A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I had found the one in terms of eye cream. This was thanks 
to SK-II's amazing formula. I wanted to find out more about the brand and the products, so I 
decided to speak with the Australian Ambassador for SK-II and an all round babe 

What products from SK-II do you use on a daily basis?

​ To start, I apply 3-4 drops of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence onto clean skin. My skin soaks it 
up quite quickly so I then follow with SK-II Whitening Power Spots Specialist, which treats 
any pigmentation I might have – perfect for the summer months. Afterwards, I apply a pea-
sized amount of SK-II Stempower Eye Cream and gently massage it around my delicate eye 
area. To finish, I apply SK-II Stempower Face Cream before finishing with an SPF 50 
sunscreen.​

What first drew you towards the brand?

​ I've been using the brand ever since my mum first introduced me to it when I was 18 or so. 
At the time, I was suffering from teen acne and needed something that could help calm my 
skin from the acne-fighting skincare, which was drying it out. It was then that I started 
using SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and I haven't stopped since! It makes my skin glow. 
I'm really passionate about caring for my skin – and as a prestige brand, SK-II is too – which 
is why working with them was such an organic relationship. I'm very proud to be part of
 the SK-II family!​

If you had to choose just one product from the range, which would it be?

​ Definitely the Facial Treatment range. The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, SK-II
routine all year round. While each product is incredibly gentle and nourishing, they're 
also effective in treating dark spots, diminishing fine lines, evening out skin tone and 
helping your skin achieve an all over luminous glow.​

Can the products work on problematic breakouts as well as anti-ageing?

​ Yes – I first started using SK-II Facial Treatment Essence when my skin was covered 
in breakouts! Because all SK-II products contain Pitera – a byproduct of the 
fermentation process which is a liquid rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic 
acids – they're able to dramatically improve the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation
 process without irritating it. This miracle ingredient bears close resemblance to the 
skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors so skin is able to repair itself while being nourished 
at the same time – this is why it's suitable for sensitive skin. If you have a few blemishes, 
I recommend applying SK-II Facial Treatment Essence in conjunction with your current 
skincare regime (always apply after cleansing). And, if you have cystic acne, it's always 
best to see a dermatologist.​

What's the one skincare tip you have always stood by?

​ Never go to bed with makeup on.​
