SKIN RECOVERY

Translated with online translator

“Skin recovery was bitterly necessary! Recently I told you about my not working day care. Thereupon I got the tip from one of my friends (my beauty expert of confidence) that I use quite a potpourri of ingredients. In addition, many products contained perfumes that I can’t handle very well anyway. This should change with the care of Paula’s Choice. I showed you the products on Instagram some time ago.

In today’s article I not only tell you about my new care routine, but also about the effect of fruit acid peelings, as well as the difference between a synthetic and mineral UV filter. A little more beauty knowledge can never hurt!

Truth in Beauty – PAULA’S CHOICE

Paula’s Choice was founded in 1994 by Paula Begoun. She suffered especially from acne and eczema, but her skin care products only worsened her concern. This led her to question the ingredients of her skin care products. She started to intensively deal with the ingredients.

  • With horror she found out that she regularly applied dangerous ingredients such as acetone (!!).

Paula Begoun learned which ingredients have which effects. She worked in the cosmetics department of a department store. There she caused excitement, because she refused to sell in her eyes ineffective anti-aging products. Her honesty went to the press. Several appearances in over 20 bestselling books, public appearances and more followed. After ten years she launched her own beauty line, Paula’s Choice.

For the right choice of the care lines there is online the Paula’s Choice “Routine Finder” or one can be advised in addition personally by telephone. I made use of the latter. After a very informative conversation the Skin Recovery – line of Paula’s Choice was recommended according to my skin type.

My new grooming routine

I never use cleaning products in the morning and do not deviate from this routine even with the new products. So at the moment my day starts only with and after the Skin Recovery Day Cream LSF 30 (34€ / 60ml).

In the evening I clean my face with the Skin Recovery cleanser – (23€ / 237ml), followed by the Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling (33€ / 100ml). In the evening the night care Skin Recovery Moisturizing Cream (31€ / 60ml) provides sufficient moisture.

Daily care with SPF 30 UVA & UVB

For me personally it was very important to use finite a day care with sun protection factor (best not only UV-A, but also UV-B). My skin is super susceptible to redness and sunlight anyway. I am very satisfied with the day care with LSF 30 from Paula’s Choice.

Were you aware that sun protection factors can be divided into a mineral or synthetic UV filter?

The Skin Recovery Day Care contains natural mineral solar filters Titanium Dioxide. These act like small mirrors that reflect the UV radiation, making the filter work immediately. This is especially beneficial for sensitive skin.

synthetic UV filters, such as homos lettuce or avobenzone, absorb UV radiation into the skin. They work best when left to work for at least 20 minutes.

Paula’s Choice product lines contain both mineral and synthetic UV filters. You can find more information here.

Who of you uses a day care with LSF?

Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling

I came across Fruit acid peelings over and over again Instagram and honestly had no idea how they work. There are two types of fruit acid peelings:

    • Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid (short AHA)
      and
    • Beta-hydroxy acid (short BHA)

I never use cleaning products in the morning and do not deviate from this routine even with the new products.
So at the moment my day starts only with and after the
Skin Recovery Day Cream LSF 30 (34€ / 60ml). In the evening I clean my face with the Skin Recovery facial cleaner – (23€ / 237ml), followed by the Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling (33€ / 100ml).

Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling

I came across Fruit acid peelings over and over again Instagram and honestly had no idea how they work. There are two types of fruit acid peelings:

      • Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid (short AHA)
        and
      • Beta-hydroxy acid (short BHA)

AHA-peelings and BHA-peelings clean the sebaceous pores from the inside. In addition, dead skin cells remove and renew the skin surface. All this leads to a refined facial appearance.

The consistency of Skin Perfecting AHA Gel Peelings is a very light gel. When applied, it penetrates quickly into the skin and does not leave a sticky feeling. The gel peeling is left to act on the skin and is not washed off afterwards. I had also heard that fruit acid peelings can react differently to the skin. I had no initial problems with the application. However, the gel should not be applied to the eye area. From Reflex, as with the application of a serum, I applied it nevertheless in the eye area. Result: yes it burns, but also goes away again. As you know, you learn from mistakes. In the initial phase I applied AHA-Gel only 1x in the evening, meanwhile I apply it 2x daily.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the Skin Recovery line from Paula’s Choice and I tolerate the products very well. At the moment I only miss one serum in the current skin care line that provides ultimate moisture.

The products are free of skin-irritating fragrances and therefore have a slight inherent odour, which fortunately disappears after a few minutes. Previously I had used very strong perfumed products, so I had to get used to them. Otherwise, I have nothing to complain about at the moment and will order the matching serum soon.
