Here is what I have learned thus far, by reading about it, using it and by talking to other consultants. As you recall, I explained in my article active-hydration-serum-by-dr-katie-rodan-dr-kathy-fields.html that AHS is a layering "super serum" that boosts the performance of any of the the Rodan + Fields skin regimens. Say what? Yes, the clinically proven skin regimens formulated by the Doctors Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields can work better than they already have been proven to work. That is Incredible.
The research shows that when using the AHS, the skin's hydration is increased by 200%, thereby leading to younger-looking, younger-acting skin. The research showed that when used with the R + F anti-aging line, called REDEFINE, 100% reported having more radiant skin, and 96% had younger-looking skin. The REVERSE REGIMEN users (for brown spots/skin damage) reported 96% fewer fine lines, and 70% reported less visible pores. Do you suffer from acne? AHS can be used with the UNBLEMISH regimen. The acne user that added AHS reported 88% less oily skin in the T-zone, and 81% reported less dry skin. Finally, for sensitive skin users of SOOTHE regimen, 95% saw visibly firmer skin and 86% noticed fewer fine lines. Those are great percentages.

Here are tips for optimal performance when applying ACTIVE HYDRATION SERUM. It is made to apply at night, especially if you have oily or combination skin, but for those of you with dry skin, it can be applied twice daily, bothin the morning and at night. AHS works best when layered under a moisturizer or other skin care product. And it is best to apply after cleansing and toning you skin. If you are not aware, REDEFINE, REVERSE, and UNBLEMISH regimens all contain a liquid toner as Step 2. For SOOTHE regimen, AHS is applied before STEP 2. It is recommended you adjust the dosage based on the "thirst" of your skin. There is no need to wait for the AHS to dry before adding the moisturizer. It makes sense that the moisturizer locks the ACTIVE HYDRATION SERUM into the layers of the skin. If you use it once a day, it should last for 2 months. It has a small amount of light fragrance. It is recommended to avoid eye lids and lips. ( I did hear several consultants say it was making their lips less dry, I guess they did not follow directions!). Any initial stickiness will disappear as it dries. And it is ok to use on the neck, chest, and hands. It is not designed to be a used alone product, but once again it works with a moisturizer to lead to smoother, softer, more radiant looking skin.
I have been using Rodan + Fields premium skin care since 2015 on my face, so I found that the amount of serum that comes up in the clear dropper was too much for me. What I am saying is I believe that the skin on my face is not terribly in need of hydration. Therefore, I scaled back to applying just a few drops on my face, especially on the deeper laugh lines and forehead wrinkles. Recall the AHS has glycerin and hyaluronic acid. In my article, hyaluronic-acid-in-skincare-and-in-acute-care-patches-by-rodan-fields.html I explain what Hyaluronic acid is, and how it works to fill in deep wrinkles. In just a few days of using ACTIVE HYDRATION SERUM, I do think the deeper wrinkles look improved. The serum is designed to also have a cumulative effect, so I know it will get better with continued and consistent use. I must admit I noticed the sticky feeling, but cutting back has improved that effect. Like most of R+F products, they are designed so that a little but goes a long way.
I really love it on my hands! In my article hands-down-your-hands-can-tell-your-age.html I explain how aging can give away a lady's age. I also did an article nothing-ages-you-like-bony-veiny-crepy-age-spotted-hands.html. Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, here is an added answer to fixing your bony, crepy hands. Mine are looking better with a drop or two on each hand after I apply toner. I have noticed a big difference in a few days, and it is fast and easy to do, and absorbs quickly, which is why it works for me. My hands are obviously very "thirsty."
You know where else I love to apply AHS? Seriously, I would love to bathe in the stuff, LOL. The other area I am also applying it to is my upper thigh skin. I was noticing aging of my skin there despite regular use of moisturizer. Wow, I noticed a big difference right away. Once again, fast absorption of some "thirsty" skin. And it makes the skin of your thighs super soft! Maybe I should have kept this area a secret...oh well! As I learn more, I will continue to share!
