Hyaluronic acid is one of the tried and true skincare ingredients that you’ve probably seen everywhere over the last few years. We’ve all heard how it’s one of the most hydrating ingredients in skincare, but let’s dive into why you should be incorporating this powerhouse hydrator into your skincare ritual.
While many ingredients and products recommended to address skin concerns are for the most part, the same for all skin tones, there are some conditions that can be problematic for people with more richly-melanated skin. Discover skincare tips for darker skin tones
Throughout the past few decades, if you had oily and/or acne-prone skin, you were likely told to steer clear of any face oils or products containing oils in their formulas. Not only did this mean transitioning to oil-free formulas, it also meant incorporating harsh, drying astringents into your daily routine. The hope was that you would wake up to a balanced and blemish-free complexion but that was rarely the case.
Whether you watched the big game yesterday because you love football, love somebody who loves football or just had nothing better to do, we can bet you probably noticed a fully stocked buffet and bar. Game day snacks and refreshments are almost as important as the game itself and we all know how tempting it can be to ditch your diet for the day and indulge. If you’re like us, feel free to admit that you threw caution to the wind and had yourself a day (and night)- we’re here to help you restore your skin for good.
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.
As our skin cells regenerate in their normal life cycle, old/dead cells naturally slough away, giving way to new cells. This natural process slows down as we age, causing dead cells to build up on skin’s surface, resulting in dry and dull looking skin.
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’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.
Skin type is defined by two things: genetics and oil production. Your predisposition to a skin type is not something that you can change, so it's important to balance your skin with nourishing products. You want your makeup to be an extension of your skincare, so if you have dry or dehydrated skin, look for hydrating, moisturizing mineral makeup that will cover, correct and protect your skin.
There are several misconceptions about 'dry' skin. First of all, let’s be clear, dehydrated skin is not the same as skin that lacks oil. Dry skin lacks oil and is a skin type. Dehydration occurs when there is a lack of water in the skin. It is not a skin type but rather a condition that can come and go depending on the weather, medication, diet, alcohol and caffeine intake, not drinking enough water and/or not keeping the skin protected and moisturized. Even mild dehydration can affect the look and health of the skin.
Dewy, glowing skin is topping several 2015 spring beauty trends to watch lists and it’s not difficult to understand why. A dewy finish leaves skin looking youthful, fresh and luminescent while also providing coverage. We asked our National Makeup Artist, Janeena Billera, to help us pick the right dewy skin finish for every skin type, so take a look and give dewy skin a try this year!
It's estimated that up to 90% of individuals’ skin has surface dehydration. You might be unaware that you are a part of this majority because the symptoms of dehydrating go beyond dry, flaky skin.
As we welcome the new year we turn our focus to one of the most important aspects of our skin’s health: Hydration. Hydration is essential for the overall health of one’s body but is also an important step towards healthy, glowing skin. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day is a great way to keep the skin plump and hydrated and flush any unnecessary toxins from the body. While drinking enough liquids to help our skin function properly is crucial, often times our skin needs an additional boost of hydration in the form of a moisturizer or hydrator.
This time of year can be busier than usual which means our normal health and beauty routines can take a back seat to holiday festivities. Add colder temperatures and drier climates to the mix and your skin might feel anything but holiday party ready.
