In my mind perfect skin just sort of happens, no work is needed. You know, it’s in my genes! Well, I also believe in fairies and unicorns (please don’t try to tell me otherwise). In the real world, we know that perfect skin requires good products and daily work. It’s something that you start doing before the wrinkles and the puffy bags form and commit to a cozy spot on your face (read: a good skin care regimen should be in place before you turn 40).
But if your mother wasn’t like mine and didn’t drill the importance of taking care of your skin, I’ve got good news for you. There are a few products on the market that can help you along the way and improve your skin regimen even if you are late to the party.
Insert SK-II Facial Treatment Essence!
So what is it?
I’m sure you’re asking, what is an Essence? Well, Essences are the combination of nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that can be applied to your skin to help your skin better absorb your serum and moisturizer. Essences have a clear liquid texture that’s highly concentrated with antioxidants, vitamins, organic acids and fermented probiotics.
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is one of the first “Essences” created. It features the highest concentration (over 90%) of PiteraTM. Pitera is derived from a unique yeast fermentation process that was discovered over 35 years ago in a Japanese Sake brewery after researchers noticed that Japanese Sake producers’ hands were abnormally soft. Think Cate Blanchett and her porcelain skin. Rumor has it, she’s been using Pitera for over ten years.
What are the benefits?
It helps moderate the skin surface renewal cycle and balances the skin’s moisture barrier for overall hydration and elasticity. It’s concentrated formula also specifically targets wrinkles, fine lines and dull/uneven skin tones.
How to use it.
It’s a simple step easy to incorporate into any skincare ritual. Just sprinkle a teaspoon into hands, pressing gently and evenly onto the face and neck. Skin will absorb the Essence quickly and naturally.
I’ve been using this product for a few days and I love the way my skin feels. It’s more supple and gives the appearance of a more even skin tone.
Ok now it’s your turn to go forth and have great skin. You’re welcome for the great tips!
