Medik8 Surface Radiance Cleanse 40ml: A dual-action cleanser, Surface Radiance Cleanse uses both AHA and BHA power to gently break down impurities and slough off dead skin. AHAs L-mandelic acid and lactic acid, work on the upper layers of the skin to free dead skin cells so they can be easily exfoliated away. Salicylic acid, a BHA, penetrates deeper into the pores to help break down blockages which can lead to enlarged pores and blemishes. By gently exfoliating the upper layers of the skin, the skin cell renewal cycle is supercharged, leaving a fresher, clearer complexion. This also helps to soften the appearance of wrinkles, while glycerin hydrates and replenishes skin to minimise fine lines. Mangosteen peel extract provides superior antioxidant power to protect the skin from harmful free radicals, while infusing an revitalising citrus scent.
Medik8 Clarity Peptides 30ml: Medik8 Clarity Peptides is a non-sticky, lightweight, milky serum. It infuses the complexion with 10% niacinamide; skincare’s very best anti-inflammatory active to help combat blemishes. Also, able to stimulate ceramide synthesis, niacinamide boosts your skin’s natural dew for a subtle sheen ideal for under make-up. Niacinamide also helps to reduce any hyperpigmentation responsible for uneven skin tone.
Next-generation Crystalide peptide promotes your skin’s natural reflectance. It targets the natural protein α-crystallin which is responsible for minimising cell waste which can cause a cloudy complexion. In conjunction with softly polishing the skin, Crystalide peptide smooths over the complexion leaving a beautifully translucent, ultra-smooth finish. The perfect base for make-up. The dewy glow is maximised through collagen stimulation thanks to ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid, while zinc PCA tackles blemish-causing bacteria for a flawless complexion.
Medik8 Sleep Glycolic 30ml: Sleep Glycolic is the Medik8 approach to at-home glycolic acid. The smallest of the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), glycolic acid can penetrate the deepest into the skin. As a result, glycolic acid can address more stubborn skin concerns such as uneven texture and a lacklustre complexion. High strength at-home glycolic acid products (most commonly daily toners) are readily available and are often directed for regular, everyday use. This has the potential to cause irritation, and an impairment to the skin barrier. That’s why at Medik8 we believe that occasional use of glycolic acid is best - not daily. Leave daily acids to super-gentle PHAs (polyhydroxy acids, found in Press & Glow). Instead, Sleep Glycolic takes an innovative approach to at-home glycolic acid, harnessing the powerful exfoliating effects of glycolic acid in a bi-weekly treatment without the downsides. Glycolic acid is encapsulated in a crystal cyclodextrin ‘shell’ that is slowly broken down upon contact with skin enzymes. The encapsulation gradually delivers the high strength exfoliating acid into the skin overnight to reduce the potential for irritation. With a total 10% free active acid, the glycolic acid is able to easily penetrate into the skin, improving the end results. This is ultimate glycolic power, without the downsides.
