Why You Should Use A Night Cream

Jan 18, 2016 by Sarah (Day Styles)

Some people feel like using a night cream means there’s just another product that they have to buy, a product that may or may not help their skin. Many people don’t know the real advantages of night creams, and even more people believe it’s a gimmick, but that’s not true! There are so many advantages for your skin when you find the right night cream, and we have them listed here for you.

The Key Ingredients

We know that skin care products are full of confusing chemicals in tiny 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, which work best. 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.

Experience Real Benefits

There are many benefits to using a night cream. 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!
