Day Cream Vs. Night Cream: What’s The Difference? And do I really need a night cream?

Lavido Age Away Hydrating Cream

When it comes to skincare routines, most people usually follow the same routine regardless of day or evening. However, it is important to be mindful of your skin’s needs. During the day, your skin needs protection while at night it needs replenishment. Now you must be wondering – Do I really need a night cream? The short answer is YES. Typically, day creams are lightweight and have ingredients that protect the skin from the UV rays of the sun and the free radicals and A day cream can be applied under makeup. A night cream, on the other hand, works to repair and replenish the skin. Night creams can be richer in texture as compared to day creams and have ingredients that deeply penetrates, moisture and reduce early signs of ageing.

The age away day cream includes moisturizing ingredients that protect the skin barrier and include vitamins, SPFs, and antioxidants, which protect the skin against environmental damage. While the age away night cream contains more active ingredients designed to restore the skin from existing damage and ingredients that encourage cell renewal, it has been shown that skin cells divide eight times faster at night than during the day; therefore, skin will benefit more from using a night cream with restorative, rejuvenating ingredients.

To induce cream penetration into the deeper layers of the skin, best to apply 2/3 drops of the Facial Serum before.
