THE SCIENCE​​​​​​​​ BEHIND MEDIK8 PRESS & GLOW
Polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) are a new generation of exfoliating acid and we've used them in Press & Glow as they work on the skin's surface without disturbing the delicate layers that lie beneath. Ensuring optimum skin renewal with minimal irritation.​​​​​​​​
-​​​​​​​​
BUT HOW DOES PRESS & GLOW WORK?​​​​​​​​
They work by breaking down the 'glue' that binds dull, dead cells to the surface of the skin. This helps to speed up cellular turnover, while revealing a visibly brighter, smoother complexion with a noticeable difference in weeks

Perfect acid toner!

Experience the power of next generation exfoliating poly hydroxy acids (PHAs) with Press & Glow; the hydrating acid toner that helps to exfoliate the surface of the complexion for noticeable everyday glow. PHA gluconolactone acts as a moisture magnet to help comfort and hydrate the skin, making the surface exfoliation of the skin effortless. A non-drying, non stingy and non-sticky formula, this is the acid toner with all the power and none of the ouch. Press & Glow is a juxtaposition of powerful results and a gentle experience, leaving the skin visibly smooth, evenly-toned with a year-round glow. The addition of prickly pear extract helps to induce a more youthful cell renewal process. Press & Glow works in tune with vitamin A so you can boost your daily glow without sensitising the skin. Glowing skin has never been easier.

KEY BENEFITS
Skin is visibly resurfaced, hydrated and smoothed. Over time, Press & Glow helps to create a perfected skin surface which is not only better at absorbing active ingredients like vitamin C and A, but also creates a better base for makeup. It helps to gently lift the appearance of hyperpigmentation and can brighten the skin surface. The complexion is left visibly glowing, soothed and toned. The overall health of the skin is visibly maximised.

HOW IT WORKS
Balance is key when it comes to exfoliation; overuse of powerful AHAs everyday can often lead to sensitisation of the skin and premature skin ageing due to the skin’s inability to repair itself. PHAs are made up of larger molecules than AHAs and BHAs, meaning they do not penetrate into the skin as deeply and instead exfoliate the surface of the skin. This makes PHAs the perfect match for those even with sensitive skin, who want to achieve true daily exfoliation while keeping the skin barrier healthy. Gluconolactone is a high-performing PHA which breaks down the glue between dead skin cells whilst effortlessly hydrating the skin due to its humectant (water-loving) properties, ensuring the skin remains cool and comfortable after use. It breaks down the bonds between dead skin cells allowing them to shed off with ease, restoring both texture and tone; unveiling that enviable skin glow. Gluconolactone is clinically proven to work perfectly in partnership with vitamin A[1], as it can aid the absorption of vitamin A and get the gold-standard anti-ageing ingredient to exactly where it is needed in the skin. Press & Glow also harnesses the powers of prickly pear extract which helps to boost the activity of natural exfoliation enzymes, allowing the skin exfoliation cycle to return to a more youthful pace. This again works well in conjunction with vitamin A for all round skin rejuvenation. While the enzymes help to restore the natural exfoliation in the upper layers of the skin, vitamin A helps to boost skin rejuvenation from the lower layers of the epidermis. Aloe vera and acai extract use their calming properties to visibly take down inflammation and irritation, whilst hydrating the skin. [1] B.

Twist the top half of the pump anti-clockwise until it clicks to activate. After cleansing in the morning and evening, hold a reusable cotton pad firmly over Press & Glow and push down 3-4 times. Sweep the pad over the complexion, avoiding the delicate eye area. Twist the pump clockwise until it clicks to avoid leakage. Always do a patch test before first use.
TIP:
MYTH-BUSTING ⚠️ Can I use exfoliating acids and vitamin A in the summer?
-
ANSWER: YES
In short, direct acids like Press & Glow and retinoids like our Crystal Retinal and Intelligent Retinol are completely safe to use in the summertime...as long as you're applying and reapplying ample sunscreen
-
We always strongly recommend applying ¼ tablespoon amount of sunscreen, or more, as the final step in your regime. This is especially important when using exfoliating ingredients as they can make skin more sensitive to sun damage. Don't forget to reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours
