Skin Care Questions
Is there any way to make pores look smaller?
Although your pore size is genetically determined, a buildup of oil, dirt, and dead cells can enlarge them. You can incorporate products containing glycolic and salicylic acid into your daily regimen to minimize the appearance of pores. We recommend: Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, Glycolic Acid 10% Hydrating Gel, Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer, Un-Wrinkle® Peel Pads, Max Complexion Correction Pads, Gentle Complexion Correction Pads, and AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel.
Why do I need special products for the eye area?
The tissue around the eye is the thinnest on the body and therefore will show the first signs of aging. It is important to treat this delicate area differently with a specific eye treatment. We recommend: Power K Eye Rescue®, Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel, Mega Rich™ Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Crème, Eye Overhaul Duo™, and Un-Wrinkle® Eye.
What product should I use for lines around my mouth?
We recommend: Un-Wrinkle® Lip. It contains six peptides, 2% plumping nanovectors to plump collagen decreasing fine lines, and shea butter to nourish and moisturize dry chapped lips. It also contains a Dermapeptide warming agent that is formed by tabasco chile and malagueta pepper to increase circulation and stimulate tissue leading to plump juicy lips.
What would be the best product to use for puffiness under my eyes?
We recommend: Eye Overhaul Duo™ and Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel. Eye Overhaul Duo™ contains Regu®-Age, a specific ingredient created especially to reduce under eye puffiness and dehydration. Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel contains marine collagen which firms, smoothes and lifts the skin, all while cooling and calming puffiness.
My main concern is deep lines and wrinkles. Which products are best suited for me?
We recommend: our Un-Wrinkle® collection. These innovative wrinkle fighting products are formulated with powerful patent pending and proprietary state-of-the-art anti-aging peptides, neuropeptides and other advanced ingredients to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles and expression lines.
Do I need to wear a sunscreen everyday, even while at work and in the winter?
Yes, always protect your skin with sunscreen. UVA and UVB rays penetrate through windows and glass. In winter, rays reflect off the snow, and can cause increased sunburn. We recommend: Max All Day Moisture Defense® Cream With SPF 30, Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense® Lotion With SPF 30, and any product in our Sun Care collection.
Do you have products that address redness?
Yes, the Peter Thomas Roth line has products for everyone. The brand treats all skin concerns including ultra sensitive types and rosacea. We recommend: Gentle Foaming Cleanser, Chamomile Cleansing Lotion, VIZ-1000™, and Cucumber Gel Masque.
I have oily skin. Do I still need a moisturizer?
Yes, moisturizers play a vital role in a daily skin care regimen. If the skin is lacking moisture, simply speaking, little messages will get sent to the sebaceous glands (oil producing glands in the skin) alerting them to go into oil-producing overdrive. Essentially, by dehydrating the skin, more oil will be produced. For oily skin we recommend: Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense® Lotion With SPF 30 and Oil-Free Moisturizer.
Why do I need to use a different product at night than I do during the day?
We like to think of nighttime as “treatment time.” It is when you should put lots of beneficial ingredients into the skin for maximum penetration without any harmful environmental factors getting in the way. We recommend: Un-Wrinkle® Night, Ultra-Lite Anti-Aging Cellular Repair, and Mega Rich™ Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Crème.
My neck and décolleté are starting to show signs of aging. What product do you recommend?
We recommend: Un-Wrinkle® Neck. This intensive patent pending deep wrinkle, neck and décolleté treatment contains an anti-aging peptide blend that targets the delicate skin of the neck and décolleté where skin is most susceptible to sagging and crepiness. This powerful blend is specifically formulated to increase collagen, plump the skin and build stronger tighter elastin to lift and firm the neck.
What product should I use if I have very oily, problematic skin but need sun protection?
We recommend: Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense® Lotion With SPF 30 and Uber-Dry™ Sunscreen SPF 30. Both are gentle enough for all skin types, including very oily and those prone to acne.
Is there a product to help treat the puffiness and dark circles under my eyes?
For dark circles we recommend: Power K Eye Rescue®. This active eye treatment helps to visibly brighten and reduce the appearance of dark (blue) circles, fatigue, bruising (after rubbing, surgery, allergies, etc.), fine lines and wrinkles by combating the underlying cause of darkening and aging. It is also gel based to help tighten the eye area for puffiness. For puffiness we recommend: Eye Overhaul Duo™ and Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel. Eye Overhaul Duo™ contains Regu®-Age, a specific ingredient created especially to reduce under eye puffiness and dehydration. Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel contains marine collagen which firms, smoothes and lifts the skin, all while cooling and calming puffiness.
How can I brighten up my dull complexion?
We recommend: Radiance Oxygenating Serum and Radiance Oxygenating Masque. Both contain a potent radiance boosting complex of oxygen combined with effective brighteners and anti-oxidants to enhance and maintain the overall health of skin to impart a visibly refined appearance. Skin is left looking smoother, brighter and years younger. Also, Power Rescue Facial Firming Lift™, an age defense repair gel that contains Vitamin K, which regulates blood flow evening out skin tone and Kojic Acid, which helps to control melanin production resulting in a brighter overall complexion.
Do you have products to help me keep breakouts under control?
We recommend: any product in our Therapeutic Acne collection. Our acne products contain Salicylic Acid (BHA) and/or Glycolic Acid (AHA) which prevent future blemishes and breakouts while decreasing oil production and balancing the skin. Products are designed to clear skin by loosening sebum (excess oil production) within the pores, removing bacteria, and exfoliating surface dead skin cells without over drying.
What products should I use to exfoliate and clarify my skin?
Exfoliation is one of the most important parts of achieving healthy looking skin. All Peter Thomas Roth scrubs are formulated with the purest and most active ingredients available to allow the skin to achieve a healthy and radiant glow. All of our scrubs are designed to retexture and refine the skin surface and can be used on a daily basis or as often as needed, allowing for better penetration of treatment products. We recommend: any of our buffing beads scrubs, Un-Wrinkle® Peel Pads, Gentle Complexion Correction Pads™, and Max Complexion Correction Pads™.
