Skin looking a bit lackluster after spending your summer holidays in the sun?

Tonya has been with Flawless Aesthetics from the beginning, offering Chattanooga patients laser treatments, microneedling, dermaplaning, and facials—all aimed at rejuvenating their complexion and boosting inner confidence. But did you know she turned the big 6-0 this year? Pretty hard to believe..huh?!

As you can plainly see, Tonya also knows a thing or two about taking care of her own complexion. So in an effort to help any of you feeling lost on how to properly care for your skin this time of year, today, she is going to dish all of her juicy skincare secrets.

Below, she has detailed her very own summer skincare routine along with the products she uses...

Summer Skin Care Regimen :

  • Cleanse and Exfoliate 2x a day (AM and PM)- In the heat of summer, we tend to sweat more frequently. This leads to an increase in oils and dirt build-up on the skin that can cause breakouts. My favorite products for this are the ZO Exfoliating Cleanser followed by ZO Exfoliating Polish.

  • Tone- In the AM after I have cleansed my face, I like to apply a quality toner. My personal favorite is the ZO Complexion Renewal Pads as they feel clean without drying my skin out.

  • Moisturize- I prefer a moisturizer that feels light on the skin. Currently, I am using Plated Intense Serum. It is an Exosome- based product that utilizes the healing and regenerative properties of platelets.

  • Vitamin C and Retinol- While I consider both of these products vital to anyone's skin-care regimen, it is important to note that they do cause photo-sensitivity (making you more prone to sunburns). Vitamin C helps even skin tone while Retinol speeds up cell turnover and increases collagen production. My personal favorite Retinol is our very own Flawless Bare. Unlike most other products, I find that this one doesn't make your skin peel. Even better, you can use it AM or PM. As for vitamin C, my favorite product is Revision C+ Correcting Complex.

  • Sunscreen- Last but not least, protecting your skin (and your results!) with a medical-grade sunscreen is absolutely crucial! My favorite product for this is our very own Flawless Sun-kissed.

If you would like to purchase any of the products mentioned above or have Tonya custom-tailor a skincare regimen for your unique concerns, call us at 423-206-9500 to schedule your FREE consultation!

Now go back to enjoying your summer fun, and stay flawless, my friends!
