Life changes. And skin changes.

What if?

But WHAT IF you could control your skin’s destiny?  You can.  You control 80% of your skin’s future (only 20% is genetic).  And that’s great news! The choices you make today will affect the way you look and feel tomorrow, next year and well into the future.

WHAT IF you could always be a few steps ahead, anticipating your skin’s biological needs?  You can.  With the right care, your skin can visibly improve with age so you can look even better tomorrow than you do today.

You do.  With 30 years of combined research and experience, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields developed their philosophy of Multi-Med® Therapy.

A video of a Photoshopped 100-year-old woman went viral after this extreme “virtual makeover” illustrated the dramatic results of what if the woman were 70 years younger and wrinkle-free. The video, first posted in 2003 after a “Photoshop Surgeon” reverse-aged the woman using digital technology, trended again recently with over 6.5 million views and counting .

What will your face look like 20, 30, 40 years from now? Sun damage from early in life can show up years later as wrinkles, brown spots, unevenness and sagging skin. Stress, too, often manifests in the form of expression lines around your eyes and between the brows. Even heredity can play a role.

While no product can eliminate wrinkles as dramatically as the Photoshop experiment, you can take steps today to help stave off the signs of aging tomorrow.

1. Stress Less. By making small, incremental lifestyle changes, you can help mitigate your stress levels. Practice yoga 15 minutes a day. Take a walk after lunch. Get monthly massages. And when stressful instances occur, remember to b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

2. Wear Sunscreen Daily. UV DermRF-whats-trending-051115 wear your sunscreenexposure from the sun is responsible for 80% of your skin’s signs of aging. Fortunately, by applying a sunscreen like REDEFINE Triple Defense Treatment every day, you can help protect your skin against these harmful aging effects that often appear later in life.

3. Fill Expression Lines. Expression lines form over time as we smile, squint, frown or furrow our brows. ACUTE CARE™ Skincare for Expression Lines can help by filling expression lines with proprietary Liquid Cone Technology that melts line-defying peptides and hyaluronic acid directly into the wrinkle for smoother-looking skin.

You might not be able to wipe 20, 30 or 40 years worth of aging from your face with a click of a keyboard, but you can help create a more youthful-looking future with some lifestyle changes and a few choice skincare products.







The Best Birthday Gift…Ever!

happy_birthday_girl_card-r8c8dbe6639234b13a99817807f8762c1_xvuat_8byvr_512-217x300I’m having a birthday, and to be honest – I’m feeling a little melancholy about it.

I certainly have a wonderful life, but getting to that age where I’d almost rather “forget” another year has passed (although the candles on that cake never seem to lie)! 😉

It got me thinking about what I could do to make my day special, and I’m wondering if you can help me out.
It’s always so nice to get bday wishes, cards etc – but there’s another kind of gift that would mean the world to me this year.

You may already know that I support a very important non-profit program (Women Empowered, through Project Concern International).

This program helps women in developing countries change their lives by starting small Alicia-Fox-Photography-82871-300x200micro-businesses (that bring in much needed income for themselves and their families).
The program is very comprehensive. Women get access to over 18 months of training, which provides them with new leadership, financial and literacy skills, and the support to start a business of their own.

Even more amazing – it only costs $50 to sponsor a gal through that entire program.

That’s it – $50 to change a woman’s life for good.

I don’t expect you to jump in and invest $50 right now (but if you feel called, of course it would be MUCH appreciated).
Instead, I’m wondering if you’d be willing to invest just $5, as a “Happy Birthday” gift to me?

( even a small percentage of you donated just a little bit, collectively, we could make a HUGE difference).

What do you think?

Would you be willing to invest just $5 to make my birthday unforgettable (while also making a huge difference for other women and their families)?

If so, all you need to do is click this link to connect to my team fundraising page to make your contribution.


Thank you in advance for your support, and for making my birthday one of the best.

I appreciate you! 🙂

Fact or Myth? Facial exercises will lift my skin

Myth:  Gravity is constantly tugging on our skin, and while a stack of weights may work great for toning your biceps, facial exercises can actually have the opposite unwanted effect of enhancing your wrinkles.

facial exercisesYour face contains 44 muscles that are constantly contracting and relaxing. These muscles are connected to your skin, so every time they move, the skin moves with them. When you sip, laugh, cry or speak, your expressions etch indelible marks across your forehead, around your mouth, between your brows and around the perimeters of your eyes.

Over time, these repeated motions lead to deep lines and wrinkles. The more you make the same repetitive facial movements, the deeper the lines become.

1731While we don’t want to lose the ability to express ourselves, there are solutions that can help us lose the wrinkles that follow. Peptides and retinol can help create firmer-looking skin.

For expression lines, hyaluronic acid and peptides are now available in an innovative delivery system known as Liquid Cone Technology, offering a great alternative to injectibles for helping to fill the wrinkles and create a more youthful, smoother-looking appearance.

Fact or Myth? Your Skin Can Speak To You…

without making a soundWithout making a sound, your skin says a lot about you.

Across all cultures, clear, radiant skin is viewed as a reflection of health and well-being. This perceived connection between appearance and health means that your skin is one of your best—or worst—marketing tools, sending a message to every person you meet.

When skin concerns go unaddressed, your skin can become an unreliable source, providing faulty information and mixed messages to the outside world.triage 1
For instance, if your complexion appears flushed or blotchy, it could lead people to mistakenly assume that you are drinking too much alcohol. If you have visible lip lines, people may believe you are a smoker. If you have frown lines etched between your eyebrows, you could give the impression of being angry or sad, when you’re actually feeling just the opposite.

Fortunately, uncrossing the signals is easier than you may think. It all boils down to understanding your unique skin concerns and responding accordingly. The biggest mistake most people make is not addressing the most significant issues first. We call this “triaging”—prioritizing issues in order to treat the most urgent problem first. For example, if you have sensitive skin but focus on treating lines and wrinkles first, you’ll never be happy with the results. And what’s more, focusing on aging before getting redness under control will only further inflame the sensitivity you already have.
