Skincare kits in lockdown - which one to buyby Dr Ros Debenham
How many unfinished skincare products have you got in your bathroom, and in your cupboards? When you don't see results of course you are going to be less likely to be diligent and then be tempted by special offers that say "9 out of 10 users said their skin felt smoother".
Over the counter skincare just doesn't contain much in the way of active ingredients or get much in the way of results. The reason for this is partly because most consumers have been brainwashed into thinking 'cleanse, tone and moisturise' is all they need to do. We rave about ZO skincare because you get visible results so quickly meaning you won't be tempted by products that will clutter your drawers and shelves.
Every ZO protocol starts with the 3 steps of 'Getting skin ready' followed by Daily Power Defense as in the Daily Skincare Kit:
- Cleanse with a cleanser that doesn't strip the skin of oils and maintains the pH.
- Exfoliate to unclog the pores, and remove dead skin cells without damaging the skin.
- Tone with pads containing Glycolic and Salicylic acid that remove excess oils, reduce pore size and calm the skin.
The skin is now primed to receive our hero product Daily Power Defense with antioxidants and Retinol that boosts collagen and hyaluronic acid production so reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This is the Daily Skincare kit for all ages.
The next level is the Anti-Aging Skincare kit for moderate skin damage but with added Growth Factor Serum to use at night. Growth Factor strengthens the skin for stronger products to be added.
The Aggressive Anti-Aging Skincare kit uses 1% Retinol Radical Night Repair used every third night and increased to nightly once the skin is accustomed to it. Redness and dryness can occur with Retinols and demonstrates the efficacy of the ZO products.
