Upgrade Your Skincare With No7 And IMAGE – Louise Stokes

24th May 2017

A?change in season is the best possible time to rethink your skincare routine. If?like us, you’ve been working too hard, stressing too much, compounding the above with too little sleep, and overcompensating with too much wine or a poor diet, it is time to make a change. Fortunately, the solution is closer than you think, thanks to No7. Catering not necessarily for the age you are, but the life stage you are at, No7 created three different regimes that are easy to follow, ensuring that whatever your skin needs, you’ll be able to identify the products that will make a real difference to your complexion. This means that ageing doesn’t have to be accompanied by dread. Once armed with the right skincare regime, you can embrace the process with confidence, positivity, and a whole new outlook.


LIFESTYLE:?In addition to 37-year-old Louise’s busy career, she is also a wife and mother to two young children. ?I worked in New York for five years, and during that time my skin got a battering because I was obsessed with being tan. Nowadays, I travel a lot to both Paris and New York, buying for the store. I don’t really have a ?normal? day, and it tends to be seven days a week. I am usually in the store three or four days, but I’m ?on? seven days because of social media. We’re a niche brand and it’s an extremely competitive We’re a niche brand and it’s an extremely competitive industry, but I do take time out. I’m passionate about healthy eating, but you can’t do it all, so I love Marks & Spencer.?

SKIN CONCERNS: Louise manages a busy lifestyle, so it’s about keeping it simple while also being consistent. She regrets the years before she discovered the benefits of SPF and wishes she could turn back time. Her skin is a little dry, and given her busy lifestyle, she’s looking for a simple solution that doesn’t involve too many products.

No7 SYSTEM RECOMMENDED:?The Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced regime, which consists of a serum followed by night or day cream and an eye cream.

RESULTS: ?What I really love is how easy it is to use, so it becomes part of your morning and evening routine, even if you are busy. I love the eye cream, but especially the serum, as I usually find serums too oily for my skin, and this one feels really luxurious and nourishing.?
