THE TIMES The products the Parisian beauty editors rate.
The products the Parisian beauty editors rate.
Inspired by my mother and grandmother, I have targeted three age groups: jeunesse (youth) for 20 to 35-year-olds, plénitude (abundance) for ages 35 to 55, and maturité (maturity) for women aged 55 and over.

Hydrating your face — products we love
Depending on your skin type/condition (to treat acne, for dry skin) you may want a light cream from Avène, Bioderma, Embryolisse, pictured, La Roche-Posay, Nuxe or Dior Hydra Life Sorbet Crème.
If you like all-in-one products try BB (blemish balm) or CC (colour correction) creams. They give you moisturising benefits in addition to a tint/more opaque finish, and often an SPF too. Try La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur or Erborian CC Crème, pictured.
I also like Osmia Organics Purely Simple Face Cream, which has an aloe base that is good for sensitive skin, and Vintner’s Daughter, pictured, an excellent dry oil, and moisturisers such as Moody Skin, which is a balancing cream.
Avène Rich Compensating Cream, Clinique Moisture Surge, pictured, Caudalie Face Lifting Soft Cream, Clarins Multi-Active or Extra-Firming Day Cream and Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Wake Up Balm.
A lighter version for the summer such as Filorga Hydra-Filler Pro-Youth Boosting Moisturizer is a good choice. For the summer, Alexandra Soveral Formula 2 moisturiser has an SPF 15. A great discovery for the sunny summer months is to use SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50, pictured.
I use either La Roche-Posay Substiane Visible Density and Volume Replenishing Moisturizer or Dior Prestige La Crème, pictured.
