Skin Care - No Hype
There are TONS of information online about Skin Care on the internet.
Pretty Your World is not the place to learn everything about the subject.
But skin care is important since it is your body’s largest organ and one of the biggest indicator of your health.
Think about it: pale, sallow skin can signal weakness, tiredness and sickness. The exact opposite of what we are aiming for when we wear our right colors! We want to look fresh and vibrant and healthy. That's our thing.
And you’ve probably heard the paint analogy when it comes to putting on makeup: you wouldn’t want to put a fresh coat of paint on old, crackling paint, right?
You want to remove the old paint and create the best, smoothest service for your makeup to sit on.
So I repeat, skin care is important.
But I hate hype. And I don’t talk about things on my site unless I feel it is helpful. So in my humble opinion as a trained Esthetician and Makeup Artist, these are the two most important things you need to do to take care of your skin:
- Find a good regime and follow it religiously. Consistent daily cleansing, toning, and treatment with a good line is better than inconsistent care with a premium brand.
- An essential part of that regime includes wearing sunscreen daily – rain or shine, winter or summer Stats show that sun exposure accounts for the vast majority of the signs we associate with aging: sun spots, wrinkles, thinning. Vanity aside, the most important reason for sunscreen skin cancer prevention.
Why I chose Rodan + Fields Skincare
I was on the lookout for a long time for a skincare line that isn’t overly hyped nor outrageously expensive, but isn’t so plain and ineffective that you could get the same results by just using a bar of Dove soap. However, I had skin care product-hype fatigue. There are so many good products out there and there are so many so-so products out there and those that can actually do harm to the face.
Being the cheap skate I am I actually used Dove soap for a long time, while I waited to see if anything special came into my view.
Then my friend and business partner, Rachelle, told me about Rodan + Fields skincare. Rachelle is not one to hype anything. And I wasn’t too enthused, because as I said I was fatigued. I probably wouldn’t have tried it if she didn’t send me a regime to try. Even though they offer a 60-day, empty bottle return guarantee, I didn’t want to even put any money into to try it.
But I was hooked on the first product I tried, which was their Microdermabrasion Paste.
To make a long story short, I love EVERY product I have ever tried from them.
And if you haven’t tried out their products, you are missing out. The price of a regime is for a 60-day supply so when it is broken down into monthly costs, it is very affordable.
The ladies who started Rodan + Fields are dermatologists so they know what works and what doesn’t. And I love, love, love that each regime includes a fantastic sunscreen (my absolute favorite – absolutey no chalky or white film at all).
For those who order a full regime from us you can get a FREE color analysis to use for yourself or someone else. (fyi: R+F is available in the USA, Canada, and Australia currently).
You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
