Today’s fast-paced life takes its toll on our skin. It is constantly exposed to air pollution, air conditioners that dry one’s skin, hot and cold weather which dries and tightens the skin and even makeup which blocks the pores for several hours at a time. All of these conditions that we live with on a daily basis prevent our skin from absorbing the oxygen that it needs to shine. The skin contracts and prevents enough oxygen from entering the skin.
Oxygen infusion facials give your skin the extra oxygen that it needs. The skin and lungs are the only organs that absorb oxygen from the air as well as from the bloodstream. Oxygen is absorbed in every skin layer of the epidermis and the dermis. This oxygen is critical in helping the skin to maintain itself on an ongoing basis.
Traditional Oxygen Infusion Facial
Traditional oxygen infusion facials are performed at a spa with a special machine. First, the skin is cleaned from dry cells and whatever other wastes may have accumulated. An aesthetician passes over your face and actually blows oxygen onto your face with a pen-like blowing machine. Cream and serums containing vitamins and minerals are then used to replenish life-giving nutrients to the skin.
Spas provide oxygen infusion facials which last from 30 minutes to an hour. In order to maintain the skin’s quality the recommended treatment plan is one a week for the first six weeks and then maintenance treatments once a month. However, one could also have the treatment just before a big event, such as a wedding, anniversary, or business meeting where you are presenting in front of a group. At spas and beauty salons, the facials usually run between $80 and $300 for all or part of the treatment. Many famous celebrities swear by the oxygen infusion facial, including Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, Jessica Biel, Miley Cyrus, Channing Tatum, and Fergie Thicke.
The NowMi Oxygen Infusion Facial
The NowMi oxygen infusion facial is perfect for treating damaged skin, whether it is dry, oily or just lackluster. The treatment is also convenient because you can do it yourself at home and it can be completed in five minutes.
The NowMi treatment performs four skincare actions at the same time: exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection. The treatment also uses Sonic energy which enhances the effectiveness of each action.
The NowMi oxygen infusion facial starts with exfoliating the skin. The exfoliation cleans and removes all dirt, makeup residue and oil. This cleansing is important because our skin is exposed to pollution and air contaminants that clog the pores. It is also important for people suffering from acne outbreaks since it limits the development of blackheads. Most importantly, the facial exfoliation removes the dead cells on the outer layer of the facial skin, and prepares the skin to absorb the infused nutrients.
After the skin has been exfoliated, it is highly receptive to the infusion of nourishing vitamins and minerals. An effervescent tablet containing vitamin C is used to penetrate the skin’s dermal layer and nourish the cells. Unlike other vitamin C rich products, the effervescent tablet is vacuum sealed which ensures that its potency isn’t harmed. Simultaneously, the vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid contained in the NowMi lubricant gel are infused into the skin.
Unlike traditional facial treatments in which the oxygen is externally infused into the skin, the NowMi treatment stimulates the body to oxygenate itself from within! It does this based on a scientific principle called the Bohr effect. The Bohr effect states that when the body has an excess amount of carbon dioxide, it counters with oxygen. The NowMi treatment stimulates a chemical reaction on the skin’s surface that creates a rich carbon dioxide environment, and the body then sends oxygen-rich blood cells to the treatment area.
The NowMi oxygen infusion facial treatment replenishes the skin’s vitamin C and E supply which enables the skin to both protect itself and also to repair damage caused by free radicals.
Oxygen infusion facials are a great way to care for your skin. They ensure that your skin is thoroughly cleansed, hydrated and nourished which are key elements in any skincare regimen. The NowMi treatment enables you to enjoy all of the benefits of a professional spa oxygen treatment with a clinically proven, home-use device. Best of all, treatment takes only five minutes and you can do it anywhere, anytime.
