French Women Have Beautiful Skin. What’s Their Secret?

Skin Care Tip of the Day: French women value having beautiful skin and put a big emphasis on quality skin care products. It is rather obvious due to how many facial salons there are, not only in the big city of Paris, but also the small villages around the country. They have as many skin care salons as we in the United States have nail salons. Monthly facials are a regular part of a woman’s life in France. In the U.S., we are so busy with our lives that we don’t take the time to relax and care for ourselves with a nice pampering facial. Similarly with food, Americans are so busy and often view eating as something we have to do to sustain our energy (think “fast” food), but the French truly love food and take their time to enjoy it with their lunches and dinners often lasting 2-4 hours. The French know how to balance their lives and care for their skin and getting their regular monthly facials is something they are never too busy to do.
