By the age 30, oxygen levels in your skin drop by 25% and 50% by age 40. The body will first utilize oxygen in the major organs and lastly, go to the skin. As we age, subcutaneous capillaries become dormant with decreasing cells of oxygen; this combined with environmental stresses and other variables, inhibits the ability of cells to regenerate and function properly and the skin slowly loses its elasticity and collagen. When the skin doesn't get enough oxygen it becomes more prone to aging, acne, redness, irritation, and age spots.
