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. 

Damaging effect of UV rays on the skin

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 and slows down the aging of the skin. Typically, the oxygen is combined with vitamin, nutrient, botanical, and mineral 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 principle 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:  Research has shown that vitamin C plays a critical role in skin rejuvenation, protection and repair.  The vitamin aids in the creation of new collagen and helps the skin to look firmer, tighter and plumper.   It is also a potent antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals.  Free radicals are formed as a result of extrinsic factors such overexposure to UV rays or pollution and cause premature skin aging. Furthermore, the vitamin has anti-inflammatory properties and helps the skin to repair itself.
  • 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 is principally used to hydrate the skin and prevent it from drying out.  It helps the skin to maintain a supple appearance and reduces the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.  Several studies have shown that it also helps the skin to appear smoother.  Additionally, hyaluronic acid plays a role in wound healing as it signals the body to create more blood vessels in the treatment area.

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 you can carry it out at home!
