Rejuvenate While You Sleep With a Night Cream Apr 10, 2017 by Sarah (Day Styles)
Buying a night cream sometimes feels like there’s just one more product that we have to buy, but many people don’t know the real advantages of night creams. It might sound like a gimmick, but that’s not true. There are many advantages for your skin when you find the right night cream.
The Key Ingredients
We know that skin care products can be confusing with tons of unknown chemicals listed in small print. When looking for a night cream, just look for the most natural and active ingredients you can find. Some examples of ingredients to look for are rejuvenating compounds like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A, retinol (a concentrated form of Vitamin A), and amino acids. You should also look for all-natural oils and butter that are known to clean and beautify your skin, specifically jojoba oil, rose oil, and Shea butter. The natural cleanser alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) is extracted from citrus and lactic acids to scrub the dirt on your skin. Anti-aging components are another excellent ingredient, such as collagen. Any combination of these ingredients will help your skin stay fresh and beautiful.
Rest and Rejuvenate
Nighttime is the best time for your skin’s regeneration. Your skin cells absorb active ingredients better at nighttime than it does during the day. When you use a night cream, it helps to clear dirt from your face, renews skin cells, and helps prevent any tissues from being damaged while you sleep. Night cream provides your skin with an even layer of moisture no matter how the air feels in your bedroom, preventing dry patches. It soothes your face and ensures that your skin has a more even complexion and finer texture. It helps boost collagen levels in your skin, actually improving elasticity, which helps in keeping your skin from aging and sagging,
Application Made Easy
When you’re choosing a night cream, try and make sure the cream isn’t too thick and heavy for your skin as a thick cream tends to clog pores easier than a lighter cream and a thick cream actually makes it hard for your skin to breathe during the night. Also, ensure your cream is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic, especially if you have sensitive skin. If you have allergies, consult your doctor, just in case. When applying a night cream, there is a certain routine you should follow before hand. Always make sure you wash your face before you apply any creams, and ensure that you totally remove the makeup from the day. Start by using only a dime-sized amount of cream in your hand and spread it evenly over your face. Use an upward circular motion to apply the cream avoiding contact with your eye and eyelid. Massage into your face until it’s totally dissolved and your all set. Find the right cream and it can really help protect and rejuvenate your skin - and all while you sleep!
