Apparently, there is a reason why Cate Blanchett’s complexion is so fresh and radiant: SK-II, products that boast a signature ingredient called Pitera, a blend of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids that enhances the renewal of the skin’s outer layer. As with most good things, Pitera was discovered quite by accident; it seems scientists were intrigued by the youthful appearance of the hands of workers at a Japanese sake brewery, so they set about trying to re-create the precise conditions of fermentation.
Anyway, I digress. The point of this post is that Miss Blanchett, spokeswoman for SK-II, has put her name on a line of travel-size potions called Cate’s Essentials Collection: Facial Treatment Essence, which helps promote radiant skin; Facial Treatment Repair C, which educes dryness and enriches skin; and a deeply hydrating Facial Treatment Mask. So now we have an arsenal of products to combat that tired and haggard look we get while traveling–and it’s all available at Saks Fifth Avenue. Nice!
