Win No. 7 Protect & Protect Day Cream

Boots have just launched No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense with 5* UVA/UVB protection.

You may recall that their Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum, it was so popular that Boots had waiting lists for it. Unswayed by the more expensive serums on the market and on my beautician’s advice, I wear a serum for 6 months of the year, and it’s the No 7 one. The reason I mention it is that the same anti-ageing ingredients from this clinically proven No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum are now contained within this moisturizer.

Not only that but this face cream has upped the ante and also combats UV and UVA exposure (exposure to the sun which makes your skin age), which, if ignored, could photo-age you more than twice as quickly as it needs to – eek!

This product has a FIVE star UVA rating. The star rating system is a Boots measurement system which indicates the ratio of protection against burning and ageing contained within their products with regards to UV rays.  Three stars are common but five UVA stars are like that of a top sunscreen.

No. 7’s research shows that such simple exposure to the sun through the car window and even on an autumn day’s exposure in Ireland, can age the skin. 

Also, in a No. 7 survey of women, 83% did not realise that they should be protecting their skin from the UVA rays outside their annual holiday in order to prevent photo ageing. Whilst 65% of women use, and actively seek out, moisturisers with SPF (predominately a measure of UVB protection), just 14% look for day creams with UVA protection.  

No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense moisturiser with SPF 15 reduces UV exposure by up to 90%. Analysis also suggests that using a product with high UVA protection every day more than halve the rate that skin visibly ages.
