Since I’ve moved to London, I miss so much going every weekend to the French pharmacy! When I was living in Paris this was like my ritual to go at least once a week at the French pharmacy just to see what’s new and pick few products for face and body. I have always been very obsessed with French Pharmacy skincare products. French pharmacy is for me the ultimate health and beauty destination where you can find a full range of affordable and effective beauty products. I love the fact that most of the French pharmacy skincare products have a minimalist and hypo-allergenic formula and that you’ll always find the right product whatever your skin concern is: anti-aging, hydration, oiliness, radiance, or UV protection.
My skin type is combination, sensitive and dehydrated at the same time. I’m always seeking for very gentle skincare products that hydrate my skin without blocking my pores and causing breakouts. In order to inject a bit of French fabulousness into your skincare routine, I’ve saved you some time and I compiled a list of French beauty products must-haves based on products I’ve tried and that are working really well for my skin type. Most of the skincare products that I’ve listed are quite affordable and good news, they are all coming from Boots 🙂 Continue reading “Best French Pharmacy products a French girl swear by”

By exfoliating your skin, you will remove dead skin cells from the surface layer of your skin and improve your skin’s texture and tone as it will bring fresh, new cells to the surface of your skin.

Our skin is subject to both intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging or chronological aging is the unavoidable natural process of skin aging controlled by genetics. Starting in your mid-twenties dermal collagen production decreases as well as melanin production, cellular turnover slows, and your skin begins to show the first signs of aging. On the other hand, extrinsic aging is caused by external factors within our control such as climate, pollution, diet, stress, and skincare!
Most skincare products accelerate the aging process
Chemical ingredients (sulfates, SD alcohol, ethanol, methanol, benzyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, DEA, MEA, TEA, mineral oils) in all our skincare products – and even anti-aging skincare– can actually accelerate aging process Continue reading “Natural anti-aging tips to maintain youthful skin”
