the benefits of natural facial treatments

There was a book I remember reading called ‘French Women Don’t Get Fat’. It was about the differences in our culture & our differing ideals around food - but it's not only food the French view differently! It's their skin & their absolute love of facials !

Most French women get a facial every month - they consider it a regular part of their lives & it's as normal to them as other rituals, you just do it !

Unlike most of us in Australia that get a facial because we have been given a voucher or we are hoping to turn back the clock, our French counterparts recognise the benefits of keeping it simple & regular & they reap the rewards with the most amazing skin!

They also ... 

start early ...

French girls (and boys) start getting facials as young as their early teens. When your skin starts to change during those formative years, our adrenal glands start producing androgens that cause our sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. Good advice from a professional early on & good habits like cleansing, toning & moisturising twice a day will mean good skin in the future.

use natural products ...

The French are legendary for their all-natural approach to beauty & using simple products generally found in local pharmacies. They choose products that contain natural, clean & simple ingredients that have been tested over time. Skin is nourished with what the earth has provided with less focus on the latest fads - just simple natural skincare.    

keep it simple ...

French women’s facials are very simple - Cleanse, Tone, Steam, Exfoliation, Mask, Massage, Moisturiser. They understand that the benefit is in the ritual, the skin analysis & the facial massage. Facial massage is so very important, helping us to relax but equally important, it increases blood flow, circulation & collagen production which will all assist in anti ageing.
