OXYGEN Is The Secret To Younger Acting Skin

OXYGEN Treatment CreamJanuary 1, 2015 Provo, UT

The new GlyMed Plus OXYGEN Treatment Cream is the next step in total skin health. This oxygen-rich soufflé resuscitates lifeless skin, supercharges cellular turnover, targets fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves the skin incredibly soft and luminous for a fresh, ageless look. OXYGEN Treatment Cream is recommended for all skin types and conditions to use daily, morning and night.

This formulation contains the highest quality natural botanicals as well as extract from the Nasturtium plant which is rich in nutrients and hemoglobin proteins. These specialized proteins assist in reducing hypoxic stress, increasing cellular metabolism, detoxifying waste, and restoring oxygen for younger acting skin. This product penetrates into the epidermis to restore, replenish, and revitalize skin at the cellular level.

The benefit of utilizing the GlyMed Plus OXYGEN Deep Pore Cleanser in conjunction with the OXYGEN Treatment Cream is the increase in oxygen-rich circulation which results in greater overall health and appearance of the skin. OXYGEN Treatment Cream aids in the reduction of inflammation, soothes blotchy complexion, and evens skin tone. In addition, using GlyMed Plus oxygen-infused products boosts the skin’s ability to function by removing cellular waste and increasing vital nutrients. This process allows the regeneration of younger-acting cells, thereby stimulating new, healthy skin!

How oxygen relates to aged skin

Oxygen is essential for the function and integrity of the Stratum Corneum and the BRF (Barrier Repair Function). Oxygen aids in the healing of acne, photo-damage, and pigmentation while increasing skin metabolism and cell detoxification. The chemistry of oxygen is a weapon against aging.

Oxygen deprivation creates stress on skin proteins and cellular DNA. Low oxygen levels, or hypoxic stress, causes a nutrient deficiency, temperature shock, and DNA damage. Oxygen normalizes the induction of HIF-1z, the hypoxic stress response factor, and the necessary tool to restore skin’s fibroblasts to a younger-acting state. Oxygen stimulates the protein synthesis responsible for the delivery of oxygen to the respiratory chain of cells. Oxygen deprivation inhibits basal keratinocyte proliferation, or slows down cellular turnover. Hypoxic stress leads to loss of tissue integrity which impacts the ability of wounded tissue to heal. Oxygen deficiency impairs overall cellular function. Oxygen Treatment Cream creates energy, detoxifies cells, and restores energy for younger acting skin.

Botanical extracts deliver oxygen 

The use of natural botanical extracts such as the nasturtium flower, enables the OXYGEN Treatment Cream to harness the benefits of this ingredient to deliver younger acting skin. Nasturtium has been used for hundreds of years as a natural antibiotic to treat the acne cycle. Nasturtium also aids in wound healing and the reduction of pigmentation. It is a powerful antioxidant which assists in neutralizing free radicals and protects against oxidation and cell damage from UV exposure. Oxygen increases macrophage activity, which is the skin’s ability to fight off foreign body infections. It’s also anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antifungal which aids in the treatment of acne, pigmentation, Rosacea, and other aging skin conditions. Nasturtium also contains natural proteins and amino acids that build up the skin, promoting rejuvenation and leaving the skin softer, smoother, and suppler.

What does that mean for us skin care professionals?

Oxygen is necessary component for the aesthetic professional to provide their clients with healthy skin, and GlyMed Plus has two OXYGEN INFUSED products for younger acting skin cells.
