We all know stress is bad for both the body and soul. But, did you know stress can actually cause wrinkles? Stress triggers the release of cortisol, a hormone that results in clogged pores and inflammation. When collagen becomes inflamed, the skin’s matrix breaks down and creates a wrinkle. And if that’s not bad enough, stressed, inflamed skin can also become dry and itchy as a result of poor circulation caused by constricting blood vessels.
RoC MULTI CORREXION NOURISH Stress Repair Night Cream ($24.99), has been, in the words of its creators, “clinically proven to reverse the look of stress-related aging and unwind wrinkles while nourishing dehydrated skin for a more youthful, radiant look.”
I used this product nightly for about two weeks. At first, I confess, I was not wowed. The cream had a very gloppy, sticky feel — kind of like the white paste of my childhood — and I had no faith it would actually be absorbed by my skin. But by morning, it had magically disappeared: leaving no slick, slimy residue whatsoever; my skin felt soft and refreshed. I can’t say it made any difference as far as wrinkles were concerned, but given its price point and the absorption factor, I’d say this is a good, solid product that I might turn to again.
You can find this and all RoC skincare products at your local drugstore. Find out more information on this product at www.rocskincare.com.
