Are you ready to embrace the simple yet luxuriously indulgent lifestyle of Italian women? Italians revolve their decisions around things that make them feel good. From the extra glass of wine at dinner to enjoying a lovely plate of pasta without feeling guilty, Italians have perfected the pleasure seeking lifestyle. And among the many pleasures that Italian women pride themselves with is taking good care of themselves. Thus, an easy way to begin to implement this lifestyle is use rich skincare products from Italian beauty brands.
Italian Beauty Starts with Skincare
The Italian beauty brands that I discuss below have developed their products with natural ingredients found all throughout Italy. Thankfully, these products are available in the US so you don’t have to jet set across the world to get your hands on these products. (But I wouldn’t blame you if you did anyways)
Skin & Co Roma
One of the first Italian beauty brands I discovered is Skin&CO Roma. They released their Truffle Therapy collection, which is made from Black Winter Truffles. With daily use, these products will keep your skin refreshed and glowing with hydration and nourishment from SKIN&CO Roma’s exclusive blend of botanical extracts and antioxidants. Skin&CO’s products aid to fight free radical damage and help prevent UV damage, which is another added bonus. I love to buy minis to try a bunch of different new products for the first time. Their La Collezione is perfect for jut that! Enjoy $10 off on me!
Perlier is another Italian beauty brand that centers their products around Italian sourced natural ingredients. Which include: olive oil, shea butter, black rice, imperial honey, and my favorite Royal Elixir. Their Royal Elixir Collection is my favorite for it’s luxurious decadence. The serums and creams all make my skin so smooth and plump. The Royal Elixir Collection is made with Royal Jelly. The secret behind the longevity of the Queen Bee that nourishes herself exclusively on this precious substance. Royal Jelly is a natural mix of as many as 14 vitamins, 7 minerals and trace elements, 6 different types of sugars. Not to mention proteins and amino acids essential for the whole body! What is not to love about these amazing benefits!
Famaceutica di Santa Maria Novella
Officina Profumo – Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is definitely one of the most historic Italian beauty brands. It’s the world’s oldest pharmacy and Italy’s best kept beauty hidden gem! They’ve been making award-winning natural beauty products (perfumes, soaps, skincare, body care, and much more) for hundreds of years. The next time you visit Florence make sure to visit the under-the radar hidden gem, which in itself is an experience you won’t want to miss. It was while on my honeymoon last summer that I picked went into his historic store and picked up their Acqua di Colonia Vaniglia. The fragrance has a warm, sweet, single oriental note, which was the perfect scent for roaming around the birthplace of the Renaissance. If you don’t have any trips planned to Florence, don’t worry! There are also 110 stores across the US and you can also purchase their products on their website.
