Wake up to beautiful skin every day with Medik8’s exciting new Crystal Retinal 6.
This innovative serum-cream contains a specialist crystal-encapsulated form of 0.06% Retinaldehyde, which is quicker and easier for the skin to convert into Retinoic Acid, getting to work up to 11 times faster than standard Retinol. It effectively boosts collagen production, smoothes uneven texture and contains natural antibacterial properties to help clear up blemishes. Added Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E hydrate and repair the skin respectively, while specialist time-release technology ensure skin experiences minimal irritation. In just four weeks, users can expect a brighter, firmer and more youthful-looking complexion.
Suitable for most skin types, massage a small amount into cleansed skin in the evening twice a week. Follow with a moisturiser for best results. After two weeks, gradually increase usage until it is applied nightly. Always apply a sunscreen during the day when using this product.
After cleansing in the evening, massage a small amount into the face and neck. Follow with your usual moisturiser. To being with, use twice a week for around two weeks then gradually increase the frequency of application.
The Crystal Retinal range is ideal for those wanting to step up from standard Retinol but who aren’t ready for the r-Retinoate range.
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.
