- Avoid sleeping on your side, or on your stomach, with your face planted into the pillow. Sleeping on your back with your face up helps to prevent wrinkles better than Botox. Dr.Rodan, Cosmetic Dermatologist and co-creator of Proactiv for acne and the Rodan + Fields Premium Skin care products can look at 80% of her patients and she can tell which side they sleep on based on the wrinkle creases on the face. There are pillows that are actually designed to keep your head cradled so you remain on your back.
- Avoid using straws. The puckering formation of lips on the straw can contribute to wrinkles above the upper lip,and below the lower lip. Why do you think smokers get so many wrinkles?
- Exercise for better skin. However, avoid high impact workouts. There is actually such a thing as Runner's Face. The matrix beneath the skin surface breaks down, and it causes sagging skin.
- Eat a heart healthy diet and your skin will reap the benefits as well.
- Sun damage is greatest cause of wrinkles. Regular use of sunscreen is a must.
Here are a few quick and simple tips to prevent facial wrinkles:
The big day is here, the big event....you want to look your very best! Murphy's Law: you wake up and gaze into the mirror to see a big, hot red swollen, sore pimple on the end of your nose! Ughhhhhhh! What' s a girl (or guy)to do??
Here is a quick zit fix plan :
*DO NOT SQUEEZE THE AREA! I repeat, as tempted as you may be to do so, do not squeeze it!
*wrap an ice cube in a dry clean white cotton wash cloth and place it on the troubled area for about 15 minutes to take down the swelling
*wash with a sulfur based lotion Note: Rodan + Fields Unblemish Acne Wash active ingredient is Sulfur 3 %
*use a toner with Hydroquinone which fades the red appearance Note: Rodan + Fields has two toners to choose from, one is called the Spot Fading toner which has 2% hydroquinone, and the other is called the Clarifying toner which has witch hazel and glycolic acid in it. Glycolic acid unclogs the pores.
*apply benzoyl peroxide Note: Rodan + Fields Unblemish Dual Intensive Acne Treatment has 5% benzoyl peroxide and it is delievered in a dual action manner to get it into the cells so it can kill the bacteria which is causing the unsightly issue.
Rodan + Fields is currently rated as the # 1 Premium Acne Skin Care product in the USA, because people use it and get excellent results.
Also, I recommend Rodan + Fields Micro Dermabrasion paste. It can also be used every other day to help remove blackheads, which are clogged pores with the skins oils.
I am here to tell you that growing older and experiencing the skin changes of wrinkles, large pores and brown spots can be battled! Yes---we can grow old gracefully and continue to look good without plastic surgery....and why shouldn't we?? Forty is the new 30, fifty is the new 40, Sixty is the new 45!!! Truly, when I got my hair cut and styled and had "low-lights" done this weekend, I felt great. This idea of looking good and feeling good can happen with good skin care. I have experienced it first hand as I approach my one year "Rodanniversary", which marks one full year of consistent use of Rodan and Fields Premium Skin care. I am debating whether I will post my one year BEFORE and AFTER pictures on FACEBOOK, but as I look at the pictures myself, I can see how much my skin has indeed improved.
This weekend during the Super Bowl, the lady owner of the Broncos did a speech after the game. Everyone in the room I was watching with, gasped and commented that she looked like the "Joker"since her face and mouth appeared stretched in such a way to remove the wrinkles! My Son was at his own Super Bowl party, and when I asked him what the young people in the room thought of the lady owner of the Broncos, he said they all felt like she looked like a "plastic face." I wish she could have found Rodan + Fields Premium Skin Care and used it consistently to become a younger looking version of herself....because I get it, she wants to look good, feel good.
I was thinking today that Drs.Rodan + Fields have many more years of practicing cosmetic dermatology as well as the resources to keep doing research to help women (and men) to look good and feel better! That's why I chose this business, as I sincerely believe in the products and the benefit they provide to people. Both the products and the business are EMPOWERING.....changing skin, changing lives!
Look Good, Feel Good and Have a Great week!
Dr, Younger You
Do you ever look in the mirror and wonder how you can make your skin look better? What about waking up on the morning of a day with a big event planned in which you want to look your best, and you cringe to see a large pimple on your nose or puffy dark circles under your eyes? Ughhhh.....Been there, done that--I understand! It is a natural desire of most people to want to "heal" their skin flaws and maintain great-looking skin. We take notice when someone has beautiful skin. I am here to tell you there is help and hope to get the skin you want and wake every day looking in the mirror and saying: "Wow, my skin is looking good!" The biggest compliment is when others start to notice your skin, and ask you what you are doing.
Transformation of your skin can occur with the right products, used consistently over time. It takes at least 60 days to see visible changes of the skin to occur based on the natural cycle of skin turnover. Any miraculous "cure"out there, showing someone putting some magic potion on their skin and claiming skin transformation before your eyes is just not realistic.
Doctors Rodan and Fields are cosmetic dermatologists and have seen thousands of patients in their practices. With their combined experience, they were able to develop an algorithm to determine the treatment for the most common skin conditions they encountered and treated. It is called the Solution Tool. As an Executive Consultant of Rodan and Fields, I have access to the same algorithm and Solution Tool to help determine the best skin care treatments for my customers. The Solution Tool has YOU, the customer, answer step by step questions in order to determine which regimen is suggested to TRANSFORM YOUR skin concerns.
Please find the Solution Tool on the Right hand corner of my website http;//dryoungeryou.myrandf.com. Once you click on the solution tool picture, it will take you to Doctors Rodan and Fields, and there you will click the Start Consultation blue button. Answer the series of questions. YOUR Transformation regimen will be determined. You can leave your email and your suggested transformation profile will be sent to me so I can follow up!
