If You’ve Got It, Haunt It

With Halloween just around the corner, you may be thinking about ways to keep your skin from looking ghastly when the night comes to a close. Save the tricks this year, and start treating your skin with these tips and recommendations from Toska Spa.

At the end of the night, we all know you’re going to reach for that bowl of leftover candy. Don’t worry- this is a judgement free zone. However, keep in mind that consuming excess sugar can break down the collagen in your skin in a process known as glycation. As collagen makes up about 70% of protein in our skin, a damage to this network of proteins can spell problems for your skin, such as a decrease in elasticity, a less toned appearance, and fragility. Thankfully, Serum A-Glyca protects against glycation by protecting the proteins within the skin’s structure. Add this handy little potion to your regimen before sneaking some chocolate!
Makeup is a companion to many of us, and there certainly is no shortage of it this season. If this year’s costume calls for face paint, powders, or anything of the sort, then be sure to add Eau Micellaire Biosensible and Demaquillante pour les Yeux to your regimen. Eau Micellaire Biosensible is a gentle, moisturising formula that helps remove dirt, makeup, and pollution from your skin. What’s better is that it also soothes irritated skin and has a gentle toning effect. Demaquillante pour les Yeux is a delicate makeup remover specifically for the eyes. It effectively dissolves makeup, leaving it easy to wipe away within seconds (yes, even the waterproof kind!). These two cleansers working together will leave your skin feeling refreshed, even after a grisly night.
With the holiday season rolling in, don’t forget that the dry, cold air it brings can have adverse effects on your skin. Freezing temperatures and low humidity can cause your skin to become dehydrated, damage the lipidic barrier, and can leave you with a dull complexion. Creme VG Derm counteracts the damages caused by the fall and winter chill by hydrating your skin, restoring the lipidic barrier, and revitalizing dull, dry skin.
As the hot, humid days of summer get further and further away, remember that this time of year can also be tough on your skin. Save your complexion from looking ghoulish this season with BR, and stay tuned for more Toska Tips next time!

Summer Skin

Summer is here, and everyone is on the hunt of how to achieve glowing skin. Skin issues arise this time of year and can be tricky to fix and prevent. Whether it’s pesky skin flare ups from sweating in the summer heat or pigmentation and dehydration from the sun’s rays, using the right products can push those problems aside and give you skin that truly glows.

The first essential step in your summertime skincare regimen is proper cleansing. In the morning, start off with Lait EV. This cleansing milk is perfect to keep impurities away and the skin hydrated. I always recommend for my clients to double cleanse in the evening to ensure that both impurities and makeup are removed from the skin. Start off your double cleanse with Micellaire Biosensible. It is a gentle cleanser that contains hydrating and toning properties to the skin and is a great way to remove makeup. Following, go in with the Lait EV to assure a deep cleanse without stripping the skin of its natural moisture levels.

Sun spots are a major concern for my clients and summer tends to make them worse. One of the Lotion P50s should be including in everyone’s regimen. For the summer, the P50 PIGM 400 is an excellent choice to get that exfoliation while brightening and treating pigmentation. 

As for serums, there are two that I love to combine during the summer to treat and hydrate the skin. The first serum is Complexe Iribiol. This serum is perfect for keeping the complexion clear and poreless. It also helps regulate sebum and balances the skin. To have the perfect summer skin, not only do you keep to have clear, but you also have to keep it properly hydrated to get that “glow.” To hydrate and soothe the skin, the second serum you need is Amniotique E. This product will help dehydrated skin caused by harmful sun rays and common activities, such as the chlorine from swimming pools. 

As I mentioned before, pigmentation is a common issue that occurs during the summertime. Treating and preventing is the best way to fading these sun spots and make sure they stay away. Including both the Serum PIGM 400 and Creme PIGM 400 will lighten existing spots and prevent new ones from forming. 

 

Visolastine+ and Vernix are both amazing mask choices for healthy summer skin. Visolastine+ moisturizes and improves skin elasticity with fatty acids. Creme Masque

Vernix strengthens the protective barrier and gives the skin a “second birth.” For best results, I recommend alternating between the two masks every night after using P50. 

The last thing I cannot stress enough is keeping up with your professional appointments. Consistency is key, and the results will not disappoint. 

So be sure to soak up these products and not the sun this summer, and get ready to watch your skin transform into the skin you’ve always dreamed of. Stay tuned for more Toska Tips next week.
