What’s the number one reason keeping you from going makeup free? I ask this question all the time to my dermatology patients. Even as a dermatology nurse and in all honesty, I have some problem areas that keep me reaching for my own makeup bag again and again. I also want that “I don’t even need makeup” complexion but my discoloration from sun damage and old acne scars is holding me back! Fine lines and wrinkles have also appeared over the years too, starting around the age of 28. They are amplified by my dry skin, which is always in need of hydration. To address these problem areas I described above, I started using Active Hydration Serum and REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum from Rodan + FIelds. So, if you are on the same quest for flawless skin follow my journey over the last several weeks using these two serums from Rodan + Fields.
I have always had dry sensitive skin and it has always been more dry on my lateral cheeks. It can be caused by several factors including a dry climate, genetics, or inadequate hydration. You can also see in the picture above dark spots of sun damage on both cheeks, more on my left driving side than my right. On my chin, I have visible discoloration from old hormonal acne scars. These tend to leave dark purple lesions that take quite some time to fade on their own.
To quench my thirsty skin, I knew I needed a product that could provide deep hydration. So I started using Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum. It instantly boosts hydration levels in your skin by 200% while locking in moisture for all day hydration. The Active Hydration Serum uses the patented 3D3P Molecular Matrix that delivers a high level of Glycerin to prevent moisture loss and cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid that deeply hydrates the skin. It is a sheer lightweight formula that feels like a silky serum. After using it for several weeks my skin feels more moisturized and looks more plump and balanced. I use it twice a day for my dry skin, applying it to my face after I cleanse. Here is a pro-tip, always keep your face damp after washing it, and then apply the Rodan + Fields Active Hydrating Serum to ensure max penetration.
Since I started using, Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum I have seen visible improvement! This serum is designed to target visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles and overall skin luminosity.
The serum is delivered in biodegradable single-use capsules to ensure formula stability, and made with proprietary Retinal-MD Technology, a form of Vitamin A that is more potent than Retinol yet gentle enough for daily use. The Retinal-MD Technology empowers your skin’s natural renewing process , thus diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. I use the Redefine Intensive Renewing Serum nightly. After washing my face and leaving it damp, I twist off the tail of the capsule, smooth the serum on my face, neck and chest (remember to avoid sensitive areas like around the eyes or corners of mouth) and then I follow it with a moisturizer.
With any skincare routine you won’t see long lasting results unless you use them consistently. That is my number one tip to all of my patients and followers, consistency is key! You have to use Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum and REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum on a daily basis over several weeks to see visible results. I saw that my visible discoloration and dark spots faded, along with my fine lines and wrinkles. My skin tone is more visibly even and in addition to that I feel like my skin has a more plumped and brighter glow. I even started going without my normal daily foundation and opting only for mascara and lip gloss. Rodan + Fields has a 60-day money back guarantee even with emptied or used bottles! So instead of continuing to reach for the makeup bag, try Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum and Redefine Intensive Renewing Serum to bring your skin back to life!
