Why French women always have flawless skin and how their skincare differs from British women
France is known not only for its fashion houses and perfumes, but also for cosmetics that make French women's skin shimmer. At the same time, the UK suffers from constant weather changes and problems with water hardness, which greatly affects the skin condition.
In recent years, French cosmetics have become increasingly popular. Many of their products are also used by Ukrainian women: from micellar water to serums with vitamin C. However, the popularity of the French skincare method lies in its simplicity, according to skincare expert Seth Catalano at Who What Wear UK.
"French skincare, like French fashion, exudes ease and confidence. It promises results without strict requirements or confusing schemes. French skincare is affordable, result-oriented and enjoyable to use," he explained the main difference in skincare.
The main reason why British and French skincare regimens differ is the desire of the British to try something new and popular. For the most part, Ukrainians' skin care tactics are quite similar to those of the British: a constant search for the "right" cream and buying new products.
The expert noted that TikTok often influences the choice of skincare products. Sometimes it seems that you need hundreds of products in your routine to have perfect glowing skin. In fact, this is not true. Just a few high-quality products will be enough to get a good result. This is the concept of French skincare.
Catalano advises building your own skincare regimen depending on the order in which you apply the products. "First, we balance the skin by gently cleansing and toning to get the best results from the care," the expert said.
In particular, the expert reminded that high-quality sunscreen is one of the most important components of skin care. "First of all, the key to the best results is prevention. Invest in formulas with clinical trials and never forget about sun protection!" he said.
