glo How-To: Shine Free Skin

For skin that’s prone to oil and shine, warmer weather can be a very scary time! The skin’s natural oil production process can sometimes make applying makeup, and keeping it on, difficult. Have no fear oil-prone ladies - glo minerals and glo therapeutics have options to help curb that oil and keep unwanted shine to a minimum!


A New Matte
We have entered a new frontier with new Loose Matte Finishing Powder from glo minerals! This new loose formula is a rice and silica based powder which means it’s ultra-fine and long lasting.  It instantly absorbs oil, leaving the skin shine free! Loose Matte Finishing Powder is specifically formulated for normal to combination skin types and can be worn alone or on top of a foundation and primer for extra long wearability. The best part about this setting powder? It is High Definition quality (meaning it doesn’t flash back in photos) and won’t deposit any color to the skin, making it suitable for all skin tones.


*Tip: Try using this fluffy powder under the eyes before creating a smoky eye to prevent fallout. Try blotting some on top of lipstick for a long- lasting matte lipcolor or use to blend out a face with too much blush!


Keep It Protected
If you are prone to shine, it’s important to keep you skin protected with SPF without clogging your pores. Using a non comedogenic, oil free SPF will help protect the skin while allowing the skin to breathe. glo therapeutics Oil Free SPF 40+ is a broad spectrum sun protectant with great antioxidants and hydrators to nourish and protect normal to oily skin.


Remember to Hydrate!
Even oily skin can be dehydrated which causes the body to become confused and create more sebum or oil. glo therapeutics Oil Control Emulsion contains D-Cholic Acid which is a fantastic ingredient to help reduce the production of sebum. This product is super lightweight and is the perfect “moisturizer/hydrator” for normal to oily skin!


Absorb Excess Oil
By using a great calming and healing mask, like the glo therapeutics Refining Mask, you can reduce excess oil production! This clay mask helps boost the overall health of your skin with great oil control and bacteria killing ingredients like zinc, sulfur and tea tree extract. Apply the mask 2-3 times per week to help refine pores and control unwanted shine.


Wear Makeup That Looks Like Your Skin… But Better
As a top-selling and award-winning foundation, glo minerals Pressed Base is a buildable sheer- to full coverage foundation with an exclusive vitamin and antioxidant blend of Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea extract. In addition, Pressed Base has anti-inflammatory properties and contains an ingredient called Boron Nitride which serves as an oil- control agent.


Keep It Perfect
Perfecting Powder is clay based pressed powder that you can apply directly after makeup application to combat shine and give your skin a beautiful matte finish . Try using the Retractable Ultra Brush to get all of the small areas around the face.
*TIP: Perfecting Powder is also a great tool for setting eyeliner!
