Wonder Facial that Cleanses and Plumps Skin
Since the royal nuptials last week, everyone can’t get enough of Kate Middleton’s wedding look from her satin-and-lace gown to the natural, elegant makeup she applied herself on the big day (for a great play-by-play of Kate Middleton’s wedding day makeup, check out BEAUTYEDITOR.ca).
Rumour has it that the newly anointed Duchess of Cambridge also had an oxygen therapy treatment before her wedding day to ensure picture perfect results for the big event.
According to a press release from Crystal Clear Skincare, the skin-brightening facial “gives instant skin rejuvenation with no down time. Results are immediately visible and are cumulative.”
The oxygen facial, which has also been a hit with celebrities like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, uses a jet system of pure oxygen to deliver anti-aging serums into the deeper layer of the epidermis.
The intensity of the oxygen pressure and the active ingredients of the serums help to improve firmness of the skin, leaving it plumped and glowing. Anti-bacterial properties of oxygen also help to eliminate toxins for a clearer, brighter complexion.
The facial, which can be tailored to match your skin type and any problem areas, involves sonic exfoliation, application of a brightening serum, and infusion into the dermis with a wand that blows air and nutrients into the skin.
The price tag for an oxygen facial starts at about $110 for an hour session (Absolute Spa in Vancouver offers three different treatments).
However, if you’re keen on seeing how oxygen can impact your complexion at a lower price tag, you can explore the benefits of oxygen with the At-Home Oxygen Blast Set: a three-piece kit that provides your skin with a blast of oxygen. The set, which is available at Sephora, contains a facial mask, oxygen and Vitamin C cream, and eye mask pads.
