Victoria’s Secret: the Oxygen Facial
Welcome to my spa review series! This week I am focusing on the much-loved oxygen facial. The oxygen facial is a popular choice for many celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and is often seen as a red carpet staple. It is gentle, offers numerous benefits and can be tailored to suit different skin types which makes it perfect for those new to facials. Here I will outline the pros, cons, sub-types and special considerations of this treatment so that you can decide if it is right for you.
The main benefit of an oxygen facial is that it helps to increase blood circulation and promote cell turnover which gives the skin a healthy glow. It also hydrates and plumps the skin making it an excellent choice for those with dry or mature skin types. Oxygen facials can also help to improve acne by reducing inflammation and bacteria levels in the skin. Finally, they are relatively affordable when compared to other luxury facials such as diamond or pearl facials.
One potential downside of oxygen facials is that they may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin as they can cause irritation. It is always best to consult with your therapist beforehand to see if this treatment would be suitable for you. Another consideration is that some people find oxygen facials quite ‘ticky’ due to the pressurized air used during the treatment which some may not enjoy..
