Oxygen therapy for face

Oxygen therapy for face | NowMi

Human cells require oxygen to survive. Without a steady supply of oxygen, the cells are damaged and eventually die. Oxygen therapy for the face boosts the oxygen levels in the cells which optimizes their performance. When the skin is oxygenated, it has a fresher and more youthful complexion.

The troubling reality is that our skin is oxygen deprived. Due to the industrial revolution and deforestation, it is estimated that the earth’s oxygen levels have decreased from 35% to as little as 17% in certain cities.  Our skin is constantly bombarded with pollution, smoke and sun damage which significantly hinder its supply of oxygen, and as a result, the facial skin ages prematurely.

Oxygen facials have been around for about 20 years.  Slowly but surely, they have become one of the most popular skincare treatments with top celebrities hailing them as their fountain of youth.  Madonna is one of the most vocal advocates, and other celebrities that use it include Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, Channing Tatum, Jessica Biel, Miley Cyrus, Fergie and Robin Thicke. Victoria Beckham has been quoted as saying “there is nothing like oxygen treatment…it really helps you look and feel your best”.

Oxygen therapy for face treatments are calming and relaxing.  During treatment, an aesthetician uses a small pressure gun to deliver a stream of high-pressurized oxygen into the skin.  The average treatment lasts between half an hour to an hour.  Commonly, in addition to the oxygen, nourishing vitamins and minerals are infused into the skin to increase effectiveness and enhance treatment results.

What are the benefits of oxygen therapy for face?

When the facial skin cells receive the oxygen they need, their performance is optimized. This translates into:

1. Increased collagen production:  Collagen is the most important protein in the skin and provides it with firmness and elasticity.  Unfortunately, as we age, the amount of collagen produced by the body dramatically declines.  As a result, the skin starts to sag and wrinkles appear.  One of the key benefits of oxygen therapy treatments is that they stimulate the body to create new collagen.  This results in firmer facial skin and a marked reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Skin detoxification: On a daily level our skin is damaged by pollution, smoke and other extrinsic factors that contaminate the cells.  The oxygen helps increase the cells’ metabolism and clear away harmful waste. Once the waste is cleared, the cells are better able to repair themselves and also absorb nourishing vitamins and minerals. 

3. Faster cell turnover: Skin cells have a limited lifetime.  Once they die, they are replaced by new cells.  Oxygen plays a critical role in cell regeneration. It increases the rate at which new cells grow as well as the cell turnover rate.  The newer cells give the skin a fresher and more youthful appearance.

Immediately following a skin therapy treatment, your facial skin will feel tighter and it will have a natural glow.  By undergoing a series of treatments, you can slow down the skin aging process and limit the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

The NowMi treatment enables you to enjoy all of the benefits of a spa-quality oxygen facial in the comfort of your home.  Designed for today’s busy lifestyle, the treatment is simple to perform and takes only 5 minutes.  Just like a professional spa, the treatment includes 4 skincare action- exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.

1. Exfoliation: During exfoliation, the outermost layer of the skin is removed.  The exfoliation deeply cleanses the skin and clears away dead skin cells, dirt and makeup.  The exfoliation is performed using the NowMi effervescent tablet which has a coarse surface.  The tablet is mixed with the NowMi gel and is massaged into the skin.  Following the exfoliation, the facial skin cells are best able to absorb the nourishing vitamins and minerals. 

2. Nourishment:  The skin is nourished with vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid.  Vitamin C plays an important role in the formation of collagen and helps the skin to repair itself. Vitamin E helps cells to regenerate and has anti-inflammatory properties.  Hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin and prevents dehydration.

3. Oxygenation: Unlike professional spa treatments that infuse oxygen into the skin, the NowMi treatment oxygenates the skin from within!  The way it works is that the NowMi treatment stimulates the production of millions of carbon-dioxide microbubbles on the skin’s surface.  In response, the body sends oxygen-rich blood cells to the treatment area and oxygenates it from within.  The process is completely natural and is based on a scientific principle called the Bohr effect.

4. Protection:  Vitamin C and vitamin E are potent antioxidants that protect the skin from damaging free-radicals. Free radicals are “unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging”.  Free- radicals form as a result of sun exposure, pollution, cigarette smoke etc.  Vitamin’s C and E protect the skin and help it combat the free radicals.

Skin recovery after quitting smoking

Our bodies are wondrous! Even after years of cigarette smoking, once you quit, your body immediately begins to heal.   One of the first places that you can see and feel the difference is your facial skin.  According to a study conducted in South Korea, marked improvements in the skin’s color can be measured within just four weeks!

Skin recovery after quitting smoking | NowMi

What happens to your skin after you quit smoking?

Once you quit smoking, your body starts to undo the damage caused by cigarettes.  Specifically,  

1. Vitamins are restored to the skin– When you smoke, your body is bombarded with toxins- carbon monoxide, tar, cyanide, formaldehyde and other harmful chemicals.  As a result, the brain sends a signal to divert vitamins away from your skin to other organs that need them more.  The skin is then deprived of nourishing vitamins, especially vitamin C, and it is unable to function properly.  This is manifested in premature aging, increased pigmentation and uneven skin tone.  Once you quit smoking, the skin’s supply of essential vitamins is restored and it begins to revitalize and repair itself.

2. The skin cells receive the oxygen they need– Our skin is made up of several layers- Epidermis, Dermis and Hypodermis.  When you smoke, the Nicotine reduces the blood flow, and this severely damages the Dermis. The Dermis is critical because it is the scaffold that gives the skin its firmness and resilience. Once the cells receive less oxygen, the skin tone changes and becomes paler and yellower.  It also becomes dryer and flakier and is more vulnerable to damaging external factors such as overexposure to the sun and pollution.  As soon as you quit smoking, the skin cells begin to receive the oxygen they need and start to function normally.  As mentioned above, within a month you should expect the color of your skin to improve.

3. The skin begins to produce normal quantities of collagen and elastin– Collagen and elastin are proteins which are vital to the skin. Collagen provides the skin with its strength and elastin is the source of its elasticity. When you smoke, these proteins are damaged by the toxin chemicals in tobacco smoke.  As a result, the skin begins to age prematurely.  Very commonly, fine lines and wrinkles form around the mouth because of the pursing of the lips during smoke inhalation, and wrinkles form around the eyes because of repeat squinting (the eyes close in order to keep out the smoke).  Once the body starts to produce new collagen and elastin the skin begins to look and feel better – it becomes firmer, tighter and regains its natural glow. 

Is the damage reversible?

Skin recovery after quitting smoking is a very individual process. It is a function of how many years you smoked, genetics, diet, level of sun exposure etc.  Here are some important skincare tips you should adopt once you have quit smoking:

1. Wear sunscreen– Broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen will protect your skin and prevent the sun from destroying the new collagen in your skin.  

2. Nourish your skin– Apply creams and serums that contain antioxidants.  Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and vitamin E is incremental in skin healing.

3. Exfoliate frequently– Skin exfoliation removes dead skin cells and send a message to the brain to produce new collagen.

4. Consume fish-oil supplements– Omega 3 can help reduce inflammation, accelerate healing and help the Dermis retain more moisture.

There are several methods that can be used to help people quit smoking. Some of the most common methods include:

  1. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT): NRT products such as nicotine gum, patches, lozenges, and inhalers provide a controlled dose of nicotine to help ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings.
  2. Medications: Medications such as bupropion and varenicline can help to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
  3. Behavioral therapy: This can include individual or group counseling, which can provide support, motivation, and strategies for coping with cravings and triggers.
  4. Hypnotherapy: This uses hypnosis to help change the way the person thinks about smoking and to help them develop new habits and behaviors.
  5. E-cigarettes: This method uses a battery-powered device that vaporizes a liquid (e-liquid) containing nicotine, propylene glycol, and flavorings. Research is still ongoing about the long-term effects of e-cigarettes, but it is considered by some as a less harmful alternative to combustible cigarettes.
  6. Cold turkey: This method involves quitting smoking abruptly without using any aids or support.

Skin recovery after quitting smoking with the NowMi treatment

The NowMi treatment is the perfect solution if you want to revitalize your skin after you have quit smoking.   The NowMi Pro device performs two skin actions – daily cleansing and a weekly vitamin C infusing facial.  The treatment takes only 5 minutes and can be performed in the comfort of your home.

The NowMi Pro daily:

The NowMi Pro daily enables you to deeply cleanse your skin.  In addition to the cleansing gel, the NowMi Pro device uses sonic energy which emits 6,000 pulsations per second.  Combined they ensure that each pore is thoroughly cleansed.  In addition to the cleansing action, the NowMi gel infuses the skin with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals which strengthen and revitalize it.

The NowMi Pro Weekly:

The NowMi Pro weekly performs 4 skincare actions – exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.

Exfoliation: The skin is deeply exfoliated using an effervescent tablet.  The tablet is combined with the nourishing gel and easily glides over the skin.  The exfoliation stimulates the production of collagen and also removes all dead skin cells, dirt and oil.   Most importantly, it sends a message to the brain to produce more collagen.

Nourishment:  The NowMi treatment infuses the skin with vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid.  After you quit smoking, the best thing you can do for your skin is replenish its supply of these active ingredients which enable it to heal and reinvigorate itself.

The vitamin C found in the NowMi treatment has the highest degree of potency. The reason is that it is vacuum packed and shielded from air and water. If vitamin C is exposed to air or water, it loses its effectiveness, and you should be cautious of vitamin C products that come in reusable bottles or tubes.  Vitamin C works wonders on the skin- it is incremental in the production of collagen, it limits the formation of pigmentation and it gives the skin a young and glowing appearance. 

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin and helps it heal.   It also hydrates the skin and reduces scars.

Hyaluronic acid is capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water and plays a major role in keeping the skin moist and lubricated.

Oxygenation:  When you smoke, your facial skin cells are deprived of oxygen.  To counter this, the NowMi treatment enables you to deeply oxygenate the cells “from within”.  The treatment uses a scientific principle called the Bohr effect.  The Bohr effect states that when the body needs to ward off an excess amount of carbon dioxide, it does so by using oxygen.  Therefore, during the NowMi treatment, a layer of carbon dioxide bubbles is produced on the skin.  As a result, the body sends oxygen-rich cells to the treatment area and by default oxygenates all of the cells.  This process is completely natural and pain-free and reinvigorates the skin cells.  It also enables them to best absorb the infused nutrients.

Protection: Vitamin C and E are powerful antioxidants that protect the skin.  By replenishing the skin’s supply of these vitamins, the skin is able to fight free radicals and limit damage caused by sun exposure.

Watch how to use the NowMi Pro device

Summary:

Skin recovery after quitting smoking can be relatively fast. Within a few weeks, its coloration improves and slowly it begins to feel softer and smoother. In order to expedite the healing process, you should nourish it with reinvigorating vitamins.  Additionally, by increasing the amount of oxygen in the cells, you can help them function normally.  The NowMi treatment enables you to do all of this in a fast and simple home-based treatment.  Try it today and see the difference for yourself.

Oxygen Infusion Facial

NowMi oxygen infusion facial

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

oxygen facial treatment
Traditional oxygen 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

NowMi Oxygen 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.

Exfoliation

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.

Nourishment

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.

Oxygenation

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.

Protection

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.

Skincare for Smokers

skincare for smokers | NowMi

Cigarette smoke takes its toll on facial skin.  The chemicals inhaled inhibit the amount of oxygen the skin cells receive which makes the skin appear duller and paler. Nicotine itself causes the skin to dehydrate and have a dry look and feel, and the repetitive cigarette puckering action causes small lines to form around the mouth. However, with the right skincare for smokers routine you can limit the negative effects of cigarette smoke on your skin! The key lies in nourishing and hydrating it.

Revitalize your skin with vitamin C

When you smoke, you inhale over 4,000 harmful chemicals.  The chemicals cause the body to produce fewer red blood cells and reduce the oxygen flow in the body.   

One of the manifestations of this is the narrowing of the capillaries. Capillaries are the smallest vessels in the body.  They play an important function – they transfer oxygen and other nutrients and minerals from the bloodstream to tissues in the body and collect carbon dioxide and waste materials from the cells.  Once the capillaries narrow, the blood’s circulation is hindered. This leads to slower cell healing and may cause cell death.  Frequently, the cells don’t receive enough oxygen and nutrients which causes the skin to lose its glow and become duller and discolored. 

Furthermore, the lack of nutrients often results in the formation of dark spots on the facial skin.  For example, the skin is less able to protect itself from sun damage and sunspots appear more easily.  

The chemicals also harm the collagen and elastin in the skin.  Collagen and elastin are the main proteins that provide the skin with strength and elasticity.  When they weaken, the skin begins to wrinkle and sag.

In order to counter these predicaments, what you need is vitamin C! Vitamin C is a miraculous vitamin that:

  • Helps the skin create new collagen and prevents degradation of existing collagen.  The collagen firms the skin and prevents premature aging. It also enables the body to repair itself from damage caused by cigarette smoke.
  • Restores the skin’s vitality.  The vitamin provides the skin with a youthful and radiant appearance.
  • Limits the formation of unwanted pigmentation and provides facial skin with a more even and uniform texture.
  • Protects the skin.  Vitamin C helps the skin fight free-radicals and limits the formation of sunspots.

Counter dehydration with Hyaluronic Acid

Nicotine is diuretic.  This means that it stimulates the body to increase its production of urine which in-turn promotes dehydration.  In addition, as mentioned above, the facial skin cells receive less oxygen and nutrients which results in drier skin.

One of the best ways to hydrate your skin is by infusing it with Hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid is an essential chemical naturally produced by the body. Its primary function is to retain water and it can hold 1,000 times its weight in water!   It helps facial skin cells remain moist and hydrated which gives the skin a supple complexion.

Exfoliate to prevent the formation of blackheads

Cigarette smoke clogs up the pores and causes blackheads.  The T-zone, which is the area of the face that runs across the forehead and down its center, is especially susceptible. It is therefore important to cleanse your face daily and exfoliate it on a weekly basis. 

The NowMi Treatment- the best skincare for smokers

The NowMi Pro facial treatment is an excellent solution that can minimize facial skin damage caused by smoking.  The NowMi Pro skincare for smokers routine consists of two parts- daily facial cleansing and a weekly nourishing facial.

NowMi Pro is now on sale with Special Offer: Buy now a NowMi Pro Kit from the inventor of OxyGeneo and receive Free of Charge a NowMi refill kit (valued at $99) that will give you 3 extra months vitamin C oxygen facial treatments at home.

Daily cleansing:  The NowMi cleansing gel thoroughly cleanses the skin.  It is used in combination with sonic energy which exponentially increases the effectiveness of the gel and ensures that each pore is deeply cleansed. In addition, the cleansing gel infuses the skin with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals which strengthen and revitalize it.

Weekly facial:

The NowMi Pro facial treatment performs 4 actions simultaneously- skin exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection

1. Exfoliation– During exfoliation, the outermost layer of the skin is removed. The exfoliation clears away all dirt (including cigarette smoke residue), makeup and dead skin cells.

2. Nourishment– The NowMi treatment infuses the skin with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid.

  • Vitamin C: The vitamin C is delivered in the form of an effervescent tablet.  Unlike other vitamin C enriched serums and creams, the vitamin C used in the NowMi treatment is sealed until use.  This guarantees the most potent delivery of the vitamin.  The reason is that once vitamin C is exposed to air or light it is damaged and loses its effectiveness. More than any other vitamin, vitamin C can revitalize and repair damaged facial skin cells.
  • Vitamin E: Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps the skin to protect itself against cigarette smoke, pollution, UV rays and more. The skin contains more vitamin E than any other nutrient. Vitamin E has many anti-aging benefits and also hydrates the skin.
  • Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid prevents skin dehydration and provides it with a supple and healthy look.

3. Oxygenation– the NowMi skincare for smokers treatment can give your skin what it needs the most- oxygen!  The NowMi treatment uses a scientific principle called the Bohr effect to stimulate the body to send oxygen rich blood to the treatment area. The NowMi treatment creates a carbon dioxide rich environment on the skin’s surface and the body responds by infusing the cells with oxygen.  The added oxygen reinvigorates the skin’s cells and increases circulation.

4. Protection – Vitamin C and E protect the skin from damaging extrinsic factors such as UV rays, cigarette smoke and pollution.  By replenishing the skin’s supply of these vitamins you can reduce the amount of damage caused to the facial skin.

Conclusion:

Smoking harms the facial skin and changes its complexion. It causes it to look dull and dry as well as age prematurely. These effects can be significantly reduced by deeply cleansing the skin and infusing it with vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid.  The NowMi skincare for smokers routine does just this.  Best of all, treatment takes only 5 minutes and can be performed in the comfort of your home.

Wintertime Oxygen Treatment

Wintertime Oxygen Treatment | NowMi

During the winter months the facial skin tends to dry out more easily.  There are many reasons for this- the cooler temperatures, the reduced humidity in the air, the overly hot showers we tend to take, and the fact that we spend so much time in overheated indoor environments.

All of these factors take their toll on our skin.  As cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Sam Bunting says “Heated air inside causes low humidity, which leads to water evaporating from our skin…This can cause cracking, flaking and irritation and leave skin with a lackluster, parched appearance.”  The skin is further damaged by the constant shifting between the heated indoors and the cold outdoors.  This process causes the facial capillaries to rapidly contract and expand which can lead to skin redness and broken veins.  And when it comes to super-hot showers, dermatologist Dr. Nick Lowe advises “Hot baths and showers can dissolve the protective barrier in the skin which will eventually lead to dryness”.

One of the best ways to take care of your skin is to pamper it with a wintertime oxygen treatment.  The treatment focuses on hydrating the skin and restoring moisture.

Advantages of a wintertime oxygen treatment

oxygen facial treatment
Traditional oxygen facial

1. Oxygen is vital for the skin– During the winter months, the dry air reduces the oxygen content in the skin. To counter this, the wintertime oxygen treatment infuses the skin with pure oxygen.  As a result, the cells are revitalized and reinvigorated.  They are able to better absorb nourishing vitamins and minerals, clear waste and heal themselves.

 2. Anti-aging effect– One of the reasons for premature skin aging is a decrease in the levels of oxygen in the skin.  As we age, the blood capillaries in the facial skin tend to clog, and as a result, the cells don’t function at their full capacity.  The facial skin becomes paler, thinner and more fragile.  By infusing the skin with oxygen, you can dramatically slow down the signs of aging and enjoy a more youthful appearance.

3. Deep skin hydration – During the wintertime oxygen treatment, the skin is infused with nourishing vitamins and minerals.  One of the key ingredients used is 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 can hold 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.

If you lead a busy lifestyle and it is hard for you to find the time to go to a spa to get your wintertime oxygen treatment, there is an alternative!  The NowMi treatment enables you to enjoy a spa-quality treatment in the comfort of your own home.  Best of all, the treatment takes only 5 minutes and costs a fraction of the price of its spa equivalent.

The NowMi Pro is a remarkable device that performs two functions- daily sonic cleansing and weekly vitamin C oxygen facial.

The daily cleanser deeply cleanses the skin and infuses it with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals which strengthen and revitalize it.

The weekly vitamin C oxygen facial treatment performs 4 actions- skin exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection. 

  • Exfoliation: During exfoliation, all dead skin cells, makeup and dirt are removed from the facial skin’s surface.
  • Nourishment:  The skin is infused with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid.  As mentioned above, Hyaluronic acid plays a major role in helping the facial skin retain its moisture, especially during the dry winter months.
  • Oxygenation:  The NowMi treatment uses a unique technology to ‘oxygenate itself from within’. The same science-backed skin oxygenation technology of the OxyGeneo treatment that has been used in professional clinics since 2013. Unlike traditional oxygen facials in which the oxygen is infused from the outside, in the NowMi oxygen facial treatment, the oxygenation process is internal, and as a result, all of the cells are oxygenated and optimally absorb the infused vitamins and minerals.
  • Protection:  The NowMi treatment replenishes the skin’s supply of vitamin C and E. As a result, the skin is better able to protect itself during the winter months from UV rays and other ailments that dry it out.

Conclusion:

The winter months are harsh on the skin.  The decline in temperatures, the dry air and the constant shift between heated and unheated environments take their toll on our skin.  Wintertime oxygen treatments can help a lot!  They can restore lost moisture, nourish the skin, and help it remain balanced.

NowMi Weekly Facial

Just like a professional spa facial treatment, the NowMi weekly facial treatment includes 4 actions- skin exfoliation, nourishment oxygenation and protection. 

1. Skin exfoliation– deep skin cleansing is an incremental part of caring for oily skin.  The exfoliation removes the outer layer of the skin and clears away all excess oil, makeup and dirt.  The exfoliation is carried out using the NowMi effervescent tablet.  The tablet has a coarse texture and when it is mixed with the NowMi lubricant gel it easily glides across the skin.  During the treatment, you need to message the tablet on the skin in circular motions to exfoliate it.  In addition, the NowMi device uses sonic energy which increases the efficiency and speed of the exfoliation process.  The device transmits 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute which ensures that every pore is thoroughly cleansed. 

2.   Skin nourishment– the NowMi treatment infuses the skin with vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid.  Vitamin C is excellent for oily skin. Since the main problem with oily skin is that it produces excess amounts of sebum, by increasing the amount of vitamin C in the skin, you can help it become more balanced.  Furthermore, vitamin C boosts the collagen levels in the skin which slows down the signs of aging. It also reduces the amount of pigmentation and helps the skin to look smooth and radiant.  

Vitamin E is renowned for its antioxidant properties and its ability to limit skin damage caused by extrinsic factors such as UV rays, pollution and smoke. Vitamin E also hydrates the skin and helps it heal faster.

Many people with oily skin over-cleanse their skin and cause it to dry out.  While cleansing the skin to reduce excess sebum is critical, it is important to hydrate the skin so that it maintains its natural elasticity and suppleness.  This is where Hyaluronic acid comes in.  Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in moisturizing the skin and ensuring the skin doesn’t dry out.

3.  Skin oxygenation– many leading spas offer oxygen facial treatments.  The professional treatments use a high-pressure jet spray gun to infuse pure oxygen into the skin.  While these treatments work well, the NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment has taken oxygen treatments to the next levels and stimulates the body to ‘oxygenate itself from within’.   

The oxygenation effect is based on a scientific principle known as the ‘Bohr Effect’.  According to the Bohr Effect, if the body is bombarded with high concentrations of carbon dioxide, it responds by oxygenating the area. Therefore, the NowMi treatment creates high concentrations of carbon dioxide on the skin’s surface and the body then sends oxygen-rich blood cells to counter this imbalance. Because of the oxygenation effect, the vitamins and minerals to be optimally absorbed by the cells. 

4. Skin protection:  The NowMi treatment helps to prevent skin damage. Once the skin’s supply of vitamin C and E have been restored, it can optimally protect itself from damaging factors such as UV rays, pollution and smoke.

NowMi Daily Cleanser

The American Association of Dermatology recommends to daily wash oily skin.   The NowMi Pro device comes with a daily cleanser that removes all excess sebum from your face.  The cleanser is applied using silicone micro-fingers, and the cleansing action is further enhanced using sonic energy. The sonic energy pushes the cleansing solution into the pores and ensures they are thoroughly cleaned. Scientific research has demonstrated that cleaning the face with sonic energy is up to 6 times more efficiant than hand washing.

The NowMi cleansing gel not only cleanses the skin but also infuses it with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals. These active ingredients nourish and hydrate the skin and help it keep balanced and looking its best.

Facial for oily skin

Facial for oily skin |  NowMi

If you suffer from oily skin, professional facials are an excellent way to care for your facial skin and ensure it is getting what it needs to look its very best.  While there are many different types of facials for oily skin, you should be looking for a facial treatment that performs two actions- deep cleansing and intense nourishment.

Oily skin occurs when the body produces too much sebum.  Sebum is a complex mixture of fatty acids, sugars, waxes and other natural ingredients created by the sebaceous glands.  Sebum is vital for healthy skin as it coats, moisturizes and protects it. 

In order to care for oily skin, the facial skin needs to be frequently cleansed in order to get rid of the excess amounts of sebum.  However, this needs to be done with care.  It is important to deeply clean the face but not to strip it of all of its moisture and nourishing vitamins and minerals.  If the cleansing action is too aggressive, the body receives a signal that the skin is dry and dehydrated and in turn produces even more sebum!

Once the skin has been cleaned and all of its pores are open, you need to add moisture and revitalizing nutrients.  This is important in order for the skin be healthy and balanced.

Recommended Professional Facial treatments for Oily Skin

Bazar Magazine recommended these 5 facials for those suffering from oily skin.

1. Ultimate Hydra-02 Experience. The treatment involves a 90-minute facial at a cost of $420.  The treatment combines a deep-cleansing Hydrafacial with glow-boosting Intraceuticals.  The treatment begins with the thorough cleansing of the skin to remove all dirt and makeup.  Then, using a suction tip, all dead skin cells are removed. If necessary, the aesthetician manually extracts all blackheads and whiteheads that clog up the pores. Next, exfoliating acids are applied to the skin. The acids are potent yet gentle, and accelerate cell renewal and smoothen the skin’s surface.  Lastly, an oxygen jet infuses a nutrient-rich serum into the skin.  The serum consists of a blend of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins that nourish and soothe the skin, rejuvenate it and give it a glowing look.

2. PAI Skin Confidence Detox and Decongest Facial.  The treatment costs $200 for a 90-minute session.  This professional facial is hailed for its use of organic ingredients. The PAI Skincare products contain at least 70% organic ingredients which makes them ideal for individuals with sensitive or allergy-prone skin.  To treat the extra shine that people with oily skin have, the PAI treatment uses Himanthalia Sea Algae which is a rich mineral known to regulate the activity of the sebum glands.  Ghassoul clay is also used to remove impurities from the pores and nourish the skin.  Furthermore, Rice Water, which is rich in amino acids is used to rebalance moisture levels and provide an even skin tone.  The treatment includes a therapeutic lymphatic drainage massage, which helps the body remove toxins and enhance the effect of the organic active ingredients.

3.  Cryolift Correct Hydra Therapy Facial.  The treatment costs $210 and lasts 75 minutes.  Often, incorrect treatment of oily skin brings it to a point where it is dehydrated.  The Cryolift Correct Hydra Therapy Facial is designed to deeply hydrate and restore it to a balanced condition. The treatment uses Hydra Cryo-Serum which contains Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin and collagen to firm the skin. While the serum is being applied, the aesthetic practitioner uses a cryotherapy probe to cool the skin’s temperature.  The cooling action reduces inflammation, aids in the absorption of the serum, calms the sebum glands and contracts the skin. Next, a relaxing facial massage helps to tone the skin.  Finally, a  Hyaluronic Youth Mask is used to seal in moisture providing the skin with a smooth and supple look.

4. SK-II Skin Clarify Facial.  A 60-minute treatment for $200. Individuals with oily skin often suffer from clogged or enlarged pores and have frequent breakouts (this is the reason why many people with oily skin suffer from acne).  To deeply cleanse the skin, the SK-II facial uses a machine called the Aqua Clean. Aqua Clean uses different types of solutions along with advanced vacuum technology to deeply cleanse and exfoliate the skin.  The advantage of the treatment is that it is very effective without using harsh exfoliants.  One solution used is the Ionic Silver Gel which kills the p-Acne, the bacteria that causes acne.  Another solution is the Skin Recovery Gel which contains high levels of vitamin E.  The vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports the skin’s natural self-healing process. 

5. Detox Anew.  The treatment costs 80$ and lasts 75 minutes.  During the Detox Anew treatment, a plant-based exfoliant is used to deeply cleanse the skin.  The exfoliant is used in conjunction with an Azulene-based calming mask, which removes toxins and impurities from the skin. Then, different layers of nutrient-rich active ingredients are applied to the skin which replenish and restore its natural glow.

Oxygen facial for greasy skin

Oxygen facial for greasy skin

Dealing with greasy skin can be very frustrating.  The greasy facial skin appearance occurs because the skin produces too much sebum.  Sebum is an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands that helps keep the skin moisturized.  While sebum is vital for the facial skin, if the body creates too much of it, the skin becomes oily.  Another problem is that the sebum reflects light which causes the skin to look greasy.

The good news is that it has never been easier to take care of greasy skin. An oxygen facial treatment for greasy skin performs two vital actions that help the skin keep balanced- it deeply cleanses the skin and rids it of unwanted sebum while at the same time nourishes it so that it doesn’t get dry.  The treatment is completely non-invasive, pain-free and has no downtime.

How the professional oxygen facial for greasy skin works?

A professional oxygen facial treatment

The oxygen facial in a spa involves several steps.  The first step is exfoliation of the skin.  During the exfoliation, the outermost layer of the skin is removed.  This layer contains dead skin cells, dirt, oil and makeup.  By deeply cleansing the skin, the excess layers of sebum are removed and the pores are cleansed.  As an aside, the excess sebum tends to clog up the pores which leads to frequent breakouts and acne.   

Next, using a specialized spray gun, the facial skin is infused with oxygen.  Once the skin cells receive high dosages of oxygen they function better.  The oxygen increases the blood circulation in the treatment area and promotes the production of collagen. 

In addition to the oxygen, healing vitamins and minerals are also infused into the skin.  The exact combination depends on the aesthetician performing the oxygen facial treatment.  Some of the most popular serums used are:

1. Vitamin C: Vitamin C helps curb the production of excess sebum and deeply nourishes the skin.  It improves the radiance of the skin and protects it from damaging effects of environmental pollution.

2. Hyaluronic Acid.  Hyaluronic acid is excellent for oily skin.  It helps the skin maintain moisture and improves its texture and elasticity.

3. Botanical Extracts: The extracts limit the excess production of oil and reduce the size of the pores.

4. Lactic Acid: The lactic acid helps to shrink the size of the pores, improve skin texture and reduce dark spots.

5. Retinol Serum:  For those new to Retinol, lower dosages are used.  Retinol has been shows to help balance greasy skin.

6. Gr+G Serum:  An organic formula that contains grapeseed oil that regulates sebum production and keeps the skin clear.  Additionally, it contains vitamin E that moisturizes and nourishes the skin.

While traditional oxygen facials are great, some people find it hard to fit a spa treatment into their busy schedule.  Also, the treatment can be costly and this can pose a barrier.

The NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment was designed to make oxygen facials available to all!  The NowMi treatment offers a spa-quality oxygen facial in a home-use device.  The treatment takes only 5 minutes and costs a fraction of the price of its spa equivalent.

The NowMi oxygen facial is ideal for treating greasy skin.  The treatment performs 4 actions – skin exfoliation, nourishment, skin oxygenation and nourishment.  

  • Skin exfoliation: The skin is gently exfoliated using a vitamin C rich effervescent tablet.  While the exfoliation feels very gentle it is highly effective and removes all excess sebum.  Additionally, the treatment also uses sonic energy which ensures that every pore is thoroughly cleansed.
  • Skin nourishment:  The skin is infused with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid.  The vitamin C helps the facial skin to normalize the production of sebum and remain balanced.  The vitamin E nourishes the skin and helps it to look smooth and radiant. The Hyaluronic acid enables the skin to hold onto moisture and prevents it from drying out.
  • Skin oxygenation:  Unlike traditional oxygen treatment, the NowMi treatment oxygenates itself from within. It does this based on a scientific principle called the Bohr effect. NowMi uses the same science-backed skin oxygenation technology of the OxyGeneo treatment that has been used in professional clinics since 2013. As a result, the treatment area is infused with oxygen and the cells optimally absorb the vitamins.
  • Skin protection:  Vitamin C and vitamin E are powerful antioxidants that protect the skin from harmful UV rays and pollution.  The UV rays can dry out the skin and stimulates the excess production of sebum.

In addition to the NowMi facial treatment, the NowMi Pro device comes with a daily cleanser.  The cleanser deeply cleanses the skin and nourishes it with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals.  The cleanser is applied using silicone fingers and uses sonic energy which ensures that the cleansing gel penetrates and cleans all of the pores. Research has shown that facial skin cleansing with sonic energy is up to 6 times more efficient than hand washing alone.

Personal Oily Face Treatment

Personal oily face treatment | NowMi

Oily skin occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin produce an excess amount of sebum.  Sebum is an oily, waxy substance that coats, moisturizes and protects the skin. It is crucial for the skin since it forms a protective barrier on the skin’s surface that limits water from evaporating.  If you have oily skin, it is recommended that you adopt a personal oily face treatment in order to reduce the amount of sebum on your face while at the same time ensuring that your skin is sufficiently nourished and hydrated.  

Symptoms of oily skin:

People with oily skin often have skin that has:

  • A shiny or greasy appearance
  • Skin that appears rough or thick
  • Clogged pores and blackheads
  • Large pores on the skin
  • Frequent breakouts

The main reason for oily skin is genetic.  However, hormonal changes or high-stress levels can also stimulate the body to create excess amounts of sebum.

Personal oil face treatment

By adopting a personal oil face treatment, you can significantly limit the amount of oil on your face.  Here are important skin care tips recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology.

1. Wash your face every morning, evening and after exercise.  When washing your skin, gently massage it with a cleanser and avoid scrubbing it.  The scrubbing irritates the skin and can make it look even worse.

2. Choose skin care products that have an ‘oil free’ and ‘noncomedogenic’ label.   This label means that the products will not clog your pores or cause acne.  You can find cleansers, moisturizes and makeup with these labels.

3. Select a gentle foaming face wash.  A common mistake when treating oily skin is to choose a strong face wash for oily skin in order to dry out the skin.  However, if the face wash is too harsh it irritates the skin and stimulates it to produce even more sebum.  So, stick to the mild and gentle products.

4. Avoid oil-based or alcohol-based cleansers.  These cleansers irritate the skin.

5. Moisturize your face daily. Even though you have oily skin, it is very important that you keep it hydrated.  It is recommended to use a moisturizer that has an SPF of 30 or higher in order to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

6. Always wear sunscreen when you are outdoors.  Sunscreen helps prevent skin damage such as wrinkles and age spots.  Choose sunscreens that contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide since these products limit acne breakouts. Also, stay away from sunscreens that contain fragrance or oils.

7. Only use oil-free, water-based makeup. Always remove your makeup before going to bed, and never go to sleep with makeup.

8. Use blotting papers throughout the day.  Use the papers gently and don’t rub them on your face.  If you rub them, it will only spread the oil to other areas on your face.  Instead, gently press the paper against your face and leave it on for a few seconds to absorb the oil.

9. Try not to touch your face too much.  If you touch your face too much you can spread dirt, oil and bacteria from your hands to your face.  Try to touch your face only when you are cleansing it, moisturizing it or applying makeup.  Make sure your hands are clean before you touch your face.

It also gives even tone and adds the natural whitening skin. In addition to this, vitamin c protect your skin from damage especially from sun rays.”  In addition to the vitamin C, the skin is also infused with Hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid is excellent for oily skin since it keeps the facial skin moisturized at the right level, so it doesn’t need to produce any more sebum to keep hydrated.   Finally, the skin is infused with vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that protects and nourishes the skin.
