The Best Treatments For Aging Skin

The Best Treatments For Aging Skin

While aging is a natural process, it’s no secret that most of us would prefer to minimize the signs of aging in our skin: wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Luckily, we intervene with skincare to help reduce the appearance of signs of aging – it’s all about choosing the right treatment for your skin type and concerns. There are countless products labelled ‘age-defying’ and ‘anti-wrinkle’, but what’s behind these claims? Let’s explore a few key ingredients to look out for, and our top anti-aging products to incorporate into your anti-aging skincare routine.


Protecting your skin from the sun is absolutely essential in helping slow down the development of signs of aging. This is because exposure to the sun’s UV rays results in photoaging – wrinkling, loss of elasticity, and dark spots on the skin. UV radiation causes collagen (the protein needed for healthy, plump skin) to break down at a much faster rate than usual. Thus, it is important to incorporate products with sun protection into your daily skincare routine.

Try No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Day Cream SPF 30 for broad spectrum sun protection. It’s formulated with No7’s powerful anti-wrinkle peptide technology, as well as hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C for skin tone that appears more even, wrinkles appear visibly reduced, and firmer looking skin. Alternatively, try No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream SPF 30. This award-winning day cream hydrates skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just two weeks.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that supports skin’s natural renewal process. Applying it topically to the skin regularly can help reduce the appearance of the common signs of aging, such as dull skin and dark spots.

To restore skin back to its healthy glow, try No7 Youthful Vitamin C Essence. This 2-week treatment contains pure Vitamin C, which helps skin to look brighter, skin tone appear more even and skin texture look improved. The results speak for themselves – 91% of women agreed their skin tone looked more radiant after 2 weeks*. We also recommend No7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream. Like our namesake Day Cream, it contains No7’s powerful anti-wrinkle peptide formula and Vitamin C, but is designed for night-time use to help restore skin’s moisture while you sleep.

To target the appearance of dark spots directly, try No7 Laboratories Dark Spot Correcting Booster Serum. It’s formulated with No7’s unique Lightening complex with Vitamin C, emblica and sophora to deliver fast, visible results.

Hyaluronic Acid

Our bodies actually produce hyaluronic acid naturally. However, when applied topically, this skincare miracle can work wonders to reduce the appearance of signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, helping skin retain moisture and slowing down the speed at which water evaporates from the surface. This is especially important as we get older, as our skin loses moisture at a more rapid rate, causing skin to become loose and saggy.

To incorporate hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine, try No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum. With its hyaluronic acid and hibiscus formula, coupled with Vitamin C, this serum is clinically proven to address the appearance of wrinkles and lack of firmness.  92% of women who used the serum reported firmer skin!** Alternatively, try No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum. It also contains hyaluronic acid to help skin appear lifted, but also uses a rice protein and alfalfa complex to help skin maintain its elasticity. After 4 weeks, 96% of users showed a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.***


Retinol’s proven effects against the signs of aging make it a staple in an effective anti-aging skincare routine. Retinol encourages surface skin cell turnover, resulting in a much more radiant complexion. It’s also been proven to reduce the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles, making skin tone appear more even. Retinol does however, make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so make sure to wear sunscreen daily!

Try No7 Advanced Retinol 1.5% Complex Night Concentrate. We’ve combined our advanced peptide technology with retinol for maximum anti-aging results, to leave skin looking younger and healthier. Through continued use, skin appears firmer, brighter and more radiant, while pores and skin texture appear more refined.

Whether you choose to incorporate one or two of these No7 treatments into your daily skincare routine, or whether you build a new anti-aging routine around these products, you’re sure to notice, with continued use, a reduction in the appearance of signs of aging.
