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.
Moringa extract is a breathable film former that sits on the skin surface around the eyes 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 around the eye area. Advanced Day Eye Protect uses carnosine to help inhibit the glycation reaction and keep the skin around the eyes 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.
Advanced Day Eye Protect features antioxidant theobroma cacao seed extract to mitigate the negative effects of blue light emitted from the sun.

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, preventing 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 and boosting collagen.
Revitalising caffeine helps to reduce the size of blood vessels to diffuse the appearance of tired eyes.
Found naturally in citrus fruits, hesperidin improves blood circulation and strengthens capillary walls for brighter under eyes.

The Science Behind
“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.”
