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!

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!

What The Neck?

Many of my clients have been concerned with fine lines and sagging skin on their neck and décolleté. Taking proper care of your skin doesn’t just mean your face. Your skincare products are intended to be used on the face, neck and décolleté. However, I often see my clients neglecting some of these areas.

Several factors can cause this issue. Some of you may have heard of “tech neck.”  Tech neck is caused by looking down at a phone or computer screen, which results in fine lines and wrinkles on the neck. Another problem area is the center of chest. When you sleep on your side, the skin is pressed into a position that creates wrinkles. Sun exposure is always a factor in wrinkles. The sun breaks down the collagen in your skin causing it to age at a faster speed. No matter what is causing your issue, we know just how to fix it. 

Treating your neck and décolleté is just as important as treating your face; hence, we treat those areas during a treatment as well. Always extend your products down onto the neck and décolleté. Use your cleansing milk and P50 just as you would on your face. Following this, here are some products to help tone these areas. 

Creme Masque Biofixine is one of my favorites to tone the skin. Packed with antioxidants, it reduces wrinkles and prevents visible signs of aging. Use this masque at least 3-4 times a week for best results. 

VG Tensil tightens the supportive tissues and stimulates regeneration. The peptides and amino acids in this product tones and prevents future loss of tone in the skin. Use this serum first by itself, followed by your other serums for best results. 

Serum 3R is like Botox in a bottle. It stands for renewing, regenerating and repairing. This product exfoliates and repairs the DNA to strengthen the firmness of the skin. On top of all the anti-aging properties, Serum 3R hydrates, fights free radicals and contains anti- inflammatory agents. 

Serum Matriciel is a must for anyone lacking tone on the body. This product improves the elasticity and firmness in the skin. I love this product for fine lines in the center of the chest. Matriciel works in three layers of the skin, filling out any type of fine lines or imperfections on the body. 

Creme Metamorphique restructures the skin’s cells, giving sagging skin definition and a lifted look. Rich in active ingredients, this product redefines the contour of the skin. After applying your serums, apply this creme in an upward motion to promote lifting of the skin. 

With the combination of these products, your neck and décolleté will be ageless just like your face. So let your driver’s license give away your age and not your skin. Tune in next week for more Toska Tips.
