You're probably not old enough to remember the oxygen bar craze. They were place you'd go and sit and inhale air, often scented, which was said to rejuvenate you. A lot of people thought it was crazy, but I always thought - how could oxygen be a bad thing for your skin?
Dr. Stacey Reading and his staff also believe in the power of oxygen therapy, so I was thrilled to get the chance to try Oxygen Pür Skin Serum, part of their skincare line that "infuses ultra-high concentrations of dissolved oxygen into water, in excess of ten times that found in tap water, which then penetrates the deeper layer of the dermis, immediately elevating oxygen skin tissue levels."
The serum is thin, but has fantastic coverage. It hydrates upon application and doesn't have a stitch of oiliness. It's a fascinating sensation - like a cool breeze and silk sheets on your skin - yet it penetrates immediately, leaving your skin looking smooth and supple. The serum lasts forever because you only have to put on a thin layer and you can use it in conjunction with your other skincare products as well (put Oxygen Pür on first and let it absorb before adding others).
I like that my skin feels hydrated and rejuvenated throughout the day (no more of that midday dryness) and that it's 100% chemical, fragrance, paraben, phathlate and sulfate free. While my skin's cells and collagen are being repaired and renewed, there go all of my little lines, age spots and that ruddiness that my skin gets when I'm tired and rundown and at this time of year, where it's like living in a walk-in fridge.
Thanks to Oxygen Pür Skin Serum, my suddenly plump and supple skin feels quenched and has that joyous youthfulness that usually only occurs after a lengthy vacation or sleep.
p.s. Also be sure to try Pomegranate Nourishing Skin Serum, made with pomegranate seed oil, rich in omega-5.
