Italian Beauty Secrets

Surprisingly the best beauty tips have little to do with make-up. European girls grow up learning the secrets to maintaining beautiful skin for their entire lives. As an American I feel behind when it comes to skin care. It is overwhelming; there are so many choices and philosophies. It is hard to determine which long term maintenance products to use when you are not seeing results right away. How do you know if it is really working? Not to mention many of these products are expensive, so how do you decide which is worth the investment?

I have enlisted the help of my Italian friend, Giorgina Fioruzzi, who like most European girls, grew up learning the ropes of skin care. What seems like basic beauty knowledge to her, feels like expertise to me. Giorgina wears very little make-up and invests mostly in taking care of her skin. She uses Matis Paris products, the full collection. Giorgina thinks its best to use only one brand instead of mixing. (Side note: this is also one of Olivia’s favorite skin care lines.) Giorgina swears by them and says Matis Paris Cell Expert serum will change your life. Below is her daily beauty regiment.

Morning:

1. Wash face with just water
2. Applies Matis Paris Cell Expert serum
a. Puts three drops in her and and then rubbs it in all over her face
3. Moisterizes with Matis Paris Réponse Jeunesse Avantage for normal and combined skin
4. (Note: If you have sensitive skin subsistiute this for Matis Réponse Délicate)

Evening:

1. Removes make-up with Rilastil Daily Care Make-Up Removing Wipes
(Note: This is an italian product sold in most drug stores in the US)
2. Applies Matis Paris Face Lotion Toner and then washes it off with water
3. Applies Matis Paris Cell Expert serum
a. Puts three drops in her and and then rubbs it in all over her face
4. Moisterizes with Matis Réponse Jeunesse Avantage for normal and combined skin

(Note: If you have sensitive skin subsistiute this for Matis Réponse Délicate)
Once a month Giorgina uses Matis Réonse Jeunesse Mask. Like most European women, Girogina thinks face masks are a crictal part of your beauty routine.
