Frequently Asked Questions

What Conditions Can The ZO Skin Health Range Treat?

ZO Skin Health offers various formulations that can effectively treat a range of concerns including acne and acne scarring, sensitivity, redness and rosacea, pigmentation and melasma, fine lines and wrinkles. The brand also provides products for combination, oily or dry skin.

What Order Should I Use My ZO Skin Health Products In?

  1. Cleanser: Start with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin.
  2. Toner: Apply a toner next to balance the skin’s pH levels and remove any remaining traces of dirt.
  3. Treatment Products: Apply any treatment products such as serums or spot treatments. These often contain active ingredients like vitamin C, retinol or hyaluronic acid.
  4. Moisturiser: Follow up with a moisturiser to hydrate and protect the skin. This helps lock in moisture and maintain the skin’s barrier function.
  5. Sunscreen: In the morning, finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Sunscreen should be applied as the final step in your skincare routine to protect against UV damage.

What Active Ingredients Should I Use?

The active ingredients you should use in your skincare routine depend on your specific skin concerns and goals. However, the most commonly used ones include:

  1. Hyaluronic Acid: Attracts and retains moisture in the skin, helping to plump and hydrate the skin’s surface.
  2. Retinoids (Retinol, Retin-A): Effective for treating signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
  3. Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid): Helps to brighten the skin, fade hyperpigmentation and protect against environmental damage.
  4. Salicylic Acid: Effective for treating acne-prone skin.
  5. Glycolic Acid: Exfoliates the skin, promoting cell turnover and improving skin texture.
  6. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3): Improves skin barrier function, reduces inflammation and regulates oil production.

Step By Step


Consultation is our chance to get to know you, understand your concerns, and agree on a personal treatment plan. Taking your medical history into account, we will agree on the best pathway to your desired outcome.


This is where we bring all our skill and experience to bear. From chemical peel to Botox® injections to skin boosters, your expert clinician will deliver the treatments agreed during your consultation, making sure you are comfortable and at ease.

3. Aftercare

Though many treatments are walk-in, walk-out processes, some require downtime and a carefully considered aftercare regimen. We will advise you of activities, substances, and medications to avoid, while ensuring you know the best way to look after your treated skin.
