Discover how to use Rodan + Fields' Regimens, enhancements and more during this fall season.

Woman with her Fall Skincare Routine

As the days get shorter and the leaves fall from the trees, there’s a lot to get excited for: The upcoming holiday season, time off from work or school, more time with friends and family, and so much more. The not so exciting part? Dropping temperatures that leave skin looking and feeling dull and dry.

In the same way we switch out our wardrobes to honor the changing seasons, we need to switch up our skincare routines, too. With the right Regimens enhancements, essentials and more, you can easily maintain a hydrated, balanced complexion all fall and winter long.

Here’s how to create the perfect fall skincare routine.

Find the right Regimen

Rodan + Fields has a handful of regimens, and all of them serve different purposes. The Soothe Regimen might be the right fit for you if your skin tends to get irritated and red when cold weather hits, since its goals is to gentle protect sensitive skin with RFp2 peptide technology, which relieves visible redness, colloidal oatmeal, which is great for dry, itchy, eczema-prone skin, and artichoke leaf extract and patented RF3 Antioxidant Complex.

If you deal with fine lines and wrinkles (or want to prevent them), the Rodan + Fields’ Redefine Regimen, which targets signs of aging, might be a better fit. This best-selling anti-aging skincare routine visibly lifts, sculpts, and firms thanks to peptide technology and botanical extracts that help minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles and help visibly firm throughout the day, and exclusive peptide technology + retinoid science that help to visibly sculpt, define and lift to improve the appearance of facial contours while you sleep.

Try the Total RF Serum

The Total RF Serum is an excellent complement to any of the Regimens available, or it can be used alone. This comprehensive anti-aging serum features RF TriEnergy Complex, a blend of Ayurvedic Sandalwood, Indian Kino Extract + Omega-6 Fatty Acid to energize skin, which energizes millions of surface skin cells by 200% to address all key signs of skin aging.

Total RF Serum also includes R+F’s patented RF3 antioxidant complex, which fortifies skin to be more resilient against environmental aggressors, calcium, which helps with firmness, and ceramides, which help fortify the skin’s barrier to retain moisture. 

Use the Active Hydration Serum

Rodan + Fields’ bestselling Active Hydration Serum is an excellent addition to your fall and winter skincare routine as it instantly boosts hydration in the skin by 200% and locks in moisture on the surface of the skin. This serum is an excellent addition to any regimen, but it can also be used on its own.

If you’re adding the Active Hydration Serum to a regimen, add it before the treatment step. This will be step three in the Redefine, Reverse, and Unblemish, and step two in Spotless, Soothe, and Recharge. When layering with Total RF Serum, be sure to add the Active Hydration Serum beforehand to boost benefits.  When beginning use of any new product or when layering products for the first time, it’s always a good idea to do a patch test.  See instructions here

Slather on the Essentials Body Moisturizer

It’s no secret that colder temperatures can lead to dry, itchy, flaky skin. Enter the Essentials Body Moisturizer, a lightweight lotion with calming RF-DCell Technology and hydrating Jojoba and Sunflower Seed Oil Extract, which tackles dry, flaky skin and helps it retain moisture for a smooth and refreshed feel.

Keep your hands and body moisturized with Active Hydration Body Replenish

If you live in a part of the country where it gets very cold, you know that hands tend to get very dry and itchy in the winter. While keeping them covered up with gloves is always a good idea, the right moisturizer can help too — like Rodan + Fields’ Active Hydration Body Replenish. This moisturizer, which offers all over hydration and younger-looking, younger-acting skin instantly hydrates thanks to ingredients like 3D3P Molecular Matrix, glycerin, which helps moisturize and shield environmental aggressors my maintaining the moisture barrier, hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrates.

The Active Hydration Body Replenish is also an excellent addition to your self-care routine, as it keeps your entire body moisturized and nourished — something we all need right now!

Work out those fine lines with the Redefine Multifunction Eye Cream

If you’re dealing with fine lines, bags, or general dullness around your eyes, give the Redefine Multifunction Eye Cream a try. This intensive anti-aging eye cream visibly firms and lifts to improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and crow’s feet.

This is all thanks to ingredients like botanical grape extract, which helps minimize the appearance of lines and winkles, botanical daisy flower extract, which helps nourish and brighten for younger-looking skin, vitamins C+F, which help strengthen the skin’s barrier and visibly firm, and antioxidants, which protect against environmental aggressors.

Slough away dead skin cells with the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste

Cold weather means dry, itchy, dead skin, which is why the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste can be so beneficial. This gentle face and body scrub exfoliates dead skin cells for bright, smoother, more vibrant-looking skin. This paste contains vitamin C, which brightens to reveal younger, more vibrant-looking cells, and vitamin E and Bisabolol, which calm the skin for brighter and smoother skin.

The fall and winter don’t have to be disastrous for your skin. Armed with the right products, you can emerge from these harsher months with bright, younger, more vibrant skin than ever. Stay warm out there!
