Your skin has its own story and potential. For SK-II, its story started more than 30 years ago at a sake brewery in Japan, where scientists discovered what would become the basis for Pitera™, a pure blend of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids that helps skin rejuvenate naturally. Now this luxurious skin-care brand, which helps A-listers like Cate Blanchett stay fresh-faced and flawless, is also behind one of the most exciting beauty stories this spring.

Starting in early April, SK-II launched pop-up studios in New York and San Francisco dedicated to understanding your complexion through expert analysis and groundbreaking beauty innovations. Now through May 23, you can test products, get a complimentary personalized consultation, and experience the new Beauty Imaging System™. This revolutionary new tool predicts your skin’s visible age and designs an SK-II product regimen based around it. Using close-up pictures of your face, the system analyzes your skin using the five components of crystal-clear, ageless skin: Texture Refinement, Firmness Power, Wrinkle Resilience, Radiance, and Tone.

For the high-profile launch, beauty editors and industry insiders were invited to preview the SK-II Pop-Up Studios with one-on-one skin consultations using SK-II's new Beauty Imaging System, and presentations from celebrity makeup artist Dotti and nutritionist to the stars, Dr. Oz Garcia. Now New York magazine readers can also get the beauty-editor treatment with a special evening hosted by The Cut’s beauty editor Kathleen Hou on Thursday, April 17, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Check out the SK-II Pop-Up Studios and learn how you can achieve an ageless, radiant complexion using science and beauty innovation.
