Your Guide to Medik8's Vitamin C Range

We are all aware of the benefits Vitamin C can provide once you incorporate it into your skincare regime:

  • Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, particularly effective in protecting skin cells from UV exposure
  • Vitamin C promotes collagen production to reduce fine lines.
  • Vitamin C causes an anti-inflammatory response in the skin, preventing redness and inflammation
  • Vitamin C has a positive effect on reducing hyperpigmentation
  • Vitamin C improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin by strengthening the skin's ability to repair

Medik8 Vitamin C Serums - C-Tetra Intense and C-Tetra Eye

Vitamin C is also one of the pillars of the Medik8's philosophy, called CSA.

CSA stands for: Vitamin C in the morning + Sunscreen for the day + Vitamin A for the night.


How the Medik8 Philosophy works

Vitamin C - As a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C fights a wide range of free radicals to help prevent fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots and uneven pigmentation. At the same time, the potent vitamin visibly plumps and firms the complexion while amplifying luminosity.

Sunscreen - Up to 80% of skin ageing can be caused by sun exposure. UVB rays target the upper layers of the skin, causing sunburn; while UVA rays penetrate deeper, damage collagen, and create harmful free radicals that cause premature skin ageing. No anti-ageing skincare routine is complete without a high-strength sunscreen applied liberally every day, to shield your delicate skin from the effects of the sun's rays.

Vitamin A - Highly regarded by dermatologists and skin therapists alike, Vitamin A is second to none when it comes to improving visible signs of ageing. As the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare, Vitamin A can resurface the skin's texture, combat fine lines and wrinkles and promote a luminous, more even-toned complexion.
