sootheRegimen for Sensitive,Irritated Skin, and Facial Redness
When your facecan’t take it anymore. Sensitive skin is a common concern among our patients. It is estimated that over 50% of people experience sensitive skin to some degree. While some have an underlying condition such as rosacea, eczema or psoriasis, we see a larger percentage who have a genetic predisposition for sensitive skin, making them more susceptible to oxidative stress, climate change, sun exposure, cosmetic intolerance, and even friction or rubbing. Symptoms can include dryness and redness, as well as stinging and itching. We created the Rodan + Fields® soothe Regimen for anyone exhibiting the signs of sensitive skin. This daily system helps to interrupt the inflammatory cascade, strengthens skin’s natural moisture barrier, calms redness and reduces irritation so that you can take comfort in having a healthy-looking, luminous complexion every day.
