Are night creams just another cosmetic conspiracy to get our money? Isn’t a day cream enough to keep the skin feeling good? Why should you spend your sleeping time on another cream?
These questions constantly make an appearance on a trip to the store as you stare at the wide range of cosmetic supplies beckoning you to buy them. With the constant changing trends and the new emerging products you get skeptical, and wonder which beauty essentials are worth an investment.
So should you buy night cream? We think you should as it promises to be your moisturizer, anti-aging agent, anti-acne cream all in one! Can it really do all that? Let’s find out. These are the many ways your skin benefits overnight from a night cream:
You start aging backwards
If you have not found your way to the fountain of youth then night creams are your best alternatives. These creams are made up of retinol, glycolic acid, salicyclic acid and retinyl acetate. All these elements have age-defying properties that enhance your skin’s turnover (a process where old skin cells are replaced by new ones). When new cells takeover they hide away the age spots, fine lines and wrinkles that mark your age.
Now who wouldn’t want a younger looking skin overnight?
Recharges your skin
Wouldn’t you like to wake up with fresh skin?
While you sleep the night away, the skin cells are actively trying to recharge for the next sun filled day. The night cream helps this process by providing them the essential oils and nutrients that keep the skin healthy. Furthermore, it acts as a moisturizer that helps rehydrate the skin after a draining day under the sun.
Fights off those skin problems while you sleep
There is a reason why most skin remedies for acne are applied before you go to sleep. Night time is crucial for repairing skin damage and pesky problems. With a good night cream you can help accelerate the battle against pimples.
Protects your skin through the night
Did you know that skin damage can happen overnight?
We aren’t talking about the unpredictable pimples sprouting up at night. This is regarding the invisible dangers lurking in your bed. Your bed-sheet, pillows and pillow cases are layered with dead skin cells and dirt that damage your skin. Although you can’t change your sheets every day, you can protect your skin from the aforementioned variables. This is where night creams come in handy. They add a protective layer to your skin that keeps the debris of your shedding skin at a distance.
Hopefully we have cleared your doubts about one item on your cosmetic list. Does the offer seem tempting enough? Night creams do look like the perfect end to your day. They help you wake up with a luminously fresh skin.
So what is keeping you from adding it to your cabinet of beauty supplies?
