WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EXFOLIATION AND MICRO-EXFOLIATION?

Microderm

Dr. Katie Rodan: Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells to brighten the complexion. Regular exfoliation will help accelerate cell turnover and aid in the removal of excess melanin. It also helps clear the way for better efficacy of active ingredients.

Exfoliation can be part of your daily cleansing routine. REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash with alpha hydroxy acids helps loosen dead skin cells and refine skin texture and tone. To further boost results from your skincare Regimen, using an exfoliating tool, like REDEFINE AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller, is clinically proven to improve your results by 50%. This tool conditions your skin, improving the appearance of firmness and elasticity and minimizing the appearance of pores.

 No matter which exfoliation method you choose, the secret is—don’t overdo it! Avoid harsh exfoliant ingredients like walnut shells or apricot pits that can scratch or irritate your skin. If your skin becomes red, uncomfortable, or dry, substitute an exfoliant cleanser with a mild one,   followed by moisturizer, until your skin recovers. When it comes to your skin, the saying “no pain no gain” simply isn’t true! The best results are achieved with products that are both gentle AND effective.

CLEAR UP YOUR SKIN FOR BACK TO SCHOOL

back to school clear

 

Fall…time for back to school, for getting back into a routine. The anticipation, excitement and, in some cases, anxiety can wreak havoc on your complexion. And if those hot summer days haven’t brought you a sweat-induced breakout yet (lucky you), then the combined stress of a revved-up fall schedule could easily show up on your face. The good news is that while acne is not curable, it is treatable and controllable.

Use these easy tips to stay ahead of back-to-school acne and score flawless-looking skin:

  • Wash your face both before bed and in the morning. A whole day’s worth of dirt, oil and even environmental pollution can coat your face by the end of the day. Likewise, hair products can rub off onto your pillow, and from there end up on your cheeks, so it’s important to start clean every morning.
  • It’s important to remove layers of dead skin cells and dirt so they don’t block your pores. Gentle exfoliation also keeps your skin glowing.
  • Don’t pick or pop. Disturbing a pimple can cause infections and make it worse, sometimes leaving a scar. Dab a sulfur treatment on the problem area twice a day to bring down the swelling, or try UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash to unclog pores and reduce visible redness.
  • Keep it simple. Too many products can aggravate your skin. UNBLEMISH Regimen is a simple, four-step continuous solution that addresses the acne cycle, eliminating most acne blemishes before they are visible on the skin’s surface.
  • See your dermatologist. If you’re still having acne challenges, see your dermatologist for a consult.

There’s one thing to remember if nothing else: you should continue doing what works for you. To quote Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, “When it comes to beating acne, success is routine.”

WHAT ARE YOU WASHING YOUR FACE WITH?

sTEP 1I have had many questions about this little nugget of information. Read on.

Skincare 101: Do you know why Rodan + Fields doesn’t offer #foaming #facewash??

Answer: Sodium laureth sulfate is the foaming agent used in most cleansers. It can be #comedogenic which means it can cause #blackheads , #cloggedpores, #pimples , #skinrash or dry #scaly skin. It’s NOT necessary to have bubbles in order to properly #cleanse the skin.

What wash are you using and is it specifically targeting your skin concern???  Don’t just randomly pick a wash…know what you need and why you need it!!
