Medik8 Advanced Day Ultimate Protect
To make our ultimate day cream, Advanced Day Ultimate Protect is supercharged with environmental defence and encapsulated photolyase. The ultimate defence prevents premature signs of skin ageing. The high-performance day cream features protection from blue light, infrared light, glycation and pollution providing skin with the ultimate environmental defence. Encapsulated photolyase, a light-activated DNA repair enzyme, helps to support the skin’s natural repair mechanisms after exposure to UV. Advanced Day Ultimate Protect offers resilient protection in every situation, season or location. Ultimate protection during the hottest summer, nourishing on the skin in the coldest winter. It is designed to be a mainstay in your skincare routine, 365 days a year. Infused with nourishing squalane and hydrating multi-weight hyaluronic acid it delivers daily moisture to the complexion too.
DIRECTIONS OF USE:
As the last step in your skincare routine, apply a liberal amount (¼ teaspoon) of Advanced Day Ultimate Protect to the face, adding more for the neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area. Use light, upward strokes and allow to absorb. Reapply throughout the day as needed, and every 2 hours if in direct sunlight.
Perfect for layering over your favourite Medik8 vitamin C serum.
Advanced UV Filters - A complex of premium, modern chemical sun filters carefully selected for their high performance on the skin, photostability and skin friendly benefits.
Encapsulated Photolyase - Derived from plankton extract, photolyase is a light-activated DNA repair enzyme which supports the skin’s natural defence mechanisms against DNA damage caused by UV light.
Blueberry Seed Oil - Sustainably sourced from 800,000 upcycled blueberries*, blueberry seed oil is rich in beta-carotene and acts as a natural shield against blue light.
Marrubium Vulgare Extract - A powerful antioxidant that provides essential protection to shield delicate skin from pollution-induced damage.
Carnosine - A protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body, carnosine blocks skin-damaging sugars from binding to collagen in the skin in a process called glycation. This helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles, while shielding skin from infrared damage.
Squalane - Squalane is an almost skin-identical lipid that helps to support the natural skin barrier, working to moisturise and nourish the complexion.
Multi-weight Hyaluronic Acid - With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000x its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid can draw in moisture, leaving the complexion feeling both nourished and supple.
