Have you ever wondered why everyone is switching up their skin care routine? I did too at one point. Did my research, and wished I’ve found out the benefits a lot sooner. Switching your skin care during spring time helps your skin prepare for the blazing hot summer days. Same goes for switching your products during late fall or early winter so your skin can be ready as the temperature drops. To simplify, consider this post as your “Spring Beauty Edit” guide.
In my opinion, if your skin care routine isn’t working for you, it’s either you’re using the products in the wrong season or it’s not compatible for your skin type. Just because it worked for you, doesn’t mean it will work for someone else that you know. It’s as simple as that. However, there are products that are universal that works, combat and fight skin issues for all skin types. You just have to learn the A-B-C’s of skin care and choose which one is for you.
Here’s a short cheat list:
Thick serum & moisturizers are meant for the cold days.
Watery type and lightweight serum & moisturizer are for the warmer days.
To bring this post together and to find out what product works best for my skin type (combination) I had a direct skincare consultation with one of Paula’s Choice professional rep. She then recommended a full customized treatment plan that caters to my concerns – aging, enlarged pores and fine lines. If you’re wondering … what fine lines? I am starting to see signs of 11 or frown lines in between my brows. I suppose that’s what I get for having a very “expressive” facial reaction.
Resist Perfectly Balanced Cleanser » preserves skin’s protective barrier as it easily removes oil and makeup while it leaves skin feeling soft and completely refreshed. My previous cleanser strips my face of natural essential oils which eventually results to irritation and occasional rosacea. This cleanser maintains the perfect balance while deep cleansing as well as removing stubborn makeup. I’d deem this product as an instant favorite and a holy grail for those who have normal, oily or combination skin type.
Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner » visibly refines enlarged pores as it builds collagen (for visibly firmer skin) and diminish red marks from breakouts. Great for removing every last bit of dirt and grime as well as balancing out the pH level of my skin. Infused with skin-repairing ingredients that revitalizes and soothes.
Resist Daily Pore-Refining Treatment 2% BHA » unclogs and refine pores while it smooths skin’s texture by gently removing dead skin cells as well as reduce signs of aging. An instant favorite product for its antimicrobial properties as well as pore-refining ingredients. It’s been a long battle and finally, I’ve found the right product for this pressing concern. BHA is best suited for my enlarged pores as it works by exfoliating the surface and penetrates deep within to work its magic but does not go beyond the inside of the pore lining.
Resist Weekly Retexturizing Foaming Treatment 4% BHA » reveals a dramatically younger looking skin as it visibly reduces wrinkles and unclogs pores. This stronger concentration added to my weekly treatment quickly showed me the result I am hoping to achieve. It doesn’t irritate and can be layered with multiple products.

Resist Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 » prevents visible signs of aging as it minimizes the appearance of pores and promotes visibly firmer, youthful skin.
Calm Redness Relief Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin » moisturizes, calms and soothes extra sensitive skin with its non-irritating ingredients. This gem took me by surprise for its soothing formula that instantly calms redness and irritation. Great for a lightweight overnight moisturizer, or for a quick boost after a tiring travel or flight. Maintains the skin barrier with antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients that works for all skin types.
Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum » reduces dark spots, repairs wrinkles and sun damage as it builds skin-firming collagen. After 2 weeks with this retinol, I have seen a slight change on my frown lines. It isn’t to a point where my lines is very visible … but with makeup, the depressed area is quite apparent. Looking forward to a much more improved appearance of my wrinkles over the course of time with this exclusive formula.
Want to know a secret? I don’t have perfect skin. Just like the majority of women that I know. Sure, there are a few who were born with glorious, supple skin like that of a new-born baby … but I’m not one of them. Luckily, our day and age offers groundbreaking skin care products that literally help resolve numerous skin problems – just like Paula’s Choice. In fact, their product line includes something for everyone (acne, rosacea, aging, enlarged pores, wrinkles, etc. – they have a solution for it all). Not only that, they also offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee (within 60 days) and they don’t perform animal testing or use irritating dyes or fragrances.
