We’ve told you about how oxygen is a favorite complexion-boosting agent of celebrity skin. But why, exactly, do stars seek out extra oxygen? Isn’t the air around us enough?
Oxygen, first and foremost, is extremely healing. Additionally, when pure oxygen is sprayed onto the skin, bacteria cannot thrive; therefore, it offers hope for banishing breakouts. It’s also a great way to enhance topical treatments, as forcing oxygen into the skin after you’ve applied other skincare products assists in getting the ingredients to penetrate more deeply. This is especially helpful if you’re trying to hydrate your skin or give it an extra dose of nutrients.
So what about anti-aging effects? Using oxygen on wrinkles and fine lines, such as crow’s-feet around the eyes, does help fill in and plump up those spots-temporarily. Don’t expect long-term results. But if you want to look younger and more refreshed for a night out, an oxygen treatment will definitely give you several hours of exactly that.
