We review No7’s advanced online portal for selecting the correct skincare
Coco Chanel famously said “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get the face you deserve”.
This may be true, and most of us are guilty of not caring for our skin well enough in the past. Whether you have been a smoker, spent a little too much time in the sun, or slipped into bed once too often while still wearing makeup, by fifty, your skin will be showing signs of ageing.
Although I’ve never smoked or gone to bed in my makeup, I have been guilty of not wearing sun protection every day. It’s only in recent years that I’ve really understood how important this simple step is to protect my skin and now wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without it.
How can you look as young as you feel?
Our lifestyle may be showing on our faces; lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and loss of firmness can be a giveaway, when internally we feel much younger than we look. So, how can we look as young as we feel?
Finding the right products to address our own individual skin concerns is the key to better and younger looking skin but, where to start. You need to understand how skin ages in each area of the face and neck, then you need to choose specific products formulated to tackle the problem. This isn’t as simple as it sounds, there are so many skincare products, all with enticing promises, it’s impossible to know where to start.
The No7 Face Study
Thankfully, learning how skin ages and finding the right products to tackle the problem has just got so much easier. The No7 Face Study is an innovative online website which helps you to really understand what’s happening under your skin and guides you towards the right products to correct any damage you may have made when you were younger.
How does The No7 Face Study work?
Visit The No7 Face Study website and you can see in great detail the signs of ageing on a model’s face that you can completely relate to. Zoom in, pan around, and click on the areas that concern you most to find out how the appearance and structure of the skin changes as you get older.
It’s compelling seeing a face quite similar to your own showing lines, wrinkles and sun damage. And then being able to zoom right in and see the detail clearly, while learning exactly what’s happening to the skin. I’ve always felt that I needed to know what’s actually happening to my skin and now I can see it right in front of me. The No7 Face Study makes it so easy to learn – if only there were tools like this when I was at school I’m sure I would have learnt so much more!
Once you have targeted the areas that concern you most, using The No7 Face Study, you can click through to the specific No7 serums and moisturisers to tackle the problem. It really is that simple.
Why should I use a serum?
You can find out why you should use a serum from The No7 Face Study but, in a nutshell, serums have a high concentration of active ingredients that are easily absorbed into the skin and work quickly; you can often see results in just a few weeks. Serums work well under moisturisers and the No7 range of serums have been formulated to work alongside the No7 day and night creams, giving you an even greater concentration of active ingredients.
No7 clinically proven serums address the key signs of ageing
You may remember that I’ve been using No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum to soften lines and improve my skin tone, making up for those years I didn’t wear sun protection.
The reason I trust No7 is that their serums have been clinically tested and proven to work. In fact, 70 studies involving 5000 women over a period of 9-12 months have been carried out to find out the long-term benefits of using No7 skincare. 80 per cent of these women saw better anti-ageing results when adding No7 into their skincare regime.
As well as the consumer trials, over the past ten years No7 has been studying the effects of ageing on the skin and continue to develop products to slow the visible signs of ageing. The three serums, No7 Protect & Perfect, No7 Lift & Luminate and the recently launched No7 Restore & Renew, not only cover all the areas that we need to treat, they also work for women of all ages.
If you have been finding it hard to know how to choose the right products to improve your skin then you should try the No7 Face Study.
Whether you use a tablet, laptop or PC, The No7 Face Study should come with a warning. It’s completely addictive!
