Transform Skin Overnight with True Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is a powerful ingredient, renowned for its ability to exfoliate the skin and help tackle issues including hyperpigmentation. The smallest of the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), glycolic acid can penetrate the deepest into the skin enabling it to help address more stubborn skin concerns such as uneven texture and a lacklustre complexion.

However, when used too frequently, high strength at-home glycolic acid products (most commonly toners) have the potential to cause irritation and impairment to the skin barrier. That’s why Medik8 believes that occasional use of glycolic acid, in a carefully considered formula, is the best way to harness this incredible ingredient and experience its transformative effects.

Sleep Glycolic has been expertly formulated by the team at Medik8 to help deliver exceptional exfoliating results without irritation or downtime. As the glycolic acid is encapsulated in a crystal cyclodextrin ‘shell’ that is slowly broken down upon contact with skin enzymes, the encapsulation gradually delivers the high strength exfoliating acid into the skin overnight to reduce the potential for irritation.

With a total 10% free active acid, the glycolic acid is able to easily penetrate into the skin, improving the end results, without the downsides.

When used twice a week, Sleep Glycolic ensures dead skin cells aresloughed off, revealing a visibly glowing and more even toned complexion, while simultaneously helping smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ideal for those who are new to chemical peeling, Sleep Glycolic is also a brilliant way to top up the results of professional peels in between sessions and is perfect to use the night before an event when skin needs an instant glow-up.
