HOW IT WORKS
Vitamin A can also boost the regenerative cycle of skin cells and hinder the formation of excess melanin to leave skin looking smooth and even-toned.
Time Release Technology distributes the intelligent formula continuously throughout the night, slowing down vitamin A absorption for reduced irritation.
Vitamin A is used in combination with vitamin E, an oil-soluble antioxidant that helps to protect delicate skin from external free radical damage, while stabilising vitamin A for a highly potent, long-lasting formula.
HOW TO USE
2. Follow with your regular Medik8 moisturiser or facial oil.
3. Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night. Consult a doctor if breastfeeding or pregnant.
4. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
Vitamin E An oil-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E can quench free radicals on the skin while stabilising retinol for optimal power. KEY INGREDIENTS IN INTELLIGENT RETINOL (PREVIOUSLY CALLED RETINOL INTENSE) UPGRADES
