Hailed as one of skincare’s all-time superheroes with most dermatologists wielding it as their top skincare tool (- along with SPF, of course), retinol is one of the most effective ingredients in the modern skincare kit. It helps accelerate skin cell turnover, reduce inflammation, diminish hyperpigmentation, and stimulate collagen production, promoting smoother, firmer, brighter skin. In short, it’s one of the best ingredients to use in all anti-aging skincare rituals.
For all the magic and sparkle of the season, winter also brings with it some less glamorous side effects for our skin. The drop in humidity, prolonged exposure to indoor heat, and freezing outdoor temperatures all combine to make this the season that’s hardest on our skin. Think parched, itchy, flaky, dry skin that settles in for the long haul. And, while our instincts are to just double-down on heavy-duty formulas and oils, there’s actually much more to winter skincare than that. Reassessing our routines, switching up our solutions, and changing our habits can go a long way to keeping skin soothed and complexions comfortable this frosty season.
Glowing skin is always in. And, while we try to make the best of our natural radiance with elevated skincare, most of us need a little something extra to hit those high points and give our complexions that oh-so coveted lit-from-within effect. Faking it ’til we make it, highlighters have been an absolute essential in most beauty kits for some time now, served up in an array of deliciously different finishes and luminosities.
When developing a skincare routine, it is important to know your skin type and to pick products that are right for your skin. This will ensure that your products are working for you, and will not make any of your concerns worse. Whether your skin is oily, normal or dry you want to ensure that you have the perfect nighttime skincare routine.

We’re huge proponents of wearing SPF every single day, rain or shine, no matter what. We’ve received a lot of questions lately asking if this includes wearing sunscreen indoors, whether recent events mean you’ve transitioned to working from home or you’re simply enjoying a staycation from the comfort of your living room.
The benefits of professional skincare treatments are undeniable. Whether clients have serious skin concerns left untreated by over the counter products or simply want to ensure they’re meeting all of their skincare goals, adding in regular facials or other skincare treatments can contribute to amazing transformations.

Most often, cost and accessibility are the two main reasons why clients do not/ cannot seek professional assistance. We at Glo want to change that, which is why we’ve created Hydra-Bright Pro 5 Liquid Exfoliant, an at-home peel, perfect for anyone who wants to take their skincare results to the next level from the comfort of their own bathroom.

If you don’t know by now, Glo LOVES multi-taskers. And who wouldn’t? They’re perfect for anyone on the go who wants to look their best in the least amount of time as possible. We’re always in favor of when one product can serve multiple purposes. With that in mind, we wanted to create one product that would do it all: all over face foundation coverage, conceal and correct blemishes or under eye circles, contour to add warmth, depth and dimension and highlight to feature the high points of the face. Sounds like a unicorn of a product, right? Nope. It’s our new HD Mineral Foundation Stick.
The more popular something becomes, the more people try to cheapen or 'dupe' it. The same goes for skincare. We’ve seen a rise in both interest and general knowledge of skincare routines, formulas and products, yet we continue to see clients who insist on creating DIY formulas for skin concerns that could easily be remedied with the right over the counter product. You may think that making your own products is the answer, but we’re here to (gently) remind you that it’s not. Though you’ll never catch us recommending lemon, honey and baking soda as a facial cleanser/mask, there is one frequently promoted ingredient that receives love from both professionals and DIYers alike, and that's Witch Hazel.
