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.

4 Things You Should Know About Radiant Defense

4 Things You Should Know About Radiant Defense

True innovations begin with a need – and the inspiration to solve for it. Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields were motivated to create their latest innovation by a common request from women of all ages and skin tones who were beyond thrilled with their daily Regimen results, yet still liked to use post-Regimen products that instantly perfect skin for a more polished look.

The Doctors challenged the R+F team of scientists to create a dermatology-inspired skincare product that instantly perfects while protecting one’s natural glow with powerful, good-for-skin ingredients. The result? New Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

The last step in your skincare routine, this multitasking complexion protector and perfector is available in six luminous shades, which can be worn alone or blended together to create customized color. A tinted “Glow Guard” that helps protect the skin you’ve earned, Radiant Defense instantly blurs imperfections without clogging pores or causing breakouts.

Here are four things you should know about Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid, the first DERMACOSMETICS product from Rodan + Fields.

1. It pairs perfectly with every Regimen — for even better results. When used with the REDEFINE Regimen, Radiant Defense helps minimize the look of fine lines and pores for an even healthier-looking complexion. For REVERSE users, Radiant Defense will even out tone and diminish the appearance of dark marks for a uniform, radiant finish. As part of the UNBLEMISH Regimen, Radiant Defense will instantly conceal the look of existing acne and post-acne marks. Finally, SOOTHE users will see blotchy skin instantly transformed into an even-toned, balanced-looking complexion.

2. It’s powered by the RD3 complex. Formulated with R+F’s proprietary RD3 complex, Radiant Defense provides three types of defense: environmental defense, barrier defense and photo defense. It helps neutralize the harmful effects of environmental aggressors, repair skin’s natural moisture barrier to avoid dry, irritated skin and helps protect against early signs of aging caused by UVA and UVB rays and disperses infrared light, preventing harmful effects of exposure.

3. It’s best applied with the Radiant Defense Liquid Brush. With luxuriously soft fibers that glide across skin and a tapered design that allows for precise application along every facial contour, the Radiant Defense Liquid Brush was designed to ensure flawless application of Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid. For luminous skin, add a pea-sized amount of product to the back of your hand, lightly tap the brush into it, then apply to your face in an outward motion until you’ve achieved your desired level of coverage.

4. It’s earning rave reviews. In a user study, 97% of participants felt Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid helped improve their skin immediately, and 94% noticed their skin looked healthier immediately. In the same study, 91% of participants noticed an instant reduction in visible redness, 89% noticed a reduction in visible pores and 86% noticed an improvement in perfecting discoloration.*

Does Glass Block UVA/UVB Rays?

Does Glass Block UVA/UVB Rays?

While window glass effectively blocks UVB rays, UVA rays, which cause premature signs of aging, still get through.

This means that whether you’re sitting at a desk by a window, are in a window seat on a plane, or are in a car, your skin is likely being exposed to damaging rays.

Studies have found that in the United States, skin damage is worse on the left side of the face and body since that’s where we sit when driving. Windshield glass is usually treated to block UVA and UVB rays, but side windows are not.

To best protect yourself, slather on the SPF each morning, whether you’re going out or staying in, and reapply every two hours.

 If you need to restock your supply (or get an extra for the car), we have sunscreen for your BODY, and one for every Regimen: REDEFINE, REVERSE, UNBLEMISH and SOOTHE.

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

Revitalizing Your Reverse Regimen For Dry Winter Skin

Revitalizing Your Reverse Regimen For Dry Winter Skin

Revitalizing Your Reverse Regimen For Dry Winter Skin

Did you know that a drop in the temperature can drop your surface moisture, leaving skin feeling dry, tight and even chapped. So use extra care throughout your skincare routine.

“Be sure to use a light touch when cleansing with REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash  #1 by using your fingertips to gently massage over the entire face,” Mary suggests. “This mitigates overworking the skin — especially the cheek area.”

Adding extra hydration to the REVERSE Brightening or REVERSE Lightening Regimen  also will benefit dry winter skin. Mary notes that “applying Active Hydration Serum twice a day over the entire face after cleansing and toning will not only reduce the cycle of dryness but reduce visible pores and fine lines, helping skin to look younger and more radiant.”

In an eight-day US clinical study, this breakthrough serum instantly raised skin’s hydration level by 200% after just one use, and maintained it for up to eight hours. The reason? Active Hydration Serum is formulated with our patent-pending 3D3P Molecular Matrix, which draws in moisture from the atmosphere and locks it in.

And hydrated skin not only looks healthier, but is also primed to more readily accept ingredients from products that are layered on top. This means Active Hydration Serum actually boosts the brightening or lightening benefits of your REVERSE Regimen. You’ll address your discoloration concerns — such as the appearance of dullness or stubborn dark spots — plus see smoother, softer and more radiant-looking skin. (To discover where Active Hydration Serum fits into your particular REVERSE Regimen, check out this video.)

Our research backs up these results: In an 8-week clinical study, participants who added Active Hydration Serum to their REVERSE Regimen experienced more even-looking skin with a visible reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As we said in our previous article about the benefits of pairing the REDEFINE Regimen with Active Hydration Serum, it’s a win-win all around.

Step up your REVERSE Lightening or REVERSE Brightening Regimen with Active Hydration Serum today.
