Breathe in through your skin. With everyday hazards such as pollution and smoking diminishing the oxygen levels in our facial tissues, skin can look grey, tired and lines are more visible, which is why skin experts have come up with the A-List approved Oxygen Facial which recharges all the oxygen levels in your skin, leaving you looking like you've had two weeks in The Swiss Alps...
This Facial is said to instantly put a little bit of oomph back into your skin by blasting high-pressure oxygen onto your facial tissues which, in turn, instantly feeds a special serum packed with vitamins, minerals and collagen directly into the dermal layer of your skin. By boosting your skin's o2 levels your circulation and skin regeneration is said to improve which in turn leaves skin glowing.
Your therapist will begin the treatment with ten minutes of extreme exfoliation before using a nozzle which puffs chilly oxygen into the skin (which tickles), before finishing with a pampering mask. The entire treatment can take from 45 minutes to an hour and a half. The results are often instant with visibly clearer, plumper and smoother skin which makes it the perfect skin treat for a special occasion. Many A-listers are known to super charge their skin before strutting the red carpet.
Anyone can benefit from the purifying effect of an oxygen facial, however it is especially useful for those who suffer from rosacea, acne or facial scarring because within time boosted oxygen is said to clear minor skin complaints. With the extreme exfoliation (similiar to dermabrasion) at the beginning of the treatment this isn't for those after a relaxing spa trip, and skin sensitivity can arise during treatment so always let your therapist know if you have a skin allergy and don't be afraid to pipe up if you experience any discomfort during the facial.
Oxygen facials are said to be the secret behind Madonna's young complexion, in fact she loves them so much she recently purchased three machines so she can do the treatment herself. Now we know how she Vogues with such style.
