Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is often referred to as the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare. When applied to the skin, it is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This increase in retinoic acid visibly plumps and refines the skin for a more youthful looking complexion. Vitamin A can also help promote cell turnover to diminish the appearance of fine lines, winkles and uneven skin tone. Retinol 6TR+ Intense is boosted with climbazole; an exceptional ingredient that enhances the power of retinol by blocking the enzyme that breaks down retinoic acid in the skin. Retinoids are often notorious for being drying and irritating to skin, however Medik8’s Time Release Technology distributes the intelligent formula evenly and slowly throughout the night. This reduces any potential for irritation or redness. The intense serum also uses a high percentage of squalane; an exceptional moisturiser carefully selected to help counteract any dryness caused by retinol.
Supercharge your night-time routine with this lightweight vitamin A serum. Deeply hydrating and easily absorbed, it features an intelligent Time Release system that helps prevent irritation and ensures retinol is evenly distributed across the skin. Upgraded with climbazole to kick-start your anti-ageing results, plus squalane to leave skin hydrated and supple, you will notice a rejuvenated, refined and more youthful-looking complexion.
After cleansing in the evening, massage 4 drops of Retinol 6TR+ Intense across the face, neck and décolletage. Follow with your regular Medik8 moisturiser or facial oil. 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.
