Oxygen- plants make it, we breathe it in, and the beautiful cycle of nature goes on and on… But, beyond keeping us alive- we are constantly finding out that oxygen has many properties which enhance both the body and the mind. Oxygen therapy has been on the rise over the last few years. In fact, proponents of oxygen “therapy” believe firmly that it boosts energy levels, increases your endurance during exercise, helps you bounce back more quickly from physical exertion. For them, oxygen provides relief from stress, helps clear pollution, increases concentration, and can even be a relaxant
Oxygen Facials: What is it and what it can do for you.
So, if oxygen has these amazing capabilities to help ease the inside of your body…We had to ask- what can it do for the outside of your body? Good news- A LOT! An oxygen facial uses the healing and restorative properties of the oxygen element on your complexion! We have found that incorporating an oxygen facial into your skincare routine can help eliminate acne causing bacteria, diminish enlarged pores, strengthen the skin’s elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
To begin, your specialist will clean your face to remove dirt and excess oil. Next, you’ll receive toner to balance the ph levels of your skin and undergo an exfoliation to remove any remaining impurities. At this point, a chocolate enzyme mask will be placed on your face (it smells delicious- try not to eat it!). This mask contains anti inflammatory properties and helps nourish and protect skin. Once this is complete, your specialist will mix an anti redness powder and gel into a foam. This foam will be applied to your face and subsequently sprayed with oxygen. This process will be repeated 3 times, after which the foam will be cleaned from your face. Your face will be sprayed with oxygen a final time before a custom serum and moisturizer is applied to address your specific skin care needs. The procedure typically takes between 45 minutes to 1 hour and should yield results almost immediately.
