THE STORY OF THE FOUNDER
Having worked alongside dermatologists for a number of years, Anne Semonin developed her expertise in treating and healing the skin before becoming a facialist to iconic stars such as Princess Grace Kelly and Catherine Deneuve.
Based on the belief that every skin is unique and that it continues to change daily, Anne Semonin moved away from traditional beauty regimes based on skin type to a made-to-measure and personally prescribed beauty concept which she applied to beauty treatments and home skincare regimes for her clients at L’Atelier de Beauté in rue des Petit Champs, Paris, still in operation today 30 years later.
Madame Semonin then implemented this game-changing approach in the first “beauty farm”, the predecessor of modern-day high-end hotel spas, at Megeve in the French Alps in 1985.
WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO
We have been developing luxurious, highly effective skincare and made-to-measure treatments since 1985 with the goal of visibly enhancing your skin’s radiance.
Regardless of age or skin type your skin can be nourished, nurtured and revitalized to reveal a new freshness, softness and vitality.
We restore that youthful ‘glow’ by harnessing the power of essential oils, minerals and marine active ingredients and by prescribing personalised regimes that detoxify your skin and help prevent or reverse signs of ageing.
MADE TO MEASURE SKINCARE
The Anne Semonin collection is designed with a simple insight in mind: Everyone's skin is unique, and skin changes daily. Our skin is affected by environmental conditions, hormones, stress levels, lifestyle – a wide range of factors that change constantly.
Skincare needs to be tailored to those ever-changing needs. That's why we believe the most effective beauty products and treatments are based on a combination of a personal, made-to-measure prescription and a holistic approach to your specific skin concerns.
