Keep your skin soothed and hydrated with No7’s new range of anti-ageing after suns

Looking after your skin whilst away is essential especially during the months of winter sun. It doesn’t matter what the temperature feels like outside, sun exposure can still contribute to the visible signs of ageing.

So why not try an after sun that not only soothes, but targets deep lines and wrinkles.  Introducing the new No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Recovery Aftersun Lotion and No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Facial Recovery Aftersun Balm, which are both powered by Matrixyl 3000 plus™. This unique and concentrated peptide technology means you get the benefits of an aftersun whilst helping restore younger looking skin.

The soothing and comforting Shea and Cocoa butters moisturise and helps to reduce skin redness whilst the herbal extracts of Ginseng, Mulberry and Vitamin C, are anti-oxidants to help rebuild the skins defences against the damaging effects of the sun, and reduce the signs of sun-induced ageing.

No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Recovery Aftersun Lotion has an intensely moisturising formula which is easily absorbed, providing the necessary 24hr moisturisation after a day in the sun. Whilst the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Facial Recovery Aftersun Balm can be used after sun exposure for soothing hydration, it can also be applied as a moisturising, anti-ageing face mask, for an even longer lasting cooling effect.

No7 Advisor Samantha Greeves said: “We have all been caught out in the winter, myself included, by forgetting to apply sun protection and mistaking sunburn for windburn. To soothe the affected area, apply the lotion liberally, in circular motions after sun exposure. For a cooling, soothing treat on inflamed skin, store your after sun in the fridge!”

  • No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Recovery Aftersun Lotion 200ml, £12.95,
  • No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Facial Recovery Aftersun Balm, 50ml, £12.00 Available in Boots from 30th December.
