It’s that time of year. It’s back-to-school, whether that means kids are off to high school or college or we’re vacuuming the sand out of the car, buckling down and putting our nose to the grindstone once again. There’s a certain anxiety that accompanies this time of year, as the days get a wee bit shorter, that feeling of getting serious can hit us hard — but there’s also excitement for a new season (TV shows! Pumpkin Spice Lattes! Holidays!).
Reconnecting with people we haven’t seen in months is part of that feeling. When someone says, “How was your summer?” we want to look our best. At Rodan + Fields we believe whole-heartedly in the skin/confidence connection. Getting our skin back in shape — or keeping it looking healthy — can help us feel good about ourselves so we can honestly answer, “Great!” and look radiant while saying so.
Skincare for Teens and Young Adults
If your teens are experiencing blemishes and breakouts, we have the Regimen for them. SPOTLESS is a simple 2-step acne treatment Regimen that eliminates acne bacteria, deep cleans pores and reduces oil. It’s easy to use consistently which is key for controlling existing acne and helping prevent blemishes from forming. It consists of a Daily Acne Wash that gently exfoliates and washes away oil, reducing the appearance of shine and leaving skin clean and refreshed. 5% Benzoyl Peroxide penetrates pores to kill acne bacteria starting the very first day. It’s followed by SPOTLESS Acne Clearing Treatment that delivers an additional 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide that stays on the skin to continue eliminating acne bacteria.
Back-to-school can also mean back to sports practice, so make sure your kids are covered when it comes to sun protection. Our ESSENTIALS Body Sunscreen SPF 30 is a lightweight sunscreen that’s safe for the whole family, it’s water resistant for up to 40 minutes and is non-greasy and non-sticky. Pair it with ESSENTIALS Lip Shield SPF 25 for their lips which need protection too.
Taking Care of Skin in College
If you (or your babies) are going away for the first time, make sure skincare is not left behind. Taking care of your skin when you’re on your own is a healthy habit right up there with doing your own laundry! In addition to a skincare Regimen, there are convenient basics like ESSENTIALS Complete Eye Makeup Remover and ESSENTIALS Instant Makeup Remover Wipes that help keep skin clean, even in a college dorm.
Then, continue caring for skin with Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid SPF 30, our tinted formula that protects while it instantly perfects. It’s the last step of any skincare routine before heading out to meet the friends who you will know the rest of your life, if all goes well.
Finally, for your own skin, perhaps the summer brought out a few dark spots that weren’t there when you went on your first picnic. Check out our REVERSE Brightening Regimen and REVERSE Lightening Regimen that can tackle all sorts of discoloration issues.
Back-to-school season also includes getting back into a routine, whether for you that means eating healthier, sleeping better or working harder. But at Rodan + Fields, it always involves taking care of your skin.
