CATE BLANCHETT’S SUMMER SKIN SECRETS
Find out how the Oscar winner and SK-II ambassador keeps her skin glowing all summer long
Exuding elegance both on and off the red carpet, SK-II global ambassador Cate Blanchett is the epitome of flawless radiance.
While we may not be able to emulate her remarkable acting talent, it is possible to achieve her winning look of smooth, glowing skin during the summer.
Here, Cate shares her 4 beauty and skincare secrets for achieving that perfect summer glow:
1. Never stop using Facial Treatment Essence.
As a long-time loyal user of SK-II’s iconic Facial Treatment Essence, Cate insists on incorporating the Pitera-packed miracle essence into her everyday skincare routine, no matter the season or situation. “I would never stop using the Facial Treatment Essence of course,” she says.
2. Use a whitening serum.
In the warmer months of the Spring/Summer season, Cate’s skincare regime focuses on UV protection to shield her skin from the damaging effects of sun exposure, as well as radiance enhancement for added luminosity - which is why she gravitates to SK-II's GenOptics line. “The GenOptics Aura Essence is fantastic because it does focus and target on any discoloration that happens.”
3. Stick to lighter beauty products.
“As Spring revolves into Summer, I try to keep the products I use from the SK-II range lighter,” says Cate, opting for less-heavy moisturizers and versatile products – such as the Auractivator CC Cream – that give her skin the benefits and nourishment it needs without weighing it down.
4. Keep makeup to a minimum.
Whether it’s summer or winter, Cate prefers not to wear too much makeup in her everyday life. “That’s why my skin regime is so important,” she says.
With its light emulsion formula, SK-II’s new Crystal Skin Perfecting Cream Compact Foundation Artisan Brush Foundation (UV/Light) gives Cate the ideal balance of light makeup with a flawless look for summer. “I really love the new SK-II foundation because it gives great coverage but it still allows you to feel like your skin is shining through,” she says.
