Summer is the perfect time to refresh and revitalize your skincare routine. With the sun-kissed days and warm evenings, our skin deserves some extra love and attention. To help us navigate through the world of facial treatments and find the best ones for the summer season, we turn to the expertise of Georgia-based esthetician, Karma Fouch.
In this exclusive Q&A, Karma shares her knowledge and insights on summer skincare treatments and how they can address our specific concerns during the sunny months.
What facial treatments do you recommend during the summer to address specific skincare concerns?
During the summer months in the south, oil production can go absolutely crazy. We love to provide an antioxidant-rich deep cleanser during our Signature Facial using Glymed Plus Master Aesthetic Elite Vitamin C Cleanser followed by Skin Script Rx Raspberry Refining Cleanser. Such an amazing combo! The treatment is finished up with healthy dose of Black Girl Sunscreen for UV protection.
In your experience, what are the most popular or sought-after facial treatments that clients request during the summer?
Our Summer Strawberry Brightening Facial includes a lactic acid enzyme peel that’s gently exfoliating and has the refreshing aroma of fresh strawberries.
Are there any particular professional facial treatments that are especially beneficial for protecting and rejuvenating the skin from the effects of increased sun exposure and higher temperatures in the summer?
Particularly a dermaplane exfoliation with a cold Seaweed Chamomile gel mask to soothe, calm, tone, and tighten the skin. And of course, sunscreen! For our oily-type clients, we recommend they use SPF in place of moisturizer during the day to avoid product overload in the heat.
It’s important to remember that these recommendations are just a glimpse into the vast world of summer skincare. Each esthetician has their own unique expertise and may suggest tailored treatments based on your specific needs. Summer is all about embracing the sunny vibes and incorporating those sweet, summery products that are protective and effective, like vitamin C, into your routine. Whether it’s tackling oil production, brightening your complexion, or protecting your skin from the sun’s rays, your esthetician will guide you towards a personalized path to summer radiance. So, get ready to glow and make this summer your most beautiful one yet!
