Whether it's the start of a new year or just a new and improved you, committing to a better skincare routine is often a choice made when we are not happy with what we see in the mirror, when we've reached milestone birthdays or (gasp!) compare ourselves to someone who seems to beam and glow no matter what they are doing.
Good skincare is ALWAYS something I strongly recommend. We get one shot at the skin we've been given and taking care of it is something you will never regret.
Starting or switching up your skincare routine can - and usually will - lead to some not so pleasant changes in your skin. You can expect changes like dry skin/patches, flaking, redness and of course, acne while your skin adjusts to the new products. These are annoying but expected side affects and may even test our patience a bit while our skin adjusts but it's worth the wait when you know beautiful glowing skin will be ours!
What to watch for
There is a difference between a normal reaction and an allergic reaction.
A normal reaction should not be painful or long lived. Applying a new toner or retinol serum or cream can cause some tingling, mild stinging and redness. These can be expected changes as your skin becomes accustomed to new products. Don't panic!
What to do
Ease into the new product. Reduce the frequency of use. Try using the product once a week, three times a week, every other day - whatever your skin will tolerate - to introduce the products and allow your skin time to acclimate.
When will I see results
Products with active ingredients like retinol and pigment fading creams take some time before you see results. Be patient. Like most things - they take time to produce the results we want.
What I recommend
Anyone who knows me, knows I love Rodan + Fields products - all of them! I believe in the products, I believe in the company and I believe in the doctors that created them. And, I recommend them without hesitation, if you're looking for products that are proven to work, have countless before and after success stories, have products for most skin care concerns and offer a 60 day, empty bottle, hassle free, money back guarantee - this is your answer!
The core regimens are designed with the Multi-Med philosophy of combining the right ingredients in the right formulations and using them in the right order to give you a complexion that is younger looking, brighter, clearer and more even-toned.
Formerly sold exclusively at Nordstroms, they are now available through direct sales and I can help you find the what works best for you. To learn more, reach out and contact me directly at email@example.com or visit www.debra315.myrandf.com.
It's never to early - or too late to start taking care of your skin! Whatever you do, be consistent, be faithful and watch the youthful glowing skin we all want emerge!
Cheers to a new year and a new you!
