What do blueberries, dark chocolate, and a certain Vitamin C serums have in common? They all protect against free radicals, working as anti-aging agents to equip your skin with everything it needs to enter more time outdoors this summer. Prep your skin with this essential serum, pop the berries and chocolate in your purse, and you’ll be ready to enjoy longer sunlight and warmer weather!
1 – Cleanse and tone
The first step in prepping your skin to receive the nutrients and benefits of a serum is to cleanse and tone. While cleansers remove the first layer of makeup or the effects of sleep, toners come in as a second wave of cleansing and also has the opportunity to pump the skin full of what it needs – antioxidants included! In the drying months ahead, quench your skin’s summer thirst with Hydrating Gel Cleanser followed by antioxidant-rich Conditioning Mist. You’ll want to wait in between each application, giving your skin time to absorb the tonic and having it return to a semi-dry state before moving forward.
2 – Apply Vitamin C serum
glo’s 15% Vitamin C serum protects the skin from free radicals, which disrupt collagen production and other oxidizing agents. Working actively to protect the skin from UV radiation damage, topically-applied Vitamin C can also improve skin’s elasticity. Along with Vitamin C, the 15% Vitamin C serum contains zinc sulfate, which works on cell growth, removal of collagenase (the old collagen fibers from the skin), and is antibacterial! L-tyrosine rounds out the serum, working alongside the L-ascorbic acid to increase collagen production. Overall, your skin will feel summer-ready and your cells will thank you.
3 – Apply SPF
For light coverage that protects your skin, glo’s got you covered. Finding products that will protect your skin after all the work you just put in is easy with glo, who follows you as you prep your skin for makeup all the way to the final touches.

Using SPF as a base in the summer both on your face and body will keep your skin safe – don’t be afraid to apply it multiple times in the day, especially if you’re out in the sun.
