At the ripe age of 26, I wouldn’t exactly say that anti-aging benefits is on the top of my skincare priority list but it isn’t too far off. On the surface, it seems a little silly because I have rather clear skin and a healthy complexion that leaves people perplexed when I tell them about the anti-aging products I love to use. I get it. I don’t exactly look like I could use any anti-aging benefits but my skin would beg to differ. On the regular, I hear lots of ladies complaining about oily skin but little do they know that yesteryear’s oil slick is actually a helping hand when it comes to aging. All that excess oil produced by oily skin leaves skin more plump and smooth over time resulting in a more youthful appearance free of severe fine lines and wrinkles. Now dry skin? That’s another story!
Dry skin seems like less of a headache because there’s no worry about your favorite makeup sliding off halfway throughout the day. Or the need to carry around blotting papers. But dry skin isn’t completely struggle free. In fact, dry skin can actually speed up the aging process making skin look dull, flat and littered with fine lines and wrinkles. Which is extremely annoying. Especially when it comes to makeup and skincare.
My skin is perpetually dry but it doesn’t always appear that way because I use everything under the sun from oils, serums and rich hydrating creams. And masks too! For years, I’ve struggled with fine dry lines around my mouth and under my eyes that love to eat up foundation and concealer. I’ve tried pretty much everything under the sun to alleviate the problem with decent results but nothing to completely ease my pain. I don’t think I’ll ever come across a product that’ll banish my fine lines for good but I’ve discovered a product that does help dramatically: the Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask. The Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask is designed for people with dry skin woes that want to soothe and ease those annoying signs of aging. Like pesky fine lines, annoying wrinkles and a dull, dry complexion. It’s formulated with a botanical blend of:
- Desert Rose to boost cell turnover and restore suppleness
- Damask Rose to help purify and tighten pores to fight signs of aging
- Rose Commiphora to reduce redness
- Pale Rose to help rebuild moisture barrier and make skin supple and soft
Together these powerful ingredients help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while acting as a tall glass of water for dry, dehydrated skin. Like the Cucumber Gel Mask, the Rose Stem Bio-Repair Gel Mask has a lightweight gel texture that absorbs rather quickly into the skin but with a soft rose scent that smells quite nice. The Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask is gentle, cooling and soothing so it’s suitable to use regularly (nightly if you choose!) and also safe for the eye area. Which is a huge plus for me because that’s the one problem area I can never seem to keep hydrated. I use the Rose Stem Bio-Repair Gel Mask at least 2-3 times a week because it keeps my dry skin in check and even gives my perpetually dry eyes a boost when none of my rich creams seem to be working the way I want them to. The Rose Stem Bio-Repair Gel Mask is a wee bit pricey at $52 but it’s worth every penny if you have dry skin or just want to ease those pesky signs of aging for a flawless complexion that looks great even with makeup. If you’re anything like me, I think you will love the Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask just as much as I do. However, if you’re not ready to make such a hefty commitment I recommend picking up the Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic Set from Sephora to give it a try before you commit to the full size.
