ARK Skincare's approach to creating a skincare routine. Step one: Age

Here at ARK Skincare, we take a positive approach to ageing. We believe that no one age group has the monopoly on beauty and we are proud to be a brand that represents and celebrates all ages.

We understand skin changes with age and needs to be treated accordingly. Young skin needs protecting but not over stimulating. More mature skins need higher levels of nourishment, and help to keep skin supple and firm.

With that in mind, ARK Skincare offers three Age Intelligent ranges, specially designed for each age group: Protect for teens & 20s, Defend for 30s & 40s and Defy for 50s & onwards.  

In your Age Intelligent collection, you will find your age specific cleanser & moisturiser, packed full of hard-working active ingredients, carefully chosen to treat the skin of your age group.


ARK Skincare Age Intelligent Cleansers

We believe cleansing is the single most important thing you can do for your skin.

If you didn’t cleanse your skin, daily grime and airborne bacteria would build up on the skin and could lead to break-outs, skin irritation and premature aging. Therefore, using a high quality cleanser with hard-working ingredients is crucial to remove grime and ensure your skin is kept clean and healthy. 

Cleansing your skin also helps to ensure any skincare products you apply are able to properly penetrate the skin.

We suggest cleansing both morning and evening. Apply your Age Intelligent cleanser to lightly dampened skin and massage gently for 30-60 seconds before rinsing luke-warm water. In the evening, we would also highly recommend adding in a Pre-Cleanse oil. Oil based cleansers help to attract excess oils, sebum and make-up, helping to ensure the skin is left thoroughly cleansed.


ARK Skincare Age Intelligent Moisturisers

After cleansing your skin, the next step is to follow up with your age specific moisturiser. Moisturising helps to hydrate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. 

Each of ARK Skincare’s Age Intelligent moisturisers feed your skin with the antioxidants, lipids, and vitamins to suit your age related needs. Apply to cleansed skin morning and evening. 

Add extra nourishment with a night treatment

ARK Skincare Age Intelligent Night Treatment Creams

Do you fall into our Defend or Defy categories? As we get older, skin needs more help to keep hydrated and nourished. Therefore, you may also like to try our night treatment creams.

During deep sleep our body is able to repair and rejuvenate itself. The metabolic activity of skin cells is at its peak as we slumber, making it an ideal time to achieve maximum results from a targeted skin treatment.

ARK Skincare Night Treatment creams increase hydration, boost collagen and elasticity, detoxify, soothe, and reduce inflammation, allowing you to wake up looking rested and rejuvenated.

Skin concerns can occur at any age for many different reasons. Hormone changes, dietary habits or stress can all contribute to changes in our skin.

Whether you suffer from dry skin, oily skin, redness, fine lines or acne, our highly effective targeted treatments help to restore skin and bring it back to optimum health.
