Surprising Benefits of Using a Night Cream

Unlike those who rely solely on the power of a pure water wash, or who have cabinets filled with dozens of bottles, a skincare routine whose primary goal is nourishing and safeguarding your skin from everyday influences actually makes use of few carefully selected products.

However, in the everlasting search for the perfect few, we ladies can get overwhelmed with choices as we get bombarded by questionable information on whether or not an item should or needs to be a part of our routine. Unfortunately, mighty night creams often tend to get neglected in these beauty struggles, and you would be surprised just how powerful this single concoction can be for your skin!

Perfect your beauty sleep

 Undoubtedly, making sure you get plenty of restorative Zzz’s every night is essential for maintaining a gorgeous complexion, keeping the eye-bags at bay and reaping many other health rewards. But this is where your night cream will boost your beauty sleep and bring out the effect of all your other skincare efforts.

Especially once we hit the 30 mile mark, it becomes essential to introduce a night cream as a part of our beauty routine. Combined with plenty of rest, a well-chosen night cream will ensure that your skin maintains its elasticity, reduces wrinkles and free-radical damage, and it seems that our skin is a nocturnal creature – it absorbs the most nourishing ingredients at night.

Your everyday beauty routine


To prep your skin well for the magic of your evening routine, you will need to have a carefully selected arsenal of skincare items that are suitable for your skin type. Start your day with a morning cleanse, inside and out, by drinking a glass of lemon water which is perfect as a detox solution that will do wonders for your body and purify your skin.

Choose a cleansing oil such as this coconut oil face wash for makeup removal, cleansing and care. After the warm wash and a bit of toner, you can apply your season-friendly moisturiser – summers like light creams with sun protection, while winters appreciate heavier, more protective ones.

Just before you turn in, use your serum of choice to allow your skin a night of restful nourishment, and you will wake up with a rosy, supple complexion.

Unleash your beauty potential

If you’re an inquisitive minimalist and you’re still wondering why you need a night cream in your regime, bear in mind that it’s all about the long-term benefits. Your facial skin is constantly exposed to the elements, not to mention makeup, and various toxins in your food and water. To cleanse and repair properly, your skin uses the carefully chosen ingredients in your night cream to restore its glow, maintain elasticity and minimize wrinkles.

The youthful radiance everyone craves for is achieved precisely with the help of this unique formula – antioxidants to protect and revitalize, essential oils to hydrate and sooth, retinol to smooth out the lines, and other vital elements such as vitamins and collagen for overall skin health.

Which one is best for you?

There are several factors to consider before you make your decision, because you don’t want to burden your skin or miss the opportunity to give it everything it needs to restore its glow.

  • Assess which creams fit your skin type – some are suitable for all types, while others have been created specifically to suit a demanding complexion.
  • What are your skin’s biggest pet peeves? Some creams are perfect for soothing those dry patches, relieving acne or giving you an even texture.
  • Monitor how your skin reacts, but give it time – After a few weeks of regular application, you can establish whether or not that particular cream is your best choice.
  • Numbers matter – your serum of choice will differ depending on your age.
  • Read the fine print – just like a diet based on versatile, nutritious ingredients will do wonders for your health and skin, every single product in your regime should be based on as many natural ingredients as possible.
