Beauty Base – ARK Age Aware Skincare
Poppy Watt tests the two latest products in the Ark Age Aware Skincare range and gives them a big thumbs up.
Their age appropriate products come in three categories: Age Prepare (teens to early 30s), Age Maintain (mid 30s to 50) and Age Repair (50s and beyond)
I tried the new Anti-Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer (rrp £36). Four years in the making, the ARK SPF30 Primer is clinically tested and contains an advanced formulation fusing skincare and SPF to help protect the skin from sun damage and pollution, while enhancing its appearance and texture.
The ARK SPF30 Primer contains an Advanced Active Antioxidant system, combined with broad spectrum SPF30 protection from UVA and protection from UVB, to help prevent premature ageing, sun damage and counteract the effects of urban living. It’s the ideal daily defence for your skin combining UVA = Age Protection + UVB = Burn Prevention + Antioxidants = Free Radical Defence, so perfect for use any time of the year.
Suitable for every skin type, it is lightweight and helps your makeup glide on and stay in place longer. Your skin will glow with a subtle luminescence, giving you a radiant, healthy appearance as well as being protected against dehydration.
Recommended to be applied over moisturiser and under make-up, the ARK SPF30 Primer will help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves skin feeling silky smooth. I found that when I was using this product a little really does go a long way, so it is also economical.
The key natural ingredients include Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that helps to protect and repairs your skin, Shea Butter to nourish and protect from free radicals (molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles) Jojoba, Mimosa and Sunflower packed with vitamins and minerals.
I found the new Regenerating Skin Defence (rrp £70) a very versatile product– this product uses advanced plant stem-cell technology to help repair and regenerate skin cells.
Designed for all skin types and only needing to be applied once in the morning to provide all-day protection, Regenerating Skin Defence will help protect the skin and defend against pollution and provide super nourishment for a healthier, brighter, radiant look. It also helps to reduce the skin’s visible signs of stress and fatigue.
The excellent dispensing system for the moisturisers allows you to use just the right amount, avoiding wastage. This airless pump allows ARK to use more active ingredients, which helps avoid cross contamination and oxidation.
ARK Regenerating Skin Defence is a powerful combination of essential daily vitamins, plant stem cells, antioxidants and lipids to regenerate, repair and renew.
Key ingredients include:
• The stem cells of Alpine Rose which protect against environmental stress, increase skin stem cell vitality, boost epidermal regeneration and improve skin barrier function
• Natural Vitamin C that promotes the synthesis of collagen in the skin, helping to increase suppleness
• Hyaluronic Acid booster which helps maintain moisturised skin and therefore encourages firm skin by improving cell cohesion.
I have beconme a big fan of the ARK skincare philosophy and have not been disappointed with any of the products in the range I have tried.
