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. Keep reading to discover the four key anti-aging ingredients to look out for, as we recommend our top anti-aging products to incorporate into your anti-aging skincare routine. 

1. SPF 

Does sunscreen prevent wrinkles? 

Protecting your skin from the sun is absolutely essential in helping to slow down the development of signs of aging, as exposure to the sun’s UV rays can result in photoaging – wrinkling, loss of elasticity and dark spots.  

UV radiation can also cause collagen (the protein needed for healthy, plump skin) to break down at a much faster rate than usual. As such, it’s important to incorporate products with sun protection into your daily anti-aging skincare routine. 

Best anti-aging moisturizer with SPF 

To ensure your skin gets maximum protection, use an SPF 30 or above and re‐apply throughout the day. 

2. Vitamin C 

Is Vitamin C anti-aging? 

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that may help support the skin’s natural renewal process. Regularly applying it topically can help to reduce the appearance of common signs of aging, including dull skin and dark spots. 

Anti-aging Vitamin C serum 

To restore skin’s healthy glow, try No7 Radiance+ 15% Vitamin C Serum. Formulated with 15% Vitamin C, this anti-aging Vitamin C serum improves the appearance of skin texture and tone, helping to reduce discoloration and dark spots. With continued use, skin looks healthy and brightest with a dewy, youthful-looking glow.  

Alternatively, 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. 

Vitamin C anti-aging cream  

No7 Radiance+ Vitamin C Daily Brightening Moisturizer is a Vitamin C anti-aging cream that delivers revitalizing hydration and helps to replenish lost moisture. Its fast-absorbing formula is infused with brightening Vitamin C to transform the appearance of dull, tired-looking skin.  

When used as part of an anti-aging skincare routine, skin looks healthier and more radiant, and feels nourished and restored. 

3. Hyaluronic acid 

Is hyaluronic acid anti-aging? 

When applied topically, hyaluronic acid can work wonders to reduce the appearance of signs of aging. It’s a humectant that not only helps skin to retain moisture, but also slows down the speed at which water evaporates from the surface.  

Adding hyaluronic acid to your anti-aging skincare routine is especially important, as aging skin loses moisture at a more rapid rate, becoming loose and saggy. 

Anti-aging hyaluronic acid skincare 

To incorporate hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine, try No7 Advanced Ingredients Hyaluronic Acid Capsules. Proven to instantly hydrate the skin and smooth the appearance of wrinkles, these powerful skincare capsules deliver a targeted dose of hyaluronic acid for instant and long-lasting hydration. With each use, expression lines and wrinkles appear visibly plumped.  

Alternatively, incorporate No7 HydraLuminous Water Concentrate into your anti-aging skincare routine. Powered by pure hyaluronic acid and HydraDrench Complex, this light concentrate provides an instant burst of moisture and long-lasting hydration to leave skin feeling refreshed.  

4. Retinol 

Is retinol anti-aging? 

Retinol’s proven effects against the signs of aging make it a staple in an effective anti-aging skincare routine. Retinol helps support skin’s natural renewal process, 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 be sure to wear sunscreen daily.  

Anti-aging retinol skincare  

To enjoy the anti-aging benefits of retinol, try No7 Advanced Retinol 1.5% Complex Night Concentrate. Combining our advanced peptide technology with retinol, this anti-aging retinol concentrate leaves skin looking younger and healthier. With continued use, skin appears firmer, brighter and more radiant, while pores and skin texture look more refined. 

No7 Pure Retinol Night Cream would also make a great addition to an anti-aging skincare routine. With a unique combination of .025% pure retinol, No7’s famous Matrixyl 3000+™ and soothing shea butter and bisabolol, this anti-aging retinol night cream helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores for skin that looks and feels younger, firmer, hydrated, and more even toned. 

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.
