New glotherapeutics Vitamin C: Rave Review!

Dermatology Associates out of San Antonio, TX, recently tried and reviewed products in our new glotherapeutics Vitamin C and Moisturizers collections. The consensus -

"We are in love with this new line."

Here is what Sylvia and the rest of the dermatology practice thought after one week of use:

"I have very sensitive, rosacea-prone skin. Using the Ultra 15% Vitamin C there was no stinging or irritation, which is usually the case anytime I use Vitamin C serums. I also felt an immediate tightening of my skin after applying the Ultra 15%.

I paired the Ultra 15% with the B5 Hydration. It is fantastic! I saw almost immediate improvement in my fine lines and my skin just looked smoother overall. In addition to having rosacea-prone skin, it is also on the oily side, and this product really helped to mattify and equalize the oil content in my skin. I love that it is unscented as well.

As an aesthetician, I've also noticed that, unlike other Vitamin C serums, the glotherapeutics Vitamin C products are not turning my hands yellow. I'm sure other aestheticians who come in contact with product as much as I do will appreciate this. Overall, this new line tops any other Vitamin C products we have ever tried. We are in love with this new line."

Ellen Leyva for ABC7 Eyewitness News. Los Angles Makeover!



On Monday, our SoCal gloProfessional Sales Consultant Samrah Johnson did a glominerals makeover on ABC7 anchor in Los Angeles, Ellen Leyva. Here is what Ellen had to say about the overall experience:


"I’m actually on the set during the news. Samrah was helpful and informative! I really like how she did my makeup and I’m wearing it on the air right now. She wrote down the colors she used on me and gave me some great tips!...I really loved your products, so thank you again!"


So what did she do? Follow along below to find out!


Samrah began the makeover with our wonderful collection of HD ready foundations - Ellen used gloPressed base in golden medium and golden dark gloProtective liquid foundation in the Satin II formulation, plus natural gloConcealer - undereye for extra coverage.




To play up her eyes, gloBrow powder in brown, gloPrecision eye pencil in black, and our gloSmoky eye kit were used.


For cheeks, a pop of gloBlush in papaya warmed her skin tone perfectly!


To finish the look and give her a polished appearance on-camera, Samrah filled in Ellen's lips with redwood gloPrecision lip pencil, and topped it with gloGloss in lily.
A spritz of gloMoist hydration mist softened the minerals and set her makeup for the rest of the day!

Product In-Depth: The Science of Vitamin C

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. So what can you do to repair skin, and protect it from future damage?




Advancements and discoveries in modern skincare research has come up with 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 drinking a glass of O.J. 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 benefits, 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.

Be sure to try one of our new Vitamin C serums by glotherapeutics to help your skin get the best source of Vitamin C for anti-aging benefits - available this fall from glotherapeutics on gloskincare.com!

Exciting New Vitamin C products from glotherapeutics

glotherapeutics launches vitamin c serums collection to revitalize and protect skin: coming fall 2010!

glōtherapeutics, the skincare collection known for breakthrough-ingredients, high performance formulations, and a signature systematic approach to skincare, introduces an all new line of scientifically-proven Vitamin C serums to revitalize damaged skin and visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles.


This revolutionary new collection offers the most effective form of Vitamin C available, L-Ascorbic Acid, with breakthrough peptides to repair, strengthen, and protect skin cells resulting in a healthy, youthful-looking complexion.

Applying glōtherapeutics Vitamin C serums has enormous skin-rejuvenating and protecting benefits. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C:
  • finds and destroys reactive oxidizing agents and other free radicals
  • provides important protection against UV radiation damage
  • improves skin elasticity
  • decreases the appearance wrinkles by stimulating collagen production
  • reduces redness
  • promotes healing
  • suppresses pigmentation
The new Vitamin C serums are available in 7.5% Vitamin C Eye Gel, 10% Vitamin C, 15% Vitamin C, and Ultra 15% Vitamin C. Each serum contains Zinc Sulfate and L-Tyrosine. Zinc Sulfate is antibacterial and boosts the immune system at the cellular level, increases T-cells, accelerates the healing of wounds, and is essential for cell growth. Zinc is also partially responsible for collagenase, enzymes that break peptide bonds in aged collagen fibers so new collagen can be created. L-Tyrosine is one of the 20 amino acids used by cells to synthesize proteins. When combined with L-ascorbic acid, it encourages fibroblast activity to increase collagen production.

Other active ingredients in the glōtherapeutics Vitamin C serums include the cutting edge peptides of Inyline, Snap-8, Preventhelia and Longevicell which reduces the depth of wrinkles and protect against UV radiation as well as extracts that reinforce the skins elasticity.

Stay tuned to our beauty blog for additional in-depth information on these cutting-edge ingredients.

Tricks of the Trade Photo-Ready Face

Whip up a perfect summer glo with this fresh-faced tip! While glominerals pressed base is one of our most popular base products due to its easy application, don't overlook the gorgeous finish that a our liquid foundation can deliver. If you are like me and shy away from liquid foundation because you're afraid it might be too heavy, try this technique and you'll be amazed at the light-as-a-feather look and feel that comes with the perfect application!

GATHER
• gloProtective liquid foundation - Satin II
• gloMoist hydration mist (Use two pumps)
• glominerals texture brush
• Small glass bowl for mixing


WHIP
Using the texture brush, mix gloProtective liquid foundation with 2 pumps of glōMoist hydration mist in the glass bowl.

APPLY
Using the texture brush, give a light airbrushed application of the mixture. The whipped gloProtective liquid foundation - Satin II and gloMoist hydration mixture goes on like silk and offers a lovely satin, photo-ready finish!

MIX IT UP

Colorado Sidebar: Climbing 14ers

As a transplant from the state of Ohio, I live in awe of the beautiful mountains surrounding us here at glo headquarters in Denver, CO every day. If you visit or move to Colorado and enjoy hiking, bagging a 14-er is almost a right of passage. A few weekends ago, I finally got to conquer MY first 14-er.

For those not familiar with the term, a "14-er" is a mountain exceeding 14,000 feet. Mount Bierstadt is one of Colorado’s most popular, and easiest fourteeners. Along with Mount Evans, Bierstadt is the closest 14'er to Denver. It’s not much more than an hour outside of Denver and the easiest route only requires a 3.25 mile, 2,391 foot ascent up a class 1 trail to reach the summit.

I have to say it was am absolutely gorgeous sunny day and with being at such a high altitude, sunscreen like glotherapeutics daily defense SPF 30+ was an absolute must. Additionally, I am not one to leave the house completely bare-faced, even when summiting a mountaintop! The recently launched glominerals water resistant mascara stayed on my lashes all day long, even during the middle of the hot afternoon. I would highly recommend this mascara to anyone, especially the outdoor/active types.

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, so I'll let the pictures speak the rest of the experience for themselves ...

Just starting to climb and the parking lot is getting pretty small.


The final ascent.


We made it!

Denver, CO (July, 2010) - glotherapeutics, the skincare collection known for breakthrough-ingredients, high-performance formulations, and a signature systematic approach to skincare introduces five new products to moisturize and restore skin.

For an extra dose of moisture, B5 Hydration Serum restores skin’s suppleness through a synergistic balance of nourishment and hydration. Keeping skin moisturized throughout the day, sodium hylauronate delivers and maintains water hydration to protect against free radical damage caused by environmental aggressors while pro-vitamin B5 increases the skin’s hyaluronic acid content and assists in stabilizing the moisture content.

Leaving the eye area smooth and revitalized, the Vital Eye Cream contains de-puffing eyeliss to reduces dark circles under eyes, anti-inflammatory evening primrose oil to prevents dehydration, antioxidant and antiseptic rich chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract to increase hydration and skin elasticity.

To replenish and repair skin, Vita E Essential Cream, a flavonoid-rich antioxidant cream leaves skin plump and reduces the appearance of broken capillaries with strengthening hesperidin methyl chalcone. Preventative rutin stops collagen destruction; anti-oxidant enriched vitamin E/tocopheryl acetate boosts the immune system; and anti-inflammatory rose hip seed oil aids in cell protection while improving the skin’s elasticity.

Moisture Rich Cream douses skin with nutrients to encourage restoration and repair skin to a flawless dewy complexion. A combination of anti-oxidant rich ingredients nourish while silybum marianu (milk thistle) extract reduces the effect of toxins and prevents oxidative damage to DNA caused by UV radiation while evening primrose moisturizes dry, dehydrated and extra fragile skin commonly associated with menopausal and Eczema prone symptoms.

Blended with botanicals and essential hydrators, Oil Free Moisturizer lightly moisturizes and balance oily skin. Hydrating sodium hyaluronate protects against free radical damage, protecting algae extract enhances skin’s radiance, and elastin malachite extract increases the amount of collagen leaving your skin balanced.

The products, launching fall 2010, range from $35.00 to $50.00 and are available at salons and spas nationwide or gloskincare.com.
