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
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.
There are many advantages to oxygen facials that infuse vitamin C into the skin. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that slows down the signs of aging and helps the skin revitalize itself. Spa oxygen facials are an excellent way to infuse your skin with vitamin C. Another and more novel approach is the NowMi treatment. The NowMi treatment uses pure vitamin C to achieve the best results and, unlike spa treatments, it can be performed in the comfort of your home.
