PAYOT is a cosmetic brand with an international reputation, born in 1920 of the extraordinary vision of one woman: Nadia Payot. Ahead of her time, she became one of the first female doctors. Nadia Payot early on demonstrated her commitment to using her medical, scientific and herbal expertise in the skincare products she developed. When she met prima ballerina Anna Pavlova, Nadia PAYOT understood the importance of techniques to preserve the skin’s beauty and youth. She developed and then introduced her clients to facial exercises, which were the source of the 42-Movement Massage, still performed today.
