Skincare Routine with Paula's Choice products

Thanks to Paula’s Choice for sponsoring this informative post and giveaway!

When it comes to wedding day beauty, it all starts with having an ideal canvas upon which to place your makeup. That means getting your skin in good condition leading up to the big day. Just like anything worth having or any goal you’re working towards, getting good skin takes practice– it’s not something you can leave until the last minute. Getting your skin to look its best means developing a pre-wedding skincare routine using products that work for your specific skin concerns and needs.

Paula's Choice Pre-Wedding Skincare Routine

You might be saying, “But I’m not a skincare expert!” Don’t worry your pretty little head. The specialists over at Paula’s Choice share tons of expert skincare advice to help you put together the perfect product combinations to suit your skin. Whether you want to fight the signs of aging, eliminate acne, or protect and treat your sensitive skin, Paula’s Choice has products to address every concern.


Personally, I have combination skin. I’ve always dealt with excess oil, especially in my T-Zone. I also have large pores around my nose and some blackheads. I don’t have a ton of breakouts these days, but they do occasionally flare up, but thankfully my skin isn’t super sensitive. Since I’m in my thirties, I do want to use products that help me keep wrinkles at bay, especially around my eye area.


Based on my personal skincare needs, I followed the advice for building the perfect skincare routine. Paula’s Choice sent me the following products to use at morning and night:

This combination of products is meant to address and tackle all my various skin concerns. I’ve only been using them for about a week but I’m already seeing positive results! When it comes to skincare, the best time to get started (if you haven’t already) is now! Visit Paula’s Choice and build your own skincare routine kit. You can also choose to stop from their Skincare Kits if you have a pretty standard, single area of concern.


Skincare is one of those areas that I personally feel is worth the splurge. You and your skin are in this life thing together for the long haul, so it’s important to treat it with love and care. If you want to get some of these fab products from Paula’s Choice for yourself, I’d suggest checking out their exfoliants. Honestly, the Skin Perfecting BHA Liquid is by far my favorite product they offer, so if you only get one item, that’s the one I recommend!
