While there are a few baseline products that suit almost everyone’s needs (can you say Daily Power Defense!) please remember that there are over 150 different skin types which means that what works for me doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you.
So, keeping that in mind, I am here to share my morning and nighttime routine with my favorite (and only) skincare products, ZO Skin Health.
MY MORNING ROUTINE
My skin tends to be on the drier side, and even more so during the winter months. I use this time to attack any damage the summer sun has caused, such as changes to pigment.
I’m always on or in the water, at the beach, biking, hiking, or just relaxing near the water, however, no matter how often I apply sunscreen or wear one of my many big-brimmed, floppy hats, the sun seems to find a way – so winter is the best time to reverse any damage.
Products I use in the morning
Twice a week I use ZO’s exfoliating polish to help remove dead, dry skin. This stuff is absolutely a favorite of my client’s, and while you may want to use it more often it is best to limit to 2-3x per week.
3. Daily Power Defense
3. Daily Sheer
Sunscreen, sunscreen, and more sunscreen. Even in the winter months – which tend to be cold, rainy, and a bit gloomy here in the PNW – sunscreen is and should be a daily part of everyone’s skincare routine. I apply non-tinted Daily Sheer after my DPD and before applying any makeup.
4. Sunscreen + Powder
My Winter Addition To Attack Summer Damage
Pigment Control Creme
To combat summer skin damage, during the winter month’s I reintroduce ZO Skin Health’s Pigment products. Every morning, I apply Pigment Control Creme before my usual products. Paired with the nighttime routine, this will help fade browns.

My Winter Additions To Attack Summer Damage
Final note: In addition to my regular skincare routine, I also include laser treatments such as IPL during the winter months to further hit any browns or pigment issues from the summer.
I will also add in an Enzymatic Peel in the evening sometimes and maybe a Pore Refiner in the morning.
If you have any questions about skin issues, drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, shoot me a text, or call 360-335-4951. I also do virtual consultations but my favorite way to consult is with hands-on skin.
My 30for30 is a quick (30 min) and inexpensive ($30) facial consultation where we can talk about your skin concerns while getting a facial customized for you. This lets me get my hands on your skin and see how it reacts to medical-grade products and generally allows me to offer an educated approach tailored just for you!
