Habit Hack: Why You Need A Moisturiser & Night Cream In Your Routine
Our skin functions differently throughout the day and night. During the day, it protects against UV and environmental damage, leading to increased sebum production especially when the sun is at its peak.
At night, the skin undergoes renewal and restoration with increased microcirculation, decreased sebum production, and increased susceptibility to water loss.
What do daytime moisturisers do?
A good daytime moisturiser should contain vitamins, minerals, and compounds necessary for protection against environmental damage. Key ingredients include niacinamide and hyaluronic acid for hydration and antioxidant protection, and vitamins C, E, and carotenoids for protection against free-radical damage. It should have a lightweight texture, be suitable for wearing under makeup, and have SPF protection.
What do night creams do?
The skin repairs, renews, and restores itself while you sleep. To aid this, it's important to use products with retinol, peptides, coenzyme Q10, and hyaluronic acid to support collagen production, fight against free radicals, and enhance skin cell renewal and hydration.
