Like much of the world, we have a fascination with the French and their approach to fashion, parenting and really, life in general. But one other aspect of la vie française we’re thrilled to emulate? Beauty.
French women have seemingly mastered effortless beauty, with a simple swipe of red lipstick and a flick of mascara, and who wouldn’t love a peek inside their every day routine? Our friends at NUXE are filling us in, and with a few simple additions to your skincare regime, you can tap into the same je ne sais quoi that French women so easily exude.
For a few minutes every day, recite the letters A, E, I, O, U with your mouth in an exaggerated fashion. This way, you’ll work important muscles in your face that stimulate and firm skin to look naturally lifted.
Using a tool like this Nuxuriance® Ultra Anti-Aging Roll-On Mask will enhance microcirculation, which prevents visible signs of premature aging by increasing nourishment of skin cells. Tools with cooling tips also have a stimulating and draining effect, decreasing wrinkle lines and puffiness.
Double the efficacy of your products by performing a simple massage during application. Perform upward, rapid smoothing movements following the contour of your face toward the temples. Massage the eye area by lightly tracing circles around both eyelids a few times.
By working these three simple steps into your daily skincare routine, voila! You’ll be approaching beauty like a French woman.
