Let the countdown begin! Prom season is coming up fast, and you are probably excited and a little nervous. As the product-expert-in-residence at Rodan + Fields, I can share one thing you can focus on for the ultimate confidence boost: your skin! Whether you have a couple of months or a couple of hours before the big night, take these steps to feel and look your best.
Two Months Before Prom
You’ve got plenty of time for an incredible transformation!
If you suffer from breakouts, start using Rodan + Fields SPOTLESS for Teen and Young Adult Acne. This 2-step Regimen starts working on Day 1. But it’s most effective when you use it consistently over time. Commit to SPOTLESS twice a day, every day, and in two months you’ll see full results.
It’s always the right time to eat right, drink lots of water and get enough beauty sleep. These healthy habits make a huge difference in your skin all year round, and it’s never too late to start.
Two Weeks Before Prom
Get quick, noticeable results with these skincare products.
You can still see benefits even if you start the Rodan + Fields SPOTLESS Regimen now. It’s totally worth it.
If you haven’t been great about taking off your makeup every single night, ESSENTIALS and ESSENTIALS are your skin’s new BFFs. They’re a quick way to remove makeup along with the everyday pollution, oil and dirt that gets trapped on the surface of your skin. All these things make your skin a breeding ground for bacteria.
For softer, smoother skin on your body, now’s the time for Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. If you’re new to exfoliation, apply this gentle salt-and-sugar scrub once a week to slough off dead skin cells. (You can also use it on your face.) Then apply Active Hydration Body Replenish and your skin will feel positively silky!
Two Days Before Prom
Try a fast, game-changing “glow-to”.
Tan On Demand, anyone? Light, oil-free ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan will give you sun-kissed color — without damaging UV rays — in two to four hours. It’s easy to apply, dries quickly and you’ll have time for a touch-up on the day of.
Two Hours Before Prom
Get gorgeous with these finishing touches.
Let the excitement begin! After you wash your face, apply Active Hydration Serum to keep your skin dewy — but not oily — all night long.
Then instantly even your skin tone with Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid. It comes in six shades that you can use alone or mix together. Don’t forget about contouring — a little goes a long way. And set your finish with ENHANCEMENTS Mineral Peptides Powder so your look survives all that dancing!
Have a magical evening!
