No7’s Early Defence GLOW ACTIVATING Serum
In spring, I recommend that my patients refresh and restore their skin’s healthy glow by adding an antioxidant serum containing Vitamin C to their skincare routine.
One of my new favorites is No7’s Early Defence Glow Activating Serum. It contains salicylic acid to unclog your pores and to reveal healthier, glowing skin. I typically advise my patients to use exfoliating ingredients like salicylic acid only twice per week, but this particular product is very gentle and is formulated in such a way that most people will be able to use it daily without causing irritation on the skin.
Moreover, this serum contains Vitamin C and Ginseng – powerful antioxidants that restore radiance by protecting your skin from the harmful free radicals which can zap away your glow. Its rice peptides support your skin’s natural defenses by calming reactivity so that your skin appears more even and radiant. As I tell my patients, you can layer your serum under your sunscreen in the morning or under night cream at night.
I love to recommend this brand because No7’s products are highly effective and reasonably priced. Serums can be so incredibly expensive because they are often one of the most potent, powerful products you will use on your skin. No7’s products are powerful and deliver results at a very affordable price point. For example, this Glow Activating Serum is just under $25 and is available at Target, Walgreens, and Ulta.
As spring and summer approach, I like to wear very minimal makeup and allow my skin to naturally glow. I enjoy using this particular product in the warmer weather because it leaves my skin looking really refreshed and healthy. It’s very lightweight and non-greasy.
Note: This product is hypoallergenic, phthalate-free, dye-free, and aluminum-free. It does have a light scent.
Ideal for the following skin concerns: dullness/uneven tone, fine lines, skin tone improvement, firming.
