An ode to O2, and Bulgari’s Newest Facial Masks

Oxygen, so vital to the living Earth

It fuels us, and gives our cells power

Without it the world would cease to exist.

By its definition, oxygen is a naturally occurring gas in the Periodic Table of the Elements. It is a colorless, odorless, gas that prefers to show itself as the diatomic molecule O2. It is also the most abundant element in all living organisms. Obviously, oxygen is kind of a big deal.

So what does this have to do with beauty, you may ask? Well, oxygen has now become a powerful component in the fight against aging, thanks to Bulgari’s Masque Precieux Intensive Regenerating Mask. Combining an innovative oxygen carrier with Bulgari’s signature gem essence, as well as polypeptides, this light foamy mask not only encourages skin oxygenation, but also counters the signs of aging.Bulgari Masque de Lumiere

So how does it work, on the cellular level? The oxygen carrier serves to detoxify dermal cells, while helping to relieve the surface tensions that cause fine lines and wrinkles. The polypeptide component serves to support and induce the production of skin cell strengthening collagen, elastin, fibronectin, and hyaluronic acid.

Application goes to the tune of a liberal application to both face and neck, with a ten to fifteen minute settle time for the mask to work its magic. I would like to mention that there is a distinct luxury factor, as the mask both looks and feels both expensive and lush. The texture is light and airy, not unlike that of a whipped dessert mousse. Bulgari recommends using this as an intensive treatment 2 or 3 times a week for 3 weeks, and once a week thereafter for maintenance. Well, don’t mind if I do.

Months later, my skin has honestly never looked better. From the first breaths we take on this Earth, to our last, oxygen is a part of us. Now, oxygen is a part of our skincare routines, too, thanks to Bulgari’s Masque Precieux Intensive Regenerating Mask. Look for this luxurious new addition at Bergdorf Goodman.
