Medik8 are always researching and improving their products to be able to give clients the best possible results. There is never a better time to treat the skin than while we sleep. The skin repairs and regenerates so Medik8 have formulated this exciting new product to target the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and help to decongest the skin to minimise the appearance of blemishes all while we sleep.
Introducing Sleep Glycolic
An overnight at-home peel with true 10% encapsulated glycolic acid which is slowly delivered into the skin overnight, to fade the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and help to decongest the skin to minimise the appearance of blemishes.
What are the key actives?
10% GLYCOLIC ACID- A powerful AHA, glycolic acid helps to visibly resurface and exfoliate the outermost layers of skin, to leave a brighter and clearer complexion. By lowering the pH of our formula to 3.5, we have been able to achieve a true free, active acid value of 10%.
TIME RELEASE TECHNOLOGY- Cyclodextrin encapsulates glycolic acid. When applied topically, the encapsulation is broken down by skin enzymes, allowing the glycolic acid to be slowly released into the skin, minimising irritation.
OPTIMISED PROTECT & REPAIR- Korean clover extract works alongside the glycolic acid by supporting the skin's natural overnight repair and hydration process. It can help to maintain the natural skin barrier; leaving skin brighter, healthier and in sync.
GLYCERIN- A natural humectant, glycerin helps to draw water into the skin, leaving the complexion hydrated, supple and visibly smoothed.
What are the benefits?
Sleep Glycolic delivers fast resurfacing results. The glycolic acid formula helps to slough off dead skin cells to reveal a visibly glowing complexion. The at-home peel effortlessly smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while restoring the skin’s natural luminosity as you sleep. The encapsulated glycolic acid is time-released into the skin overnight, to gently deliver the high acid concentration.
Who is it suited for?
It is suited for anyone who would like to target advanced signs of skin ageing or skin concerns. Looking for instant brightening and decongesting results then this would be perfect. Or looking to prep skin before an event. Suited to all skins except sensitive skin types.
How to use:
Apply pea-size amount to face, neck, décolleté. 2-3 times per week.
If you use the Medik8 CSA philosophy: After cleansing in the evening, apply before vitamin A and follow with a night time moisturiser. Always use SPF the morning after, as glycolic acid can make skin more sensitive to the sun. Use 2-3 times a week.
