Skincare - A History of Innovation

Skincare has really come along way over the past few decades.

In the 50's it wasn't uncommon to see women using cold cream as their nightly skincare regimen.

The 60's brought in moisturizing beauty bars while the 70's moved onto Retinoids like retinal and other Vitamin A products.

In the 80's, it was Vitamin C and alpha hydroxy acids that were all the rage. 

The 90's continued to move forward with Peptides and their awesome anti-aging benefits. 

Today, we’re seeing at-home alternatives to derm-office practices dominating as the latest beauty breakthroughs.

Inspired by tools Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields (makers of Proavtiv AND Rodan + Fields) doctors use in their practices...Rodan + Fields is at the forefront of the anti-aging skincare movement.

Rodan + Fields brings the best of the dermatologist office home with noninvasive, at-home alternatives.

REDEFINED Regimen with the REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator
The REDEFINE MACRO Exfoliator ™ is and awesome handheld microdermabrasion device that I use once a week and it provides my skin with extreme smoothness and a radiant glow. 

REVERSE Regimen with the AMP MD™ Micro-Exfoliating Roller
Another great tool is the REDEFINE AMP MD ™ Roller. It's a noninvasive micro-exfoliating roller which helps with firmer-looking skin. 

Combine these tools with the REDEFINE or REVERSE Regimen and you will quickly see why Rodan + Fields is the 4th largest premium skincare line in the US.

Add These To Your Plate For Glowing Skin!


Let's face it...we are all aging all the time. 

If you want a smoother, clearer complexion not only do you need a great skincare regimen like Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen, but you also need to add toss these six fortifying "Feed Your Face" foods into your grocery cart.

Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen

Dr. Kathy Fields often says "Preventing wrinkles is far less painful and expensive than correcting them. The best wrinkle is the one you never get." Why begin your day with Rodan + Fields REDEFINE RegimenREDEFINE is a comprehensive skincare regimen that layers cosmetic ingredients and proven peptide technology to help defend against and reduce the visible signs of aging for noticeably firmer, smoother, flawless-looking skin. The REDEFINE Regimen features four full-size products: 

  • Daily Cleansing Mask 
  • Pore Minimizing Toner 
  • Triple Defense Treatment SPF 30 and 
  • Overnight Restorative Cream


Tomatoes contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene which many studies suggest may be responsible for helping to protect the skin against sun damage. Lycopene is best absorbed by the body when it has been cooked or processed, so eating tomato sauce, tomato paste, and ketchup is likely to be more effective than just eating raw tomatoes when trying to safeguard your skin against harmful UV rays. That doesn't mean you should skip the daily sunscreen though!

Red Meat 
Red meat sometimes gets a bad rap, but lean red meat is high in protein and zinc. To produce collagen, your skin needs the amino acids glycine and proline, and the protein in red meat has the highest concentration of these two amino acids. The mineral zinc is also crucial for collagen production. Without enough zinc, it’s difficult for the skin to make collagen. Plus, zinc is a natural anti-inflammatory. Dont' eat meat - No worries, vegetarians don’t need to miss out as glycine can also be found in seafood, proline in cottage cheese and cabbage, and zinc in lentils, kidney beans, and raw oysters.

Green Tea 
It’s no secret that green tea is an antioxidant powerhouse. Its strong anti-inflammatory and anti-aging effects are attributed to its high concentration of catechin compounds. Research suggests that drinking one cup of green tea twice a day over the course of six months may actually reverse sun damage and significantly improve any problems you have with redness and broken capillary veins. So drink up!

Green Beans 

As long as we’re going green, let’s talk about how these low-calorie beans are a star "Feed Your Face" food because they’re one of the richest sources of silicon — not to be confused with silicone, which is found in bad lip jobs and breast implants! 


Did you know that walnuts are also incredibly high in omega-3s? If you’re concerned with redness, swelling, blotchiness, acne breakouts, or wrinkles, walnuts may be your new best friend. Plant-based omega-3s, such as the ones found in walnuts, are naturally anti-inflammatory; they can help seal moisture into your skin and protect it from chemicals and other toxins. In particular, the alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in these omega-3s can work to combat the dryness associated with aging that leads to wrinkles. But don’t stop with walnuts; you can also increase the amount of plant-based omega-3s in your diet by eating almonds, olive oil, and flaxseed, too.

Not only is it the main ingredient in the best smoothies, yogurt is an excellent "Feed Your Face" food for dealing with acne breakouts, eczema, and even dandruff. Just be sure to choose a low-fat and low-sugar yogurt, since sugar can aggravate inflammation. And if you think your breakouts are related to dairy, skip the yogurt and going straight for a probiotic supplement instead.

How your Face Ages is Up To You!


Have you ever wondered what your face will look like...20, 30, 40 years from now? Well I do!

When I was younger I rarely used sunscreen (Tsk Tsk Sue) and now as I am in my early 40's the sun damage I experienced in my teens and early 20's began to show up in my late 30's in the form of wrinkles, brown spots, unevenness and sagging skin....Sounds pretty glamorous doesn't it!

While no product can eliminate wrinkles as dramatically as Photoshop, you can take steps today to reverse the signs of aging...without the costly trip to a plastic surgeon!

My favourite products to help reverse sun damage it Rodan + Fields REVERSE Regimen with the AMP MD Roller.

Rodan+Fields REVERSE AMP it Up Special 

This regimen helps to clean the slate, by erasing the appearance of premature aging, including brown spots, dullness and discoloration with REVERSE. This Regimen exfoliates, visibly brightens and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Combine this with the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller daily for accelerated results with a firmer-looking complexion. 

The AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller (featured on Ellen) utilizes micro-exfoliation to improve the tone and texture of the complexion as skin responds to the contact of the micro-needle tips. When
