- HOW TO USE
- ABOUT THE BRAND
Balance Moisturiser was previously known as Beta Moisturise. Medik8 Balance Moisturiser & Glycolic Acid Activator works to balance your microbiome is a key factor in healthy, blemish-free skin. Your skin is home to good bacteria that regulate everything from hydration to sensitivity. But when this bacteria is diminished by the likes of pollution and harsh cleansing, the skin's natural equilibrium becomes compromised. This can lead to dry skin, irritation and blemishes.
Balance Moisturiser uses a high-performance blend of prebiotics and probiotics to rebalance the skin's microbiome, promoting a healthy, radiant complexion. The lightweight everyday moisturiser has been further enhanced with all-day oil control to decrease shine and mattify the complexion, plus beta-glucan and niacinamide to boost hydration and soothe skin back to health. Perfect for use under foundation, skin is left supple, matte and blemish-free. Blemishes can be caused by changes in the skin's microbiome, the bacteria that lives on the skin's surface. Balance Moisturiser helps to rebalance the microbiome with prebiotics which feed the good bacteria living on the surface of the skin to encourage a healthy flora. Probiotics add to the levels of live bacteria in the flora, helping to balance and restore a long-lasting clear complexion. Cinnamon extract works in synergy with the pre and probiotics to reduce levels of blemish-causing bacteria, such as P. acnes. Meanwhile, beta-Glucan enhances the skin's ability to repair itself for immediate comfort, and niacin amide soothes red, inflamed blemishes.Glycolic Acid Activator is used to supercharge the power of Balance Moisturiser. The powerful AHA is applied before the probiotic moisturiser 2-3 times a week (or less depending on your skin's sensitivity), and works to dissolve bonds between dead skin cells so they can be gently exfoliated away. This allows Balance Moisturiser to penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting the freshest skin cells with its blemish-busting actives.
After cleansing and applying serums or treatments in the morning and evening, apply a small amount of Balance Moisturiser and blend evenly across the face, neck and dÌ©colletage. For boosted performance and exfoliation, optionally use Glycolic Acid Activator 2-3 times a week. After cleansing in the evening, apply 4-6 drops to the face, neck and dÌ©colletage. Once dry, apply Balance Moisturiser. Do not mix Glycolic Acid Activator and Balance Moisturiser directly. If using a serum, apply Glycolic Acid Activator before, and Balance Moisturiser after.
