November is the month to give thanks for many things, including healthy skin. This national focus on healthy skin should remind you to make an appointment with your dermatologist for a checkup. We talk about sunscreen and skin cancer so often during the summer but this is a concern for us all year.
Surprisingly only 26% of women in America have had their skin checked by a dermatologist. Early detection is the key to healthy skin. There is a new technology that dermatologists have called MelaFind that makes it even easier to have a skin check.
MelaFind by MELA Sciences, Inc.
MelaFind is a one-of-a-kind, breakthrough device that helps dermatologists detect melanoma when it is still curable. FDA-approved, MelaFind uses light from visible to near-infrared wavelengths to evaluate skin lesions up to 2.5 mm under the surface of the skin. It’s non-invasive, painless and provides dermatologists with data in less than a minute. This device is currently available in over 100 doctors’ offices and clinics in 29 states.
It’s also a great month to investigate some excellent and affordable skin care like these products from RoC Skin Care. As RoC ambassadors we’ve received these products and information to share with you.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION®Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30 ($22.99) is a great option for halting premature aging. The SPF protects your skin from the sun and the retinol helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This elegant lotion has a terrific texture that rivals day moisturizers that are ten times the cost.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream ($22.99) promises to significantly diminish even deep wrinkles within 12 weeks. This night moisturizer has retinol to fight those wrinkles and is best for normal to dry skin. It has a beautiful, lightweight texture that isn’t greasy and won’t clog pores. Put this on before bed and you will wake up to younger looking skin.
RoC® Daily Resurfacing Disks ($9.99): These were featured in Top Ten Tuesday Winter Weather Skincare since they are a less expensive alternative to similar discs from Trish McEvoy and Somme Institute. These are self-foaming, dual textured disks that are infused with skin conditioners. Your skin will start to see a difference in as little as one week. They are great to use after cleansing and before using other skincare.
RoC® RETINOL CORREXION®Deep Wrinkle Serum ($22.99): This Deep Wrinkle Serum is a very lightweight product that contains the RoC®RETINOL formula. This fights fine lines and deep wrinkles. Studies show that after four weeks, skin appears more radiant, fine lines are smoothed and skin firmness is improved. After eight weeks, crow’s feet are visibly reduced and discoloration is diminished. After 12 weeks, deep wrinkles are visibly reduce. Since this absorbs so quickly you can use this under makeup without a problem.
Taking care of your skin means taking care of your whole body. While RoC products are primarily for the face, you need protection all over. Aveeno has many skincare items for your body that work well in conjunction with RoC products too. Take the time to make an appointment with a dermatologist. Here’s a site that will help you locate an office that has MelaFind. — Lisa and Marcia
