NEWS: BEYOND THE SHAVE
However, men have their own set of troubles when it comes to skin. They have larger pores and thicker facial hair. This combination can lead to acne, redness, irritation and ingrown hairs. Little known fact, but guys are more susceptible to sun damage and melanoma. And because we are ALL aging, even men need an active moisturizer.
To the rescue is BEYOND THE SHAVE. Three easy steps that won't throw a monkey wrench in a guy's simple bathroom routine. 1) The Unblemish Sulfur Wash can be used as an amazing shaving cream that will hold up in the shower while the 2% sulfur softens beard hair while simultaneously helping to unclog pores and kill bacteria. 2) Soothe Sensitive Treatment will provide post-shave relief and calm any redness and irritation and reduce the chance of ingrown hairs and 3) Redefine Triple Defense Treatment provides excellent anti-aging moisture with an SPF30.
It's now available for existing Preferred Customers and Consultants only! So whether you yourself are a guy or you have a guy in your life, place this in your cart for your next order.
As a bonus, BEYOND THE SHAVE comes with a pair of Acute Care patches!
PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: ACUTE CARE
ACUTE CARE with proprietary Liquid Cone Technology targets expression lines with an advanced wrinkle treatment featuring line-defying hyaluronic acid and peptides for visibly reduced expression lines in just four weeks. And, ACUTE CARE was just named the Readers' Choice Breakthrough Product of 2015 by TotalBeauty.com.
ADVICE: ONE STEP AT A TIME
Q. Is it necessary to let one skin product dry before applying the next one? How long should I wait before layering another product?
A. Dr. Katie Rodan: If you follow the directions and use the recommended amounts, your R+F products should absorb quickly, leaving little wait time between layers. However, humidity can affect product “dry-down,” in which case you may want to wait a full minute or two before applying the next product. In cases of extreme humidity, you may also want to cut back on the amount of moisturizer you’re using. Your skin should feel moist, but not sticky to the touch before applying the next layer.
My two cents: Waiting until your products absorb doesn't have to add time to your morning or evening routine. Simply incorporate it — make your morning coffee, brush your teeth, pick out accessories, check your email, feed your pets, change into your pajamas or lock up for the night between steps.
Bonus tip: Consistently caring for your skin twice a day will improve your results. If you often skip your nighttime treatment, try doing it a couple of hours earlier, when you are home for the night, but not ready to turn in. I find that if I wait until I'm exhausted and ready to fall into bed, it's easier to forgo my skincare routine.
