Common Questions about Winter Skin


~ I’m using the ANTI-AGE Regimen as directed and my skin has recently become dry and a little flaky. Should I stop using the Daily Cleansing Mask?

~ Skin and skincare needs change over time. Dryness could be the results of a few things: changes in diet, hydration, weather or activity levels. The ANTI-AGE Regimen helps to increase cell turnover. As new cells push up toward the skin’s surface, the old cells are forced to fall off and unfortunately some cells won’t let go. As a result, skin appears dry and flaky. We suggest that you gently massage the ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste  (I myself, LOVE this, and Bill also uses it, too!!) on wet skin one to three times a week as tolerated in place of the ANTI-AGE Daily Cleansing Mask to lift off flaky skin.

If your skin still feels dry, we recommend applying ESSENTIALS Moisturize with Melaslow several times a day, as needed.

~ My sister told me to wear sunscreen in the winter but it’s snowing and cloudy—what’s the point?

~ The aging rays of the sun, UVA rays, are present 365 days a year, rain or shine, sunup to sundown. They are as strong at 7 a.m. as they are at noon and even 7 p.m. They are so powerful they can penetrate clouds, rain, snow, glass, some plastics and clothing (especially loose cotton weaves and wet fabrics).

UVA rays destroy our collagen and elastin, causing wrinkles and sagging over time. UVA rays also stimulate pigment-producing melanocytes to release brown melanin, resulting in “liver spots” on the face, hands and chest—a true hallmark of aged skin.

Take your sister’s advice and protect your skin year-round with a Rodan + Fields broad spectrum sunscreen that is designed for your skin type every morning before you leave the house, and reapply throughout the day.

The full body sunscreen sounds great! Being a Florida girl myself, I am always on the lookout for lightweight formulas!

That a wonderful Post, and extremely informative. Love how you have it all in order & step by step, and everything you say I know is true and I should probably doing all that & then some, BUT when you only have one check coming in the house & a disability check things get rather tight especially when you know necessities needs to be looked after first. I guess I'm just going to grow old and wrinkly ~sniff-sniff~ Sorry babes it's just a sign of the times.
