Product Spotlight: Cyto-luxe Serum

Cyto-luxe Serum.jpg
Wrinkles can be sneaky. We all know that they are a completely natural part of the aging process and yet they have a tendency to creep up on us before we’re ready. With the right set of products you can not only smooth the appearance of existing wrinkles and expression lines but you can target wrinkle prone areas ahead of time with preventative care.
The glo therapeutics Cyto-luxe collection was designed to resolve the primary causes of skin aging by harnessing the power of phytostem technology. The Cyto-luxe Serum in particular works to lift, support, and smooth wrinkled skin while also protecting the skin from further degradation.

This powerful serum contains ingredients like SYN® -AKE (a tripeptide that mimics the effects of a peptide found in snake venom) which inhibits muscle contractions providing an anti-wrinkle effect and PhytoStem Gardenia which helps stimulate collagen production to improve skin tone and elasticity for a more youthful complexion. For best results we recommend applying to skin after cleansing and toning in the morning and/or evening and then following with Cyto-luxe Face Cream.

glo How-To: Summer Trio Look

glo How-To: Summer Trio Look

Memorial weekend is quickly approaching, marking the real beginning of summer.  We are looking forward to kicking off the season with style. Summer-time beauty is all about hassle-free application, natural and luminescent colors and soft, dewy textures. The Summer Trio Collection contains everything you need to create effortless summer looks like the one pictured above.

To create this look our National Makeup Artist, Janeena, first applied Perfecting Powder over her everyday foundation choice (Luxe Liquid Foundation in brulee) to help keep unwanted oiliness to a minimum and to add all-day staying power- both important during hot, humid summer days.

Next, Janeena applied Blush in sweet with the Blush Brush to the apples of her cheeks and pulled the color up along her cheekbones to create a luminous glo.  

To create a soft, natural smoky eye, Janeena applied the lightest shade from the Eye Shadow Trio in coffee to her entire lid and pulled the color up to her brow bone. She then used the darkest shade and blended the color into her crease and the outer corner of her lid for a light smoky effect. Next, she used the middle shade and applied it to her lid, blending it into the darker color.

The last step was to add a pop of pretty pink Gloss to her lips. Gloss in pink ginger is the perfect shade for summer and is a free gift with the collection!

Product Spotlight: Ultra 15% Vitamin C Serum

Ultra 15% Vitamin C Serum

With tightening, brightening, and protecting properties, Ultra 15% Vitamin C can visibly transform your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! The cutting-edge blend of peptides and antioxidants found inside Ultra 15% Vitamin C works to repair and strengthen skin cells. In fact, with the use of one of the serum’s key ingredients, Inyline, participants in a clinical study found a 14.9% decrease in wrinkle depth after only 28 days.

For best results, we recommend applying Ultra 15% Vitamin C in the morning on dry, clean skin to visibly transform your skin's clarity while protecting your skin against free radical damage. Take a deeper look at the powerful ingredients inside and read a review from a fan:

A Mediterranean shrub rich in oligogalacturonans. An effective cell regenerator that inhibits the glycation of collagen and limits the appearance of aging.

Zinc Sulfate
Zinc boosts the immune system at the cellular level, increases T-cells, is antibacterial, accelerates healing of wounds and is essential for cell growth. Zinc is also partially responsible for collagenase, a process of removing old stiffened collagen fibers so new collagen can be created.

Ascorbic Acid
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps destroy reactive oxidizing agents and other free radicals. Because of this ability, it provides important protection against damage induced by UV radiation. Vitamin C also improves skin elasticity, decreases wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis, reduces erythema, promotes wound healing and suppresses cutaneous pigmentation.

Zinc Sulfate
Zinc boosts the immune system at the cellular level, increases T-cells, is antibacterial, accelerates healing of wounds and is essential for cell growth. Zinc also aids collagenase in the process of removing old stiffened collagen fibers so new collagen can be created.

L-tyrosine is one of the 20 amino acids that are used by cells to synthesize proteins. When combined with L-ascorbic acid, it will encourage fibroblast activity to increase collagen production.

Product Spotlight: Neck Firming Serum


Do you neglect your neck? Forgetting to care for your neck the same way you care for your face is a serious beauty faux pas! Not only does the skin around your neck naturally contain less collagen, it’s also often overexposed to environmental conditions such as harmful UV rays and wind. Add the fact that you are constantly moving your neck throughout the day (nodding, turning, stretching) and it’s no wonder the skin around your neck loses vitality with age at a faster rate than your face! It’s time to add Neck Firming Serum to your daily routine.

Neck Firming Serum promotes the appearance of a tighter, firmer and smoother neck. With its innovative ingredients this serum works to lift, brighten and prevent aging resulting in a more youthful-looking neck! Pair Neck Firming Serum with Skin Firming Cream for a powerful combination of moisturizing ingredients to help keep the neck area hydrated while also preventing crepiness.
