With the reduced sleep and increased stress of my little bundle, it is no surprise that fine lines and wrinkles have appeared, especially around my eyes.
You can't have missed the hype around the original No 7 Protect and Perfect serum, which has now been superseded by the Intense Advance version which has now been expanded into a complete skin care regime. To try an combat my tired skin, I've been putting No 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced day (£24.99 Boots) , night (£24.99 Boots) and eye (£17 Boots) creams to the test over the last few weeks.
The major benefit I have noticed is that the skin on my chin which was dry and a bit flakey (how gross do I sound!) is now really happy, which I put down to the hydrating benefits of the increased levels of Hyaluronic Acid and the broad spectrum antioxidants which naturalise any free radicals.
I have also been suffering from dryness around my eyes and lips and again this has noticeably improved after using the eye cream in both of these zones - the skin around your lips is really similar to that around your eyes, so a top tip is to use your eye cream here too, which will also help reduced lip wrinkles.
All of the creams contain No 7's new most concentrated peptide technology which helps to target wrinkles and prevent new ones too. I do think the secret to banishing my wrinkles is a sleep of more than three hours at one time, but I've been impressed at how my skin has improved since using it.
