Whatever Kate Middleton does is just fine by us, and it just so happens oxygen-infused skin care is one of her beauty secrets — OXYMAX is a great option to try if you are looking for intense hydration without the heavy feeling of a cream.

We are all constantly looking for ways to make our skin look its best — oxygen is one of the latest thought-to-be frontiers on this battle. But does it work? And how can you best make it work for you?

Once upon a time, oxygen was used topically, to quicken the healing of burns. Pressurized oxygen is still used for this purpose in hospitals — it’s all built around the idea that an influx of healthy, stable oxygen increases skin cell metabolism.

“Skin suffering from too little oxygen can often become dull, wrinkled and virtually lifeless. Contrarily, studies suggest when skin is treated with oxygen, it becomes more vibrant, plump and youthful-looking. Keeping this in mind, OXYMAX Skincare  has developed an Oxygen Eye Cream that is O2 infused and works to revive damaged tissue, increase cellular turnover and soothe symptoms of tired or aging under eyes. The results are improved elasticity, greater collagen production and an overall more bright-eyed appearance.

Expert Advice

Dr. Gary Goldenberg of Goldenberg Dermatology shares the enthusiasm, to a degree. “Oxygen is an ingredient in more and more skin care products, such as moisturizers, serums, cosmetics and masks. These products, including the one I tried using, deliver dissolved oxygen to the skin. The hope is that oxygen will revitalize the epidermis, increase cellular turn over and help erase signs of aging.” Some also claim that oxygen can help with acne and rosacea by killing bacteria implicated in these conditions. Some spas also offer an oxygen mask at the end of your treatment. This delivers a high concentration of oxygen to your skin in order to increase the glow of your skin.
