Declare Your SKINdependence!

Beat the Summer Heat and Sun Damage!


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!

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.

Do You Know Why You Should Read Sunscreen Labels?

Spring has arrived!


What should you look for in a sunscreen?

Although we should be using sunscreen on a daily basis, as the weather begins to get warmer, as spring arrives, some of us finally begin to think about sunscreen. We are ready to get out and have fun in the sun during this time of the year, but we should remember to protect our skin!

sunscreen questions

You might be asking yourself these questions when it comes to sunscreens:

  • Am I reading and understanding the sunscreen labels on my sunscreen products?
  • Do I know what my sunscreen is doing for me?
  • How do I determine what is best for me when it comes to a sunscreen?
  • What are my friends using for a sunscreen?

 Here are some tips to help you find a sunscreen you will love.

First, and most importantly, you want to be sure that you have a broad spectrum sunscreen. A broad spectrum sunscreen will protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Second, you want to look at the SPF rating and select one with an SPF of 30 or higher. Next, look for a sunscreen that is water resistant. While it is water resistant, you still need to reapply after a certain number of minutes (the number of minutes will follow the words water resistant).

Not allowed on labels

When we read labels from the past, we were familiar with wording like waterproof, sweat proof and sunblock, but the truth is, that these products are not water proof and do not block the sun from our skin, so these terms are no longer acceptable on labels.

What about sunscreens with insect repellents? Do you buy a combination insect/sunscreen product? While it sounds like a good idea to knock out two birds with one stone, it really is not. Here is why: sunscreen will need to be applied liberally and reapplied throughout the day, while your insect repellant is not needed as often and is used much more sparingly.

Protect your lips

Do you protect your lips from the sun? If you do not, you should make it a point to use a lip balm that is broad spectrum. Use it year round to protect your lips everyday!

Finally, buy items you really like because if you like the sunscreen products you are more likely to USE them! Try the products whenever possible to make sure you like the smell and how they feel on your skin. Ask friends what they use to get some ideas for shopping. Try their products, if possible, to see what you think. You want to be happy with your purchase, so determine if your product has a hassle free, 100% satisfaction guarantee. If not, shop around. Once you find something you like make your purchase. Use you sunscreen products daily for the best results, because every day is a SUN day!
