Sun protection for all seasons? Well, if you want to retain youthful looking skin the answer is yes.

ARK has just launched a new SPF 30 Primer which should be used throughout the year and after trialling it for the past three months I can vouch for it’s pure rejuvenating properties. It was used it in conjunction with the brand new Regenerating Skin Defence which harnesses the power of plant stem-cell technology.




The habit of first applying sun protection in mid-December as I battled wind and rain did seem a little odd – but three months later I can see the positive results with plumper-looking, super nourished skin. The SPF 30 Primer also helps protect the skin against pollution so is a must for anyone living in a city.




You also have to remember to apply the Primer over moisturiser but under make-up for maximum results – I also found it helped foundation glide on much easier and left my skin with a fresh glow and helps protect against the dehydrating effects of hot offices or homes.




The key natural ingredients of Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Jojoba, Mimosa and Sunflower fused together to create a delicate, light cream which is suitable for every skin type with the added protection of UVA (age protection) and UVB (burn prevention).

For maximum effects use with Regenerating Skin Defence which helps to repair and regenerate skin cells.




ARK SKINCARE Founder, Shula Starkey says ”We’re all so busy working to make a better, happier life that we stress ourselves out in the process. This can cause premature ageing of the skin, so our formulation helps defend against this.”


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 which 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
