Question: I get some really dark patches on my face and I’ve learned that this is caused by pigmentation and probably made worse by the amount I’ve exposed my skin to the sun over the years. This has also given me some really bad lines around my eyes and I’d like to find a cream to treat both types of problems. My girlfriend swears by a British brand called Boots No 7. Will it be suitable for my skin condition?
Answer: BootsNo7 is a long-established retail company in the U.K. and is well-known for its range of cosmetics and skin care lines. They have had a lot of good press recently regarding some of their anti-aging products which are available internationally.
Anyone seeking information on the range of Boots’ skin care products can look on the company’s official website which gives a reasonable amount of information. Although the individual products are fairly priced, they are designed to be used as part of a whole regime, involving a number of different treatments. However, Boots No 7 does contain some excellent ingredients, mostly natural plants extracts, minerals and vitamins. The Age Renewal Serum for example would be perfect for your problem as it contains the sea plant Agarum Cribosum, a proven skin lightener, plus a number of anti-oxidant ingredients that will help rejuvenate the damaged skin cells.
If you do shop for an anti-wrinkle product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively promote long-term improvements on the appearance of wrinkles and an overall healthy complexion. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
