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.

Cory’s Unblemish Results


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.

Common Skin Problems

Common Skin Problems for Teens

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!

Ready to talk with Ms. Taylor’s 8th grade class!

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.


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.

Sensitive Skin

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.

Removing Make-up

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!
