Medik8 Breakout Defence + Age Repair
How it worksEvery day skin is exposed to free radicals generated from UV rays and pollutants. This can cause a cascade of damage including the breakdown of collagen, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles and inflammation. Free radicals can also oxidise the oils in our pores, creating the perfect environment for blemish-causing bacteria (P. acnes ) to thrive. As a potent antioxidant, Copper PCA shields the skin from free radical attack to help banish blemishes and protect our skin’s collagen. Meanwhile, anti-inflammatory niacinamide helps to soothe angry skin, while beta-glucan and nature’s best botanical extracts back up the skin’s natural defence system.
Copper PCA – A patented and revolutionary ingredient with 40x greater antioxidant performance than vitamin C. This helps to soothe inflammation and protect the skin from future breakouts.
Niacinamide – Otherwise known as vitamin B3, this soothing anti-inflammatory quickly reduces redness and irritation caused by blemishes while strengthening the skin’s protective barrier. It is also able to regulate sebum production to prevent blocked pores.
beta-Glucan – A natural extract derived from oats, beta-glucan enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself while providing immediate comfort to inflamed skin.
Botanical Extracts – Multiple botanical extracts, including ginseng and centella, provide enhanced antioxidant power while softly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
