Meet Amanda: glo National Educator

Amanda von dem Hagen glo educator

For those of you who have attended a glo therapeutics workshop recently you’ve already had the pleasure of meeting the newest member of the glo Education Team - Amanda von dem Hagen. Amanda first came to glo a little over two years ago as a licensed esthetician with over eight years of experience as well as a BS in Business Marketing. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable about the glo therapeutics line, she is a talented makeup artist and glo minerals connoisseur. To help you get to know Amanda we asked her to answer a few questions about her experience, glo workshops and her go-to beauty products.

glo: What do you love about working in the beauty and skincare industry?

Amanda: I love that the beauty and skincare industry is constantly changing.  It is impossible to know everything about it, so I just keep exploring, experimenting, and educating myself.  I also love that a good skincare routine and makeup application can improve your confidence.

glo: As a licensed esthetician, what inspired you to pursue a career in the beauty and skincare industry?

Amanda: As soon as I received my first facial at the age of 14, I knew I was destined for a career in the industry.  I fell in love with makeup and skincare and I know that it's a love that lasts.

glo: What can someone attending a glo workshop expect?

Amanda: Excitement!  A glo workshop not only covers our products and applications but we also share valuable information on customization and retailing.  You will leave the workshop ready to use the products on your clients and be able to retail them to everyone that walks through your door!

glo: You know all of the ins-and-outs of glo's extensive line. What are some of your favorite products and why?

Cyto-luxe Cleanser - It cleanses without drying out your skin AND has a plant stem cell that reduces wrinkles.  What could be better?

Renew Serum - The Magician.  I apply this at night when I see a clogged pore becoming inflamed and when I wake up in the morning, it's gone.

Cyto-luxe Hydration + - With Dermatein HyA Mini, this hydrator penetrates further into the skin than a normal hyaluronic acid so your skin is not only moisturized, it's plumped.  

Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+ - I wear this product daily either alone or under one of our foundations.  It gives me the sun protection I desire with a great amount of coverage!

Luxe Liquid Foundation SPF 15 -  You're basically wearing diamonds, and diamonds are a girls best friend.  

Lash Thickener & Conditioner - I use this product before mascara application to condition the lashes. It adds volume and length to your lashes so the mascara looks even better than when applied alone.

Face Primer - It feels amazing and creates the perfect canvas for my foundation.

Revive Hydration Mist - Ask me how many I own... 4.  One for my desk, makeup vanity, car and purse.

glo: What's the best beauty advice you were ever given?

Amanda: SPF SPF SPF!  The sun is one external cause of aging that you can fight! And to focus on enhancing features, not covering up flaws.

We are so excited to have such a bright and talented esthetician on our Education Team! Want to meet Amanda in person? Sign up for a workshop today!

Ingredient Spotlight: Brestine

When we introduced you to our Cyto-luxe Eye Serum this past fall we also introduced you to a new age-fighting ingredient: Brestine. Also known as plankton extract, this marine-derived polymer has the ability to fill in the furrows of the skin and smooth small wrinkles within 15 minutes of application! When tested in vivo, the results of applying Brestine to crow’s feet and wrinkles were powerful and subjects showed lasting benefits for 6 hours after a single application*. We truly believe in the transformative properties of this beneficial ingredient and are excited to add it to our inventory of innovative ingredients. Contact your local glo therapeutics retailer to try Cyto-luxe Eye Serum or shop here.

Ingredient Spotlight: Brestine

*Concentration of Brestine in Cyto-luxe Eye Serum exceeds minimum inclusion to achieve dramatic results shown in photo.

Product Highlight: Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub

Is it just us or are pumpkins really having a moment? This fall season more than ever it seems like everywhere you turn there is pumpkin flavored something hitting the shelves. But did you know that the antioxidants found in pumpkin help increase skin’s moisture absorption and elasticity? That’s why glo therapeutics’ beloved Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub is a top selling product all year long!

Pumpkin is an exceptionally powerful exfoliant because it’s naturally rich in antioxidant bioflavonoids and Vitamin A which assist in breaking down dead and irregular cellular buildup. As a gentle exfoliant, Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub helps removes dead skin cell buildup while stimulating cell regeneration to help your skin feel rejuvenated and smooth. Unlike other scrubs, Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub  is packed with small granules and enzymes that don’t stress or irritate the skin and  the scent is absolutely delightful!

“This is hands down the best exfoliator I've used. It works magic without harming your skin.The smell is also wonderful, just like a pumpkin pie!” - Sara, online review
