2. French women trust dermatologists the way American women trust their hairstylists. The go for annual visits and discuss all their lotions and practices with the doctor.

4. They don’t just address their face, they address their whole body by adding a coarse salt to their face cream and applying it all over their body. Then they add a body cream – daily.
