What’s the difference between day cream and night cream?
People often wonder what is the difference between day cream and night cream and whether it is really necessary to use them both separately. The skin has different needs during the daytime and the nighttime, so if you want to take as good care of your skin as possible, it is indeed good to use both of these creams.
Day cream is designed to protect the skin. Skin needs protection during the day from the damaging external factors such as microbes, impurities and UV radiation. Day cream protects the skin’s own protective mechanisms. Day cream often contains SPF protection and is lighter than night cream.
Night cream on the other hand is designed to repair the skin from the daytime damage. Night cream is therefore heavier and contains more nurturing active ingredients than day cream.
