So, Acne is the blemishes that almost 80% of adults encounter during their lives. What emerges on the surface of your face is the concluding step in a multiple-step process.
Subsequently, the Dermatologist Dr Katie Rodan and Dr Kathy Fields have termed this the “Acne Cycle”.
As a result, I am here to help you solve how the break this cycle and also to answer those questions you might have of what is lurking beneath and on the surface of your skin.
Firstly, tt actually can be traced back to your genetics and hormones. How much oil your body or more importantly, your skin produces.
Consequently, when you have excessive oil production in combination with the dead skin, we identify these forms plugs that clumps collectively in your skin pores.
Secondly, when you have this plug, you will discover below this is a type of bacteria found called Propionibacterium acnes-P.acnes for short.
For instance, this bacteria begins to flourish in these conditions cut off from oxygen, much like a clogged pore. Subsequently, the P. acne is comfortable below this plug, feasting on the oil and it commences to multiply.
To sum up, your skin starts to respond to this growth in P.acne bacteria and its byproducts.
During this process, your skin will begin to show signs of inflammation and swelling and becomes what is known as a pimple.
Most believe that it is the bacteria that is the culprit.
However, it is the oil that is hindering the oxygen from reaching the pore that is the cause.
What triggers this oil production? Our hormones.
Moreover, what the dermatologist have learned is that these blemishes have commenced developing days or even weeks before reaching the surface of the skin.
So, the secret to controlling them is to keep them from forming in the first place. Actively interrupting the acne cycle, so the blemishes never get to the surface.
Early in the Dermatology careers, the founding Drs understood that though the process of acne cycle is involved, the treatment of acne did not need to be.
At Rodan and Fields Skincare we now have two easy to use regimens. Dermatologist recommended and deep-cleaning.
Breaking your adult acne cycle with UNBLEMISHED FORMULATION has never been easier. These straightforward-applied steps are exclusive to Rodan and Fields and specifically designed to break your acne cycle.
As a result, by unclogging pores, removing the acne-causing bacteria and oil to prevent future breakouts.
In other words, Rodan and Fields SPOTLESS recommended for teens and young adults with acne. The UNBLEMISHED REGIMEN is scientifically advanced for adult acne and to address the visible signs of again.
So, these dermatologists inspired skincare combines over the counter and cosmetic ingredients. They are used twice a day over the entire face, for optimal results.
And moreover, these deep-cleaning regimens will clear your existing acne and prevent new blemishes from forming. The most exciting news is that the doctors are bringing this must-have effective acne solution to even more people.
So the Rodan and Fields UNBLEMISHED feature a scientifically advanced formulation of Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid.
That is to say, this clarifying combination is to assist in clearing current blemishes, prevention of clogged pores and proven to reduce the visible redness caused by acne—all while preventing new breakouts.
In short, the Skin-nourishing ingredients help soothe, condition and brighten adult acne-prone skin, while physical and chemical exfoliators help enhance skin’s natural cell renewal to address the visible signs of ageing. This multi-tasking approach will leave adults with acne looking and feeling confident.
Why Rodan and Fields use MULTI-STEP SCIENCE SKINCARE?
Firstly, Rodin + Fields skincare programs – Created to maximise effectiveness by meticulously selecting ingredients that are active in the power of science and nature, combining them to resonate with each other, and taking care of them in the right order.
Secondly, Acne Drs Kathy Rodan and Kathy Fields know that some skincare ingredients work harmoniously together.
Thirdly, you used each step the way the doctors intended, To maximise the efficacy of the results of these products.
For example, I scan for proof that products work. I looked at brands like Rodan and Fields, Murad, Perricone MD, or SkinMedica that all have put forth the effort to create clinical tests.
As a result, Skincare brands should be able to provide the Clinical Tests that they have performed on their skincare range.
Similarly, these Skincare Clinical Trials will provide the user evidence that their skincare works. It also will indicate to you that the skincare company is willing to offer dermatologist-tested trials, proving their claims. So, I know transparency in skincare brands is very important.
In the same vein, I recommend that to take the time to do your research before investing in a Prestige or Premium Skincare Brand. An excellent Skincare Brand will be more than motivated to provide you with its clinical results.
There is no comparison between Rodan and Fields to other skincare brands who choose not to provide me with an ingredient list and clinical tests.
In short, skincare has several segments and categories. This brand falls in the Prestige and Premium category.
So, Results can be visible in six to eight weeks when you use the UNBLEMISHED Regimen for acne. If you are experiencing more severe acne, it might take longer for you to see an improvement. With consistent use of Unblmeished medicated products over time, the more visible the skin results will be.
The clinical data – the twice-daily use of the UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash, Clarifying Toner, Dual Intensive Acne Treatment.
How long does your skin purge before it clears up?
It would be best if you were patient for one skin cycle. The skincare cycle for an average adult is 28 days. So the time will be from four to six weeks for the skin purge to last.
However, if your skin purging last longer than six weeks, consult please contact the RF Connection at [email protected] for assistance. However, generally, dermatologist does say that this purging will be over in four to six weeks of starting a new skincare regimen.
Subsequently, based on Multi-Med® Therapy, UNBLEMISH is a complete skincare system that combines active cosmetic and OTC ingredients that penetrate pores to eliminate acne blemishes before they are visible on the skin’s surface.
Moreover, to visibility lighten and helps reduce the appearance of post-acne marks.
Tip: Avoid Scarring
picking at your skin and popping pimples is tempting but please try to avoid it. Popping pimples can lead to acne scars. If you do have a blemish, leave it alone and treat it with the recommended products with Benzoyl Peroxide. Let them do their job and keep up with your skincare regimen to help maintain your healthy, clear skin.
The Adolescent variety, commonly known as acne vulgaris tends to dominate the Acne discussion and even the skincare market when it comes to products. We understand that acne is increasing, and it is now beginning to garner more attention and more excellent media coverage – specifically concerning the emotional complexities someone with acne can experience.
Did you know that 80 per cent of adults experience acne? While teenage acne usually lasts between five and ten years and goes away in one’s early 20s, adult acne is a chronic condition that can remain for decades. Adult acne, in some cases, is hormonal acne. You can find out if your acne is of the hormonal variety by getting a simple blood test at your dermatologist’s office.
Another thing to note: While it may look similar, adult skin requires a different approach than teen skin. We treated acne with ingredients from Salicylic Acid to Retinoids to Benzoyl Peroxide. There are benefits to each of these active ingredients. The latter —Benzoyl Peroxide —helps immensely with adult acne.
“As practising dermatologists, product developers and women, we understand the emotional, physical and scientific aspects of acne,” says Dr Katie Rodan, Co-Founder of Rodan + Fields. “Working side-by-side with our team of scientists and innovators we’ve pioneered many skincare firsts, and we’re thrilled to have discovered a game-changing way to treat acne for teens,” says Dr Kathy Fields, Co-Founder of Rodan + Fields.
In this post, learn how Benzoyl Peroxide works and why dermatologists believe it’s the most recommended and trusted ingredient for treating acne.
Each pore in your skin is its microbiome, or environment, with natural bacteria that keep your skin in balance. When hormonal changes cause your skin to produce a thick sticky oil, it clogs up your pores, blocking oxygen’s way. The once healthy C acne bacteria in the pore, now starved for oxygen, becomes angry. Causes inflammation, which leads to acne.
Benzoyl Peroxide is an antimicrobial ingredient used in acne medications to treat mild to moderate acne. You use it in combination with other acne treatments. When applied to the skin, this ingredient works by reducing the amount of acne-causing bacteria. Benzoyl Peroxide provides similar results to antibiotics but includes fewer side effects, according to research. You can’t get resistant to Benzoyl Peroxide, but you can build resistance to antibiotics over time.
Forms and Concentrations of Benzoyl PeroxideBenzoyl Peroxide comes in two forms: crystals and liquid.
The most common Benzoyl Peroxide form is crystals. However, the size of the Benzoyl Peroxide molecule when it’s in crystal form makes it difficult to penetrate past the skin’s biofilm and into the pores. Benzoyl Peroxide can be irritating to the skin.
Benzoyl Acne Treatments and Routines
I am using UNBLEMISH, and my breakouts are getting worse. What should I do?
Acne is affected by stress, hormones and several other physiological and environmental circumstances. These ingredients all may contribute to your skin flaring up if you are a new UNBLEMISHED skincare user.
I recommend that you make sure you follow our schedule. Included in your UMBLEMISHED Regimen will be Rodan and Fields easy to use the brochure as this innovative “ramp-up” schedule will allow you to build up to the twice a day skincare schedule. Having a few more acne breakouts when you commence using UNBLEMISHED may be expected.
What products can I use during the off times while I ramp up the UNBLEMISH Regimen?
During your “ramp-up” schedule when you first start using the UMBLEMISH Skincare Regimen. I recommend that you use a mild cleanser, moisturiser moisturises and sunscreen with SFP 15+++.
I also recommend that you bypass any other products that contain acne ingredients such as Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid, Retinoids, Alpha-Hydroxy Acids such as Glycolic Acid. Also, ignore the use of any scrubs or mechanical brushes. These brushes can produce in irritation. Our SOOTHE Regimen is a great gentle and enriching formulation for your skincare routine.
Your skin might be adjusting to the ingredients in the UNBLEMISHED Skincare regimen. You might sense moderate redness or slight tightness in your skin.
I recommend you layer a moisturiser over the UNBLEMISHED Step 3 Intensive Acne Treatment. I have found much success with the Active Hydration Serum or SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream Step 3.
How long should I use the UNBLEMISH Regimen?
Just because your skin is clear does not mean it is time to stop.
You can use this skincare Regimen for as long as you need. I recommend that to keep your skin clear and healthy, continuous use of this easy to use formulation is applied twice a day.
I recommend that it is only once your skin has been acne-free for an extended period, such as maybe six months. As your Rodan and Fields Skincare consultant, I would recommend you shift to once a day of the UNBLEMISHED REgimen and to introduce our REDEFINE Skincare Regimen or REVERSE Skincare Regimen into your daily routine.

The UNBLEMISH formulation does address body acne. My recommendation is that you will use the “ramp-up” method as directed for the face for the body acne. I recommend you use this essential formulation twice a day to control your body acne breakouts.
When you are using the deep-cleaning UNBLEMISHED Regimen on your body, and your skin feels dry. I recommend the use of a light non-greasy moisturiser.
Caution benzoyl Peroxide can bleach fabrics, so wear white clothing and use white linens and towels.
How do I use REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum with UNBLEMISH Regimen?
I recommend that you use the UNBLEMISHED Regimen for four weeks. You will find that a small patch of the REDEFINED Intensive Renewing Serum. I recommend doing this for three days to ensure you do not have a contra reaction. Remember that our products come with a 60day money-back guarantee.
Once you are confident that your skin does not react, begin using the Intensive Renewing Serum three nights a week. Increasing this schedule to every night as your skin tolerates this.
Please note that a broad-spectrum sunscreen is an essential part of your skincare routine for long-lasting and younger-looking skin.
The sunscreen is to protect adult acne-prone skin from the Ultra Violet rays that can intensify the appearance of acne marks. Rodan and Fields UNBLEMISHED Step 4 Matt Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 15+++ comes as part of the UNBLEMISHED Regimen.
What if I am allergic to Benzoyl Peroxide? Can I use the UNBLEMISH Regimen?

Some of our ingredients are specifically designed, patented and formulated for Rodan and Fields.

Does Unblemished contain any Retinol?
The Rodan and Fields Intensive Renewing Serum do contain Retinol.
Retinol, Retinol, in general, is an excellent ingredient for anyone with acne, as it exfoliates the skin and advances desquamation.
What is RetinAL?
You may have heard about the “miracle” ingredient that is Retinol. The so-called “Gold Standard” of skincare ingredients. This component has the scientific backing to show that Retinol works.
The Science of Skincare – A derivate of skin-boosting Vitamin A, Retinol is considered to be the ultimate ingredient for tackling the signs of ageing skin. Retinol is a potent stimulator of our fibroblast cells. These cells are responsible for collagen, elastin, hydration, and your skin’s cellular turn over. Your skin’s health is dependent on those four things.
When topically applied to your face, Retinol works to increase the numbers of fibroblast cells in the skin and to boost the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.
There is a new kid on the block at that is Retin-Al is an effective acne treatment, using an intense form of Retinoic acid called Tretinoin. As well as being useful for Adult acne treatment it also helps reduce lines and pigmentation.
