SK-II has released a limited edition bottle of their best-selling Facial Treatment Essence, featuring the traditional Chinese art form of intricate paper cutting. 

When I checked my zodiac prediction for the Year of the Monkey, it heralded new found vitality but also warned me against rash behaviour.

But if there’s anything that looking at my signs have taught me, it’s that destiny mostly lies in my own hands. This year, I’m making it my personal resolution to attain clear and glowing skin, which means having the discipline to stick to a skincare regime.

Rising phoenix, revitalised skin

Just for the festive season, SK-II has released a limited edition bottle of their best-selling Facial Treatment Essence, featuring the traditional Chinese art form of intricate paper cutting. The beautiful resurrection of a phoenix is embodied in the motifs, hopefully representative of my wish for revitalised skin.

Formula-wise, it contains 90% Pitera — the brand’s signature ingredient which promises to transform your skin along the dimensions of firmness, radiance, texture and more.

To kick off a year of better and clearer skin, here are some top tips from makeup guru Larry Yeo, to help you achieve a glowing facade.

1. Focused hydration

Saturate your cotton pad with SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and leave it on the dry patches on your skin. This procedure, called focused hydration, helps to re-hydrate specific areas.

2. Boost moisture

For your next step, pour a small dollop of the SK-II Facial Treatment Oil into your palms and massage it onto your face to boost moisture. Then using your finger, dab the product on areas which feel dry or tight.

3. Anti-oxdidise

With your skin well-hydrated, you can now use minimal drops of SK-II Stem Power Essence on your face. The product promotes your skin cells’ anti-oxidation function.

4. Eye power

For bright peepers, turn to the SK-II Stem Power Essence. Using your ring finger, massage a small amount across your under eye and nasal fold.

5. Combat flakiness

If you’re suffering from flaky skin, it may be a result of dead skin cell build up. A quick fix is to spray the SK-II Mid-Night Essence on your face. Its fine mist is quickly absorbed into the skin, even over makeup.

6. Fight signs of ageing

Sun exposure is one of the top causes of skin ageing, so think twice before heading out without your sunscreen! Simply spread the SK-II Facial Treatment SPF 25 Sunscreen across your face, onto your neck and not forgetting, your ears. The protective day lotion is rich in Pitera and UV protection.

 The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence New Phoenix Limited Edition 230ml is available from $259 at all SK-II counters.
