Broad Spectrum Physical SPF 30
It should go without saying that sun protection is a crucial step to a successful skincare regime. Fine lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and a dull complexion can all arise as a result of long-term, unprotected sun exposure.
The British Association of Dermatologists recommends daily use of a broad spectrum sunscreen to minimise the effects of photodamage and limit the risk of skin cancers. So keep skin protected with new Medik8 Physical Sunscreen.
Boasting broad spectrum SPF 30 and a formulation that doesn’t contain nanoparticles, the fast-absorbing cream is light enough for everyday use and strong enough to defend against all signs of photoaging.
The advanced sunscreen also combines anti-pollution and anti-glycation technology to protect against environmental aggressors while correcting existing lines and wrinkles.
Physical vs Chemical Sunscreen
The unique formula uses a photostable blend of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These all-natural physical filters work by reflecting the sun’s radiation away from the skin, much like a mirror.
Unlike chemical filters that work by absorbing UV energy and converting it into heat Physical Sunscreen does not induce redness or clog pores, making it perfect for sensitive and blemish-prone skin as well as normal skin types.
Infrared radiation makes up more than half of the harmful rays emitted by the sun. It is particularly dangerous as it has the ability to bypass the epidermis, inducing free radical damage in the lower levels of the skin (the dermis).
Physical Sunscreen shields the skin from infrared radiation to further diminish the effects of photodamage and premature ageing.
Glycation is a natural ageing process caused by internal physiological factors. It occurs when excess sugar molecules bind themselves with collagen and elastin fibres to form advanced glycation end products (A.G.E.s). As a result, the glycated fibres can no longer be renewed, leading to fine lines and wrinkles.
Fortified with next-generation anti-glycation technology, Physical Sunscreen has been clinically-proven to inhibit the formulation of A.G.E.s and also breaks down those that have already been formed in the skin.
Environmental aggressors such as cigarette smoke and exhaust fumes can be detrimental to a healthy complexion. Not only do they accelerate free radical damage, causing premature ageing, but they also induce inflammation within the skin, causing redness and irritation.
Physical Sunscreen’s advanced anti-pollution technology forms an urban-shield on the skin’s surface to prevent the absorption of harmful, airborne particles.
Every morning, after your regular moisturiser, apply Physical Sunscreen to face, neck and décolletage. Avoid upper and lower eyelids and lips. Reapply during the day for maximum protection.
Highly recommended for use after cosmetic procedures such as laser treatments, skin needling and chemical peels when skin is more photosensitive.
