Wedding Skincare Prep with SK-II

Friends, our October wedding beauty countdown is officially ON. Never have I been more conscious of how I’m caring my skin—and that’s saying something considering I was already obsessive about it! I have many wishes for the most beautiful day of my life, and one of them is to look as radiant and joyful on the outside as I feel on the inside. To ensure that wedding-ready glow, I’ve embarked on a #OneBottleAwayFrom journey with SK-II Facial Treatment Essence.

I’ve been giving my skin the royal treatment in preparation: drinking more water, staying out of the sun, and treating it to the best products. I remembered that a wedding makeup artist friend, Hannah (who’s also contributed to this blog, so you know she means business), swears by SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and decided to incorporate it into my routine. It also didn’t hurt that Cate Blanchett swears by this “miracle water” and you know how flawless her skin is . . .

SK-II is one of those rare brands that combines luxury and science to skin-transforming effect. With Facial Treatment Essence you’re not just investing in a gorgeous bottle (though there’s that), you’re feeding your skin with more than 90% pure Pitera™, a very special ingredient discovered in Japan 37 years ago and derived from a unique yeast strain from a natural sake fermentation process. Pitera™ promotes skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process and balances the moisture barrier. Translation: smoother texture, more even skin tone (so long, sunspots), and more hydrated, radiant skin.

I can’t help but feel like a million dollars when I’m pressing SK-II Facial Treatment Essence it into my skin morning and night (after cleansing and before moisturizing). It’s a moment of zen, a reminder to slow down amidst the excitement of party planning and monogramming anything that will sit still. And my skin has never looked better—or more bride-like.

P.S. You don’t need a wedding to transform your skin! Take SK-II’s #OneBottleAwayFrom journey and experience the beautifying benefits of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence.
