Prep Your Skin for Winter with RoC Skincare!

Press Sample

I am so proud to be an ambassador for RoC® Skincare. The brand’s scientists have devoted years of continued research to retinol, the gold standard in anti-aging ingredients, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles while working in balance with the skin’s natural renewal system to improve skin tone and skin firmness.  Because RoC® Skincare understands that retinol is only truly effective in its purest and most stable form, all the RoC® Brand retinol products are packaged in a special aluminum tube that protects retinol from light and air to keep it stable.

I asked New York City-based board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Erin Gilbert, MD, PhD, FAAD about how to prep for the harsh winter to come and asked about a few of the most common skin issues over 40 women face.

Battling wrinkles and brown spots:

“While the sun may be less intense in the winter, it is still delivering UVA and UVB rays that lead to brown spots (known as lentigines), wrinkles and crow’s feet. My first and most important tip is to continue using a sunscreen that contains an SPF 30 or higher, even in the winter months. My second tip for addressing these problem areas is to use an anti-aging moisturizer during the day and a retinol at night. Two of my favorites are RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 and RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream. The daily moisturizer contains Hexinol, a novel technology that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and boosts the overall radiance of the skin while providing sun protection. The night cream contains retinol, which is known to reduce brown spots as well as smooth wrinkles by increasing the rate of skin cell turnover. My advice in the winter is to start using your retinol product gradually, usually 2-3 nights per week to avoid over-drying the skin. After several weeks you can begin using it every night if you are not experiencing any irritation or dryness.”

I like this because as a busy modern woman. I adore multi-tasking products and RoC Multi Correxion® 5 in 1 Daily Moisturizer combats five signs of aging: sagging, discoloration, dull skin, loss of moisture and my personal favorite—wrinkles. I also like that it has an SPF of 30 in it. I never go below SPF 30 for my fair skin and if I’m going to be in the sun for a prolonged period of time, I use SPF 50. This is a stabilized avobenzone sunscreen that provides sufficient UVA protection, and together with the other actives, also provides reliable broad-spectrum protection. Plus, it’s lightweight, absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave me with a greasy feeling. The texture works well under my makeup and doesn’t ball up.

Rough skin texture:

“Rough skin texture is a common complaint in winter. It stems from dehydration of the skin as well as irritation from the elements such as indoor heaters and freezing temperatures outdoors. The first step is to increase your skin hydration by upping your water intake from 6 glasses a day to 8-10 glasses a day. This has an immediate plumping effect on the skin. The second step is to beef up your beauty routine by buffing away dead cells and adequately hydrating your skin afterward. I like using the Clarisonic brush, but you can also use a light buff puff to achieve the same results. Just don’t over scrub. Then add a serum into your regimen beneath your moisturizer to increase overall hydration, such as RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum. The serum adds an additional protective layer between your skin and the dry, cold air.”

The RoC Retinol Correxion® Deep Wrinkle Serum stimulates collagen production to reduce fine line and wrinkles. It has a silky feel and a sweet scent. It’s ideal for use under makeup and this featherweight serum will improve the look of wrinkles after about three months of daily use.
