Oxygen Skincare offers free schools presentation workshops

Media release: Oxygen Skincare offers free personal presentation workshops to teens in schools around NZ

Award-winning natural skincare company Oxygen is offering free interactive, in-school workshops to teenagers around New Zealand.

Nelson-based Oxygen Skincare owner Alana Riley has been offering similar workshops to teenagers for more than 20 years and currently provides free workshops at a Nelson intermediate. She believes that the tips and techniques she offers can make a real difference to teenagers’ self-esteem and grooming, with great flow-on effects in all aspects of their lives.

“I have seen thousands of teenagers benefit from the information I provide about how to care for their skin and present themselves well,” says Alana. “Even though I have a skincare product range the workshops are not about promoting those products – I usually don’t even mention them. The workshops are about helping teenagers to feel good about themselves and achieve their potential.”

Oxygen Skincare is currently sending promotional flyers about its workshops to schools around the country and hopes to finalise its workshop delivery programme by the end of May.

If you are interested in your school hosting one of the free workshops please ask at your school office or contact Oxygen Skincare directly either via its Facebook page or its website at www.oxygenskincare.co.nz .

Those attending workshops will be asked if they would like to contribute a gold coin donation. Money raised will be passed on to the nearest local branch of Big Brothers Big Sisters NZ.

“I am currently a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentor and really value the work that the organisation does. My teenage years were really tough with my father dying when I was 15 and then with me having to nurse my terminally ill mother from when I was 17 until her death when I was 21. If I can help make the journey for today’s teens any easier then I will do what I can to help.”

About Oxygen Skincare:
Oxygen Skincare is an award winning natural skincare products company based in Nelson, New Zealand established by Alana Riley in 2009. Alana’s inspiration for starting the company was to provide a range of skincare products without nasty chemical ingredients, and a teen line of skincare so that teenagers could get a really good, healthy start to using skincare that is natural and not harmful to their skin.

Oxygen Skincare products all contain organic hop produced at the Australasia’s largest organic hop producing farm ‘New Hoplands’ in Tapawera, near Nelson. Alana and her husband Colin Oldham own ‘New Hoplands’ and have produced organic hops there for twenty years.

Alana has extensive knowledge of the beauty industry. She owned the Spotlight Modeling Agency in Christchurch, as well as operating Purity 3, her own grooming and deportment school, for more than18 years. Alana enjoys working with teenagers and has developed a special Oxygen range for teen skins.
