On last week's blog, I featured the Amp MD Roller by Rodan + Fields. After rolling, I recommend using the Night Renewing Serum capsules which are filled with a potent over the counter strength dose of RETINOL. What is RETINOL? It is a commonly used cosmetic ingredient in skin care products because it is effective. Retinol is Vitamin A, and it does an excellent job improving wrinkles and pore size . Retinol increases collagen production making the skin look plumper and fine lines smoother. Vitamin A is an antioxidant, and basically reverses skin damage by signaling the cells to behave like healthy cells. In some individuals with very sensitive skin, retinol can cause irritation and redness, but it is usually worse with prescription strength doses. Retinol works well in combination with Vitamin C, which is also found in anti-aging skin products. As a side note, retinol and vitamin C are applied together in step 3 of Rodan + Fields REVERSE regimen which is formulated to brighten the skin and reverse brown spots caused by sun damage. If you purchase the Amp MD Roller, be sure you also get the Night Renewing Serum blue capsules. Once opened and applied after rolling, the retinol makes your skin feel so smooth and the effects of the application lasts while you sleep for the night,
Drs. Rodan + Fields(makers of Proactiv) have developed the AMP MD tool to help firm the facial and neck skin in the privacy of your own bathroom. This patent-pending hand held device is used with Rodan + Fields premium Skin care products to enhance results. It is very easy to use and is not motorized nor does it require batteries or electric. It is clinically proven to lead to a more youthful-looking appearance with routine use. It is used in combination with REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum capsules. The system comes with the little jar of 60 capsules. Each little blue capsule contains a potent serum filled with time-release PEPTIDES and RETINOL. Please see my earlier Blog on what peptides are and how they work. Recall that peptides have healing effects and lead to diminished wrinkles and increase in skin firmness. Retinol helps shed dead skin to visibly improve skin texture and minimize the appearance of pores. I absolutely love this little tool. Every gal (and guy) should have one! Plus, the Docs thought of everything by including the reusable Cleansing vial and a 2 month supply of purification tablets for infection control purposes. The 4 piece system retails at $200.00.

As a middle age woman in my fifties, I began to see the signs of aging start with crow's feet and wrinkles in my forties that I am sure were a result of sun damage in my younger years. I did the baby oil tanning when I was growing up, and we did not have the sunscreens like we do nowadays. Thankfully, nowadays, we have cosmetic pharmaceuticals available to help reverse the damage from years of sun exposure. I have forehead lines and laugh lines--and I have "earned" those lines and they make me who I am. But by using Rodan + Fields Premium Skin Care products, I am looking fresher and have skin that is foundation free. For me, it is about feeling as great as I can for my age, without changing my face with injectables or surgery. Rodan + Fields (makers of Proactiv) are middle age WOMEN cosmetic Dermatologists who have created a line of products and tools to address the most common aging skin concerns. With consistent use, you will get results. The products are clinically proven and third party Dermatologist tested--this means they work!

Breaking News from CNN: President Obama recently signed a bill that prohibits selling and distributing products like shower gels, facial cleansers, and toothpastes that contain tiny little beads. The microbeads are tiny plastic particles that are not biodegradable, and have been found to be polluting our waterways and also are being consumed by some marine life. The amount found in our country's waterways has been reported as 8 trillion, and the volume is enough to coat the surface of 300 tennis courts everyday!
Rodan + Field's premium skin care products do not contain microbeads. The Rodan + Field product used for exfoliating is called Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. It is oil free. It gently smooths skin and helps facilitate skin turnover. Its key ingredients are sugar and salt which exfoliate and Vit C and E which are antioxidants. It also contains caprylic/capric triglycerides, dimethicone and butylene glycol which moisturize the skin.
The grainy particles of sugar and salt are in a bright yellow base. The paste lasts a very long time, and with regular use leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and glowing. A must have item in your bathroom, and environmentally safe!
