With so many to choose from, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to pick the perfect night cream to compliment your skincare routine.
And then there’s the age-old question….
Do I really need a separate night cream?
Well, the truth is you can use your day cream at night but, as night creams are formulated differently, there are several significant benefits in investing in a separate night cream if you want that ‘get up and glow’ complexion.
The benefits of night creams
During the day, our skin is bombarded by a host of environmental stresses (such as UV rays, pollutants…etc), so day creams tend to be formulated to help create a protective barrier, as well as hydrate the skin.
At night, our skin works hard to repair and renew, so night creams tend to have a thicker, richer texture and are packed with nutrients that work hard to help regenerate skin cells.
Unless you’re lucky enough to have great genes on your side, most of us start to spot the signs of aging in our early to mid-thirties. We know that keeping skin moisturised properly helps keep youth on our side, and night creams are great at locking in moisture, plumping fine lines, firming up your skin and improving your overall complexion.
So, if you haven’t found the perfect partner in a night cream yet, we’ve shortlisted the very best natural night creams on the market right now….
