Infographic: The French Pharmacie

As the summer sun starts to show that little bit more, out thoughts turn to our skin. There's something about the heightening temperatures that make us feel like wearing a little less coverage.

When it comes to making your skin a clear canvas, the French are miles ahead. How do they achieve such blemish-free loveliness? By trusting in the national treasure that is the French Pharmacie. There's a reason women like Marion Cotillard and Juliette Binoche look so incredibly well.

The ?pharmacie? refers to the skincare products available across the country that rely on simple formulas and treat sensitive skin with the delicacy it needs. Products from companies such as La Roche Posay, Vichy, Caudalie and Bioderma (launching in Ireland this month) are cult favourites and the last decade has seen us Celts cop on and fill our bathroom shelves up with creams and micellar waters from across the channel.

If you're looking to become a French Pharmacy convert look no further, have prepared this charming infographic to give you an overview of what's out there and what will work for you.

Consider it a much less violent French Revolution.
