Medik8 Skincare Routine - Focus Acne Products and Treatments

Posted on May 05 2018

All blemishes, from whiteheads to blackheads, are caused by three contributing factors: the overproduction of sebum, the accumulation of dead skin cells and the build-up of specific strains of bacteria. Through years of extensive research and development, Medik8 has created a comprehensive skincare system that effectively targets all three factors to prevent breakouts whilst nurturing inflamed, irritated skin to its optimum state of health. With continued use, blemishes are diminished, the healing process is accelerated and post-inflammatory scarring (hyperpigmentation) is reduced. All of which is achieved without compromising the skin’s delicate lipid barriers.

Medik8 beta Cleanse™ Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser A targeted foam cleanser that effectively combats the three precursors of problem skin to tackle existing blemishes as well as preventing future breakouts. The advanced formula is comprised of L-mandelic acid for its regulatory effect on sebum production; salicylic acid for its ability to effectively exfoliate the surface of the skin whilst clearing build-up from the inside of the pore; and tea tree oil for its antibacterial properties. Skin is left clean and fresh, and over time overall tone and texture is significantly improved. pH balanced to protect the skin’s natural lipid barrier

Medik8 Pore Refining Scrub™ Dual-Action Exfoliator A resurfacing facial scrub that combines the power of chemical and mechanical exfoliants to maximise the removal of dead skin cells. The refining formula contains L-mandelic acid, a gentle AHA that efficiently renews without irritation; a powerful combination of additional hydroxy acids to loosen dull skin cells; and natural jojoba beads to wash away deep-seated dirt and oil. The combined action promotes the natural renewal of healthy skin cells, revealing a radiant, revitalised complexion. Blend Pore Refining Scrub™ with your favourite shower gel to create an invigorating exfoliation treatment for your whole body.

Medik8 clayMask™ Pore Refining Mask A purifying mask that uses thin, natural clays and soothing botanicals to draw out impurities, absorb excess oil and prevent pores from clogging. Featuring infusions of vitamin E, cranberry fruit and willow bark, this refining treatment corrects and soothes problematic skin whilst delivering a potent complex of antioxidants deep within the skin. clayMask™ also contains passionflower extract to promote cell rejuvenation and accelerated anti-ageing. After rinsing, skin is left instantly brighter and pores are visibly reduced. Delivering an instant glow, clayMask™ is the perfect pick-me-up before a big event or special occasion.

Medik8 Blemish Control Pads™ Alcohol-Free Blemish Treatment An efficacious blemish treatment that’s tough on breakouts whilst being gentle on the skin. Pre-soaked with 2% maximum strength salicylic acid, Blemish Control Pads™ exfoliate the surface of the skin as well as delivering the treatment deep within the pore to dissolve unwanted oil and dirt. Formulated without the use of alcohol, they eliminate the risk of further dryness and irritation while promoting clearer skin and preventing future breakouts. Ideal for use on the face, back, neck and arms. Formulated with 2% salicylic acid, the highest concentration currently available without a prescription.

Medik8 blemish AOX™ Oil-free Antioxidant Gel A powerful, advanced and stable antioxidant system delivered in a lightweight, oil-free serum. Infused with patented copper PCA, a revolutionary ingredient that boasts unprecedented antioxidant performance, it significantly reduces free radical destruction, including the oxidative sebum damage that causes acne bacteria to thrive. Ever the multi-tasker, it also helps to reduce the appearance of breakouts and scarring whilst combating the visible signs of ageing. Over time skin is clear, radiant and youthful. We are proud to have pioneered and patented the use of copper PCA in the field of skincare

Medik8 beta Gel™ Blemish Gel Designed for use on individual blemishes, beta Gel™ is an intensive on-the-spot treatment that forms a protective barrier over pimples to prevent further bacterial infection. A fusion of spot-fighting actives, it features salicylic acid to gently slough away dead surface skin and dioic acid to inhibit the growth of bacteria without creating an antibiotic resistance. It can also be used to resurface ingrown hairs post-epilation. “I’ve been using beta Gel™ for over a year now and the frequency of my breakouts has dramatically reduced. Plus, when I do happen to have spots, they disappear within a couple of days!” Sandra, Medik8 customer.

Medik8 beta Moisturise™ Skin Balancing Mattifying Moisturiser An optimised combination of active ingredients to provide continuous hydration and anti-inflammatory benefits whilst controlling shine and oil production. The dualaction formula contains both pre and probiotics to promote the development of good bacteria, thereby inhibiting the production of blemish-causing bacteria and consequently reducing breakouts. Over time, complexion is clearer, sebum levels are regulated and defences are boosted to prevent future breakouts. With a long-lasting mattifying effect, beta Moisturise™ serves as the perfect base for liquid and powder makeup application
