Getting that perfect tan might seem like your top priority this summer – but looking after your skin is the real secret to a healthy-looking complexion.  Times have changed and protection from the sun isn’t the only thing you should be worrying about this summer, keeping your skin hydrated is proving just as important for long term skin health.

Keeping that radiant, glowing skin for your future years is something to start working on now. Medik8 skincare products are jam-packed full of ingredients that will keep your skin looking luminous and more hydrated all summer long.

Here are some suggestions from the Medik8 range we use – you will never look back.

For that daily radiance…

Medik8 Daily Radiance Vitamin C

Retailing: $98

An all in one moisturiser and sunscreen that boosts skin radiance from deep within. The sun protection and vitamin C shield the skin from everyday aggressors to visibly smooth wrinkles and preserve luminosity.

Vitamin C is a power vitamin that fights free radicals to prevent fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots and uneven pigmentation. This product also contains hyaluronic acid which aids in skin renewal for a more youthful complexion. This is the perfect post sun remedy to prevent formation of pigmentation on the skin.

For that collagen boost…

Medik8 Balance Moisturiser and Glycolic Acid Activator

Retailing: $98

It restores the skins microbiome to boost good bacteria while limiting the bad. This product is low in oils and leaves a matte-finish – great for oilier skin types or those who like a light-weight moisturiser. It contains lactic acid to boost hydration for a healthy glow and AHA’s that works by breaking the protein bridges between dead skin cells and encouraging them to exfoliate.

It has a natural moisturising effect to stimulate the production of that all-important collagen. Perfect for summer when skin is calling out for some hydration!

To retain moisture…

Medik8 Hydr8 B5

Retailing: $79

Everyone should be using the Hydr8 B5 no matter what your skin type!  It’s a must have for a day outdoors or for those who spend the day in air-conditioning.  This super serum draws water from the atmosphere and binds it to the skin.

This liquid rehydration serum is for intense hydration and long-lasting moisture as vitamin B5 is designed to increase the skins water retention and cell regeneration. This product has the ability to hold 1,000 times its own weight in water, making it a fantastic hydrating protect during summer.
