Difference between day and night cream

Creams are an important part of any skin routine, both day and night but it has been a very debatable and interesting topic for most - why do you need both day and night creams?

Well, to understand the benefits and importance, we need to know what is the difference and purpose of the day and night creams, so let’s start with it!!

Day Creams

During the day, our skin is exposed to sunrays, pollution or different foreign particles when you’re out there shopping, or going to work. Not only do you need a cream that protects you from the effects, but also heal damaged skin from prolonged exposure.

Day creams have anti-oxidants, anti-aging properties, some of them even have caffeine to make the skin look refreshed. They are usually made of non-greasy formulas so that your skin doesn’t lose its shine and glow.

It’s the perfect mix of everything that makes them worth including in your daily routine.  One of the most important benefits of a day cream is that it helps with moisturizing, so if you’re heading outside, don’t forget to use some on the face for ever glowing skin.

Night Creams

The purpose of night creams are completely different, on the one side where day creams help in protecting the skin, night cream help in the recreation process.

Night creams are made for doing the construction work for the skin, which means, all the repairing, restoring, rejuvenating and regenerating are done with a mixture of highly potent ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, retinol, etc

The formulas are designed so that the skin absorbs the slow moisture at night and when you awake your skin would be all refreshed and hydrated. Night creams are usually heavier, they slowly penetrate the skin, have a richer composition and go deeper into the skin.

Do we need both?

Now that you know what they do, the real question arises whether you should use both.  The answer is yes, but don’t forget that since both the creams serve a different purpose and are applied at different times both are necessary.
