SOOTHE Regimen FAQs

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY SKIN BREAKS OUT WHEN USING SOOTHE RESCUE MASK?

At this time, we suggest taking a break from SOOTHE Rescue Mask until breakouts are under control.  If these breakouts are acne related, please keep in mind when changing a skincare routine this can trigger an acne breakout. In addition, acne can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes, or even friction such as wearing a hat or helmet.  Bacteria may be introduced by a cellphone or your hands, sweating from exercise or a change in medications or skincare products.  However, if these breakouts are occurring immediately after introducing SOOTHE Rescue Mask, this may be more of an irritation, and we recommend discontinuing use.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY SKIN BECOMES IRRITATED WHEN USING SOOTHE RESCUE MASK?

If the skin has become red or feels irritated when using SOOTHE Rescue Mask, follow these steps.

  1. Immediately clean off product (with water or a mild cleanser), then rinse, and gently pat the skin dry.
  2. Make a cold compress by placing crushed ice in a resealable bag wrapped within a soft cloth and hold this on the area for 3-5 minutes three times an hour—as tolerated.
  3. If irritation persists, ask your doctor or pharmacist for a recommendation of a usual over the counter treatment on areas of irritation such as Hydrocortisone 1%. Use as directed and layer a mild moisturizer if your skin feels dry.
  4. If the skin does not respond to the above protocol after 24 hours, you may wish to see your doctor for an evaluation and ingredient review.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS WITH SOOTHE RESCUE MASK AND WHAT TYPE OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

The SOOTHE Rescue Mask offers immediate improvement you can see and even more results over time. Although most participants instantly noticed softer, smoother, fresher-feeling skin, participants experienced the strongest results after 4 uses as once the skin is experiencing sensitivity, it can take time to calm the skin.

In a clinical study, participants using the SOOTHE Rescue Mask reported the following results:

Immediate Results

  • 81% noticed fresh-feeling skin

Results After 4 Weekly Uses

  • 100% experienced a visible reduction in redness and blotchiness
  • 100% experienced more moisturized, softer-feeling skin
  • 84% noticed more comfortable skin

WHY SHOULD I USE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK WITH THE SPOTLESS REGIMEN?

The SOOTHE Rescue Mask can be added to the SPOTLESS Regimen to address the additional skin concern of sensitivity as the mask is formulated with calming ingredients to address visible redness, blotchy, uneven skin tone and dry, irritated skin. Additionally, SPOTLESS users may benefit from the calming effects of the SOOTHE Rescue Mask to combat the visible redness, dryness and irritation that can be associated with acne-prone skin.

WHY SHOULD I USE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK WITH THE UNBLEMISH REGIMEN?

HOW SHOULD I INCORPORATE THE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK WITH THE SOOTHE REGIMEN?

Before applying a full-face application, try the SOOTHE Rescue Mask on a small area of the jawline for ten minutes. If the skin tolerates the application and feels / appears normal you can try a full-face application. However, if you experience stinging, redness or burning, immediately rinse the face with cool water.

If your skin tolerates the application, use 2 to 3 times weekly for best results. Use the SOOTHE Rescue Mask with your SOOTHE Regimen morning or night, after the Gentle Cream Wash and before the Sensitive Skin Treatment.

WHY SHOULD I USE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK WITH THE SOOTHE REGIMEN?

Based on Multi-Med Therapy, the SOOTHE Regimen is a comprehensive, twice-daily skincare routine designed to reduce visible redness and relieve dry, irritated skin for a moisturized, healthy-looking complexion.

Although the SOOTHE Regimen is a comprehensive routine, sometimes skin needs an extra boost. The SOOTHE Rescue Mask is formulated with unique ingredients not found in the SOOTHE Regimen, such as Calamine and Glycerin, to instantly reveal softer, smoother-looking skin and calm visible redness, transforming dry, irritated skin to clearer, healthier-looking skin over time.

ARE THERE ANY CONSIDERATIONS FOR USING SOOTHE RESCUE MASK ON SENSITIVE SKIN?

Although the SOOTHE Rescue Mask was designed for sensitive skin, we recommend trying the SOOTHE Rescue Mask on a small area of the jawline for ten minutes. If the skin tolerates the application and feels/appears normal, you can try a full-face application. However, if you experience stinging, redness, or burning, immediately rinse the face with cool water.

If you have any concerns about using the product, we encourage you to review the ingredient list with your doctor.

ARE THERE ANY CONSIDERATIONS FOR SOOTHE RESCUE MASK and DRY SKIN?

The SOOTHE Rescue Mask is appropriate for those with dry skin. Dry or dehydrated skin can feel tight and appear flakey or rough. The SOOTHE Rescue Mask features moisture-attracting Glycerin and soothing Calamine to calm visible redness and dry, irritated skin for healthier-looking skin over time.

As usual for anyone with sensitive skin always patch test the mask on a small area of the jawline for 10 minutes as a patch test prior to full face application.

ARE THERE ANY CONSIDERATIONS FOR SOOTHE RESCUE MASK and OILY SKIN?

The SOOTHE Rescue Mask is appropriate for those with oily skin. Although the surface of the skin may appear shiny there may be dryness beneath which signals more oil. The SOOTHE Rescue Mask features Glycerin which is a water magnet drawing water to skin and moisturizers to help defend skin from environmental aggressors. Those with oily skin are often hesitant to apply hydrating or moisturizing products for fear of looking shiny or breaking out. Rescue Mask also includes Bentonite and Kaolin Clay for their oil absorbing properties.

As usual for anyone with sensitive skin always patch test the mask on a small area of the jawline for 10 minutes as a patch test prior to full face application.

WHY DO I USE THE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK AFTER CLEANSING BUT BEFORE TONING?

While it’s not required to use the mask on clean skin, the mask will perform better on as dirt and debris may interfere with the ingredients getting to the skin. Our toners are applied before the next step of the Regimen to provide better delivery and results for the product that follows.  The toner will not interfere with the results of the mask, as our toners are designed to deliver, not take away from the skin.

 

HOW DO I USE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK?

  • As usual for anyone with sensitive skin always patch test the mask on a small area of the jawline for 10 minutes as a patch test prior to full face application.
  • Massage a generous layer of the mask on clean, dry skin.
  • Allow to dry.
  • After 5-10 minutes, rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry.

SHOULD I PURCHASE THE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK INSTEAD OF THE SOOTHE REGIMEN?

No, you should not purchase the SOOTHE Rescue Mask instead of the SOOTHE Regimen. Based on Multi-Med Therapy, the SOOTHE Regimen is a comprehensive, twice-daily skincare routine designed to reduce visible redness and relieve dry, irritated skin for a moisturized, healthy-looking complexion.

The SOOTHE Rescue Mask was formulated for use in conjunction with Regimen routines, including the SOOTHE Regimen. Although the SOOTHE Rescue Mask was formulated with unique ingredients to address the manifestations of skin sensitivity, it will not replicate the results of the SOOTHE Regimen.

HOW DOES THE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK WORK?

The SOOTHE Rescue Mask combines gentle and effective ingredients to address the manifestations of skin sensitivity including visible redness and blotchiness and dry, irritated skin.

Environmental and hormonal triggers can break down the skin’s natural moisture barrier, not only allowing moisture to escape, but also allowing irritants and allergens to disrupt the skin. Moisture-attracting Glycerin helps defend the skin from environmental aggressors by maintaining the moisture barrier, while Calamine calms skin and neutralizes irritants to help relieve stressed skin.

WHY IS USING THE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK IMPORTANT TO MY SKIN?

The sun’s rays, temperature, pollution, stress and hormones break down skin’s natural moisture barrier, allowing allergens and irritants to disrupt the skin’s calm. Dermatology-inspired and clinically tested, this soothing green clay mask provides instant results of softer, smoother-looking skin as it works to visibly reduce redness and blotchiness and moisturize over time.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I SHOULD USE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK?

You should use the SOOTHE Rescue Mask if:

  • Your skin concerns include visible redness, blotchy, uneven skin, dryness, irritation, or redness associated with acne.
  • You are beginning to use the UNBLEMISH, SPOTLESS or REVERSE Brightening or REVERSE Lightening Regimens as your skin may need moisture barrier support as it adjusts to the new routine.

WHY SHOULD I PURCHASE SOOTHE RESCUE MASK (VERSUS OTHER MASKS)?

Unlike other masks, the SOOTHE Rescue Mask not only offers immediate improvement you can see, but also even more results over time. Dermatology-inspired and clinically tested, the SOOTHE Rescue Mask instantly reveals softer, smoother-looking skin and then calms visible redness and dry, irritated skin for healthier-looking skin over time.

WHY DID THE DOCTORS DEVELOP SOOTHE RESCUE MASK?

The Doctors developed the SOOTHE Rescue Mask so users could experience instant benefits and even more results over time AND address additional skin concerns outside of their primary Regimen or boost the results of their existing routine.

The SOOTHE Rescue Mask can be paired with the REDEFINE, REVERSE, UNBLEMISH and SPOTLESS Regimens to address visible redness and calm dry, irritated skin or be paired with the SOOTHE Regimen for even more results.

How do I use ACUTE CARE with SOOTHE Regimen?

ACUTE CARE can be used with the SOOTHE Regimen, but not on areas of sensitivity, redness or irritation. For best results, follow these steps:

1. Cleanse your face with SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash rinse and pat dry. Skin must be completely clean and dry before you apply ACUTE CARE. Do not use any leave-on products underneath ACUTE CARE, including eye cream.
2. Tear open the pouch and remove ACUTE CARE from the transparent container. Carefully remove the white protective film and do not touch the delicate microstructure. For best results, use immediately after opening.
3. Position ACUTE CARE over the wrinkle area and press the adhesive gently against relaxed skin (do not stretch the skin). Gently press to activate cones and smooth out any bubbles. Do not apply ACUTE CARE over areas of sensitivity, redness or irritation.
4. Follow with the rest of the SOOTHE nighttime Regimen, staying at least ¼ inch away from ACUTE CARE.

Can infants or children use SOOTHE products?

For anyone under two years of age or if there is a health concern, we advise:

1) Consult with the pediatrician and provide him/her the ingredient list and brochure. View the U.S. product and ingredient list or Canada product and ingredient list. Ingredient lists are also available for each product on the product packaging and on Rodan + Fields product websites.

2) As the SOOTHE Brochure directs, patch test the products on separate areas near the place of planned application three times a day for three days on a small area to see if the skin can acclimate to the formulations.

What REDEFINE products can I use with SOOTHE?

People who use SOOTHE also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream and Lip Renewing Serum.

REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream combines powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet while rich antioxidants and optical filters noticeably firm the area under the eye for a more vibrant and youthful appearance. This formula is ideal for maintaining the delicate skin around the eyes.

ESSENTIALS Vitamin D3 Oral supplementation of Vitamin D3, the most absorbable form, helps to maintain health and wellness without the harmful effects of the sun.

Can SOOTHE Regimen be used on the body?

Yes, you can use the SOOTHE Regimen on your body. Many Customers use SOOTHE products on their neck and chest. Medical personal, restaurant workers and those in cold harsh climates use the SOOTHE Regimen on their hands or elbows. If your skin does not improve, we suggest that you visit a local dermatologist for further treatment.

What environmental factors can trigger sensitive skin?

There are a number of environmental triggers that can cause sensitivity in skin, including oxidative stress caused by free radicals, climate change, pollution, smoke, smog, sun exposure, friction or just product overload. Even those whose skin is usually calm throughout the rest of the year can experience sensitive skin during the dryer, harsher winter months.
The SOOTHE Regimen helps to reduce dryness and cracked or chapped skin for a calm, healthy-looking complexion every day.

What causes sensitive skin?

The skin’s natural lipid barrier is designed to hold moisture, cool the skin through release of moisture and prevent irritants from penetrating into the skin. When that barrier is compromised, due to genetic predisposition or environmental factors, your skin loses water faster and is more exposed to irritation from external triggers.

Will SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream cause my skin to breakout?

Acne can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes, mechanical friction, bacteria or a change in medications. SOOTHE is formulated to help calm and is less likely to react adversely to your skin. However, if your skin is prone to breakouts, refer to the Solution Tool to discover how the doctors combine the UNBLEMISH Regimen with the SOOTHE Regimen.

To start, follow the directions for the SOOTHE Regimen–read the brochure and patch test all of the products.

Use the UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash (and Paste) like this:
Use UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash once or twice a day to address clogged pores and slight breakouts and calm skin. Always follow with the remainder of your skincare routine.
If skin is not sensitive, you may also lightly exfoliate skin with ENHANCEMENT Micro-Dermabrasion Paste ON WET SKIN.
Tips–if skin feels dry: wipe off-versus rinse off the Gentle Cream Wash, Use the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste 1-3 times a week to buff off flakes and apply more SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment as needed.
If skin feels oily-rinse off the Gentle Cream Wash, use the Paste 1-3 times a week and SKIP Moisture Replenishing Cream.
Those that wear foundation may also like the Mineral Peptide powders to help reduce the oiliness and underlying redness.

What is an emulsifier?

Emulsifiers allow rich oils to be combined with aqueous ingredients creating elegant creams and lotions. Emulsifiers are widely used, but for those with sensitive skin, they can trip the inflammatory cascade. With RF COLD FISSION™, we’re able to give sensitive skin the ingredients it needs in an elegant formulation without the emulsifying ingredients that can cause irritation.

Sunscreen irritates my sensitive skin. Can I skip this step?

People with sensitive skin need to be especially diligent about sun protection because sun exposure can trigger sensitive skin. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 contains only mineral-based sunscreen ingredients (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) that deflect the sun’s rays, keeping the skin’s surface cooler to minimize the appearance of facial redness.

SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is a lightweight formula free of chemical sunscreens, fragrances, dyes or alcohol that can irritate sensitive skin. It’s a great addition to any skincare Regimen, as it conditions skin with Panthenol and Glycerin, helps protect skin’s natural moisture barrier and provides antioxidant benefits with Vitamin E and Licorice Root Extract.

Is there a way to try SOOTHE Regimen first if I’m afraid to use it on my very sensitive skin?

If you have concerns that your skin may be reactive or sensitive to certain ingredients, apply the SOOTHE Regimen on a small area of your skin before introducing it to your face.

Before using SOOTHE for your skincare Regimen, we recommend you test products using the following instructions for three days, three times a day:

  • Apply a small amount of the product on your jawline or neck. If you’re testing the SOOTHE Gentle Cream Cleanser, apply it for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
  • Apply each product on a separate area. When you test again, reapply the products in the same area as originally applied.
  • Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.

If you determine you are sensitive to a product, discontinue use.

How long should I use SOOTHE Regimen?

Those with chronic sensitivity that results in skin reacting to common physiological and environmental stressors may need to be on the SOOTHE Regimen indefinitely. However, if your sensitivity is more occasional than chronic, you may be able to tolerate stronger products once you have kept your sensitive skin under control for at least 60 days. Before making any changes, we recommend you test the products using the following instructions for three days, three times a day:

1. Apply a small amount of the product on your jawline or neck. If you’re testing a cleanser, apply it for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
2. Apply each product on a separate area. When you test again, reapply the products in the same area as originally applied.
3. Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.

If you determine your skin can tolerate more active products, you may begin adding them to your daily skincare routine every other day, building up to daily usage.

When can I expect to see results from SOOTHE Regimen?

With your first use, the SOOTHE Regimen will help relieve your skin of dryness and visible redness. Our clinical results demonstrated a visible improvement in redness, peeling, dryness, and overall irritation due to dry, cracked, or chapped skin in five minutes.

Within days to weeks, depending on the sensitivity of your skin, your skin will feel comfortable, smooth and soft with a visible reduction in facial redness. Over time, the ingredients in the SOOTHE Regimen will help support your natural skin barrier, allowing your skin to become more resilient.

In an independent clinical study, subjects with hyper-sensitive skin achieved the following results:
• REDNESS: 56% reduction after five minutes* and 67% reduction after two weeks
• PEELING: 80% reduction after five minutes* and 80% reduction after two weeks
• DRYNESS: 79% reduction after five minutes* and 74% reduction after two weeks
• STINGING: 60% reduction after five minutes* and 90% reduction after two weeks
• Overall irritation due to dry, cracked, or chapped skin 78% after just five minutes* and 72% reduction after two weeks *Five minute results were using SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment

How does SOOTHE Regimen work?

The SOOTHE Regimen has been carefully formulated with ingredients specifically designed for sensitive skin. SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash emulsifies makeup and other skin impurities. SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment contains the OTCs Allantoin and dimethicone that alleviate minor cuts, burns, and peeling associated with dryness. And RFp3, our proprietary peptide technology that combines peptides with a protease inhibitor to neutralize triggers and pacify irritable skin. Optical filters help reduce the appearance of redness and botanicals comfort dry skin. SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream utilizes unique patent-pending RF COLD FISSION™ to keep ingredients together in an elegant base without the use of emulsifiers. SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 uses only physical sunscreens (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) to deflect damaging ultraviolet rays and keep the surface of the skin cool to help prevent flushing.

Please read the U.S. SOOTHE Regimen brochure or Canada SOOTHE Regimen brochure before using the SOOTHE Regimen. It contains usage instructions for best results.

How do I use REDEFINE ACUTE CARE with SOOTHE Regimen?

ACUTE CARE can be used with the SOOTHE Regimen, but not on areas of sensitivity, redness or irritation. For best results, follow these steps:

1. Before applying ACUTE CARE, cleanse your face with SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash. Skin must be completely clean and dry before you apply ACUTE CARE. Do not use any leave-on products underneath ACUTE CARE, including eye cream.
2. Tear open the pouch and remove ACUTE CARE from the transparent container. Carefully remove the white protective film and do not touch the delicate microstructure. For best results, use immediately after opening.
3. Position ACUTE CARE over the wrinkle area and press the adhesive gently against relaxed skin (do not stretch the skin). Gently press to activate liquid cones and smooth out any bubbles. Do not apply ACUTE CARE over areas of sensitivity, redness or irritation.
4. Follow with the rest of the SOOTHE nighttime Regimen, avoiding the area around ACUTE CARE.

Why doesn’t the SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 contain SHIELDrf?

To best meet the needs of sensitive skin, SOOTHE Mineral Sunscreen uses a combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to help protect the skin from the sun. Physical, inorganic sunscreens are inert on skin and have the added benefit of helping to keep skin surface cool and reduce the appearance of heat-induced redness.
