INTRODUCING Rodan + Fields® REDEFINE Acute Care Skincare for Expression Lines
What is it? Patented liquid cones “melt” into lines and wrinkles for naturally smoother looking skin. Overnight results that continue to build over time. Early-onset smile lines and more established crow’s feet and lip wrinkles are often the first signs of aging. Now you can fill in those pesky lines and wrinkles WHILE you sleep! NO NEEDLE REQUIRED!
Each Acute Care patch holds more than one hundred microscopic liquid cones that melt into lines and wrinkles for smoother, more youthful looking skin. When used at night, these treatment patches fit comfortably under the eye, above the lip, forehead, or anywhere you have expression lines that you don’t love, to quickly and painlessly smooth them away for a naturally younger-looking appearance. REDEFINE Acute Care Skincare for Expression Lines delivers hyaluronic acid and peptides that produce visible results in the majority of users from just one use. Acute Care patches are designed to be used every third night for one month with results lasting for up to 3 months. (Best results seen with continued use of Rodan + Fields REDEFINE regimen. Take a look at the REDEFINE Overview video.)
“Most women (myself included) don’t mind seeing a few wrinkles when we are smiling; but it really bothers us when the wrinkle ‘sticks’ throughout the day,” says Dr. Rodan. “Treating crow’s feet, in particular, is extremely challenging because the wrinkle is caused by a combination of muscle contractions and thinning skin. Acute Care is a unique approach allowing us to aggressively target a wrinkle overnight. Think of it as an at-home infusion of hyaluronic acid that cosmetically fills wrinkles – allowing people to achieve impressive results without the need for clinic-based procedures.”
“Most available cosmetic quick fixes are based on difficult-to-use, temporary “filmformers” that tend to be uncomfortable and not worth the effort. One thing we know for sure is that if a product isn’t used, it has no chance of working,” said Dr. Fields.
“With that in mind, we created an elegant product that delivers real results effortlessly. And while the half-moon shaped Acute Care patches are designed for the eye area, they are easily applied to other areas of the skin as well.” Click here for Acute Care Success Stories

We are always getting unsolicited media coverage and the news is always GREAT! In just the past week, there have been featured news stories with the doctors about the legacy brand they are creating and about the direct selling model.
Most recent, yesterday on the Today Show: Click to see the news reel roll —>How the direct sales method is helping moms earn extra cash As a stay at home mom, I can relate to this featured story! I get the best of both worlds – owning my own business that generates an income for my family AND being home with my family!
And see those women in the picture with the doctors below? Those are MAJOR beauty editors in New York City being educated by Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields on the NEW PRODUCT that will be released in September! This is sure to be ALL OVER THE MEDIA in no time!

How do you raise 30K for a new school? Let social media help!
Are you someone that likes to take a selfie photo? Did you answer YES? If so this could be a great opportunity for you! Did you answer NO? Maybe this cause will move you to snap one and show your support!
Have you ever joined a movement to help others? Did you say YES? Awesome, thank you for your contribution to others. If you answered NO, this is a simple movement to join on July 25, 2014. All you need to do is snap a no-makeup selfie and post it publicly on your social media network tagged with #RFGoNaked. For each no-makeup selfie posted by men and women on that day $1 dollar will be donated to educate and empower students! What a movement! I am sure you can help us meet the goal. The question is WILL YOU?
How can your selfie help?
Your publicly shared selfie tagged with #RFGoNaked is worth $1 towards the goal and will help to raise 30K for a new school which will in turn help to educate and empower students! You can share what you are doing with others and why, which in turn may move them to help. Social media is a powerful tool and with your help we can raise these funds before lunch time! Your picture will have that kind of power in this movement! I think that makes it very worth it when you snap it makeup free! You may think, makeup free, but letting your guard down for one instant will really say something to the children we are supporting! All children need to be educated and empowered! What is more empowering than seeing all the people that support this cause and knowing that they cared enough to share their photo for the cause? You may not be opening your wallet personally, but you are taking the time to show you care! Sometimes when we show we care that is more moving and harder to place a dollar value on. If you believe this to be true, PLEASE HELP and SHOW YOUR SUPPORT on July 25, 2014!
Why should you care?
In our day and age, we can never have too many people looking out for us and caring for us! The Rodan+Fields Prescription for Change Foundation is an organization that is helping to restore hope for those in need. They are helping expand their reach by adding new partnerships each year.

Teens on Summer Break? Having a BLAST or SHYING away from the spotlight?
Some teens may not be experiencing a summer break like the ones pictured above. Why? You ask. It may be that the fear of returning to school with a skin concern is weighing heavy on their heart.
As a stay at home mom, I don’t stay at home all the time or I might go silly from singing and dancing to way too many children’s songs. Therefore, I take my children out and about weekly! When I am out, I see and interact with teens in the service industry (grocery stores/local restaurants/entertainment places for children) that are suffering from a lack of self-confidence because of a skin concern. This breaks my heart. Having 2 children, I often think to myself I would do anything I could for them so they would not have to feel self-conscious about looking someone in the eye when speaking to them because of a skin concern. I want to reach out to each of these teens that I encounter, but I feel that would only make the situation more awkward than they already feel it is. There are solutions though and this is where you come in!
The biggest issue I usually see teens facing is ACNE. But did you know, 100% of acne is preventable and controllable? YES! There have been new developments in skincare technology over the years that will assist those suffering with acne so that they don’t have to feel like they are not putting their best face forward. Some teens may not be worried about it, but that is NOT the majority of teens. Most take acne personally and suffer with low self-esteem because they blame themselves for their skin problems. They think, if I only scrub my face more with soap, it will get better, but it doesn’t. They think, if I wash my face more times a day, it will get better, but it doesn’t. They feel hopeless because they just can’t seem to make the acne go away. They feel hurt inside and ask, “why me?”. Some shy away from making friends because they fear others won’t see past the acne on their face. It is a cruel world out there and teens are tough on one another. There is peer pressure, growing pains, the desire to fit in……don’t you remember your teenage years? It can be life changing if you exclude yourself from them world because of a skin concern.
I am reaching out today, to ask you if you know of any local teens that are dealing with acne that would like access to a possible solution? If one comes to mind, I would love for you to inbox me his/her story of why you think this could possibly be a life changer for them and include a photo of him/her if you have one. When you submit the story to my iamtarabuck@gmail account, please add the subject line “Teen Skin Concern Candidate”. I want to bless one of these local teens each month over the next 5 months with 60 day supply of the Unblemish Regimen so he/she can start on the journey to better skin!
Please remember though, he/she has to be committed to use the products as directed so they can see the results. It won’t happen overnight, and it won’t happen if they are not committed to caring for their skin. To begin, I would first like to meet with the teen and his/her parent so I can share the products with them and make sure the directions are clear. I want to receive his/her commitment, their word, to completing the journey in person! I will ask him/her to capture their journey over the 60 days with photos emailed to me weekly so I can put together a CHANGE collage for him/her so they can see the changes in their skin over time. I know most teens have phones, so capturing 8 -10 selfies over the time span of the journey should not be a problem for most of them. Please take a moment to think about who you know locally and if you see this as a blessing to them, please contact me TODAY! The first blessing will happen on Friday, August 22nd. Thank you for submitting possible candidates and their stories! I can’t wait to make this happen!
Did you realize…..your skin is exposed to UVA (aging) rays 365 days a year in all daylight hours, rain or shine, and even through glass windows. “It is estimated that sun damage impacts more than 100 million Americans,” state Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields. When it comes to sun damage, it is often NOT what you see, but what you don’t see that is causing your skin to look dull and aged. “You can reverse the appearance of pigmentation marks. It’s a fixable condition,” states Dr. Kathy Fields. It is a FACT that ZERO people are born with freckles!
PROTECTING your skin with a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen is key! CLICK HERE to see IMAGES of test subjects, at Canfield Scientific as they sit for a VISIA® Complexion Analysis System scan, which compares the skin as it appears in normal lighting to ultraviolet and digitally processed images that show subsurface spots and skin damage. (Canfield Imaging Systems)
Rodan + Fields Product Philosophy: “While everyday skin conditions can be complex, the solutions don’t have to be. That’s why our products are based on a philosophy of Multi-Med Therapy—using the right medicines and active cosmetics, in the right formulations, in the right order. As practicing dermatologists, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields know that treating the underlying cause of a problem works and yields long-term benefits. To see real changes in your skin, you must use real medicines. Our product development strategy is to combine OTC (over-the-counter) medicines and active cosmetic ingredients to create safe and effective formulations. We take safety and efficacy very seriously, and we know that it takes the right concentration of an OTC drug or active cosmetic to achieve the desired result without adverse effects. This understanding and expertise comes from Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields’ years of experience in treating their patients, and they are the inspiration for the products we create.”

Does Bill’s story shock you? Does it make you think about YOUR skin any differently? I invite you to discover the difference that great skincare can make in your life. Skin is skin no matter your gender, age or ethnicity. We control 80% of our skin’s destiny – what will you do today to look even better tomorrow? As an independent consultant with Rodan + Fields, I am able to offer my clients a full-face regimen that will help address any concerns they have! Men and their skin need as much care as women do, but they may NOT want to admit it…to other men! Look at the results below and imagine what these clinically proven products can do for your skin too!
We are all aging all the time, but what that looks like is up to you. Decide today how you are going to look tomorrow with our Redefine Regimen and Redefine products. REDEFINE is a comprehensive skincare regimen that layers cosmetic ingredients and proven peptide technology to help defend against and reduce the visible signs of aging for noticeably firmer, smoother, flawless-looking skin.
Breakouts? Unpredictable? Unreasonable? Unfair? Take control with our UNBLEMISH Regimen. Clinically proven to combat the entire acne cycle, this sophisticated regimen helps unclog pores, clears breakouts and calms your complexion to keep pimples, blackheads and post-acne marks from making an unwelcome appearance on your face—and in your life.
Since many acne sufferers have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), the remnant red/brown marks following a healed blemish, we offer UNBLEMISH Spot Fading Toner. However, if you are one of the lucky few who does not experience PIH, use our UNBLEMISH Clarifying Toner as an alternative.
It’s not what you see, it’s what you don’t see. Exposure to the sun and the environment can leave you with less-than-youthful skin. Erase the signs of premature aging, including brown spots, dullness, and sun damage with REVERSE regimen. REVERSE regimen exfoliates, lightens, brightens and protects your skin for a more even tone and texture. Recognized in Allure Magazine’s A List!
Where do you turn when your face can’t take it anymore? Calm the flush-blush reaction of a hyper-sensitive complexion with SOOTHE. Clinically proven to reduce redness and irritation in as little as 5 minutes, SOOTHE shields against the biological and environmental aggressors that can trigger inflammation, helps fortify skin’s natural moisture barrier, calms visible redness, and reduces irritation so that you can take comfort in having a healthy-looking complexion every day.
SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash doubles as a calming shaving lotion to help reduce razor burn and irritation, and SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment is an excellent aftershave treatment for men with highly sensitive skin.

This is a special post for Ms. Taylor’s 8th grade class! After I left your class, I started thinking about other ways I could share more information with you. This is what I was able to come up with just for you all and any other teens out there following my blog!
Are you concerned about any of these: Cleaning and moisturizing your skin? Removing your make-up? Protecting your skin from the sun? Acne treatment and prevention? Sensitivity?
No matter where you fall on the spectrum of being a teen, from 13 – 19, you might have some skin problems and want to know what you can do to help yourself with these common concerns. Read on and share with your teen friends!
Cleaning and Moisturizing Your Skin
While sharing with all of the beautiful young ladies in Ms. Taylor’s class on May 9th, we talked about how to clean our skin and do it WITHOUT breaking the bank since you all are saving for college. Here are great finds from Allure Magazine: Beauty Finds for Under $20. Click on the link and check out slide #1 (am moisturizer with sunscreen), slide #3 (am with sunscreen and tint for coverage), slide #5 (acne solution), slide #7 (sensitive skin concerns) and slide #9 (moisturizer with SPF). These might be great options for you to consider when determining what might be right for you depending on your skin issues. In addition, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is a gentle and effective way to clean your skin rather than just using soap and water.
Preventing Sun Damage
Are you looking for ways to prevent sun damage to your skin, the Skin Cancer Foundation has some great information for you on how to repair or even reverse the signs of sun damage. Some of the big items that were included by them, we also talked about! They are protecting your skin daily with a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen, exfoliating a few times a week and staying hydrated, especially during the summer! Check out this information from Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields on what recent studies have shown actually inspire teens to use sunscreen, it may shock you and change the way you start the conversation with your teen. If you are a teen, hopefully you will realize that sunscreen daily will have a huge impact on how your skin ages.
Acne Treatment and Prevention
If acne is your biggest problem, there has been a lot of product development over the years to help you fight the battle, and WIN. In the WebMD article Coping With Acne: Your Care Plan, the three main categories of acne are described and various treatment options are given as well. You can read more on their site, but remember acne is treatable and preventable, however you must find something that works for you and stick with the routine. Just because your face begins to clear up does not mean you can stop your routine. If you have acne prone skin, you have to have follow through to stop the cycle and clear your skin and CONTINUE to keep it clear! If you want to see what all is out there in terms of acne treatments, you can see a wide variety of acne treatments at Drugstore.com an online resource that will allow you to read up on what is available before you take a trip to your local store to make a purchase.
EMERGENCY PIMPLE FIX
If you need an emergency pimple fix, here are some tips from Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields from their book Write Your Skin a Prescription for Change:
1. Apply ice buffered by a napkin for 10 to 15 minutes to reduce redness and telltale swelling.
2. Cleanse and apply a treatment lotion containing sulfur, which can be purchased without a prescription. Sulfur helps to unplug pores and shrink swelling.
3. Follow with a product containing 1% hydrocortisone or benzoyl peroxide (both are available over the counter) to keep pores freer and clearer.
4. Apply a thin layer of a medicated concealer.
5. If time permits get a cortisone shot from your dermatologist. The results can be miraculous.
Is your skin always reacting to the products you use? Perhaps you have sensitive skin. If that is the case, Women’s Health Magazine gave some tips for winterizing your skin, that can apply all year. We also discussed that you should try to find products that are fragrance and dye free. The article from Women’s Health gives great advice and suggests some products that you might like and that your skin may take to easily.
Ready for some make-up removal tips? Make sure you remove your make-up everyday before you go to bed for the evening. Now to see how it is done very easily, you have to check out these video clips with 8 easy steps from Wiki How to do anything: How to Remove Make-up. We talked about coconut oil, but as suggested in this video petroleum jelly, olive oil and baby oil are good alternatives. Just be sure to remove all oils used so as not to clog your pores. You will keep your skin looking great and feeling healthy!
And no matter what you do, keep these 10 ideas in mind for HEALTHY skin! Forming these habits early in life will help you keep your skin healthy for the long run!
