Protecting your skin as you ages beautifully with Ark SkinCare

I cannot believe I will turn 43 years old in three months. I am getting old but not ashamed of it. Life it too short and enjoy it while it will not last, right?

Having a very sensitive skin is not easy. I admit at 42, I seldom wear cosmetics and worst I do not know how to apply it. I can wear lipstick and am good. I want to make sure that my skin is taking care of. I usually apply lotion all over my body to keep it hydrated. I forget that my face needs to be protected too from the sun.

I noticed that I started to see lines on my face and even gray hair starts to show. I cannot help the gray hair except if I color them maybe someday. I can help with the lines by using Ark Skincare. What I LOVED about these beauty products is? It takes care of specific age or close to your age ranges. I tried the  ARK Hydration Injection Masque and ARK Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer. These skin products are formulated for 30s and 40s.

I used first the Ark Hydration Masque this is for all ages. You can apply it on your face and neck once a week. It is a soothing masque to keep your face and skin feel relaxed after the weekend activities. This is odorless too which is perfect for fragrance allergy like me. It is very easy to apply. All you do is wash your face and apply the masque on your face and neck. Since I am on 40s, I live the masque at least 10 minutes.  If you are teens and twenties: Leave on for approximately 5 minutes. Thirties and forties: Leave on for approximately 10 minutes. Fifties and onwards: Leave on for approximately 20 minutes. You can use it overnight for an intensive treatment. Remove with a hot cloth. Pat dry.

Hyaluronic Acid Booster drenches skin with moisture, providing long-lasting protection against water loss.

My face and skin feels amazing after ten minutes.  I then apply the Ark Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer. It is also odorless. My face feels smooth and not itchy at all.

The cleanser is easy to use as well. All you have to wash your face with lukewarm water. Gently massage cleanser into skin(face and neck I used it). You can rinse and pat dry with a towel. The cleanser washes away dirt, oil and make-up. It gently cleanses without stripping. It does not irritate my sensitive skin. It hydrates and softens.

Oils To Uplift The Mind And Body

If you’ve ever walked into a home and smelled a soothing fragrance, then you might have been smelling essential oils. There are several uplifting essential oils that can soothe the mind and raise the spirits simply by smelling them. Some oils work better than others, so it’s good to know what to look for when selecting a scent.

Peppermint is often one of the stronger scents, but it’s also one of the most calming. You can use the oil in the bathroom while taking a bath to relax the mind after a long day, or you can let the oil waft through the home in the winter as a way to offer a scent for the holiday season.

Lemon is a fragrance that can be combined with other scents to give a refreshing smell while still uplifting the mood. If you’re looking for the ideal combination, then consider blending lavender with lemon. You only need a small amount in an oil burner or a spray bottle to give the desired effects.

Lavender alone can often help in relaxing the mind so that you get a good night’s sleep. You might see lotions and bath products for babies that have lavender in them. They help to calm the baby at night before bed to promote better sleep. If you’re frustrated, then try orange oil. It helps to ease stress while putting the mind at ease, which is something that you might want to try if you work in a stressful job environment or if there are issues that you are dealing with at home.

One of the oils that has a strong scent is spearmint. However, it’s one of the best oils to use if you want to be quickly uplifted during the day. It helps to put the emotions into a better state while giving a boost of energy. This is an oil that can be used by those who play sports or who are active as the scent can give a boost of energy. Rose is a sweet fragrance that is very calming. This is a scent that is sometimes used by women who suffer from PMS on a regular basis as it can help to calm the nerves and balance the hormones.
