Her friendship with the ballerina Anna Pavlova reinforced her convictions where she was struck by the difference between the dancer’s youthful body and the fatigue that could be seen on her face. By combining her medical skills with beauty, but also specific movements with beauty care, she developed what she called the “physical culture” of the face. This concept led to the development of the 42-Movement Facial Protocol, representing a vital part of the brand’s heritage. PAYOT Sun Sensi Crème Visage Protective Anti-Aging Face Cream SPF30 RRP €30
