Medik8 Pore Minimising Tonic
Advanced texture refiner that utilises AHA’s to control oil production and decongest the skin; allowing pores to shrink back to their original size. With a natural spearmint fragrance, the twice daily tonic is a long-lasting solution to enlarged pores. Skin feels hydrated thanks to water-loving hyaluronic acid while also looking smooth, refined and visibly more youthful.
HOW IT WORKSExfoliation is absolutely vital for a youthful-looking, clear and visibly pore-free complexion. Pore Minimising Tonic™ harnesses the power of not 1, but 2 exceptional exfoliating acids to clear out debris from pores. When pore blockages occur from mixtures of sebum and dead skin cells they can often stretch out the pores, leading to a more noticeable appearance on the complexion. By extracting this debris from the pore, the mandelic and lactic acids promote a smooth and even skin texture; ideal for flawless make-up application. Red clover extract tackles the other main cause of enlarged pores: excess sebum production, by blocking the enzyme which produces sebum to regulate the skin’s oil levels. Misshapen pores can also result from the ageing process, as skin starts to sag and lose elasticity. Alpha-lipoic acid provides essential antioxidant protection to prevent premature ageing caused by free radicals. This keeps collagen and elastin intact and leaves pores taut and youthful-looking.
Red Clover Extract – An exceptional botanical pore minimiser, red clover extract helps reduce sebum production, enhances cellular turnover and acts as a natural astringent to minimise the appearance of pores.
L-Mandelic Acid – A softly exfoliating AHA with BHA power, chirally correct mandelic acid is able to work both on the surface of the skin and within pores for a deep but gentle exfoliation.
L-Lactic Acid – A gentle AHA that gently exfoliates the upper layers of skin, while deeply hydrating for a nourished and cared for complexion.
alpha-Lipoic Acid – A potent antioxidant, ALA protects the skin from premature ageing caused by the environment and UV rays. It can prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin to protect the skin’s delicate structure, for a firmer complexion and taut pores.
Hyaluronic Acid – With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the surrounding atmosphere into the skin, leaving the complexion both nourished and supple.
Every morning and evening, apply a small amount of liquid to a cotton pad and sweep across the face and neck, avoiding the delicate eye area.
