    What makes this product unique?
    If you have oily skin and are concerned about preventing and repairing the signs of aging, RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Fluid SPF 50 is the daytime moisturizer with sunscreen you will love to use every day. Specially formulated with advanced dispersion technology, this first-of-its-kind lotion has a water-light, fluid texture that’s unbelievably weightless yet provides high daily broad-spectrum sun protection that keeps your skin young, smooth, and healthy.

    It goes on feather-light and sets to a non-greasy, soft finish that minimizes the appearance of pores and keeps excess shine in check. A blend of soothing, plant-based antioxidants protects skin from environmental damage and works to fade brown spots and stimulate collagen production for firmer, younger-looking skin. Ideal for use under makeup (so you can skip the foundation primer) and gentle enough for use around the eyes.

    This moisturizer with sunscreen is 100% fragrance and colorant free.

    What does it do?
    RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 supplies anti-wrinkle sun protection from an innovative water-light formula that contains a vital selection of extraordinary antioxidants to fight visible signs of aging and prevent premature aging of skin. Its satin-matte finish leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated, never slick or greasy. It is a daytime anti-aging moisturizer those with oily skin will want to apply every day!

    Who is this product for?
    RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Fluid SPF 50 is for anyone with oily or combination skin concerned with preventing the signs of aging seeking a daily sunscreen that feels super-light and keeps excess oil in check while minimizing enlarged pores.

    Why does this daytime moisturizer have SPF 50 but your others have SPF 25–30?

    This unique sunscreen was formulated for those who need an anti-aging moisturizer with a higher SPF but worry using a product with a higher SPF may cause breakouts. You’ll find this daytime moisturizer with SPF 50 feels so unbelievably light and effective you’ll actually enjoy using it so you can truly have younger, healthier skin, not breakouts!

    Does RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 absorb excess oil as well as the SKIN BALANCING SPF 30, HYDRALIGHT SPF 30, or RESIST Super-Light SPF 30 products?

    Yes, though it always depends on the other products you apply beforehand. For example, if you use an emollient cleanser or moisturizer before applying this sunscreen it will limit its ability to prevent truly effective oil absorption. RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 does a wonderful job keeping excess shine in check when used with the other Resist products designed for oily/combination skin or with the products from our SKIN BALANCING collection. You’ll find this sunscreen does not feel the least bit slick or heavy on skin.

    The RESIST Super Light and HYDRALIGHT SPF 30 formulas are mineral-based, so can be perceived as being more mattifying.

    Does RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 have acne-fighting properties?

    Not directly, but protecting skin from daily sun damage reduces inflammation and that can certainly reduce blemishes. Further, sun protection overall helps skin act younger and therefore breakouts can heal faster and more efficiently than if it were routinely exposed to damaging UV light. One more bonus: The antioxidants this product contains not only help fight multiple signs of aging, they also work to speed healing of red marks from past breakouts!

    Will RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 cause breakouts?

    Although we cannot state with 100% certainty that any product, whether from Paula’s Choice or another brand, won’t cause breakouts, we’re confident stating that it’s extremely unlikely that this daytime moisturizer with sunscreen will cause breakouts. The super-light formula lacks the heavier thickening agents and potentially pore-clogging ingredients found in moisturizers with a creamy texture.

    Is RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 drying? If my skin is dry and I have breakouts, can I use this?

    RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 is best for normal, combination, or oily skin prone to breakouts. Those with dry skin and breakouts are likely to feel this product doesn’t provide the moisture their skin needs, so should consider our Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex SPF 30, which is compatible with other RESIST products. You can also use RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 with a moisturizer underneath such as our Barrier Repair Moisturizer, Moisture Boost Cream or our Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.

    Is RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 suitable if I have rosacea?

    It’s hard to tell exactly what will cause someone with rosacea to have a reaction. Because this is 100% guaranteed you can always try it and see how your skin responds. If you have rosacea and combination to oily skin you can also try our RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 instead.

    Can I use RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50 if I have extra-sensitive skin that breaks out?

    The potential cause for concern is the active ingredients that create this product’s broad-spectrum sunscreen can be a problem for those with extra-sensitive skin but it’s always hard to determine that for each person. Because this product is 100% guaranteed you can always try it to see how it works for your skin type.
