Paula's Choice Skincare Routine

frequent readers of this blog know that i am a perpetual hunter of skincare products. my skin is in constant flux from changing hormones and changing seasons and with each change my needs evolve a bit. with winter ending and spring beginning i need some products that will help soothe the damage done from the dry indoor heat of winter and the harsh cold humid air of the outdoors.

Paula's Choice felt like a great option, many of my girlfriends and fellow bloggers have used their products and have been raving about them for years. i was contacted by a Paula's Choice skincare consultant to help create a custom regime that would work best for my skin. after hearing my needs and my primary skincare concerns they recommended i try the products from Paula's Choice 'CALM' Line including:

1.   Calm Redness Relief Cleanser gentle cleanser for normal/oily skin 
2.   Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner helps balance skin so its oily areas do not worsen. redness is reduced while slightly dry, flaky areas are made smooth and soft.
3.   Calm Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant lightweight lotion texture that works to reveal smooth, clear skin by exfoliating both the skin's surface and inside the pore. because BHA helps reshape the pore lining, it unclogs pores and exfoliates the built up layers on the outside of skin while improving cell turnover rate. the result is healthier, smoother skin.
4.   Calm Redness Relief SPF 30 Moisturizer gentle, mineral-based sunscreen for normal to oily skin moisturizes and prevents signs of aging. works well as a makeup base.
1.   CALM Cleanser
2.   Skin Balancing Toner
3.   CALM 1% BHA Lotion
4.   Calm Redness Relief Moisturizer for normal/oily skin. Lightweight nighttime moisturizer is designed to hydrate repair for smoother skin.

the products worked great to soothe my irritated skin. i always hit a few speed bumps when starting a full regimen but once you commit to doing it it seems to take no time at all. it felt so good to have my skin taken care of, especially during a time when my skin would normally be stressing out.
