Fab Tips: Day & Night!

From the old-world-charm of Charmis, to separate day and night concoctions. Do we really need this much beauty?

The fact is, water constantly evaporates from our skin, so the job of a good cream is to slow down this moisture loss by creating a physical barrier. Day creams and night creams are each important in their own, special way. Look at it in terms of defense and offence. The day cream’s job is more of a defensive one, to get you through the day without your skin drying out. The night cream’s job is to go on the offensive and help the skin’s natural repair processes to go into overdrive. So day or night cream, the end result should be to achieve skin that is supple and less prone to dryness and lines.

 Day Glow

During the day, our skin’s energies are devoted to protection from UV rays, pollution, and environmental stresses, so creams designed for day use are primarily focused on defense and support. A high quality day cream needs to have a light consistency that will let your pores breathe and not look glossy if you layer make-up on top of it. It also needs to have a long lasting effect of hydrating and refreshing the skin and relax any puffiness from the night before.

A day cream’s main agenda is not to treat the skin, but safeguard it, so SPF is a MUST. SPF will prevent any photo-ageing (and consequences such as lines, wrinkles, spots and pigmentation).

 Night Recharge

Did you know that your body works the hardest on its regenerative process when you are actually sleeping? Think of the night being a time when the skin does its “heavy lifting”, so night creams are focused on moisture and recovery. They are usually thick and high on consistency with powerful, slow absorbing moisturisers designed to penetrate over the course of several hours. A lot of women panic because night creams give the impression of wearing a greasy mask. Don’t. You’ll soon notice that the skin tends to absorb nutritive ingredients when we sleep and not have an oily feeling in the moring. Since there is no fear of sun damage at night, these magic potions also hold a high concentration of anti-ageing compounds like retinol, glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid, which are able to do their work without interference from sunscreens. If you want to talk a tad more technically, night creams are known to stimulate growth and circulation, regenerate cells, remove oxidants and prevent skin tissue degradation.

 And the wonder potion for your skin is..?

The decision to choose between a day or night cream or both actually depends on your skincare goals. If you’re on the younger side of the fence, don’t suffer from overly dry skin, you might get away with just a day-cream which you can use both in the day or at night. However, if your skin tends to dry out easily or you’re interested in actively minimising existing lines and wrinkles then a night cream is a must. And if you have crossed the magic age of 30, better to use both. Prevention is the best cure when it comes to skin ageing!
