If you’ve visited any of skoah locations in Calgary, Boston, or Vancouver you’re probably fairly familiar with one of our favorite mantras: “rockin’ a killer skoah glow-ah!” We strongly believe that anyone can feel great from the skin in with the right skin care workouts, and the right equipment! But what does feeling good from the skin in really mean – especially now that summer is on our horizon?
Well, we can’t get enough of exfoliation, and we definitely can’t get enough of hydration! But too often we all forget to consider one of the most important contributions to glowing from the skin: the tan.
Before you take off running to put on your best tan-line-free-bikini hear me out! I’m not telling you pull out the baby oil, and lay yourself out on the roof where the sun can get at you. Oh no! Not even close! I’m talking about bronzers, and tinted body moisturizers. Co-owner of skoah Andrea Scott shares our philosophy on sun-less tanning: “I am a huge fan of faking a sun tan. We see first hand the results of too much time spent in the sun. Despite what we all may want to believe, our skin is damaged whether it’s sun burned or sun tanned.”
Spring is Mother Nature's time to get to work. So as we wipe our hibernation-crusted eyes, and get to work skrubbin' away all our winter layers, I'd say now is the perfect time to have a chat about toning our skin. Wasn’t it always Mom that says, “make sure to wash your face!” …?
Our Skin Athletes inspire our krew because they are living their dreams. Each athlete is a professional in their sport and have made their talent and passion their careers. We couldn't be more thrilled to have 3 amazing athletes this year: Mason Raymond of the Vancouver Canucks, Olympic Gold Medalist Ashleigh McIvor and Professional Snowboarder Spencer O'Brien.
On Thursday, February 16th, we hosted an event to introduce the Skin Athletes to our krew and kustomers - an evening filled with healthy cocktails and fun conversation. 25% of the sale for the night were donated to skoah's charity the Hopeful Hand - to benefit the parents and families of ill and terminally ill children through the BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
