Summer is only a few months away and in addition to changing weather and wardrobes, it’s time to change up your skincare too. Put away the thick moisturizers and humidifiers in lieu of something a bit lighter.
If you’re unsure where to start, we’re here to help with the GRASS Bundle.
What is GRASS?
Acronyms are great to help commit information to memory and when it comes to skincare it’s crucial to know your stuff: GRASS stands for growth factor, retinol, antioxidant, sunscreen. It’s a simple way to help you remember how to build an impactful daily routine without an exhausting 12-step routine every time.
Growth Factor: As the name implies, growth factors are skincare superstars that promote the formation of new collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen and elastin are naturally found in the body, but as we age, the proteins naturally dissipate, leading to signs of aging like sagging skin and fine lines. Growth factors work to restore firmness and elasticity, repairing damaged skin from aging and environmental factors.
Our favorites are TNS Advanced Plus and ZO Skin Health Growth Factor Serum.
Retinol: A retinoid derived from chemicals in vitamin A, retinol is a powerful skincare ingredient that can address aging, sun spots, acne, and even assist with overall skin rejuvenation. Retinol speeds up skin cell turnover for brighter, smoother skin. It also supports growth factors by encouraging collagen production.
Our favorites are the ZO Health line of retinoids. You can build up tolerance slowly with different strengths — no “retinol burn” here.
Antioxidant: An essential component in a complete routine, antioxidants protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals and environmental factors like UV and pollution — they even brighten your skin, reduce redness, and smooth fine lines. Antioxidants are naturally occurring vitamins and minerals like vitamins C, E, and green tea.
Our favorite is the ZO Skin Health Illuminating AOX Serum for daytime and ZO Skin Health Daily Power Defense for night-time.
Sunscreen: This one is a no-brainer, but an important part of the process: UV rays are harmful and can lead to premature aging and even skin cancer. Be sure to slather on a daily SPF of at least 30 to protect your face from damage adequately.
Medical grade sunscreen has come a long way and no longer leaves a chalky white sheen, but instead enhances the natural radiance with a tinted glow and a whole lot of protection.
Why You Should Bundle Up:
Our GRASS bundle not only sets you up with an at-home routine that provides results, it also includes 3 HydraFacial Diamond Syndeo sessions and a SkinBetter Peel + Oxygen Dome to enhance your look and ensure a glow that is sure to last all summer long.
