How To Battle Summer-Time Dryness With SK-II + Chiara Ferragni

Happy Friday, beautiful people. 🙂 I am LOVING the warm weather we are having lately here in Missouri (aside from, you know, all the rain). I absolutely cannot wait until Memorial Day when my pool opens up! I plan on doing ALL my work in front of the pool and getting a nice tan to go along with it. Now in addition to all that sunshine — there is something that REALLY drives me crazy: my dry skin. Typically throughout the year, I have extremely oil skin. But when I’m in chlorine and the sun, my skin takes a beating and it gets flaky and g r o s s. SO. In honor of the impending dry skin, let’s jump into it.

SK-II’s iconic Facial Treatment Essence contains over 90% Pitera™, the brand’s signature ingredient discovered more than 35 years ago.

With over 50 micro-nutrients, the signature ingredient Pitera™ conditions skin and helps soothe skin surface concerns that can be caused by a range external aggressors such as harsh UV and pollution.

SK-II is an amazing brand with amazing ingredients, and they teamed up with National Geographic to showcase just how far your skin can go and be protected with their products. I took a special interest in this particular episode because it features Global fashion icon Chiara Ferragni. Not only is she a fashion superstar, but she got her start with her fashion blog in October of 2009. It gives hope to the little guys. 😉 She was profiled in Teen Vogue as blogger of the moment and has since been on the cover of 15 different magazines worldwide. She is one of my biggest role models and classic #ladyboss.

My Thoughts

There are a lot of brands that do a really great job with their products. I have a ton that I use to help fight the dryness of the summer heat and chlorine combo. HOWEVER. I am love love loving the approach that SK-II took to show their customers how incredible the product ACTUALLY is. I know you will love this product as much as I do. 10/10, kiddos. Plus don’t you want to look just like Chiara? Because I know I do….

It is TOTALLY possible to keep your skin GORGEOUS, even with the summer sun beating down on you. While it is always really smart to keep your skin as healthy as possible, but especially when the weather is particularly harsh. I know I’m not the only one who struggles with this. Take a leap and try it for yourself!

I drink alot of water and it work due to the dry hair in the house because of using alot of heat from the radiator to kee us warm.
