Product Focus: ARK Skincare's Skin Essential Pre-cleanse & Make-Up Remover

At ARK Skincare, we are passionate about double-cleansing. We believe that a good cleanser and a good cleansing routine are two essential ingredients for healthy-looking and feeling skin. 

In this post we are focus on our Skin Essential Pre-Cleanser & Make-up Remover and why keeping your skin clean is so important. 

What is double cleansing?

Double cleansing is a two-step process to remove any make-up and bacteria and deeply cleanse the skin. 

Why do I need to double cleanse?

You might be asking yourself if you really need to cleanse twice and the answer is yes! Whether you wear make-up or not, a double cleanse is essential for healthy skin. The first cleanse will remove any traces of dirt, pollution and airborne bacteria from the surface of your skin and the second cleanse will clean deeper into your pores.

By practising this routine you will be safe in the knowledge that your skin is nice and clean. If dirt and bacteria aren’t washed away, they can linger on your skin and contribute to early ageing, pigmentation and breakouts.

In addition to removing build-up, other benefits of keeping your skin clean are that it can help to prevent blemishes and even boost hydration. It’s very important to start with a clean base before applying any other products, the actives in your serum and moisturiser will not be as effective if they sit on layer of grime and dead skin cells.

Key Ingredients:

Margosa Leaf Extract - this powerhouse ingredient offers many wonderful benefits. It is used as an antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral. It can also help to prevent acne and infection. 

Vitamin E - Fantastic for skin; it protects against environmental pollution and UV radiation, quenches skin with moisture, calms and soothes, and helps with wound and scar healing.

Apply onto dry skin with dry hands and massage gently over the face. Add warm water to turn the oil into a liquid emulsion and continue to massage into the skin before rinsing off with water. Then follow up with your age intelligent cleanser and moisturiser to lock in hydration.

Priceless Life Of Mine - 'ARK Skincare, beautiful skin at any age'

Steph from 'Priceless Life of Mine' wrote a blog post featuring our Age Defy range and Pre Cleanse & Make-Up Remover.

"I've been double cleansing for a while now as I like to remove every trace of make up first and then go back in to do a second cleanse. The pre cleanse & make up remover is amazing. I've been raving about it on Instagram as it really does melt any make up away, even waterproof mascara. It's a multi fruit lipid blend with omegas 3,6, and 9 and it's gentle on the skin. I probably will buy this when this one runs out. "
"For my second cleanse I've been using their Age Defy brightening cleanser and thumbs up for this one too. It's quite a light, creamy cleanser, but effective, my skin feels squeaky clean afterwards. It's packed with a combination of vitamins, antioxidants and lipids. It also has red algae and vitamin c which help to brighten the complexion, and it definitely does."
"The moisturiser is lovely. It's quite a rich texture but it glides on and sinks in beautifully. It leaves my skin feeling plumper and nourished which is what we need as our skin changes quite dramatically in our 40's and 50's. I've not been using it with any of my own serums as I wanted to see what this was like without it but I think I definitely need something more for me personally, and I'll start adding in my extra hyaluronic acid as I do have quite dehydrated skin a lot of the time. It may be that this alone offers enough hydration for someone else, depends on your skins needs. Mines very thirsty!!!"
"I love that the range is so versatile, in that it's not just one size fits all, it's age specific and I think that's so important when there's much choice of quality skincare out there right now."
