Paris Fashion Week is currently in full swing, and between the luxe fashion, the stunning backdrop of the city, and the chic Parisians in attendance at the shows, it's enough to drive you to book a ticket on the next flight to the City of Light. However, even if you're stuck stateside, you can still bring a piece of the city (and the lifestyle) home.
Aside from fashion and, of course, home décor, if there's one thing French women are known for, it's their glowing, natural-looking complexions. Widely lauded French pharmacy products seem to be the secret to their seemingly effortless beauty, and lucky for you, you might not have to travel abroad to try a few out for yourself. Business Insider's Mara Leighton—a former Paris inhabitant—points out that you can find many cult-favorite French skincare products online and have them shipped straight to your home.
