Night time is when skin does its heavy lifting. Like the rest of the body, skin does the bulk of its repairing, restoring, and regenerating while we sleep, so night creams are focused on moisture and recovery. They contain the most powerful, slow-absorbing ingredients that are designed to penetrate over the course of several hours, working their magic.
The result is that night creams are often richer, thicker, or heavier than day creams. They may include ingredients like retinoids (Vitamin A) and glycolic acid to enhance collagen production, skin smoothing, and even out pigmentation by boosting cell turnover. These ingredients are usually exclusive to night formulas because they can make your skin sensitive to the sun or cause hyper-pigmentation.
Like all other skincare, there are so many varieties to choose from creams, cream-gels, oils to leave on masks so if your still confused to forget to reach out to your beauty therapist for a skin consultation to ensure your getting the correct product for what you and your skin needs.
