The Oxygen Facial
Eva Longoria loves it, Brad Pitt is a fan and Madonna has three machines so she can do it herself. It's the latest craze to hit the Hollywood A-list. The Oxygen Facial.
These facials are the new black, mainly due to their instant effects - they promise to plump and hydrate skin, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. A big hit on the set of Sex and the City apparently (well, smoother plumped up skin is a great base for makeup). Brides love them as the perfect pep up before walking down the aisle. They have even been credited as the secret of Madonna's younger-looking skin.
Ok the basics behind this amazing facial treatment - our skin needs oxygen to survive, reproduce and regenerate. In younger skin, this process is very efficient, but as we age, the micro capillaries degenerate and skin does not receive the nourishment it needs. As a result, the metabolism of our skin cells slows collagen and elastin content drops and fine lines, discoloration and wrinkles begin to appear. Sun exposure, air pollution, extreme hot and cold variances, diet fluctuations, worry and day-to-day stresses and strains of life affect the condition of your skin. Adding oxygen to your facial treatment will soothe and refresh your skin naturally. Oxygen is essential to the health and maintenance of skin cells in the human body. With age, skin looses its ability to retain and utilize Oxygen for normal metabolic processes, such as repair and regeneration. When oxygen is lacking at the cellular level, our skin begins to age—sometimes prematurely. Facials with Oxygen help nourish and rejuvenate dull skin. Also as we age, oxygen does not reach our skin cells as efficiently, which is what leads to the aging process. The result can be thinner skin and the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. An oxygen facial will replenish the amount of oxygen that the skin receives, leaving it hydrated, plumper and younger looking. So basically an Oxygen facial treatment will purify, detoxify, stimulate circulation, improve circulation, heal the skin, prevent skin damage, revitalize the skin and soften lines and wrinkles.
