It’s a new year, and I am still continuing to highlight one product every month with a little special attention and information. This feature is also to inform you of the benefits of certain topical products of which you might not have been completely aware.
Maine Laser Skin Care’s Product of the Month for January 2018 is O2 Lift Mask, a product I happen to use on a regular basis. The O2 Lift Mask’s formula is especially appreciated in the winter when everyone feels their skin getting more and more dry over time. As someone with generally very dry skin, I use the O2 Lift Mask all year round, but at more frequent intervals during the winter.
Two particular ingredients within the O2 Lift Mask contribute most strongly to its fight against dry skin. First among these ingredients is Vitacell, which is a natural botanical and yeast-based complex.
Vitacell specifically helps to boost the oxygen uptake of your skin cells, resulting in a more firm, brighter, more youthful, and smoother appearance to the skin. It also boosts the production of new and younger skin cells while enhancing the exfoliation of older, drier, and scaly skin cells.
Glycerin is the second important ingredient. It acts as an emollient, which means that it helps to enhance the moisture levels of the skin by absorbing moisture from the air as well as retaining moisture that is already within the skin. Especially in the winter, when all the forces of nature are trying to rob your skin of natural moisture, your skin needs to be defended so as to not dry out excessively over time.
I use the O2 Lift Mask at least once a month in the spring, summer, and autumn. During the winter, however, I apply it much more frequently at a rate of once every 1-2 weeks.
The benefits are obvious in that my skin feels much better and moisturized immediately after use. The key is to apply the clear gel to your face after washing your face gently, and to keep it on for at least 20-30 minutes. After that time passes, wash it off with cool water, and again gently rub and pat your face dry.
After a treatment, your skin will feel less dry and more moisturized. When your skin’s hydration is improved, your skin will visibly lift and plump.
When your skin is properly hydrated, it has a smoother texture, and a more radiant tone. The skin’s elasticity also improved, which can enhance the benefits of other procedures including microneedling, peels, and laser procedures.
One container of O2 Lift Mask retails for $35, but it can last you a number of months, and is well worth adding to your skin care regimen on a regular basis. How frequently you use it depends on the hydration levels of your individual skin type. However, you will probably finds yourself using it more often in the winter months, which is why we are featuring it as our Product of the Month for January.
