Description

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen SPF50 is a nano-free mineral sunscreen that provides with high-level protection.

This broad-spectrum sunscreen shields the skin against the damaging effects of UVB and UVA rays.

An intelligent complex of antioxidants boosts protection and prevent signs of premature skin ageing, such as wrinkles, sagging and glycation.

Why Medk8 Physical Sunscreen SPF50?

Up to 80% of premature skin ageing is caused by exposure to UV rays.

Sunscreen is the best anti-ageing skin care products there is.

The elegant formula provides anti-pollution, anti-infrared, anti-glycation and SPF protection.

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen is non-irritating and can be used every day, even by those with sensitive skin.

It uses the mineral filter Zinc Oxide at 22.75% to protect against UVB and UVA rays.

There are no unnecessary or irritating ingredients, such as essential oils or fragrance, to irritate or photosensitise the skin.

An antioxidant complex provides additional protection against the signs of skin ageing, helping prevent visible wrinkles, sagging and discolourations.

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen is great choice for anyone with sensitive, rosacea, ageing or sun intolerant skin, as well as anyone who has had clinical treatments to resurface the skin. And it won’t clog pores.

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen ingredients

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen key ingredients:

Zinc Oxide is a mineral sunscreen filter that protects against UVB and UVA rays. Zinc Oxide absorbs the sun’s radiation, as well as reflecting and scattering it away from the skin to give you the best possible protection.

Marrubium Vulgare Extract is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from pollution-induced damage and supports repair. In addition, it strengthens the skin barrier, reduces inflammation and improves rough texture.

Carnosine is a protective peptide, found naturally in the skin, that inhibits sugars in the body binding to collagen in the skin to form a type of skin ageing called glycation. Glycation involves damage to collagen ad elastin in the skin. It presents as severely aged with yellowing, sagging and deep cross-hatched wrinkles. Carnosine also protects the skin from infrared rays and the breakdown of collagen.

Ergothioneine is an antioxidant amino acid that prevents oxidative damage. It also may enable DNA repair in skin cells exposed to UV rays. A study comparing Ergothionene to Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) found it to be superior in protecting against reactive oxygen species after exposure to UVA rays.

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen review

My skin is very picky and doesn’t always react well with skin care products but I found this to be very gentle on my skin. It does contain Zinc Oxide so it is very white in colour, but by simply rubbing it into the skin more it quickly disappears. The texture is sticky to touch before you apply, but once on and rubbed into the skin it’s completely dry touch and feels almost like you’re wearing nothing on your skin. I’ve been using the same sunscreen on my face for years but after trying this I think I might be ready to switch.

How to use

Shake tube before use.

Apply Medik8 Physical Sunscreen after cleansing and using your serum and moisturiser.

Dispense an appropriate amount and work into the face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area. Use your fingers or a beauty blender.

Ensure you apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before sun exposure, and reapply during the day for maximum protection.

If you’re exposed to direct sun, reapply every two hours.

Reapply during the day, even if working indoors, as UVA radiation can penetrate clouds and glass.

Reapply every two hours and after swimming, towelling or heavy sweating, in accordance with the instructions.

Remember that sunscreen needs to be used alongside other forms of sun protection:

  • seek shade
  • wear a hat
  • wear sunglasses
  • wear protective clothing

Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.

Can be used on children. However for infants (children under 6 months), check with your doctor first.

Store in a cool, dry place, away from heat and light. Do not leave this product in your vehicle or near a window.

Discard appropriately when this product reaches its use-by date.
