Skincare

Skincare oh skincare…. the dreaded topic of what to use and what not to use is forever changing. There is a wide variety of views when it comes to this topic and why? Because we all have such different skin that needs different kinds of care. Also, there’s a lot of false advertising out there. Here’s the skinny on what I’ve learned over the years as well as a brief history of the progression of my skin.

As a teen I had nasty acne, it wasn’t cystic, however, it was everywhere. My forehead, nose, chin, even sometimes on my chest and back. It was SO embarrassing although I’m sure a lot of you can relate. Hormones can be a b!t@h. After most people started to grow out of theirs, mine was still alive and well…. or unwell and nasty I should say. I had used Proactiv on and off and it would clear thing up for a while but then my skin would dry right up and start flaking everywhere so eventually I started to stay away from it. Nothing against the company at all, it just didn’t work great for MY skin.

Jump ahead some years and about 362 different products later trying everything under the sun from Olay, Neutrogena, Mary Kay all the way up to Clinique. Again, nothing wrong with these brands as they work well for some people but they weren’t doing it for me. My skin is a combination of extremely dry and very oil- let that one sink in. After experiencing even worse breakouts from “A NATURAL” skincare line I had finally given up and was washing my face with hand soap… I know… disgusting and it still haunts me to this day when I think about it.

In 2014 I started hearing a buzz about this Rodan+Fields company that was coming to Canada soon and how it was “life-changing skincare” which really made me interested. Fast forward to 2015 one of my good friends started selling it and I just HAD to try it as I learned they had four main regimens for ACNE, SENSITIVE SKIN, SUN DAMAGE, AND ANTI-AGING! I was literally doing the happy dance because I wanted to work on all those areas of my skin so of course, I started on Unblemish, their acne brand. Within three to four months my skin had slowly transformed, my acne was GONE, literally nowhere to be found. At first, I thought ok great, but it will return. That little voice was always in the back of my head. Now here I am just shy of three years later and my skin is still ACNE FREE! It’s crazy, it’s awesome but most of all it feels like a god damn MIRACLE. I stayed diligent, used the products AM and PM and slowly but surely it changed. Now don’t get me wrong, there may be a small, very small part of the population it won’t work for but I must say… this stuff really works.

So here’s a list of everything I use every single day from Rodan+Fields below. Full disclosure, yes, I now sell the products on the side as an extra income, however, I wouldn’t ever sell someone something I didn’t believe in 110%. These products really work and they’re tested and approved by the FDA. Rodan+Fields is now sold in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
