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.

5 Skincare Travel Tips, Tricks, & Hacks

5 Skincare Travel Tips, Tricks, & Hacks

Planning your dream vacay? You’re not alone. Nearly 100 million Americans will go away on vacation in the summer. Even if you are staycay-ing this year (which does not have to involve cleaning out a closet. Ever.) — there’s something for everyone in these tips, tricks and hacks.

Tip: Pack Light & Carry-On

This is pretty much Amateur Fail #1 — packing too much and feeling hampered by your stuff. Do yourself a favor and pack only a minimum. Live by the motto “I never check a bag” and you can avoid lost luggage, surprise back pain and heavy hauling.

Here’s how: Sub out your full-size Regimen faves with travel-size versions. R+F offers mini Regimens for REDEFINE, REVERSE Brightening, REVERSE Lightening, UNBLEMISHand SOOTHE for a limited time, available while supplies last. These small-but-mighty Regimens help you keep up your results wherever you go!

Trick: Combat Climate Change

When it comes to travel, skin may be in for a bumpy ride: Dry skin from recycled airplane air, unsightly breakouts from humidity, irritated skin from sunburns and dull skin from demanding itineraries. Our new Face Masks combat all of the above on a case-by-case basis. Available in travel sizes for FREE ($30 value) when you buy any Home & Away Special!

REDEFINE Rejuvenation Mask gives skin an instant boost of hydration, REVERSE Radiance Mask brightens the complexion, UNBLEMISH Clarifying Mask fights random breakouts and SOOTHE Rescue Mask calms irritated skin.

Hack: Make Room for Multitaskers

Save time, energy and luggage space with multitaskers that do it all (almost!) — check out these high-performers that will fit into that single carry-on.

Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid provides complexion coverage, sun protection, environmental defense and more — all in one, travel-friendly bottle.

ESSENTIALS Instant Makeup Remover Wipes do so much more than just remove makeup. Use to refresh skin throughout the day, wipe hands clean and of course…remove makeup at the end of the day.

Start working on the appearance of longer, fuller, darker lashes with Lash Boost so you can ditch the mascara, lash curlers and eye makeup remover!  

Tip: Protect Your Best Asset — YOU

Don’t leave safety behind just because you’re out having fun. Here’s how to safeguard your assets while on vacation.

Sun damage is no joke. A sunburn can ruin your precious vacation time — and contribute to visible signs of aging in the future. Keep skin safe and healthy with the sunscreen included in your Rodan + Fields Regimen.

Hot weather and windy climates can lead to chapped, sunburned lips. For times like these, reach for ESSENTIALS Lip Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 25 to keep lips soft, smooth and protected.

Hack: Wash Your Face to Fight Jet Lag

Long flights, travel delays and layovers can lead to grumpy moods and unhappy skin. Combat these travel woes by jumping into your skincare routine upon touchdown and reset your day with a fresh application from your favorite friend, your Regimen. You’ll feel instantly cleaner and more refreshed. Take that, jet lag!

Rodan + Fields New Masks, and Yes They Do Feel Good on Your Face

Rodan + Fields New Masks, and Yes They Do Feel Good on Your Face

For years, Rodan and Fields has been addressing your skin concerns with the Regimens within its collections — Soothe, for calming sensitive skin; Unblemish, for treating adult acne; Redefine, for diminishing the appearance of fine lines and pores; and Reverse, for brightening and evening tone. Now each of these lines is getting its very own gel, clay, or cream face mask.

Rodan + Fields’s newest launches are as much about how you feel while you mask as they are about the products’ effects on your skin. “We wanted to ensure these masks delivered a fun and efficacious experience with a trifecta of benefits — amazing sensorial cues upon application, instant and visible skin benefits within 10 minutes, and clinically demonstrated dermatological skin benefits,” -Vice President of Product Development Sumita Butani. Some of these sensorial cues include color-changing and bubbling effects on the skin. Butani also explained that it took the brand years to develop these masks, saying that they did rigorous testing to perfect each formula.

Read on to learn more about each mask. They will be available for purchase on May 23.

 

Rodan + Fields Soothe Rescue Mask

The Soothe Rescue Mask ($60) does exactly that. The cooling mask, which contains a swirl of calamine lotion, will soothe and quell red, irritated skin. Yes, it is a clay mask, but with glycerin in its formula, it never leaves skin feeling stripped of moisture.

Rodan + Fields Redefine Rejuvenation Mask

The most fun of the four masks is the Redefine Rejuvenating Mask ($60). In just five minutes, you’ll see the gel mask bubble up and get frothy on your skin. As you add water and massage it in, you’ll feel the biodegradable particles (made from jojoba) suspended in it gently exfoliate. You’ll be left with a softer complexion that is plump with moisture.

Rodan and Fields Unblemish Clarifying Mask

The Unblemish Clarifying Mask ($60) was designed for acne-prone skin, but also does the trick for the mornings when you realize you’ve fallen asleep with your makeup on. This mask brings down pimples, whiteheads, and blemishes, and zaps excess oils with a potent dose of concentrated sulfur (it contains 10 percent of the ingredient). Just smear the cream on, massage until activated (you’ll know that it is once you’ve burst all the beads suspended in it and the mask turns purple), and leave it on for 10 minutes.

 

Rodan and Fields Reverse Radiance Mask

The Reverse Radiance Mask ($60) is literally the gold standard of masking. The thick, gold goo smells clean with hints of citrus, and glides onto skin easily. With its blend of gentle exfoliators, you’ll have glowing, more even skin in just 10 minutes.

No Makeup Is The New Makeup For Spring

No Makeup Is The New Makeup For Spring

There’s a lot of dramatic contouring and full-coverage foundation happening on social media these days, as people strive for a perfect, selfie-ready complexion. But at Rodan + Fields, we believe anyone can achieve clearer, more even-toned, flawless-looking skin with a lot less makeup. If you’re ready to use less base, concealer, lip color, and even mascara, we can help.

Instead of base, try a Regimen

Want to go foundation-free? You can, with a skincare routine that tackles the issue you’ve been trying to cover up. Whether it’s acne, dark spots, discoloration, redness or fine lines, your Rodan + Fields Consultant can help you find the Regimen that’s right for you. Commit to using your Regimen consistently, and the look of flawless skin is in your future!

If you’d still like a touch of cover, our oil-free, lightweight tinted Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid protects and perfects the radiant skin you’ve earned.

Instead of under-eye concealer, try REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream

What if you had nothing to conceal? Our Multi-Function Eye Cream has optical diffusers that brighten the eye area, and it’s a workhorse when it comes to firming and improving the appearance of fine lines over time. You can also use it with Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex, an illuminating hydrating gel that diminishes the look of dark circles, puffiness and tired eyes. So instead of concealing, try revealing!

Instead of eye makeup and brow powder, try Lash Boost

Want the appearance of longer, fuller, darker lashes? Our bestselling lash serum is perfect for those wishing to use less mascara — or none.And, yes, you can use Lash Boost on your brows, too.

Instead of lipstick, try REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum

For slightly glossy lips that get lovelier over time, try our antioxidant-packed serum. It visibly smooths lips and reduces the appearance of fine lines and lip wrinkles, leaving lips conditioned and revitalized.

Feeling confident without makeup is life changing. So, here’s to embracing the natural beauty that you are.
