At some point in your life, you’ll be unhappy with your skin. Whether it’s while fighting bouts of blemishes as a teen, wrestling with dark spots during pregnancy or attempting to slow the unstoppable signs of aging as an adult, it will happen and it will likely happen more than once throughout several stages of life. But don’t lose hope just yet. There is one category of products that offers a strong chance of fighting (and beating) your most unfavorable skin concerns. You may or may not be familiar with them but it’s never too early to learn. So, without further ado, let’s talk about SERUMS.
Serums are the small but mighty powerhouse of your skincare routine. At Glo, our serums combine ingredients from science and nature, capable of completely transforming your skin. Better yet, their benefits are specialized, so you can be confident your unique needs will be addressed.
You’ll want to incorporate serums into your routine after cleansing and toning but before moisturizing. If using multiple serums, make sure to layer from lightest to heaviest (TIP: the more watery it feels, the lighter it is). Because serums are incredibly active products, it’s vital that you follow all instructions and only use as directed. Some serums may be designed for daily use, while others are not. Additionally, many ingredients featured in our serums such as Retinol and Salicylic Acid can make skin more sensitive, so a daily SPF is required.
Ready to jump into the world of serums but not sure where to begin? Let’s take a look at our top picks:
Our number-one seller for a reason, Renew Serum features the skincare trifecta: Retinol, Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid. It’s the perfect treatment for addressing acne concerns, as it helps keep pores clear with Salicylic and Glycolic Acids. Additionally, it’s also incredibly successful at preventing signs of aging. Retinol helps retexturize the skin to smooth fine lines and the percentage is just the right amount to be effective without over-drying, great for any first time Retinol users.
Universally applicable for any skin type (including acne-prone and sensitive), Daily Power C has changed the game for Vitamin C serums. Our updated formula (Oct. 2017) does not oxidize, a common problem with Vitamin C serums. This leads to the product changing color and losing efficacy. Using a Vitamin C serum defends your skin from environmental dangers that can cause premature signs of aging. If you’re looking for more than just preventative measures, try Daily Power C+.
Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin concern but not everyone is comfortable with the highly active ingredients which help treat it, which is why we offer a formula that uses natural brighteners. This gentle formula addresses uneven tone and dark spots, revealing a brighter complexion. Brightening Serum is a Level 1 brightener but we also offer Level 2 and 3 for more drastic hyperpigmentation concerns.
A must-have for anyone whose skin has ever been ‘out of whack’. Corrective Soothing Serum restores calm to the skin, leaving you with a strengthened and more radiant complexion. Even if you don’t consider your skin sensitive, this serum is great to have on hand to use on occasion.
