In Conversation with Arika Sato


We asked the content creator about skincare, wellness, and her ultimate beauty must-haves.

Q: What’s your favorite SKKN product and why? 

My absolute favorite SKKN BY KIM product is this Cleanser. It's a foaming cleanser and as much as I love being full glam, I love taking off my makeup as soon as I get home and having a clean face, and just feeling fresh. So I love this Cleanser so much because it takes off all my makeup in just one wash, and it's not aggressive. It's very soft and keeps my face very shiny and smooth.

Q: What beauty essentials do you never leave the house without?

I always have lip products In my purse. I love lip balm, lipstick, lip gloss, lip liner. I just have to have at least 5 items minimum in my purse because I always love a juicy, plump lip.

Q: What’s your favorite splurge?

I love clothes and shoes – Anything new, cute, trendy, sexy, hot... I want it all.

Q: What's your pre-workout skincare routine?

I workout early in the morning, I wake up literally at 5AM to do my workout. But I do my skincare right before. I actually wash my face with the SKKN BY KIM Cleanser in the morning, because if you didn't know, you actually need to wash your face in the morning because it kinda gets dirty while you're sleeping. And then I do my Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I love this stuff so much, it really goes into my skin and makes it glowy. And then I do my moisturizer and then my Eye Cream, and that is my base. And then I put on my SPF and head to my workout.

Q: What are you most excited for this summer?

I am so excited about traveling this summer! I'm actually going to Japan to see my family. It's a big family trip that I'm doing to see my family in Japan to really connect with my roots and my culture and where my family came from. So I am really excited about that, and I'm also going to be doing a Euro trip with my best friend. I just love traveling in the summer.
