How many of you actually paid attention in your high school science class? Did the periodic table resemble a warped game of hopscotch? Even if you weren’t a Bio-Chem teacher’s pet, one thing we all remember is that oxygen = good, and we need it to breathe and live. Apply that hypothesis to a facial, and it all makes sense. Beautiful skin not only requires a healthy level of hydration, but the skin benefits from being able to breathe better. Don’t be alarmed, but every now and then it’s healthy to take a break from your foundation, concealer and blush overload. Melissa Benton, Lead Skin Care Therapist at Facelogic Spa – Encinitas, is a huge supporter of oxygen treatments. Whenever doing this or any facial, she keeps it personalized: “First we start with a cleanse and a skin analysis, then we decide if you need extractions and which peel would be best for the client.” On the candidates and benefits of an oxygen facial, Melissa says, “The radiant oxygenating facial detoxifies, brightens, clarifies and evens skin tone by bringing oxygen into the skin. Anyone who has hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and dull skin can benefit from the treatment. “ Spa Week on the West Coast is hopscotching away with oxygen-infused facial treatments (one of this Fall’s hottest spa trends), each for just $50 September 13-19. Sign up for Spa Week and call these spas to book now before they run out of air! Then you can breathe.
