Dare to Bare!

    I’m one of those girls who grew up watching SK-II TVC showing their brand ambassadors in crystal clear skin with minimal make up. The scene will then move to feature an elderly worker with wrinkled face, but extraordinary soft and youthful hand that were in constant contact with the sake fermentation process.
    Behind the scenes of every skin-care ad, there’s a great discovery story and the story of SK-II began at a sake brewery in Japan. It took years of research for scientists to isolate the miracle ingredient: Pitera™, a naturally-derived liquid from the yeast fermentation process that boasts amino acids, minerals, organic acids and vitamins. It helps transform skin to become crystal clear and translucent.

    Traces of the scenes became so implanted in my mind that I told myself that I’m so going to use the whole series of SK-II products when I grow old. Before I knew it, I’ve already started incorporating SK-II products into my beauty regime even before I hit 25. I realised that achieving new and healthy skin with the right products and the right ingredient – Pitera™ does not start after the first sign of aging occurs. I should have done it as early as possible!
    I’m not blessed with naturally good skin and have to work extra hard at keeping my skin in check. As you can see, I’m being troubled by acne marks, uneven skin tone, redness and pigmentation.
    Whitening Spot Specialist is one of my favourite products; it not only lightens dark spots but penetrates deep down to target five times more unseen spots that have yet to appear on the skin’s surface. The well-known component Pitera™ helps to give crystal clear skin too!
    While the effect is not life alluring after a few applications, I do feel a difference. My skin tone appears to be more even and my freckles have lightened. It’s all attributable to the miracle of Pitera™! It helps to bio-shift your skin to crystal clear; improves the 5 dimensions (firmness, wrinkle resilience, refined texture, spots control, and radiance) of your skin and to help you get the best skin.
    Now the only thing lacking in my daily beauty regime is the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence that contains over 90% pure Pitera™. I’ve heard so much about it and have even witnessed some of the major improvement in skin texture it brought to women around me. Friends and families are so passionate about Facial Treatment Essence that they describe it as their ‘miracle water’. I’m so tempted!
    Fortunately for me, SK-II is introducing a starter kit for first time curious user – SK-II Pitera Essence set that’s retailing for RM 199. This set is inclusive of a Facial Treatment Essence 75ml, Facial Treatment Clear Lotion 40ml, 1 pc Facial Treatment Mask. A great deal not to be missed!

    Did you notice Tang Wei as SK-II brand ambassador? She has an amazing skin and she’s also very clear about her future direction and goals. When asked how she defines beauty, she revealed “Skin that looks good without makeup – that, I believe, is what makes a woman truly beautiful.”

    Which I agree wholeheartedly…
    That leads me to pledge to bare my skin for a day. Its part of a SK-II campaign to educate women in being confident enough to bare their true skin. When you get the best skin, you don’t need to apply so much makeup. On this day, I’m playing up my skin with minimal make up (only sun screen and lip gloss).
    It was a great challenge for me going to work bare faced because quite frankly, I would rather be penniless than to leave the house without powdering my noses or swiping on my trusty foundation. My initial anxiety and hesitation vanished when my colleagues commented me that I actually looked younger with minimal make up. And I have some spare time for breakfast too!
    On that night itself, some friends came over to my place for dinner and I felt really comfortable without any traces of makeup. For the first time, I’m revealing my bare face to my closest friends but it did not send them into shock. So I guess it’s a good start? :p
    If I can do it, you can too! Support the campaign and take your own pledge to bare your true skin for a day. You’ll be surprised at how light and free your skin feels. Share with us your pictures here. The 20 best entries will stand to win an SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (150ml) worth RM359!
