Building Your Basic Skincare Regimen

To get the most out of your glo products, you need to know the ins and outs of your skin. Your basic skincare regimen should be built around your skin’s essential needs. Our dermatologists are here on hand to help you discover the nuances of your individual skin type and which products are most suitable for you.

Determine Your Skin Type

First, things first, to design your ideal skincare regimen, you will need to determine your skin type. The easiest way to do so is to make note of when your skin becomes shiny during the day.

  • If it’s shiny all day then you have oily skin.
  • If it tends to get shine around midday in your t-zone (forehead, nose, chin) then you have combination skin.
  • If it never gets oily, but you do feel a tightness or experience flaking then you have dry skin.
  • If you find that your skin is prone to redness and is easily irritated then you have sensitive skin. Although, as skin sensitivity isn’t related to oil production, you can have oily or dry skin in combination with sensitive skin.

Skincare Regimen for Oily Skin

Oily Skincare Regimen

People with oily skin are more prone to visibly large pores and breakouts as the sebaceous glands overproduce oil, leading to a shiny complexion and clogged pores. So the goal of your skincare routine should be to regulate and purify the skin with oil-controlling agents.

What we recommend:

Skincare Regimen for Combination Skin

Combination Skincare Regimen

Typically, those with combination skin suffer from skin that feels dehydrated and tight at times (perhaps immediately after washing your face) but then becomes oily midday in the t-zone. Combination skin may feel dry at times but it still produces oil resulting in an oily t-zone.

The aim of your daily routine is to balance your skin with light to medium weight formulas hydrate and restore the skin’s water content without triggering an excess of oil production.

Skincare Regimen for Dry Skin

Dry Skincare Regimen

Dry skin often feels tight and flaky. While pores are likely to be smaller, fine lines tend to be more prominent. Dry skin needs products that are emollient and conditioning to help smooth, soften and revive the complexion.

What we recommend:

Skincare Regimen for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skincare Regimen

Sensitive skin conditions need soothing products with gentle ingredients and anti-inflammatories. Even if you don’t usually suffer from sensitive skin, you can temporarily experience it because of sudden weather changes or after a professional treatment. Choose products to balance and hydrate skin without exacerbating the condition.
