Is there any point using a separate cream if it’s day time and night time? When we were teens, we wouldn’t bother, but as we get older and are clinging on to smooth skin, we’re willing to try anything, and that can mean finding out why night cream is a thing.
According to More.com, day creams are designed for wearing around inside and outside. During the day, skin is subject to damaging UV rays, pollution, environmental stresses, and makeup, so creams designed for use during the day are primarily focused on protection and support. They contain SPF to prevent burning and photoaging, antioxidants to fight free radicals, and ingredients like caffeine to make skin look energized and firm. Day creams are usually designed to be worn under cosmetics, so they have light, nongreasy formulas that are absorbed quickly and allow pores to breathe. They provide a smooth, oil-free canvas for foundation to glide on smoothly.
Night time is when skin does its heavy lifting. Like the rest of the body, skin does the bulk of its repairing, restoring, and regenerating while we sleep, so night creams are focused on moisture and recovery. They contain the most powerful, slow-absorbing moisturizers that are designed to penetrate over the course of several hours; since there’s little to no concern about sun exposure, they also contain the highest concentrations of anti-aging compounds ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid, and hyaluronic acid, which are able to do their work without interference from sunscreens.
The result is that night creams are often richer, thicker, or heavier than day creams. Of course, we don’t mind much, since most of us don’t wear makeup to bed, and the cream is usually absorbed by the time we wake up.
