Do I Need a Night Cream?
If you're wondering, “Can’t I just use the best moisturiser from my morning skincare routine at night?” You could. But here's why you shouldn't.
Our skin behaves quite differently while we sleep, so your nighttime moisturising cream needs to be tailored to those needs. In particular, our skin at night is affected by our circadian rhythm. The skin's blood flow rate increases in the late afternoon and evening. Higher melatonin levels at night are associated with hair growth, suppression of UV damage and better wound healing.
This means that your skin goes into repair mode while you’re sleeping. Your skin's permeability is also higher in the evening than in the morning, leading to increased moisture loss. This is why your nightly skincare routine is so important.
What’s the difference between day and night cream?
It’s all about consistency and ingredient type.
Day creams tend to be lightweight and may even contain an SPF to protect your skin from the sun. They should also be less greasy, which is ideal for make-up application.
Night creams tend to be heavier, with no SPF, and include ingredients intended to repair and treat the skin overnight. Night creams are the perfect time to introduce some anti-aging benefits into your skincare routine, through the use of ingredients like collagen, retinol and peptides.
Due to their slow-absorbing nature, night creams can gradually penetrate the skin throughout the night. This means they’re able to moisturise, repair and rebalance the skin.
