Myth Busters: You Can Never Have Too Much of a Good Thing

“When it comes to skincare, there can definitely be too much of a good thing. For best results, always use products as directed and remember that more doesn’t always equal better. For example, using an anti-age product three times a day won’t get you triple benefits, most likely it will leave you with red, irritated skin. Over time, this can even lead to conditions like cosmetic intolerance syndrome. So follow the rules for the best results. And if you do find yourself with irritated skin, back off for a day or two to give your skin a breather, and when you do start back up, make sure to start slowly and work up to twice-daily application.”DermRF


Myth Busters: Results Last Forever

“If you stopped highlighting your hair would it stay blond? Not for long. The same is true for skincare. You need to use products to make them work and there are no shortcuts or miracles. It takes consistent and constant use to get and maintain benefits. So if your skin is improving, don’t slack off—it means your skincare is working. Stick with your regimen and you’ll continue to see results.”DermF

Mixing and Matching Your Skincare

“Your regular family doc prescribes drugs carefully, taking care not to combine medications that would either inhibit effectiveness, or cause dangerous symptoms when used together. When it comes to skincare … same rules apply. Skincare regimens that have been formulated to work together to achieve results should be used together. Mixing and matching brands or products to create your own regimen could result in a lack of benefit as well as skin sensitivity and other undesired side effects. For best results, use as directed and remember, consistency is key.”DermRF

The Doctor is in …

By Dr. Kathy Fields

As a dermatologist, I learned early on that fun in the sun can translate to aging and skin cancer. But as a wife and mom, between family trips to the lake, hiking adventures and outdoor parties, summer is hands down my favorite time of year. I refuse to give up on the activities I love, but I won’t compromise my skin’s health either. Here’s how I’ve learned to enjoy the best of both worlds …

1. Be in the Know. Knowing what to look for when it comes to SPF and using products correctly is the most important thing you can do. Here’s what to watch out for:

  • Use only “broad spectrum” sunscreens (that provide proportionate UVA and UVB protection … all R+F sunscreens fit the bill).
  • Don’t get hosed by “waterproof” claims. (Even the best are only “water resistant,” so always reapply after getting wet).
  • Stay inside the safety zone. Only an SPF of 15 to 50+ can lay claim to reducing the risks of sun exposure. And even when using SPF, don’t stay out longer than you would if unprotected.

2. Beat the Heat—Even on the Go. Be prepared sunup to sundown and do what I do: keep the following “Sun-Emergency Kit” on hand:

  • ESSENTIALS Body Sunscreen
  • ESSENTIALS Lip Shield
  • ANTI-AGE Age Shield Hand Balm
  • Your favorite R+F SPF
  • Plus an extra pair of sunglasses, a broad-brimmed hat, a large lightweight scarf and an umbrella
  • And two aspirin to take immediately if you do get a sunburn.

With the real facts about sunscreen usage and these items on board, you’ll be protected from the elements come rain or shine! So get sun-savvy and never leave home without your “Sun-Emergency Kit”—Doctor’s orders!

Myth Busters: Dull Skin Is a Normal Part of Aging

“Dull skin is not your destiny; it’s actually an effect of sun damage and can be reversed with the right regimen. We recommend products that not only gently exfoliate but also include hydroquinone to lighten and brighten skin. Combine that with consistent use of sunscreen all year long, and smooth skin will be an ageless quality.”DermRF
