- What is the difference between night and day creams?
As the name suggests, day creams are made to be applied in the morning. They tend to be lighter than night creams to layer nicely under your makeup without leaving your skin feeling greasy. Most daytime moisturisers are typically boosted by antioxidants that work to prevent free radical damage, ensuring protection against environmental stressors.
They’re also often infused with SPF that shields your skin from the sun while you’re out and about during the day to help prevent dark spots, skin discolouration and slow down the development of wrinkles.
Night creams, on the other hand, are applied at bedtime and are richer that daytime moisturisers. That’s because night cream formulations really focus on aiding the skin’s natural repair processes that take place at night, replenishing your skin while you sleep. For your p.m. routine, look for rejuvenating ingredients like peptides, northern birch water and hyaluronic acid that hydrate, restore and plump up the skin.
