Perfect for Dry Skin
Designed specifically for compromised and post-treatment skin, this ultra-rich cream works to provide all-day moisture and comfort. Perfect for those with very dry skin and for use after aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, skin needling, lasers and microdermabrasion.
Its intelligent formulation creates a protective barrier on the skin’s surface to keep hydration locked in tight while shielding against everyday irritants so that skin can repair and regenerate quickly.
The gentle formula leaves skin looking nourished and healthy looking.
How It Works
Post-treatment or compromised skin is exceptionally delicate and needs special attention. Damaged skin often has an impaired natural barrier. This means it is unable to defend against the environment and can lose hydration quickly. Ultimate Recovery Intense combines repairing actives to help restore weakened skin barriers.
beta-Glucan comforts inflamed, sore skin by bringing down redness.
Arnica helps to stimulate the immune system to ease bruising and condition the skin.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply a small amount of Ultimate Recovery where necessary.
Leave to absorb before applying sunscreen. Use more often if required.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

The Science Behind
The rare Arnica montana is a bright yellow aromatic wildflower that grows in mountainous regions of Europe. It is often referred to as leopard’s bane. In folklore, humans discovered the power of arnica when they spotted mountain goats seeking out the arnica plant whenever they injured themselves after falling. Historically used as a natural remedy for bruising and sore muscles, arnica lends its anti-inflammatory properties to relieving sore skin.
