Do you live in a Wrinkle-Prone City? RoC has the answer!


Are you more apt to get wrinkles based on where you live? You bet. RoC Skincare partnered with independent research firm Sperling’s for the Best Places for the 2016 RoC® Wrinkle Ranking study: a city by city look at the metropolitan areas’ risk for skin damage and premature aging by the year 2040. The analysis is based on factors commonly known to affect skin health – lifestyle, occupational and environmental influences… Living in NYC, I’m well aware I’m at a deep disadvantage due to my lifestyle and pollution levels! Until now though, I had no idea how we ranked to other cities. Did your city make the Most Wrinkle-Prone city list? Find out below and click HERE for the complete ranking.


Funny enough, I grew up in the Cambridge, MA area (ranked #20) and have spent the past 15 years in NYC (ranked #8). My two cities make the top 20 list by 2040! Good thing I drink a million cups of water, wear SPF and take incredible care of my skin. In shocking news, Denver will hit the #2 rank (maybe it’s the altitude?), just under Philadelphia – who knew they would out wrinkle us all.


Besides using an SPF everyday (a minimum of 30 everyone!), one of the best things you can do to prevent and help existing wrinkles is adding a retinol into your skincare routine. I have a deep attachment for the RoC RETINOL CORREXION collection. Their Deep Wrinkle Serum first serum I ever used, even though I probably didn’t have single wrinkle at the time. In fact I’ve always called it the RoC Serum and don’t think at the time paid much attention to the Deep Wrinkle title when first using it. My stepmother was actually the one that turned me on to the RoC RETINOL CORREXION collection before my career in beauty started over ten years ago. She’s a 20 year loyalist, religiously using the RoC RETINOL CORREXION Daily Moisturizer and Night Cream (she buys the combo pack from Costco). Those have been two of her staples for the past two decades and since then has added in the Eye Cream and Max Resurfacing Cleanser to her everyday routine. She’s 53 people! Just look at how amazing she looks!

Roc Multi Corrextion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream


What do you think? Does my neck look younger? My acupuncturist likes to point out, I have a long neck which incidentally has led James to think that’s my nickname — I’m now reduced to a character from The Land Before Time. While I choose to not be insecure about it, you better believe I’m all about protecting my neck. A long neck I can deal with, a saggy, unkept long neck on the other hand… I think I’ll pass.

Before I talk about RoC’s new Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 here’s some intel you should all be aware of. For starters UV exposure is the fastest way to age so in addition to SPF on your face, please make sure it’s on your neck, chest, hands and anywhere else that’s exposed to sun. Next, your neck and chest are the most sensitive and susceptible parts of your body because the skin is thinner (more so then your face!). We have less fat underneath those areas so it can show your age faster. Case and point, wear SPF and extend your skincare regimen to your neck and chest. (Or pick a product like this one from RoC that is designed for them and has an SPF 30). roc-neck-cream-Lizzie-Fortunato-roc-necklace

Now I’m ready to talk about RoC’s new Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 ($27.99) beginning with this lovely necklace I’m wearing designed by Lizzie Fortunato. This long neck deserves something pretty around it — as do all necks! So RoC partnered with Lizzie Fortunato to create a custom LF x RoC Onyx Collar. Gold-plated brass with onyx semi-precious stones it’s available for purchase HEREroc-x-Lizzie-Fortunato-necklace

Now, back to the cream, I’m going to confess that I only use it on my neck and check, mainly because I think those parts of our bodies have different needs then our faces. I have a whole face regimen I like to do depending on what my skin needs. I’m more into customizing my face products and layering the different benefits then using an all-in-one. That said, this cream is designed for all three and for all you guys and gals who don’t have patience for more then a few steps, this is a great alternative. Now when it comes to my face and neck I’m good with cleansing and then going straight to a moisturizer (with maybe an added essence or toner step in between).

The RoC’s new Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 is clinically proven to visibly smooth fine lines on the chest and neck after 4 weeks of use. I’ve been using it for almost a month and love it. It absorbs beautifully and isn’t chalky or have any weird SPF after-effects that some products do. It’s hydrating and I’m so excited that has an SPF 30 in it! It’s formulated with HEXINOL Technology and Vitamin E to help treat the signs of aging in one step as well as restore elasticity and firmness. Your neck and chest are just as prone to changes in pigment, elasticity, wrinkles and texture as your face — maybe even more so — so I hope I’ve inspired you to take better care of it!

Sidebar:  I’m in love with my new perforated Keds! I’ve been on a bit of a Keds kick lately (see my post on how you can now customize and monogram them). There’s something about their girl power attitude — they were the first brand to design sneakers for woman!

Real Simple Hosts Beauty & Balance Event

Real Simple Beauty Balance EventOn Friday, Real Simple magazine hosted their annual Beauty & Balance event at the Andaz hotel in NYC. It was the perfect de-stress day after a long red-eye home from LA (and my gearing up to be on another plane tomorrow). I took my first Pure Barre class — I know I’m late to the party on this trend — but I totally get the hype! I engaged muscles in my abs that have probably been asleep for the past decade and it’s an incredible class for anyone looking to tone and build strength (and flexibility) throughout their whole body. When I’m back from my whirlwind travels, I’m going back.

NYC is the 2nd Most Wrinkle-Prone Region in the US! Guess why.

Living in the city that never sleeps is a unique experience filled with many perks ranging from the best shopping, 24 hour delivery services, and cultural experiences at every turn. All of these obvious “pluses” happen to also come with a big “minus”.  According to a new study by Sperling’s BestPlaces and RoC Skincare, the Big Apple is the second most wrinkle-prone region in the U.S.!!! This study assesses lifestyle, occupational and environmental factors that can add wear and tear to the skin (of which NYC scored higher then average in all categories). Some leading factors include climate conditions, stress levels and not enough sleep!!
