There are some pretty good reasons why consider adding a night cream to skincare routine.
Firstly, during the day the skin is in protection mode. It’s doing its best to fight against all the environmental aggressors. Day cream is filled with antioxidants, peptides and usually a high SPF to support it with its protective actions.
At night, skin switches into rest and repair mode, in line with biorhythms and sleep patterns. The purpose of a night cream is to support the skin through that, and make it more efficient at maintaining a healthy complexion. It contains ingredients that aid in the regeneration process, like ceramides, which trigger collagen production, and vitamins A, C, E or B5 that help skin function optimally.
