How often do you get to shop for skin care with a dermatologist?

Well, I did just that recently at Duane Reade on Wall Street in NYC and learned about RoC Brand skincare. I got to “Walk the Aisle” with prominent NYC dermatologists, Dr. Debra Jaliman and Johnson & Johnson Research & Development Senior Director, Anna Prilutsky.


While I shopped, I also made sure to get answers to those FAQ. You tweet me a question and I will try to get you the best answer! 

During the #Eyes4NYC #CollectiveBias event we discussed the importance of taking proactive measures in skincare and anti-aging/skin care and the right RoC® products.

Q. What is Retinol?

A.  Retinol is the principle Vitamin A, and fills all the roles that Vitamin A plays metabolically. Vitamin A used in the treatment of the skin conditions, cystic acne and psoriasis. Many Vitamin A effects are hormone-like, influencing the growth and differential of cells. Vitamin A can also be considered a biological response modifier. Retinol works by speeding up the cellular turnover rate, which allows the healthier cells to work their way up to the surface faster and by decreasing the activity of the destructive enzyme collagens.

Q. So, what causes wrinkles?

A. Due the gravitational force, the tissues of our body are pulled down. This phenomenon is helped by the loss of moisture in our skin. Loss of moisture results in collagen breakdown and the free radical damage over a period of time. This results in sagging of the skin, marking thin and deeper lines. Anti wrinkle eye creams work to prevent the easing factors by providing extra moisture daily, reducing collagen damage, and free radical activity with anti-oxidants.

Q. How do eye creams work?

A. Anti wrinkle eye cream contains ingredients that provide extra moisture to your skin. This helps in diminishing darkness from the skin and makes it appear more firm. Anti wrinkle eye cream come in different potencies and times of application.  

Q. Do anti-wrinkle creams work?

A. Creams are topical and effects produced can veer off after some time. We need to catch the root cause of wrinkle and act on them. The onus is on everyone to try on their own and check the results over time. Many women think about it far too late and for creams and lotions to have any protective effect you need to start the treatment at the right time. A good diet and active life style are the best ways to take care of wrinkles  especially water, vitamin c, anti-oxidants from vegetables, etc.
