Your skin needs more than just oxygen to breathe
Oxygen is needed more than just in your lungs!
The beauty world just can’t get enough of oxygen, thanks to its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing functions, leaving skin looking revitalized, radiant and healthy. So with oxygen all around us, why doesn’t our skin look rejuvenated all the time? Well, sometimes life can just get in the way - but there is a way to inject more O₂ into your skincare regime...
Oxygen is needed by our skin - not just our lungs
We don’t mean that our skin actually respires, but its cells do need a vast amount of oxygen to function properly. When skin is properly oxygenated it looks vibrant, healthy and retains a youthful glow.
However, sometimes daily life can get in the way. Pollution, UV rays and other free radicals can block our skin cells from receiving enough oxygen, which can affect the extent to which our skin can heal and regenerate.
The air around us actually only contains 21% oxygen
So, this is where we can answer the original question - why does our skin need more oxygen than the air around us provides? Well, our surroundings only contain a low proportion of oxygen, and a high amount of pollution... Indeed, the World Health Organisation has found that 92% of us live in places where outdoor quality fails to meet adequate standards. Evidently, this can have an adverse effect on our skin.
Give your skin a helping hand
However, you can now take your skin’s oxygen levels into your own hands… Enter: Skin Oxygen.
The new range from Biotherm fights to protect our skin from external aggressors whilst reinforcing our skin’s natural defences, allowing it the space to breathe. Skin Oxygen is also enriched with a 2-billion year old algae, Chlorella, which harnesses oxygen as well as possessing powerful detoxifying effects that can purify the air surrounding it. On the skin, skin is able to breathe deeper and purer than it ever could before.
Additionally, the range is enriched with Biotherm’s most regenerative microorganism, Life Plankton, which, when combined with Chlorella, deeply nourish and regenerate skin, leaving it smooth and glowing.
Defend skin against urban life at every turn
Luckily, all of these products can be used together in a one-stop-beauty-routine - so no need to look further for the ultimate protection against city living!
