Medik8 Advanced Day Ultimate Protect SPF50


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.

*Proven via independent consumer study conducted over 7 days on 53 participants, across all skin tones

Advanced UV Filters


A complex of premium chemical sun filters, carefully selected for their high performance, skin-friendly benefits and stability (effectiveness) in sunlight.


DNA Repair Enzyme (Encapsulated Photolyase)


Derived from plankton extract, photolyase is a light-activated DNA repair enzyme that helps to repair the visible ageing effects of UV rays following exposure.


360° Environmental Shield


An innovative combination of sustainably-sourced blueberry seed oil, marrubium vulgare (pronounced ‘mar-RUBE-ee-um vool-gah-ray’) extract and carnosine (pronounced ‘CAR-na-seen’) which works to protect against the effects of environmental stressors.




An almost skin-identical lipid which helps to support the natural skin barrier by nourishing the complexion.


Multi-Weight Hyaluronic Acid (prounounced ‘Hiya-le-ronick’)


With the ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, multi-weight hyaluronic acid draws moisture into multiple layers of the skin; leaving the complexion deeply hydrated and visibly supple.

Sadly, no sunscreen is able to block 100% of UV rays from reaching the skin. Even a perfectly-applied SPF 50+ sunscreen only protects against ~98.3% of UVB rays.* This leaves ~1.7% of UVB rays with the potential to reach the skin and impact skin health.

One of the most concerning effects being direct DNA damage. Although our skin naturally contains proteins called DNA repair enzymes (which work to limit the damage), these proteins deplete as we age.**

Medik8’s solution is to replenish the skin’s natural levels of DNA repair enzymes by applying them topically with Advanced Day Ultimate Protect, diminishing visible signs of DNA damage such as fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration.
