|How it works
The delicate eye area is often one of the first places to show age and needs extra protection against external aggressors. With SPF 30, 5* protection, Advanced Day Eye Protect shields the delicate skin from harmful UV rays to limit premature ageing. Using carnosine in our anti-A.G.E technology prevents glycation, a natural ageing process in which sugars bind themselves to proteins such as collagen and elastin, transforming them into advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.s) that cannot be renewed. Carnosine is also able to protect the delicate skin from infrared rays, which can also break down collagen supplies. The lightweight cream shields against the effects of blue light from screens, which our eyes are exposed to everyday. A combination of caffeine and hesperidin helps to diminish the signs of dark circles to leave eyes protected, bright and refreshed.
|Key ingredients & full ingredients list
Moringa Extract – A next-generation antioxidant that forms an urban shield on the surface of the skin to prevent damage caused by environmental pollutants. Carnosine – A protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body, carnosine blocks skin-damaging sugars from binding to collagen in the skin, preventing the formation of wrinkles, while shielding skin from infrared damage. Theobroma Cocoa Seed Extract – Derived from cocoa, this powerful extract protects the skin from the harmful effects of blue light, while quenching dangerous free radicals and boosting collagen. Caffeine – Revitalising caffeine helps to reduce the size of blood vessels to diffuse the appearance of tired eyes. Hesperidin – Found naturally in citrus fruits, hesperidin improves blood circulation and strengthens capillary walls for brighter under eyes.
“Aside from sun damage, glycation is one of the biggest contributors to premature ageing, and many people haven’t heard of it before. Glycation is the process by which sugars in your body react with proteins, such as collagen, to form advanced glycation end products or A.G.E.s for short. The A.G.E.s can form crosslinks between collagen strands, which makes the collagen stiff and inflexible. The end result of this is less supple, older looking skin, and often the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Medik8’s Advanced Day range uses the peptide, carnosine, to inhibit the glycation process to protect against premature ageing.” Daniel Isaacs, Formulation and Development Director
