The summer months are amazing- the days are longer, the sun shines, the weather is warm and many people take some time off for some quality rest and relaxation.  When it comes to your skin however, the summer can be the harshest period of all. If left unprotected, the skin can be exposed to high levels of UV rays which damage it and cause premature aging.  Also, the heat often dries the skin and causes it to be dehydrated.

In order to enjoy the best of all worlds- a great summer and great skin – all you need to do is to be more attentive to the needs of our skin.

First of all, wear sunscreen.  Buy yourself a shading hat and sunglasses and wear them when you are in the sun. You should also limit the amount of time you are in the sun at peak heat hours.  Skin oxygenation treatments are also incredibly effective in helping your skin during the summer months.

Why you should choose a skin oxygenation treatment in the summer

A facial skin oxygenation treatment in the summer is a great way to care for your skin.  The treatment infuses the skin with vitamins and minerals that help it repair from sun damage and also hydrates it.

Typically the facial skin oxygenation treatment involves several steps – skin cleansing, exfoliation, hydration and nourishment.  During the nourishment stage, a special machine is used to spray pressurized oxygen into the skin.  The oxygen elevates the oxygen levels within the skin’s cells and improves the oxygen flow from the subcutaneous capillaries to the surface of the skin.  This improved circulation rejuvenates the skin helps to slow down the signs of aging.  Typically, the oxygen is combined with botanical, vitamin, mineral and nutrient extracts.  The oxygen helps these nourishing extracts to penetrate the skin cell’s and therefore dramatically improves their effectiveness.

Following the facial skin oxygenation treatment the skin feels plumper and fresher and has a youthful glow.   The treatment has become very popular and has been used by top celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Katie Perry, Megan Fox, Jennifer Anniston, Brad Pitt, Kate Moss, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Campbell, Justin Timberlake and Gwyneth Paltrow. Madonna is one of the biggest advocates of the treatment and is said to have a machine in every one of her properties.

The NowMi Oxygenation treatment

The NowMi treatment takes the traditional facial skin oxygenation treatment to the next level.  Instead of infusing the skin with oxygen, the treatment stimulates the skin to oxygenate itself from within.  It does this by using a scientific principal called the Bohr effect.   The Bohr effect states when there is an excess of C02 (carbon dioxide) on the skin, the body responds by sending oxygenated blood cells to the area. So, during the NowMi treatment, when the effervescent tablet comes into contact with the lubricant gel, a chemical reaction occurs which produces a high concentration of C02 on the skin.  The body then responds and sends oxygen rich blood cells.  Once the area becomes highly oxygenated, the blood circulation improves, and the body optimally absorbs the healing vitamins.

And what vitamins we talking about? The NowMi treatment infuses the skin with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid.   Vitamin C and vitamin E are powerful antioxidants which help the skin protect itself from sun damage and the hyaluronic acid keeps the skin moisturized.

Here are some of the highlights of what they do:

  • Vitamin C – Vitamin C plays a vital role in skin rejuvenation, repair and protection. The vitamin is a highly effective antioxidant which helps the body to neutralize free-radicals and slow down the signs of aging. In addition, it helps to stabilize the collagen fibers and to create new collagen which leads to firmer skin. Furthermore, Vitamin C is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-pigmentary attributes.
    *
  • Vitamin E – Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps the skin to protect itself against pollution, stress, smoke, unhealthy food and more. The skin contains more vitamin E than any other nutrient, which emphasizes its key role in nourishing and protecting the skin. In addition to its anti-aging benefits, it hydrates the skin and reduces scars.
  • 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 the skin looks and feels more supple.

The NowMi facial treatment involves 4 actions: skin exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.  It also uses sonic energy which significantly increase the effectiveness of each action.   Best of all, the treatment takes only 5 minutes and can be performed in the comfort of your own home.
