SK-II has teamed up with global fashion icon, Chiara Ferragni, to test their Facial Treatment Essence skincare product against some of the most arid conditions in the world.

SK-II has been a leading skincare provider for more than 35 years and has helped countless women achieve crystal clear skin. SK-II was surprisingly formed at a Japanese Sake Factory. Scientists noticed that most of the elderly workers in the factory had wrinkled faces, but extremely soft and youthful looking hands. These same hands that had daily contact with the Sake fermentation process. It took years of research, but scientists were finally able to pinpoint the key ingredient that was helping the workers have such incredible skin, PiteraTM, a naturally derived liquid from the fermentation process. When conditioned by PiteraTM, skin is able to lock moisture from within over time to overcome dryness, that can be caused by extreme heat and low moisture climates as well as cold and dry climates.

SK-II, striving to put Facial Treatment Essence containing 90% PiteraTM, to the test sent Chiara to the hottest and most arid climate they could find and had her face the wild. After experiencing dehydration, dizziness and dry heat they put her in front of the camera for a photoshoot. The pictures and video definitely speak for themselves, Chiara is glowing even after her time in the desert proving just how amazing the Facial Treatment Essence really is.

Now, I know we don't always spend our days in the desert, but Summer is approaching and our time in the sun will definitely have an affect on our skin. I know the facial treatment essence is going to be a lifesaver for me in the coming months. Are you ready to face the wild?
