Day Creams and Night Creams

Les crèmes de jour et de nuit

Do you use a moisturizer for your skin? A face cream more particularly?

If so, did you know that the skin does not react in the same way during the daytime as during the night? In fact, during the day, the skin tends to be on the defensive: it tries to protect itself from external aggression, such as the sun, the ambient pollution, the weather conditions and the proliferation of bacteria in the air. During sleep, the skin is more active and tends to repair what has been broken during the day. It is therefore important to adapt your care accordingly.

Day cream

Often preferred by most people, day cream will be used primarily to protect the skin against external aggression. UVA and UVB rays from the sun, air pollution, wind, cold, etc. The epidermis is put to the test. Regardless of your age and skin type, a good cream can provide you with additional protection.

The result: deeply hydrated skin which is less prone to irritation and redness. Protected skin. Ideal as a base to prevent aging.

Night cream

Often underestimated, night cream plays a leading role in the health and quality of the skin. Unlike day cream, night cream is used for its revitalizing effects. Sleep allows the cells, among other things, to regenerate. Night cream therefore contributes to skin regeneration by providing essential nutrients. As the skin is more "active" at night, it is more receptive to the care we can provide and therefore acts more effectively.

Night creams are often richer in water, as well as in creamy and nourishing ingredients.

It can be said that day and night creams complement each other. Whether moisturizing, firming or repairing the skin or preventing a particular need, applying morning and evening is not a bad thing. Choosing them, however, is the key!

Practical information : remember that it takes about a month for the epidermis to renew itself. So, when using a new cream, be patient before seeing results.
