Medik8 Calmwise™ Colour Correct
Calmwise Colour Correct is a complete anti-redness cream designed to prevent flare-ups and provide instant coverage. Calming within seconds of application, the nourishing cream absorbs quickly to leave skin smooth and supple. 6 targeted actions on the skin help to prevent redness reappearing while providing instant relief and coverage. Skin appears calm, and stays calm.
This intelligent redness corrector has 6 targeted actions on the skin to prevent and care for redness-prone skin. Firstly, the cream reduces red and sore inflammation in the skin using niacinamide and bisabolol derived from calming chamomile extract. It also helps to suppress the immune system to minimise future reactions in the skin. Aloe vera and bakuchiol, derived from Indian Babchi seeds, quickly interrupt the inflammatory response to stop flushing. The nourishing cream is able to enhance the skin’s natural barrier with niacinamide, which stimulates the production of protective ceramides in the upper layers of the skin. Meanwhile, it helps to reduce blood flow to the skin’s surface by constricting blood vessels. Caffeine reduces the surface area of veins to diffuse their appearance, while perfluorodecalin helps to minimise the formation of new blood capillaries. Last but not least, the formula also offers instantaneous colour correction with mineral green pigments that immediately blend with your natural skin colour as it is applied.
