French Beauty. It is a category of its own, effortlessly chic and minimal. French women are well known for their elegant look, from fashion to makeup, hair care, and skin care. Make a french hair braid, take a glass of fine French wine, sit comfortably, imagine that you are in Paris, and learn the skincare secrets of French women and live like a french girl.
Believe it or not, one of their top skincare secrets is to hydrate to the full, inside and outside, for the name of the youthful and radiant skin. They drink plenty of water throughout the day, one glass before they sleep and one after they wake up. French girls love products based on water and most of them – if not all – they always have a mist in their bags to refresh their face and body.

No, I am not going to talk about Scotish Showers. French women swear about this skincare secret/hack. They like steam showers like hell, but they like finishing their showers with cold water for a better blood circulation and firmer skin.
Your face has muscles too, not just your body. French girls know pretty well the glorious anti-aging and relaxing benefits of facial massage. It relieves tension, allows creams to absorbed better into the skin, increases circulation, and acts like a facelift (firm skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines). You don’t need to visit an aesthetician, or someone expert in a spa center to have a facial massage. If you don’t have time to visit have a professional face massage or not enough money (at the moment – because we are always optimistic here -) no worries babes! You can make your self a facial massage! Just apply your hydration cream with gentle circular and upward moves for 5-10 minutes and then make few facial expression to rock it better.
Get the Twin-Ball Facial Massager by Body Shop ($30) | thebodyshop.com and use it with your favorite cream or also get the Lifactiv Supreme Firming Anti-Aging Cream by Vichy ($42) | vichyusa.com, rumors (all over the internet) say that this cream will be one of the best lifting creams in 2018.
Extended Face Care
Every French woman that treats her body like her temple, she extends her face care to her neck and decollete. From creams to scrubs, mists, massages, everything! We must take care our neck and decollete as French women, not just because it will look better because they are an extension of our face, but because they are often exposed to different weather (cold, humid, hot etc) and atmospheric (dust, dirt etc) conditions.
