Every woman has a different approach towards a daily beauty regime. While some women simply follow a daily cleansing and moisturizing once a day and while some on the other hand have a full military to take care of their beauty like purpose specific creams, serums & toners.

Before I explain any further about how night creams are importance, let me first tell you all about how a Night Cream is different from a Day Cream:

Day Cream

You all must know how much our skin is prone to be damaged by UV rays, pollution, environmental stress & makeup.

All this daily basis risk of skin damage during the day time focuses on Day creams which are designed to protect and support our skin. Day creams contain SPF to prevent against Sun damage & photo aging, good amount of anti oxidants to fight against free radicals.

The day creams acts like smooth, oil – free base for easy foundation & blending.

Night Creams

Our skin does a lot of work during night. It is the time when our skin does a lot of repairing & restoring work while our body rests. The night creams are more focused on moisture & recovery and contain the most powerful, slow absorbing moisturizers which penetrate in the skin during the several night hours. They do not contain any sun damage fighting ingredients instead they contain high amounts of anti – aging ingredients like retinol and glycolic acid.

As a result of such purposes and ingredients, the night creams are richer, thicker & heavier than your day creams.

Why Use Both Creams?

So now since you know the difference between both the Day and Night creams, it becomes easy to answer this question.

Neither a day cream nor a night cream can be skipped or replaced with each other.

Both the creams have their own purpose and texture. You cannot go without a sun protection in the day time and similarly cannot go without a restoring treatment during the night time.

Age is a crucial factor to be kept in mind while choosing for your cream, since different age – different skin demands for different care.

  • If you are in your 20s pick for a light textured, moisturizing night cream which is rich in antioxidants so that it protects your skin from free radicals.
  • If you are in your 30s pick a richer anti –ageing night cream which helps to regenerate the skin, prevent wrinkles and reduce fine lines.
  • If you are in your 40s always use a firming, anti-wrinkle night cream which helps to restore skin and treat deeper wrinkles, fine lines and skin sagging.
