There was a book I remember a few years back called something like ‘French Women Don’t Get Fat’. It was about the differences in our culture and our differing ideals
French women look amazing – and it’s not only food they view differently. French women have beautiful skin and they love organic facials.
Most French women get an organic facial every month. They consider it a regular part of their lives and don’t let a busy lifestyle get in the way of their organic facial appointment.
Unlike most of us in USA that get facial because we have been given a gift voucher or we are hoping to turn back the clock with some radical new treatment.
French women recognize the benefits of keeping it simple and regular and they reap the rewards of this approach.
Here are a few things French women do:
French women choose products that are all natural and contain simple ingredients.
They nourish their skin with what the earth has provided and aren’t interested in fancy chemicals created in a lab that claim to do the impossible. French women have learnt to cleanse, tone and moisturize twice a day from an early age.
French women start getting facials as young as their early teens. They recognize that this is when our skin changes. Puberty hits and our adrenal glands start producing androgens that cause our sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. We start to wear make-up which can clog our pores leading to pimples. Good advice from a professional early on and good habits learnt early mean good skin in the future.
French women spend so much time nourishing their skin, they want to show it off – not hide it under layers of makeup. They consider makeup to enhance their skins beauty, not camouflage it.
French women’s facials are very simple. Cleanse, Tone, Steam, Exfoliation, Mask, Massage, Moisturizer. They understand that the benefit is in the ritual, the skin analysis
and the facial massage. Facial massage helps us to relax. It increases blood flow, circulation and collagen production which all assists in antiaging.
French women are not interested in highly invasive procedures to turn back the clock.
Most of them look amazing at any age because they realize the benefit of regularly caring for their skin not just waiting till it all falls apart and hoping some magical injection, chemical peel or surgical procedure will fix it.
French women recognize the benefits of face masques and make their own or buy very simple masks they use once a week.
French women understand how harmful the sun’s rays are for our skin. The sun causes irreparable damage and ages our skin before its time. French women wear sun block and cover up – smart ladies!
Maybe we didn’t grow up realizing how precious our skin is and how easy it is to form habits that will make our skin glow later in life but there is nothing stopping us from starting now!
Earth and Skin offer beautiful, natural facials that focus on the benefits of facial massage and a tailored treatment depending on your skins needs. We use natural
