When building a skincare regimen, it is essential to first determine your skin type if you want to see the best results from your products. Similarly, buying products that also address your unique skin concerns can drastically improve how you feel about your products. If you have oily, acneic skin, you’re likely going to hate a rich face moisturizer because it will exacerbate your concerns instead of alleviating them. Without knowing your skin type and skin concerns, it is almost impossible to choose the right products. Especially because there are some products that sound appealing even when they’re not meant for your skin type. If you fall for the benefits without considering your skin type you will be upset when the product doesn’t perform how you want.
Just as the seasons change each September, so can the skin’s oil production. During the warmer months you may notice an increase in oil production, then as the temperatures drop, you may find yourself reaching for a heavy night cream to cure any dryness.
Here at Glo Skin Beauty we love plant stem cells for their ability to produce dramatic results. We even have an entire collection dedicated to these potent ingredients, which you may know as our Phyto-Active Collection. This exciting technology is found in another future Glo Skin Beauty ingredient, Citystem™, which uses plant stem cell technology to prevent pollution damage to the skin.
If you’ve ever experienced forehead shine with cheek dryness, you’re likely among the vast majority of people living with Combination Skin. Combination Skin is exactly what you would think: two common skin types, oily and dry, combined on one face, which results in an oily t-zone and dry cheek area. Finding products that both manage oil production and hydrate can be a daunting task, which is why Glo Skin Beauty created its Combination Skin Set.
If you’re familiar with our Skin Sets, you’ve surely noticed offerings for both oily and dry skin types. But what about anyone with combination skin? If your skin type is stuck somewhere in the middle of the oil production spectrum, you’re not alone. Did you know combination skin is the most common skin type out there? And it’s exactly what the name says- a combination of both oily and dry skin, where you may produce excess oil in the t-zone but experience dryness in the cheek area- all in the same day!
One of the most buzzworthy beauty ingredients these days is Hyaluronic Acid. With so many women searching for a youthful glow, it makes sense that everyone--regardless of age and skin type--is turning to this stand-out ingredient.
If you’re serious about skincare then you understand the importance of knowing what’s in your products. There’s nothing worse than realizing months into a regimen that you’ve been using the wrong products for your individual skin type. For those of you who skew on the oily side, mattifying products are essential to your routine. They help combat your excess oil whether it’s an all day issue or a late afternoon shine.
Sometimes the best beauty ingredients come right from the ground, or the vine. Vine-Eco, an extract from grape leaves, is a stand-out skincare ingredient that has provided multiple health benefits for thousands of years. Used widely across the world, this essential element plays a huge role in managing and preventing environmental damage, as it is packed with a variety of potent antioxidants.
One of the major issues facing Combination Skin Types is the cheek-area dehydration. All over hydration is the key to youthful skin, regardless of skin type, but it can be difficult to find a product that hydrates while also addressing areas with excess oil production. A great ingredient that moisturizes and combats cheek dehydration is AcquaCell™. This natural complex of Watermelon, Lentil and Apple Extracts targets key moisturizing elements of the stratum corneum.
It can be difficult to pinpoint your exact skin type, especially when the weather and environment can have such a big impact on the day-to-day condition of your skin, but two key indicators determine your skin type: genetics and oil production. The most critical part to building your skin regimen is to properly identify your skin type and pick your core, daily products accordingly. These are our recommended basic regimens by skin type, but they can always be personalized with alternative products.
