Fall into Flawless Skin

Leaves are changing, the temperature is chilling and your skin is in need of a major reboot. As the season changes so should your skincare regimen. With summertime officially over, this time of the year is a wonderful time to treat these sun spots. Correcting pigmentation and brightening the skin should be your number one focus this fall. 

Switch up your P50 to the Lotion P50 PIGM 400 this fall. While still having the exfoliating factor, removing impurities and balancing the skin’s pH; this version regulates melanin synthesis. It illuminates the skin while treating hyper-pigmentation. This best-selling product is even safe for my most sensitive clients. 

Brighten your complexion with Masque VIP O2. This masque contains oxygenating properties that hydrates the skin and allows the skin to breathe. The white clay lightens pigmentation spots and reduces dark circles. Apply a thin layer all over the face, neck and décolleté three times a week to get the best results. 

All of Biologique Recherche’s serums are highly concentrated and essential for all regimens. Serum PIGM 400 is a must to go along with the other PIGM 400 products. This powerful serum acts on four stages of pigmentation, giving your discoloration a kick goodbye. 

Serum Oligo-Protéines Marines will bring your skin back to life. This energizing serum revives, stimulates and brightens the skin. It awakens the skin and is perfect for anyone dealing with dullness. I love this serum because it is so versatile. You can even apply this serum under the eyes to treat dark circles! 

Creme PIGM 400 is composed of five active ingredients to brighten and create an immediate whitening action when applied. Not only does this product treat existing spots but it also prevents new spots from forming. This is a treatment creme so make sure to mix it in with your favorite creme and watch those pesky spots disappear. 

The combination of these products will give you your best complexion yet. So watch your skin fall into perfection this season and we’ll see you next time for more Toska Tips. Happy Fall everyone!

Don’t Sweat It

Here Comes the Bride

You want your wedding day to be perfect and that includes having perfect skin. So many of our clients come to us desperate for improvement in their skin before they say “I do.” Whether you’re breaking out, dull, pigmented, lacking tone or all of the above, we have the best treatments and at-home regimen for your skin.

First, let’s talk time frame. Many clients come in just weeks before their wedding, and realistically, only so much can be done in that amount of time. It took time for your skin to get the way it is, so it’s going to take time to fix it. Starting at least six months prior to the big day is going to give you the best results.  

Everyone’s skin needs are different, so when it comes to what type of treatment and how often you should be coming, it is going to vary from person to person. Be sure to give your skin time and come well in advance to determine the best treatment plan for YOU. 

Remember that you have to use the products at home to obtain the results you want. Think of it like losing weight; you can’t go to the gym once and get in shape. You have to be consistent and work at it everyday. It’s the same concept with your skin. 

To build the best home regimen, coming in for an appointment will allow our esthetician to choose the best products for your skin type. During your first session, our esthetician will use the Skin Instant Lab, which allows us to see what’s happening underneath the skin. With the results from the Skin Instant Lab and a personalized consultation, our esthetician will be able to prescribe the right treatment and products for you. 

The Cocktail d’Actifs Regenerants is a product that every single bride should be purchasing the month of their wedding. This product contains 10 serum bottles, and you will use half a bottle a day over the course of 20 days. Packed with vitamins and biotechnology, your skin will transform in these 20 days. The Cocktail improves texture, hydration, skin protective functions and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. No matter what skin type you have, this target serum is a must before your special day. 

Finishing serums are also essential for my brides. These serums lock in all the products you’ve applied to your skin and leaves a beautiful, luminous glow. If you are unsure which serum is best for you, a simple guide is:

Fluide VIP O2: If you are dull, acne prone or textured.

Serum Yall O2: If you are lacking tone or dehydrated.

Serum Grand Millesime: If you are devitalized, dull or aging.

Le Grande Serum: If you are lacking radiance, tone or aging (richest formula).

The last treatment before your big day should be our Overture Facial. This facial is specifically tailored for special occasions. Weddings are stressful and your skin reacts when you’re stressed. The Overture Facial is cold-based to help calm and soothe the skin. This treatment also includes a custom blend of serums for your skin’s needs. Your skin will be glowing after this treatment.

You want to look back at your wedding pictures and remember how beautiful you felt, so let us perfect your skin so Photoshop doesn’t have to. Remember to keep up with your treatments after your wedding as well. You don’t want all your hard work to go down the drain! Congratulations to all our beautiful brides-to-be, and we’ll see you next Tuesday for more Toska Tips.
