Blemish Control Pads from Medik8 are an effective all-in-one treatment for blemish-prone and congested complexions from teens to adults.
If you suffer from frequent blemishes and breakouts, you’ll know how embarrassing, unsightly and often painful they can be. But you’re not alone; around 12% of adult women and 3% of men will suffer with blemishes or acneic skin until the age of 44 while around 90% of adolescents experience acne and blemishes.
The best way to get breakouts under control is a consistent, non-irritating routine specifically designed for spot-prone skin so it won’t clog pores and can help control oil.
Why do we get spots?
Blemishes occur when excess sebum clogs the opening of a hair follicle and cannot reach the surface of the skin. It then creates an ideal environment for skin bacteria to multiply. This bacteria produces enzymes that irritate and inflame the skin, and causes blemishes.
How to get rid of them?
Blemish Control Pads™ are a clarifying treatment for adults and teenagers to improve the appearance of problematic skin and help prevent future breakouts. The ultra soft textured cotton pads are soaked with maximum strength 2% Salicylic Acid, which exfoliates the skin surface and penetrates deep inside pores to dissolve dirt and oil.
Natural spearmint gives the pads a fresh smell, and are gentle enough to use daily. Medik8’s unique formula is alcohol-free, unlike many spot treatment pads in the market, which means they won’t cause unwanted dryness or irritation. Blemish Control Pads™ are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Salicylic Acid (BHA) unclogs and exfoliates inside pores as well as the surface of the skin, promoting dead skin cell removal and balancing sebum secretion, leaving a smooth, even texture. Key active ingredient Allantoin helps to soothe and heal inflamed, irritated skin and supports the stimulation of healthy new skin tissue. Glycerin is an effective humectant which helps to moisturise and enhance skin barrier function.
How to use it?
Use in the morning and/or in the evening on a thoroughly cleansed skin. Gently wipe 1 pad all over the face or specific area, avoiding the delicate skin around the eyes. Great for larger areas, they can be used on the neck, the back and the back of the arms. Allow to dry and then follow with your regular serum and moisturiser with sun protection in the day.
For best results, use Blemish Control Pads™ twice daily alongside the Medik8 Blemishes solution which includes; exfoliating foam cleanser beta Cleanse™, oil-free antioxidant gel-serum blemish AOX™, targeted blemish treatment beta Gel™ and skin balancing mattifying moisturiser beta Moisturise™.
