PAULA’S STORY: IN HER OWN WORDS
At the age of 11 I began a tormented struggle with acne. I tried numerous skin-care products and medical treatments. Yet my skin didn’t get better. Then at the age of 25 (and I’ll never forget this moment), I read the ingredient label on a skin-care product I was using and the fourth ingredient was acetone. That’s nail polish remover! No wonder my skin wasn’t getting better. From that moment on I read all of the research I could find on skin care and eventually I was able to put together a skin-care routine that completely transformed my skin.
After suffering for all of those years, I wanted to do everything possible to prevent others from going through the same pain. So I started writing books and doing TV appearances to tell the world which skin-care products really work. I have since written a total of 20 books, including the current edition of my book Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me.
In 1995, at the request of thousands of my readers, I decided to use my years of research on skin-care ingredients to create my own skin-care line, Paula’s Choice. I use only proven ingredients that will truly make your skin look younger, radiant, and wrinkle- and acne-free.
