Wake up to beautiful, radiant skin every day with Medik8's exciting new Crystal Retinal 10 serum.
Medik8’s mission is simple - beautiful skin for life - which is why they consistently harness new, youth-boosting breakthroughs to keep your skin stronger for longer with three key technologies: vitamin C, sunscreen and vitamin A. High-end formulations at purse-friendly prices, this attainable range means you don’t need to choose between pounds and performance: the CSA method (C in the morning, followed by sunscreen then vitamin A in the evening) makes beautiful skin über easy – simplifying your daily regime while fast-tracking your path to a healthy complexion. What’s more, the brand is committed to making sustainable changes – from ethical sourcing to minimal waste – so your beauty routine is as clean as your conscience.
This innovative formula contains the maximum concentration of a specialist crystal-encapsulated form of 0.1% Retinaldehyde, which is quicker and easier for the skin to convert into Retinoic Acid, getting to work up to 11 times faster than standard Retinol. It effectively boosts collagen production, smoothes uneven texture and contains natural antibacterial properties to help clear up blemishes. Added hydrators including Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Vitamin E hydrate and repair the skin, while specialist time-release technology ensure skin experiences minimal irritation. In just four weeks, users can expect a brighter, firmer, smoother and more youthful-looking complexion.
Suitable for most skin types, massage a small amount into cleansed skin in the evening twice a week. Follow with a moisturiser for best results. After two weeks, gradually increase usage until it is applied nightly. Always apply a sunscreen during the day when using this product.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
After cleansing in the evening, massage a small amount into the face and neck. Follow with your usual moisturiser. To being with, use twice a week for around two weeks then gradually increase the frequency of application.
The Crystal Retinal 10 is the next step up from the Crystal Retinal 6.
The Crystal Retinal range is ideal for those wanting to step up from standard Retinol but who aren't ready for the r-Retinoate range.
After cleansing in the evening, massage a small amount of Crystal Retinal across the face, neck and décolletage. Allow to absorb before applying your moisturiser.
Crystal Retinal application should be phased in gradually, and only in the evening. Use twice a week for the first two weeks, every other night for the next two weeks, then every night. Always wear sunscreen the following morning while using this product, and for one week after.
Consult a doctor if breastfeeding or pregnant.
If you are new to this product or any of its ingredients, we recommend completing a patch test first.
USE OF RETINOL
When using Retinol for the first time, it is important to allow the skin time to acclimatise to the active ingredient. Apply a small amount in the evening no more than twice a week, never on consecutive evenings, for at least two weeks. If the skin hasn’t suffered any extreme irritation or redness, start to increase the number of applications gradually over a period of weeks until you reach a number your skin is comfortable with. This could range from three nights to seven nights a week.
As Retinol can make the skin sensitive to sunlight, always apply a sunscreen to the skin every morning to prevent sun-induced inflammation and damage.
