As the seasons change, the quality of my skin fluctuates. Add the constant travel I do to this climate change equation, and you’ve got a hot mess. Simple as that. I needed something to make my skin look better than ever, especially since I’m headed to Morocco soon – my skin needs to be ready and flawless for the campaigns I’ll be shooting. Back in June, I started incorporating the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence into my daily skin care regimen. My mother started using this brand over 10 years ago, and if any of you have ever had the chance to meet her, you would know she has the most radiant skin!
Usually by this point in summer, my skin is incredibly dry and uneven. However, this summer, my skin feels firm and looks brighter than it has ever been! I do not want to speak too soon, but I am pretty sure I have summer proofed my skin thanks to SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence! I guess everyone in my life who has said “your mother is always right” wasn’t kidding. This stuff is magic. In this case, the magic ingredient is PiteraTM. PiteraTM is the bulk of SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence (aka ‘miracle water’ in a bottle) – It is derived from a unique yeast strain from a natural sake fermentation process that was discovered almost 40 years ago in Japan. PiteraTM’s mission is to improve your skin’s overall texture and appearance by promoting the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process while enhancing the renewal of your skin’s outer most layer and leaving you with younger-looking skin. It is safe to say, I am very glad that I decided to embark on this #OneBottleAwayFrom journey to both travel-proof and summer-proof my skin. I am almost through my first bottle of SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence, and I can easily see improvements in my overall skin quality. Now I can feel as confident as ever that my skin will not be too greatly effected by my travels and the summer heat by embarking in this #OneBottleAwayFrom journey.
In my multi-stepped skin care regimen, using this product has got to be the least complicated process in it. I pour a small amount of the Facial Treatment Essence into the palm of my hands, and press it gently onto my face until the essence has soaked in. If I have them around, I try to apply it with a cotton pad instead of my hands – it enhances the overall absorption. Pro-tip: press the product along your neck as well so that your skin tone will be even throughout your whole face and neck. I have been using it twice a day, and I loved that this product was so simple to add to my daily regimen. The process takes 30 seconds (at most) to do each time, and if that means spending one single minute of my day for even-toned, radiant, and bright skin, then you best believe that I have and will continue to be doing this on the daily. The secret to anti-aging is literally in this bottle, and it is the best kept Asian beauty secret.
With that being said, I am almost through this bottle, and I definitely plan on restocking for life. I have confidently been going makeup free more often, and wouldn’t have it any other way! My skin has never been so radiant, and now I am feeling as confident as ever to travel to different climates this month, and know that I will not have to worry about my skin texture and tone fluctuating. Who knew that all of the answers to my worries about my travel and summer skin issues would be answered by using this whole bottle of SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence. I am so glad to have embarked in the #OneBottleAwayFrom journey. I call this a win.
