How To Build A Personalized FP Skin Care Routine

Our goal is to teach you how to properly care for your skin.  with our "Less is More" philosophy. frenchpharmacy.com invites you to let go of past beauty beliefs to embrace the « Less is More » attitude. 

Great looking skin is a combination of genetics, habits, external factors, and the products we use. In other words, while some of us might be born with flawless skin, all of us can achieve glowing and healthy skin by adjusting our lifestyle (yes, that means eating your greens) and using the right cosmetics in a well-established skin care routine. 

Our curated beauty brands are designed to work hand in hand with the skin biology to offer maximum efficacy, tolerance, optimal, and regenerative solutions to today’s multiple skin needs.

To get you on your way to that perfect (for you) skin care regimen, we’ve summed up the main steps to follow. Ready? Check out Beauty Buddy for a list of must-have products based on your skin type.

Below are four essential beauty routine steps… Check out Beauty Buddy for a step further routine.


DOUBLE CLEANSE. There’s no way around this one, washing your face or cleansing (see our article Are You Cleansing the Right Way?) is the most basic and essential step of any skin care regiment.

A must-have to start: Micellar Water. Take our Beauty Buddy quiz to know which Micellar water is the right one for your skin type.

Followed by a cleansing gel or milk: Nuxe Rêve de Miel Cleansing and Make-Up Removing GelBio-beaute Anti-Pollution Gentle Cleansing FoamTopicrem Gentle Cleansing Gel, or Topicrem Gentle Cleansing Milk.


EXFOLIATE. A gentle exfoliation to complete the cleansing to remove dead skin and bring a bright glow.

Check out Filorga Scrub and MaskTopicrem Gentle Scrub Face & Body or Avène Cleanance Mask.


MOISTURIZE. We all need a moisturizer. Choose its consistency — gel, lotion, cream, or balm — based on your skin type. Make sure to pick a day cream that’ll protect you from environmental aggressors and a night cream that’ll soothe and repair the damages while you sleep.

Normal to combination skin types, we give you Embryolisse Moisturizing Cream with OrangeTopicrem Light Ultra-Moisturizing CreamTopicrem Rich Ultra-Moisturizing CreamEmbryolisse Lait Creme Concentre or Filorga Hydra-Hyal.


PROTECT WITH SUNSCREEN. A must, year round, no matter where you live. Apply at least 15 minutes before sun exposure and repeat every two hours — an in house tip: refresh your face with some French thermal water before reapplying.
