Medik8 Clarifying Foam
Clarifying Foam is carefully pH balanced so that it won’t strip the skin or disrupt its delicate equilibrium. AHAs and BHAs gently exfoliate to unclog pores, leaving skin feeling smooth and renewed. The foaming cleanser is free from artificial fragrance so it won’t cause unwanted irritation, while tea tree oil gives the foam a fresh natural aroma. Skin is left cool, refreshed and thoroughly cleansed without feeling dry or tight.
While the foaming cleanser melts down make-up and impurities, its active ingredients begin to resurface the skin to provide a glowing complexion. AHAs and BHAs work in synergy with skin to promote a clear and perfected complexion that is significantly less prone to breakouts. AHAs, such as L-mandelic acid, work on the upper layers of the skin, freeing dead skin cells so they can easily be sloughed away. BHAs, such as salicylic acid, penetrate deeper into pores, helping to break down blockages which can often lead to the formation of a blemish. Remarkably L-mandelic acid is oil and water soluble, and has both AHA and BHA properties to intensify the exfoliating power of Clarifying Foam. Meanwhile, soothing niacinamide acts as an anti-inflammatory to reduce red and sore blemishes, and tea tree oil works as an antimicrobial to help reduce blemish-causing bacteria.
Salicylic Acid – Decongesting and exfoliating from within the pore, this BHA breaks down the clogged oil and skin cells which could cause blemishes.
L-Mandelic Acid – A softly exfoliating AHA with BHA power, chirally correct mandelic acid is able to work both on the surface of the skin and within pores for a deep but gentle exfoliation.
Niacinamide – Otherwise known as vitamin B3, this soothing anti-inflammatory quickly reduces redness and irritation surrounding the blemish, while regulating sebum production to prevent blocked pores.
Tea Tree Oil – Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, tea tree oil helps to keep complexions clear and blemish-free.
