Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips with SK-II Steve Jan (Massage Monday #386)
Hi everyone I am Yasuko and it’s time for massage Monday. This week I’m doing something special and I have a special guest here Steve. Hi everyone I’m Steve so excited to be on Yasuko’s channel today. Little bit about me to everyone. I have YouTube channels called MrJanAllInOne.
On my channel, I do a travel luxury and beauty and I’ve been with a skincare company called SK-II for 14 years. And today we’re gonna do four easy steps to make you look even more beautiful. Yes! And he’s an anti-aging expert and I get a lot of requests for anti-aging facial stuff so he’s gonna show us how to do it.
So the first step is we’ll want to cleanse Yasuko’s face. Since we don’t have a water here, I’m going to use the lightweight toning lotions and that will remove her makeup really good.
Ideally, you want to use cleanser to wash your face is the best. What I do, I like to put it on the cotton and lightly swipe like this way. And we’re gonna leave the eye makeup alone so we’re not touching her eye makeup. Your skin’s good. Thank you.
Well, I have been using the SK-II. So I’m gonna clean this. I’m gonna clean the other side real quick. For skin care, the most important thing is your cleansing. If you don’t cleanse your skin properly, the skin care will not go in deep enough and do what it’s supposed to do.
We learned that especially in the U.S. people are so busy and they don’t take time to wash their face. So taking time to wash your face is very important. I’m guilty of that.
Just a little bit more. Make sure you completely clean. How’s that feel? That feels good. And you have a dry skin or oily skin? I have a combination but I think lately it was kind of getting drier. Getting drier. I think it’s because of a pre-menopausal. Hormonal. Yeah and the weather we’re live in California it is a little bit drier.
So that we just clean the face, clean the neck. Now we’re gonna move to the next step.
After cleansing the face, the first product I recommend Yasuko to use is SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. And this is the product I have been using for 14 years.
It truly is amazing that you use couple drops on a cotton pad and then you press on the face for one minute the entire face. So we’re gonna do half the face to show you guys before and after a little bit. As you press you want to see the water essence on the skin like this. You’re supposed to feel very hydrated as you press in there. Yes. And you’ve been using the essence. Yes.
Ideally, you want to use this after toner before your treatments. And what is in this Facial Treatment Essence is the ingredient called Pitera™ that was discovered about 35 years ago in Japan. The scientists that visited sake brewery noticed that workers had pronounced lines or wrinkle on the faces but the skin of hands were very smooth. He discovered when they’re making sake, the hand is immersing in that liquid. So he thinks that liquid may be the reason why they have the beautiful hands.
So they studied the liquid for over five years. It turned out the liquid naturally contained all these good vitamins, amino acids and minerals in there. He named the liquid called Pitera™ and that becomes “secret key” to the beautiful skin 35 years ago. And that’s what SK-II stand for.
Interesting story. Yeah very interesting. And that you can see the skin with the essence and without the essence. Mmm yeah, it feels hydrated here already. So now let me finish the other side of the skin.
It’s good to pat it? Or press it in? Press in there. The reason why is our skin naturally creates a barrier. That’s what you see outside. And as we age we don’t renew the skin naturally so there’s a lot of dead skin on top. So when you apply skin care a lot of times they don’t go inside. They sit on top.
So essence, when you press, it’s forced to go in deeper. In fact, the Essence is very, under the microscope the very
similar to human skin cells. So when I press they go in deeper. I see. So they do better job.
Here’s around the eye area too. More you do, the better your skin is going to look. I want to show Yasuko a little tip here. Sometimes you get really dry on the cheek area. After the cotton pad, don’t waste this. Put this right here. That’s a little mini mask. Nice. Few minutes. Like it.
Because Yasuko told me that you worry about aging, so we’re going to show you this protocol R.N.A. Power Essence.
What the serum gonna do for you is help you plump and hydrate your skin, reduce pore size and fine line and the biggest thing I want to show is that, when you use a bottle like that, you must use the whole dropper. Oh okay.
A lot of people use one drop. Right. That’s not enough. So use a lot. You have to use more yes. I see. You would just want to pat around the skin like that. And this I’m gonna embarrass myself. You are a massage expert so I’m gonna show you what we do but probably not as good as what you do. Well, I’m not an esthetician. I’m a massage therapist. I don’t really massage the face.
So we want to just glide upward the skin. As I touch your skin, honestly your skin does feel a little bit more drier. Yeah and it’s very important when our skin feels dry, you must hydrate the skin before you put
anything. Because if you don’t hydrate it nothing is gonna really work underneath the skin. Just like that. Very simple. How’s that feel? Good and I like the acupressure points you’re pressing too. I’m learning a lot from you so. It’s very important to drink too right? To hydrate from the inside. Yes to hydrate the skin.
Let’s move on to the next step.
After the serum, I definitely recommend you start with a moisturizer so I’m going to use the SK-II R.N.A. Power Cream.
But I want to be honest with you I’m not saying you have to use SK-II skin care. You can use any skin care you like but a trick is that to find the skin care that addresses your skin concern. So for example, you worry about anti-aging. So all your skin care should be anti-aging. Don’t buy brightening. That makes sense? Yeah that’s the biggest mistake people do. They bought a wrong product for the skin. I see. So I’m gonna put a little bit. Actually, put a lot. Your skin is very dry. So after that we’re gonna just glide on the skin.
I’ll leave the eye area alone because we’re gonna apply eye cream later. See I said I glide the skin. I’m not pulling the skin so that’s good. If you pull the skin actually gonna cause more wrinkle. I sometimes get the question that you know face massage, isn’t it bad because you’re pulling a skin? I see. So that’s how you do it. Very simple. You glide over. I glide over yes. See Voila. Fast and easy.
Let’s finish the last final step.
To complete your skin care ritual I wanna finish with R.N.A. Power Eye Cream.
A lot of people would say use a ring finger to apply eye cream. I want to show you my little tip right here. The best way is to put eye cream on the back of your hand. And you massage til there’s no color.
Once there is no color you basically pat around the eye area using your ring finger. The reason why is if you put eye cream direct on the skin, it’s too much cream on the skin, it can cause little milia or little bump.
So this way you will not have that issue. And then if you’re worried about aging you can glide but see I’m not pulling your eyes. I’m gonna glide. See this you have to be very careful with this one because if you pull the skin you’re gonna get more wrinkled than ever. So that’s the key you glide over.
Yes so once again any eye cream should do the jobs. Just make sure it’s for anti-aging. And if worry about puffiness and dark circle, you don’t want to buy eye cream. You wanna eye gel. Oh okay. Because that you need a massage to reduce puffiness and dark circle. So you use the eye gel.
You asked me earlier about if you concern both anti-aging and brightening what do you do. Yeah. Honestly, one for day and one for night. The reason why is that you can’t put too much product on the face. Anything more than five, six that’s just too much and skin won’t even absorb. So I would do anti-aging at night, brightening in the daytime. I see. Good to note.
How often do you recommend you do this? Like every day? Skincare? Yeah. Day and Night. You’re so cute. Be diligent. Yeah I mean if you don’t have the time you don’t need to massage. I just pat it on. This is okay but if you have time massage a little bit.
So that’s it that’s your little four-step skin care.
Easy. And it feels amazing. It feels so hydrated and plumped than ever before so yeah this works.
So thank you very much for doing the anti-aging facial. I feel so plumped and hydrated and it’s just amazing. Can you come over like every day? You can come to my place every day. That’s okay.
