SK-II: The Special Secret in Sake for Flawless Skin

SK-II: The Special Secret in Sake for Flawless Skin

Want flawless, soft and youthful skin like Cate Blanchett? What keeps her skin so perfectly crystal clear? Pitera, a nutrient-rich yeast product found in sake and SK-II, is the only skin care brand that uses 90% of pure Pitera. Blanchett has used SK-II skincare products for years and has been the face of SK-II for over 9 years. She credits the skincare brand for the remarkable transformation of the natural and healthy glow of her skin.

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. It’s the key ingredient to natural, healthy looking beautiful skin.

SK-II, founded in Japan in 1980, is one of the biggest beauty brands in the world and Japan’s number one selling prestige skincare brand. SK-II has an interesting history. It all started when scientists visited a sake brewery in Japan during the 1970’s. He noticed that all the elderly workers had wrinkly skin except for their hands, which were beautifully young and soft. Their hands were constantly in contact with the sake fermentation process. This led to 5 years of research when scientists isolated the signature ingredient Pitra.

They discovered that the nutrients in the fermented yeast helps increase the metabolism of skin cells, protects the skin against aging and restores the renewal cycle for clearer looking and smoother skin.

Pitera is an all natural enhancement of the skin’s cell renewal cycle for perfect complexion. In addition to skin regeneration, Pitera also helps moisturize the skin, smooth skin texture, brighten the skin tone for a youthful glow, balance the pH levels in the skin, prevent dark spots, heal sunburns and control sebum production for less breakouts and oily skin.

One of the popular skin care products of SK-II is The Facial Treatment Essence also known as  “holy water” or “miracle water.” This product has the highest concentration of pure Pitera, containing over 90% of the signature ingredient. The serum is designed to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin by promoting the skin’s natural surface renewal process. The serum absorbs quickly on to your skin for a refreshing feel of smoother, firmer, hydrated and brighter complexion. The liquid is very light just like water so it doesn’t feel oily and  feels like it’s barely there. This easy to use and simple-to-apply skin treatment serum is just one step closer to a luminous and radiant complexion.

    lol @ “holy water”. It’s an appealing phrase though for women who are looking for that “miraculous” transformation~
