Vitamin C- The Wonder Vitamin
In a recent article in Vogue Magazine, New-York based Dermatologist Dr Dennis Gross stated that “Vitamin C has a wonderful duality: it both brightens and firms the skin…Not only does it help to lighten and break up pigmentation you might already have, it also prevents dark spots or sunspots from forming in the future. Vitamin C, in all its brilliance, also increases your skin’s natural production of collagen, giving skin radiance and vitality.” So there you have it, the secret to younger looking and healthier skin is not in man-made chemicals or exotic ingredients, it is in the vitamin C found in every orange!
So, where is the catch, you ask? The catch is in the quality of the vitamin C that you apply to your skin.
As neuroscientist Dr Claudia Aguirre explains “L-ascorbic acid is the main form of vitamin C”. The key challenge is that it is a very unstable molecule that dramatically losses its efficiency if exposed to oxygen, light, or its freshness is compromised. Dr Claudia Aguirre therefore concludes that “The main point is to have a stable form for vitamin C that gets delivered to the skin.”
Once the vitamin C starts to degrade, its color turns yellow. This is the reason why many of the serums containing vitamin C have a yellow tint. If you are using a such serum beware that most probably the vitamin C within it has lost its potency.
The Solution: the NowMi Personal Vitamin C Oxygen Facial
The NowMi device was created to deliver the purest form of vitamin C to the skin (click here to read more about the benefits of vitamin C). Therefore, the vitamin C is stored in a sealed pouch until use. The pouch protects the vitamin from exposure to oxygen or light and also guards its freshness. The vitamin C comes in the form of an effervescent tablet. Once the pouch is opened, the effervescent tablet is massaged onto the face together with the NowMi lubricant gel. The effervescent tablet gently exfoliates the skin and removes all dirt, oil and dead skin cells. After the skin has been exfoliated, it optimally absorbs the vitamin C.
In addition to the vitamin C, the NowMi lubricant gel contains vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that repairs and protects the skin (for more information about the benefits of Vitamin E please click here). Furthermore, vitamin E further boosts the efficiency of the vitamin C, especially when it comes to protecting the skin from photodamage.
The NowMi personal vitamin C oxygen facial is unique since it stimulates the body to ‘oxygenate itself from within’. As opposed to traditional oxygen facials in which the oxygen is applied onto the skin using a spay gun, the NowMi treatment causes a chemical reaction within the skin that stimulates the body to send oxygen rich blood cells to the area. It does this based on a biological principal called the Bohr effect. The Bohr effect states that when the body needs to treat an area that has an excess amount of carbon dioxide (C02) it produces oxygen rich cells and sends them to the treatment area.
The NowMi effervescent tablet contains high concentration of pure vitamin C as well as sodium bi-carbonate and citric acid. When the effervescent tablet is combined with the lubricant gel, a reaction between the citric acid and the sodium bicarbonate occurs which creates micro-bubbles of CO2 in the gel and subsequently on the skin. As a result, the body responds by sending oxygen to all layers of the facial skin. The oxygen helps the cells to best absorb the vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid and therefore the treatment results are superior.
With the NowMi personal vitamin C oxygenation facial you can:
- Rejuvenate your skin
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Improve textural imperfections
- Firm your skin & tighten pores
