Took Your Vitamins? Now Put Them On Your Skin

In 1927, Dr. Nadia Payot created an institute in central Paris catering to women's health and beauty needs. The original spa still exists, but, over time, Payot has broadened its reach (by opening outposts in Paris and around the world), its scope (through the development of exclusive products) and its approach: it now serves both men and women. Payot Homme's new Optimale line boasts vitamins, minerals and pulverized suspensions of semi-precious stones to "invigorate, rejuvenate and refresh" a man's skin. Our prescription? Use daily. Look and feel better.
