If you generally go to bed without using a night cream, then you are missing out on something. This is because of the benefits of night cream on your skin that you wouldn’t have ever imagined! Though the idea of applying night cream seems trivial, how it enhances your skin can’t be explained in mere words.
Though Night Creams are beneficial for you in general, it also depends upon the ingredients of the particular product. The formulation should speak to you. In this blog, we will talk about the benefits of night cream, how ingredients play an important role, and how to add night cream to your skincare routine.
So, Let’s Start!
Benefits of night cream
Before talking about the benefits of particular night cream ingredients. Let’s talk about the wider benefits of night cream as a standalone product. Here are the 4 benefits of night cream:
During the day your face is bombarded by drying effects due to pollution and sun exposure. Come nighttime, however, your water bottle is forgotten and your skin has to make it through to morning. A night cream will keep your skin hydrated overnight, ensuring that you wake up looking fresh-faced. With a night cream, your skin becomes wonderfully smooth and supple.
As we say, your face has quite a tough job during the day. By bedtime, following your evening routine, chances are that any potential irritation in your skin is at its most, well, irritated! A night cream can help to calm and soothe your skin overnight so that any redness or irritation is gone while you sleep. This helps to ensure that, by morning, you have an even skin complexion.
If you have acne or breakouts, the temptation is to dry out your skin. However, it needs soothing and moisturizing too. Doing this at night is the way to get the best balance.
Wrinkles and fine lines are more notable when collagen is depleted. Using a night cream boosts your collagen production, helping your skin to look plumper and firmer. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and lessens sagging. In short, the elasticity of your skin is given a much-needed boost.
In addition, applying night cream helps to stimulate blood circulation, helping to eliminate toxins and promote the skin’s natural healing and cleansing process. Indeed, if you’re after the wonderful radiant glow that you see on others, a night cream will be your secret weapon.
A night cream will enable you to tackle dryness, which may feel like a losing battle during the day. Its nourishing thick composition allows the moisture to be absorbed deeply into your skin.
Benefits of Night Cream Ingredients
Of course, not all night creams are created equally. You’ll need to choose your night cream carefully with thought to which essential ingredients are right for you.
At WishCare, we have developed our night cream using Sea Algae. We’ve chosen this ingredient very intentionally. Not only does it meet our values of natural sustainable ingredients, but it’s bursting with skin goodness.
Sea Algae is full of antioxidant-rich vitamin A. It locks the nourishment in your skin leaving you with hydrated and moisturised skin.
In addition, we’ve also included Retinol, Oats and Rosehip oil in our night cream. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A which is great for the production of collagen and has anti-ageing and skin clearing properties. Oats removes dead cells, and it also soothes and moisturises the skin. Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin C, boosting collagen production and reducing inflammation.
We at WishCare believe that Ingredients play the most important part in the formulation of a product. For us, ingredients matter, because you matter.
How to apply Night Cream?
We really recommend incorporating night cream into your night routine following the below points in order to really capitalise on the benefits it brings:
Follow a cleansing routine first
Use your cleanser first to remove dirt and excess sebum following the day. Then, ensure your skin is dry before applying night cream.
Dab on night cream
Start by dabbing on a generous amount of night cream using clean fingertips. Then use an upward and circular motion to massage the cream into your skin. The massage is an important part of boosting absorption and circulation.
Now It’s time to bid adieu, but do not forget to include a night cream in your routine because healthy skin is happy skin.
