In need of a pick me up or feel like indulging in a little bit of self care? In this post, we focus on two of ARK Skincare’s popular Skin Perfector treatments and how their powerhouse ingredients work to provide amazing results for your skin.
We also share a selection of independent reviews from customers and brilliant quotes from the press.
If you’re looking for a product to give your skin the ultimate refresh, this is the one for you. Our luxurious facial exfoliator gently buffs away dead skin cells, dirt and grime from the surface, revealing a brighter, more luminous complexion. This triple action formula combines three types of exfoliant action - physical, fruit acid and enzymatic. It is also free from harmful plastic micro-beads which cause plastic particle water pollution. Instead, we use bamboo particles which are not only much better for the environment, but also help to strengthen skin cells and work as an anti-inflammatory.
The Bamboo micro-particles thoroughly slough through dead skin and impurities from the skin's surface, helping to clear pores and create a flawless, polished texture.
Our exfoliator contains a blend of 5 botanical extracts: Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Sugar Maple, Orange and Lemon. These contain naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHAs) which increase cell renewal, helping to encourage a youthful complexion by minimising fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin Regenerating Enzyme
Dissolves desmosomes (adhesive proteins that can cause dead cells to build up on your skin), to release dead skin cells, fade pigmentation and improve nutrient absorption.
This powerful antioxidant helps to protect skin against free radical and environmental damage from harmful UV rays.
How to Use:
Use once or twice a week. Apply to a dampened face and neck after cleansing.
Wet hands and massage gently into the skin using circular motions. Leave on for the times suggested below, depending on your skin’s age related needs.
Teens and twenties: Wash off after massaging in.
Thirties and forties: Leave on for approximately 2 minutes.
Fifties and onwards: Leave on for approximately 5 minutes.
Remove with a cloth soaked in hand hot water. (Please note this product will not simply rinse off, it does need to be removed with a warm cloth.)
