Pore Refining Scrub
Reveal flawless, radiant skin with Pore Refining Scrub. This creamy, dual-action facial scrub uses a powerful complex of chemical and physical exfoliants to completely transform the appearance of your skin. Salicylic and mandelic acid dissolve deep-seated impurities and oil to decongest and tighten pores, while natural jojoba grains gently slough away dead skin cells to help perfect the texture of the complexion. Pores are left virtually undetectable and skin feels soft, smooth and supple. Best of all, the velvety formula enhances the skin’s receptiveness to the rest of your beauty routine by allowing follow-up products to penetrate deeper. The ultimate upgrade to your pore-perfecting skincare regime.
How it works
A dual-action exfoliator, Pore Refining Scrub harnesses the power of both exfoliating acids and physical exfoliators for a deeply cleansed complexion. Mandelic acid is an AHA with BHA properties, working on the surface of the skin to slough off dead skin cells. As it is also slightly oil-soluble, it is able to enter the oil within pores to break down blockages which can lead to blemishes. Natural jojoba micro-exfoliators gently lift dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to reveal a radiant, refreshed looking complexion underneath. BHA salicylic acid also gets to work within pores to help clear residue. By breaking down the impurities inside the pore, the scrub helps to minimise the appearance of enlarged pores. Overactive sebum production can also stretch out the pores to make them more visible. Niacinamide is used in Pore Refining Scrub which helps inhibit the production of sebum, keeping pores tight and clear.
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.
Salicylic Acid – Decongesting and exfoliating from within the pore, this BHA breaks down the clogged oil and skin cells which could lead to blemishes or blocked pores.
Jojoba Micro-Exfoliators – Perfectly spherical natural micro-exfoliators gently buff away dead skin cells to leave the complexion refreshed and refined.
Niacinamide – Otherwise known as vitamin B3, this soothing anti-inflammatory reduces redness and irritation, while regulating sebum production to minimise pore size.
Massage into a moistened face and neck with soft, circular motions. Gently remove by splashing with water and pat dry. Can be used as a weekly exfoliating treatment or more often if desired. Follow with your Medik8 serum and moisturiser.
