We all want healthy, youthful skin but the quest for a great complexion can be tricky. With so many brands on the market, it can be difficult to know which products you should be using and how often. It’s even trickier if you have sensitive skin or are prone to blemishes and breakouts’. Incorporating new skin care products into your routine can be a cause for anxiety, not least of all because you just don’t know how your skin will respond, even if you’ve chosen products for your skin type. With this in mind, we thought we’d introduce you to some of our favourite products from Medik8, many of which are perfect for sensitive skin, so that you can start to build your new skincare routine with confidence:

Medik8 Blemish Control Pads

If you’re prone to breakouts, you probably know that you usually need potent ingredients to tackle the spots, but this can be tricky if you also have sensitive skin. Medik8 Blemish Control Pads are an effective, alcohol-free blemish treatment that are tough on breakouts and gentle on skin. Each pad is pre-soaked in a clarifying maximum strength salicylic acid serum which helps to  dissolve oil and dirt from deep within the pore to purify problem complexions, minimise blemishes and calm redness.

Medik8 Liquid Peptides

Peptides are amino acids that make up certain proteins needed by the skin. The skin needs collagen to maintain plumpness and adding peptides can stimulate your skin to make collagen. That’s why Medik8 have created this 30% peptide serum, which uses a pioneering drone delivery system to target visible signs of skin ageing. It’s a potent alternative to injectable treatments and contains nourishing prebiotics to help to balance the skin’s natural microbiome to ensure optimum skin health.

Medik8 Daily Refresh Balancing Toner

Many toners are alcohol based, which may help your skin to be clean but can also cause dehydration and irritation. Medik8 Daily Refresh Balancing Toner is a pH balancing, alcohol-free toner that soothes and comforts skin while removing excess oil and impurities. It contains aloe vera and niacinamide to calm the complexion, while allantoin moisturises and hydrates and witch hazel gently firms and tones. It’s suitable for all skin types and will leave your skin clean, hydrated and irritation-free.

Medik8 Advanced Day Eye Protect SPF30

If you’re trying to build a routine which targets the signs of ageing, then you’ll want to use a product which is made specifically for the delicate skin around the eyes. The skin here is thinner and less able to produce collagen, which means fine lines often show here before anywhere else. Medik8 Advanced Day Eye Protect SPF30 is an all-encompassing anti-ageing eye cream designed to nourish and hydrate while combatting environmental causes of skin ageing. As well as containing 5* SPF protection, it also offers pollution shield, anti-infrared, anti-blue light and anti-A.G.E technologies.

Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides

Retinols are one of the most-used anti-ageing ingredients, but they are also quite potent and therefore simply too strong for some sensitive complexions. This serum from Medik8 instead uses Bakuchiol Peptides, which are a plant-based, anti-ageing alternative for vitamin A. The conditioning serum is incredibly soothing and calming on the skin, helping to visibly reduce any inflammation and redness. Your face, neck and decolletage will be visibly plumped and supple, while the skin is left feeling soft and smooth.
