Facial SKan: Tonya Tonya, expert beauty blogger for Macy’s mblog (also known as @BeautyTipsy on social media) has had many experiences with skincare – some good, some bad and some ugly. After receiving a Facial SKan from SK-II’s new Beauty Imaging Technology at Macy’s Herald Square in NYC this past April (among the first US stores to launch the new technology), Tonya agreed to partner with SK-II and enact a daily product ritual for one month. Thirty days later, she was happy to report a great skincare experience.   The new Beauty Imaging System measures skin’s “true age” from five different perspectives: texture refinement, radiance, wrinkle resilience, spot control and firmness. After a month of using the products religiously, Tonya saw noticeable improvement in softness and spot control. Her Skin Age is 31. Her real age? You’ll have to keep guessing.   To receive your Facial SKan and discover your skin’s potential for radiance, visit any SK-II counter at Macy’s, Saks, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom and experience the Beauty Imaging System.   Name: Tonya Mann   Profession: Beauty Expert & Blogger for Macy’s   Hometown: I was born and raised in Michigan, but now I call New York City’s Greenwich Village my home.   Real Age: You can guess, I’ll never tell. But now my skin age is definitely younger than my real age!   Favorite thing to eat in your city: Impossible to answer! I’m kind of a foodie and NYC has endless options. Here are a few faves you shouldn’t miss: Pulled Pork (actually anything) at Tabonette; Num Pang sandwiches; Flex Mussels; breakfast at Grey Dog; Dos Caminos for Mexican.   Favorite place to travel: Paris and the South of France   Best beauty advice ever received: Lipstick = confidence. And, always wear sunscreen. Ninety percent of aging on the face is from sun damage.   Favorite thing about SK-II: Honestly, the ritual of it. I try so many products that I’d forgotten how nice it is to have a set skincare routine. I love the Cleansing Oil, Mask in Lotion, Essential Power Essence, Cellumination Cream EX, and the masks, of course! less
