How does the SOOTHE Regimen work?
Each product in the SOOTHE Regimen has been carefully formulated with ingredients specifically designed to address sensitive skin. SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash emulsifies makeup and other skin impurities. SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment contains RFp3, our proprietary peptide technology that combines peptides with a protease inhibitor to neutralize triggers and pacify irritable skin. Optical filters help reduce the appearance of redness and botanicals comfort dry, irritated skin. SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream utilizes unique patent-pending RF COLD FISSION™ to keep ingredients together in an elegant base without the use of emulsifiers. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 uses only physical sunscreens (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) to deflect damaging ultraviolet rays and keep the surface of the skin cool to help prevent flushing.
Please read the SOOTHE Regimen brochure before using the SOOTHE Regimen. It contains usage instructions for best results.
When can I expect to see results from the SOOTHE Regimen?
With your first use, the SOOTHE Regimen will help relieve your skin of dryness and symptoms such as stinging and burning. Our clinical results demonstrated a visible improvement in redness, peeling, drying, stinging and overall irritation in five minutes.
Within days to weeks, depending on the sensitivity of your skin, your skin will feel comfortable, smooth and soft with a visible reduction in facial redness. Over time, the ingredients in the SOOTHE Regimen will help support your natural skin barrier, allowing your skin to become more resilient and less prone to irritation.
In an independent clinical study, subjects with hyper-sensitive skin achieved the following results:
• REDNESS: 56% reduction after five minutes and 67% reduction after two weeks
• PEELING: 80% reduction after five minutes and 80% reduction after two weeks
• DRYNESS: 79% reduction after five minutes and 74% reduction after two weeks
• STINGING: 60% reduction after five minutes and 90% reduction after two weeks
• OVERALL IRRITATION: 78% reduction after five minutes and 72% reduction after two weeks
Do I need to use all the steps in the SOOTHE Regimen to get results?
For best results we recommend using the complete SOOTHE Regimen. Skipping any one step can minimize results.
How long should I use the SOOTHE Regimen?
Those with chronic sensitivity that results in skin reacting to common physiological and environmental stressors may need to be on the SOOTHE Regimen indefinitely. However, if your sensitivity is more occasional than chronic, you may be able to tolerate stronger products once you have kept any irritation under control for at least 60 days. Before making any changes, we recommend you test the products using the following instructions for three days, three times a day:
- Apply a small amount of the product on your jawline or neck. If you’re testing a cleanser, apply it for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
- Apply each product on a separate area. When you test again, reapply the products in the same area as originally applied.
- Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.
If you determine your skin can tolerate more active products, you may begin adding them to your daily skincare routine every other day, building up to daily usage.
Can I use the SOOTHE Regimen if I'm taking prescription medications?
If you are taking prescription medications, we always recommend consulting your doctor regarding your skincare routine. This is as simple as sending the SOOTHE Regimen ingredient list to your healthcare provider for review.
Sunscreen irritates my sensitive skin. Can I skip this step?
People with sensitive skin need to be especially diligent about sun protection because sun exposure can trigger sensitive skin.SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 contains only mineral-based sunscreen ingredients (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) that deflect the sun's rays, keeping the skin's surface cooler to minimize the appearance of facial redness. Additionally, by deflecting the sun's rays, fewer free radicals are generated/formed, which is another one of the triggers those with sensitive skin should avoid.
SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is a lightweight formula free of chemical sunscreens, fragrances, dyes or alcohol that can irritate sensitive skin. It conditions skin with panthenol and glycerin, helps protect skin's natural barrier with dimethicone and provides natural anti-irritant and antioxidant benefits with vitamin E and licorice root extract.
If you are still concerned, we recommend you test the product on a small area before using on your entire face.
Why do I need to shake SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen?
SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 thickens as it rests in the bottle. When shaken, its fluidity is restored for ease of dispensing and application.
What is an emulsifier?
Emulsifiers allow rich oils to be combined with aqueous ingredients creating elegant creams and lotions. Emulsifiers are widely used, but for those with sensitive skin, they can trip the inflammatory cascade. With RF COLD FISSION™, we're able to give sensitive skin the ingredients it needs in an elegant formulation without the emulsifying ingredients that can cause irritation.
I'm concerned that SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream will be too much for my oily skin.
If your skin is excessively oily, use SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash, apply Sensitive Skin Treatment and layer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 in the morning. In the evening, follow with Sensitive Skin Treatment and apply Moisture Replenishing Cream as the last step.
Will SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream cause my skin to breakout?
Acne can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes, mechanical friction, bacteria or a change in medications. SOOTHE is formulated for hyper-irritable skin to help calm and is less likely to react adversely to your skin. However, if your skin is prone to breakouts, refer to the Solution Tool to discover how the doctors combine the UNBLEMISH Regimen with the SOOTHERegimen.
What causes sensitive skin?
The skin’s natural lipid barrier is designed to hold moisture, cool the skin through release of moisture and prevent irritants from penetrating into the skin. When that barrier is compromised, due to genetic predisposition or environmental factors, your skin loses water faster and is more exposed to irritation from external triggers.
What environmental factors can trigger sensitive skin?
There are a number of environmental triggers that can cause sensitivity in skin, including oxidative stress caused by free radicals, climate change, pollution, smoke, smog, sun exposure, friction or just plain old product overload. Even those whose skin is usually calm throughout the rest of the year can experience bouts of seasonal sensitivity during the dryer, harsher, winter months.
The SOOTHE Regimen helps to reduce the visible signs of irritation so that you can take comfort in having a calm, healthy-looking complexion every day.
Can the SOOTHE Regimen be used on the body?
Yes, you can use the SOOTHE Regimen on your body. Many Customers use SOOTHE products on their neck and chest. These nonfacial areas are also often visibly red and irritated.
What products should I avoid if I have extremely sensitive skin?
Avoid exfoliating or desquamating products, including our REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator, ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste and REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. Visit the Solution Tool to let Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields customize a skincare routine for you.
