What to Expect on the Day of ZO Skin Health

When you use your ZO Skin Health products, it is suggested that you follow the “Fundamental Five” for the best results. These 5 steps should be practiced in the following order:

  • Cleanse – Should be done twice daily to remove surface debris.
  • Exfoliate – Although this step tends to be the most often skipped, it helps remove dead skin cells and improves the texture of your skin.
  • Tone – Important for all skin types, because it helps to control oil, restore the pH in your skin, and enhance product penetration.
  • Barrier Repair – Rather than using a moisturizer that can act like a barrier and interfere with your skin’s natural hydration and oil balance, we recommend using a special barrier repair product.
  • SPF – Often overlooked, it is very important to always apply a facial SPF within your morning regime. Items such as smartphones, computers, LED lighting, and other daily pollutants can contribute to skin damage and cause aging. Additionally, UVA rays can even affect your skin through windows, such as sitting at an office desk next to the window or even driving in your car.
