Day creams, night creams… Is there a difference? Yes, of course! Each cream has been developed to improve, protect and nourish the skin. And as the name suggests: one cream is for the day and the other cream is for the night. But why?
Day creams are lightweight creams that are quickly absorbed by the skin and maintain moisture levels throughout the day. Make-up also stays in place better when a day cream is used. Protecting against UV rays, air pollution, but also the blue light from your computer and telephone, is the job of a day cream.
Always apply a day cream to clean skin, then the nutrients are best absorbed by the skin.
A tip! Don't forget to put the cream under your eyes and on the outer edge of your ear. The skin in these areas is very thin and sensitive, which means that it can burn quickly.
Night creams are generally thicker and richer creams with the task of restoring your skin. The cream contains a higher concentration of ingredients that can be optimally absorbed by the skin. At night, the skin recovers: new cells are created that replace the dead cells. The rich night cream is absorbed slowly and gradually, so you wake up with hydrated skin. A night cream gives your skin a boost, thanks to a rich number of nourishing and natural ingredients!
The following also applies to a night cream: apply to clean skin and do not use too thick a layer, this makes it more difficult to be properly absorbed by the skin because a night cream already has a 'fuller' composition.
