The utility and effect of night cream explained

There is still an unwell-informedness around night cream. Probably you too have already wondered why you should use a day and night cream, whether you can wear a night cream during the day and why you should use it at all. In this blog, you can read why there is a difference between a day and night cream, how night cream works and when you should use it.

Why you need a day and night cream?

While you are sleeping, your skin is going through another process compared to the daytime. For example, during the night, higher melatonin levels stimulate hair growth, suppress UV damage in skin cells and support skin cells repair. But there is also an increased moisture loss. Due to this other process overnight, your night care needs to differ from your day cream and contain other ingredients to support your skin in the best way and get the most out of the process where it’s going through. 

How night cream works

While day creams generally ‘protect’, night creams work hard to repair and regenerate the skin. For the repair and regenerate, the skin cells need nutrients.  Moreover, it’s during the night when the anti-ageing benefits reach their maximum impact and signs of ageing can be efficiently reduced. That’s why they are generally thicker in consistency than their daytime counterparts and tend to have a higher concentration of ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, retinol and peptides. that boost cell turnover, hydration and circulation. This in combination with their slow-absorbing nature, they can moisture, repair and rebalance the skin.

When to use night cream

Cell regeneration is supposed to be at its maximum during 10 pm and 2 am, so applying night cream before this is ideal and not just before you go to bed.

 

Before you add your night cream, of course, you need to cleanse your skin. Also using a serum before you add the night cream is recommended. A serum allows the night cream to penetrate deep into the skin. Do you want an even better absorption? Massage the cream on the face in upward, circular motions.

Which night care for a glowing youthful skin

The secret of young radiant skin is good hydration. Louis Widmer’s night cream provides intense hydration – in order to expect long-lasting wrinkles and firm the skin – thanks to the combination of 2 types of hyaluronic acid. 

 

From the age of 25, it is recommended to use creams with an anti-ageing effect to prevent and slow down the first signs of skin ageing.

 

There is also an accompanying day cream with protection factor 30. If you suffer from very dry skin, you can also use the night cream as a day cream.

 

This night cream is vegan and exclusively available in pharmacies.
