Oxygen: Not just for your lungs!



One of the latest skincare trends to hit the market is the idea of oxygen treatments
for the skin.

Why is this such a hot trend right now?

Oxygen, it seems, is not only vital to your lungs and body, but to your skin as well.

Skincare expert Joanna Vargas, who has been treating celebrity skin for years, says that “oxygen has proven benefits for the skin.” She continues to say we use of it as a treatment any time your body is in distress, like if you have a brain injury or if your skin is severely burned. Oxygen helps to stimulate your body’s natural healing function by being anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and stimulates collagen production.

Using this knowledge, researchers have developed skincare products and services that incorporate oxygen to help treat the skin. They have found it in treatments that produce dewy, glowy, and calmer skin.

Some of you may be wondering, “doesn’t my skin get enough oxygen from the air around me?” While in theory, the answer is yes, it’s not the same air our grandparents had when they were young. These days there is so much pollution it compromises the air quality quite dramatically. Our skin needs clean and fresh air in order to thrive.

Add to this our poor diets, lack of sleep and stress, our skin is all out of sorts. By performing oxygen treatments on the skin, we can deliver the benefits of it right to our complexions.

There are quite a few products and services available for those seeking treatments. Try one for yourself and experience the power of oxygen for yourself!

Energizing Day Cream: Formulated with rice peptides and lupine extracts, this daily moisturizer improves: microcirculation and boosts energy production & skin oxygenation. Siberian Ginseng protects and optimizes cellular energy for improved skin health and quality, and prevents and diminishes signs of aging.

What is Sensitive Skin?

Do you have Sensitive Skin?

A lot of people self-diagnose as having sensitive skin without knowing what it truly means. So who really has sensitive skin? While there is no official definition, a patient should not diagnose themselves as such unless they have ever suffered from eczema, rosacea, or another clinical skin condition by a dermatologist. For those who are now questioning their self-diagnosis, consider the times you break out- testing a new product, changing diet, and lacking sleep are all common causes of break outs for any type of skin. For those who have suffered from a skin condition at any stage of life, read on to hear a sensitive skin patient’s experience:

“While I was growing up, my mom always told me I had sensitive skin. She said when I was a baby I would break out in eczema patches which, according to her, were caused by having naturally dry skin and inheriting my dad’s allergies. Most of my life I haven’t had to think about my eczema, but that changed in my late teens and early twenties. After surviving puberty, my main focus was on clearing up my cystic acne. Once my skin cleared up, I started to want to experiment with makeup and started to watch all these instructional YouTube beauty videos. I inevitably went out and bought the drugstore products they were recommending, and had much different results than were advertised. After testing out one of the top selling drugstore mascaras, I broke out in dry, itchy eczema patches on the most tender part of my face- around my eyes. Over time I had similar experiences with some of the top selling eye creams, moisturizers, foundations, eyeliners, and spot treatments. It took me a while to realize it, but eventually I grew to understand that the health of my skin is far more valuable than saving money on makeup and skincare. After dropping small amounts of money on tons of different products that deteriorated my skin, I realized trying to find products based on packaging and bloggers was pointless. I found Nefertari.com and recognized the passion for skincare immediately after my consultation. Houria genuinely cared about the effectiveness of my skincare products, not about selling things to me. She sent me samples and then spent about an hour on the phone giving me explicit instructions on how to get the most out of each product. I got on a routine of using the Sothys Morning Cleanser to wash my face and, to be honest, fell in love with the smell before I even saw results. Later I added in the Sothys Comfort Lotion to tone after cleansing, and finished with the Soothing Melting Fluid to moisturize. The first thing I noticed, other than the wonderful smell of every product, was the change in the texture of my skin. It’s now more even to the touch and it’s easier to apply makeup. The biggest change I saw was the day after using the Sothys Desquacrem, which is like giving yourself a spa-quality exfoliating treatment. The better my skin gets, the more I love it, and the more I love it, the more I want to care for it. If you’re looking to take charge of your skincare routine, I cannot recommend Nefertari.com enough!”

What Is your Beauty?

There are many different definitions of beauty floating around on the internet, as well as in the offline world. It would seem that almost everyone has an answer to the question, ‘what is beauty?’. Which definition of beauty would you ascribe to?

Inward versus Outward Beauty

A large amount of controversy sometimes erupts when the conversation is one in which the term ‘beauty’ is being assigned a definition. One of the main areas which cause emotions to run high and logical skills to be compared is whether the definition of beauty should include the personality and character of an individual, or be confined to their outward appearance.
While it is easy to assume that the definition of beauty at Nefertari is limited to appearance alone, our position is that those who would leave inner beauty out of the equation are short-sighted. However, that makes the answer to the question ‘what is beauty’ a bit more complex.

Why Defining Beauty is Problematic?

The complexity of defining beauty stems from the fact that people tend to crave a static, one-size-fits-all definition. They want to say that a certain shape of the nose, distance between the eyes, body size, shoe size, hair length, and so on is beautiful, leaving all others out. A boxed up definition can also be made for inner beauty, saying that bookworms, stellar students, undereducated people, and so forth should be left out.
All of this has been the source of a lot of heartbreak and destructive behavior in millions of people. While many want to talk about the problems young girls have with self-image, the fact is any and all type of people, men and women, old and young, and of every race and ethnicity can suffer from such a small-minded definition.
Chanel posted a video on YouTube about the definition of beauty. It’s called ‘what is beauty’ and features a more accurate description: Chanel Or more on here At Nefertari, beauty is about being you. It’s about you feeling comfortable and confident with who you are. Our skin care product and services offered are specially crafted to help you feel and look your best. Inner and outer beauties are intricately linked.
