Dressed in a crisp white blouse and skinny leather pants, actress Kelly Rutherford (of Gossip Girl fame) looked radiant and cheery one recent early morning at Peter Thomas Roth's Park Avenue offices. Several episodes of Gossip Girl were filmed at Roth’s house, and Rutherford is the newly appointed global face of the PTR brand.
“I have been using his products since my twenties, which is a long time ago,” said Rutherford. “I think of him when I’m in the shower,” she joked in reference to Roth’s bath products.
Tapped for spring skincare advice, Roth said, “Sunscreen is your first line of defense." Luckily for those who haven’t been diligent with sunscreen application in the past, Roth has multiple products for dark spots and wrinkles. His soon-to-debut CC Eye Correcting Concealer ($42) is the first on the market to contain SPF 30.
Meanwhile, Rutherford supplements her Peter Thomas Roth regimen with advice from an equally trusted skincare source—her mother. "The one thing she always said was try not to sleep on your face at night as much, which I do. And the other thing is to make sure you invest in really good products for your skin, and to wash your face at night.”
The new Peter Thomas Roth skincare line launches on QVC April 10 and in retail stores on May 1.
