It’s hard for me to believe that I am just shy of 40 years old. In my head I am still a fresh faced 18 year old, wrinkle free, without a care in the world. While I’ve been pretty good at getting the mirror to agree with me on most days, it’s inevitable that 40 is indeed coming and soon those good skin days will soon be few and far between. I’ve kept a mostly good routine, gentle cleanser, sunscreen, moisturizer, and when I can remember I drink plenty of water. Truth be told though, the climate where I live is pretty dry and that coupled with the natural passing of time, my skin isn’t as supple as it used to be.
Lifestyle is probably the biggest indicator of skin health, but where you live and the environment overall can cause skin damage and gasp–wrinkles! The folks at RoC® Skincare and Sperling’s Best Places performed a meta-analysis, with existing related research in the field of the study and found that a number of lifestyle and environmental factors directly relate to skin damage. They were able to come up with an accurate comparison between states of varying sizes. Each state in the study received points for each of the criteria based on their relation to the other state’s scores in that data category, and Category scores were weighted and aggregated to determine an overall “Wrinkle Index” score to rank the U.S. states.
According to the Wrinkle Index my state of California ranks 36 out of 50, phewpf! Those in New York or Pennsylvania aren’t as lucky though, so while it’s important for all of us, it’s even more imperative to follow a healthy routine in those areas!
Taking care of your skin involves the daily use of the protective moisturizer which will also help prevent premature aging. RoC®Skincare has been amazing on my skin.
The Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer contains a unique Retinol blend of SPF 30 which is perfect for the year round sunshine in California.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION®EYE CREAM starts to work to smooth your skin’s surface right away. When you use it continually, you’ll notice a visible reduction in wrinkles around the eye, dark circles, puffiness, and even crow’s feet. At almost 40 those are VERY real concerns for me and many women my age and in many cases even younger! I love that its hypoallergenic and non-greasy, it’s formulated to be used around the delicate eye area.
RoC® is available Target!
Wrinkles and poor skin health can be a concern for any of us regardless of how old we are. What ‘state’ is your skin in?
