Beauty FAQ

Why use night cream?

This guide explains what night cream is, the benefits for your skin, how to apply it, and which type to choose. Read on for everything you need to know
about night cream.

What is night cream?

Night cream is different from standard moisturiser in that it is designed to be applied during the evening. Apply just before bed for the best results. While you sleep, your skin regenerates and repairs itself – night creams are specially formulated to help aid this natural process.

What does night cream do?

Night cream soothes and calms the skin as you sleep, reducing any redness and irritation overnight. By supporting the skin’s natural regenerative processes while you’re sleeping, these creams help to give you a more consistent complexion when you wake up. Night cream also keeps the skin to stay hydrated.

What are the benefits of night cream?

Applying night cream helps your skin to look and feel smoother, firmer, and more toned. The active ingredients of night cream aid the production of collagen, boosting the skin’s elasticity. This in turn lessens the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.

What are the active ingredients in night cream?

While this will differ depending on which product you use, some of the common active ingredients of night cream include:

  • Moonstone hydrated silica
  • Organic harungana (nature’s retinol)
  • Organic gorse extract
  • Desert date extract
  • Organic sea lily
  • Vitamin C derivative
  • Glycolic acid

How to apply night cream

Applying night cream is easy. Simply place a small amount on your chin, nose, forehead, and each cheek. Gently massage the cream into your skin, beginning with an upwards motion and then pushing outwards. Once you’ve massaged the product in, check to make sure you have even coverage and then repeat if necessary.
