Skincare Sundays: Protecting your skin during the harsh winter months with Rodan + Fields
We’ve all seen the pictures by now… this past week several states were already covered in snow and nearly all 50 states were already dropping below freezing temperatures. Thanksgiving is around the corner and so are the cold winter months.
Winter can be very damaging to your skin… and that makes sense. During the summer, we are very aware of needing to apply sunscreen because we have less clothing on. We may be at the pool or beach and if you are a parent, you are likely slathering SPF 50+ (as high as the legal limit without a prescription) on your little ones, so you might as well cover up.
But what about during the winter months? The sun can also be very harsh and sunscreen is still necessary. Two areas that are exposed more than any others during the winter are your hands and lips.
So let’s talk about protecting our skin during the winter. Rodan and Fields has unbelievable products to protect your hands and lips.
First up, our hands: this two-step hand cream and sunscreen combo will not only protect your hands from sun damage but reverse damage that might have already occurred.
REDEFINE Hand Treatment Regimen:
- Our hands are among the hardest working and most environmentally vulnerable parts of our bodies. That’s why the backs of people’s hands often look so much older than their faces. To defend against the telltale signs of skin aging, Rodan + Fields created the REDEFINE Hand Treatment Regimen. It visibly brightens, diminishes visible redness and reduces the appearance of brown spots, wrinkles and thin, crepey skin.
- Regimen includes REDEFINE Hand Brightening Treatment and REDEFINE Age Shield Hand Balm
- When it comes to lips, time and the environment take their toll in a broad way. The smooth, naturally voluptuous, sexy, defined lips that nature gives us will, over time, become thinner, flatter, less healthy-looking and more lined. Reclaim or maintain the lips of youth with REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum. Each peptide and antioxidant-rich capsule helps lips retain natural moisturizing factors, smooths lip texture and reduces the appearance of lip wrinkles. (60 capsules are included).
- Because the skin on lips is so thin, this area is highly sensitive and particularly vulnerable to showing signs of dryness and aging. ESSENTIALS Lip Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 25 goes beyond moisturization to provide protective skincare for the lips. This hydrating lip balm soothes, softens and protects lips from the aging and burning effects of the sun with SHIELDrf, an exclusive complex of stabilized avobenzone and anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory colorless carotenoids for effective UVA sunscreen protection. This non-waxy formula, and I may sound a bit scientific here for a second, contains collagen-stimulating peptides to smooth lip texture, lipid molecules for long-term moisturization and dimethicone to protect the delicate moisture barrier. Vitamins A, C and E provide anti-oxidant protection, while shea butter, avocado and sunflower seed oil hydrate and moisturize. 4.25 g/.15 oz. each, available in packs of two.
- ENHANCEMENTS Lip Micro-Dermabrasion is an effective and convenient exfoliation stick created specifically for one of the areas of your face most prone to showing early signs of aging: your lips. It removes dead skin cells and exfoliates flaky lip tissues in just a few easy swipes. This easy to use, conditioning treatment makes lips look and feel more defined and youthful by renewing the surface and reducing lipstick bleeding. 2.0 g/.07 oz
