Restore Your Skin with ZO Get Ready Protocol

With ZO’s Getting Skin Ready Protocol, you can eliminate acne and restore your skin health. Surface oil on the skin can be problematic, so it is important to use products tailored to your skin type to manage oil without further irritating skin.

Excess skin surface oil can:

  • Cause inflammation
  • Clog pores, which leads to acne
  • Play a role in acne, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, and hyperpigmentation

Getting Skin Ready is the system of cleanse, exfoliate and tone that works synergistically to restore overall skin

In an 8 week clinical study*, GSR was shown to reduce surface sebum, dirt, and appearance of pores, as well as improve overall skin texture.

*Protocol: an 8 week clinical study on 35 subjects. Subjects cleansed both AM/PM with Gentle Cleanser, exfoliated AM with Exfoliating
Polish and toned skin both AM/PM with Oil Control Pads
