Achieve Even Skin Tone

Uneven skin tone can be caused by many things but certainly goes hand in hand with aging and sun exposure if you don’t wear a sunscreen daily. Fortunately, there are products that can make an impressive, noticeable difference. Look for concentrated doses of ingredients proven to brighten dull skin, increase radiance, and refine skin, especially high concentrations of vitamin C.

Our skin-brightening solution: Paula’s Choice RESIST C 15 Super Booster can make a world of difference to diminish uneven, dull skin tone and revitalize your skin to a glowing, more even radiance.

Prevention: Keep your uneven skin tone from coming back by wearing an SPF 30+ moisturizer loaded with antioxidants every day (rain or shine). If you prefer the "naked face" feel, try our light-as-water RESIST Youth Extending Daily Fluid SPF 50. If you have normal to dry skin our skin enriching emollient SKIN RECOVERY Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 will be perfect for you.

Use Retinol for a Firmer-Looking Appearance

Skin loses that youthful firm, lifted appearance primarily due to age and unprotected sun exposure (wearing an SPF 30+ is a must). Experts around the world, including us, know that retinol has the rare status of having the undisputed reputation of a superstar anti-aging ingredient, known to help diminish multiple signs of aging as well as enlarged pores and a rough skin texture.

Our ultimate retinol products: For more advanced signs of aging (like deep wrinkles) our CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment goes above and beyond by including vitamin C, peptides, and skin-replenishing ingredients. It has a light lotion texture and works best for someone with normal to dry skin.

For a lighter weight fluid formula that works perfectly for someone with normal to oily or combination skin try our RESIST 1% Retinol Booster.

Both of these superior retinol formulas can be used every day or every other day depending on how you want to customize your skin care routine.

Exfoliate for the Smoothest Skin Possible

If you’re not already using a daily leave-on AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) or BHA (beta hydroxy acid, also known as salicylic acid) exfoliant, you’re genuinely missing out on a vitally important skin care step! These types of exfoliants gradually, gently, and without skin disturbing abrasion, naturally remove dead skin to reveal an unbelievably smoother, more radiant complexion.

A daily BHA is ideal for dealing with clogged pores. If you have blackheads, acne, or enlarged pores, try our CLEAR Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid. This liquid formula is best for oily or combination skin. /p>

If you have dry skin and clogged pores choose our moisturizing SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant.

A daily AHA is best if surface rough, crepey skin, with loss of firmness are your concerns. It is especially helpful for addressing advanced signs of aging. Our RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA will give you hydrated plumper-looking skin and an ultra-smooth healthy glow.

Astounding Results for the Eye Area

While it's true that no product can completely get rid of shadows or puffiness around the eye area, you can definitely make it look better and improve the appearance of dry, dull, flaky skin that's sagging around your eye area. An extremely emollient cream loaded with skin-replenishing ingredients will temporarily plump and brighten skin and give a tired eye area the moisture it needs to look supple, smooth, and young again.

Our RESIST Anti-Aging Eye Cream is the richest, most advanced eye cream you can use. It's smooth, balm-like texture works fast to replenish even the driest, dullest skin and steadily improves multiple signs of aging. Most importantly it keeps your skin hydrated all night long.

And the Tip that Bests All Others…

The advice above will provide amazing results for your most frustrating skin concerns faster than you thought possible, but it will all be for naught if you don’t practice sun-smart behavior. The path to smoother, younger-looking skin is paved with daily broad-spectrum sun protection. Without that core step, nothing else you do to help diminish signs of aging can give you long terms results because even the best products won’t overcome the type of damage the sun can do to your skin.
