The most advanced anti-aging formula in the Medik8 range, the new r-Retinoate Youth Activating Cream Intense is a sumptuous problem-solving all-in-one night cream.
Using a revolutionary blend of Retinyl Retinoate and crystal-stabilised Retinaldehyde suspended within a pool of silk cashmere, this intensive treatment works to retexturise and brighten the skin from the very first application. These two powerhouse ingredients have never been paired together before in the same formulation, making this one of the most effective anti-aging creams on the market. Added Ceramides condition and support the skin while drone-targeted Copper Peptides stimulate collagen production deep beneath the surface. To minimise dryness and sensitivity, this cream also contains Hyaluronic Acid, Squalane and Vitamin E. With continued use, skin becomes more even in tone, firmer, smoother and looks more youthful.
Suitable for most skin types, massage a small amount into cleansed skin in the evening for best results. Start off by applying it twice a week before gradually increasing the frequency of application depending on skin’s tolerance.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Massage a small amount into cleansed skin on the face and neck in the evening. For best results, phase this product in gradually by applying twice a week for the first two weeks, every other night for two weeks and then every night, depending on skin's tolerance.
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.
