Medik8 Calmwise™ Serum
Calm redness, fast. Teprenone, the key active ingredient in Calmwise Serum, has been found to visibly reduce red, reactive skin in just 1 month. The soothing formula is designed specifically for sensitised skin, so is non-irritating, fragrance-free and paraben-free. The silky serum absorbs into the skin quickly, leaving behind a naturally glowing and hydrated complexion. Suitable for all skin types, the lightweight serum is non-comedogenic and won’t aggravate acne, making it a fantastic serum to calm the redness associated with blemishes.
This intelligent anti-redness serum supports sensitive skin by prolonging the life of skin cells. The DNA within our skin cells contains a string of amino acids called telomeres. These shorten continuously as we age, eventually becoming so small that they trigger cell death. Teprenone helps to stabilise telomeres. This extends the life of the cell and consequently enhances the skin’s natural barrier function. As a result, the skin’s sensitivity to external factors is reduced. In studies, teprenone has been shown to extend a cell’s lifespan by as much as a third. Organic sage extract is used alongside teprenone to prevent free radical attack. Boasting powerful antioxidant properties, it shields the skin from environmental damage to prevent premature signs of ageing. The extract also works as an anti-inflammatory to soothe redness-prone skin, leaving a smooth and even complexion.
