Day and night care: The difference

Are you one of those women who has tubes and jars of cream for day and night facial care? Do you ever wonder whether using just one cream would be enough?

It is actually true that our whole body and thus our skin also has its own biorhythm. Thus, the needs of our facial skin during the day and at night are completely different: During the day our skin should be protected from many different environmental influences such as stress, UV rays, dust, temperature fluctuations, make-up and wind. During the night it has time to recover from the stress of the day.

So that our skin looks fresh and glowing, your daytime care should do one thing: In addition to being protective it should also provide enough hydration, revitalize the skin, remove shine and reveal a healthy complexion. During sleep however cell regeneration kicks into high gear and the body can completely focus on regeneration. Thus, the term “beauty sleep” is more accurate than you may think. Circulation to the skin is greater at night, meaning that valuable nutrients can be better absorbed. Skin has time to recover from everyday stress and by using a nourishing night cream it helps you recharge your batteries for the day.

Perfectly suited for facial skin care

Because of these completely different needs, day and night care that is individualized to your type of skin is absolutely essential.

When you remove the creams from the two jars there is already a clear difference in consistency. The night cream is richer and thicker than the day cream, and creates a light film on the skin to optimally support its nightly regeneration process. On the other hand the light daytime formula is completely absorbed into the skin. This is also good because who wants shiny skin? A greasy texture that leaves a film on the skin during the day would thus be unpleasant and annoying. If the day cream is also used as a foundation for make-up it should not be lubricating otherwise it will clog pores and cause pimples and blackheads.
