GSR™: Getting Skin Ready – Your Basic Routine

getting skin ready

GSR™: Getting Skin Ready is an essential ZO® principle for both daily maintenance and preparing skin for therapeutic medical treatment. It ensures skin functions properly, tolerating all daily exposure and activities. In addition, it prevents and controls acne, rosacea, shaving bumps, skin pigmentation problems, enlarged pores and skin texture that is rough and damaged. The GSR™ Getting Skin Ready system will optimise the effectiveness of your ZO® treatment programme.

Comprised of cleansing, scrubbing, and control for dry skin and oily skin. This system helps eliminate skin sensitivity, restore hydration, enhance skin health and minimise treatment complications.  Below we expand on each step of this basic skincare routine.

Step 1: Wash

Cleansing your face twice a day can help to normalise the skin, removing impurities and surface debris. Thus, it leaves the skin refreshed and revived.

Step 2: Scrub

Exfoliating your skin 2-3 times a week will facilitate epidermal renewal, remove build-up, activate new skin cells and improve general circulation. In addition, it enhances the penetration of other products.getting skin ready

Step 3: Oil-Control/Tone

Oil control is one of the best ways to fight ageing, breakouts, and keep skin healthy and vital. It controls sebum, restores the skin’s pH as well as enhancing product penetration.

However, the products you need depend on your skin type (see table below).

Rebecca Newman’s ZO Journey – Week 6: Christmas Party Ready

A success! I attended the GQ Christmas party – rockstars, models etc – and not one flake.

The event was a Friday. On the Tuesday I dropped down to the ZO Essential regime:

Cleanser, Polish, Pads, Daily Power Defense, Oclipse Sunscreen + Primer SPF30.

The flaking stopped and revealed the most gloriously radiant skin. Amazing.

A facial with the fabulous Kate Kerr, and I was Christmas party ready (pic below).

I also stopped by Dr van Eeden who looked at my skin under a lens which showed him how in just a few weeks my pigmentation is visibly less, and how the regeneration of the lower layers of skin is therefore under way.

It is now Monday; I went back on the regime and I am back to skin shedding: as ever, I went a bit hard to start, and the creases by my eyes and mouth smarted so I have pulled back a little (but just a little).
