Why a Skincare Regimen is Worth Your Time and Money

Why a Skincare Regimen is Worth Your Time and Money

Skin Exfoliation is important
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SKIN FROM HEAD TO TOE

Show me a person new to a multi-step routine — any routine — and I will show you a skeptic.

It makes sense. Disappointed in the past, they want to know if all those steps really matter or if it’s just marketing. What they’re really asking is: “Is it worth my time and money?” and “Will it work for me?” So, how can you know for sure if purchasing a full Rodan + Fields skincare regimen is worth it? Let’s dive in and see!

When using a skincare regimen, you should always do your due diligence to get familiar with all the steps and the potential results from following the regimen:

  1. Look over the clinical studies to see what results are possible
  2. Review the before and after pictures to see real examples
  3. Take your own before and after pictures to track your progress
  4. Follow the directions and be consistent

Rodan + Fields Skincare Advantage

Dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields set high standards by challenging their chemists to create cutting-edge, life-changing skincare solutions for common skin issues to give visible results. They evaluate every ingredient and formula down to the molecular level to make sure it delivers the transformative, visible results we’re known for.

The Regimen Advantage

R+F regimens use Multi-Med Therapy: the right ingredients, in the right formulas, applied in the right order. Let us deep-dive into the product types that make up a skincare regimen—an orchestra of strong and gentle instruments performing together in the perfect combination for a majestic masterpiece: healthier-looking skin.

-Cleansers: Does using a cleanser matter? You just rinse it off anyway. As the first step in the routine, cleansers are a very important step to prep the skin for what’s to come. R+F cleaners offer a range of benefits that include gentle exfoliation and purifying skin as they remove dirt, oil, makeup, to chemical exfoliation of the skin’s surface for a more even appearance in tone and texture, and lines and deep wrinkles. Your cleanser offers its own benefits while also affecting how your skin responds to the remaining products in the regimen.

-Toners: Often seen as a throw-away product, a toner clears the skin for optimal application and efficacy of the products that follow. Our toners are not drying or astringent in any way. So, this format allows us to layer ingredients effectively on the skin’s surface. The different toners in each regimen offer different benefits depending on the regimen you choose, like minimizing and unclogging pores or gently exfoliating and promoting natural cell turnover.

-Creams/Moisturizers (AM + PM): Is using a cream both morning and night necessary? The cleanser and toner have prepared the skin for these next steps to allow for maximum absorption and additional benefits from creams and moisturizers, like moisturizing and protecting from UVA and UVB rays during the day (make sure to re-apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen every 2-2.5 hours when exposed to the sun), and replenishing or exfoliating the skin overnight.

Can’t I just make my own regimen?

Let’s explore this possibility. There is an immense amount of time and money dedicated to research, selecting the targeted ingredients to make a visible improvement on the skin, quality control, trial and error in stabilizing and developing effective formulations, and determining product compatibility and effectiveness. And sometimes, you might try a combination of products where some ingredients may not play well together, or you could get too much of a good thing like exfoliation, and this misjudgment may affect your skin negatively. Can’t I just buy the “hero” product from the regimen? You can but realize that we cannot guarantee the same results if you were to use the full regimen. Following a regimen is like baking a cake, it’s best to stick with a highly tested and studied regimen with all the right ingredients and to follow all the directions for the best results.

Can one regimen do it all?

R+F skin and hair regimens are designed to address common skin and hair concerns, but everyone’s skin is different. So sensitive skin may have occasional acne or discolored skin may have lax sagging skin. This is why our Consultants invite customers to use the Solution Tool to receive personalized recommendations to address a combination of concerns.

Putting together your own regimen can be overwhelming and isn’t clinically evaluated for specific results. Rodan + Fields has done the research and work for you so you can focus your time, energy and commitment to getting started right away on your skin improvement journey with proven results!

R+F Skin and Hair Products to Bring You the Holiday Glow

R+F Skin and Hair Products to Bring You the Holiday Glow

Skin Exfoliation is important
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SKIN FROM HEAD TO TOE

Prepare for the holidays with seasonal must-haves to achieve your best gleaming and healthy-looking skin and hair. Rodan + Fields offers all the products you need to look + feel fantastic and spread joy to the people around you with gifts to make their skin and hair glow this season.

MARVELOUS IN MINUTES

You’re running late, and priorities change. What is essential to look and feel your best in minutes?

FOCUS: exfoliation + hydration + glow

Grab a shower cap, dampen the body in the shower, and exfoliate head to toe with ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, rinse, and pat dry. Drench skin with Body Replenish Cream, then highlight arms, legs, and décolletage with Shimmer Body Oil.

Add Defrizz+ Oil Treatment to the palm of your hands and gently run your fingers through your strands from tips towards roots. This will add shine and control frizz. For wavy/curly hair, use Define+ Curl Cream on dry hair for beach waves. Or style your hair as usual and see softer, smoother, and sleeker results. Want some oomph? The Jumbo size Refresh + Dry Shampoo revitalizes hair volume at the roots and mid-hair shaft with a refreshing, clean scent.

For your face, apply Active Hydration Serum to boost hydration, add your moisturizer, then pat Bright Eye Complex over puffy or dark circles under the eyes to wake them up! (pssst—keep it in the refrigerator!)

For the finishing touch, layer Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid for instant coverage of imperfections, uneven skin tone, redness and an even, radiant glow.

Apply mascara, lipstick, and Brow Defining Boost for natural coverage, or go one shade darker for a more dramatic, bolder look!

You did it! You gave the right attention of exfoliation, hydration, and glow to all the right places…and you’re on time! Bring along a hostess gift such as the Shimmer Body Oil—just add a bow to the lovely packaging.

TIME FOR A CHANGE! 

The holiday season is the perfect time to up your skin and haircare game and try something new. Start with the following products two to four weeks early to look and feel more marvelous when you mingle!

FACE, NECK, DECOLLETAGE:

A Rodan + Fields Regimen will help you control your common skin concerns, and once you can count on achieving great skin, everything else is icing on the cake. Take our Solution Tool quiz to find the right skin and haircare regimen for you.

Lash Boost for visibly longer, stronger, and darker-looking lashes.

Total RF Serum addresses all signs of aging, such as visibly plumper, smoother, more supple, radiant, glowing skin with refined texture and smaller-looking pores. Overall complexion is more youthful-looking and contoured.

Multi-Acid Enzyme Peel is a leave-on, overnight exfoliation that polishes the skin for more smoothness and firmness—like glass. It’s so gentle you can sleep with it. Get ready for compliments on smoother, brighter, and firmer-looking skin.

Instant Targeted Firming Gel for instant firming, tightening, and smoothing to the areas of expression lines/wrinkles. Use under the eyes as well as smile and forehead lines. Over time, wake up looking more refreshed.

AMP MD SYSTEM utilizes a Derma Roller and Intensive Night Renewing Serum to visibly smooth lines and wrinkles and firm skin. Skin appears lifted and tightened.

Lip Renewing Serum reduces dryness and increases natural color and shape.

HAIRCARE:

Everyone’s hair needs moisture!

Use the haircare Regimen recommended to you by the Solution Tool and consider Moisture+ Conditioning Mask as a 5–10-minute leave-on intense, deep conditioning formula to renew brittle strands and soften dry tresses. You won’t believe your shiny and softer swinging hair!

Apply Defrizz+ Oil Treatment as directed for luxuriously smooth, shiny hair. Style as usual, and spray on the Jumbo Refresh+ Dry Shampoo to add volume and more shine.

BODY CARE:

Using ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste three or more times a week keeps skin clear of dulling, dead skin cells and ready to soak up Active Hydration Body Replenish to help prevent future moisture loss, resulting in less creping and younger-looking, younger-acting skin.

Before you slip on your shoes, use Ultra-Rich Foot Cream to comfort dry skin with a soothing, hydrating, quick-absorbing cream for hard-working feet.

Your final touch is the Volumizing Hand Cream for dry, tired hands. Your rings and bracelets look even better on youthful, soft, and plump-looking hands.

Guess what?! You’re holiday-ready.

GET, LOVE+ GIVE:

Now that you’re set for the holidays, it’s time to think about the perfect gifts for friends, family, or those hosting holiday parties.

My vote? Hydration! Maintaining proper hydration involves a combination of factors, including diet, lifestyle, and skincare routines.

Rodan + Fields offers an exclusive, limited edition of three hydration-boosting body care products infused with skin-nourishing oils that work to keep skin looking and feeling healthy. And icing on the cake, they all come in their festive holiday-themed outer boxes, ready to gift as is!

Volumizing Hand Cream delivers TLC to hard-working hands with natural oils, Vitamin E, Glucosamine for anti-aging properties, and Hyaluronic Acid as a water magnet to soften, moisturize, and help protect the skin. This quick-absorbing, non-greasy, and nourishing formula includes the bonus of making skin appear plumper and more youthful.

Ultra-Rich Foot Cream soothes soles with natural oil, triple Hyaluronic Acid to draw and retain water, and Shea Butter for immediate relief and comfort. This quick-absorbing but non-greasy cream gives instant relief and comfort to dry feet and soles.

Shimmer Body Oil is a silky, luxurious body oil that helps seal in moisture and dresses the skin with a shimmering veil for a pearlescent, illuminated glow. Jojoba Oil and Squalane moisturizes, supports, and protects the barrier, creating a radiant glow.

Active Hydration Body Replenish instantly and continuously hydrates skin to smoothen and plumpen it and reduce that crepe look. Feels amazing!

Active Hydration Serum gives 200% increase in hydration, changing lackluster, dry skin into more plump, radiant, smoother-looking skin. Great for anyone making rounds on the holiday party circuit.

Moisture+ Regimen transforms dry and damaged tresses by deeply moisturizing, softening brittle strands, repairing damage, and mending split ends for silky, smooth, full, and youthful-looking hair. Anyone with curly, coily, dry, damaged, or over-processed hair will love you for it!

Now that you have the best skin and hair of your life and the best gifts, R+ F wishes you and your loved ones a Happy Holiday!
