Signs your skin needs an oxygen boost (and how to achieve it)

Signs your skin needs an oxygen boost (and how to achieve it)

Oxygen is an essential element everyone’s body needs – your skin included.

Just like you need your morning caffeine fix, your skin needs oxygen to function at its best. From clearing out pores to keeping cells happy, it’s the ultimate skin care sidekick. So, what happens when the oxygen supply runs low?

Red, itchy, dull and uncomfortable…all words to describe your skin’s fate without proper oxygenation. Wondering how to tell if your skin is gasping for air? These four signs are your biggest tells:

Sensitivity and redness

Reduced oxygen levels in the skin may make it more sensitive and prone to irritation. This can result in increased redness, itching and discomfort.

Dullness and premature age signs

Oxygen is necessary for cellular metabolism and energy production. Low oxygen levels can lead to decreased cellular function, potentially contributing to skin dullness and premature aging.

Acne and clogged pores

Acne-causing bacteria thrive in low-oxygen environments. Insufficient oxygen supply to the skin can create conditions that favor the growth of these bacteria, potentially leading to acne breakouts and inflammation.

Impaired skin barrier function

The skin barrier is essential for maintaining proper hydration and protection against external irritants. Insufficient oxygen can compromise the skin barrier's integrity, making it more vulnerable to damage and dehydration.

Take a look in the mirror. If you notice your skin is showing the aforementioned signs, it may be time to give it an oxygen boost. Here’s how to do just that:

Get a facial

When you treat yourself to a professional facial, estheticians really dive in deep, reaching parts of your skin you can’t treat at home. With stronger, more potent ingredients, facials offer maximum effectiveness with minimal effort on your part. Talk about a win-win!

Facials also provide a healthier environment for the skin by keeping tissues healthy and encouraging blood flow.

“The skin is the largest organ in the body, but it’s the last to get nutrients, so we have to make sure to help it,” licensed esthetician Deborah Jones said. “By doing regular facials, you’re going to keep that skin exercised and you’re going to keep it healthy.”

Not sure where to start? Try the Oxygen Glow facial, a purifying treatment that renews dull, tired, sluggish, clogged or prematurely aging skin – with a triple oxygenating complex designed to amplify cellular respiration. This facial features three corrective activity tiers designed to deliver personalized results with increasing levels of exfoliation.

With ingredients like purified hydrogen peroxide and brightening vitamin C, plus a couple of killer massage techniques, it's like a burst of fresh air for your skin!

This facial also features oxygen boost barrier treatment pro, a true pro-use-only Power Treatment that purifies pores, adds vibrance, maintains elasticity and improves barrier integrity.

Use products with oxygen-boosting ingredients

What easier way to deliver oxygen to your skin than applying daily-use products directly to the area you want to boost? Not sure what products to look for? Let us help you out.

“You have to look for ingredients that lock in moisture and help loosen that oxygen in the skin while also protecting your barrier,” said Jones.

With that expert tip in mind, keep an eye out for these 5 ingredients that will aid in boosting your skin’s oxygen flow:

Stabilized Hydrogen Peroxide: Creates an unfavorable environment for bacteria within the pores, helping purify the skin and give it a chance to become healthier.

Saccharomyces Lysate Extract: Improves barrier function and reduces transepidermal water loss, significantly increasing moisturization with better results over time.

Mitostime: Reduces wrinkles, rejuvenates aged cells and increases skin respiration.

Silver Ear Mushroom: Forms a barrier-protective hydration film to keep skin nourished over longer periods. This ingredient is a stronger, natural alternative to hyaluronic acid.

Niacinamide: Improves the appearance of environmental damage, problem pores, uneven tone, lines and dullness.

Ingredients like these help boost skin’s health by providing a barrier against unwanted foes – like bacteria and breakouts. Backed by science and clinical results, the oxygen boost barrier treatment is like having that barrier bottled up and ready to go.

This treatment is all about giving your skin that extra boost it craves. The ultimate sidekick, it amplifies the effects of your skincare routine and ramps up cellular respiration for that extra glow.
