As a little girl, I’d watch my mother get ready in the morning in front of her bedroom mirror. Her skin was always glowing. Watching her take care of her face made me prioritize proper care of mine.
Especially now that my face is the first thing viewers see when I appear in their homes early in the morning glowing, clear skin is a priority for me.
Over the years, I have been extra careful about what I eat and despite never having been prone to acne as a teen, I have it as a concern as an adult. I know certain foods could cause unwanted blemishes so I keep away from them. And I make sure to only use products that won’t irritate my skin.
I was introduced to SK-II Facial Treatment Essence a couple of years ago. I recently changed up my daily routine to start with SK-II facial treatment for glowing skin because it targets wrinkles, fine lines and dull/uneven skin tones. I’m lucky to have good genes but I’m still concerned with how my skin will age.
Friends have called it miracle water and knowing celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman used it backstage at the Rag & Bone runway show last Fashion Week gave me reason to pour facial treatment essence on my hand and pat it on my face before using any other serum or moisturizer.
I was drawn to use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence after hearing it contained an ingredient that over 35 years ago was found to cause Japanese Sake brewery workers to have youthful hands. That ingredient, Pitera™ — helps moderate the skin surface renewal cycle and balances the skin’s moisture barrier for overall hydration and elasticity.
When our hectic schedules make taking care of our favorite feature not easy, it’s nice to find products that will do a little extra work on our behalf without us having to even think about it.
