So, if you’ve read our ‘A New Generation of Skincare’ blog you will know that supplemental oxygen has huge benefits to our skin and should be a key part of any skincare routine.
Supplemental oxygen is thought to have the following benefits to skin:
- Strengthens the elasticity of our skin
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Helps to combat bacteria that causes acne
- Evens skin tone
- Reduces pores
- Stimulates collagen production
- Aids cell turnover, helping skin to shed and replace dead cells
- Boosts circulation
- Reduces inflammation
- Leaves your complexion hydrated and revitalised
So, where does supplemental oxygen fit into your skincare routine? The answer…anywhere. Below we will share information on exfoliating and give you inspiration for a home-made face mask – both of these are great, but require time being allocated to doing them. ClearO2 in a handy can, simply slots into your everyday life for use whenever and wherever you like, leaving you to simply admire the benefits.
Most of us know that exfoliating is a big part of skincare. It is a great way to improve the tone and texture of your skin and is easy to do at home. However, you will need to set a little time aside and it’s important not to overdo it and to learn what suits your skin type best.
Exfoliating is the process for removing dead cells from the outer layer of your skin, using an exfoliant. Your skin is constantly repairing and replacing, leaving layers of old skin. Exfoliating gets rid of these, revealing brighter skin underneath. This also helps any products you use to be able to work better.
If you don’t already do this…here’s a basic how to:
- Start by washing your face with your usual cleanser (by cleansing first you remove any dirt, make up or sweat)
- Take a small amount of your exfoliating face scrub and apply to your face in circular motions, for between 30-60 seconds
- Rinse with warm water
- Pat your skin with a clean towel
- Finish with your moisturiser or cream
This should only be done roughly three times a week maximum for normal skin, as it can otherwise strip too much protection or cause micro-tears. If you have older skin, sensitive skin or a skin condition, this would be even less frequent.
Another traditional skincare favourite is a face mask. Even just the relaxation of patiently waiting for it to work can help take the stress of the day away. A good face mask can even skin tone, minimise pores and help with blemishes.
