Chances are you know that your skin is your body’s largest organ. It protects your face and body from germs, infection, bacteria, pollution, environmental stressors and more. So obviously it needs to regenerate every 27 days. According to Stanford University, your body also replaces itself with a new set of cells every seven to 10 years, which may explain why our former favourite skin cream doesn’t work as well on our face any more.
Sensitive to the humidity, easily flushed and often tight and painful feeling, we need a cream that can better manage our skin, like Rodan + Fields SOOTHE Moisturizing Rescue Cream. Nourishing and rich, this soothing cream gives our face a hit of hydration to replenish, nourish and strengthen our skin’s natural moisture barrier, locking in our natural oils to create a smooth and supple appearance. An infusion of colloidal oatmeal helps to protect our skin too, while providing relief from our usual dry and itchy feeling. Simultaneously, our eczema-prone cheeks are soothed and smoothed in the process. And then there are the seven essential ceramides that add an extra dose of TLC.
But what we probably like the best about this face cream is its results. After three weeks use, our face looks less red and blotchy and the uncomfortable prickly sensations are mostly gone. We also have much less visible dryness, which means our crow’s feet aren’t waving hello every time we smile. That’s always a win in our books.
