How is PC4Men Nighttime Repair different from the other Paula’s Choice treatments with retinol?
PC4Men Nighttime Repair is actually identical to our original Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol, but packaged to be part of the PC4Men line. We knew this hydrating formula would be a hit with the guys because of its weightless quality and positive effects on all skin types. Like the Resist Barrier Repair, PC4Men Nighttime Repair also delivers several proven anti-aging ingredients (including retinol) for younger, healthier, stronger skin.
The percentage of retinol needed for efficacy is generally between 0.01% and 1%, which is quite a range, but further proof of just how powerful retinol is! For more on percentages of retinol in Paula’s Choice products, see our article Which Strength of Retinol Do I Need?
All of these products may be used with PC4Men Nighttime Repair or on their own, as each treats skin to a beneficial range of anti-aging ingredients.
If my skin doesn’t feel dry at night after I wash my face, do I still need to use this?
For a true improvement in the health and appearance of your skin, yes. Using a well-formulated moisturizer isn’t just about dealing with dry skin. Even if your skin doesn’t look or feel dry, applying a lightweight moisturizer loaded with anti-aging and skin repairing ingredients stacks the deck in your favor! Each night, you’re giving your skin key ingredients that train it to resist signs of aging, be firmer, and look younger. Think of it as an important nightly step to keep your skin fit and in great shape.
My doctor has me using a prescription vitamin A cream. Is PC4Men Nighttime Repair compatible with such a product?
Yes! At night, after cleansing, apply your prescription vitamin A cream as directed by your physician, then follow with PC4Men Nighttime Repair. During the day, it’s essential for you to protect your skin with a broad-spectrum SPF product. PC4Men Daytime Protect SPF 30 is ideal.
What if there isn’t a product for my needs in PC4MEN?
No problem! Chances are, there’s a Paula’s Choice product in one of our other collections that will get the job done—without any fancy (re: girly) packaging or fragrance. Our Clear line is a great add-on for men struggling with moderate to severe acne, or you can mix and match between Clear and PC4MEN as needed. Same thing if you see a product in any of our other lines (Resist, Skin Balancing, Earth Sourced, etc.) that you think may work best for your skin type or concerns.
