As many of you can relate to this, many nights I stay up late working, the stress, pollutions in the air, the sun, has taken a toll on my skin. It leaves me an un-even skin tone that’s dull & lacklustre.

It has been almost 6 months I’ve been using SK-II Skincare and I am amazed how it has magically even out my un-even skin tone and smooth out my skin texture! So I decided to to a blog about SK-II products we think it’s fabulous and it’s a must have for all of our readers!

I’ve discovered that many Asian women all want to have “White” skin, but I think the word “white” is miss-leading! nothing more un-attractive than a pale un-healthy skin! The key is to find the right skincare ritual that’s right for you to achieve a “Luminous Skin” that your skin tone is even and “bright” instead of lack of luster and dull.

In SK-II skincare, there is an key ingrediant “Pitera”that has been working wonders on mine and many people all over the world! (Even the beautiful actress Cate Blanchett is a big fan of this skincare line)

Pitera, was discovered purely by chance. About thirty years ago, a scientist noticed that the hands of workers at a Japanese saké brewery looked beautiful and young. This was the inspiration behind five years of research by a team of scientists who screened through over 300 types of yeasts and refined the precise conditions for fermentation, leading to the discovery of SK-II’s signature ingredient, Pitera.

Derived from a unique yeast’s fermentation, Pitera is a blend of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids that work together to allow the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime, enhancing the renewal of the skin’s outer layer. Continued usage of Pitera leads to clearer looking, smoother skin.

Pitera is the signature ingredient in all SK-II products, and is ‘the secret key’ to beautiful skin.

Facial Treatment Essence, which was also the basis of Cate Blanchett’s discovery of the brand is over 90% pure Pitera. It provides instant moisture, and works to improve both texture and clarity; to promote a radiant, glowing complexion.

Pitera, a ‘Secret Key’ to beautiful skin

Pitera is a singular blend of vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids that work together to help restore the appearance of your skin’s outer layers, by enabling the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process to function at its prime. Today, scientists continue to marry this miracle of nature with breakthrough science in the advanced skincare line SK-II – which, like Pitera, combines nature’s purity, incorporates timeless rituals for body and soul together with modern technology to restore the natural beauty of your skin.

So here are some of the skincare products I am currently using and it has worked like magic on my skin!
