Summer Skincare: Eleanor’s must-haves for Hawaii
Each summer flocks of us San Francisco city dwellers head to the islands of Hawaii. Lush, tropical, humid, rainy, sunny or dry, Hawaii’s multi-faceted and different climate can reward our soul, yet blast our skin with a new set of issues (if we’re not careful).
This month our very own San Francisco spa esthetician Eleanor Bagley, heads to Hawaii with a carry-on full skincare products, tested for the Hawaiian elements. Mahalo Eleanor for sharing! Here are Eleanor’s summer skincare picks:
