I Lived Like a French Girl for 7 Days, and It Changed My Skin

For my first trip back to Paris in six long years, I planned every detail ahead of time. Believe me, "type A" doesn't even begin to characterize the lists I made and pre-planned outfits I brought.

Just kidding.

I flew to Paris a month ago with absolutely zero plans. I didn't have a place to stay until the day before. I packed in a panicked frenzy (don't even ask how many bags I checked) and arrived at Charles de Gaulle without a single skincare product to my name. I'll wing it, I thought to myself, fantasizing about the French pharmacies on every corner and the natural glow of muses like Jeanne Damas, Louise Follain, and Lou Doillon.
