My Paula’s Choice Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

Anti-aging skin care is an essential to keep my 32-year-old skin in its best condition. I don’t know about you, but, I would like to avoid fine lines, wrinkles, and the rapid decline of collagen and elastin that comes with aging, for as long as possible. The good news is- I think that’s all possible without breaking the bank (insert angels singing). So, today I am going to show you my anti-aging skincare routine using Paula’s Choice, which, by the way, has been one of the most read about skincare lines on Citizens of Beauty. In fact, I have even shown it off on live television. That’s how much I like it.

Paulas choice anti-aging skincare products on a budget

Over the years, I have tried lots of Paula’s Choice skincare products, so I obviously already had a few must-haves from this line. However, in conversation with a Paula’s Choice skincare expert, she and I agreed that I should incorporate a few other products into my skincare routine as well. It was fun, as an esthetician and skincare expert myself, to hop on a phone call to discuss with another expert new and exciting products that will give me the results I am craving. It’s all about teamwork my beauty loving friends, and sometimes it takes a village. Am I right?

So, let’s talk about what I am using from Paula’s Choice for my anti-aging skincare routine. I am going to break it down into AM and PM and then a 3rd category that I will call the emergency kit. But first, I want to talk about the actual products I am showing you today so that you have something to refer to as you use this guide for your skincare routine.


  1. RESIST Optimal Hydrating Cleanser: This is a fragrance-free and non-irritating, hydrating cleanser that’s safe for all skin types. It soothes and protects the skin while gently removing makeup and leaving your skin moisturized and balanced in the process. ($18.00)
  2. RESIST Advanced Replenishing Toner: Good for all skin types, this fragrance-free and non-irritating toner helps to build collagen for firmer skin. It also helps to calm down skin that is easily irritated. ($23.00)
  3. RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster: Hold’s 1,000 times its weight in water, making this an excellent choice for keeping moisture in the skin. This Hyaluronic Acid is also formulated with Ceramides, another ingredient for helping skin hold moisture. These two ingredients together make this product a powerhouse formulation. ($45.00)
  4. RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer: This product has my beloved anti-aging ingredient; Retinol! It reduces wrinkles, fights multiple signs of aging, and keeps the skin hydrated with a light lotion base. Also, this retinol skincare product is fragrance-free and for all skin types. ($32.00)
  5. CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer: If you have normal to dry skin, this broad spectrum SPF is for you. It helps to moisturize the skin while keeping it protected from harmful sun rays. In addition to that goodness, this also has antioxidants to block free-radicals cell-communicating peptides. ($28.00)
  6. CLEAR Daily Skin Clearing Treatment: For blemish prone skin or annoying random breakouts, this 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide is a must-have. It helps to immediately reduce the blemishes you want to disappear. ($13.60)
  7. Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid: One of the best anti-aging exfoliating acids for the skin is Salicylic. It reduces redness and builds collagen, as well as helps to unclog and reduce enlarged pores. ($28.00)
  8. CALM Redness Relief Repairing Serum: Calm Redness Relief was created specifically for people with sensitive skin. It’s an anti-oxidant enriched serum that helps to soothe and protect by reinforcing the skin’s protective barrier. ($32.00)


Now that you are a bit more familiar with these products, I am going to show you my Paula’s Choice anti-aging skincare routine. Every product I am using has a purpose for promoting a healthier and more vibrant, glowing skin. Now, get your pen and paper out to take some notes and copy my routine.

While this seems like a big routine, it’s not. I have three kids, so I get that time is an actual thing and that extra time is not a thing. I also get that we only have one skin, yup, just one. So, you and I had better take care of it. My Paula’s Choice Anti-Aging routine takes about 6 minutes daily, and that includes my AM and PM system.

Even better than that is the price you will pay for all of this. Get this, you can get my entire Paula’s Choice Anti-Aging skincare routine for only $191.60! It’s like luxury skincare for people on a budget. Do you even know what a deal that is? I have spent more cash on just one skincare product before.
