Description

KEY BENEFITS

The intelligent formula provides exceptionally high SPF 50+ non-nano protection while feeling featherlight and non-sticky on the skin. The smooth, fragrance-free cream soothes and calms the skin while providing powerful protection against free radical damage caused by UV exposure. Ideal for use in the morning at the end of any Medik8 skincare regime to protect from premature skin ageing. Carefully crafted for use after chemical peels when delicate skin is highly sensitive to UV exposure. The semi-matte finish is a great base for make-up; skin is left protected, hydrated, and supple.

HOW IT WORKS

Non-nano mineral filter zinc oxide reflects and absorbs UV rays to protect the skin from sun damage. Marrubium vulgare extract provides superior anti-pollution defence to limit the damage caused by environmental pollutants. Physical Sunscreen also includes anti-glycation (also known as anti-A.G.E.) technology. Glycation is a natural ageing process that occurs when excess sugars in our body bind themselves to proteins such as collagen and elastin, transforming them into advanced glycation end products (or A.G.E.s for short). As a result, the glycated protein fibres can no longer be renewed, which can lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Physical Sunscreen 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 are known to play a part in the breakdown of collagen.

Expert’s Advice

“Highly recommended for use after cosmetic procedures such as laser treatments, skin needling and chemical peels when skin is highly photosensitive”
“It’s important that you renew your sunscreen every year, even if it hasn’t expired. Your old formula will have been exposed to high temperatures and moisture that can alter its consistency and composition, making it less effective”

DIRECTIONS

  • Apply Physical Sunscreen every morning, as the final step in your skincare routine. Shake before use and apply a ¼ teaspoon amount of Physical Sunscreen to the face, adding more for exposed neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area. Apply the sunscreen at least 20 minutes before sun exposure, and reapply during the day for maximum protection. If in direct sunlight, the sunscreen should be reapplied every 2 hours. Use fingers or a beauty blender to pat the sunscreen over makeup throughout the day.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Zinc Oxide – A non-nano, mineral sunscreen filter with broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays.

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.

Marrubium Vulgare Extract – A powerful antioxidant that provides essential protection to shield delicate skin from pollution-induced damage.
