Breath of fresh air for your skin
Can there be such a thing as a breath of fresh air for your skin?
Yes, if a new regime that's gaining popularity abroad is to be believed. The Oxygen facial involves using medical grade oxygen as a delivery mechanism for active ingredients into the skin.
In the world of unusual skin regimens, it's gaining acceptance with beauty mavens. When actress Megan Fox is not working, she pampers her skin with this once a week. "If I'm not working, I have an oxygen facial once a week. It's important to go out and have a steam and get the toxins out," a website quoted the 25-year-old actress as saying.
'I'd love to try it'
Singer Madonna has also recommended it while Kate Middleton indulged in it ahead of her marriage to Prince William. She went for the Crystal Clear Oxygen Therapy to give her that glow. Back home, actress Isha Koppikar is game to try it too. "I have heard of oxygen facials. It is the new beauty mantra in the West and is creating quite a buzz. I would love to try it as I've heard it can renew skin cells and also fight bacteria that causes acne," she says.
The Oxygen facial is a step-by-step process that begins with cleansing so that the skin is prepared for the treatment. The first step is introducing a small "shot" of glucose, magnesium and potassium to the skin surface, which helps to activate the oxygen absorption process. Then a mask is placed on the face and through a diffuser, pure hydrated oxygen is pumped and you are now allowed to breathe the aroma-oxygen blend.
After the mask is removed, a cleanser is applied to the face and neck. A mix of oxygen-infused ingredients is then applied to the skin, along with an antioxidant-rich serum, to speed up cell regeneration and encourage healing. Then an emollient-rich cream is applied to the face to tighten the skin and infuse it with even more moisture to deliver another blast of aroma-oxygen onto the treatment area. The aim is to provide a warm glow to the skin.
Is it safe?
"Totally," says beauty expert Manju Rawat. "The Oxygen facial has no side effects as one uses pure oxygen. Anyone aged 15 and upwards can use this."
It is a big draw as it is said to temporarily diminish all the tiny imperfections that would otherwise be visible. The oxygen facial thus claims to restructure the skin, visibly plumping out the lines and wrinkles.
Consultant dermatologist Dr Madhuri Agarwal, who does the Oxygen facial via the Jet Peel method, says, "The facial is effective as it drains lymphatic toxins and does a mild exfoliation, which involves dead cell removal. Both are done without touching the skin so there is no redness or irritation. We introduce vitamins and nutrients depending on the skin type. It is a great therapy to indulge in during the party season."

This is an easy question. Beards. I'm not afraid to say that I believe in beards.
When things get crazy, or I lose sight of what's important, I think about a long, thick, wiry beard. It doesn't take long before I realize that everything is gonna be all right.
