Skin SOS with Rodan + Fields

Valentine’s Day is but a heartbeat away, and wedding season is perpetual. Glowing skin is every girl’s dream, and though many skin care products make bold promises, few do what they say, and say what they do.

Soothe Sensitive Skin Treatment moisturizer is a gem. It does what it says it’s going to do–instantly–and the results are glorious. Simply put, it just feels good.

So many people have sensitive skin or rosacea and don’t even know it. For anyone suffering from skin discomfort, Soothe calms the raw chapped feeling and takes away the red, halting stinging and burning, fast.

With all the aggressive products out there–with the multitude of sins we inflict on our skin that make us sensitive, irritated, dry or overworked–this product is heaven-sent. It makes a thoughtful gift for any bride-to-be.

It immediately calms, and by rebuilding the skin’s natural moisture barrier, also known as the acid mantle, skin is protected from future flare-ups. Used consistently, results only get better with time.

This comforting cream is part of the four-product Soothe regime developed by Stanford-trained dermatologist duo Rodan + Fields, but you can always buy just the treatment cream, $80, separately.

Dewy and moist, yet matte, Soothe penetrates fast sans stickiness.

“For sensitive skin, what stays out of a product is as important as what goes in,” Dr. Kathy Fields stated. “The Soothe regime is free of fragrance, alcohol, added colors, parabens and surfactants.”

Rosacea is an extremely common condition in which the blood vessels of the skin dilate and constrict very easily in response to a variety of stimuli including spicy food, alcohol, embarrassment, heat, sunlight and menopause, according to Dr. Katie Rodan.

“It’s characterized,” she explained, “by intense and frequent flushing causing blotchy redness on the cheeks, chin and nose.”

For people with this chronic condition, the first priority is getting their skin under control. Although there are no over-the-counter medicines approved for treating rosacea, Soothe is the perfect regime for rosacea-prone skin.

But if you just need a good, neutral non-irritating moisturizer that will heal your skin and won’t conflict with your treatment products, the Soothe moisturizer is the ideal accompaniment to almost any skin care regime and is one of those products that I try to keep in my medicine cabinet year-round.

The Gentle Cream Wash, below, doubles as a great calming shave lotion to help reduce razor burn for the man in your life, if you can bear to share.

The four-product Soothe regime, $160, includes the Gentle Cream Wash, infused with nurturing ceramides, Aloe and vitamin E; the Sensitive Skin Treatment moisturizer; the Moisture Replenishing Cream, spiked with omegas and chamomile; and the Mineral UVA/UVB SPF 30 Sunscreen, a zinc-based formula providing broad-spectrum protection and packed with anti-oxidants to defend against environmental damage.

If your skin is in need of a little TLC, the Soothe regime will straighten matters out ASAP.

These products earn high marks in the feel-good factor. Say ‘I dew’ to radiant skin. Mazel Tov, and keep reading for exclusive interviews with top makeup artists next month who will share their beauty secrets for the blushing bride, or any smart woman who wants to look her best.
