Spa Quality Facial at Home: A How-to Guide

Many women enjoy going to the spa and getting a facial. However, the price can be a bit much  and some women just can find the time… When this happens, you may want to consider doing an at home facial. You can learn how to do it. That way, you can perform the treatment by yourself whenever the need arises.

What Is a Facial?

Facials are skin care treatments designed for the face. They often include exfoliation, steam, extraction, masks and even a massage. While beauty salons perform them as well as spas, it might be ideal to try and do it yourself.

How to Do an at Home Facial?

If you plan to do an at home facial, now is the time to learn the steps.

  1. Cleanse
  2. Steam
  3. Massage
  4. Apply a face mask
  5. Tone
  6. Moisturize

You can see from above that the steps aren’t complicated, but they can be a bit time-consuming. Instead of going to the spa, you can handle all of this yourself. Consider putting on some music, and having some reading materials available so that you don’t get bored while performing your DIY facial.


You need to first cleanse the skin in order to remove all of the dirt and oil. In this way, the nourishing products you choose are going to be more effective. You can find many facial cleansers on the market. The goal is to pick a cleanser that is going to hydrate, soothe, brighten, or exfoliate, depending on your needs. Plus, the cleanser lets you remove all of the day’s makeup and start with a clean face. Just make sure that you don’t scrub your face because this can cause acne flareups. Be gentle and give yourself a relaxing treatment based on your needs.


The next step is to steam the face which opens up the pores. Steaming helps to remove the dead skin cells and other impurities that might be deeply embedded in the skin. In fact, most regular cleansing can’t get rid of the dead skin, which is why steaming can be beneficial.

To steam the skin, fill up a bowl with very warm water. Make sure steam is rising from it, but that it’s not hot enough to burn you. Add some tea tree oil or something else that you enjoy smelling. Lean over the bowl, draping a towel over your head to catch all the steam. Relax in this position for about five minutes.


Even though you can skip this step, it can be very relaxing. Massaging the face can promote better skin elasticity, which helps with the detoxifying process. You can just gently rub the face by moving your fingers in circular motions. However, you can also use a variety of products to help with your facial massage. Generally, women like to do this because it relaxes them and makes it feel a little bit like being in a spa.

To complete this step, make sure you have dried your skin from the steam. Use your favorite lotion and apply it to the face using a stroking motion. Then, stroke downwards from the hairline to the jaw, stopping at the chin. Repeat this motion many times, kneading the cheeks and forehead gently in small circles.

Face Mask

Using a facial mask can help with a variety of skincare concerns. Many women use one as part of their regular skin care regimen, and not just when they are performing a facial at home. You can find a mask that is already made and designed for your skin type. Women tend to like these best because they can choose masks designed for sensitive skin or other skin concerns such as dry or oily skin.

Find a mask that best meets your needs. You can find packets that are single-serve or large containers from which you can extract product each time you perform a treatment.

Apply the mask to the entire face and relax. Keep it on for about 10 minutes and then use warm water to rinse it off. The mask gently exfoliates the skin and makes it look younger and fresher. A clay mask is also an excellent choice, though you can find cream, serum, and other options. Depending on the one you pick, you may have to peel it off.


It is best to use a toner. Place the toner on a cotton pad or ball and remove all product residue from your face – i.e. from the mask, massage oils and cleansers. The toner can also hydrate the skin, preparing it for the moisturizer. You can find various products designed for different types of skin. For example, tea tree oil can help remove extra oil, and seawater can soothe and soften your skin.


Moisturizing is an important part of home facials. If you use a deep cleansing mask, it is important to replenish the skin’s oils so that it remains supple and soft. Most women like the feeling of putting on a light moisturizer because it does not feel heavy and might have a pleasant scent. Just apply a small amount of moisturizer onto your fingers or a cotton ball. Pat it gently into the skin, which has just been dampened with a toner.

Consider a Treatment Device

You can find a variety of devices to help with your home facial. Many women like to use them because it makes the process faster and is easier.

NowMi is an advanced facial treatment that you can use at home. Just like a professional facial, it combines four steps. The NowMi device exfoliates, nourishes, enriches the skin, and protects it from damage. It infuses the skin with vitamins E and C, as well as hyaluronic acid. Plus, it boosts the oxygen content in the skin and protects it from pollution, smoke, and more.

It features effervescent tablets and some lubricating gel. Using the NowMi device you can enjoy a spa-quality treatment in the comfort of your home which lets you look your very best.


If you are someone who likes facials, you may want to consider performing an at-home facial. When you choose the right products, you get the best ingredients. Plus, you may receive some free advice that can help you improve your home facial. Most importantly, make the most of it and enjoy your relaxing your spa-like day at home.

Lifestyle Changes Post Coronavirus – What Is The New Normal?

To win the battle against the new coronavirus (covid 19), we must accept long-term lifestyle changes. Apart from maintaining personal hygiene, community hygiene at large must also be observed. Let’s expect many lifestyle changes post coronavirus.

Once this health crisis ends, we can expect many challenges. But, I believe that having a positive mindset greatly helps to overcome the current situation. We might not be able to bring things back to normal, but at least we are open to the “new normal”.

In December 2019, we anticipated that 2020 would bring us to a new decade of positiveness, and no one imagined that a pandemic would come our way.

Many lives across the globe have been massively affected. Even though lockdown restrictions are starting to be alleviated, the pandemic will still affect everyone’s life in so many ways.

Everyone, especially governments and medical experts in different parts of the world are doing their best to end this pandemic. Yes, this crisis will come to an end, and that is for sure.

Another thing that is for sure is that our lives will be significantly different from what we used to have before the outbreak. To give you valuable ideas about lifestyle changes post coronavirus, keep reading!

Life After the Covid 19 Pandemic

We have all been exposed to the new reality that the pandemic imposed.

We all watched the news about the dangers of being physically close to other people, how governments enforced social distancing and lockdowns, and how many people went into quarantine.   Not only that, many people lost their jobs and some businesses needed to stop their operations, and learning for many students was disrupted.

COVID 19 has affected us as individuals and as a collective.  Here are some thoughts on how it is going to change our lives.

New Toll on Medical Health Workers

On the frontline in the fight against COVID 19 are the healthcare workers. All over the world, these professionals have made  extreme sacrifices and have worked under incredibly difficult conditions to help COVID 19 patients.  

For example, in areas where there was a shortage in personal protective equipment, healthcare professionals engineered DIY-solutions such as bin bags and ski goggles. That way, they were able to  show up at work, but were at a high risk of being infected.

Most of them are working overtime while witnessing how patients suffer from the disease. They find the anxiety of knowing that they might be infected very challenging. Their job is physically, emotionally and mentally draining.

More than burnouts, front-liners may display symptoms of post-traumatic stress order. Once this crisis subsides, let’s prepare ourselves for the recovery process which many healthcare workers will need to undergo.

Dependence on Technology  

Because of the pandemic, digital platforms have become the most prominent way for us to be entertained and educated. We also use these platforms to work from home. From WhatsApp group to Zooming clients, this global health crisis is really turning us to be tech-dependent.

Since face-to-face meetings have been restricted, business owners are increasingly relying on video conferencing. By doing so, they can continue their operations and ensure that they not risking their health. Therefore, communicating virtually is the current norm.

Public Health Surveillance

Surveillance has been used in most countries to safeguard against the spread of COVID 19.

Countries like Singapore, Israel, and Germany are using  phone tracking data which is necessary for locating and alerting people who might be infected. Meanwhile, in addition to phones, South Korea is using bank transactions and CCTV footage for the tracing process.

This public health measure erases a layer of privacy from the life of citizens and also brings a new dimension to both ethics and privacy issues. But, this measure will soon become a norm.

New-Formed Habits

Since the virus is contagious, awareness of both public and personal hygiene measures has increased. Health authorities have been educating the public and advocating regular handwashing using soap. When going grocery shopping people are advised to wear a facemask. Social distancing is also strictly implemented.

These brand new habits may still linger after the lockdowns are lifted. As a result, we can expect overall better hygiene. So, don’t be surprised to continuously see people wearing facemasks in public places as they become more cautious about their health.

Cheaper Urban Housing

While cities will maintain their important role in human society, many people may decide to move to the periphery.  From the start of the pandemic, densely populated cities were at the center of the storm, with higher hospitalization and death rates.

Contrary to the less densely populated areas, cities like New York suffered the most from the health crisis.  In the near future, we can expect more people to move to the periphery, and for governments to allow substantial changes in zoning regulations and land use in order to facilitate the shift in population. This trend will encourage remote work as well as the development of autonomous transport systems that will help people to avoid crowded subways.

When people are forced to the periphery, cities will become cleaner and safer. The dispersion of population will enable  many jobs to spread out while reducing the costs of urban housing.

Artificial Intelligence

Even before the pandemic, the importance of artificial intelligence was stressed in the healthcare setting. However, due to the damage brought about by the coronavirus, its importance has escalated.

During the outbreak, an artificial intelligence platform assisted sending out of the first alerts. Not only that, but algorithms were also utilized in screening people who were potentially affected. Artificial intelligence is helping many hospitals across the world in managing their resources. Interestingly, it is used to speed up the process of vaccine research.

Furthermore, the developments in AI in terms of healthcare will help improve preparedness for the next possible public health crisis.

Remote Work

Since the start of coronavirus pandemic, the work environment has drastically changed. As offices in different parts of the world were closed, employees took advantage of virtually logging in from home, where they love to be, surrounded by their families.

None of us know when exactly when the offices will reopen or how business owners will effectively ensure the safety and health of their employees once they do.

The pandemic has had a major impact on how human resource teams work, prepare, and communicate. Businesses have had to become more flexible, find innovative solutions and adapt to the needs of their employees in order to make sure that everyone can work effectively.  Many were not surprised by the new approach to common areas as well as conference rooms that include a more spaced out area with fewer chairs.

The outbreak is now transforming how employers in different sectors view remote work. In fact, a large number of companies have been forced to adopt new communication styles, attitudes and policies about how work should be performed.

Although offices still exist, some of the jobs are now done at home. Many companies are discovering that their employees are more productive when they work from home. It is no doubt that increased flexibility in terms of working arrangements will become the norm.

Immunity Passport As New Travel Document

The immunity passport functions the same way a regular passport does. Once it is confirmed that you do not have the virus, the passport enables you to resume to your everyday routine. If there is a risk that you are a COVID 19 carrier, you are required to stay indoors. While the UK government is already considered it, many other countries are also planning to have them. The immunity passport can become a travel requirement in several countries.

The Emirates Airline has been conducting quick COVID-19 blood tests for passengers who want to travel from Tunisia to Dubai. By performing on-site blood tests, airlines can assure the safety of their passengers and provide COVID 19 test certificates for the country of destination.


In just a few months, the coronavirus massively changed the way we live. I found it frustrating at first, but all I can do is accept these changes.

Our lifestyle and working habits will not be the same as before. From the way we communicate with others, go to the supermarket, travel, or practice personal hygiene – everything has changed!

Well, are you ready to face these changes? Will you embrace these changes? Can you adopt these changes easily?

You may find lifestyle changes challenging at first, but we may just need to accept them. After all, we need to ensure that we are safe and healthy. While we are complying to safety measures, we are not only protecting ourselves but also the people around us. Don’t worry. This crisis will end soon.

Oxygen therapy for oily skin complexion

If you suffer from an oily skin complexion, oxygen therapy can help you balance your skin so that it looks and feels its very best.  The main challenge with oily skin complexion is that on the one hand, you need to keep it clean and remove excess oil, yet on the other hand, you don’t want to strip away all of the oil.  If the skin is over-cleansed, the body produces even more oil to compensate for the perceived dryness.  The NowMi oxygen therapy for oily skin complexion can help you deeply cleanse your facial skin and at the same time nourish it with vitamins and minerals.  The nourishment includes hyaluronic acid which keeps it moist as well as vitamins C and E that rejuvenate and protect it.

What causes oily skin?

Oily skin complexion is caused by the over production of sebum.  Sebum is an oily, waxy substance that contains triglycerides and fatty acids (57%), wax esters (26%), squalene (12%), and cholesterol (4.5%).  It is produced by the body’s sebaceous glands and it moisturizes the skin and protects it from water evaporation.

Sebaceous gland

The main causes of oily skin are:

  • Genetics: Skin type is often hereditary.  You may have inherited a genetic makeup that includes larger sebaceous glands that produce excess oil.
  • Over-cleansing: If you have an oily skin complexion and you wash or scrub it too hard with an abrasive tool or a coarse exfoliator, you might strip it of its moisture.  This will cause the sebaceous glands to increase their production of oil.  For this reason, it is important to cleanse your skin with a gentle yet powerful cleanser.
  • Cosmetics: Using the wrong cosmetics for your skin type can cause it to become oiler.  For example, some products may dry out the skin thus stimulating excess oil production while others may make it too greasy. If you have oily skin, it is recommended to use products labeled as either oil-free or noncomedogenic
  • Hormonal changes:  Androgens are the hormones often associated with increased oil production.  When Androgen levels fluctuate, such as during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy or menopause, this can stimulate the production of sebum.  Stress and illness can also cause changes in hormonal levels which may result in oiler skin.
  • Environment: If you live in a hot and humid environment, this may lead to the body producing excessive amounts of sebum. On the other end of the spectrum, if you live in very cold climates which dry out the skin, your body may respond by increasing its sebum production.
  • Medication: Different medications can stimulate the body to produce excess amounts of sebum. Hormonal replacement medications or oral contraceptives have been shown to do so, as well as medications that dehydrate the skin.
  • Diet: Junk food and highly processed foods that are high in sugar and refined carbohydrates, can cause the skin to become oiler and greasier.

The NowMi Oxygen therapy for oily skin complexion

The NowMi Pro vitamin C oxygen facial treatment kit

The NowMi treatment is an ideal treatment for oily skin.  It enables you to cleanse your skin gently, get effectively, keeps it well hydrated and nourishes it.  Best of all, the treatment takes only 5 minutes and you can carry it out in the comfort of your own home.

Facial skin cleansing:

The NowMi treatment has two cleansing functions- a daily cleanser and a weekly exfoliation.   

Daily cleanser:

The daily cleanser is highly effective yet very gentle on the skin.  It has a surface with silicone micro-fingers upon which the NowMi gel is applied and massaged into the skin. In addition, the NowMi device uses sonic energy to improve the cleansing action.  The device emits 6,000 sonic pulses per minute which ensures that the cleansing gel penetrates and cleans all of the pores.  You can use the cleanser more than once a day if your skin is very oily. 

Cleansing with sonic energy is highly effective and research has shown that facial skin cleansing with sonic energy is up to 6 times more efficient than hand washing alone. 

In addition to cleansing the skin, the treatment infuses the skin with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals which nourish it and help it to remain healthy and balanced.

Weekly Exfoliation

The NowMi treatment gently exfoliates the skin and removes its outermost layer.  This layer contains dead skin cells and accumulated dirt such as makeup residue and pollution.  In general, oily skin is more prone to breakouts because the excess oil mixes with the dead skin cells and dirt.

The exfoliation is carried out using the NowMi vitamin C effervescent tablet.  The tablet has a slightly coarse texture.  When it is mixed with the NowMi lubricant gel and massaged into the skin, the tablet effectively, yet softly, exfoliates the skin.

The NowMi treatment is clinically proven and uses the same science-backed skin oxygenation technology as the OxyGeneo treatment- a professional facial that has been used in clinics since 2013.

The NowMi treatment stimulates the body to oxygenate itself from within. It does this by creating a carbon-dioxide rich environment on the skin’s surface.  The skin then responds by sending oxygen-rich blood cells to the treatment area.  As a result of the oxygenation, the active ingredients are best absorbed by the skin and the treatment results are optimized.


The NowMi oxygen therapy for oily skin complexion lets you enjoy the best of all worlds- it provides you with a spa-quality treatment in the comfort of your home.  The treatment helps keep oily skin in check- it makes sure it is clean and at the same time nourishes and hydrates it.  Try it today and discover a facial routine that will give you the skin you have always wanted!

Say Goodbye to Oily Skin and Get Beautiful Healthy Summer Skin

Say Goodbye to Oily Skin and Get Beautiful Healthy Summer Skin | NowMi

With May behind us and summer just around the corner (or possibly already having arrived in some parts of the USA this is a great time to think about your facial skin and its health. Many of us spend lots of time outside in the summer, enjoying the great weather and spending time with friends and family. While this is important, it’s also vital that you are mindful of your skin’s health during this time. Below are the most important tips for keeping healthy summer skin.

The sun and heat may damage your skin, or at the very least may not help it to be in the best condition that it could. Sunlight and hot weather have the potential to dry out your skin, and excessive sun exposure without protection can lead to undesirable side effects like premature aging.

Some people have oily facial skin, which humid weather may exacerbate. The reason is that the weather may stimulate the overproduction of sebum. This is especially true of the skin on your face. However, using certain products and skincare methods can help reduce the amount of oil your body produces. This article goes into detail about the ways you can protect your facial oily skin during the summer and help it to be as healthy as possible while still enjoying the season.

Sebaceous gland

One of the most important things to use on your skin during the summer is sunblock. You should apply sunscreen all year, even in winter, but it’s especially important in the summer. We spend more time outside in the summer and the UV rays that we are exposed to tend to be harsher than those in the winter. The rays can damage the skin, which is why it’s essential to protect it whenever possible.

putting sunscreen on facial oily skin

Medical advice suggests that you use a sunblock that offers at least SPF 30, if not higher. The sunscreen should be applied to any skin that is exposed to the sun, especially your face, and you need to make sure to reapply it every couple of hours while you are outside in direct sunlight.

Many sunblocks can be oily or cause oily skin. Finding a sunblock that is less oily can help you reduce the risk of skin breakouts or other side effects caused by using oily sunscreen, especially on your face ensuring healthy summer skin .

Skin Care

Something that can help your skin’s health is treating it somewhat differently in the warmer months than you would in winter. For many of us, winter weather is dry and cold and can cause our skin to dry out as well. If you use lots of heavy moisturizers during the winter, you might like to consider reducing the number of cosmetic products that you use during the warmer months, as well as choosing creams that are lighter. Using a moisturizer on your face that is thick during warm and humid weather can result in facial oily skin and breakouts.  If possible, avoid using oily skincare products in the warmer months. If you have oily skin, the moisturizer you choose can make or break your complexion. Oil is a natural part of our skin, but when your face becomes too oily it can cause problems like breakouts and irritation.

Another thing that is useful to consider during the summer is the other ways you treat your skin. When it’s very hot, many of us end up taking more than one shower per day to keep feeling cool and clean, especially if we have an active lifestyle. Long, hot showers can dry out the skin on your face, and it can start producing excess oil to compensate. This is why it’s good to take short showers.  Warm and humid weather can cause too much oil production in the skin, especially on the face. It is also wise to use a cleanser with salicylic acid, and reapply a gentle moisturizer throughout the day if necessary.

For many people, the combination of thick makeup on their face, as well as humidity and sunblock, can result in skin irritation and possibly breakout due to the excess of oil on the face, especially if you have oilier skin. Your sebaceous glands can get blocked by certain types of products, especially if they are very oily. This is why it’s important that you reconsider your makeup in the summer, and use products that have no oil, or won’t make your facial skin oily. This way, you won’t have to worry about how to get rid of oily skin as a result of the hot weather and ensure healthy summer skin .

Other Sun Protection

There are more ways to protect your facial oily skin than with just sunblock. While sunblock is a must if you are going to be outside, preventing your skin from being exposed to the sun in the first place is simply the best method to prevent any damage. This advice may be especially useful for people with oily skin, who might not want to keep reapplying sunscreen throughout the day if they can avoid it. If your skin dries out due to the sunlight, it can produce excess oil to compensate. If you already have oily skin, this can be quite troublesome.

However, this advice may be a little too extreme for many. One of the best parts of summer is of course that one gets to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful weather, so staying inside for most of the day may not be so appealing! You can also try wearing clothes with long sleeves and a wide-brimmed hat when you go outside. This is a good way to prevent oily skin from sun exposure, without having to forego spending time in the sun altogether. This type of skin does not have to prevent you from enjoying your summer.

Don’t forget your parasol when going to the beach

Another thing that you can do is simply be mindful of your sun exposure and try to keep it moderate. If you are going to be out in the sun for several hours, then it’s a good idea to alternate the time you spend in direct sunlight with the time you spend in the shade. For example, if you go to the beach then you might want to bring a parasol with you, and make sure to take some breaks from being directly in the sun. It can be uncomfortable to wear clothing that covers most of your skin if the weather is warm, so this is a good alternative. It’s of course always important to wear sunblock in the summer and ensure to reapply it every few hours. This is true even if you have oily skin. While oily skin can become more easily irritated than other types of skin, it is vital that you protect it with sunblock.

These are some of the best tips you can use to prevent oily skin and keep your skin fresh during the summer.

Anti-aging treatment for smokers

Anti-aging treatment for smokers | NowMi

If you are a smoker, you are probably well aware that smoking causes your skin to age prematurely For this reason, you need to take extra good care of your facial skin and provide it with additional oxygen, nourishment and hydration.

The NowMi anti-aging vitamin C oxygen facial treatment for smokers performs several actions that can help your facial skin look younger- it deeply cleanses the skin, oxygenates it, infuses it with vitamins and minerals and hydrates it.   By regularly carrying out the NowMi treatment, you can reinvigorate your skin and help it counter the negative effects of cigarette smoke.

Facial skin damage caused by smoking

Smoking is harsh on your facial skin for several reasons. 

  1. It robs your skin of oxygen.  Research has shown that in just 10 minutes of smoking, the oxygen supply to the body and facial skin decreases for almost an hour.   
  2. Cigarette smoke causes collagen to breakdown.  Collagen is the primary protein that gives the skin its firmness.  Once it is damaged, the skin begins to sag and wrinkles form.
  3. Smoking dries out the skin.
  4. Smoking damages the capillaries and often causes them to break.   It also causes the blood vessels to dilate.   As a result, the skin tone becomes uneven and sometimes redder.
  5. The constant squinting and pursing of the lips while smoking results in smokers’ lines around the mouth and brows.

The NowMi Anti-aging Treatment for Smokers

The NowMi Pro vitamin C oxygen facial treatment is an at-home treatment that you can carry out anywhere, anytime.  The treatment takes only 5 minutes and leaves your facial skin feeling fresh and reinvigorated. 

The effectiveness of the NowMi treatment has been clinically proven, and it uses the same science-backed skin oxygenation technology as the OxyGeneo treatment- a professional treatment used in clinics since 2013.

NowMi Clinical results
Graphical representation of facial skin smoothness improvements compared to baseline and after the 3rd and 6th treatments. After 3 weekly treatments facial smoothness increased by 15.1% and after 6 weekly treatments facial skin smoothness continues to increase to 25.9%.

The main advantages of the treatment for smokers are:

  • Skin oxygenation:  The NowMi Pro weekly treatment is unique since it stimulates the skin to oxygenate itself from within. It does this based on a scientific principle called the Bohr effect.  The Bohr effect states that if the skin is bombarded with carbon dioxide, the body will send in oxygen-rich blood cells to the area to counter the effects of the carbon dioxide.  Therefore, during the NowMi treatment, a chemical reaction takes place that produces millions of carbon dioxide microbubbles.  The body then responds and oxygenates the treatment area from within the skin.

    The added oxygen does wonders for smoke-damaged skin. The oxygen increases the metabolism of the skin cells and helps them to function properly.  It enables them to clear away waste (such as smoke buildup) and best absorb vitamins and minerals.  As a result, the skin looks younger and more refreshed.

  • Stimulate the body to produce more collagen:  The NowMi weekly treatment infuses the skin with vitamins C and E.  Vitamin C is known to play a vital role in the production of collagen.  The NowMi treatment replenishes the skin’s supply of vitamin C and enables it to produce more collagen.  Once you have more collagen in your skin, smokers’ lines such as crow’s feet around the eyes and deep lines around the lips form more gradually. 

    Vitamin C and E are also powerful antioxidants that help curb the negative effects of free radicals.  Free radicals are unstable atoms that form as a result of smoking.  They cause cell damage and death which results in premature skin aging. 
  • Skin hydration:  The NowMi treatment infuses the skin with 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 is capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water!  Hyaluronic acid plays a major role in keeping tissues moist and well lubricated and as a result counters the drying effects of cigarette smoke.
  • Deep cleansing:  The NowMi treatment has two skin cleansing mechanisms.  The first is the daily cleanser.  The daily cleanser has a surface with silicone micro-fingers.  The NowMi cleansing gel is placed onto the micro-fingers and massaged into the skin.  In addition to the massaging action, sonic energy further improves the cleansing action and ensures that each pore is thoroughly cleansed.  Research has shown that facial skin cleansing with sonic energy is up to 6 times more efficient than hand washing alone. In addition to cleansing the face, the NowMi gel infuses the skin with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals. 

    The NowMi weekly facial treatment exfoliates the outermost layer of the skin.  This layer includes dead skin cells, dirt formed by cigarette smoke, pollution, makeup residue etc.  The exfoliation deeply cleanses the pores and enables them to function properly. 

    By cleansing the skin on a daily basis and exfoliating it on a weekly basis, you can limit the damage caused by smoke residue. Clean skin means that the pores can breathe easily and this translates into skin with a natural and healthy complexion.


The NowMi is an excellent anti-aging treatment for smokers.  It oxygenates the skin, stimulates the production of collagen, hydrates it and deeply cleanses the pores.  Used regularly, it can counter the negative effects cigarette smoke has on your facial skin and help you enjoy a healther and more youthful complexion.
