The Happiness That Comes From Living In A City Where I Am Less Likely To Wrinkle

A funny thing happened last month. I became a year older. Aging isn't something that I take lightly, I know that there are many people who don't get this privilege each year. I truly celebrate each year as the gift that it is. But, that doesn't mean that I'm okay with my skin looking like it is aging, because that I am not okay with. I am so thankful to partner with RoC Skincare a company that understands that aging is a part of life, but that wrinkles don't have to be.


I feel like I am at my happiest point in my life. As I get closer to 40, each year just seems to get better, and I have so much excitement for the future! I want to look and feel my best during this great time in my life so exercise and healthy eating are at the top of my priorities these days, as is taking care of my whole body down to my skin.

I want healthy skin that looks as young as I feel, no matter what my age is. Keeping my skin hydrated and out of the sun has been something that I have worked on starting before I was a teenager. My grandmother kept face cream by her sink and was religious about using it in the morning and at night. Her skin was always beautiful and looked decades younger than she was. She would be thrilled to know that so many people care about their skin these days and that there are products available now that help keep the signs of aging at bay, and treat deep wrinkles, like RoC® Skincare.

RoC® Skincare even partnered with independent research firm Sperling’s Best Places for the 2016 RoC® Wrinkle Ranking study. This is 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 like lifestyle, occupational and environmental influences.

I was so happy to see that my city of San Diego ranked 42. Far from the #1 city most likely to wrinkle, Philadelphia. Poor Philadelphia! It was interesting to see where the different cities ranked.


The good news is that no matter where your city ranked on the list, you can still protect your skin starting today. Even if you have wrinkles right now, help is here with RoC® Skincare, a leading French skincare brand for more than 50 years, devoted to developing anti-aging products that guarantee visible and lasting results for healthier and younger-looking skin.


For the past week, I have been using two products from the RETINOL CORREXION® line which utilizes retinol, the “gold standard” in anti-aging skin care ingredients, giving years back to the look and feel of skin. After a week of use, my skin feels so soft and I can't wait to see the results in a couple more weeks! I have always used a sunblock and moisturizer each day and it is nice to have one product that protects and keeps my skin so hydrated!

These are the products I've been using and they can be purchased at CVS:

RETINOL CORREXION® Sensitive Eye Cream- RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® EYE CREAM: Contains an exclusive combination of pure retinol and an essential mineral complex that is clinically proven to visibly reduce the signs of aging in the eye area. When you apply RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® EYE CREAM, the formula starts to work immediately to smooth skin’s surface. With continued use, you will notice a visible reduction in wrinkles around the eye, crow’s feet, dark circles, and puffiness – addressing the most common concerns of women. The result – skin around the eyes will feel healthier and look younger. The hypoallergenic, non-greasy, moisturizing cream is specially formulated for use around the delicate eye area.


RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® DEEP WRINKLE DAILY MOISTURIZER WITH SPF 30: Contains an exclusive combination of pure retinol and the latest sunscreen technology that is specifically engineered to deliver very broad and photostable UVA and UVB protection with an SPF 30. The moisturizer is clinically shown to visibly diminish deep wrinkles after 8 weeks of use*. Daily use of the protective moisturizer will also help prevent premature aging.

  1. I just turned 40 and it was rough. I do not have any wrinkles yet but I think good genes and a good living environment is to thank for this. I will be sure to check this out as I start my proactive approach to aging

  2. I need some ROC asap. I am already starting to wrinkle around my eyes, and its awful. I’m just newly 31! Need this for myself asap!

  3. Happy belated birthday, first of all. Getting older isn’t problematic for me, but aging skin certainly isn’t my favorite. Glad to know I can find such great solutions as easily as heading to CVS.

  4. I will have to try RoC® Skincare. I do not want to get to many wrinkles if I can avoid it. I am almost 50 and so far I have been lucky.

  5. Wow look at this infographic my city is on there, and yes the commute can stress you out I know! I drive through it all the time…I dont want early wrinkles because of it!

  6. Just because you are getting older doesn’t mean you have to look it! I have not had the chance to try these products but I have seen them on the shelf. Next time they will find their way into my cart!

  7. Happy Birthday to you, I am sure you had some great fun! I am almost getting close to the 40s and being a restless busy mom I might definitely need something like ROC to help with the wrinkles.

  8. nice products there! i can’t live without my serum and moisturizer as the humidity and the weather in dubai is not skin friendly at all

  9. I need something like this! I am getting more wrinkles each year and although they “give you character” I thin I have good enough character and could less wrinkles LOL!

  10. I wonder what my Canadian city would rank on this list. I definitely want to fight any signs of aging that are showing. Keeping my skin moisturized and healthy are very important.

  11. These products look great! I don’t think I’m as lucky as you to live in an area that doesn’t wrinkle me though 😉

  12. Retinal creams are my favorite!!!! I’m in my early 30s and starting to see those first signs of aging and these types of lotions help so much!

  13. This is so interesting that there are different areas that have different extremes that help or hinder skin. These products would help either way!
