BEAUTY SLEEP IS IN YOUR FUTURE: HOW TO PREP FOR BED

BEAUTY SLEEP IS IN YOUR FUTURE: HOW TO PREP FOR BED

Hey, sleepyhead! Yes, you — we see you’ve been dozing off on the couch, in your clothes, or someplace other than in your bed. Where’s your nightly routine?

What’s that? You don’t have one?

If you research it for even for a minute, you’ll see that a consistent bedtime pattern produces optimal sleep, which can affect pretty much every aspect of your life, including your health. All it takes is a bit of planning. Before you close your eyes, create a snooze-inducing sleep environment and you’ll wake feeling rested every morning, not to mention rested-looking. Take out your bullet journal to track your progress and let’s get cozy!

How to Create a Nighttime Ritual

First things first — avoid caffeine, heavy meals and intense exercise three hours before you go to sleep. While caffeine is obvious, a full tummy and sweat session also stimulate body functions, making it harder to wind down. Herbal tea can be part of any nighttime ritual and enjoying it at approximately the same time every night, your body and mind will start to recognize it as a signal to relax.

We’re all familiar with “endless-scroll syndrome” — that gripping desire to find the non-existent bottom of your Twitter feed or watch just one more episode on Netflix. Phones, laptops, TVs, and tablets all emit blue light that suppresses melatonin, an essential hormone for quality sleep.

Instead, turn off your devices at least an hour before bed, two is even better. All it takes is one provocative news article to rev up your mind. And try sleeping with your phone in another room, just try it! It’s also a reason to use black-out shades to create a dark sleeping environment.

Skincare at Night

Like your mind and body, skin rejuvenates itself during deep sleep. (It’s called beauty sleep for a reason.) If you care about your complexion, stick to your nightly Regimen. If you’re just starting, it looks like this:

  1. Take off your makeup! Sleeping with the day’s grime, including 18-hour old makeup, is just not good for your skin. Try ESSENTIALS Instant Makeup Remover Wipes and ESSENTIALS Complete Eye Makeup Remover to get the gunk off first.
  • Wash your face and follow the rest of your Regimen steps. Using products in the right order is a ritual in and of itself, one that gives skin exactly what it needs so you can see the results you want.
  • Try our bubbling REDEFINE Rejuvenation Mask after your cleanser. It refreshes tired skin while Jojoba beads exfoliate for a radiant, clean feeling. Use up to three nights a week.
  • Any skin type can benefit from Active Hydration Serum, which attracts moisture to hydrate skin. Use between Step 2 and Step 3 of your Regimen (SOOTHE users, apply between Steps 1 and 2). If you have oily or combination skin, try this at night. Those with dry skin can apply it both in the AM and PM.
  • Finally, apply R+F Lash Boost every night for obsession-worthy lashes! Simply glide over your upper lash lines. And remember, less is more!

We strive to make skincare simple. Following your Regimen steps gives structure to a nighttime routine, which can improve sleep. Benefits of deep, rejuvenating rest are substantial. Start sleeping like a pro tonight — and waking up to the best skin of your life every morning.

Layer on hydration with…

Active Hydration Serum

All skin types, even oily and blemish-prone, need hydration, especially in harsh winter weather. This oil-free serum preps your skin to better receive products layered on top of it, improving their performance. If you have dry skin, use it twice daily — after cleansing and toning — then follow with morning or evening moisturizer. If you have normal, oily or combination skin, use the serum nightly after cleansing and toning, and apply your evening moisturizer as needed.

Layer on texture and firmness with…

REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum

This revitalizing serum is formulated with Retinal, a concentrated form of Vitamin A. It empowers skin’s own renewing process for a more refined, firmer-looking complexion with fewer visible lines in just four weeks. Use it at night after cleansing and toning — and layer it over Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum if you’re using both.

Layer on instant perfection with…

This tinted Dermacosmetic instantly protects and perfects the glow you’ve earned from having a consistent skincare routine. Available in six sheer shades, Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid provides buildable coverage for a beautiful finish and a radiant,healthy-looking complexion.

Prepare Now For Holiday Party Skin

Prepare Now For Holiday Party Skin

The holiday social whirl is fast approaching. Is your skin ready for all of those party selfies? If the answer is no, not to worry. This is the perfect time to commit — or recommit — to your skincare routine. Start now and follow this advice, and you’ll see results in time to P-A-R-T-Y this holiday season.

P is for Protect and Perfect. Defend your complexion against the elements with our groundbreaking Glow Guard: NEW Rodan + Fields Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid offers protection against the effects of environmental aggressors, dryness and UV rays. Start using it now for lasting results over time — and instant perfection. Available in six flexible shades, this tinted multitasker immediately gives your skin a polished look, blurring imperfections and camouflaging redness.

A is for Add a few enhancements. These products add a few minutes to your routine, but the results are totally next-level. Try our AMP MD Derma-Roller with your REDEFINE or REVERSE Brightening Regimen; its micro-exfoliating tips help your skin absorb products more effectively. Treat your body to our ultra-hydrating moisturizer, Active Hydration Body Replenish, for visibly softer and smoother skin. Apply R+F Lash Boost nightly for the appearance of longer-looking lashes.

R is for Regimen dedication. The easiest way to ensure your skin is gorgeous for the holidays is to care for it all year. If you aren’t already using the Rodan + Fields Regimen that addresses your skin concerns, get started now! And don’t forget your lips and eye area. Use these products as directed and your skin will always be party-ready.

T is for Take care of yourself. Healthy eating, sleeping and hydration habits often go out the window during the holidays. Make a commitment to yourself now that you won’t let that happen this year! Nourish your skin from the inside out with a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and drink lots of water. Next, promise yourself that you will get enough sleep over the coming weeks. When you’re fatigued, your skin looks tired — which is exactly what you don’t want.

Y is for “You time.” The holidays are fun, but they can also be stressful, which doesn’t do your skin any favors. Before life gets crazy — and especially when it does — squeeze in a yoga class, read a book or get a massage. When you’re calm and happy, your skin will look the same.

Before you get the party started, here are even more ways to prepare your skin for the holidays.

Share this with friends or family members. It could save their skin — and their lives.

Reveal a Fresh-Faced Look For Spring

Spring brings all kinds of perks: more sunshine, barbecues and longer days. While it’s easy to get swept up in the fun of a new season, remember to stay diligent with your skincare routine–after all, nobody wants to “spring forward” the signs of aging. Check out this simple way to stay fresh-faced all season.

Adding a micro-exfoliating tool, like the REDEFINE AMP MD™ System, to your R+F Regimen can amp up your results for a firmer, more youthful appearance. That means visibly improving skin texture (yes, even fine lines and crow’s feet) while minimizing the appearance of pores. It starts with a powerful duo: the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller features non-invasive technology designed for home use, while Night Renewing Serum combines a proprietary blend of powerful peptides and Retinol for brighter, younger-looking skin. Talk about a win-win.

Need another reason to try micro-exfoliation? There’s more great news for REDEFINE™ Regimen users. The AMP MD System has been clinically shown to have a 58% greater reduction in the appearance of expression lines when REDEFINE Regimen, AMP MD and ACUTE CARE™ were used together for four weeks, and when REDEFINE Regimen and AMP MD were used for another eight weeks*.

Sweeping away those dulling, dead skin cells can really boost your results.

No doubt about it, spring schedules move fast–but there’s always time to add AMP MD System to your spring routine and discover the best spent minute in skincare.

SHARE this skincare advice with anyone looking to amp up their anti-aging routine.

*Based on a 12-week independent US clinical study of 40 participants. 10 applications of ACUTE CARE were used at 3 times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday).

Not Snoozing? You might be losing valuable beauty sleep!

whats-trending_090415_dermrf

When it comes to keeping your overall health, mood, and memory in tip-top shape, we’ve long known that if you don’t snooze, you lose. Skipping out on Zzzs can affect your body and mind’s performance from the inside out—and the consequences for your skin are no exception. In fact, they go well beyond the telltale dark circles and sleep creases that fade.

A 2015, study partially sponsored by the Sleep School in London, found that missing just two hours of sleep for less than a week can spell serious trouble for your complexion—specifically, an increase in wrinkles, bacteria, and blemishes. These findings support a 2013 study by University Hospitals Case Medical Center, which revealed that sleep-deprived women (ages 30 to 49) showed signs of premature skin aging (fine lines, uneven pigmentation and reduced skin elasticity) and a decrease in their skin’s ability to recover after sun exposure.

Whether you’re a man or woman, sleep is essential to good health and good skin. The skin “rests” at night, which means cells undergo repair and turn over slightly faster, helping your face look bright and refreshed. Just because your fall calendar is filling up and back-to-school schedules have you tempted to burn the candle at both ends, try not to let your skin suffer.

Check out these tips for getting a good night’s sleep (plus a few tricks to make those precious hours of slumber work harder for your skin).

*How To Maximize Your Beauty Rest*

~ Remove TVs, electronic devices and digital clocks from the bedroom to create a calm, comfortable environment. (The white noise app can stay.)
~ Keep the bed warm and the room cool. Our skin temperature increases during sleep, so skin absorbs products better.
~ Apply REDEFINE ACUTE CARE Skincare for Expression Lines with peptides and hyaluronic acid three nights a week for four weeks to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and create a more younger-looking you.
~ Avoid coffee and alcohol four to six hours before bedtime.
~ Reduce puffiness in the a.m. with a dose of caffeine—on the eyes. Steep two black tea bags in hot water for three minutes, then cool in the fridge and apply to eyelids.
~ Amp up your daily skincare routine with REDEFINE AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller and Night Renewing Eye Serum for firmer-looking skin.
~ For daily skincare concerns, select the Regimen that’s right for your skin: UNBLEMISH to treat acne and breakouts; SOOTHE for sensitivity; REVERSE to diminish the appearance of discoloration; and REDEFINE to target aging concerns.  #teamenthusiasm
