Bare Skin Day

It's every woman's dream to have crystal clear skin. Skin that is so clear, you don't have to hide under makeup.

Yes I love makeup and it's fun to experiment with different looks. But there are times when I just want to go "bare". Besides, wearing too much makeup is not good for the skin. I mean, have you seen Hollywood actresses with and without makeup on? Some look so different, don't they? Almost unrecognizable!

I don't want to depend too much on makeup to make me look good. I was never a fan of heavy makeup anyways which is why I usually opt for light to medium coverage. When you wear makeup, you don't just cover your skin. You actually cover your natural beauty as well.

Tang Wei, a Renowned Asian Actress who is also an SK-II user of 1 year said, "Skin that looks good without makeup - that, I believe, is what makes a woman truly beautiful".

I totally agree. Even guys prefer natural beauty in women than made-up beauty, no?
(My husband does!)

Anyway, currently there's a "bare skin day" campaign by SK-II. The aim of this campaign is to celebrate true beauty in women and I'm showing my support by wearing almost no make up for one whole day during my girls' day out with my friend the other day.

The only makeup I had on my face were tinted moisturizer and mascara
(baby powder and lip balm don't count as makeup right?)

I usually can't leave the house without eyeliner, but not that day.
I'm baring it all!

Even my friend was wearing very little makeup.

I don't think I've ever been to shopping malls with almost no makeup before. That was my first time! It felt a bit awkward at first. My skin felt so... bare. I was a little conscious of how I looked like without makeup, but not for long. It actually turned out great. I didn't have to keep on checking myself in the mirror for any makeup smudges; I didn't even need to touch up or anything. I could eat and shop freely without worrying about my makeup!

And best of all, I could get ready in just 30 minutes!

You can take your own pledge to bare your true skin too, just for a day, and who knows you could win an SK-II product that could transform your skin to crystal clear! Just so you know, only SK-II products contain PiteraTM - a miracle ingredient that improves all 5 dimensions of skin which includes firmness, wrinkle resilience, refined texture, spots control and radiance.

There was an observation made in a sake brewery in Japan, somewhere in the mid 1970's. The workers had extraordinarily soft and youthful hands, even the elderly ones. Turned out that the workers' hands were constantly in contact with a liquid produced during the sake fermentation process and scientists concluded there was "something" in the fermented liquid that had amazing power to renew and nurture skin. That "something" is PiteraTM!

PiteraTM is a concentrated liquid that's rich in vitamins, organic and amino acids, and minerals. Its combination of nutrients is similar to that found in healthy, new skin. I was surprised to find out that PiteraTM brings so many benefits to skin. It helps moderate the natural functions of skin, replenishes skin's moisture, smoothes skin surface texture, helps to make skin crystal clear, soothes sunburned skin, balances skin's pH and achieves a good balance of sebum. No wonder the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is called "Miracle Water"!

On top of that, the natural bio-ingredient with more than 50 micro-nutrients seemed to protect against stress and damage that we encounter daily. I've heard a lot of great reviews about this product and now I feel like adding the "Miracle Water" back to my daily facial routine, especially because of this promotion:

This PiteraTM Essence Set includes a Facial Treatment Essence 75ml, Facial Treatment Clear Lotion 40ml and 1 pc Facial Treatment Mask. It's a great starter kit and it's available at all SK-II counters.

I've shown my support for this campaign, now it's your turn! You can do your own pledge to bare your skin for a day and submit your entry here. The 20 (yes, TWENTY) best entries will win an SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (150ml) a.k.a the "Miracle Water" worth RM359. C'mon ladies, let's show off your natural beauty!
