5 Ways Oxygen is Beneficial for Your Skin

All cells require oxygen for optimal functioning, including our skin cells. A lack of oxygen in the skin can cause blood vessels to shrink and disrupt its ability to function properly, which can lead to the skin looking dull.

Besides allowing the skin to breathe, oxygen applied directly to the skin has many beneficial actions:

  • Promotes Skin Healing //

    • Oxygen stimulates the body’s natural healing function by increasing circulation, thus helping the skin to create new cells at a faster rate.
  •  Anti-Inflammatory //

    • Oxygen soothes inflammation and irritation by creating a cooling and calming effect to the skin.
  •  Antibacterial //

    • Oxygen removes debris and destroys bacteria (responsible for blemishes, irritation…), leaving the skin perfectly balanced and protected.
  • Stimulates Collagen & Elastin Production //

    • Oxygen increases the strength of collagen and elastin fibers by helping to metabolize new cells. Oxygen is crucial for healthy cell development.
  • Adds Plumpness to the Skin //

    • Oxygen can temporarily enhance the skin by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and creating a plumping effect. The skin is left with a glow and looking healthier.
