Can You Breathe Life Into Your Skin With Oxygen?

hwoman splashing water on her faceHave you ever been to the pool and tried to swim across in one breath? It’s a well-known fact that we can’t live without oxygen for much time—and the same goes for our skin. Your skin is your body’s largest organ and, like your lungs, oxygen is needed to keep skin alive and healthy.

Daily Makeover recently highlighted this new trend in skincare: oxygen-based beauty products. Oxygenating skin care has a long history, and it is still used today in hospitals to accelerate the healing of burns. Skin is often depleted of oxygen due to environmental pollution, clogged pores, and dead skin cells, which results in dull coloring, breakouts, and even premature wrinkles. Oxygen increases the skin’s metabolism by encouraging the renewal and replacement of dead cells with healthier ones.

Is It Just Another Gimmick?

Every beauty supply store is full of items that tingle, bubble, and sometimes sting—and they all claim to revitalize your pores with oxygen. But where does fad end and great skincare product begin? While bottles boasting a special fizz may seem like a gimmick, oxygen can eventually lead to healthier, younger-looking skin. The only problem is it can take a while for you to see results when using typical over-the-counter products.

Go Pro for Real Results!

If you’re looking to breathe life back into your skin more quickly and effectively, put yourself in the hands of an experienced skincare professional. Treatments such as skin resurfacing are proven to provide safe results and can dramatically improve the health and appearance of your skin in as little as one or two treatments. A skin expert can also recommend medical-quality products that have been clinically shown to provide visible results safely.
