Overview

Oxygen is essential for maintaining healthy, youthful looking skin. Being in an environment with clean air and eating a healthy diet can ensure your skin is infused with oxygen and keep away fine lines and wrinkles. However, sometimes a facial oxygen mask is needed to directly input oxygen into your skin. While the results are only temporary, they can be quite significant.

Reduced Irritation

Undergoing an oxygen mask facial can reduce the look of redness and irritation on the skin. According to "The New York Times," this mask will pump oxygen into your pores and give the skin a plumper, healthier look. This can make redness, scaliness or other forms of skin irritation less noticeable for several days after treatment.

Hydration

During the oxygen mask facial, moisturizers are applied to your skin, then a mask that delivers oxygen is place over your face. The oxygen helps the skin absorb the moisturizers very quickly, making your skin more hydrated and smooth. By adding to the suppleness of your skin, you're given a more youthful look.

Improved Elasticity

By infusing oxygen and moisture into your skin, you will also be improving the skin's elasticity. Elasticity is responsible for keeping away wrinkles and sagging skin. By making your skin look more plump, an oxygen mask facial will get rid of fine lines, wrinkles and droopiness.

Quick Improvement

An oxygen mask facial is not a permanent solution to your skin problems. However, it can make you look younger and more vibrant very quickly. In fact, according to Care Fair, undergoing a treatment with the pressurized oxygen mask will make your skin look healthier right away and will maintain that healthy glow for several days thereafter. This treatment is best performed right before a big event, including a wedding.
