Coffee with Nurse Mary: Why do I have age spots when I’m never in the sun?

Learn the difference between UVA Rays and UVB Rays.

Think you’re not out in the sun? Think again. On an average day, do you:

  • Drive to work around 9 a.m.?
  • Leave the house or office to run errands or go out for lunch?
  • Drive home around 5 p.m.?

If you’re like us and answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’re getting at least 20 minutes of sun every day, and that doesn’t include sitting near a window or spending additional time outdoors. Your best bet is to assume you’ll get some exposure, and make sunscreen a daily habit – rain or shine.

By Mary Radford RN, Director of the RF Connection

As of December 2012, the FDA will be enforcing new sunscreen regulations in an effort to help people stay better protected from the sun. At Rodan + Fields, we couldn’t be happier about the new regulations. We’ve been on our soapbox for years and are glad the FDA is finally holding companies to a higher standard. Here’s the 411 on what the new regulations mean for SPF:

  • Only SPF 15-50+: This is the range that can claim to reduce the risks associated with sun exposure. The days of SPF 90 are over – the highest you’ll find is SPF 50+.
  • More effective broad spectrum sunscreens: Only formulations with proportionate UVA and UVB coverage can claim to be broad spectrum.
  • No more waterproof sunscreens: Even the best sunscreens are only water-resistant, so always reapply after getting wet.

Having formulated RF sunscreens to the Doctors’ high standards from the beginning, it was no surprise that all our SPF products have already passed the new regulations with flying colors.

Stay protected from head to toe by adding these great sunscreen products to your broad spectrum regimen sunscreen:

Remember, the sun is out 365 days a year. Our Rodan + Fields UV Wristbands are the perfect way to remind you to be diligent with sun protection. Ask your Consultant for more details.

ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan

Protecting skin from the sun is a must, but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve a sun-kissed glow the healthy way. The lightweight, oil-free, mess-free sunless tanning foam applies easily and dries quickly. The effective dual-active formula ensures even, natural-looking color without exposure to the harmful UVA and UVB rays. It contains Rodan + Fields’ RF-Dcell technology, which is derived from dormant narcissus bulb extract, to “quench” the rate of cell hyper-proliferation and extend the duration of the sunless tan. Antioxidant vitamins A, C and E protect skin from free radical damage. Click here for tips from Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields on achieving best results.

ESSENTIALS Lip Shield 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 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.
