My #RoCRetinolResolution

I will be celebrating a milestone birthday this December and I’ll admit it’s got me a little scared. I think I look pretty young, but there is always room for improvement! I have pretty good skin but it seems I notice a new wrinkle every day. I think it’s about time I started using retinol products on my aging face to help turn back time. Retinol is the #1 dermatologist recommended cosmetic anti aging ingredient and RoC Skincare are the retinol experts.

So I’m going to make the #RoC RETINOL RESOLUTION before the New Year even begins. RoC® is inviting all women to get a head start on 2016 by making a #RoCRetinolResolution now to look and feel her most beautiful this holiday season.

I’m starting by using the clinically proven RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. It visibly smooths wrinkles in just 4 weeks and its proprietary blend of retinol is up to 2X stronger than imitators*.

 According to Board Certified New York Dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman:

“Overnight your skin works to repair itself, so it’s important to have a good bedtime facial routine. RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream is clinically proven and contains a mix of pure retinol and an essential mineral complex, which is designed to work through the night to help reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles”.

I’m down with anything that works while I sleep! Roc® Retinol Correxion® is a smooth, rich cream that helps collagen depleted skin and helps improve the appearance of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. I’m adding RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream into my nightly routine. I’m hoping to see results in 4-6 weeks.


Changing up my skincare is only one way to improve my overall general health. Moving more is another goal I’m working on.

I’ve been working from home since June and I had no idea how much of a negative impact this would have on my general health! True I was used to a sedentary job but I did walk a lot. Walking to other offices, meetings across campus, walking to the cafeteria, etc. all gave me some exercise that I am not getting now. So I’m taking small steps to help me achieve my health goals.

The first is moving! I’ve been walking the dog more and increasing the length of the walk gradually. We are up to 2 miles a day now! I’m totally smitten with these new Nike shoes. They are so lightweight they feel more like socks! They let me walk more and for longer amount of time!

Another change I’m embracing is drinking more water. I admit I am a HUGE Diet Coke addict. When I crave more that plain water. I switch to Propel water. Not only are the flavors yummy, but it has zero calories and antioxidant vitamins C & E. I’m trying to drink 64 oz. of water everyday. Easier said than done, but I’m trying!

    I used to use the Roc wrinkle reducers with retinol, but I haven’t in a while. I need to find out the percent retinol and see if it’s equivalent to or more than what I’m using now in other brands. I always like Roc

  2. I am a skin care nut. Total. I love RoC Retinol Corexxion eye cream. It’s HG status for me.

  3. I love to incorporate RoC into my skincare routine. I’ve told so many people to use the line and they usually thank me for the advice.

    What’s the model of Nike shoes?

  5. I’m a fan of retinol, and I’ve even gotten my husband to start using it. It’s done wonders for improving the texture of his bald pate, believe it or not! I need to try RoC’s version – they have such a stellar reputation.

  6. Umm Hello gorgeous blog layout! Don’t tell me that its been like this for awhile and I just now noticed hehe. I love ROC I need to try it again, I get caught up in so many brands I forget to buy ones I use to love!
