Posted for Skin Care On July 13, 2009


At night, when we go to sleep, our skin stays awake and continues working. Instead of its prime role of protection, it conducts the repair process at night. A variety of mechanisms are performed to address the effect of external stressors like pollution, ultraviolet rays of the sun and make-up residue.

The skin care market abounds with products that are supposed to be applied on the skin at night. Night creams can be very beneficial because they work on the skin while you are sleeping, i.e. when the skin is undergoing its natural repair process.

Difference between Day Creams and Night Creams

Day creams are designed to hydrate and protect the skin against external stressors like dirt, pollution, sunlight and ultraviolet rays of the sun.

Night creams have special ingredients like Vitamins and anti-aging components that work during the night to nourish the skin. These products are generally thicker and more concentrated as compared to day creams because you do not need to apply make-up over it. Night creams are especially designed to work at night when the skin is at rest and not being exposed to external exposure.

The cell regeneration power of the skin is more active during the night. Thus night creams make the best of the time and help the skin in the repair process. It heals the damage caused by daily wear and tear as a result of pollution, make-up and ultraviolet light.

Benefits of Night Creams
Night creams contain powerful anti-aging ingredients that help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They also help control the shine on the skin surface and brighten the complexion. In addition, it provides the skin with intensive moisture and makes it soft and supple. This is why Night creams are used as effective dry skin treatments.

Night creams are also extremely beneficial for the sensitive contours around the eyes. The skin around the eyes is extremely thin and fragile as compared to skin on other parts of the body. It contains less hydrolipidic film and lesser amounts of sebaceous glands. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines are more visible there. Night creams moisturize the area and supply it with powerful anti aging ingredients that cure the aging signs.
