Medik8 C-Tetra Cream
The perfect introduction to anti-ageing skincare, C-Tetra Cream shields skin from free radical damage and restores radiance. Hyaluronic acid and glycerin leave skin supple and hydrated, while also supporting skin’s natural barrier. This deeply hydrating yet lightweight cream includes natural citrus extracts which give it an uplifting scent, making it the perfect way to start your morning.
How it worksYour skin is packed full of natural antioxidants that defend against free radicals from the environment. When these environmental free radicals outweigh your skin’s antioxidants, the skin can no longer protect itself. Free radicals latch onto the defenceless skin cells, causing irreparable damage, which ultimately leads to premature ageing. C-Tetra Cream contains tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a super-stable form of vitamin C that boosts the antioxidant defence levels in the skin. Ever the multi-tasker, it also stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the complexion plump, radiant and youthful. As a lipid-soluble form of vitamin C, it is able to penetrate the skin’s defensive lipid barrier with ease, delivering benefits deep within the skin. Vitamin C and vitamin E work together synergistically as 'network antioxidants', boosting the cream’s overall antioxidant effect. C-Tetra Cream also harnesses superior hydration power by combining hyaluronic acid and glycerin with Medik8’s signature Moisture Magnets™. These draw water from the atmosphere and from lower layers of the skin to leave the complexion supple and moisturised.
