Sensitive skin comes in many forms, and can present challenges when it comes to finding a targeted skincare and makeup ritual that’s right for you. And, while skincare is often the focus, the makeup for sensitive skin matters too.
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.
If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you it’s yours forever. Well, we can’t guarantee that it’s here forever, but it’s back for now!

Using a moisturizer twice daily is essential to keeping skin hydrated and preventing any water loss. Using a moisturizer that also addresses your skin concerns, however, can help you obtain both immediate and long term results specific to your skincare needs.
Skin sensitivity can occur for a variety of different reasons at any point in life due to a compromised epidermal barrier. When the skin’s most superficial layer is compromised, symptoms such as redness, irritation and stinging may occur. Strong chemical peels, over-exfoliation, sun exposure and product sensitivity may contribute to increasing skin’s reactivity levels, but rest assured, Glo Skin Beauty provides an entire subcategory of products directed at this common skin concern.
Kakadu Plum is a native Australian fruit known for its incredibly high concentration of Vitamin C. How high are its concentrations, you might ask. Well, they’re 100x that of oranges. Every organ in the body needs Vitamin C, but when ingested, the skin is the last organ to receive any benefit, making a topical Vitamin C product so important. So grab your glass of OJ and learn how to get your Vitamin C delivered topically through skincare.
We all know stress is bad. It can lead to troubles sleeping, depression, digestive problems and more. One thing you may not know is that it can also affect your skin. Skin health can be determined by external factors like sun exposure and pollutants and internal factors like food, genetics and stress.
At Glo Skin Beauty, makeup is an extension of your skincare regimen, so it’s important to select skin-healthy makeup that covers, corrects and protects all while making you look and feel your best. With broad spectrum UV protection and antioxidant benefits, it’s no wonder mineral makeup is a favorite among skincare professionals.
Mineral makeup is all the rage, and for good reason. Made from minerals like mica, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, mineral foundation is better for your skin than regular makeup. Here are nine things you probably didn’t know about mineral makeup foundation that might make you make the switch.
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.
For those of us with sensitive skin, finding a sunscreen that won't irritate our skin can be a difficult task. With the launch of Solar Shade SPF 50 to our sensitive skincare line, we are excited to offer a special solution designed specifically for delicate and sensitive skin.

In addition to carefully picking and using appropriate ingredients, it is equally important to avoid certain things. Abrasive, mechanical/physical exfoliation ingredients of any kind are to be avoided. If Hydroxy Acids are used, they should be infrequent, at low percentages and only those with large molecules for slow absorption are recommended. Lactic and Gluconic Acids are good examples. Mild enzymes can sometimes be tolerated to remove dead skin because they don’t alter the pH of the skin or absorb, they simply break down the superficial dead skin cells on the outermost surface.
One of the primary issues with sensitive skin is the lack of barrier function. The skin’s most important job is to protect and when the skin barrier is not intact, things go awry. The outer stratum of the skin is layers of keratinized, flattened cells that are embedded in a mortar of waterproof lipids. This provides an excellent way of preventing water within from evaporating or leaking out. It also protects the body from anything foreign (such as antigens) from entering.
The science behind sensitive skincare has come a long way in recent years. With new information and studies emerging about sensitive skin triggers, we now have a better understanding on how to treat and care for this common skin identifier. We used this new information to develop our Sensitive Skincare products.
