THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DAY AND NIGHT CREAM
Day creams are applied in the morning because they are equipped to protect your skin from the environmental aggressors you will encounter throughout the day - many contain antioxidants to minimize pollution-based free radicals and sunscreen to shield you from UV rays. Most typically have a lightweight consistency. Night creams, on the other hand, focus on repairing any damage you might have picked up using ingredients like retinol to speed up cellular renewal and counteract dark spots. These creams also regulate moisture levels, which naturally descrease in the evening, with emollients that often create a rich, thick texture.
