ARK Derriere Facial




I recently visited ARK Skincare's flagship salon in Putney to try out their new 'Derriere Facial'. Yes, thats a facial for your bottom - which has become the latest beauty craze in the US! ARK Skincare is renowned for its signature 'Cleavage Facial' and due to client demand for a treatment to clarify and firm the bottom have introduced a 'Derriere Facial' to get your bum ready for the beach.

I was given paper knickers to wear and I felt totally comfortable as I was wrapped up in towels and blankets during the treatment. The therapist only works on one area at a time rather than leaving you fully exposed. The treatment beds are super comfortable complete with an arm rest. 

The ARK Derriere Facial began with a foot cleanse and then body brushing over my legs, thighs and bottom to boost circulation and help diminish the look of cellulite. 

A treatment cleanser is then worked into the skin to purify and restore skin’s optimal moisture balance. The skin is smoothed and clarified with the ARK Invigorating Body Scrub, which contains natural loofah, fruit acids and invigorating menthol to lift away dead skin cells and unblock pores.

After steaming the skin, the bottom and legs are expertly massaged with a blend of SkinResponse Serums to lift, firm and purify the skin. The bottom is then treated to a skin clearing or firming masque, while the feet are pampered with a heavenly aromatherapy massage. 

The treatment was finished with application of a skin smoothing Nourishing Body Lotion to leave skin plump, soft and radiant. This innovative treatment can be tailored to target specific skin concerns such as spots, uneven skin tone, cellulite and loss of elasticity. Afterwards, I was not rushed and was told to take my time to relax and drink peppermint tea. 

I found the treatment to be so relaxing I almost fell asleep and my skin has never felt so soft - often we neglect the bottom and thigh area! For total beach body confidence, the ARK Derriere Facial is the perfect pre-holiday pamper treat to give you the courage to wear that Brazilian thong bikini this Summer. I just need to book a holiday now!

The ARK Derriere Facial costs £49 for a 45 minute treatment and is available at the ARK Flagship Salon in Putney.
