It’s this time of year that I change my beauty routine to include a weekly treat of a highly moisturising mask to avoid my skin getting any dryer, as with the harsh Autumn/Winter weather and the central heating my skin really reacts getting even dryer.
A fantastic new product to me is the Hydrating Injection Masque from ARK and as I had really benefited from using the ARK Primer (read my review about it here) for keeping my skin soft as well as creating a perfect base for make-up.
If you are new to ARK it’s all about your skin no matter what your age and the Age Aware Skincare treats all your skincare needs, to get an idea you can select which bracket you fit in and choose products from that range, Age Protect is for your 20’s, Age Defend for your 30-40’s and Age Defy is for 50’s plus, there are some products which suit all ages though and this masque is one of them.
The formula of the hydrating masque is an intense blend of multivitamins to help plump the skin and deliver intense hydration to give the complexion a more youthful and revitalised appearance. The texture of the masque is a gel/cream which has a fresh fragrance and once applied to the face and neck all you have to do is leave it on for up to 20 minutes (depending on if you fall into the Age Defy, Protect or Defend Range) or for a supercharged treatment leave on overnight.
After exfoliating with my Magnitone Barefaced Cleansing Brush and a small amount of my favourite Liz Earle Cleanser (it’s so gentle on my skin, one of my all time favourite cleansers!) I applied the masque all over my face and neck and left it on to work for 15 minutes. Once I removed the masque with a warm cloth my skin felt very soft and smooth right away and I noticed that during the time the masque was left on some of it had soaked into my skin, this is probably due to the fact my skin is so dry at the moment so is soaking up every bit of moisture it can!
Once I toned and moisturised my skin really looked much more hydrated and felt so soft and smooth and even my other half noticed that my skin looked different! The blend of Vitamin A , Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5 and Hyaluronic Acid gives the ultimate treatment to the skin to hydrate, soften and smooth fine lines and wrinkles, an ideal treat for the skin once a week or more if you suffer from very dry skin. For a super quenching skin treat try the masque overnight and in the morning just remove with a warm cloth, I have used this method several times now and my skin feels so nourished and smooth in the morning, a real luxury for dry skin. A lovely mask to use if you are concerned about dry skin or the effects of ageing on your skin.
