Forget about make up. French women is absolutely gorgeous along with Italian, Spainish and Ukrainian. Women from this country is exceptionally charming....

I'm Colombian. In my country we learn our beauty secrets mostly from our mothers. When puberty came, my mom teached me to always clean my face before sleeping, avoid make up during my teen years to prevent faster aging, use natural ingredients masks every two weeks and to ALWAYS look neat before crossing the door. Oh and we also like to do our manicure and pedicure every week. Also, plastic surgery is very common. All this varies depending on the region, though.

I think I was a French woman in my former life. I actually love that French women are so secretive about their “beauty secrets.” Think about the name. I can actually see why they would keep it to themselves. They put in so much effort. They want you to do the same. Also not everything works for everyone.

Thank you for helping us appreciate the refined yet earthy French approach to beauty and health. I have to ask, though... With so much focus on purity and a generally natural approach, do you not worry about all of the chemicals in sunscreen, and the natural vitamin D, etc. that is blocked?
littleblackpistol (2 months ago)
I don't get why French women treat beauty 'secret' like actual secrets? Is it a female sexual competitive thing? They would prefer other women not to look good as them? Why don't they want to help out other women? If I find something that works for my hair or skin problems I will tell the world. Most women I know in my country are only too happy to advertise if something helps them. It's cosmetics, not some top secret nuclear weapons program to be guarded in case the enemy finds out. Sharing knowledge is good!
littleblackpistol (2 months ago)
I think the haircare tip depends on your hair type. I would love to be able to look good without brushing but it would be impossible. It's actually the first thing i do in the morning as soon as I get up. I have quite long, very thick, yet fine strands of naturally wavy hair and if I don't brush it multiple times a day with a flat paddle brush it will easily form matts and knots. If I didn't brush after getting out of bed I would look like a homeless woman with one side flat, bits sticking up on top and the the rest generally shapeless and frizzed up from the pillow. Brushing it gently and thoroughly distributes the oils from root to tip, gives it shape, restores gloss and takes out tangles that would quickly become dreadful knots that would eventually have to be cut out.

the water drinking thing is a dangerous myth. Not even athletes drink that much water. Latest advice is to only drink water when thirsty. Drinking when not thirsty can result in flushing out electrolytes. There is plenty of water in many foods consumed in any given day. This rumour about 'staying hydrated' was put about by Danone who own all the big brand bottled waters. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2011/jul/13/myth-eight-glasses-water-day

I follow these tips all the time, but I'm not French. I'm Greek. By the way, I've seen French ladies but they are plain looking and basic, to be honest. I'm a realist and "Parisian chic" is a bit vain, snobbish and pretentious cliché term to say the least, based from what I've seen in reality. Originality vs over-the-top shallow and vain stereotypes. 1-0.

As with all human consumption, what women do in terms of beauty is mostly strongly related to the money they have.
A. J. R. Wilde (3 months ago)
I heard French women are really competitive with each other so the last point doesn't surprise me at all
Shirley S (3 months ago)
I agree with the not trying too hard. Here in the States the "contouring" and heavy makeup make a lot of our woman look very fake.

I think I may have been French in a past life because I’ve always instinctively knew these things. It’s amazing to have instincts vindicated. This was a lovely video!

so true for the bare skin...I am French, I live in the USA but merely wear foundation. I wear bb cream. I see the difference but others don't see that I wear make up. Great video!

You have a patronising tone and sound like a know it all. Just because something worked for you(you thought) wouldn’t work for all. My in laws and friends are French and a lot of what to said is just your own way not a French thing apparently. I know you say that this is what French women do but from your body language I get a vibe that also says ... whatever other people are doing is wrong.

A lot of these tips are not unique to France, they are pretty universal. Don't touch your face, drink a lot of water, pretty much everyone knows that.

Merci Justine, so pleased to have found your youtube. I have been living in France for nearly 8 years now and I LOVE the approach women have here. Not only with your own routine, but how lovely it is to see mothers passing these down to their daughters. :) I was quietly pleased on a recent trip back to the UK, and catching up with a friend I hadn't seen for years. She said ' wow you look amazing - you look really....French'. eh beh voila!

I just discovered you Justine few days ago and I can't stop watching! :) I'm Polish, living in UK and I keep on noticing how much more similarities there are between French approach to beauty and Polish one, when the UK one is rather on the opposite side. Especially here where I live, in the South East. I've always been thought by both very stylish - my Mum and my older Sister to wear delicate makeup (eyes or lips rule), take care of skin, moisturise etc. Effortless look has always been the go to one.. After moving to UK however, I'm seen as that weird girl from Poland, who doesn't make effort - and yes, here it is a bad , bad thing! I am trying to brush my hair everyday but haven't given in to using straighteners ever day (!!) or wearing full face, heavy, doll-like makeup. Thank you so much Justine, watching your videos keeps me secure and feeling good being my very self :)

Both. It depends on the person 😊

The Japanese drink lots of green tea. Other than the facial mask in this video, they do pretty much the same mentioned here. They also avoid the sun as it means wrinkles and ageing.

I'm in love with your videos, but I must say... not telling your beauty secrets to anyone sounds a bit rude to me ahaha. I'm mean.. I guess It's a cultural thing. Here in Brazil, if someone asks you ''oh, what kind of perfume are you using?'' and you say ''oh, it's a secret'', people would think you are arrogant. And in fact, I've never seen this happening. We love sharing our beauty 'secrets' with others hahaha. I hope you don't find this commet rude, though ahaha. I love your videos, they are great! xoxo
AastryBrocolirose (4 months ago)
It's funny because even though I'm technically French I had nobody to teach me such tips. Plus, poorer classes just don't have the budget to be scouring cosmetic shops all the time. As years pass, I shed more and more cosmetics, paring down to the bare minimum and the natural. I should definitely drink more water though.

I resonate with your comment "Be a great version of yourself". I agree with enhancing our natural beauty. No need to repeat the 80's ( with a putty knife & trowel full of cosmetics) to fill in the cracks. You have a great smile...& I have eyes that show sincere depth. Bravo!
dobcsek (4 months ago)
I have never understood the world’s obsession with French beauty and fashion. Yes, most cosmetic brands and fashion houses are French but that’s about it. When I lived in France, I was surprised how bad people looked in the city in general: not visible makeup, no high heap shoes for women, unkept hair, etc. If you go to Spain and Italy, women are so well dressed and pretty.
Melinda McCrady (4 months ago)
Good video but I absolutely disagree with French women who want to keep beauty secrets as secret! (I'm not talking about you Justine, obviously) I mean, don't you want to share beauty tips with your sisters? or do you feel that competitive against other women that you don't want them to look as good?

I stopped brushing my hair decades ago. Even the gentlest brush breaks your hair. I used a thick-toothed comb only, with rounded tines. I air dry my hair, too.

Actually, the phrase, "..... woke up like this." means that a woman is so beautiful that she gets out of bed in the morning looking perfect and doesn't have to make any effort to achieve that. It does not mean that you look like you just got out of bed with messy hair. Instead we call very messy hair 'bedhead'. (thanks for your great vids!)

My fav rule is #1 "Do not brush your hair too often. definitely not every day..." It's brilliant! My life will never be the same now)) ha ha. Love love love you, Justine! So happy I found you ) Thanks for generously sharing your beauty tricks with us! God bless you!
Jodi Michael Horner (5 months ago)
When you talk about not wearing foundation and working on keeping your skin healthy, it's great advice, BUT women start to get discolorations as they age, no matter how well they take care of their skin, because our skin thins! So—as many have mentioned, please be sure to include us 30-40-50+-year olds in your advice! Which, BTW, I LOVE!
Shafagh Ghose (6 months ago)

Just found your channel and am so enjoying it! I'm American, but my grandfather was French. Your way of life (food, nutrition, health, beauty, etc.) is as I was raised. I'd taken it totally for granted, but now I'm wondering if it's that French culture passed down. Very interesting! :) Thank you for your perspectives!

Karolay Melendez (6 months ago)
I’m from Colombia and I have to say: I’m happily amazed about how much my beauty style is just like French beauty style. My skin is far away from perfect and yet I do not use foundation or powder. I just hate to see ALMOST EVERY SINGLE GIRL in America changing their faces completely. I know everyone has different tastes but for me... I think it looks very cheap! However, a simple and minimalist look is always elegant. I love how confident French women are ♥️ Thank you for these videos babe. Now I understand better your culture when it comes to beauty not to mention art and history, my favorite parts of French and Italy.

Bonjour Justine. Je m'appelle Tommaso. Vous êtes une femme si intelligente, magnifique et belle. Étant originaire d'Italie, et de la façon dont j'ai été élevé, je sais à quel point il est important de prendre soin de la peau et de ce qu'il faut manger. J'ai voyagé en France et dans toute l'Europe. Je prends vraiment soin de ma peau et de mon corps, car c'est très important. Je regarde tout ce que je mange. J'aime regarder et t'écouter. J'aimerais pouvoir te connaître. Je crois que nous avons à peu près le même âge. Je n'épouserai jamais une femme américaine. Je prévois d'épouser une femme de France. Je peux vous imaginer être ma femme. J'habite à New York. Je suis un agent de change. Je vais bientôt en Italie pour rendre visite à la famille et aux amis. J'espère avoir de vos nouvelles bientôt. Prends soin. Tommaso
