Surface Radiance Cleanse
Restore radiance and fight visible signs of ageing with C-Tetra. Utilising the antioxidant power of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (stabilised vitamin C) and vitamin E, the hydrating serum visibly brightens and smooths the complexion, while fighting free radicals to reduce visible signs of ageing.
Advanced Day Total Protect
This lightweight day cream boasts a range of protective technologies and helps to replenish skin’s hydration levels to promote a supple and youthful appearance. With SPF 30 5* UVA protection, this daily moisturiser is lightweight and perfect for wear under makeup.
Intelligent Retinol 3TR
Designed to complement skin’s nightly regenerative cycle, Intelligent Retinol 3TR helps to resurface skin while you sleep to rejuvenate and restore visible radiance. Formulated with Time Release Technology, retinol is delivered gradually into the skin throughout the night to ensure maximum results and minimum irritation.
How It Works
Surface Radiance Cleanse is infused with both AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) chemical exfoliators, to gently break down impurities and pore blockages across the complexion, deeply cleansing skin while sloughing off dead skin cells on the skin surface. The result? A visibly renewed, purified complexion with a brightened appearance.
C-Tetra is carefully crafted with tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a stabilised, gentle yet effective form of vitamin C. It works in synergy with vitamin E to boost the antioxidant defence levels in the skin, to protect from free radical attack during the day and promote a more radiant appearance. A multi-tasker, C-Tetra can also help to stimulate collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Advanced Day Total Protect is a lightweight, 5* UVA SPF 30 moisturiser. With 360 degree environmental protection and modern, advanced sunscreen filters, the invisible sunscreen works to shield skin against premature ageing caused by the sun and all aspects of the environment. Including a pollution shield, anti-infrared, anti-blue light and anti-A.G.E. technology, all combined in one hydrating daily cream.
Intelligent Retinol 3TR is formulated with retinol, well known as the classic form of vitamin A. When applied to the skin, retinol is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that instructs skin cells to produce proteins such as collagen and elastin. This increase in collagen levels within the skin promotes a visibly plump, youthful complexion. Vitamin A also helps to increase the rate of skin cell regeneration, for a smoother, more evenly toned appearance. Time Release Technology slowly delivers the intelligent formula continuously throughout the night, preserving the benefits and reducing any irritation potential.
How To Use
Surface Radiance Cleanse
Start your anti-ageing skincare ritual by cleansing with Surface Radiance Cleanse both morning and night. Massage into moistened face and neck. For sensitive or dry skin, use once a day or whenever a deeper cleanse is required. Gently remove by splashing with water and pat face dry.
After cleansing in the morning, massage 6 drops of C-Tetra across the face, neck and décolletage. Leave to absorb before applying moisturiser.
Advanced Day Total Protect
Follow with Advanced Day Total Protect. Apply a liberal amount to face, neck and décolletage. Use light, upward strokes and allow to absorb. Reapply throughout the day as needed.
Intelligent Retinol 3TR
After cleansing in the evening, massage 4 drops of Intelligent Retinol 3TR across the face, neck and décolletage.
Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
Exfoliating Acids (Surface Radiance Cleanse)
AHAs l-mandelic acid and l-lactic acid softly exfoliate the skin, while deeply hydrating for a nourished complexion. Mandelic acid, in particular, is able to work on both the surface of the skin and within pores for a thorough yet gentle cleanse. BHA salicylic acid can decongest and exfoliate from within the pore, helping to minimise the appearance of enlarged pores and blemishes.
A lipid-soluble form of vitamin C that provides exceptional antioxidant protection from harmful free radicals, while helping to stimulate collagen production for a youthful-looking complexion.
Superior UV Filters (Advanced Day Total Protect)
A complex of sun filters carefully selected for their longevity, gentleness and power to protect the skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
The classic form of vitamin A, retinol helps to enhance collagen levels and boost the skin’s natural regenerative cycle, leaving skin looking even-toned and youthful.Full Ingredients
