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.

How it Works
The ultimate protection in the Medik8 range, offering advanced sunscreen filters. Medik8 uses a complex of premium, modern sun filters carefully selected for their photostability, high performance on the skin, and skin friendly benefits. Advanced Day Ultimate Protect sun protection is boosted by DNA repair enzymes. Exposure to UV rays can result in DNA damage, with a resulting effect on natural processes such as free radical defence mechanisms. Photolyase, a light-activated enzyme, supports the skin's natural repair mechanisms to prevent the future formation of visible fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation caused by UV exposure. The photolyase is encapsulated to optimise penetration into the skin, delivering next-generation anti-ageing results that include healthier-looking and more resilient skin with a natural glow. UV rays are not the only thing we need to protect our skin from; we are also exposed to a number of other daily factors all year round which could cause premature ageing. Advanced Day Ultimate Protect features sustainably sourced blueberry seed oil, a natural shield against blue light. Blue light from the sun can cause free radical damage or visible hyperpigmentation across the complexion. Blueberry seed oil is able to absorb the blue light before it hits the skin, minimising damage from blue light exposure. Marrubium vulgare extract provides superior anti-pollution defence to limit the damage caused by environmental pollutants, by protecting the skin cells and helping to strengthen the skin barrier. Carnosine is a multi-tasking dipeptide which protects from both glycation and infrared. Glycation is a natural ageing process in which dietary sugars react with proteins such as collagen, transforming them into advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.s) that cannot be renewed, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Advanced Day Ultimate Protect uses carnosine to help inhibit the glycation reaction and keep skin protected from glycation-derived skin ageing. Carnosine can also protect the skin from infrared rays, which make up around half of the sun’s rays and are known to play a part in the breakdown of collagen. Nourishing squalane and hydrating hyaluronic acid work to infuse the skin with long-lasting moisture, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
