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.
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).
