Medik8 Pore Refining Scrub™
With its silky-soft, creamy texture and a sweet, honeysuckle fragrance, Pore Refining Scrub delights the senses as it helps renew and resurface the skin for a picture-perfect complexion. Salicylic and mandelic acid lift impurities from deep within the skin; decongesting enlarged pores so they can shrink back to their original size. At the same time, biodegradable jojoba grains delicately polish the surface of the skin; effortlessly restoring a healthy, natural glow. As always, your skin’s health is our number 1 priority. That’s why we use jojoba grains that are smooth and spherical in shape to ensure gentle exfoliation without irritation or scratching. Over time, pores are refined, skin feels soft to the touch, and the overall complexion is left beaming with youthful luminosity.

How to use
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.
