Regimen Add-On Products You’ll Definitely Want to Try

Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream.

We all love finding a new go-to product, especially something simple that delivers strong results. With so many products available, getting recommendations for a product to try can help narrow it down. It’s even better if they exceed our expectations! Rodan + Fields products deliver strong results, and now is the time for me to reveal my wee but mighty favorite add-on products and why I cherish them. Warning: You may find yourself buying extras to make sure you never run out or to share as gifts!

Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream

Eye area 101: Your eye area is the first place to show aging. Very thin skin, minimal oil glands, slowing cell turnover and the natural aging process that reduces collagen and elastin result in dry, wrinkled, drooping skin as the years pass.

Why this add-on? Everything about this eye product is small: the packaging, the application amount and the time that it takes for results. Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream uses the right lightweight but emollient moisturizers and a unique ingredient combination of Vitamins C and F, Grape and Daisy Botanical Extracts and Antioxidants for a youthful appearance. It maintains and helps strengthen the skin’s barrier around the eyes to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as nourish and brighten the skin. I love the visible firmness and better contour this product brings out, helping my eyes look more youthful over time. Be sure and take transformation pictures if you try it out!

Eye care tips:

  1. Use the ring finger (with the lightest touch) to apply a tear drop size of the eye cream product under the eye and over crow’s feet. Pat any remaining product on the upper lid above the crease.
  2. Try not to squint, which can deepen wrinkle lines. Instead, adjust your font size, and wear your prescription glasses and/or sunglasses.
  3. Don’t rub the eye area — rubbing and adding pressure will stretch the skin and cause sagging or under-eye puffiness. Use a makeup remover on your eyes before cleansing to avoid rubbing. The Essentials Complete Eye Makeup Remover on a gauze pad will gently but effectively remove eye makeup, even waterproof mascara. If your eyes ever feel itchy, determine with your doctor if this is an eye issue or skin issue and seek their advice.

Refresh+ Dry Shampoo

Oily hair 101: Your scalp has glands that produce sebum (oil) to condition and support your skin’s barrier and to strengthen hair for durability. Too much oil flattens hair, makes it look greasy and emits a stale odor. Everyone’s oil production and lifestyle are different and as we age, oil production wanes. Heat, over-drying the scalp with sulfates, washing hair too often, hormonal changes, exercise, sweating, some medications, or wearing a hat or helmet contribute to excess oil production. Washing hair on a regular basis does not have to mean every day (try every three or four days).

Why this add-on? No time to shampoo, dry and style? Hair looking a bit oily today? No problem. Whether you washed your hair yesterday or four days ago, you are just a few sprays away from instantly voluminous and clean-smelling hair. Refresh+ Dry Shampoo is safe for color and chemically treated hair and doesn’t contain sulfates, parabens or dyes. It’s an ultra-fine dry formula that balances the scalp and absorbs excess oil, sweat and odor for revived, refreshed hair between wash days. The formulation moisturizes and soothes the scalp with Chamomile Extract and Rice Starch to immediately absorb oils without clogging pores. This is my new go-to dry shampoo because it’s not over-drying to my scalp and doesn’t leave any white residue — not to mention the smell is refreshing and not overpowering. Whether my hair is clean or oily, it always adds volume and fullness.

To apply this dry shampoo and revive your hair, shake the can and simply lift the hair in sections as you spray 6-10” (15-25 cm) away from dry hair throughout the root area, focusing on the crown and sides of the head. Wait 30 seconds then massage thoroughly with fingers and style as usual. Voila!

When it comes time to wash your hair, depending on your concerns, Rodan + Fields has two haircare regimens that can help! The Smooth+ Regimen hydrates and repairs dry damaged strands for softer, shinier, more manageable frizz-free hair. The Volume+ Regimen boosts thickness, repairs and minimizes hair fall due to breakage for maximum density. Both regimens reenergize and nourish the scalp for healthier-looking hair instantly and over time.

Enhancements Active Hydration Serum 

Dry skin 101: Skin doesn’t have to be visibly dry to be dehydrated. All skin types (including oily and blemish prone skin) can benefit from hydration. Dry skin is more sensitive, prone to lines and wrinkles, and less receptive to skincare products. With age, skin is no longer capable of maintaining moisture as well as youthful skin and requires more maintenance. Well-hydrated skin retains a better barrier function and more elasticity to help achieve radiant, youthful-looking skin. Aging skin requires more hydration to perform optimally, and it can become more difficult for skin to take in hydration or other skincare ingredients.

Why this add-on? A dropper full of Enhancements Active Hydration Serum works immediately and lasts all day bringing vital hydration to the skin no matter the environment. This serum is a layering super-serum that utilizes our patent-pending 3D3P Molecular Matrix to deliver an elevated level of Glycerin and cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid in an elegant, lightweight formula. Whenever I use this serum, my skin is immediately softer, smoother and more radiant-looking, and continues to improve over time. It provides a prominent level of continuous hydration by pulling water from the atmosphere to nourish and replenish skin.

Dry skin can also benefit from gentle exfoliation, which allows the serum to reach the skin’s surface once dry skin cells are buffed away and get the ingredients where they need to be for better results immediately and over time. Prior to using the Active Hydration Serum, try using the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste on damp skin for a gentler exfoliation as the salt and sugar granules melt during the massage. Get to hydrating!
