2 French Beauty Secrets We All Should Know

Have you ever noticed how effortlessly beautiful French girls are? Gorgeous hair, perfect skin, beautiful figures…and the best look of all: killer confidence. French girls are beautiful in a way that is both effortless and mysterious. How do they always manage to look so healthy and happy – and make it look like it was no work at all?

French girls take skincare seriously. They prefer great skincare above make-up! They love kitchen remedies and less is definitely more! Nuxe Body Oil is extremely popular in France and 1 of my personal favorites as it has a special place in my bathroom. It’s an ultra luxurious dry body oil made of Macadamia, Hazelnut, Borage, Almond, Camellia and St. John’s Wort and really nourishes, repairs and softens your skin and hair. Especially, during the cold and rainy months it’s great to use some oil (their Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm is amazing as well). And honestly, how luxurious does this golden bottle look in your bathroom! You can use it in your hair, on your face and your body and it makes a perfect Christmas gift. Yes, this product has a special place in my bathroom. I love it!

They love cold showers. This one is actually new to me. But I decided to try it out this week and I actually love it! Especially, in the morning when you’re all sleepy  it somehow gives you more energy and really wakes you up! ‘”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.’ Source

    French women have so much more hidden in those cabinets! Check out anything from Caudalie, Nuxe or those dermatological brands they have (Avène, Vichy, Ducray, La Roche Posay, Bioderma, Uriage..) So much amazing skincare at their fingertips, no wonder they look so good.
