $420.  The treatment combines a deep-cleansing Hydrafacial with glow-boosting Intraceuticals.  The treatment begins with the thorough cleansing of the skin to remove all dirt and makeup.  Then, using a suction tip, all dead skin cells are removed. If necessary, the aesthetician manually extracts all blackheads and whiteheads that clog up the pores. Next, exfoliating acids are applied to the skin. The acids are potent yet gentle, and accelerate cell renewal and smoothen the skin’s surface.  Lastly, an oxygen jet infuses a nutrient-rich serum into the skin.  The serum consists of a blend of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins that nourish and soothe the skin, rejuvenate it and give it a glowing look.

The PAI Skincare products contain at least 70% organic ingredients which makes them ideal for individuals with sensitive or allergy-prone skin.  To treat the extra shine that people with oily skin have, the PAI treatment uses Himanthalia Sea Algae which is a rich mineral known to regulate the activity of the sebum glands.  Ghassoul clay is also used to remove impurities from the pores and nourish the skin.  Furthermore, Rice Water, which is rich in amino acids is used to rebalance moisture levels and provide an even skin tone.  The treatment includes a therapeutic lymphatic drainage massage, which helps the body remove toxins and enhance the effect of the organic active ingredients.

The treatment uses Hydra Cryo-Serum which contains Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin and collagen to firm the skin. While the serum is being applied, the aesthetic practitioner uses a cryotherapy probe to cool the skin’s temperature.  The cooling action reduces inflammation, aids in the absorption of the serum, calms the sebum glands and contracts the skin. Next, a relaxing facial massage helps to tone the skin.  Finally, a  Hyaluronic Youth Mask is used to seal in moisture providing the skin with a smooth and supple look.

Aqua Clean uses different types of solutions along with advanced vacuum technology to deeply cleanse and exfoliate the skin.  The advantage of the treatment is that it is very effective without using harsh exfoliants.  One solution used is the Ionic Silver Gel which kills the p-Acne, the bacteria that causes acne.  Another solution is the Skin Recovery Gel which contains high levels of vitamin E.  The vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports the skin’s natural self-healing process. 

5. Detox Anew.  The treatment costs 80$ and lasts 75 minutes.  During the Detox Anew treatment, a plant-based exfoliant is used to deeply cleanse the skin.  The exfoliant is used in conjunction with an Azulene-based calming mask, which removes toxins and impurities from the skin.

Oxygen facial for greasy skin

Oxygen facial for greasy skin

Dealing with greasy skin can be very frustrating.  The greasy facial skin appearance occurs because the skin produces too much sebum.  Sebum is an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands that helps keep the skin moisturized.  While sebum is vital for the facial skin, if the body creates too much of it, the skin becomes oily.  Another problem is that the sebum reflects light which causes the skin to look greasy.

The good news is that it has never been easier to take care of greasy skin. An oxygen facial treatment for greasy skin performs two vital actions that help the skin keep balanced- it deeply cleanses the skin and rids it of unwanted sebum while at the same time nourishes it so that it doesn’t get dry.  The treatment is completely non-invasive, pain-free and has no downtime.

How the professional oxygen facial for greasy skin works?

The oxygen facial in a spa involves several steps.  The first step is exfoliation of the skin.  During the exfoliation, the outermost layer of the skin is removed.  This layer contains dead skin cells, dirt, oil and makeup.  By deeply cleansing the skin, the excess layers of sebum are removed and the pores are cleansed.  As an aside, the excess sebum tends to clog up the pores which leads to frequent breakouts and acne.   

Next, using a specialized spray gun, the facial skin is infused with oxygen.  Once the skin cells receive high dosages of oxygen they function better.  The oxygen increases the blood circulation in the treatment area and promotes the production of collagen. 

In addition to the oxygen, healing vitamins and minerals are also infused into the skin.  The exact combination depends on the aesthetician performing the oxygen facial treatment.  Some of the most popular serums used are:

1. Vitamin C: Vitamin C helps curb the production of excess sebum and deeply nourishes the skin.  It improves the radiance of the skin and protects it from damaging effects of environmental pollution.

2. Hyaluronic Acid.  Hyaluronic acid is excellent for oily skin.  It helps the skin maintain moisture and improves its texture and elasticity.

3. Botanical Extracts: The extracts limit the excess production of oil and reduce the size of the pores.

4. Lactic Acid: The lactic acid helps to shrink the size of the pores, improve skin texture and reduce dark spots.

5. Retinol Serum:  For those new to Retinol, lower dosages are used.  Retinol has been shows to help balance greasy skin.

6. Gr+G Serum:  An organic formula that contains grapeseed oil that regulates sebum production and keeps the skin clear.  Additionally, it contains vitamin E that moisturizes and nourishes the skin.
