The Night Ritual Vitamin A cream from Medik8 is the perfect introduction to Vitamin A for first-time users or those experiencing the very early signs of ageing.
This luxurious night cream now contains a mild 0.2% concentration of encapsulated Retinol, which is released gradually into the skin over a period of hours, therefore improving its penetration while minimising the possibility of irritation. New ingredient Dragonfruit Extract provides vital antioxidant benefits and skin rejuvenation, while Vitamin E nourishes and minimises inflammation. With continued use, this overnight moisturiser promises to soften the appearance of fine lines, uneven tone and texture, while revitalising the surface to erase signs of dullness and fatigue.
Suitable for all skin types, apply a small amount to clean skin on the face and neck in the evening twice a week for two weeks until the skin has acclimatised to the Retinol content. Gradually increase usage until it is used nightly for best results.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Start by using twice a week in the evening, for around two weeks, to give the skin time to acclimatise to the Retinol content. After this time, increase usage to every other night for another two weeks then gradually increase to nightly use.
Avoid the delicate eye area. Not to be used in conjunction with other Retinol products, except the Retinol Eye TR.
Always remember to apply a sunscreen during the day when using a Retinol-based product at night.
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.
