It’s still that time of year where your skin needs that little extra boost of moisture and hydration, as the warm weather still isn’t going to be here (in the UK) for a little while. Of course it’s important to cleanse and moisturise your skin, but sometimes that’s just not enough. I’ve added two products to my routine, and I can honestly say it’s made such a difference in giving my skin constant hydration, moisture and a natural glow. These products were kindly sent to me by ARK Skincare, but all opinions are honestand my own.
ARK Skincare is a British Beauty brand that uses all natural ingredients to target different ages and skin concern needs. They have 4 groups for age concern, teens to 20’s, 30s and 40s, 50 and over and also products that are formulated for all ages. The products deliver professional and salon grade at home treatments, which are highly effective for each individual.
If you want to give your skin a well-deserved treat, this serum from ARK is what you should go for. The lightweight formula gives an instant intense burst of moisture to plump skin as well as fine lines. It’s packed with minerals to fight off dullness and protect your skin from any signs of ageing. It smells gorgeous and refreshing to, as the formula contains cucumber extract to boost elasticityand prevent wrinkles (always best to start with your ageing products early!).
I’ve noticed such a difference in my skin, in hydration levels as well as my skin looking a lot more plumped and fresh. I find it really easy and clean to apply, and also sinks into the skin quickly without leaving a greasy sheen like some serums can. Apply 2-3 drops to with your fingertips directly onto your skin after cleansing. RRP £42
This intensive hydration masque works to quench skin, restore vibrancy and give you all the vitamins you need. The masque is best for those suffering with tired, stressed and dull looking skin. With this your skin will look rested, restored and smooth with a healthy, youthful glow. This masque has left my skin feeling nourished and revived day in day out until the next time I use it!
The vitamins are their uses:
A – regulate collagen synthesis
B5 – for smoothness
C – help fade pigmentation
E – to prevent UV damage
I’ve used this in the two different recommended timeframes for my age – just 5 minutes and also overnight for a more intense treatment. I prefer the overnight treatment as it gives your skin a salon perfected glow, as well as a surge of moisture and boost of hydration that lasts longer. However, leaving it on for the shorter recommended time does work as a good quick fix to perk up your skin. It really gives a salon finish in the comfort of your own home. RRP £35
Use one or twice a week by applying a thin layer to cleansed skin – remove with a hot cloth. Depending on your age, leave as stated below:
Teens and 20s: 5 minutes
30s and 40s: 10 minutes
50+: 20 minutes
Leave on overnight for an intensive treatment
