Ask Mary: Dry Skin Facts

Ask Mary: Dry Skin Facts

Rodan + Fields product expert-in-residence Mary Radford, RN, on the causes of dry skin — and how to cope.

Q: Help! Why is my skin so dry? 
A: Lots of things can make skin look or feel dry, including genetics, certain illnesses and medications, aging and climate. We can’t control the weather or the date on our birth certificate, but we can replenish dry skin and help keep it from getting too dry in the first place.

Q. Why does my usually normal skin get so dry in the winter?
A. When it’s very cold outside, the humidity drops. This lack of moisture in the air leads to visible skin dryness. Turning up the heat, cozying up to a fire or taking a hot shower may make your dry skin worse: The heat may feel good, but it can also be dehydrating.

Q. What about the opposite – why does my skin get so dry in the summer?
A. In the warmer months, most people expose more skin to the elements. Heat and wind evaporate skin’s natural surface moisture. So do UV rays, especially if you get sunburned. Plus, chlorinated pools and saltwater are dehydrating — the list goes on and on!

Q. How do I treat dry skin?
A. I’ve got three words for you: Exfoliate. Hydrate. Moisturize. 
I exfoliate my face and body with Rodan + Fields ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste two to four times a week. (If you’re new to exfoliation, more than once a week may be too irritating, so start slow.) The next step is to drench your skin from the outside in. For your face, try Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum. Apply your moisturizer on top of the serum.

For your body, the “hydrate and moisturize” steps are extra-easy: Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Body Replenish does both! (Click here for more about the difference between hydration and moisturization.)

Q. What if my skin is so dry it hurts? 
A. Once skin becomes cracked and flaky, it’s challenging to get it back on track. Tiny fissures in cracked skin make it even more vulnerable to irritation, so skip the exfoliation and pamper skin by hydrating and moisturizing for several days. Once your skin is in better shape, you can add gentle exfoliation. (Our Soothe Regimen for sensitive skin can work wonders on dry skin, too.)

Q. How can I prevent dry skin?
A. Skip drying soap and opt for a cleansing cream. Bundle up in the winter and wear sun-protective clothing in the summer. Wear sunscreen every day, 365 days a year. And drink more water, too!

10 Things To Accomplish Before The New Year

10 Things To Accomplish Before The New Year

And that’s a wrap on 2018…well, almost! It’s always nice to start a new year with a clean slate — not to mention clean skin! — so here are 10 things we’ll be doing before ringing in 2019 with a bang.

Join us, or use these ideas as inspiration when creating your own list of to-dos to accomplish before the clock strikes midnight.

  1. Toss all expired makeup, sunscreen and skincare. If a product is past its prime, it’s time to replace it.
  2. Take down and store your holiday decorations. Once the New Year rolls around, they’re the last thing you’ll want to see.
  3. Send thank-you notes to people who gave you holiday gifts. There’s no time like the present to express appreciation for your presents.
  4. Exfoliate your face and body. Out with the old (dead skin cells) and in with the new (younger, vibrant cells)!
  5. Treat yourself to a pedicure. Starting the New Year on the right foot is easier when your toes are in tip-top shape.
  6. Go through all your clothes and shoes and donate anything you haven’t worn in the past year. If it’s been that long since you’ve worn something, you’re not going to miss it.
  7. Take a look at your skin and assess its current state. Could you use more hydration? Are you seeing signs of aging? Now is the time to add a new product to your routine and make sure you are fully stocked on all the products you need.
  8. Write down your personal and professional goals for the year, both big and small. Cross them off as you achieve them, add more as the year goes on, then look back at the list at the end 2019 — you’ll be impressed by all you’ve accomplished!
  9. Clean out your email inbox, delete unneeded files on your computer and remove apps from your phone that you no longer use. The more clutter you eliminate, the easier your tech will be to navigate.
  10. Take a restorative yoga or meditation class, or get a massage, to help you de-stress from the holiday chaos. It helps to start the year in a Zen-like state — or somewhere close to it!

How To Tell If You Have Dry Skin – And How To Deal With It

How To Tell If You Have Dry Skin – And How To Deal With It

At one time or another, everyone has probably experienced dry skin on their arms, legs or elsewhere on their body. Dry body skin doesn’t look or feel the same for everyone, so you might notice just one of these signs or several at once:
Dry skin on your body can feel:

Tight, Itchy

Dry skin on your body can look:

Red, Ashy, Scaly, Cracked, Flaky

Depending on how much sun damage your skin has endured over the years, dry skin also may look crepey — thin, loose and papery, with surface lines.

Who gets dry skin and why?

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, some of the primary causes of dry skin are age and climate. People who submerge their hands and arms into water frequently as part of their job — such as doctors, nurses and hairstylists — are also prone to dry skin. So are people who swim in highly chlorinated pools.

Luckily, there is a product for dry body skin in its many manifestations:

NEW Rodan + Fields  Active Hydration Body Replenish. Whether your symptoms are caused by genetics, age, climate or occupation, one thing you have in common with other dry-skin sufferers is that you’re probably seeking relief from how your skin feels and visible improvement in the way your skin looks. That’s where Active Hydration Body Replenish comes in.

This rich-feeling body cream is both hydrating and moisturizing.

(What’s the difference between the two? Find out here.)  It’s powered by the patent-pending Rodan + Fields 3D3P Molecular Matrix, which draws in water from the atmosphere and holds it against your skin. After just one use, your skin will feel softer, smoother and more hydrated.

And the benefits get even better over time. Used daily, Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Body Replenish leaves skin feeling more nourished. In a four-week U.S. clinical study, Active Hydration Body Replenish more than doubled skin’s hydration level in just four weeks. A full 100% of study participants saw improvement in the overall appearance of their skin, 97% saw improvement in skin radiance and 94% saw improvement in the look of crepey skin.

Active Hydration Body Replenish is designed to relieve a multitude of dry-skin signs and works for all ages and skin types. So whether your skin is dry and crepey, flaky and itchy, or red and cracked, give it a try. Your body will thank you.

Moisture vs. Hydration: Why Your Skin Needs Both

Moisture vs. Hydration: Why Your Skin Needs Both

 

To visibly transform dry skin into soft, smooth, radiant skin, you need two types of products in your arsenal: a hydrator and a moisturizer. While they sound similar, these products perform distinct tasks. Hydrators draw water from the atmosphere and deliver it to the skin for added radiance, while moisturizers replenish the skin for less dryness and flakiness.

“There’s a big difference in results,” notes Mary Radford, RN, Director of Product Education at Rodan + Fields.

Let’s start with hydration. All skin types, not just visibly dry skin, benefit from added hydration. (That’s right: Oily skin and acne-prone skin need hydration, too.) Hydrated skin feels softer and is better prepared to receive skincare products layered on top. In addition, “Hydrated skin acts and looks younger,” says Mary.

Moisturization helps skin maintain the natural lipid barrier on its surface that keeps water from escaping — or at least slows the process. “Moisturizers include ingredients to lock down hydration,” says Mary.

To look and feel its best, your skin needs both hydration and moisture. Fortunately, there are multitasking products that boost both at the same time, such as new Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Body Replenish.

The new body cream from Rodan + Fields is a single product that works double-duty. It includes Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, super-hydrators that draw water from the atmosphere. Our patent-pending 3D3P Molecular Matrix, a three-dimensional polymer grid, holds these water-attracting ingredients against the skin to deliver instant and continuous hydration.

Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Body Replenish also contains the moisturizing ingredients Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E, which work together to strengthen the skin’s all-important natural barrier.

In combination, these hydrating and moisturizing ingredients visibly transform dull, dry skin. For radiant, soft and smooth-looking skin,  Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Body Replenish is a win-win.

Forward this to a friend who’d like to discover the difference between hydration and moisturization.

Look at these results!

Hydration before and after

A little hydration

goes a long way!
