Natural oxygen therapy will make your skin more radiant
Learn all about the benefits of the Bol d’Air Jacquier!
As kids, our professors taught us that in order for our cells to function correctly, they need oxygen. We learned early on that the key to ensuring that our cells get enough, is be in nature and breathe in fresh air as often as possible. As adults, we’ve come to understand why: stress and pollution expose our body and skin to free radicals, preventing our cells from getting adequate O2. Over time, health and skin problems, like inflammation can ensue. Luckily there are ways to help deliver more oxygen to your cells: doing calming activities like meditation which help you focus on your breathing, as well natural oxygen therapy.
Bol d’Air Jacquier: natural oxygen therapy that helps improve cellular oxygenation
No matter where you live, the air is composed of 21% oxygen. When we imagine how to give our cells more oxygen, we make the assumption that we need to put more into our bodies, by doing things like visiting an oxygen bar. However, our bodies don’t actually need a surplus of O2; what they need is a solution that will help take the oxygen we already breathe in naturally and deliver it directly to our cells.
Enter: The Bol d’Air Jacquier. It’s a small device invented 60 years ago in France by René Jacquier, that helps our cells better assimilate oxygen. All you need to do is sit in front of the machine and breathe in the air emitted by the device – that’s it! The technology behind it is pine resin, which is found in the mist. It contains terpene molecules, and they act like oxygen carriers that attach to hemoglobin, delivering more O2 to our cells.
Multiple studies have been conducted on the benefits of the Bol d’Air Jacquier, and it was discovered that regular treatment sessions could increase our free radical defenses. When our bodies are able to fight free radicals, we’re less susceptible to premature aging and our complexion is more radiant. And when you couple the Bol d’Air Jacquier treatments with topical skincare products that contain antioxidants, your skin is even better protected against free radicals!
Where to get Bol d’Air Jacquier treatments
The Bol d’Air Jacquier can be found all over France, as well as worldwide in wellness and thalassotherapy centers. If you really like the treatments, you can also purchase a machine for home use.
The #LIVEMORE team had the opportunity to test out the Bol d’Air Jacquier at Le Centre Elément in Paris, France, and what we liked the most about it is how fast the treatment is! One minute is enough to help your cells absorb more oxygen. You can use the Bol d’Air Jacquier on a regular basis, or as a cure for 21 days every few months. We could see ourselves doing it often, because when we left we felt like we had just stepped into a forest in the middle of urban Paris and we had more energy.
Keep in mind that the Bol d’Air Jacquier can be practiced alone, but for best results, we recommend combining it with other treatments like spending time in the sauna, investing in high-quality skincare products, and doing at-home spa sessions. This will ensure that your skin looks glowing, and you’ll look – and feel – that much more beautiful.
