Good to know before you start using your exfoliant.
It is best to gradually build up use of a BHA product. Start by using your exfoliant once every other day and then increase usage to once or twice daily based on your skin’s response. You need to experiment a bit to see what suits your skin best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
The Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant feels a bit sticky/greasy on my face. Why is that?
If the BHA is feeling sticky, you are probably using too much product. The average amount needed is the size of a small coin, and it’s best to apply it in a thin layer. The ‘greasy’ feel can be attributed to the high levels of glycol in this product (glycol helps the BHA penetrate the surface layers of skin and also works as a water-binding agent). If you live in a humid, moist climate, this effect will be more pronounced and, if too much product is used, can create a ‘greasy’ feel on the skin.
What is the main difference between Resist Anti-aging Youth-extending Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 and Resist Anti-Aging Super-light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30?
Resist the Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 has a fantastic light texture that is ideal if you have oily skin prone to breakouts and blackheads. Resist Super-Light SPF 30 is formulated with a mineral sunscreen, which makes it more suitable for people with sensitive, oily skin. The mineral filter provides a slightly more mattifying effect than Resist Hydrating Fluid SPF 50. Resist Super-light SPF 30 has a touch of colour to help skin look more even-toned.
What is the difference between the Water-Infusing Electrolyte Night Cream and other night creams from Paula's Choice?
All Paula's Choice night creams have their own unique properties. Do you have a dehydrated skin? Then the Water-Infusing Electrolyte Night Cream is very suitable. Do you have dry to very dry skin? Then you can also opt for the Skin Recovery Night Cream or the Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Night Cream. Do you have normal skin with some dry spots? Then the Omega + Complex Night Cream (rich in omega fatty acids) is a good choice. For normal to combination skin, it is best to choose the Water-Infusing Electrolyte Night Cream or the Defense Night Cream (for extra protection against air pollution). Do you have combination to oily skin? Then we recommend that you use the Skin Balancing Night Cream.
