Ageing is a natural process, and one that we believe should be celebrated and embraced. That said, our skin can benefit from some specialist support and TLC to help it look and feel its best, and many people also want to slow the visible signs of ageing, from wrinkles and fine lines to dark spots.

Learn how to reduce the signs of ageing, soothe dry skin and look more refreshed with No7’s top tips for creating an anti-ageing skincare routine.

When should I start using anti-ageing products?

It’s never too early to start protecting your skin and boosting its natural defences – prevention is better than cure, after all. Our Early Defence range is recommended for those aged 20-35, while our Protect & Perfect range is ideal for those aged 30-45. Lift & Luminate products are targeted for use from 45-60 years old, while Restore & Renew offers clinically proven results for those who are 60+.

Add our Laboratories range into your skincare routine at any age to supercharge your results.

Your anti-ageing routine: morning and night

Step 1: Cleanse your skin

Cleansing properly is crucial for removing makeup, oil and impurities. Try No7 Lift & Luminate Dual Action Cleansing Exfoliator. Formulated with a Vitamin Complex of C, E and B5, the gentle exfoliating particles accelerate surface skin cell turnover for smoother, more radiant skin.

Step 2: Add an age-defying serum

After cleansing, smooth on a serum to deliver a daily dose of active ingredients to your skin. No7 Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum contains a 7x concentration of our age-defying peptide complex, Matrixyl 3000 Plus™. This collagen boosting serum is proven to reduce the appearance of even the deepest, most stubborn lines and wrinkles.

Over time, damage that has developed under the skin becomes increasingly visible – but with No7 Future Renew™ Damage Reversal Serum, you can give your skin a second chance. This lightweight, powerful serum has been developed by world-leading scientists to reverse the visible signs of skin damage, including fine lines and wrinkles, uneven tone and texture, dry skin and the feeling of lost elasticity.*

Step 3: Protect with SPF in the morning

Too much sun exposure can accelerate the signs of ageing, from loss of elasticity to the development of dark spots on the skin. No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Facial Suncare SPF50+ provides triple protection against sun damage, along with a skin brightening complex and Matrixyl 3000 Plus™ to maintain a more youthful appearance.

Backed by scientific research and skincare experts, No7 Future Renew™ SPF 40 Day Cream is proven to target visible signs of skin damage, and help prevent new damage from forming. It works to reverse lost elasticity and dryness for skin that feels deeply moisturised for up to 72 hours.* Exposure to the sun’s UV is the top cause of accelerated skin ageing and can lead to visible skin damage over time. Now, with No7’s new Future Renew™ range, you can reverse these visible signs while shielding your delicate skin from the sun. This lightweight yet intensely moisturising formula contains SPF40 to provide UV protection, along with a powerful, unique peptide blend that works to support the skin’s natural self-repair process.

Step 4: Lock in moisture all day (or night) long

Keep skin hydrated with a multi-benefit day and night cream. No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Day Cream locks in moisture for 24 hours via a hydrating blend of Hibiscus Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid, for firmer, visibly younger looking skin.

In the evening, apply No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Night Cream to help support your skin’s natural repair process. With intensely hydrating Shea Butter and radiance-boosting Vitamins A, C and E, it’s beauty sleep in a jar.

Developed by world-leading scientists, the new No7 Future Renew™ Night Cream is proven to reverse the visible signs of skin damage while you sleep, including uneven tone and texture, dryness and loss of elasticity.

*Consumer study.

What else can I do to minimise the signs of ageing?

A healthy, active lifestyle, adequate hydration and a balanced diet can do wonders when it comes to your skin. Ensure you get at least 8 hours of sleep each night to help your skin recover and repair, reduce stress where possible, and cut back on your alcohol and sugar intake to give your skin every advantage against the key signs of ageing.
