What's Your Vitamin C IQ?
Antioxidant Behavior  

 

WHAT IS A SKIN SERUM?

With their ability to deliver essential nutrients and address very specific skin concerns, serums are rapidly growing in popularity. Usually a thin, liquid like substance, serums are designed to penetrate deeply into the skin to help provide essential nutrients.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SERUM & A MOISTURIZER? While a serum can help hydrate, its primary focus isn't necessarily moisturization. Serums are designed to add nutrients to the skin deeper than surface level. Another difference is the size of the molecules in a serum, which are much smaller than the molecules of a moisturizer. These smaller molecules can penetrate into the skin while moisturizers tend to stay on the top layers.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A SERUM? Using a serum can be instrumental for radiant-looking skin. Serums can help brighten, tighten, reduce appearance of age spots, and soothe irritation and inflammation. Those who use serums can usually see an immediate difference in the texture and tone of their skin.

WHEN SHOULD I APPLY A SERUM? Serums should be applied to a clean face preferably after toning. Most serums work best when applied daily in the morning or evening. Be sure to check the directions and perform a spot test before applying a serum.

WHICH SERUM SHOULD I CHOOSE? The serum you choose should depend on your skin type and the skin conditions you would like to improve. glo therapeutics carries many amazing serums that help with a variety of issues.

 

Vitamin C IQ

 

WHICH SERUM SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Renew Serum: Stimulates cell growth to improve skin's texture and tone. Works for all skin types and best applied nightly 2-3 times a week.

15% Vitamin C Serum: Defends against free radical damage to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Works for all skin types and is best applied in the morning after toning.

Triple Action Serum: Inhibits the production of melanin to help lighten dark spots, clear skin and refine texture. Recommended for aging or sun-damaged skin and also works well to combat hyperpigmentation. Use nightly up to 6 months.

Super Serum: Reduces the degree and depth of wrinkles while tightening and strengthening the skin's cell matrix. Recommended for all skin types and can be applied 2-7 times per week.

Cyto-Luxe Serum: Smooths the appearance of wrinkles by helping promote collagen production while softening the appearance of expression lines. Works best on mature skin and can be applied daily.

Acne Treatment Before and After

 

 

 

WHAT IS ACNE? Acne is a skin condition affecting approximately 17 million Americans. Acne is characterized by multiple whiteheads, blackheads, papules and pustules on the face, chest and back. It develops when grease from the skin's glands plug the tiny hair follicle openings which leads to clogged pores. When bacteria grows in these clogged pores it leads to different types of inflammation resulting in acne.

WHAT CAUSES ACNE? There's been lots of speculation over the years about what causes acne. It has been linked to chocolate, exercise, cheese... but scientist are now saying that genetics and hormones are the only two proven culprits. When hormones change due to adolescence or pregnancy there is a rise in androgen levels. Androgen is a hormone that can cause oil glands under your skin to increase in size which in turn stimulates increased oil and sebum production. Sebum is an oily or waxy matter that is necessary for keeping skin hydrated and helps give the skin a waterproof like quality. However, too much sebum or oil can break down cell walls and encourage bacteria to grow leading to inflamed and clogged pores. Studies also show that high levels of oil that lead to acne can be genetic.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ACNE? Acne is characterized by redness, uneven skin tone and blemishes. There are several different forms of acne that can sometimes become very painful or inflamed. Whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts are all different types of acne that generally manifest as red, white or black bumps on the skin.

At Home Acne Treatment

HOW CAN I TREAT ACNE?

The best way to treat acne is to reduce bacteria build up and oil formation under the skin. Spas and dermatologists can offer very effective professional treatments to reduce the symptoms of acne including peels and masks. For at home treatment we suggest using oil-free products containing Totarol, Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide. These acne fighters are proven to reduce flare ups and redness.

What's Your Vitamin C IQ?
Antioxidant Behavior  

 

THE SCIENCE OF VITAMIN C AND ANTI-AGING

Over the past several years, you may have come across research into something called free radicals and how they relate to the aging process. Free radicals are molecules that are missing an electron in their outer rings, making them unstable. Because the free radical molecule is unstable, it will "steal" electrons from the nearby atoms in healthy cells, creating another free radical and setting off a cycle of free radical creation, which ultimately results in destruction of healthy cells and tissue. We are exposed to these free radicals from things like UV rays, pollution, cigarette smoke and stress. Free radicals are thought to cause a number of skin conditions related to aging, including skin darkening, inflammation, and the breakdown of collagen and elastin – elements that make the skin plump and youthful. Years of exposure to free radicals causes our skin to show signs of aging.

 

 

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO REPAIR SKIN AND PROTECT IT FROM FURTHER DAMAGE:

Advancements and discoveries in modern skin care have resulted in a solution in the form of antioxidants. Antioxidants are the heroes that come along to protect our skin from free radicals – they have the potential to slow the signs of aging. As an antioxidant, L-ascorbic Acid (also known as Vitamin C) has garnered serious attention. Research shows that it stimulates collagen production, while simultaneously working as an anti-inflammatory to speed up wound healing. While eating your citrus every day is certainly healthy, it alone will not be effective in the fight against the aging process. When ingested, a very small percentage of Vitamin C actually reaches the skin. Topical application is preferred for maximum skin care benefit, and L-ascorbic Acid is the only form of Vitamin C that penetrates the skin. Start your skin care routine by applying topical Vitamin C every morning for protection against free radical damage, and start seeing results in as little as 8-12 weeks.

 

Vitamin C IQ

 

WHAT YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR IN A VITAMIN C SERUM:

The right pH: Studies show pH needs to be between 2.0 - 3.8 in order for Vitamin C serums to be effectively absorbed into the skin - choose a serum in this range. All of our glo therapeutics Vitamin C serums fall in this range for maximum efficacy.

The right form of Ascorbic Acid: Clinical studies show the chirally correct form of Ascorbic Acid is the only form of Vitamin C the body recognizes and therefore can utilize to help support collagen synthesis. Choose a Vitamin C serum that uses L-ascorbic Acid. You guessed right, all glo therapeutics Vitamin C serums utilize L-ascorbic Acid.

Added benefits: Supporting ingredients can boost the antioxidant benefits of Ascorbic Acid. Consider a serum like Ultra 15% Vitamin C which harnesses advanced supporting ingredients. Protect your protection: The dark amber bottle our Vitamin C serums come in protects the serum from sunlight to preserve its efficacy.

The most important step in selecting your proper foundation shade is to first identify your skin's undertone. The skin's undertone is the natural tone that will never change. For example, if you are olive skinned, you will always remain olive skinned even if the shade of your skin appears lighter or darker over time due to sun exposure or age.

The winter months can bring cold,  harsh conditions. To keep skin glowing, no matter the season,  it’s important to protect it from the elements. Here are three of our best winter skin care tips:

1. Exfoliate for Healthier Skin

A key to smoother, more radiant skin is exfoliation. Exfoliation brightens and refreshes skin by removing dead skin cells. It also enhances the absorption of active ingredients in serums like our top-selling Triple Action Serum.

Products to Try:

Brightening Polish - Brightens and refreshes skin by removing dead skin cells and debris to enhance the absorption of natural brighteners. 

Refresh Facial Polish - Pure Mint Essential Oils lend an invigorating tingle while also refreshing the senses.

2. Stay Balanced

Make sure you use a product with Hyaluronic Acid in addition to your moisturizer because it will help your skin stay balanced. Hyaluronic Acid attracts and maintains 1,000 times its weight in water while preventing trans-epidermal water loss and protecting against environmental aggressors. 

Products to Try:

Pure Hydration - Boosts hydration through an infusion of water binding humectants.

Advanced B5 Hydration - Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 naturally provide exceptional nourishment and hydration to the skin. 

2. Get Serious About Moisture 

Select a slightly heavier moisturizer that will help seal in your skin's natural moisture, protect against dehydration, and provide a buffer against temperature extremes.

Products to Try:

Vita E Essential Cream - Replenishes moisture and fortifies skin with antioxidants to maintain the health of collagen.

Moisture Rich Cream - Restores and repairs fragile skin with nutrient-rich, ultra hydrating ingredients.

Conditioning Restorative Cream - Delivers moisture and skin-strengthening antioxidants to protect and repair excessively dry, dehydrated skin.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo – Today USA Field Hockey announced a premier partnership with glōProfessional, a leading skin care, make-up and hair care company dedicated to the beauty and integrity of women. The multi-year agreement will feature glo on the front of the Women’s National Team jersey and represents the first ever corporate advertiser on the Women’s National Team uniform.

"Everyone at glōProfessional feels honored to be a part of the achievements of these world-class athletes," said Sean Butler, President of glo Professional.  "We're passionate about helping athletes perform their best when they're competing and we take great pride in their belief and trust in the benefits of our products. The field hockey team shows the power and grace that comes from feeling confident in your appearance, making them a natural fit for the glo brand. We are proud to work with these amazing women competing in the London 2012 Olympic Games."

As the official uniform sponsor, the glo brand will receive placement on the front of the Women’s National Team jersey and podium suits. Jersey-front sponsors are frequently seen amongst golfers, soccer teams around the world, Nascar and IndyCar drivers. In addition, the glo brand will have prominent placement across all National USA Field Hockey events and media.

“glōProfessional represents an exciting addition to our family of premier sponsors, said Steve Locke, Executive Director, USA Field Hockey. Securing a uniform sponsor is a testament to the success of the Women’s National Team qualifying for London and the increase in membership numbers over the last year. We are pleased to be partnering with an organization that shares similar values as USA Field Hockey and is committed to helping us grow the game from the grassroots to the Olympic level.”

glōProfessional will also partner with USA Field Hockey on the Sun Safe Play initiative, an educational program designed to raise awareness on the importance of playing and practicing safely in the sun and the prevention of melanoma and skin cancer.

"glōProfessional is proud to partner with the USA Field Hockey Team for the Sun Safe Play! program to raise awareness and prevention of melanoma and skin cancer and stress the importance of using sun protection properly every day,” said Lisa Bookman, Director of Marketing for glōProfessional.

Maria Whitehead, a former Junior National Team member lost her life to melanoma on November 1, 2006 at only the age of 25. Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers and accounts for nearly half of all cancer in the United States. More than 2 million cases are found in the U.S. each year. Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, will account for more than 75,000 cases of skin cancer in 2012. 

“Damaging UV rays can pass through clouds, haze and even windows so it is important to wear sun protection when you are inside as well as outside. Sun protection should be a part of your everyday personal care routine including your skin care, make-up and even hair care. All of glōProfessional’s product lines provide UV protection in their formulations, for healthy and proper sun protection," said Bookman.

“We are delighted to welcome glōProfessional as our official uniform sponsor and partner in the Sun Safe Play initiative,” said Simon Hoskins, Managing Director, Business Development. “The growth of field hockey in recent years has better positioned us to drive value to our sponsors and in glo we have a partner committed to work with us to develop our sport.

The U.S. Women’s National Team will reveal their new uniforms May 19, in the first match of a four game series against Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and at glo, we're proud to support the cause by donating a portion of proceeds from the  special-edition Gloss inpink blossom to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for the fourth-consecutive year.

According to the NBCF, breast cancer is one of the most prevalent causes of cancer-related death among American women, second only to lung cancer. Each year, approximately 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and 40,000 will die from it. But women are not the only ones vulnerable to the disease. Roughly 1,700 cases each year are also found among men. Statistics like these tell only part of the story. They do not take into account the effect breast cancer has on the families, friends and supporters of those fighting the disease. That's why we are so grateful for the opportunity support all those affected by breast cancer and to join the National Breast Cancer Foundation in its mission to extend women's lives through education and early detection.

Several members of the glōProfessional team can personally attest to the fact that for those faced with fighting breast cancer and the loved ones who help them - the diagnosis can be overwhelming and intimidating. Cathleen Tatman, glōProfessional’s director of marketing, recalls when her mother was diagnosed in 2007. Even though her mother  “is now doing fantastically,” Tatman wanted to do something to help others who find themselves in a similar situation.

“We are a company that has mostly a female audience, and so I thought it was something that would be important to our customers as well,” she said. That's why glōProfessional began donating to the NBCF in 2008, but the support does't stop there. This year, a small group of glōProfessional staff members will join together for the first time to participate in Denver’s Race for the Cure sponsored by the Susan G. Koman Foundation.

“Race for the Cure is a wonderful cause,” said Executive Assistant Dee Carsten. “Until you have participated in the race/walk, a person just can’t realize what a moving experience this is. There are men and children running [and] walking along with women…most everyone knows someone who has been affected.” 

So whether survivor, supporter or friend, we join you this month and always and we celebrate the wonderful community united in the fight against breast cancer.

Age-defying skin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


One thing we often hear from our customers (usually accompanied by a deep sigh of resignation) is that wrinkles and aging are inevitable. Well, yes – and NO! There are some factors that cause aging skin that we can control.

Before we go any further, let’s differentiate between intrinsic and extrinsic aging:

  • Intrinsic aging is a natural process that is programmed by your genes. Obviously, we have little control over this.
  • Extrinsic aging is the bigger problem and causes more damage. Factors that we are exposed to on a regular basis and cause extrinsic aging include pollution, the amount of alcohol we drink, our nutritional in-take, the amount of sleep we get and, most important, our exposure to the sun.

 

Our skin protects our internal organs very proficiently but pays a price because unlike other organs, we wear it on the outside. Photo-aging (sun damage) can take decades to show up. By the time we are aware of it, it's too late to completely reverse the damage. The sun can cause freckles, age spots, spider veins, rough and leathery skin, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, irregular skin pigmentation and even skin cancer.

The good news is that we do have some control over how our skin ages! Healthy lifestyle habits and limited, protected exposure to the sun will result in dramatically younger-looking skin. We can't stress enough how important it is to wear sunscreen everyday! Try glō•therapeutics lightweight Oil Free SPF 40+ - it's non-comedogenic, hydrating and offers broad-spectrum protection. Apply daily and slow down extrinsic aging!

 

 

 

Good things come in small packages and glo therapeutics Vital Eye Cream is no exception. This cream packs a potent punch for reducing under eye puffiness. The deeply hydrating cream puts Eyeliss' clinically proven peptide technology to work for your eyes.

How Eyeliss works


The Eyeliss ingredient complex strengthens capillaries and veins and improves lymphatic drainage and drainage of fluids causing puffiness in the under eye area. It also decreases inflammation and improves skin elasticity. Clinical proof is stacking up: Buzzle.com reports one clinical trial's results: "It [Eyeliss] increased lymphatic drainage by an amazing 85%. It also helped improve the capillary permeability by 25%. Studies showed Eyeliss is an elite under-eye ingredient that can treat the causes of eye puffiness."

A dynamic duo

Pairing Eyeliss with great antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients increases its effectiveness at reducing under eye puffiness and circles. We've gotten rave reviews from this treatment ( a favorite of glominerals makeup artist Aldo Celeste!):
Cleanse and tone skin then apply 7.5% Vitamin C Eye Gel (which has a host of fabulous, cutting-edge ingredients in addition to rock star antioxidant, Vitamin C). Allow it to absorb before applying Vital Eye Cream to the eye area. For extra hydration, apply B5 Hydration before Vital Eye Cream.


Freshen up your eyes and decrease puffiness and under eye circles with Vital Eye Cream and its star ingredient, Eyeliss. Pair it with 7.5% Vitamin C Eye Gel for an extra anti-under eye circle, antioxidant and anti-aging boost!

 

 

 

Dry skin is characterized by a lack of moisture in the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. The barrier of the skin is comprised of fatty acids, ceramides, and cholesterol. A dysfunctional barrier cannot hold the proper amount of water and allows moisture to evaporate from the skin.
 

 

 

 

If the hydration levels are not increased in the skin, the depletion of water causes a reduction in the cohesiveness between corneocytes, the cells that make up the stratum corneum. As a result, the corners of the corneocytes turn up and eventually will scale and flake - commonly known as dry skin. The skin then becomes dry and brittle. Rough surfaces do not refract light as clearly and the healthy glow from the microcirculation is hidden by the accumulation of corneocytes. Aging skin shows an increase in dehydration and a slower recovery from damage to the skin's surface.

<< Dysfunctional barrier: dry skin cells cannot hold proper amount of moisture in the skin, resulting in cells that scale and flake.

 

 

Cosmeceutical moisturizers like the new glotherapeutics Moisturize and Restore collection address dry skin symptoms by raising hydration levels in the stratum corneum and by acting as a natural barrier to keep the nutrients in the skin.

Essential fatty acids, ceramides, emollients and humectants will reverse the negative effects of dry skin by restoring elasticity, leaving the skin smooth and velvety soft.

A functional barrier: skin cells that are properly hydrated retain more moisture in the skin, resulting in a smooth, soft surface. >>

Be sure to visit the following pages below, or read on for what makes glo mineral makeup the best!

 

glo mineral makeup is different from other mineral makeup lines:

  • Talc Free: Our makeup does not contain any talc, though it is commonly found in traditional makeup lines as a bulking agent. Products containing talc require a heavier application due to lack of pure pigment, causing the makeup to settle into fine lines and larger pores.
  • Our powders are triple milled, unlike most other mineral makeup brands. This means that the powder is much finer and will lay smoothly on the skin.
  • Our non-comedogenic formulations contain pharmaceutical grade ingredients and powerful antioxidants for additional skin benefits.

Depending on where you reside, the winter months can require increased heat at home and everywhere else you go. Unfortunately, that heat is a major cause for dry skin! For some people, dry skin means flaking, cracking, and even eczema (in which the skin becomes inflamed).

Sound familiar? Check out glo's 10 tips for improving your skin care regimen, to help maintain moist and healthy skin throughout the winter months.

 

 

1. Boost Hydration with Skin Serums.

You may have a moisturizer that works for spring and summer, but as the weather changes, so should your skin care routine.

Try a hydration-boosting serum from glo therapeutics. Pure Hydration  is perfect to wear under your favorite moisturizer day and night.



 

 


 

 

2. Sport Your Sunscreen Daily.

Sunscreen is not just for summertime. Combine winter sun with snow glare and the skin damage could be drastic.

Apply glo.therapeutics Oil Free SPF 40+ daily under your makeup. About 30 minutes before going outside, apply it to your hands as well if they're exposed. Reapply frequently if you will be outside for a long period of time.

 

 

 

 

3. Seek help from the pros.

If you go to your local drugstore or department store, you'll be hard-pressed to find a salesperson who can offer adequate advice. That's why going to an esthetician or dermatologist even once is a good investment. Such a specialist can analyze your skin type, troubleshoot your current skin care regimen, and give you advice on the skin care products you should be using. Call us for a list of spas or dermatologists who use our skincare and makeup products in your area! 800-903-4321.

 

 

4. Hydrate While You Lather.

Hydrating your body is helpful in the winter months, but is necessary in the anti-aging process year-round! Replace your old body soap with glominerals body wash. This delicate blend of essential oils and shea butter cleanses AND hydrates the skin.

 

 

5. Butter your Body

Lock moisture into your skin daily with glo.minerals Body Butter in honey sugar butter. Not only does this luxe body lotion feel and smell wonderful, it is also full of natural extracts and moisturizing agents formulated to deliver superior nourishment and emollients to the skin to protect and hydrate. Apply all over every day after a shower - great for hand cream too!

 

 

6. Simulate Humidity

We already covered the fact that your central heating system, as well as space heaters, blast hot dry air. Humidifiers get moisture into the air and help prevent dry skin. Place a couple throughout your space for an even distribution of humidity. Your skin will be so happy!

 

7. Treat your feet

Although created for the skin on your face, the glo therapeutics Barrier Balm is a god-send for your dry, cracking feet (this applies year round).

Apply a pea-size amount to feet before bed, throw on some socks and wake up to soft, smooth tootsies. If you share a bed with someone – believe us, he or she will appreciate it! (Try the Barrier Balm on your face after a long day on the slopes - you'll love it!)

 

8. Baby your face

If your facial skin is uncomfortably dry, avoid harsh peels, masks, and alcohol-based toners or astringents, all of which can strip vital oil from your skin. Instead, try the glo therapeutics Conditioning Milk Cleanser and Conditioning Tonic, followed by Restorative Cream.

Use masks that are deeply hydrating, rather than clay-based which tend to draw moisture out of the face. The glo therapeutics Restorative Mask can be worn up to 7 nights a week, all night long for maximum hydration and restoration.

 

9. Makeup for lost hydration


Yes, your makeup could be drying out your skin if you are not wearing mineral makeup! Did you know that it's actually healthier for your skin to wear mineral makeup than to wear no makeup at all? glo.minerals contains vitamins and minerals that help balance hydration in the skin.

Our foundations also allow your pores to breathe and offer extra sun protection. Available in 4 foundation options; pressed powder, loose powder, sheer tint liquid and regular liquid (available in matte or satin finish), and a large variety of color tones. glo.minerals is beautifully natural and easy to use!

 

10. Lip Tips

Chapped? Yeah, we thought so...your lips don't have oil glands, so they dry out very easily. So, here are some tips – for your lips!

  • Don't lick – wetting your lips consistently causes them be cyclically wet, then dry and that's why they get chapped.
  • Cover Up – On cold and windy days, protect your lips behind a scarf.
  • Lip Balm – Exposure to the sun can make already chapped lips even worse, so plan ahead and always carry a lip balm with an SPF of at least 15 or more. Try the glo.minerals Mint Balm SPF 15. Soft and minty and big so you don't lose it as easily!

Q: Can I wash my brush? If so, how often and how should I clean them?

A: All brushes are washable* and we recommend daily cleaning with the glominerals brush cleaner. A more thorough cleaning is recommended at least every 2 weeks. For the natural hair brushes we recommend you use a gentle baby shampoo or a conditioning shampoo. An antibacterial soap is sufficient for the synthetic brushes – these should be washed at least every two weeks as well. Cleaning your brushes is important because oils from the face get in between the bristles and can generate bacteria growth and germs. Cleaning your brushes will reduce your chances of break-outs and increase your chances of clearer skin!

*Please note, glominerals recommends that you wash the brushes with the bristles facing down. Do not allow water to enter the barrel of the handle. Water trapped in the barrel can rot the adhesive, leading to an unpleasant odor and brush hair loss.

 

glo.minerals smoky eye how-to

 

The classic Smoky eye

smoky eyes - runway



Fact:

Smoky eyes are swarming the red carpet and fashion runways this year, seen on some of the most glamorous women in the world. We "regular girls" never tire of gawking at their beautiful dresses, fabulous hair, and perfect makeup, picturing how we would look with that haircut or those fabulous eyes (and legs!).

Another Fact:

Well, it's time to stop your day dreaming about a world-renowned makeup artist creating a sultry look for your red carpet or runway debut. We're here to challenge you to try applying your own smoky eye makeup. I'm going to teach you how to be your very own best makeup artist! Just follow these simple steps and read carefully over the helpful tips from glo skincare to help you create your own stunning smoky eye this holiday season. You'll blow your fellow holiday party-goers right out of their festive little sweaters!

 



Before you start:

Stop! Don't apply your foundation first! You always want to start with your eyes when doing a smoky eye, as eye makeup has a tendency to fall on the face. When you start with your eye makeup, you can really go to town! Have fun and clean the mess up later. Here's how you do it:
 

5 Easy Steps:

1. First, apply a light neutral color all over your lids, from your lashes up under your eye brows. You want to use a large eye makeup brush, preferably the glo.minerals eye base brush.
 

2. Next, with a medium-dark color and the glo.minerals base brush, go over your lid from the eye lashes up right under the crease of your eye. Make sure to blend both colors really well. 

3. Now, for the smoky part! With your dark, smoky color and a crease-specific brush (glo.minerals mini crease brush), starting at the outer edge of your eye, work the brush back and forth in the crease, like a windshield wiper motion – but, only go ¾ of the way over your eye. It's always best to apply in layers. So, start out with a light hand and layer color to desired level of 'sultriness'. 

4. With a dark eye pencil, line the entire upper lash line from outer edge to inner corner. Using the glo.minerals smudge brush, go over the pencil line with a similar or slightly lighter eye shadow color than the pencil to create a softer line. Apply the same eye shadow with the smudge brush under your lower lash line from the outside edge to the inside corner – blend well. 

5. Finish with two coats of Volumizing Mascara.

smoky eye do

Insider tip: When using loose shimmer shadows to create this look, make sure to tap off your brush before applying the color. This will ensure that you don't add too much and allow you to build the color.


halle berry

Use the smudge brush and eye shadow to create a softer line as seen here on Halle Berry. If you’re using a Gel eyeliner or pencil to line the eyes you can set the color with an eyeshadow of the same color or a lighter shade. This will also soften the line and give the eyes a more sultry look.

katherine heigl

Is this look too much? We think not. That is the beauty behind creating a gorgeous smoky eye, it doesn’t always have to be done in black. Blues, pastels, purples, bronze and earth tones all do the job quite nicely. When you choose a brighter hue, consider a more subtle smoky eye as seen here on Katherine. Less is always more. Make sure to apply the color along the upper and lower lashline and blend into the crease using a sweeping motion with your brush.

Additional Steps:

Now that you've accomplished your sultry, smoky eyes, it's time to tackle the rest of your face. A smoky eye is obviously going to draw all of the attention to your eyes, which is exactly what you want. 

1. Let's keep the rest of your face sheer with a glo.minerals Sheer Tint. You may apply this with your fingers, but we prefer the glo.minerals foundation brush to keep it sheer and even. The glo.minerals Sheer Tint will give you ample coverage without feeling or looking heavy, and present a flawless finish. 
 

2. One must-have for any look, but especially great after you've darkened your eye area, is the glo.minerals Brightener Highlight Concealer Just apply a small dab under both eyes and blend into the nose area and under the eye. This will create a beautiful contrast and help open the eyes up a little more. 
 

3. Use a subtle blush like glo.minerals sweet or sheer petal or the sunkiss Bronze to warm up your cheek area. Don't be afraid to use both a bronzer and blush, but go easy! 
 

4. Just for fun, brush the glo.minerals Shimmer Brick in gleam across both cheeks for a shimmery finish. 
 

5. The big finale is a lip gloss in a light pink, like glo.minerals Liquid Lips in pink ginger, or Gloss in blushing. Another option would be a subtle sparkle like glo.minerals Gloss in star struck. Blush and lip colors will depend on your skin tone and your personal preference. Just have fun and make your number one goal to feel comfortable with your new red carpet look!
 

Sultry Eye Options:

For an even more dramatic eye, apply glo.minerals Liquid Eyeliner (instead of using a pencil) right along the top lash line, making it slightly thicker at the outside end of the eye. Proceed with smudging the line with eye shadow and applying to lower lash line with the smudge brush, just like when you would use the pencil for lining. You may also want to (carefully) line the inner rim of the eye with the glo.minerals Precision Eye Pencil in black.

For anyone wishing to go the extra beauty mile, you can add a few individual false lashes on the outside corners of each eye and finish with two generous coats of Volumizing Mascara in black.

 



What not to do:

This smoky eye thing may take some practice, but here are a few tips on what not to do that will be helpful for you. 
 

smoky eye don't

1. To avoid the raccoon look, make sure that you only apply eye shadow onto the eyelid and blend into the crease of eye so that the color is slightly above the crease. Do not apply a dark color into the corner of eye and high above the crease. Instead use a lighter shade and blend with the darker color for a more polished look.

2. Avoid heavy thick eyeliner around the entire eye. Instead line the eyes so that the outer part of the eye is thickest and becomes more tapered as you get closer to the inner corner of eye.



smoky eye

Remember, even Hollywood makeup artists have messed this up (check out Hayden and Sharon), so don't be discouraged! Start with a light application of the darker colors. You can always add more layers of color to get your desired level of "smokiness".

Just keep practicing and also remember, a smoky eye doesn't always have to be black or gray. It can be brown, blue, maroon, green or many other colors – it’s completely up to you. Have fun and knock 'em dead, beautiful!

  • Benzoyl Peroxide is one of the most aggressive and effective ingredients in treating acne. Benzoyl Peroxide should be used in times of flare-up, but then discontinued during the maintenance stage.
  • Salicylic Acid is aggressive at penetrating through the follicle to combat the source of acne and kill p. acne bacteria.
  • Zinc and sulphur are anti-inflammatories that boost the immune system and accelerate wound healing.
  • And of course Retinol, the ingredient with the longest track record at increasing cell turnover and regulating the skin.

Q: What products should I use and in what order?

A: Because there are different types and stages of acne the product use will vary. Younger, oilier skin types will need to be more aggressive and use the treatment products more frequently. A mature skin that is dry, but experiencing breakouts will spot treat the breakouts and use the Clear Collection less often.


Q: Can I switch back to my regular routine if my acne clears up?

A: Breakouts have a lifespan of 2-4 weeks. The start of a regimen will treat existing, superficial lesions then move into preventing breakouts. A continued program will address the root of the problem and make the corrections before they are visual on the skin. Stick with your program for at least 8 weeks to see true results. Once the breakout is healed your regular skin care program may be used again along with a maintenance program to prevent future breakouts.

 

Q: Will glo therapeutics acne products be gentle on my aging skin?

A: Yes! Clear Collection can be mild and gentle enough for adult skin. The frequency of product use determines the strength of the program. For a mild performance, use the products less often. For instance instead of using the Clear Complexion Pads twice a day, use once daily or even every other day. By customizing the use, the products will perform at different levels.

 

Q: Can I use glo therapeutics acne products on other areas of my body?

A: Yes! Clear Collection products work on all body parts, and perform especially well on backs and arms.

 

Q: How quickly should I expect to see results?

A: It depends on the type of breakout and how severe. As stated above, a typical breakout lasts 2-4 weeks. During the initial weeks of a breakout, symptoms are not visible on the skin. They are forming in the lower layers and eventually work their way to the surface of the skin. The minimum program needs 6-8 weeks to affect breakouts. Anything shorter than that is strictly superficial and will not ensure a lasting outcome.

 

Q: I don't have sever acnes. Are these products for me?

A: Just use as a spot treatment when necessary. If breakouts occur during the menstrual cycle, start to use the Clear Collection products 1 week prior to prevent breakouts and continue through the healing stages of the breakout.

 

Q: Are these products tested on animals?

A: No, only humans test our products!

 

Q: I've heard that natural products are the way to go - are the chemicals in these products safe?

A: "Chemical" is an interesting word, as all ingredients can be considered chemicals. We refer to these ingredients as actives. These actives are safe to use when the directions are followed. Overuse of any product can have a negative effect. Acne is a skin disease and majority of breakouts need to be treated aggressively. Acne may lead to depression and lowered self esteem, so effective products that will treat the skin are the top priority. The shorter the lifespan of the breakouts, the happier you'll be!

 

Q: Is this product line suitable for sensitive skin?

A: Sensitive skin types can use the product in moderation. Less will be better, but still provide results. The Clear Refining Mask is the ideal product for sensitive skin with breakouts because it contains a higher, more comfortable pH and many anti-inflammatory ingredients. It cools the skin on contact, resulting in a refreshed and soothed complexion.

 

Q: I travel a lot, are glo therapeutics products suitable for use on-the-go?

A: Of course! Breakouts can be the worst during travel so most definitely have your emergency breakout kit packed!

 

Q: Do the Clear Skin products effectively remove blackheads?

A: The Clear Collection line is effective in treating all breakouts including blackheads. A skin maintenance program would also be recommended to keep blackheads away and should be discussed with your esthetician or dermatologist.

 

Q: Can anyone use the Clear Skin products? Do skin tone, age or gender affect the results?

A: Anyone with mild to severe breakouts, dry to oily types, sensitive to thick skin can all use the Clear Collection line. The frequency of use will vary when treating different skin types and ages. A younger, oilier skin type will need to use the products more frequently than someone who gets random breakouts.
