How is the Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator different from the other Paula's Choice facial moisturizers?
Resist Clear Skin Hydrator is a state-of-the-art formula specifically designed to address the advanced needs of those concerned with the frustrating combination of wrinkles and breakouts.
Resist Clear Skin Hydrator contains a special complex of ingredients that works to repair signs of aging as it helps keep skin clear and encourage healing of discolorations (red marks) from breakouts. And because it's a moisturizer, it also provides hydration for smoother, softer, younger-looking skin.
Despite the advanced nature of this formula, it bears the formulary hallmarks of every Paula's Choice facial moisturizer. All of them are designed to supply skin with what it needs to look and feel its best.
How come Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator doesn't contain retinol?
Although retinol is an anti-aging superstar ingredient, it's important to keep in mind that it is not the only superstar to consider. Paula and her team developed this unique formula around the benefits of niacinamide with stabilized vitamin C and a specialized skin-clearing complex. Between these and other key ingredients such as antioxidants, skin that's showing signs of aging yet still breaking out is able to repair itself and help reduce signs of past breakouts. If you wish to add a product with retinol to your anti-aging routine, consider one of our serums (note that the Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum does not contain retinol).
Do I still need to use my anti-acne products with this moisturizer?
Yes. Although we'd love it if this weren't true, the fact is that it requires more than one product to keep acne in check. Essential are a gentle, water-soluble cleanser, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) exfoliant that contains salicylic acid, and a topical disinfectant medicated with benzoyl peroxide. Using these types of products along with Resist Clear Skin Hydrator ensures you're combining the right ingredients to manage breakouts while also helping your skin look and act younger.
I keep depressing the pump, but no product is coming out.
This product is packaged in an airless pump dispenser which utilizes a vacuum system to dispense and keep the contents fresh. Airless packaging helps to keep air and contaminants out of the product, which enhances the formula's stability and effectiveness.
When using your product for the first time, you may need to “prime” the dispenser. To prime, simply pump the dispenser slowly about 10-15 times. If the dispenser stops working at any time, simply repeat the "priming" step. Do not attempt to dismantle the package.
