Why Should You Use A Day and Night Moisturiser

More marketing and spread of awareness and also the willingness on our part to take care of our skin and invest in it have led us to follow, if not all, at least the basic skincare routine. We follow the three steps: cleansing, toning and moisturising and during the day time also apply sunscreen. We are very well aware of how these three steps are necessary to keep the skin healthy and radiant. Besides this, we know that the skincare routine just does not consist of these. The Korean skincare regime has around 10 steps. I know, that's quite a lot. One may find it pretty difficult to follow, but if one is looking to achieve glass-like skin then one has to be ready to make time and patience to be able to follow all the steps. 

Even the very first step of skincare, i.e, cleansing, is divided into two. First cleaning it with an oil-based cleanser so as to remove the makeup products and sunscreen. The second is to cleanse with a gentle or foaming cleanser to get rid of dirt and sweat. 

Coming back to our regular skincare, regardless of the time of day, the majority of people generally stick to the same skincare regimen. But it's crucial to pay attention to your skin's requirements. The demands of your skin change from day to night. Your skin requires protection throughout the day and restoration at night.

Your skin requires protection from the elements like dust, filth, pollution, and sun damage during the day. Therefore, it is important to use a day cream that provides protection from the sun's harmful UV rays and has antioxidant-rich compounds that can combat free radicals responsible for skin damage.

Your skin regenerates and repairs itself at night when it is also more susceptible to skin care products. Therefore, a night cream that nourishes your skin deeply, and prevents and reverses ageing effects including fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity, is essential.

Different problems call for various solutions! Because of this, your skincare regimen should include both daytime and nighttime face creams to adequately protect, heal, and rejuvenate your skin.


Day Creams

The day creams are specially formulated to be lightweight in texture. They do not make the skin feel heavy and greasy, nonetheless, it provides ample hydration to sustain throughout the day. Its main function is to protect your skin from sun damage and repair it. They easily absorb into the skin giving way to a well-prepped base for the application of makeup. 

One must also know that day creams do not contain active ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid or other ingredients that cause irritation when exposed to the sun.

Day creams have ingredients like Vitamin C, which brightens the skin and also Salicylic acid which protects the skin from sun damage like sunburn.

Night Creams

The main function of night creams is to repair your skin while you are asleep. It mainly contains active ingredients which are usually not present in day creams. They are heavier in texture and take time to absorb into the skin. The rehydration process begins at night while you sleep after the cream has been applied and then continues to renew itself. During the day the skin is exposed to a harsh environment which degrades the barrier of the skin. Night creams help in healing the damaged barrier. It also calms the skin and relieves it from all sorts of tiredness.
