How It Works
With a host of protective technologies against environment damage, Advanced Day Total Protect is the ultimate SPF 30 moisturiser for youthful-looking skin.
Medik8’s carefully chosen complex of advanced sunscreen filters are proven to be high-performing, kind to skin and photostable: the best combination for advanced protection against sun damage.
Moringa extract is a breathable film former that sits on the skin surface to provide exceptional anti-pollution defence, helping to quench free radicals before they can damage the skin.
Carnosine is a multi-tasking dipeptide which protects from both glycation and infrared light. 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 Total 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 could play a part in the breakdown of collagen.
Finally, Advanced Day Total Protect features antioxidant theobroma cacao seed extract to mitigate the negative effects of blue light emitted from the sun.

How To Use
As the last step in your skincare routine, apply a liberal amount (¼ teaspoon or 5 pumps) of Advanced Day Total 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.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
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.
A next-generation antioxidant that forms an urban shield on the surface of the skin to prevent damage caused by environmental pollutants.
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.
Derived from cocoa, this powerful extract protects the skin from the harmful effects of blue light, while quenching dangerous free radicals.
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.Full Ingredients

The Science Behind
COCOA SEED EXTRACT
Blue light defence is provided by theobroma cocoa seed extract, an ingredient sustainably sourced from Peru. The extract is derived from a rare, premium variety of cocoa: criollo porcelana, often referred to as the world’s most expensive chocolate. Blue light is very similar in wavelength to harmful UV light and studies have shown that it can cause hyperpigmentation and free radical damage. Containing cocoa peptides and saccharides, the cocoa extract helps to maintain the skin’s photoreceptors while tackling harmful free radicals to prevent blue light damage.
