Apply a day cream has become a daily act for a large majority of women. So today, cosmetic companies are trying to develop the market for night creams.
A night cream is first and foremost a moisturizer
One may wonder whether it is really necessary to apply a night cream. In fact, if your skin is well hydrated the night cream is not essential. However, the tendency to dry skin will find real comfort. The night creams have a smoother texture, richer and fattier than day creams. They are obtained by a mixture of oil in water, while the day creams have a composition of water in oil. They therefore provide a more intense moisturizing cream that day.
An anti-wrinkle cream?
Cosmetic companies also tout the virtues of their restorative and anti-wrinkle night cream. But here, the argument seems less convincing. Indeed, only creams with vitamin A acid and retinoids have proved effective in the field. But the action is minimal and the results are not seen until 15 months ... However, the old skin prone to wrinkles are primarily dry skin. The effect of moisturizing night cream is useful for preventing the appearance of wrinkles.
How does the night cream?
The action of night creams based on biological rhythms. Indeed, the body uses the sleep phase to recover from accumulated fatigue. In the epidermis, new cells are produced to regenerate the skin. These cells are all so fresh especially receptive to the active ingredients of the cream at night. They will make the most of its hydrating power.
The soothing action of the night cream
On the other hand, applying a night cream has a de-stressing that aspect should not be overlooked. Properly applied, the cream at night becomes a ritual of care. It can cut the pace of the day with a small gesture "pleasure". The creamy texture, delicate smell, massage and soothing sensation that relaxes the skin ... Nothing better to relax and let slip quietly into the night. To advise all those who have trouble falling asleep!
