Skin Care Secrets Of French Women
They don't think of skin care as "pampering."
French women realize that a skin care routine — no matter how long it takes or how many products are needed — is a necessary part of life. They know that a little bit of pampering isn't just a luxury. It is about choosing only the best and understanding that you are entitled to have a beauty routine that makes you look and feel beautiful at the same time.
For them, beauty is an "art de vivre" and should give you pleasure, not pain.
They eat well and actually enjoy food.
The French approach to food is fairly simple: Eat well. They take time to enjoy food and sit down to family meals. They eat the best quality they can get, and they don't ruin mealtimes with endless snacking.
With an emphasis on fresh produce, whole grains, olive oil, fish, and some dairy and meat, the typical French diet sounds similar to a Mediterranean-type diet, which we all know is a natural anti-ager. There's no need to go out of your way to get the nutrients your body (and subsequently your skin) needs because eating like this will provide you with everything you need.
They find a skin care routine that works and stick to it.
Maybe it's a slower approach to life in general or a lesson in patience, but for the French, beauty is not something you turn to in a panic when a wrinkle or pimple appears. Rather, it's a ritual in figuring out what works best and sticking with it for life. For many American women, skin care is treated as a remedy when a problem arises, but the French way is much better: take preventive steps so you never need to treat.
They take cold showers.
Blame it on pre-Napoleon plumbing, but many Frenchwomen never got into the habit of taking long, steamy showers. It's more common to take warm showers and finish with a jolt of cold water to tone and firm the skin by enhancing circulation.
They recognize that skin care extends beyond the face.
And we're not talking décolletage (though making sure to extend skin care down your neck and chest is important, too!). No, the idea that your beauty routine should make you feel good while also making you look good ... for your own sake.
Own your routine and your beauty, and others will fall in line.
