Frequently asked questions
How do I determine my skin type?
Take our test! Follow these simple steps to determine which skin type you have:
- 1. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and wait 15-30 minutes.
- 2. Don’t apply any products during this time.
- 3. Determine your skin type based on your skin’s natural characteristics.
Normal: no dryness, flakiness or oiliness – just normal
Dry: tight, dehydrated, flaky, dull
Oily: shiny, excess sebum all over
Combination: usually an oily T-zone and normal/dry everywhere else
Do I need an essential routine or advanced routine?
If you’re new to Paula’s Choice products, you want to spend as little time as possible on your routine or you don’t have any major skin issues, then you might consider starting out with the basics.
To keep skin in good, healthy condition, every essential routine should include the following products:
- Step 1: Cleanser
- Step 2: Exfoliant
- Step 3 (AM): Daytime moisturizer with SPF
- Step 3 (PM): Nighttime moisturizer
To address more complex concerns spanning from wrinkles, sun damage, breakouts or blackheads, an advanced routine may be best to boost results or target stubborn areas. Check out how to personalize your skin care routine or just ask our customer care team!
What is the best routine for my skin?
To keep skin healthy, radiant and smooth you should treat your skin gently at all times. This way, you allow your skin to stimulate normal collagen production and your skin is able to protect itself against harmful external influences. We base our product development on scientific research. Efficacy of the ingredients and products are paramount. That is why you won't find irritating fragrances in our products, why we don't sell products in jars, and why all our day creams have a minimum SPF of 30.
Need help finding the best products for your skin? Provide our skincare experts with the following information so that they can offer you personalised advice:
- What is your skin type: normal to dry, very dry, oily or combination? (if you have combination skin, does your skin tend to be more oily/dry or oily/normal?)
- Do you suffer from pimples, blackheads, enlarged pores, wrinkles, dull skin or pigmentation marks?
- Do you have sensitive skin or is your skin sensitive to rosacea or eczema?
- Are you looking for a basic routine or an advanced routine?
- What is your texture preference for products- light-weight or rich textured?

Why are some Paula's Choice products available in America but not in Europe?
This is due to the fact that there are differences between the regulations for cosmetic products in the United States (US) and in the European Union (EU). This is especially true for the use of certain ingredients in cosmetics. In addition, some products in the USA are considered cosmetics, while these products are considered in the EU as medication.
