Everyone has a skin-care regret or two, even the stars. Actress and filmmaker Elizabeth Banks is coming up on a big birthday, and as she approaches 50, she’s getting candid about skin-care and prioritizing skin health. Joining No7 as the British brand’s very first American celebrity partner, Banks is taking the opportunity to invest in her skin and leave those skin-care regrets behind.

“I’m approaching a milestone birthday soon, and I think I’ve had some skin-care regrets in my life,” Banks tells WWD. “When I say that, what I mean is I just think I haven’t put my skin first. I mean, we all know it — too much sun, not enough hydration, not enough sleep.”

After years of skin-care regret, Banks found that what worked for her was a combination of the healthy practices and the right products.

“I think your best skin starts from within,” Banks explains. “So, sleep and diet, that really matters. I’m trying to take a holistic approach. And then you also need things like No7 to, you know, to take that sort of external approach.”

For Banks, the key was to find a balance between the two.

“There’s the internal and the external,” Banks says. “And I think that, for me, that’s what this moment is about. It’s sort of, ‘How do I incorporate products in a holistic routine?’”

Just like finding balance in her skin-care routine, Banks found a balance in No7 that attracted her to the brand. On the one hand, the most popular skin-care brand in the UK with almost a century of experience, No7 has powerful, tested formulas able to reverse your skincare regrets.

“What I love about No7 is, one, they have science-backed formulas,” Banks explains. “I’m totally a science nerd. And they’re proven to reverse visible signs of skin damage and ageing.”

And on the other hand, they make those powerful formulas affordable.

“The other thing I really love about them, honestly, is it’s an approachable company,” Banks says. “They’re accessible. There’s a true accessibility about them. You know, it feels like it’s for everyone. I feel like I’m getting an incredibly quality product but, frankly, at drugstore prices, and I just love that.”
