Clear, radiant-looking skin has always been a sign of youth and vitality. And let’s face it—looking good also means feeling good. If you’re excited to get a natural, healthy-looking glow again, EXFOLIATION is the perfect complement to any skincare regimen.

Exfoliating regularly is essential because it gets rid of dulling, dead skin cells to allow younger, healthier-looking cells to surface. It also preps skin for the products that follow by removing dry, dead skin cells that can create a barrier to your moisturizer or make other skincare ingredients less effective. To optimize the results you see with your daily regimen, make sure you are exfoliating at least once a week.

Everyone has a different skin type, so it’s important to find an exfoliation product that fits your personal needs. Our products are for men and women – everyone has skin, right?

Looking for an oil-free exfoliator for sensitive or acne-prone skin? ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is an oil-free formula that combines salt and sugar in a high-glide formula that buffs off old cells to improve skin tone and texture. Skin looks brighter after the first use—and with regular exfoliation, you can help maintain that glow. For face or body, this jar of joy does double duty for your skin. Wet it down for more sensitive skin before applying. Wonderful before shaving too, guys!

Craving a daily cleanser with skin brightening powers? REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash is a multi-mechanism exfoliator and is especially designed to cleanse and refine blotchy complexions. It’s all about the Alpha Hydroxy Acids, which effectively loosen and sweep away dulling, dead skin cells to reveal a more radiant-looking you.

Ready to amp up your anti-aging skincare routine? REDEFINE AMP MD features a non-invasive micro-exfoliating roller clinically tested to boost your REDEFINE results for a visibly firmer, more youthful-looking appearance.

Exfoliation offers a simple way to help your skin look like it’s younger than its years. Follow me on Instagram or Twitter and PM me to find the perfect solution for you or you can also Find out what the Doctors recommend for your Skin!!

FLAWLESS LOOKING FALL SKIN – Quick Tips

09_whatstrending_hero

As the seasons change, so do our skincare needs. Hot, humid months turn crisp and cool, exposing skin to a variety of environmental stressors. Stay ahead of the seasonal skincare curve with easy tips and effective products that keep your complexion looking flawless all year long.

  • Swap facial soaps for hydrating cleansers. Wind and cooler temperatures can dry out skin and cause redness or sensitivity, so switch up your cleanser game and keep clean with gentle products. Start by removing your makeup, then use SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash to combat dry, chapped, cracked skin.
  • Remember the importance of exfoliation. Exfoliation is a necessary step for healthy skin, even in dry months. A gentle exfoliant like the EHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste helps remove dead skin cells and clears the way for skincare treatments. Plus, it helps refine and soften the skin’s surface—and silky skin is always in style.
  • Keep your smacker supple. Your lips deserve just as much attention as your complexion. Give them the ultimate moisturizing treat with REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum. Each capsule helps restore and maintain a fuller, younger-looking pout. All the better to be smooched over a pumpkin spice latte.
  • Don’t skip the SPF. Just because you’re accessorizing with scarves instead of sunglasses doesn’t mean harsh UVA and UVB rays aren’t coming your way. Before you head out the door, continue to slather your skin with a high quality sunscreen like ESSENTIALS Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Body Sunscreen.

Follow the tips above and keep your complexion glowing no matter what weather you find yourself in.

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!!

ANNIVERSARY GIVEAWAY

206816_1033062581668_4262_n

16 years and counting.  Yes, today I celebrate 16 years of marriage.

16 years ago, I donned the traditional red color, gold jewelry and had henna that covered my arms up to my elbows!!

But the ONE thing that anyone has EVER commented on every time they saw my wedding pictures including the one above, was my flawless complexion.  Would you believe it that my makeup, although done professionally, was minimal?  I did NOT want to look like a caked up doll and worry about my makeup running all over the place in the heat of summer!

The funny part was that the woman I had initially hired to do my makeup, Jyoti, ended getting shingles days before my wedding!!  I know, I was in tears.  With everything that was already going wrong, I did not want to hear this.  So she offered to send in a friend in her stead who apparently charged a lot more to do bridal makeup.  But since this was certainly not my fault, her friend Sheila, decided to do my makeup for the same price.

However, price was not my only concern!  My BIGGER concern was whether Sheila was going to do my makeup the way I wanted, which was just light coverage.  I did NOT want to touch my face and come away with streaks of makeup on my fingers instead!  Get the picture?  Anyway, long story short, Sheila did a great job!  I still get compliments that I still look just as I did 16 years ago.

But do you know what the REAL secret behind that is?  It is caring for my skin and keeping it flawless.  Of course I have aged 16 years, but people are shocked to hear I am a mother of 3 kids and my oldest is in high school!!

So, here are my 3 simple tips to incorporate so you too can have a flawless complexion!

 

  • Exfoliate.  Exfoliate.  Exfoliate.  I cannot stress how important this is to keep your skin regenerating new cells!  My absolute favorite?  ENHANCEMENTS Micro-dermabrasion Paste $70**.  You can read more about what some other people have to say about this paste here, here and here.Microderm
