Best known for their impressive antioxidants and Retinol-packed products, Medik8 has quickly become the go-to range for anyone who wants results-driven skincare, even those with the most sensitive skin. If you want flawless skin for life, here’s how to build a routine with Medik8.
Start The Day Right
Begin your day by ridding the skin of impurities with the Micellar Mousse, the perfect cleanser to wake up the skin and prep it for further treatments, without leaving it tight or dry. This gentle, cashmere-soft product infuses the skin with anti-pollution technology to purify and combat daily environmental damage while essential hydrators work to keep the skin plump and supple.
Next, refresh the skin with the Pore Minimising Tonic, the perfect post-cleansing solution for enlarged pores. Its formula of Mandelic and Lactic Acids flush out deep set, stubborn oils and impurities while working to reduce the number of dead cells on the surface, providing a radiant and rejuvenated complexion. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin and antioxidant Alpha-Lipoic Acid which protects against irritants and stressors throughout the day.
Infuse the skin with a combination of key antioxidants with the best-selling C-Tetra Serum, which provides an impressive level of protection against free radicals and environmental damage. It also helps to brighten uneven tone and stimulate collagen production within the lower layers for a more youthful complexion.
Hydrate and protect in one step after applying your serum with the White Balance Everyday Protect. This ultra-sheer moisturiser not only hydrates the skin but also contains UV filters to provide SPF50 while Vitamin C and Niacinamide protect against other environmental damage. The patented key ingredient Oxyresveratrol (Oxy-R) helps to reduce pigmentation and, with continued use, this lightweight, multitasking moisturiser will brighten dull spots and restore a youthful radiance to the skin.
We can sometimes neglect our lips but caring for them should be an important part of any skincare routine. The Mutiny Lip Balm instantly feeds the lips with essential nourishment which visibly repairs and restores chapped and damaged skin. It coats the lips in replenishing Squalene and Hyaluronic Acid to help retain long lasting moisture to leave your pout feeling soft, supple and protected.
Take The Day Off
If you wear make-up during the day, or just want a deeper cleanse, do the double by partnering the Micellar Mousse with the Lipid-Balancing Cleansing Oil. This cleansing oil has an ultra-gentle formula which melts away waterproof make-up and stubborn impurities, plus it’s packed with essential lipids to replenish and Vitamin E and Safflower Oil to hydrate, to maintain a plump and supple complexion.
For a once a week treatment to gently buff away dead cells, try the Pore Refining Scrub, which is formulated with a blend of Jojoba Micro-Exfoliators, decongesting BHAs and mild AHAs to smooth the appearance of large pores and soften the skin.
With the Retinol 3TR serum, you can target signs of ageing as you get some well deserved rest. It has been specifically designed to work with the skin’s nightly regeneration cycle and contains time-release Retinol which slowly releases into the skin during the night, which means you can wake up to a transformed complexion.
Our eyes are the first feature to show signs of fatigue or lack of sleep, so by applying the r-Retinoate Day & Night Eye Serum before bed, you will wake up looking brighter and well-rested. With Retinyl Retinoate, an active which is eight times more powerful than standard Retinol, this gentle serum softens fine lines and discolouration while Vitamin E provides antioxidant benefits. After four weeks, you can expect the eye contour to appear rejuvenated, smooth and more awake.
End the night with the rich and indulgent Advanced Night Restore cream which provides much needed hydration while botanical extracts tackle the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Ceramides and a specialist Night Repair Complex provide intense nourishment and radiance to give a whole new meaning to the term ‘beauty sleep’.
