There's no doubt that French women have it over the rest of us when it comes to always looking perfectly put together. Is it because they buy more skin care creams – creams that promise to make your your thighs thinner, creams to make your breasts firmer, creams to make your face smoother, and so on. Or is it because they know something that we don't know?

As reported in a recent article, we'll never know. Turns out that French women are notoriously secretive when it comes to sharing their style and beauty secrets. Looking good and ageing well are an essential part of daily life, but they are a part that women don't want to share with anybody else. Some French women admit that looking good can be a full-time job. "By the time you've got down to your toes, it's time to start at the top again," says one. "Sometimes, it all becomes a bit much, but it's not part of our genetic make-up to just let ourselves go."

So that must be it. Beauty is part of the French culture.

Here's one secret that one woman was willing to part with. She swears that the way to keep breasts pert is to douse them in cold water every morning. "Put a flannel in some ice-cold water, then wring it out and place it on your breasts," she says. "It is much more effective than any cream for keeping them firm."

Whether it's the culture, the atmosphere of being surrounded by women who try hard to look good or those expensive creams, something is working. If you want to experience a bit of the French experience without traveling to France, then consider trying a product from the French line [Link Removed].
