April is Rosacea Awareness Month


With symptoms ranging from mild redness to severe discoloration, Rosacea is a skin disorder that is estimated to affect over 16 million Americans. Today marks the official start to Rosacea Awareness Month so we will be taking a closer look at this condition in the upcoming weeks. Our goal is to help build awareness, educate and offer manageable treatment solutions by answering common questions about Rosacea and by sharing numerous tips on camouflaging, treating and soothing the symptoms of Rosacea.  

To kick-start this month long Rosacea focus we are highlighting several products that can help soothe the inflammation and redness associated with Rosacea. First, it’s important to start with a gentle cleanser that is cream-based and non-foaming such as Conditioning Milk Cleanser. This soothing cleanser contains moisturizing ingredients like Shea Butter and Safflower Oil to help trap and seal in moisture. It’s important to avoid harsh cleansers that contain exfoliating agents as they can irritate the skin and exacerbate inflammation. We also suggest avoiding abrasive towels or sponges when cleansing the face.

Next, it’s important to look for a moisturizer that contains a high concentration of sun protection. Creating a heavy moisture barrier helps protect the skin from irritants and other potential problems like itching, burning and stinging. SPF is also crucial because prolonged sun exposure is a common trigger for Rosacea flare ups and irritation. glo therapeutics SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer is an excellent solution because it delivers moisturizing ingredients while providing both broad-spectrum UVB and UVA protection.

For those looking to heal and treat Rosacea flare ups we suggest products that help reduce inflammation and hydrate and soothe while protecting the skin from environmental stress and pollution. Apply Healing Gel to problem areas with clean fingers to help heal and treat problem areas. Follow with Peptide +  Defense which is an excellent source of healing ingredients including a powerful blend of peptides and natural protectants.

Product Spotlight: Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

If you are one of the millions of Americans with sensitive skin then you know all too well that certain products or ingredients can cause painful irritation, stinging and inflammation.  With that in mind, we created our all new Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. This non-oily formula has been both allergy and clinically tested to be non-irritating for the delicate eye area. It gently and effectively removes all traces of eye makeup while anti-inflammatory and hydrating actives leave the skin soothed and hydrated.

For best results, saturate a cotton pad with a small amount of the Gentle Eye Makeup Remover and hold over eyelid for a few seconds to loosen makeup. Then gently swipe across eye area to remove makeup. This works well for the lip area, too. Repeat for stubborn, waterproof products.

We love the beauty quip, “Never ask a girl with winged eyeliner why she’s late.” It makes us smile because for most of us attempting to apply liquid liner, the process can be tedious, messy and time-consuming, sometimes resulting in more time spent removing wayward liner than we’d like to admit. If you can relate, then it’s time to try the all new Graphic Liner from glo minerals.

black and black/brown and will add drama and definition to any look. With the convenience of a felt tip pen, the application is smooth, simple and mess-free.

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!

Product Spotlight: Loose Matte Finishing Powder

Erase unwanted shine with the all new Loose Matte Finishing Powder. This translucent, weightless powder absorbs excess oil for long-lasting setting power. Made with rice powder, this matte formula soaks up oil, while smoothing the skin to create a silky, matte finish. Use the glo minerals Fan Brush to apply all over face to set makeup or apply to t-zone midday for immediate oil absorption.

You can also use this loose powder to catch fall out while applying eye shadow by using the glo minerals Eye Blender Brush to tap a healthy amount of powder under your eyes before starting. Once your look is complete, use the fluffy Powder Brush to sweep away the powder. This technique will catch any fallout and prevent smearing.

Product Spotlight: 3-in-1 Color Stick

As the first signs of spring start to bloom we can’t help but gravitate towards fresh color palettes and pretty pastels. The all new 3-in-1 Color Stick in dollface is the perfect blend of pink and peach which makes it a gorgeous, flattering shade for eyes, lips and cheeks. In one easy swipe, this multitasking powerhouse creates a soft, hydrated, peachy glow. You can apply the 3-in-1 Color Stick directly to eyes, cheeks or lips and gently blend with fingers for effortless beauty - perfect for on-the-go application!
