Have you ever noticed that when you go away to the country, the beach or the mountains, one of the first things you do is to take a deep breath? Yes it can be a sigh of relief for having escaped the rigors of everyday city living or your crazy boss, but for many of us we take that deep breath simply because we can. Oxygen levels are higher in the country, around the ocean and most certainly in the mountains. Oxygen like water is an essential component to our health and the beauty of our skin. And if you live in the city you probably don’t get enough of it.
Rescue Spa has been advocating oxygen facials for years; I personally am a major fan and love the results an O2 facial can bring. Dull dehydrated skin is instantly rejuvenated with a perfect combination of micro-exfoliation and a light Alpha Beta Peel followed by intense hydration with a cool blast of hyperbaric oxygen. Your skin will be plumper, softer, and smoother. Plus we have a solid range of products to support your O2 regimen.
Last year I wrote about Kate Middleton who revealed that she favored oxygen facials for her good looks. I created a facial for the princess in case she decided to pop into Rescue. Kate hasn’t come in yet but since (in my mind) all of our clients are royalty the following products should work just as well for you. Btw, if you have an event coming up O2 is a wonderful facial to get.
VIP O2 Cleansing Milk
This “antipollution” cleanser eliminates impurities, calms the epidermis, brightens and unifies the complexion. Ultra light, it is ideal for urban dwellers, frequent travelers and stressed devitalized skin.
Masque VIP O2
A layer of this masque around the eyes to help eliminate dark circles from stressful city living and late nights. This oxygenating and moisturizing “antipollution” treatment restores radiance to stressed, asphyxiated skin. It is ideal to soothe sunburn too- leave it in your fridge and slather on.
Crème VIP O2
Apply this moisturizer morning and night. It has a lovely opalescent quality which is lovely on lighter skin tones. This is the perfect antipollution oxygenating cream for immediate healthy skin. Highly recommended for tired, devitalized skin that’s seen too much jet travel and not enough sleep.
Fluide VIP O2
I love this product, it’s a go-to and perfect for every skin tone. The unique formula contained in this serum traps oxygen at the surface of the skin, creating an environment that stimulates the epidermis’ natural functions. This is a flagship and runaway favorite at Rescue as it makes skin lustrous and taut.
If you normally book a classic facial, this will be a nice change for you. I think you’ll love the results.
