FAQs

1. Do night creams really work?

As years go by, gravity takes its toll, everything starts going south including our skin, so it is good if we try our best to stop our skin from this, night creams help do the same. They help repair and firm your skin and give you a younger and healthy-looking skin for a few more years.

2. Should night creams be used every night?

If you wear your moisturiser everyday why not your night cream? It is a necessity and would be a smart choice to use night creams consistently for best results.

3. Can night creams be used during the day?

Theoretically, yes, night creams too do have the main intention of hydration but in many night creams the ingredients are more concentrated which means that it would work wonders on your bare skin rather than a skin with makeup. Also, retinol creams cannot be used at day time as they cause photosensitivity, so do check the directions in the product and be vigilant.

4. When to start using night creams?

The current situation we live in, we abuse our skin left and right every single day so I think it’s never too late to begin a skin care routine. It is best to at least start using night creams by mid-twenties.

5. What is the difference between a night cream and day cream?

Day creams are lighter and less concentrated, they have ingredients to protect skin from the sun, night creams on the other hand are concentrated and designed to renew the integrity of the skin overnight.
