Best Of British Beauty - ARK Skincare
With all the doom and gloom surrounding the worldwide economy, there has never been a better time to support local businesses in the UK and buy British!
Alan Sugar himself was recently featured in the media calling for the ‘UK to think UK when buying’ and British buying has become increasingly more important for the UK economy, because supporting our home companies creates jobs for the unemployed and is vital for small businesses; which employ 13 million people and generate half of the country’s wealth. Buying British is about supporting our own economy, encouraging home-grown talent, and celebrating what the UK has to offer.
When it comes to buying your British Beauty Essentials there are plenty of products to chose from, but if you’re looking for a serious skincare brand that offers an array of gorgeous products, look no further than ARK who have over the last 11 years established themselves as South West London’s leading skin care and wellbeing centres. With branches in Wimbledon, Putney, and Fulham Ark’s success lies in the hands of it’s founder, Shula Starkey who works closely with her team of therapists to make sure clients not only receive amazing, beneficial treatments but leave with a sense of wellness and inspiration.
Over the past 11 years, Shula Starkey’s therapist teams at ARK skin care centre’s have performed over 100,000 treatments and together they have become experts in understanding and responding to their clients’ skincare needs.
As well as offering fantastic treatments, in 2009 ARK launched an exclusive range of skincare solutions called ARK Age Aware Skincare and the product range has most recently expanded its retail distribution in to selected House of Fraser stores.
About ARK Age Aware Skincare
Developed over 5 years of research, ARK Age Aware Skincare is the result of collaboration with Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed, a Naturopathic doctor and leading expert in preventative health and nutrition. There are two main skin transition periods in the ageing process where there is a dramatic shift in hormone production and a significant change in the way the body functions; late 20s to early 30s and late 50s to early 60s. By looking at these transition periods, ARK has divided its skin therapy into three age appropriate product lines:
Age Prepare (late teens to early 30s)
Age Maintain (mid 30s to 50)
Age Repair (50 and beyond)
ARK Age Aware Skincare comprises 41 face and body products in total including four core products for each age range; a cleanser, moisturiser, exfoliator and masque – the fundamentals for a good regular skincare regime, - alongside an innovative range of 8 therapeutic SkinResponse Serums, 12 Naturopathic Skin Supplements to treat specific skin conditions, and 9 nourishing Supporting Skincare products
Hero products include:
Lip Plumping Balm
Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream
