Say Goodbye to Oily Skin and Get Beautiful Healthy Summer Skin

Say Goodbye to Oily Skin and Get Beautiful Healthy Summer Skin | NowMi

With May behind us and summer just around the corner (or possibly already having arrived in some parts of the USA this is a great time to think about your facial skin and its health. Many of us spend lots of time outside in the summer, enjoying the great weather and spending time with friends and family. While this is important, it’s also vital that you are mindful of your skin’s health during this time. Below are the most important tips for keeping healthy summer skin.

The sun and heat may damage your skin, or at the very least may not help it to be in the best condition that it could. Sunlight and hot weather have the potential to dry out your skin, and excessive sun exposure without protection can lead to undesirable side effects like premature aging.

Some people have oily facial skin, which humid weather may exacerbate. The reason is that the weather may stimulate the overproduction of sebum. This is especially true of the skin on your face. However, using certain products and skincare methods can help reduce the amount of oil your body produces. This article goes into detail about the ways you can protect your facial oily skin during the summer and help it to be as healthy as possible while still enjoying the season.

Sunblock

One of the most important things to use on your skin during the summer is sunblock. You should apply sunscreen all year, even in winter, but it’s especially important in the summer. We spend more time outside in the summer and the UV rays that we are exposed to tend to be harsher than those in the winter. The rays can damage the skin, which is why it’s essential to protect it whenever possible.

putting sunscreen on facial oily skin

Medical advice suggests that you use a sunblock that offers at least SPF 30, if not higher. The sunscreen should be applied to any skin that is exposed to the sun, especially your face, and you need to make sure to reapply it every couple of hours while you are outside in direct sunlight.

Many sunblocks can be oily or cause oily skin. Finding a sunblock that is less oily can help you reduce the risk of skin breakouts or other side effects caused by using oily sunscreen, especially on your face ensuring healthy summer skin .

Skin Care

Something that can help your skin’s health is treating it somewhat differently in the warmer months than you would in winter. For many of us, winter weather is dry and cold and can cause our skin to dry out as well. If you use lots of heavy moisturizers during the winter, you might like to consider reducing the number of cosmetic products that you use during the warmer months, as well as choosing creams that are lighter. Using a moisturizer on your face that is thick during warm and humid weather can result in facial oily skin and breakouts.  If possible, avoid using oily skincare products in the warmer months. If you have oily skin, the moisturizer you choose can make or break your complexion. Oil is a natural part of our skin, but when your face becomes too oily it can cause problems like breakouts and irritation.

Another thing that is useful to consider during the summer is the other ways you treat your skin. When it’s very hot, many of us end up taking more than one shower per day to keep feeling cool and clean, especially if we have an active lifestyle. Long, hot showers can dry out the skin on your face, and it can start producing excess oil to compensate. This is why it’s good to take short showers.  Warm and humid weather can cause too much oil production in the skin, especially on the face. It is also wise to use a cleanser with salicylic acid, and reapply a gentle moisturizer throughout the day if necessary.

For many people, the combination of thick makeup on their face, as well as humidity and sunblock, can result in skin irritation and possibly breakout due to the excess of oil on the face, especially if you have oilier skin. Your sebaceous glands can get blocked by certain types of products, especially if they are very oily. This is why it’s important that you reconsider your makeup in the summer, and use products that have no oil, or won’t make your facial skin oily. This way, you won’t have to worry about how to get rid of oily skin as a result of the hot weather and ensure healthy summer skin .

Other Sun Protection

There are more ways to protect your facial oily skin than with just sunblock. While sunblock is a must if you are going to be outside, preventing your skin from being exposed to the sun in the first place is simply the best method to prevent any damage. This advice may be especially useful for people with oily skin, who might not want to keep reapplying sunscreen throughout the day if they can avoid it. If your skin dries out due to the sunlight, it can produce excess oil to compensate. If you already have oily skin, this can be quite troublesome.

However, this advice may be a little too extreme for many. One of the best parts of summer is of course that one gets to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful weather, so staying inside for most of the day may not be so appealing! You can also try wearing clothes with long sleeves and a wide-brimmed hat when you go outside. This is a good way to prevent oily skin from sun exposure, without having to forego spending time in the sun altogether. This type of skin does not have to prevent you from enjoying your summer.

Another thing that you can do is simply be mindful of your sun exposure and try to keep it moderate. If you are going to be out in the sun for several hours, then it’s a good idea to alternate the time you spend in direct sunlight with the time you spend in the shade. For example, if you go to the beach then you might want to bring a parasol with you, and make sure to take some breaks from being directly in the sun. It can be uncomfortable to wear clothing that covers most of your skin if the weather is warm, so this is a good alternative. It’s of course always important to wear sunblock in the summer and ensure to reapply it every few hours. This is true even if you have oily skin. While oily skin can become more easily irritated than other types of skin, it is vital that you protect it with sunblock.

These are some of the best tips you can use to prevent oily skin and keep your skin fresh during the summer.

Anti-aging treatment for smokers

Anti-aging treatment for smokers | NowMi

If you are a smoker, you are probably well aware that smoking causes your skin to age prematurely For this reason, you need to take extra good care of your facial skin and provide it with additional oxygen, nourishment and hydration.

The NowMi anti-aging vitamin C oxygen facial treatment for smokers performs several actions that can help your facial skin look younger- it deeply cleanses the skin, oxygenates it, infuses it with vitamins and minerals and hydrates it.   By regularly carrying out the NowMi treatment, you can reinvigorate your skin and help it counter the negative effects of cigarette smoke.

Facial skin damage caused by smoking

Smoking is harsh on your facial skin for several reasons. 

  1. It robs your skin of oxygen.  Research has shown that in just 10 minutes of smoking, the oxygen supply to the body and facial skin decreases for almost an hour.   
  2. Cigarette smoke causes collagen to breakdown.  Collagen is the primary protein that gives the skin its firmness.  Once it is damaged, the skin begins to sag and wrinkles form.
  3. Smoking dries out the skin.
  4. Smoking damages the capillaries and often causes them to break.   It also causes the blood vessels to dilate.   As a result, the skin tone becomes uneven and sometimes redder.
  5. The constant squinting and pursing of the lips while smoking results in smokers’ lines around the mouth and brows.

The NowMi Anti-aging Treatment for Smokers

The NowMi Pro vitamin C oxygen facial treatment is an at-home treatment that you can carry out anywhere, anytime.  The treatment takes only 5 minutes and leaves your facial skin feeling fresh and reinvigorated. 

The effectiveness of the NowMi treatment has been clinically proven, and it uses the same science-backed skin oxygenation technology as the OxyGeneo treatment- a professional treatment used in clinics since 2013.

NowMi Clinical results
Graphical representation of facial skin smoothness improvements compared to baseline and after the 3rd and 6th treatments. After 3 weekly treatments facial smoothness increased by 15.1% and after 6 weekly treatments facial skin smoothness continues to increase to 25.9%.

The main advantages of the treatment for smokers are:

  • Skin oxygenation:  The NowMi Pro weekly treatment is unique since it stimulates the skin to oxygenate itself from within. It does this based on a scientific principle called the Bohr effect.  The Bohr effect states that if the skin is bombarded with carbon dioxide, the body will send in oxygen-rich blood cells to the area to counter the effects of the carbon dioxide.  Therefore, during the NowMi treatment, a chemical reaction takes place that produces millions of carbon dioxide microbubbles.  The body then responds and oxygenates the treatment area from within the skin.

    The added oxygen does wonders for smoke-damaged skin. The oxygen increases the metabolism of the skin cells and helps them to function properly.  It enables them to clear away waste (such as smoke buildup) and best absorb vitamins and minerals.  As a result, the skin looks younger and more refreshed.

  • Stimulate the body to produce more collagen:  The NowMi weekly treatment infuses the skin with vitamins C and E.  Vitamin C is known to play a vital role in the production of collagen.  The NowMi treatment replenishes the skin’s supply of vitamin C and enables it to produce more collagen.  Once you have more collagen in your skin, smokers’ lines such as crow’s feet around the eyes and deep lines around the lips form more gradually. 

    Vitamin C and E are also powerful antioxidants that help curb the negative effects of free radicals.  Free radicals are unstable atoms that form as a result of smoking.  They cause cell damage and death which results in premature skin aging. 
  • Skin hydration:  The NowMi treatment infuses the skin with 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 counters the drying effects of cigarette smoke.
  • Deep cleansing:  The NowMi treatment has two skin cleansing mechanisms.  The first is the daily cleanser.  The daily cleanser has a surface with silicone micro-fingers.  The NowMi cleansing gel is placed onto the micro-fingers and massaged into the skin.  In addition to the massaging action, sonic energy further improves the cleansing action and ensures that each pore is thoroughly cleansed.  Research has shown that facial skin cleansing with sonic energy is up to 6 times more efficient than hand washing alone. In addition to cleansing the face, the NowMi gel infuses the skin with vitamins E, B3, B5 and Dead Sea minerals. 

    The NowMi weekly facial treatment exfoliates the outermost layer of the skin.  This layer includes dead skin cells, dirt formed by cigarette smoke, pollution, makeup residue etc.  The exfoliation deeply cleanses the pores and enables them to function properly. 

    By cleansing the skin on a daily basis and exfoliating it on a weekly basis, you can limit the damage caused by smoke residue. Clean skin means that the pores can breathe easily and this translates into skin with a natural and healthy complexion.

Conclusion

The NowMi is an excellent anti-aging treatment for smokers.  It oxygenates the skin, stimulates the production of collagen, hydrates it and deeply cleanses the pores.  Used regularly, it can counter the negative effects cigarette smoke has on your facial skin and help you enjoy a healther and more youthful complexion.

Restoring facial glow after quitting smoking

Facial glow - nowmi

Once you quit smoking, your body immediately begins to repair itself from cigarette damage.  Fortunately, one of the first areas to improve is your facial skin, and research has shown that its color becomes more natural within a month.

One of the main problems with smoking is that it stimulates the formation of free radicals.  Free radicals damage cells in the entire body, and when it comes to the skin, they cause it to age prematurely and lose its glow.  However, as soon as you quit, the number of free radicals drops, and the skin begins to heal.  If you want to expedite this process, it is recommended to infuse your skin with vitamin C and E which are powerful antioxidants that neutralize free radicals and help your skin to reverse damage caused by smoking.

Smoking and Free Radicals  

Cigarette smoke contains a blend of poisonous toxins which harm human cells.  Much of the damage is caused by the formation of free radicals. Free radicals are atoms or molecules in the body that have an odd number of electrons.  Because of their odd number they are unstable.  They therefore search for an additional electron in order to have an even number of electrons and stabilize their energy.  As the free-radicals travel around the body in search of additional electrons, they injure and destroy healthy cells. 

Free Radicals | NowMi

In the skin, this is manifested in the destruction of collagen and elastin.  Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide the skin with its structural strength and elasticity.  Once damaged, the skin begins to prematurely wrinkle and sag. Commonly, ‘smoker’s lines’ which are vertical wrinkles that develop from the constant pursing of the lips during smoke inhalation, form around the mouth and wrinkles known as ‘crow’s feet’ develop around the eyes because of repeat squinting.

Free radicals also damage the blood vessels which hinders the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells.  As a result, the skin ages and loses much of its suppleness and glow.  

The body uses antioxidants to neutralize free radicals.  Antioxidants are molecules that have a large number of electrons and which can donate an electron to a free radical without sacrificing their own molecular balance.  By neutralizing the free radicals, the antioxidants slow down their damaging effects on the body.

Powerful Antioxidants- Vitamin C and E

Vitamin C | NowMi

The most powerful antioxidants are vitamins C and E. As mentioned above, these vitamins curb the effects of the free radical.  In addition, they fight off inflammation and clear toxins in the body.

Within the skin, vitamin C plays a critical role in collagen synthesis.  Collagen is used to heal and rejuvenate the skin.  Studies have found “that people who smoke, and those who are exposed to secondhand smoke, have reduced amounts of vitamin C in their bodies”.  This reduction leads to skin dullness and premature aging.

Vitamin E is also vital to healthy facial skin.  The skin contains more vitamin E than any other nutrient, which emphasizes its key role in nourishing and protecting it. In addition to its anti-aging benefits, it hydrates the skin and reduces scars.  One study has shown that in smokers, the body deviates the majority of the vitamin E to the lungs in order to protect them, leaving other tissues, including the skin, vulnerable to free radicals.

Once you quit smoking and your facial skin cells receive adequate supplies of vitamin C and E, they start to undo the damage caused by free radicals.  As a result, the skin tone improves, it becomes firmer and more supple, and its glow returns.

The NowMi Treatment for Restoring Facial Glow After Quitting Smoking

If you want to boost the amount of vitamin C and E in your skin, the NowMi treatment is an ideal choice. The NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment infuses the skin with vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid which help the skin stop the negative effects of free radicals.

The vitamin C used in the NowMi treatment is of a much higher quality than over the counter creams and serums.  The reason is that the vitamin C used in the NowMi treatment is sealed until use.  This is important because vitamin C loses its potency if it is exposed to air or light.  Therefore, when you see vitamin C rich products that have a yellow or brown tint, this means that they have been exposed to air or light and are no longer effective.   

The NowMi treatment performs 4 skin actions- exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.

Exfoliation: In order to optimize the penetration of the nutrients, the skin is exfoliated.  During the exfoliation, the skin is deeply cleansed and its outermost layer is removed.

Nourishment:  The skin is infused with vitamins C, E and Hyaluronic acid (see above for the benefits of vitamins C and E).  The Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and gives it a supple and glowing look.

Oxygenation: The NowMi treatment is unique in that it stimulates the body to oxygenate itself from within.  This ensures that all of the cells optimally absorb the active ingredients.  The oxygenation also boosts the cell’s metabolism and helps them get rid of toxins, such as those produced by cigarette smoke.  

Protection: Vitamin C and E protect the skin from free radicals that harm it.  After you quit smoking, the vitamins help protect against UV rays and pollution which also form free radicals in the skin and cause premature aging. 

Conclusion

Our bodies are amazing.  As many ex-smokers testify, as soon as they quit, their bodies started to cleanse themselves and undo the damage caused by cigarette smoke. When it comes to facial skin, the results can be quite immediate.  Within a month there is a marked improvement in the skin’s tone and within several months it feels healthier and more youthful. One of the key elements that determines the pace is the body’s ability to fight free radicals.  Vitamin C and E are powerful antioxidants that combat free radicals and help the skin restore its glow.  Using the NowMi treatment you can infuse your skin with vitamin C and E and significantly expedite the healing process.

The NowMi Pro Weekly

The NowMi Pro has been clinically proven to improve the skin’s texture, smoothen it, and deliver immediate and long-term results.

The NowMi Pro performs 4 simultaneous actions:

Exfoliation
:  The NowMi Pro device gently exfoliates the skin using the NowMi vitamin C rich effervescent tablet.  The tablet has a slightly coarse surface.  During treatment it is mixed together with the NowMi gel and massaged onto the skin.  The exfoliation removes the outermost layer of the skin which contains dead skin cells that clog up the pores.  The exfoliation also gets rid of all dirt and makeup residue.  Most importantly, the exfoliation enables the active ingredients to optimally penetrate the pores. 

Nourishment: The NowMi Pro treatment infuses the skin with vitamin C, E, and Hyaluronic acid.  The vitamin C (ascorbic acid) used in the NowMi treatment is stored within the effervescent tablet which is sealed until use. This is a really important factor that differentiates the NowMi treatment from other vitamin C rich treatments.  The reason is that vitamin C is sensitive to light and air and if it is exposed to them it completely loses its potency. You may see many serums and creams that claim to be rich in vitamin C, but if their color is yellow-brown, this means that the vitamin C has been exposed to air or light and has lost its potency.  

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that has been proven to nourish and rejuvenate the skin.  It plays a critical role in collagen formation- the protein that provides the skin with its firmness and elasticity.  It is also incremental in limiting pigmentation and preventing skin inflammation. 

Vitamin E is an effective moisturizer that prevents the skin from drying out.  It promotes wound healing and limits the appearance of scars.  When vitamin E is delivered at the same time as vitamin C, it enhances the performance of the vitamin C. 

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and helps to lock in moisture. It keeps the skin moist and lubricated and prevents it from drying out.

Oxygenation: Many spa treatments offer facial oxygenation treatments in which the skin is externally infused with oxygen. The oxygen does wonders for the skin– it increases the production of collagen, accelerates cell turnover, and helps in skin detoxification.  One of the most amazing benefits of the NowMi treatment is that it 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 skin is bombarded with high levels of carbon dioxide, the body sends in oxygen-rich cells to counter the attack.  Therefore, during the NowMi treatment, when the effervescent tablet is mixed with the gel, a chemical reaction occurs which forms millions of carbon dioxide-rich bubbles.  The body then oxygenates the treatment area.  One of the key benefits of the oxygenation is that it helps the skin cells to best absorb the vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid.

Protection: Vitamin C and E are potent antioxidants that protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable atoms that cause cell damage and death.  They cause the skin to age prematurely and have excessive pigmentation. Free radicals form as a result of overexposure to the sun, pollution, cigarette smoke and more.

Vitamin C for anti-aging treatments

Vitamin C for anti-aging treatments | NowMi
An orange rich in vitamin C

When it comes to anti-aging treatments, vitamin C takes center stage. Thousands of researches from all over the world have confirmed that the vitamin plays an integral role in skin health and can dramatically slow down the signs of aging. Vitamin C for anti-aging treatments are very popular but not all treatments yield effective results.  The reason is that the biologically active form of vitamin C is ascorbic acid, and ascorbic acid is a very unstable molecule.  As soon as ascorbic acid is exposed to light or oxygen it rapidly degrades and its color turns from white to a yellowish-brown.  Once it has degraded it loses its potency and its ability to heal the skin. This means that when you see a vitamin C facial rejuvenation serum or cream and its color is yellow or brown, the product has been exposed to air and light and is no longer effective.

The Role Vitamin C plays in anti-aging treatments

Collagen production:  Collagen is a fibrous protein that provides the skin with its strength and elasticity. Collagen also protects the skin by clearing environmental toxins and harmful microorganisms.  Up until the age of 20, our body produces ample quantities of collagen.  However, after the age of 20, the production starts to decrease at a rate of 1% per year.  By the time we reach 35, our skin has 15% less collagen, and as we age, the decline increases significantly.  As a result of the collagen loss the skin becomes thinner and beings to sag.  Wrinkles and fine lines appear and the skin loses its glow.

Collagen decease | NowMi
Collagen decline with age

Research has shown that without vitamin C, the body can’t form collagen.  Collagen plays a major role in collagen synthesis.  As Dr. David Wang, ND explains “It’s responsible for holding cells together during the creation of collagen”. 

Powerful anti-oxidant:  Vitamin C has been proven to neutralize reactive free-radicals. Free radicals damage the skin’s DNA and cause it to age prematurely.  One of the major causes of free radicals is overexposure to ultraviolet rays.  Without vitamin C the skin is highly vulnerable to photodamage.

Prevents skin inflammation: Vitamin C is an anti-inflammatory agent and plays an important role in countering inflammatory skin conditions such as Rosacea.  It also promotes wound healing and prevents post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Inhibits pigmentation: Melanin is a pigment that gives our skin its color. Darker-skinned people have more melanin and lighter-skinned individuals have less.  As we age, sunspots and age spots appear on our skin.  These darker patches are formed by the overproduction of melanin.  Vitamin C helps regulate the production of melanin and decreases its formation.  It therefore helps the skin to maintain an even tone and repair pigmentation damage.

The NowMi Vitamin C Anti-Aging Treatment

The NowMi treatment was designed to replenish your skin’s supply of vitamin C.  This enables the skin to create new collagen which rejuvenates and revitalizes it.  Vitamin C also enables the skin to repair itself by clearing away unwanted pigmentation, limiting inflammation, etc. Finally, vitamin C helps the skin protect itself from free-radicals and their devastating effects.

The NowMi Vitamin C Effervescent Tablet

NowMi-PRO facial skin oxygenation
The NowMi Pro effervescent tablet

The vitamin C used in the NowMi treatment is of the highest purity and highest concentration (50%)  in order to deliver the best possible anti-aging results.  The vitamin C comes in the form of an effervescent tablet which is sealed until use. The seal ensures that the ascorbic acid isn’t exposed to any light or oxygen prior to use.

During the NowMi treatment, the effervescent tablet is mixed with the NowMi gel and is massaged into the skin. The tablet has a slightly rough texture, and during the messaging action, the skin is exfoliated.  The exfoliation rids the skin of dead cells, oils and dirt and enables the vitamin C to effectively penetrate the skin cells.  In addition to vitamin C, the skin is infused with vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid found in the NowMi gel. 

In order to ensure that the vitamins are optimally absorbed, the NowMi treatment stimulates the body to oxygenate itself from within.  Using a scientific principle called the Bohr effect, the treatment creates a carbon-dioxide rich environment on the skin’s surface. The body then counters this by sending oxygenated blood cells to the treatment area.  The oxygen increases the metabolism of the skin’s cells,  helps them clear away waste, and ingest the vitamin C, E and Hyaluronic acid.

With ample quantities of vitamin C and E, the skin is able to protect itself from extrinsic factors such as UV rays, pollution and smoke.

Conclusion:

Vitamin C for anti-aging treatments has been scientifically proven in many studies.  However, not all vitamin Cs are the same and you need to ensure the vitamin C you chose is potent.  Vitamin C is crucial in order to maintain healthy skin – it builds collagen, prevents pigmentation and inflammation and protects the skin from free radicals.  The NowMi device is a home-use solution that enables you to restore your skin’s supply of vitamin C and dramatically slow down the signs of aging.  The treatment takes only 5 minutes and the results are outstanding.

Springtime Anti-Aging Oxygen Facial Treatments Rejuvenate Your Skin

Springtime Anti-Aging Oxygen Facial Treatments | NowMi

Winter takes its toll on your skin. The wind and cold outside, as well as the dryness from overly heated indoor environments that you live and work in can damage your skin. Also the steaming hot showers that you take may strip your skin of essential oils that protect your skin. All of these factors can cause your skin to dry out and lose some of its beautiful softness and glow.

Now that spring is coming, it’s time to give yourself springtime anti-aging oxygen facial treatments. These treatments help to repair the damage and skin aging that winter can cause. They help your skin to blossom and look younger.

Advantages of Springtime Anti-Aging Oxygen Facial Treatments

Traditional anti-aging oxygen facial treatments are performed in a spa and infuse the skin with oxygen using a high-pressure gun. Often, they infuse the skin with vitamin and mineral rich serums that rejuvenate and hydrate the skin.

The key advantages of oxygen facial treatments are:

Skin oxygenation: A primary reason for early skin aging is lack of oxygen in your skin. Capillaries often become clogged so your skin cells don’t receive enough oxygen, leading your skin to become paler and more fragile. By infusing oxygen into your skin, you can reduce the signs of aging.

Increased collagen production:  After age twenty, our bodies very slowly reduce the production of the elements that our skin needs such as collagen (which enables skin to remain firm). Increasing collagen in the skin enables it to maintain its firmness which lessens sagging and wrinkles. The springtime anti-aging oxygen facial treatment increases collagen in your skin, giving your skin the firmness that it needs.

Skin hydration: The aging process also reduces the amount of glycosaminoglycans or GAGs (which ensures that the skin remains hydrated). The oxygen facial treatment infuses hyaluronic acid, which is a type of GAGs, into the epidermis. This infusion gives your skin the ability to remain moisturized from within, which keeps the skin well lubricated, supple and soft.

The NowMi Springtime Anti-Aging Oxygen Facial Treatment

The NowMi Pro treatment kit

The NowMi treatment is a revolutionary skincare treatment that enables you to enjoy all of the benefits of a professional oxygen treatment within the comfort of your home. 

Designed for today’s busy lifestyle, the treatment takes only 5 minutes and costs a fraction of the price of its spa equivalent.

The NowMi springtime anti-aging oxygen facial treatments clean, nourish, oxygenate and protect your facial skin.  The NowMi treatment exfoliates the outermost layer of the skin and deeply cleanses each pore.  Simultaneously, your skin is infused with vitamins and minerals to nourish it. It is also oxygenated so that it can function better and absorb more oxygen and water from the environment. Finally, it is protected against environmental dangers.

The Nowmi treatment saves you time because, instead of heading out to a spa for an hour, you can do the treatment anywhere, anytime. Your skin receives the same four actions that it would get in a spa treatment: exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.

  1. Exfoliation: NowMi oxygen facial treatment exfoliates the residues from your skin. Dead skin cells, oils, remainders from makeup, smoke and pollution accumulate on the outer layer of your skin. This build-up of residue dries out on your skin, to the point where your skin is not able to absorb enough oxygen or water from the environment. As a result, the skin may feel hard, chapped, flaky and dry.

    The NowMi exfoliation removes the thin outer level of the skin. It cleanses the skin, removing dead cells, makeup and dirt. This exfoliation process is performed using the NowMi effervescent tablet which is combined with the Nowmi gel and is gently massaged into the skin. Your skin is then able to best absorb the infused vitamins and minerals.
  2. Nourishment: Your skin is nourished with vitamins C and E and Hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C is important in the formation of collagen which builds interconnecting tissue that keeps your skin firm and youthful. Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory agents which protects your cells against environmental stressors. Hyaluronic acid moisturizes your skin and prevents it from dehydrating.
  3. Oxygenation: Spa treatments infuse oxygen into the skin but NowMi treatments oxygenate the skin internally. This works based on the Bohr effect. The principle states that when the body is confronted with high levels of carbon dioxide, it reacts by sending oxygen-rich blood cells to the area. Therefore, the NowMi oxygenation treatment creates a carbon dioxide rich layer on the skin so that the body responds by sending heavily oxygenated cells to the facial skin, oxygenating it from within. The oxygen remains in the skin for a much longer time and facilitates the optimal absorption of the vitamins and minerals.
  4. Protection: Vitamins C and E are great for subduing free radicals that attack your skin, both internally and externally. These vitamins protect against the damage caused by too much sun, smoke and air pollution, also helping to prevent dark spots and wrinkles.

In summary, NowMi springtime anti-aging oxygen facial treatments correct the damage caused during the harsh winter. They clean your skin, nourish it with vitamins and minerals, oxygenate it, and give it protection against free radicals. Best of all, Nowmi treatments rejuvenate the skin and slow down the signs of aging, leaving your skin feeling soft, flexible, and beautiful.

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.

NowMi Oxygen Facial

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
