Parisian style is not only about fashion, but the beauty secrets that allow women to act confident. Although, it’s not about being perfect; quite the contrary, really. To the model Caroline de Maigret, “the Parisian woman retains her imperfections, even celebrates them.” When it comes to French beauty, minimalism is key.
The skin comes before makeup in Parisian style. The better you treat your skin, the less makeup you will need. That is how French beauty brands, such as La Roche-Posay, Vichy and Avène, have obtained worldwide recognition for promising that je ne sais quoi of Parisian girls through their formulas.
Now, these products have arrived at Walgreens stores in Puerto Rico, so you can be Parisian no matter where you are (or at least try). Here are the products you must try.
- 3 in 1 Pureté Thermal Cleanser
In one step, this product covers three essential areas of skincare: cleanser, toner and makeup remover. Its simplicity is unique in this category, which is why Allure Magazine named it the best cleanser of 2014.
- Idéal Capital Soleil SPF 50 sunblock
The light formula in this product can be deceiving to those who prefer a sunblock with a thicker feel. Still, it’s designed to create multiple layers of solar protection for all skin types.
- Effaclar Mat Daily Moisturizer
Many women with oily skin think exempt of using moisturizer, but they are not. It’s important to maintain your skin hydrated, so a mattifying moisturizer is a solution for oily skin types.
- Exfoliating cleanser
One of the most distinctive characteristics of La Roche-Posay is the use of thermal water in their formulas, which creates a smooth texture. This scrub contains antioxidant thermal water with exfoliating particles that don’t scratch your face.
- Clenance Mask
Another tool that helps eliminate shine off your face is a clay mask, which works as a mattifier, exfoliant and cleanser. Makeup artist and vlogger Lisa Eldridge recommend using a mask at least three times a week to purify your skin and reduce excess oil.
- Lip balm for sensitive skin
Matte lipstick is one of the trendiest products right now. To use it effectively, it’s important to keep lips hydrated since these products can be very dry. This lip balm should precede the rest of your makeup to restore your lips before applying lipstick.
Makeup should not hide your skin’s natural beauty. On the contrary, it should stand it out. Parisian girls are the vivid example of this mantra. Why not try it with these products?
