Bioxage Summer Beauty Tips

Summer is here; weekends at the beach and outdoor events are just a few steps away. However, everyone knows that these parties can be loaded with very high calorie foods like chips, ice cream, pasta salads, beer and cocktails.

Here is a great way to keep those calories down, while keeping your energy up with our healthy tips:

  • Make Breakfast a Priority

You have always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day…so by eating a healthy breakfast combination of carbs, protein and healthy fats (yogurt, coconuts, almonds, walnuts) will kick your metabolism into high gear and extend your energy through out the day.

  • Incorporate Veggies and Fruits into Your Diet

It is easy to have a routine of veggies..with summer you have many fresh choices…blueberry, raspberries, cherries, peaches, figs, plums, watermelon, corn, kale, asparagus, beets, squash etc., giving your body that energizing nutritional kick!

  • Green Tea

Green Tea naturally speeds up your metabolism.  The loose tea brew it yourself is always the best…WHITE TEA the traditional TEA of the Emperors in China actually has a higher concentration of anti-oxidant qualities, for that boost!

  • Choose Seafood

Summer is a great time to get the freshest catch of fish..from your grocer or seafood purveyor.  Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon is the best, Tuna, Halibut good choices as well as Lobster and clams.

  • Drink 8-10 Glasses of Water per day

The summer heat can make us susceptible to dehydration.  Start the day off with at least 2 glasses of water, preferably with a shot of real lemon.  Keeping a bottle of water with you at all time as a reminder to keep going!

  • Eat Healthy at the Beach

Making the right choices is so important…staying clear of ice cream and high calorie fried and barbecued foods, your body will love your for it!  Pack your cooler with bottled water, ice, sandwiches on whole grain breads, hummus, nuts, yogurt and fruits!

  • Recover with a Post-Workout Protein Shake

After a workout or summer outing, re-energize with a shake of your favorite protein powder and fruits, to kick start the muscle building process, recover from training and boost energy levels.

  • Healthy Snacking at Work

When you eat more often five or six small meals or snacks you are far less likely to overeat, keep energy and blood sugar levels in check!

Oxygen Facial Facts You Didn’t Know About

The ever famous oxygen facial may have been popularized already by various celebrities that can’t get enough of its treatment benefits and results. Madonna, being the most famous fan of all, even has her, not to mention one on each of her houses, own oxygen machine. We have to admit that this treatment has been a craze among famous celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Victoria Beckham. The effects can be seen dramatically by how these celebrities’ skin tone and texture look like off and on camera.

What is it with Oxygen facial that makes famous celebrities crazy over it? Does it really work? Is it the answer to a younger looking skin? How long does the result last and how can I achieve the same effect and benefits? We’re about to answer these questions as we go on revealing all about this biggest celebrity beauty secret; The Oxygen Facial.

What is Oxygen Facial?

Let’s kick this off with the conclusion that Oxygen Facial is non-invasive at all, in fact, it is an alternative to invasive aesthetic treatments like Botox or surgery. Since Bioxage offers only natural and non-invasive treatments, Oxygen facial has been one of the most sought after facials as it rejuvenates the skin and decreases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also enhances overall hydration of the skin.

Getting Oxygen facial at Bioxage Spa is like having the best of both world. Besides the basic deep cleaning as initial steps, the facial therapist performs luxury add-on facial steps that one can’t get from a medical environment, at the same time providing an approach that is more result-oriented. This facial treatment also provides a more personal approach as the therapist conducts a deep skin analysis to determine the proper steps that will suit the client best. By doing this, one can actually foresee what results may occur after the treatment. Apart from all these steps, a Bioxage Oxygen facial is not just an ordinary facial since it incorporates its own and exclusive Bioxage Sauna Mask during the treatment which is proven helpful for blood circulation, sensitivity, acne, and breakouts. In addition to that, a Vitamin C booster is applied right after the mask. Bioxage Vitamin C booster is for all skin types and it helps to even out skin tone, diminish sun damage, breaks and minimize pigmentation and helps the skin to produce natural collagen. Integrating these extra steps promotes a more effective absorption of oxygen which is naturally antibacterial and cooling to the skin.

What to expect?

Celebrities have given away the result of having an oxygen facial treatment. In this case, we’ll say it ourselves; the results are instant and noticeable. Let’s just say that the skin will look glowing right after the facial and the glow will last around 2 weeks or so. Make-up won’t be necessary to that natural glow. However, putting on make-up may enhance that look. Why? Because the skin is more hydrated, tighter and smoother. You can try for yourself.

It is best to do an oxygen facial before a special occasion like weddings, birthdays,and other life events because it provides an instant glowing skin right after the treatment. However, like all the other facial treatments, a single session will not provide a forever result. The skin may look glowing and incredibly brighter and smoother for days up to weeks, it is still best to continue doing a regular oxygen treatment. Usually, celebrities do the treatment once a week up to three months then once a month thereafter. Putting the cost of the treatment plus the celebrity routine on spending money on their skin, it is a total investment.

Well, one doesn’t have to be a celebrity to achieve what Oxygen treatment has to offer. Bioxage recommends doing Oxygen facial at least twice a month on the first two months and once a month thereafter. An Oxygen Facial at Bioxage is usually 60 minutes long and cost $100. By doing so, this regularity will help maintain the skin and will give the same benefits and results. We call it a celebrity investment without investing too much.

And it’s trending…
Last June 2016, Bioxage Spa have launched a special about its Deep Cleansing Facial which helps oily, breakout prone and sensitive skin. This time, Bioxage Spa wants to justify the latest and the most popular celebrity trend; The Oxygen Facial.

“We want that clients will experience the wonderful and amazing results of having an oxygen facial,” says Mercedes Sanchez, the head aesthetician of Bioxage Spa. Mercedes has been providing excellent facial treatment to Bioxage’s clients since its opening date and have received positive reviews on websites like Yelp and Google Plus.

Our Aesthetician’s Top Beauty Tips


Today, I had the pleasure of speaking with BIOXAGE SPA’s expert facial Aesthetician Mercedes Sanchez. She will be sharing all her amazing tips on complexion care, exfoliation, and anti-aging.

Lets get right to it!

What is the most interesting thing you have learned about skin care in your career?

Skin treatments must be customized to each individual’s skin type. At Bioxage, we have a brief consultation with each client before they engage in their facial. I take into consideration, oily, dry, acne, or combination skin, as our goal is to achieve the perfect PH balance!”

What are your best tips for at home care?

  • Always remove make-up before going to bed! I always recommend using cold water, as hot water can dissolve oils in the skin.
  • Use toner always, the best is a product such as BIOXAGE Toner which does not have the ingredient salicylic acid which produces unwanted oil in the skin, which sends the wrong information to the skin, which in turn, creates an imbalance.
  • I recommend morning and evening to use a serum before applying moisturizer. The Bioxage Serum is made exclusively from the Dead Sea products with all natural ingredients such as Almond, Rose Hip and Oilve oils, great for all skin types.

What is your ‘go to’ product?

I love the Bioxage Milk Cleanser, which soothes and softens the skin with natural ingredients such as Almond Oil, Chamomile, Aloe Vera and Verbena.  Cucumber cleans, tightens and conditions the skin all in one! Plus extra added benefits of the Dead Sea water to improve skin circulation.

How often should we exfoliate the skin?

Depending on the skin type, for Dry skin, I recommend once a week.  Oily skin Would be two times per week and leave on for 5 minutes. It is very important to remove the dead cells from the skin so that the skin can breathe and receive products deeper into the skin.

How often do you recommend a facial?

Since skin cells take 21 days to regenerate or ” turn over” I recommend a Professional Facial at least once a month for both dry and oily skin types. At Bioxage we specialize in first analyzing your skin, and then proceed with the proper treatment especially for your skin type.
