Beauty / IN THE BAG

Wellness and beauty are one and the same for Louise Beaufils

‘Fresh face’ is the mot juste for this up and coming French-born model. Here Louise Beaufils makes the case for going back to the beauty basics, and wearing a dress every day of the week.

My morning beauty routine is …
When I wake up I drink a big glass of water – water is the key to clean skin. Then I put fresh water on my face to tighten my pores. I wash my face with micellar water from Bioderma, or soap from La Roche-Posay. After that I moisturise my skin with a very smooth cream from Vichy. After that, I moisturise my lips with a Burt’s Bees lip balm and put on mascara from Yves Saint Laurent.

My night beauty routine is …
I take off my make up and all the dust from the day with my micellar water. Then I vaporise with Caudalie Beauty Elixir. After that I apply a night cream called Crème Prodigieuse from Nuxe, and sometimes I do a homemade scrub to make my lips smoother.

My favourite products for body are …
A scrub from Kiehl’s – it helps me to keep my tan longer. Also Daily Bronze from Shiseido, so I can wear a dress in every circumstance.

The best beauty secret I’ve learned backstage is 
Stay natural and take care of your skin by protecting it from the sun. Less is more!

When it comes to beauty I always …
Clean my face with micellar water or put on some lip balm.

My beauty icon is …
Brigitte Bardot for her French charm and her natural beauty.

My biggest beauty indulgence is …
I have red cheeks all the time because my skin is very sensitive but I never cover them with foundation or face powder.

The best advice on beauty I’ve received is …
Drink a lot, eat healthy and take care of your skin in EVERY occasion.

The best health advice I’ve received is …
Kind of the same. Drink a lot, have a good breakfast and a light dinner. Of course, eat as many vegetables as you want.

The product I can’t live without is …
A color reviver balm from Dior and Chanel’s Allure Eau de Parfum.
