My New Skincare Routine Going Into 2021
Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As many of you know, I’m obsessed with skincare. My mother is an esthetician, so it’s hard not to geek out over the latest lotions and potions that will give you beautiful skin a naturally gorgeous glow. Going into the new year, I want to focus on continuing to wear less makeup and go for a more natural look. With that said, I definitely want to put more emphasis on a great skincare routine that’ll allow me to forgo makeup as much as possible.
This past year, I wanted to really dive into what was causing me to break out, so I can finally nip it in the bud and focus on addressing any lingering blemishes. I’m happy to report that I finally feel like I’m in a good place, and that I have a newfound goal: battling oncoming fine visible lines and wrinkles. It’s safe to say that I feel ready to for a new skincare routine in order to achieve this.
I knew that I needed to find a legit skincare routine that’ll allow me to maintain my newfound clear skin, while fighting visible fine lines and wrinkles. That’s where the Rodan & Fields REDEFINE Regimen comes in. They just released a groundbreaking dermatology-inspired skincare solution that used their latest innovation to provide clinically demonstrated results. This new regimen is to help with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles + loss of firmness. It’s a 3-step, customized routine that smooths the looks of fine lines as well as deep wrinkles, improves any uneven-looking skin texture, tightens the appearance of pores, while visibly plumping, firming, lifting and sculping. It does so with the help of advanced technologies and Rodan + Fields Multi-Med Therapy in one simple-to-use-regimen. After trying this regimen for a few weeks, I’ll be extensively discussing the research that went behind it, how the products worked for me, and why I personally recommend adopting them into your skincare routine.
First and foremost, the REDEFINE Regimen will allow you to customize your routine to target visible signs of aging and improve skin texture. The Multi-Med Therapy within the REDEFINE Regimen works together for optimum results for both day and night. During the day, the powerful Peptides + Botanical Extracts minimize the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, while the Peptides + Grape & Beet Extracts help visibly firm. At night, the PM products help visibly sculpt, define & lift to improve facial contours thanks to their Peptide Technology plus Retinoid Science.
Dr. Kathy Fields explains further, “In order for the ingredients and formulas to be effective on skin, they must be applied in the right order, so that each step builds on the efficacy of the previous one.” Founders Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields believe that it’s not just about the right ingredients, but about also mixing them in the right proportion in the right formulations that is just as important. When we combine different products that aren’t necessarily formulated or tested to work together, the ingredients may become unstable when they interact with each other, leading to ineffectiveness in delivering benefits to our skin. That’s why having this regimen on your side is nice, since it takes the guesswork out of selecting your skincare routine.
Not just that, but Rodan + Fields conducted research to develop lotion appropriate versions of the AM and PM products and a foaming, creamy cleanser to provide more options to suit each individual consumer. This more customized approach helps each individual with their texture preference and their respected skincare needs. This is ultimately what really drew me in as I’m finally at a place where I’m ready to take a more tailored approach to my skincare routine.
The new + improved REDEFINE Regimen is a 3-step routine that has a customized approached to a skin regimen. The options for the cleanser are: the improved REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser or the new REDEFINE Daily Foaming Cleanser. Next will be the REDEFINE Pore Refining Toner, followed by either the improved AM REDEFINE Triple Defense Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 or the new AM REDEFINE Triple Defense Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 in the morning. Finally, you will then finish off with either the PM REDEFINE Overnight Restorative Cream or the new PM REDEFINE Overnight Reparative Lotion in the evening.
I personally went with the REDEFINE Daily Clay Cleanser, the REDEFINE Overnight Reparative Lotion, and the REDEFINE Triple Defense Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 because my skin tends to run on the oily side. The clay cleanser does an amazing job of gently exfoliating and removing daily impurities, while the reparative lotion and broad-spectrum lotion has a wonderful consistency that doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily. It visibly sculpts out my skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines, while my skin remain blemish-free. Finally, the reformulated REDEFINE Pore Refining Toner minimizes the appearance of pores and helps with promoting natural cell turnover for a smoother-looking skin texture.
As much as I geek out on skincare, I seem to typically forgo eye cream – and I knew that this had to change. I added in the Rodan & Fields Multi-Function Eye Cream into the mix, and it has seriously made me question why I’ve been leaving eye cream out of my routine. It helps minimize the appearance of lines and it does an amazing job of nourishing and brightening the eye area for a more refreshed appearance. It feels so nice and cool to the touch, and really helped to visibly firmed out my eye area – I can’t get enough of it!
If you can’t tell already, I’m so excited about this new line and I can’t wait to continue to adopt it into my new skincare routine. You can purchase the line on their website for $220, as well as the Multi-Function Eye Cream for $70 and they can all be purchased athttps://www.rodanandfields.com/.
