Hyaluronic Acid with Vitamin B5
One of the bestselling products from the acclaimed Medik8 brand, Medik8 Hydr8 B5 is a crystal-clear serum designed to enhance moisture and soften the skin through intense hydration. With everyday use of this star serum, your deeply nourished skin will soon become softer and more supple, with visibly reduced lines.
Its lightweight gel formula allows Medik8 Hydr8 B5 serum to sink in quickly and quench the skin without any greasiness, effectively restoring the moisture balance whether your skin is dry or oily. Enriching Vitamin B5 supports skin regeneration, while hyaluronic acid works to flood your skin with moisture.
What are the benefits of Medik8 Hydr8 B5 serum for my skin?
This deeply nourishing serum has many benefits for your skin, especially when used as part of a full skincare routine. Medik8 Hydr8 B5 is fast-absorbing and free of oils and fragrances, meaning you can achieve soft hydrated skin without a sticky after-feel, irritation, or clogged pores.
Medik8 Hydr8 B5 serum contains a blend of different weights of hyaluronic acid, allowing multi-depth hydration for long-lasting moisture. This helps to improve your skin texture, making it feel smoother and softer to the touch and appear more luminous to the eye.
Vitamin B5 not only encourages water retention in the skin, but also encourages skin regeneration, improving your skin’s resistance to infections and environmental damage. The skin surface becomes plumper, with a noticeable reduction in any fine lines and wrinkles.
How does Medik8 Hydr8 B5 serum work?
Interested in the science behind the serum? The primary moisturising ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a large molecule that occurs in your skin naturally, filling gaps between skin cells to maintain the structure. It plumps up the skin by working as a magnet for H20 molecules, and is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its own weight in water.
This Medik8 Hydr8 B5 serum contains multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid molecules. This means that the smaller ones can penetrate deeply into the skin, while larger ones form an invisible veil across the upper layers. These molecules all draw water to every layer of your skin and lock it in, enhancing your skin’s natural barrier and resulting in intensely moisturised skin throughout the day.
Pantothenic acid, or Vitamin B5, is known for boosting moisture retention as well as skin rejuvenation through its powerful anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties. This ingredient helps your skin to build up antibodies to fight off infections associated with acne, while soothing and relieving stressed skin in need of a hydration boost to develop a soft and youthful-looking face.
More information about Medik8 Hydr8 B5
This cruelty-free serum is suitable for all skin types, including spot-prone and sensitive skin. Not only does it deeply hydrate, but the light and refreshing Medik8 Hydr8 B5 formula also calms the skin and relieves irritation.
It’s the perfect companion product to supercharge regular moisturisers and will boost the performance of any other day creams or night creams you use as part of your skincare routine. Medik8 advocates for the CSA philosophy, which involves applying a Vitamin C product and sunscreen during the day followed by a Vitamin A product at night.
Applying Medik8 Hydr8 B5 serum before other products will increase their ability to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin as the hyaluronic acid draws more moisture from them, while Vitamin B5 works in synergy with Vitamin C to restore damaged skin and protect against further sun damage.
This product was previously known as Liquid Rehydration Serum. Please note that while product names and packaging are subject to change due to updates throughout the Medik8 product range, the formulas remain the same unless indicated otherwise, with the same great results guaranteed.
How to Apply+
For the best results, you should apply Medik8 Hydr8 B5 serum daily in the morning and the evening. Cleanse and dry your skin thoroughly before using the product like so:
1) Apply 5-6 drops of serum directly to the skin with the applicator and blend evenly across your face, neck, and décolletage.
2) Alternatively, place a drop on your fingertip and massage it into the skin, repeating until the desired areas are covered.
3) Allow the serum to absorb before applying further skincare products, such as a daily moisturiser or an overnight cream.
4) When applying during the day, always follow with a sunscreen product to keep your skin protected against UV rays (even if it’s cloudy).
Medik8 advises that before using any of their products, you should perform a patch test by applying a small amount to an area of skin. If no irritation or other unwanted effects occur within 24 hours, you can proceed to using the product as instructed above.
