I found this video and article by Dr. Mercola and wanted to share this. As a licensed skin care professional I also feel strongly about healing acne in a nontoxic way. I have over 10 years of experience and have successfully guided many clients through a healthy skin care regime that has cleared their acne and given them their confidence back.
If you have acne or if your child or loved one has acne please take the time to look at this information.
Also, Spa 10 has two types of facials that help calm and clear problematic skin. Please visit our website and take a look at the Deep Pore Facial and Teen Clean Facial.
If your skin is need of a pick-me-up, an oxygen facial is is an amazing spa treatment that will plump, hydrate and give you that youthful glow!
Like all living things, the skin requires oxygen to survive, reproduce and renew. When we are younger, this process is very efficient, but as we age, certain functions of the skin just don’t operate as efficiently as the used to and skin does not receive the nourishment it needs.
The theory behind oxygenated spa treatments is that we all need oxygen for survival. Oxygen is what revives and replenishes the cells in our body. However, due to the pollutants in our environment today, our oxygen content has been greatly reduced. It is also true that as we age, oxygen does not reach our skin cells as efficiently, which is what leads to the aging process. The result can be thinner skin and the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. An oxygen facial will replenish the amount of oxygen that the skin receives, leaving it hydrated, plumper and youthful looking.
Oxygen Facials have a number of benefits including :
Facial massages reduce anxiety and elevate positive moods as demonstrated by a 2008 study by researchers at the User Science Institute of Kyushu University. Oxygen mask facials are typically combined with additional treatments that promote relaxation and reduce stress.
The bacteria and germs that contribute to the proliferation of acne cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment.
SIGNS OF AGING
Oxygen mask facials provide skin cells with a boost of oxygen that revitalizes cell health and promotes the cell’s natural regenerative capabilities.
Traditional facials to treat skin problems often involve a combination of scented creams and harsh abrasive chemicals. People with sensitive skin experience negative reactions such as redness, swelling and rashes that combat the benefits of the facial.
