Ingredient Spotlight: Sweet Iris


When looking for an anti-aging skincare system you might focus on products that claim to firm sagging skin, regenerate skin cell tissue or soften fine lines and wrinkles. But what if we told you that we found an ingredient that does all three and that it can be found in our all-new Cyto-luxe Hydration + and Cyto-luxe Vitamin C+? It might sound too good to be true but Sweet Iris is special because it acts on both the epidermis and dermis.

In the epidermis, it regenerates skin by increasing the differentiation of cells to make skin act younger. In the dermis, it stimulates the synthesis of extracellular matrix components while limiting the action of the enzymes that destroy them. As a result, the two layers become firmer and denser. In addition, Sweet Iris is an effective moisture regulator that binds moisture to the skin which contributes to restoring skin’s natural suppleness.

In a clinical study, 80% of women declared that their wrinkles seem to have decreased after 28 days of treatment. Not only did Sweet Iris decrease the total surface area of wrinkles by 28%, but it decreased the number of wrinkles by 19% and the length of wrinkles by 26% which is why we are excited to introduce this powerful ingredient to our Cyto-luxe line.

For best results apply Cyto-luxe Vitamin C+ to face and neck in the morning after cleansing and toning. Follow with Cyto-luxe Hydration+ and your favorite glo therapeutics moisturizer.

*Concentration of Sweet Iris in Cyto-luxe Vitamin C+ and Cyto-luxe Hydration + exceeds minimum inclusion to achieve results.

glo How-To: A Day Look Featuring the Alloy Eyes Collection

Alloy Eyes Collection

If we were to pick one word to describe the Alloy Eyes Collection it would be versatile. The palette is the perfect mix of matte & shimmer, warm & cool tones, and neutrals & metallics. The eight shades are exclusive to the kit and can be mixed and matched to create countless looks.

To showcase the Alloy Eye Collection and its versatility our National Makeup Artist, Janeena, created two completely different looks: an everyday, neutral look and a dramatic evening look. Today we are showcasing the daytime look which can be completed in four simple steps.

Step 1: After applying Lid Primer, apply universe to lid using the Eye Definer Brush.
Step 2: Using the Crease Brush, blend cappuccino in the crease.
Step 3: Smudge cappuccino into the lower lash line using the Smudge Brush.
Step 4: Apply buff to the inner corner of the eye as a subtle highlight using the Mini Crease Brush.

glo How-To: Weather Proof Your Skincare Routine

Winter Skincare Routine

The first snow of the season is falling at the glo headquarters in Denver and even though it sure is pretty we know that along with snow comes dry, dull and flaky skin. Luckily we have a knowledgable education team to help us prepare our skin for winter’s harsh side effects. Our glo Educator, Amanda, shares her favorite products to help you weatherproof your skincare routine and prevent dehydrated, flakey and dull skin this season.

Amanda’s Weatherproof Skincare Tips:

During drier months our skin needs an extra boost of hydration on top of our normal moisturizer so I love to add in a product that is high in hyaluronic acid. Cyto-luxe Hydration + is your best bet for getting the most amount of hyaluronic acid to improve water content for lasting moisture.

Give your skin some R+R with an extra dose of protection from the elements with Peptide + Defense. Throughout the summer, your skin is damaged from the sun and sand so Fall is the ideal time to rebuild it from the inside out.

We all know how the weather can negatively affects our hands and feet in the winter. Repair Cream provides needed relief from dry, chapped and cracked hands or feet by  moisturizing your skin and delivering antioxidants to protect it from further damage. We recommend keeping one at your desk and  in your car!

This amazing product has two main benefits: it will volumize your lips over time and keep them intensely moisturized. Plus, I love the way Lip Revival tastes!

I recommend using Barrier Balm on extremely dry, rough, cracked skin before you go to sleep.  I use it on my elbows, knuckles, and neck when they are really dry and when I wake up in the morning, my skin is moisturized and protected.

An ingredient in the Cyto-luxe Eye Cream, Antarcticine, prevents dryness and protects against extreme cold. This will work extra hard to keep the skin around your eyes hydrated and protected throughout the upcoming colder weather.
For those of you who use one of our cleansers with Hydroxy Acids/BP (all but Conditioning Milk Cleanser), I would recommend using the Cyto-luxe Cleanser once per day during the fall/winter. Pentavitin, a water-binding emollient found in Cyto-luxe Cleanser will offer long lasting moisture.

Eye Shadow Election: Results are In!

In case you missed it, here are the winning shade names from last week’s Eye Shadow Election. These new Eye Shadow shades will be available in 2015. Thank you for voting!

Janeena's Fall Favorites

As the weather changes it’s always fun to try the new trends and colors (like this gorgeous metallic smoky eye!) but dealing with the skin issues that arise from changing temperatures isn’t quite as fun. Colder weather tends to cause our skin to dry out which can lead to flaky, uneven and dull skin. “I like to look concealed, highlighted,and moisturized during the fall season” says our Nation Makeup Artist, Janeena. Here are her tips for staying beautiful this fall.

1) Highlight and Brighten
Since our skin can tend to look a little dull when the summer season ends I keep Luxe Liquid Bright Concealers in sunburst and brighten within arms reach! Take a look at this post for detailed instructions on how to use Luxe Liquid Bright Concealers.

2) Add Extra Moisture
To stay moisturized I like to add a small amount of glo therapeutics moisturizer to my liquid foundation. My favorite trick is adding a drop of Face Essence to my Protective Liquid Foundation - Satin II. It keeps my skin looking healthy and refreshed!

3) Pick Creams Over Powders:
I love a good cream-based pop of color on my cheeks for dryer seasons like fall. Cream Blush in fig adds that perfect amount of warmth and dewy-ness to the apples of my cheeks without looking too overdone.

Winter Ray Protection

Winter Sun Protection

We all know that skin cancer is a serious problem but this fact really puts it in perspective: One person in the United States dies from melanoma every hour*. Because of this staggering statistic we are dedicated to developing quality products that offer protection from the sun’s damaging rays. We truly believe that developing safe sun habits is an essential part of everyone’s daily beauty routine even in the winter.

glo offers several SPF options but one of our favorites for the winter months is our Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+. Not only does this lightweight, oil-free moisturizer provide UVA/UVB protection but it adds a gorgeous hint of color. Available in fair, light, medium and dark this tinted moisturizer is the BB cream you’ve been looking for. We recommend applying liberally at least 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. It’s the perfect solution for winter sun protection and can be worn under all glo foundations for gorgeous, moisturized and protected skin.
