The Bakuchiol rich formula helps calm and sooth the skin to reduce inflammation and redness.

The photostable serum is suitable for use both day and night.

Inka Omega Oil is rich in Omegas 3, 6 and 9 which are invaluable in retaining the skins barrier and helping prevent moisture loss.

Brand History:

Medik8 is a British, family run business whose founder Elliot Issac is a bio chemist. His sister suffered with Rosacea and he started off on a mission to find ingredients to help treat it and ended up exploring core anti ageing ingredients. The science based brand houses a state of the art, on site lab ISO certified manufacturing facility. 

The aim was to create products that are suited to all skins and ages to use consistently and long term for real results. 

Never wanting to compromise on having to choose between results or experience, the formulas are pleasant to use and all ingredients have a true purpose.  

Medik8 have a simple brand skincare philosophy of including core anti ageing ingredients into your daily routine. They call this CSA.

 

It stands for Vitamin C, Sunscreen and Vitamin A. The regime is to apply Vitamin C in the morning, Sunscreen in the morning and a Vitamin A (retinol/retinal) in the evening. This should be seen as a basic 3 step plan that can be adapted to include various extra steps suited to your skins particular needs. It's a great place to start from if you're new to skincare and looking to start a regime but are overwhelmed with all the advice and choices. 

 

Key benefits of Vitamin C : It's an exceptional anti oxidant helping protect skin from free radicals and external aggressors. Essential in the synthesis of collagen. It disrupts the melanin synthesis pathway resulting in a brighter, glowing complexion whilst it helps to control and lighten pigmentation. 

 

Key benefits of a sunscreen: Wearing a good quality, high SPF facial sunscreen daily is essential. A sunscreen is probably the most powerful anti ageing weapon. Not only does it protect from harmful and ageing UVA and UVB rays (even on a cloudy day 50% of UV rays still reach the skin) but a broad spectrum sunscreen will also protect against infrared rays from the sun, blue light emitted from electrical devices, pollution from the environment and glycation from diet (bad sugars break down collagen). 

 

Key benefits of Vitamin A: Increases collagen synthesis and helps prevent its breakdown which in turn helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Increases cell turnover for smooth, decongested skin surface with less texture. Helps to decrease melanin production for a more even toned and brighter complexion. Reduces sebum production which can help to control and minimise breakouts. Helps with UV repair. Promotes and supports general, overall skin health.
