The Parisian Effortless Look: Mirror, Mirror…



Make-up makes miracles, that might be true. But Parisians make miracles with or without it.

They never exaggerate the quantity, instead they use the right amount to get the natural look so you will never notice at first glance…

Under Your Skin

What first draws your attention is that they have amazing skin and that’s where the secret lies…
Taking care of your skin is a very serious ritual in Paris. 

On one hand, it’s a family tradition because since they’re teenagers, their mother or grandmother tought them how to clean their faces before going to bed.

Clean your face twice, the first one with « eau micellaire », the second one with water until you cotton pad is white and then spray it with « eau thermale ». Very simple principle, but it works.
Let your skin breathe at night, at least once a week, the others days hydrate at night and day and put SPF during the day. And then some natural « recettes de grand-mère ».

For a face scrub:
1 tea spoon of organic honey
1 tea spoon of bicarbonate of soda
Mix with water and scrub your face
Wash with water until your face is smooth

For the mask afterwards:
2 table spoons of organic honey
1 egg (yolk only)
1 tea spoon of castor oil
2 drops of lemon
Put this mix on your face for 15 min.

That’s why, if you have the right advice you will feel and look so much better!
