When it comes to beauty gimmicks, oxygenating skincare ranks rather high on our list. How can a product that bubbles up on the surface of the skin be anything more than a novelty? Well, these ones we’re about the introduce have proved us wrong.
Clogged pores and environmental debris often results in a lack of oxygen in your skin, causing breakouts, dullness, and even premature ageing. So by delivering oxygen directly into the skin, it actually increases cell metabolism, allowing the skin to shed dead cells faster to replace them with new, healthier ones. If you’re still unconvinced, pick one of these oxygenating beauty products up and give it a chance.
Skin Inc Oxy-Recharge Bubble Mask
Formulated with the brand’s smart peel technology and a soothing blend of natural antioxidants, this bubbling oxygen mask cleanses and energises the skin with a tingling sensation to lift away dead skin cells, revealing a clearer, plumper complexion in mere minutes.
$76, available now at Skin Inc stores and Sephora.
Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment
This formula contains line-smoothing perfluorocarbons (PFCs), oxygen, hyaluronic acid, and botanically-derived antioxidants to lock in the moisture, softening your skin dramatically and boosting that glow to reveal a more youthful complexion. Just shake the bottle well and spritz stripes onto your face before massaging it in.
$153, available from Sephora.
Philosophy’s The Microdelivery Detoxifying Oxygen Peel
Combining 2 products in 1, Philosophy’s duo delivers the purifying benefits of a detoxifying mask as well as the brightening effects of an oxygen facial.
