5 Minute Skincare Routine - French Beauty Co.

Did you get five minutes to apply some skincare essentials to your skin? Fortunately, a quick and effective 5-minute skincare routine can help you maintain healthy skin without wasting too much time. This routine is perfect for busy people who want healthy and glowing skin. 

So, without further ado, since we know you’re always on the move, we’ll quickly review the 5-minute French skincare routine by French Beauty Co. Here’s a simple routine that covers the essential steps in five minutes:



First, wash your face with a gentle cleanser like Uriage Xemose Soothing Gentle Oil and Roge Cavailles Extra-Gentle Intimate Cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Rinse with lukewarm water after massaging the cleanser into your skin in circular motions. Then, pat your face dry with a towel. 

Remember to choose a cleanser appropriate for your skin type. You can also consider some cleansers that you can easily use with cotton wipes without rinsing off, like milk cleansers from Avene and Embryolisse.



Next, apply a toner to your skin to remove lingering dirt and oil residues. Toners such as Caudalie Vinopure and Bioderma Sensibio balance your skin’s pH and prepare it for the next steps of your skincare routine. All you need is a cotton pad to apply the toner to your neck and face, avoiding the eye area. Just wait for it to be fully absorbed by the skin, and then you can proceed to the next step.



Apply a moisturiser to your neck and face to hydrate and nourish your skin. We recommend using a 6-in-1 moisturiser perfect for French skin, like Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentre Multi-Purpose Moisturiser. This miracle moisturiser not only moisturises but also cleanses, masks, soothes, calms and primes your skin. 

You might also consider correcting the first signs of ageing with moisturisers with antioxidant powers, such as Nuxe’s Crème Prodigieuse Boost Multi Correction Silky Cream.



Now, we’re almost done with our 5-minute skincare routine! But before you head out, you must not forget to apply sunscreen. We advise applying sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, like Bioderma Sensibio AR BB Cream, which not only conceals redness but also shields your skin from damaging UV rays. 
Or you could go with a higher SPF, like Avene. What’s excellent about Avene is its many variations, depending on your preference. It has fluid, spray, and lotion that’s perfect not only for your face but also for your body. It’s also worth noting that Avene offers sunscreen spray for children.


Eye Care

Lastly, if you have a few extra seconds, apply a light eye cream to the delicate skin around your eyes to hydrate and protect that area. You might not know it, but an eye cream is essential to French skincare to eliminate those fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. 

Eye care is commonly disregarded, but an excellent lifting eye cream like Nuxe Merveillance and Caudalie Resveratrol-Lift would instantly lift, smooth, and redefine the eye contour area. If you have eczema-prone eyes, SVR Palpebral by Topialyse will help soothe and relieve flaky and scaly skin.
