Medik8 Press & Glow 200ml

You’ve got your AHAs on lock, and your BHA loaded and ready to go. Have you considered PHAs?
What’s a PHA, we hear you cry?
Pretty Hydrating Acid – true, but not the one.
Perfectly happy acid-mantle? Accurate, but not what we mean.
(free from) Phthalates, Hydroquinone + Alcohol – also true, also not correct.
PHA = poly hydroxy acids, AKA your new active skincare regimen bestie. Designed to be used in conjunction with your actives (including Vitamin A and C!) this little baby will enhance the absorption of the rest of your routine, while also smoothing and soothing the surface of your skin, boosting glow, promoting the cell renewal process and hydrating the skin. It’s a leave-on exfoliant, but non-drying, non-stingy and non-sticky.
That’s a PHA (Pretty Handy Acid) if you ask us.

What are the hero ingredients of Medik8 Press & Glow™?

  • 5.5% Gluconolactone – A high-performing, water-soluble PHA, gluconolactone converts into gluconic acid to gently exfoliate and hydrate the skin, resulting in a visibly more even, smoother skin surface.
  • Prickly Pear Extract – a natural enzyme activator, it helps to increase the rate of desquamation of the skin, and then the rate of cell renewal. A global anti-ageing ingredient, this helps to improve the clarity and luminosity of skin, as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Aloe Vera – helps to promote the skin’s moisture retention, reduces the look of redness and helps prevent free radical damage.
  • Acai Extract- works to assist in reducing redness, and a powerful antioxidant which helps fight against free radical damage from environmental aggressors.
