today, i’m introducing Paula’s Choice a skincare line that’s new to me but might not be new to many of my readers. other than sharing my daily outfit, a great recipe or two, i also love to share information with you. are you ready to learn about the energetic founder of Paula’s Choice? Paula Begoun is a nationally recognized expert in the cosmetics industry with appearances on CNN, Oprah, The Today Show; the list goes on and on. plus, this dynamic woman has 20+ best selling books to her credit. after struggling with eczema and acne for years, she became interested in skincare. somewhere along the way, she began to read the labels and discovered she had regularly put harmful ingredients on her face. so she began to educate herself on ingredients and learned what worked and more importantly what didn’t.
needless to say, i was impressed by Paula’s credentials and eager to try her skincare line. and let me tell you this is an affordable and extensive line geared towards your skin type: normal to dry, normal to oily, and combination skin. what impressed me was this: if you have a specific concern, e.g., brown spots, redness or wrinkles Paula’s Choice offers a solution. currently, i’m testing Resist anti-aging skincare line.
for today’s post, i thought i would share my morning skincare regimen. it’s always good to mix up your routine from time-to-time. while i always use a cleanser, i go for periods of time when i don’t use a toner. when i bring it back into my routine i’m reminded that toners preserve and reinforce my skin’s barrier. and i love how my skin feels refreshed.
serum entered into my skincare program about a year ago. why add a serum, i thought? well, i discovered it helps fight against environmental attack as it penetrates deeper into the skin to deliver a high concentration of ingredients. Paula’s Choice serum contains an impressive range of plant and vitamin-derived oxidants, plus vitamin C to do just that.
eye cream is a must at my age. i never miss this step as the skin around the eye is more fragile and prone to dryness. i loved how Paula’s Choice anti-aging eye cream visibly improved plumpness.
next in my morning skincare routine is a moisturizer. Paula’s Choice Resist Skin Restoring Moisturizer contains an SPF 50. it hydrates and protects with superstar ingredients like niacinamide, shea butter, and licorice. i am loving these natural ingredients.
that’s my morning skincare routine in a nutshell – cleanser, eye cream, serum, and moisturizer. once or twice a week i substitute my cleanser for an exfoliant to slough off dead skin cells. it’s important to point out Paula’s Choice Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment is meant to be used daily because this AHA exfoliant is left on your face. use this product after cleansing and toning and before adding serum. the formula contains glycolic acid that continually revitalizes my skin’s texture. wow! i love the addition of this step. and my skin does too. didn’t i tell you it’s important to mix up your skincare routine from time-to-time?
i will quickly mention that Paula’s Choice also sent along Resist C15 Super Booster. ladies, if you haven’t added vitamin C to your skincare regimen, you might want to think twice. last year i started using vitamin C at night right before bed. the addition of this one ingredient visibly brightened my skin tone, and i am a big vitamin C fan. what i noticed about Paula’s Choice Resist C15 is that it contains 15% pure vitamin C. it was refreshing to read this valuable information on the label.
okay, gang, you might be wondering where you can find more information about Paula’s Choice. here’s a link to her website. there’s a wealth of information over there.
