How a French beauty blogger cares for her skin
I read so many articles and blog posts about French beauty secrets, French skincare routine and how French take care of their skin, most of them written by non-French beauty bloggers or foreigner journalists that I wanted to write a blog post about this topic.

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”
Ready to commit to the French skincare routine? French women emphasize skincare over makeup, and it’s not a myth. I’ve been taught to care for my skin very young and to focus more on maintaining a clean and healthy skin rather than covering it up with makeup. French women seek out natural, sometimes organic but always high-quality beauty products and often stick to a simple 3-step routine: cleanse, tone, moisturize. Today, I want to share with you a step-by-step guide to a French skincare routine for a flawless and healthy skin. Continue reading “French Skincare Routine For Flawless Skin”
