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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Smoking dries out the skin.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
