The Difference Between a Day Cream and Night Cream

You have surely asked yourselves why do we have to combine the actions of night cream and a day cream. Is one moisturizer enough?
Well, there are many different factors about these moisturizers, but ultimately, it comes down to texture, ingredients, and protection from UV rays. 
Here are some facts and explanations about why having two separate creams is worthwhile and how they are actually different. 

During the day, our skin is exposed to UV rays, pollution, and environmental aggressors, all of which can cause severe damage to our skin, if it is not adequately protected. 

Creams you apply at the beginning of your day are equipped to protect your skin from the aggressors you will face on the outside. Many day creams contain antioxidants to minimize the effect of pollution on your skin, as well as sunscreen to shield you from UV rays. Generally, they have a lightweight consistency. 

The day cream is generally a multitasking product that moisturizes skin, serves as a good base for makeup, and in some cases contains SPF. Since you’re more exposed to the sun during the day, your day cream should not include active ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid, or alpha hydroxy acids, which can all irritate the dermis when exposed to sun rays.

Night cream, on the other hand, focuses on repairing the damage your skin might have suffered, as well as speeding up cellular turnover and counteraction of dark spots. These creams also replenish moisture levels with ingredients that have a rich, thick texture. 

Night creams usually have a heavier texture to nourish the deep layers of the skin while you sleep. At night, your skin focuses on repairing itself the most, so night creams often feature active ingredients like acids and retinol to promote skin cell turnover during that time.


Eye Cream

Can you survive without an eye cream? Of course. But, if you have specific skin issues like hyperpigmentation, dryness, or puffiness, you might want to try one. 
The skin around the eyes is thin and sensitive, it requires a bit extra care. A serum or an eye cream will do your skin good.
