How long can I use REVERSE Brightening Regimen?
There is no limit to how long you can use the REVERSE Brightening Regimen. However, once you have addressed your skin dullness and/or discoloration concerns, you may choose to transition to another Rodan + Fields Regimen if you have additional skincare concerns. Frequently, REVERSE Brightening Regimen Customers choose to transition to our REDEFINE Regimen for the appearance of lines, pores and loss of firmness, but may transition back to REVERSE Brightening Regimen as needed for brighter skin.

I’m using REVERSE Brightening and my skin is dry. What should I do?
The REVERSE Brightening Regimen brightens with Kojic Acid and Bearberry Extract, and also exfoliates skin with Alpha-hydroxy Acids to gently remove dulling, dead skin cells for a smooth, fresh complexion. This assists in lifting the darkness off the skin to help rapidly develop brighter skin. If skin is feeling dry, simply add a moisturizer over the Dual Active Brightening Complex. We suggest either the SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment or SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream.

What is the difference between the REVERSE Brightening Regimen and REVERSE Lightening Regimen?
The two Regimens feature different key ingredients to tackle the full range of skin discoloration concerns due to sun damage, hormones and other factors.
  • REVERSE Brightening features Vitamin C and Retinol to help to reveal brighter skin by evening out dullness, discoloration and skin tone — often the first signs of aging.
  • REVERSE Lightening features 2% Hydroquinone to gradually lighten stubborn, persistent, excessive pigmentation, including dark marks and age spots.
What products can I use on the off times while I ramp up with REVERSE Brightening Regimen?
We recommend that you use mild cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens as you ramp up to using the REVERSE Brightening Regimen twice a day. Avoid other products containing Retinols, Alpha-hydroxy Acids such as Glycolic, or any scrubs and mechanical brushes, as these can result in irritation. The SOOTHE Regimen is a good option.

What REDEFINE products can I use with REVERSE Brightening Regimen?
People who use REVERSE Brightening Regimen to address the appearance of unwanted dullness and help develop brighter skin, as well as reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, may also enjoy REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum and REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream. If you have built up to twice-a-day usage of the REVERSE Brightening Regimen, you can introduce REDEFINE AMP MD System.

Can REVERSE Brightening Regimen be used on the neck and décolletage?
It’s not just your face that shows the effects of environmental aging, so don’t stop at your neck when applying the REVERSE Brightening Regimen. Make sure to continue onto your décolletage to help reveal brighter skin. However, be aware that the skin is more delicate in areas such as the neck and décolletage, so you may need to reduce the frequency of use.

Can I still suntan or use a tanning bed while using REVERSE Brightening Regimen?
Regardless of your skin type or concern, we strongly advise against the practice of sun tanning or using a tanning bed. Both are known to increase the risk of skin cancer and premature aging of the skin. When attempting to reduce the appearance of dull skin with the REVERSE Brightening Regimen, it is especially important to apply and reapply REVERSE Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen as directed. For streak-free, sunless color, we recommend ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan.
