About “Karin Herzog” – World Leader in Oxygen Skincare

“Karin Herzog patented Target & Correct Oxygenating Moisturising Creams – encapsulated with Vitamin A will normalise the skin no matter the skin type!!”

Dr. Paul Herzog founder of the world leader in oxygen skincare line ‘Karin Herzog’ – devoted his career to researching the powerful effects of oxygen throughout the human body and concluded it was also the one key influencing factor for maintaining and restoring a healthy epidermis.  In 1974 he was successful in stabilising active oxygen in an emulsion and the skincare line Karin Herzog (named after his wife) Target & Correct formulations were born.

While most other oxygen based skin care brands focus on attracting oxygen to the skin Karin Herzog is the only skincare line capable of actually delivering active oxygen directly *into the skin.

Once applied to the skin the active oxygen in the emulsion goes through a conversion process converting liquid phase oxygen to a gas pressure. This pressure delivers bioavailable oxygen into the deeper layers of the skin thus infusing skin with usable and lasting oxygen and this proven formula is why the brand name ‘Karin Herzog’ was awarded its global patent.

Research proved that poor skin function and appearance is instigated by low levels of oxygen and a sluggish circulation, however when an emulsion containing active oxygen is delivered into the skin it reveals dramatic transformational results for the skin.  On application of the product the oxygen level within the skin radically increases, skin is hydrated (as during the oxygen breakdown of Hydrogen Peroxide the oxygen converts to one molecule of pure oxygen and 2 molecules of water) and all other essential nutrients in the formula are transported into the deeper layer of the epidermis boosting the skin with the necessary energy and raw materials to repair itself, regulate and normalise all skin functions to its optimum health.  To view the Karin Herzog philosophy in video format click the link here

Oxygen is a safe natural antiseptic and highly effective at detoxifying, restoring and  normalising the epidermis (skin).  The preservative free formulations can be used on all skin types from the most sensitive to those with severe problem skin.  The range have been formulated with varying stabilised oxygen strengths and anti ageing properties and are suitable to treat various skin concerns such as acne, combination skin, hyperpigmentation and rosacea.  *Prolonged use results in healthy and revitalised skin .

Gel Polish Rules

For the record Gel polish does not ruin nails but breaking the rules that apply whilst wearing gel polish will!!

Take a look at the list in the pic below and see if you are guilty of any..

Gel Polish Rules


Peeling off gel polish destroys nails completely as it takes layers off the nail bed so no matter the temptation avoid, avoid, avoid and rather have them removed properly either at the salon or by soaking them off at home using acetone based polish remover that will remove gel polish from the nails effortlessly.

Also worth mentioning Beauty Vibes does not charge for gel polish removal with a gel polish re-application (if your gel polish was applied at Beauty Vibes) so no excuses for missing appointments and peeling polish issues!!

If however you have been peeling off gel polish and your nails are de-hydrated and now look delaminated, there are solutions to remedy damaged nails back to health and one solution is treating you nails to a professional “IBX” nail treatment.

A single IBX treatment will boost the nails with strength and lock in hydration whilst a course of IBX treatments is recommended for very badly damaged nails.

To read more about the ‘benefits of IBX and how this professional nail treatment can nurture and restore your natural nails back to optimum health click the Nail Repair Treatments tab in the link provided below;
