ARK throughout the ages

  Monday 19th March 2012

Skincare has always been an important part of a beauty regime, from preparing your foundation to finding the best products for your skin type; this week The Upcoming explores ARK Age Aware Skincare.

Hardly a day goes by without the launch of a new skincare product, so to make an impact on the market you need to be pretty special and live up to your claims. ARK complete an all-round assessment approach, which is why the product range they prescribe is perfect for you.

Their mantra for skincare is to be age appropriate. Think about your age and the environment to which your skin has been exposed. No one wishes to hear this, but as we age our immune system weakens and our hormones change; this has a large impact upon our skin, and rather than fight against it, ARK embrace it and incorporate these factors into their unique and empowering ranges; Teens to early 30s, Mid 30s to 50 and 50 and beyond.

ARK know the power of science and their collaboration with Dr Penny Kenfall Reed, a leading expert in nutritional skincare, has strengthen their product range with a three-step principle we can all learn to love: age prepare, age maintain and age repair. The science behind ARK is comprehensive and has an outlook that we can all embrace: skin is the mirror of our health and ARK helps to  protect our largest, most exposed organ.

The products contain powerful anti-oxidants to help prevent damage from free radicals; they use white tea, blue lotus and gojiberry. The products also contain ingredients to protect from sagginess, puffiness, inflammation and wrinkle formation, and these consists of lipids such as omega 3, 6 and 9, which do the essential task of keeping your skin hydrated, soften and replenished. The products finally contain ingredients such as vitamin A, C and E to protect your skin against the hormonal ageing-process and sun-damage.

The three-step principle is fortified by their range of eight Skin Response serums, which is designed to be a bio-active treatment.

To recommend specific products is very difficult, as every product is perfect for some people and not so for others, I therefore urge you to complete a self-assessment and take their recommendations by clicking here.
