Joelle Ciocco is an internationally recognized French beauty expert who shares her best tips for flawless and healthy skin. She opened the Centre de Soins Joelle Ciocco in Paris, where you can consult her about beauty advice and skin concerns. In addition, she formulates skincare with customized solutions to meet the needs of each unique skin type. She’s an expert of the skin, a biochemist and she is also working for L’Oréal as a Global Facial Expert.

At the end of the consultation, she defines a “skin’s identity card”. And a personal “skin prescription” to correct inappropriate habits which disturb the balance of your skin.

5 Skin Tips From French Skincare Joelle Ciocco

1. Double Cleansing

Always clean your skin at the end of the day, before going to bed. Joelle Ciocco is ‘the queen of cleanser’ because she believes that not removing makeup or impurities damages your skin and accelerates the aging process. She recommends cleansing twice your skin. A first cleansing to remove the makeup, and a second one to remove impurities, pollution, and dead skin cells. According to her, it’s not necessary to cleanse your skin in the morning. You only need to refresh your skin with a gentle floral toner.

2. Never Use Makeup Wipes

Joelle Ciocco has a strong opinion on makeup wipes: never use it! According to her, makeup wipes don’t effectively clean your skin. Instead, they just smear dirt, bacteria, oil, and makeup across the face. Also, makeup wipes can be irritative to the skin. Many makeup wipes are packed with ingredients like SD alcohol 40 and denatured alcohol which can dehydrate your skin.

3. The Higher SPF The Better

Joëlle Ciocco’s advice regarding sunscreen is very simple. If you’re going to expose your skin to the sun use a high SPF (prefer mineral sunscreens if you have sensitive skin). The highest SPF the better. Because as we all know, the sun makes you age prematurely. However, there is no need to use SPF on a daily basis. Indeed, if you know you will be all day at work, sunscreen is useless in this case.

4. Face Oil For Every Skin Type

Joëlle Ciocco recommends to use face oil on a daily basis, it can work really well for all skin types, even oily skins can use it! Oil is a hydrating hero product as it retains water, protects skin from environmental damage and plumps out parched skin. It’s better to apply oils at night to give them time to sink right into the skin and to prevent messy makeup.

5. Less Is More

Your skin care routine shouldn’t contain too many cosmetics, from too many different brands. Joëlle Ciocco explains that using a high number of different cosmetics can make your skin more sensitive and can cause irritations or skin allergic reactions. Quality is better than quantity.
