THE SOLUTION: A Boots No7 skincare regimen for every skin type!
Knowing skincare as well as Boots does, they made sure to offer their Beautiful Skin regimen in two varieties - Normal/Dry and Normal/Oily. For the Boots No7 Beautiful Skin regimen to work properly first you have to identify which type of skin you have!
Generally people fall into the category of either: normal/ combination skin, oily skin, and dry skin. If you have oily skin you should look for skincare that gives a mattifying finish. If you have dry skin normal/dry formulas will give you extreme moisture. No matter what type of skin you have the Beautiful Skin line has products perfectly formulated to fit your needs.
We chatted with Boots' beauty experts to find out what makes this skincare regimen so special and they assured us that every Beautiful Skin product features protecting and energizing Vitamins E and C, and a skin-balancing mineral combination of Magnesium, Zinc, Magnesium, and Sodium.
For Normal/Oily Skin
For those that fall under this category, you most likely have an oily t-zone, this excess oil production can lead to blackheads or pesky whiteheads. That's why the Boots Beautiful Skin collection for Normal/Oily skin has mattifying properties to keep your shine in check!
STEP 1: Cleansing Water
Cleansing water has been the rage in Europe for years. Why the hype? You can wash your fash - no water necessary! This formula is perfect to pack for a long flight, or is an easy, gentle way to remove makeup after a long night out. Cleansing water is toner and face wash in one, a safe way to go when purifying the skin of dirt, oil, and makeup. A must have for anyone with normal / oily skin.
STEP 2: Foaming Cleanser
Boots' foaming cleanser stops shiny skin, removes makeup, and tightens pores. Its multivitamin/ mineral blend hydrates and energizes the skin giving a nice glow (without making you look shiny, of course). Enriched with zinc, this formula helps to regulate the skin’s oil production - like we said - this line is absolutely perfect for anyone with oily skin.
STEP 3: Toner
This toner is a miracle in a bottle for those with acne or oil-prone skin. The skin is naturally acidic, however, after cleansing the pH level of the skin is usually disrupted, causing the skin to work overtime to restore the balance -- usually resulting in oil. Using a toner after cleanser gently restores these pH levels. Toner also closes pores, reducing the penetration of impurities into the skin.
STEP 4: Night Cream
Boots' night cream hydrates and mattifies the skin so you can keep the shine far, far away! “Created to help your oily skin behave like normal skin,” this will definitely keep your skin in check. A light, non-pore blocking formula works in harmony with your skin to rebalance oil and production. Nothing like a little night prep, so you're ready to take on the next day.
For Normal/Dry Skin
Dry skin often feels tight, especially after cleansing, and can lack that radiance factor. Dry skin can also be subject to fine lines, flaking and red patches. The Boot's Normal/Dry Skin line aims to nourish and hydrate your skin while helping to awaken your natural, glowing complexion!.
STEP 1: Cleansing Oil
Oil to cleanse your skin?! That’s right! This lightweight formula melts makeup and impurities instantly. Oil is great for nourishing dry spots. Enriched with vitamin E and rosehip oil, it protects, hydrates, and locks in moisture for a healthy, radiant glow.
STEP 2: Melting Gel Cleanser
The melting gel cleanser develops into a non-drying oil to protect the skin’s natural oil levels, allowing the skin to retain it’s moisture. This cleanser turns from gel to oil, and warm water turns it into milk for easier rinsing. Infused with rosehip oil, this cleanser locks in moisture for those targeting dry skin.
STEP 3: Refreshing Toner
If huge, open pores are your nemesis this is the toner for you. Toners, in general, can dry out skin, but this formula is gentle, leaving the skin with silky moisture. Boot’s refreshing toner works in harmony with your skin to leave it perfectly toned, diminishing the appearance of pores.
STEP 4: Night Cream
For those of you with dry skin, night is where the magic happens! At night your skin is in the rest and repair mode, so why not help your skin while you are sleeping?! This formula contains ingredients that aid in the cell regeneration process, triggering collagen production, leaving your skin able to fight against environmental aggressors during the day. Replenishing your skin with moisture, Boots' night cream gives your skin that extra kick to last all day.
