Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to prep your skin for a few upcoming changes: Weather patterns where you live and new environments encountered while traveling tend to introduce different exogenous factors than your skin may be used to. What exactly does that mean? Exogenous factors are “outside factors” that affect the health of the skin, including: lifestyle, climate, sun exposure, etc. Although these factors differ based on location and exposure, we have curated a quick guide for maintaining the health and glow of your skin- all summer long. Follow along for Toska’s Tips to combat the ever-changing summer season.
The most important part of any skincare journey is a really good skincare routine that both you and your skin will agree with. Some routines take a little bit of work to uncover the perfect combination for your skin’s needs, but not to worry, we are always here to help! At Toska Spa & Facial Bar, we aim to curate a regimen and treatment plan seamlessly fitted to your skin’s needs, your goals and most importantly, your budget. Visit Toska Spa & Facial Bar, let us customize your skincare journey and invest in YOU.
