You might have heard about the creams which make your face look fairer instantly or keeps you oil free for longer time during the day.
But what if you have an option of getting a brighter and flawless skin that too with a simple trick every day?
The answer is…Night Cream. Don’t use one yet? Then you must know that using a night cream regularly actually makes your skin bright, beautiful and wrinkle free.
Now that we have your complete attention here is what you need to know.
What does a night cream do exactly?
A night cream is typically a thick cream which is supposed to be applied on the face before you sleep. The ingredients repair your skin cells internally since we all know, our body repairs itself when we sleep. During night, we have the highest metabolic rate and which applies to the repairing of skin cells too. And these nights creams work on the skin and gives all the essential nutrients needed to make the skin healthier by morning.
Simply put, there are two reasons why a night cream is important:
- TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss) is greatest at night. A night cream can prevent that kind of dehydration.
- The body’s cells are replenished with nutrients and are being regenerated at night, so this is the time to optimize the delivery of the raw materials the skin needs.
Should you use one?
Yes, that is if you want brighter, even toned skin every day. And also if you can’t spend too much time or money on parlors and skin treatments, a night cream is the best solution. Simply pick a night cream according to your skin type and requirement and you are ready to a skin makeover.
We recommend: Skin care range from Votre6.
When is the ideal time to apply nigh cream?
After cleansing and toning the night cream plays the role of a moisturizer in the night. Ideally apply the cream half an hour before you hit the bed. Apply with slow round motions with your fingertips in order to spread the cream evenly. Avoid contact with eyes or eye lids. Stress on the fine lines if you have any.
