Getting Skin Ready — April 2, 2020

Getting Skin Ready

If you are thinking about a new skin care program, you need to consider how to maximize the benefit of your new products.  Our new ZO line has just the solution.

1) Start with a good cleanser.  Their exfoliating cleanser is great for oily skin, even if it’s acne prone.  For most of the rest of us I recommend their gentle cleanser.

2) Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin that blocks the absorption of products.  ZO Exfoliating Polish is the perfect answer for that.  I use mine 2 to 3 times a week.

3) Finally, everybody needs a toner, and the ZO complexion renewal pads really clean out the pores and get rid of makeup residue.

Take home message:  clean and prepare your skin properly before using your other products for optimal results.
