Protect your skin from UV rays, visibly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and deeply hydrate the complexion - all at once.

Advanced Day Ultimate Protect is your daily moisturiser and SPF 50+ PA++++ sunscreen in one. It offers a comprehensive environmental shield against the sun's damaging, ageing and burning effects as well as air pollution, blue light, infrared damage and glycation (damage to collagen and elastin within the skin).

It therefore works to prevent the formation of wrinkles, dark spots, dullness and uneven skin texture. The formula is also elevated with a next-generation DNA repair enzyme called photolyase (pronounced 'photo-lye-aze') which works to support your skin's natural repair mechanisms following UV exposure.

Advanced Day Ultimate Protect is proven to deliver a non-greasy, non-comedogenic, invisible finish on all skin tones* and can be easily applied under makeup.

Our highest SPF product in the Medik8 range, offering the highest level of PA+ protection against UVA rays – PA++++. We use a complex of premium, modern sun filters carefully selected for their photostability, high performance on the skin, and skin friendly benefits.

    1. 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 and collagen production. 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 photolayse 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    5. 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.

    • How To Use
      1. As the last step in your skincare routine, apply a liberal amount (¼ teaspoon or 5 pumps) of Advanced Day Ultimate Protect to the face, adding more for the neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area.
      2. Use light, upward strokes and allow to absorb.
      3. Reapply throughout the day as needed, and every 2 hours if in direct sunlight.
      4. Perfect for layering over your favourite Medik8 vitamin C serum.
