Medik8 Sleep Glycolic Overnight Peel 30ml

£39.00

The effectiveness of exfoliating acid products depends on 2 main things: how much acid is in the product (i.e. its %) and how acidic it is (i.e. its pH). Having a low level of acidity is important to make the acid work in the product. Exfoliating acids, like AHA or BHA, can be either active or inactive. Only when they are active, can they go into your skin and help with stubborn skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation. In Sleep Glycolic, we made sure our acid is active by making the product more acidic than most with a pH of 3.5 to ensure it delivers 10% of active acid. This makes our glycolic acid product very powerful. To control this power and prevent skin irritation, we use crystal encapsulation to release it slowly throughout the night and recommend using it twice a week to keep your skin healthy.

Medik8 Sleep Glycolic key ingredients:

Glycolic Acid 10% Free Acid Value – as the smallest of the AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), Glycolic Acid penetrates the upper layers of the skin and breaks down the bonds between skin cells, so they can be exfoliated away to reveal fresher, newer skin cells beneath. This encourages cell turnover, which eventually leads to healthier, more youthful-looking skin.

Korean Clover Extract – extracted from a South Korean flowering plant from the legume family, this plant has a form of circadian rhythm with its leaves and flowers opening during the daytime and closing at nighttime. When used topically on skin, Korean Clover Extract helps to regulate key biological factors such as hydration and detoxification for visibly brighter and healthier-looking skin.

Glycerin – is present in the natural moisturising factors of our skin, which provide essential protection and hydration. An effective humectant, this ingredient is able to draw water to itself from the lower layers of the skin and the atmosphere. This keeps the skin hydrated, supple and soft.

Medik8 Sleep Glycolic frequently asked questions:

Should I use Sleep Glycolic or Press & Glow?

Press & Glow is an everyday exfoliant that fits into every skincare routine. Sleep Glycolic is a more intensive treatment for advanced signs of ageing or skin concerns. We do not recommend using Press & Glow on the days you’re using Sleep Glycolic.

Can you use Sleep Glycolic with other direct acids?

Never layer direct acids, simply switch out your everyday direct acid on the days you use Sleep Glycolic. E.g. Press & Glow in your AM regime, Sleep Glycolic in your PM regime, then Press & Glow in the following AM regime.

Can I use Sleep Glycolic in the morning?

We do not recommend using Sleep Glycolic during the day.

Can I use Sleep Glycolic during summer months?

Exfoliating acids, including Sleep Glycolic, are completely safe for use in summer months, as long as you’re applying and re-applying a high protection sunscreen every day.

Can Sleep Glycolic be used when phasing in new strength or type of Vitamin A?

We would not recommend the use of Sleep Glycolic for new users phasing-in Vitamin A. While the effects of Vitamin A are optimised with the use of Sleep Glycolic, we would always advise users to allow their skin to get used to the prior before attempting to accelerate their results

Once skin has gotten into the rhythm of using Vitamin A nightly (once phase-in has been completed, or a couple of weeks of using a new strength) Sleep Glycolic is ideal for enhancing the visible anti-ageing benefits.

How to use:

After cleansing in the evening, smooth a pea-sized amount on face, neck and decolletage. Follow with the application of serums and/or moisturiser.

Always use SPF during the day as Glycolic Acid can make skin more sensitive to the sun. Use 2-3 times a week.

Size: 30ml

Radiant, Visibly Refined Skin

Sleep Glycolic removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface to reveal a visibly smoother and glowing complexion, with a more even tone and texture.

Healthy Skin Barrier

Sleep Glycolic uses innovative crystal encapsulation technology to gradually deliver glycolic acid into the skin throughout the night. This means the skin barrier remains comfortable and balanced during use.

Visibly Perfected Skin

Visibly resurfaces the skin texture, smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimises the look of hyperpigmentation. It also reduces congestion and the likelihood of blemishes forming.

Complement Your In-Clinic Results

Sleep Glycolic can help to prolong the results of a peeling / facial course. It can also be used as an entry level, at-home peel for those who are nervous about their first peeling experience.

Step 1

Cleanse your skin in the evening, smooth a pea-sized amount of Sleep Glycolic onto the face, neck and décolletage – avoiding the eye area. Some slight skin tingling is normal.

NOTE: For use 2-3 times per week.

Step 2

Follow with other serums and night moisturiser. Leave on overnight. As Sleep Glycolic is directly active on your skin, it should be the second step in your evening skincare routine (after cleansing). Layer all other serums and moisturisers on top.

Step 3

Always wear sunscreen the next day after using Sleep Glycolic. Patch testing prior to use is advised.

10% Active Glycolic Acid

With the smallest particle size of all the AHAs, glycolic acid is the most powerful. It works to break down the bonds between dead skin cells, so they can be easily exfoliated away to reveal fresher, newer skin cells beneath. The result is visibly brighter, smoother and decongested skin. This active is contained within a cyclodextrin-based shell (pronounced ‘sy-clo-DEXtrin’). This ensures its gradual release into the skin overnight to prevent irritation while prolonging the visible effects.

 

Korean Clover Extract

Works alongside glycolic acid to support the skin’s natural overnight repair and hydration processes. It also helps to maintain the natural skin barrier; reducing the potential for irritation.

 

Glycerin

A natural humectant which traps moisture within the skin to leave it hydrated and comfortable.
