What if I told you that your body is capable of making you look younger, with no intervention from skincare professionals and no expensive med spa procedures? I mean, who has the time or money for all of that? Some of us, sure, but not all of us – nor do all of us want to take that route.
And what if I told you that you can tap into a powerhouse of rejuvenation and healing power in your own body that can energize your cells to act like younger versions of themselves, and give you a radiant glow? You’ve got all the tools to tap into this skin-transforming power right now. What could it be?
It’s oxygen. But you knew I was going to say that, didn’t you?
There are plenty of pricey skincare treatments that try to topically introduce oxygen into the skin because of its rejuvenating and wound healing properties (it’s especially helpful for acne because essentially, an inflamed blemish is a bit like a wound). These treatments can be effective at creating a dewy glow, calming inflammation, and making you feel good (you know- pampering), but the effects of oxygen treatments are short-lived. The results might be good for a special event, but it’s certainly not going to pay off in the long run.
There is a better way to infuse your entire body (not just your skin) with life-giving oxygen, and that’s by using your breath to flood your body with the very airy elixir of life. People have reported benefits to the skin that include more radiant, glowing skin as well as clearer skin, all from practicing better breathing!
But how is this possible? Well, it’s likely that reducing stress plays a major role in how your skin looks and feels. Stress causes physiological changes in the body that shift hormones and increase inflammation which can create skin issues, and it can also raise your blood pressure which restricts proper circulation. This decreases nutrition and oxygen’s presence in the skin, both of which our skin needs to thrive. As a matter of fact, stress can affect our skin so much, that there’s a burgeoning branch of psychology/dermatology that addresses this issue called psychodermatology.
Breathing also helps to cleanse the body’s cells because cells need oxygen to energize the cells as well as remove waste. So when you energize your cells and help them to release waste, you are also doing the same thing for your entire body. Getting rid of waste makes room for more nutrition in the cells, and in the body as well.
So how do you breathe to make your skin better? Well, there are many ways, but we choose to use the Oxycise! method because it not only gives us a gorgeous glow, it also shapes us up and creates better all-around health and vitality. And that’s what we would call a darn good “breathing bargain”.
