Paula’s Choice Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion-10% AHA and La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Sunscreen

Summertime can be unforgiving, especially when it comes to your skin. Yes, the warmer months are meant to be spent frolicking around in shorts, skirts, and gorgeous summer dresses. However, the increased sun exposure can also make your skin dry and flaky, which has become a problem of mine this summer.

I’ve recently come across some of Paula’s choice products and I can honestly say that I’m impressed. Her skin revealing body lotion with 10% alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) has become a staple in my beauty regimen. AHAs are some of my most FAVORITE skin care ingredients. I love them because they exfoliate dead skin cells gently and effectively, thereby brightening and softening the skin. I was so excited when I first stumbled upon this product. I’ve found it quite challenging to find an exfoliating body lotion. Not a lot of beauty companies make such products for the body.

Overall, I’m quite pleased with this product. This particular body exfoliant gently removes my flaky skin and moisturizes the skin with Shea Butter and Grape Seed Oil. It’s also very soothing on the skin. It has Chamomile extract and Green tea, which doubles as an effective antioxidant. It is also fragrance free, so it’s perfect for those who are especially sensitive to fragrance. With regular, nightly use, I’ve noticed that my sensitive skin has become smoother, brighter, and more even. I’ve also noticed less irritation after shaving! Although, please DO NOT apply this product on freshly shaven legs because it WILL sting. I learned this the hard way! 🙂

I mainly use this at night, seeing as to how AHAs can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. And I ALWAYS put sunscreen on in the morning. I think it’s so important that you implement a good sunscreen into your routine when using this product.

My sunscreen of choice is La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 60. I’ve been using this product for a few years and It’s become a holy grail product. I can’t live without it. It absorbs quickly into the skin leaving a matte, velvety finish without any of that white, streaky business. I also LOVE that it’s very HIGH protection–it’s SPF 60 and water resistant for approximately 80 minutes!

You can find the Paula’s Choice Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion ($27) here and the La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Sunscreen ($36) here.  Although, you may also find La Roche-Posay at Ulta and few, select Target stores.
