“We have to treat our skin like our favorite silk blouse and avoid all sorts of very harsh treatments. We only have one face and we should treat it in the most delicate way we can.”
“In the morning, I first prep my skin with a toner–usually Filorga Anti-Aging Micellar Solution or LOLI Beauty Sweet Orange Water. Then I spritz some Avène Thermal Spring Water on my face before applying moisturizer. Valmont V-Line Lifting Concentrate and Joëlle Ciocco ABRICIOL Apricot Ointment are my favorites. If I have a lot of meetings and feel very pale, I use a Comodynes Self-Tanning Towelette before putting on makeup.”
“I look forward to my evening routine–it’s the perfect time for me to relax and unwind.”
“I have a tried-and-true beauty ritual that makes my skin glow: double-cleansing. My favorite products are Joëlle Ciocco L’Absolue Pureté, Soveral Awaken Cleanser and Caudalie Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil. Then I apply La Roche-Posay Micellar Water Ultra with hydrophilic cotton pads, as they are soft and really absorbent. I finish with a spray of Avène. Twice a week, I massage my face with an oil, such as Soveral Midnight Oil or LOLI Beauty Plum Elixir, and I wake up even glowier!”
