French Women’s Top 3 Beauty Secrets
Pamper yourself weekly (At home)
This tradition is passed on from generation to generation. Sunday is a beauty day for my grandmother, my mother and now myself. It involves a bath with the latest softening body oil, or bath salts to combat cellulite as well as an array of scrubs, eye mask, face mask and hair mask. Of course my mother would finish her weekly beauty routine by her home mani-pedi.
Less is More (Except When It Comes to Skincare)
While French women likely forgo heavy makeup on a daily basis, they never skimp on skincare. I recommend the layering technique: “toner, followed by serum, plus a day/night moisturizer, plus foundation, plus sunscreen.” Finish by spraying on a light mist of rose water or Evian thermal water to calm skin and give it a dewy effect.
From silicones to parabens, French ladies don’t want synthetics anywhere near their hair or skin. “We look for simplicity before everything else,” We are devoted to plant- and flower-based ingredients like olive oil, honey, shea butter, and grape extracts. It’s no wonder that some of French favorite brands rely on these powerhouse ingredients: Nuxe employs honey in many of its healing products.
When in Doubt, Fake It
The key to mimicking French style? Confidence and good products.
