How often do you get a professional facial treatment and do you see it as pampering? When it comes to our bodies, we consider our health a necessity. Eating healthy food, going to the doctor when we are sick, and making sure everything is in working order is rightfully considered a requirement for good health.
However, when it comes to our skin, doing anything for it is merely considered a luxury. Despite being our body’s largest organ, caring for it is seen as pampering rather than a necessity, unlike what we do for the rest of ourselves.
Beyond the cosmetic applications of skincare, there are medical reasons for your regular visits to the spa.
First off, keeping your skin properly cleaned and balanced can prevent painful and unsightly problems in the future. The pollution we expose ourselves to daily builds up over time and eventually leads to the formation of pimples, cysts, and thinned skin. Taking the time to cleanse your skin every day will prevent these problems down the line.
Another glaring problem prevented by proper skincare is sun damage. Sun spots are unsightly, sure, but the bigger issue with it is skin cancer. On sunny days, protecting yourself from harmful UV rays is a must, and a gentle sunscreen comes highly recommended.
While your spa day doesn’t have to be as serious as a doctor’s appointment, it shouldn’t be seen as frivolous pampering. Instead, see it as a form of care that your body needs. Healthy skin is a part of a healthy you!
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!
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.
