A complete anti-ageing moisturiser, Hydr8 Day 360 is Medik8’s first anti-glycation product with its exclusive Anti-AGE complex.
Glycation is the largest cause of skin ageing after oxidation by free radicals. Excess sugar can lead to a variety of health concerns but can also age the skin.
If there is too much sugar in the body, protein molecules can cross-link with sugar molecules creating proteins called advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that compromise collagen. This may result in skin wrinkling, inflammation, loss of elasticity, accelerated ageing and compromised barrier function.
To help combat photo-ageing, Hydr8 Day 360 combines broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreens and DNA-defending Ectoin.
Completing the anti-ageing trinity are antioxidants. If any free radicals manage to appear, they are dealt with by Medik8’s world-renowned stable vitamin C and the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase.
The unique formula also has intensive moisturising and revitalising effects to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
