The importance of your night-time skincare routine

The skin loses water throughout the day and the night, peaking at 4 AM. As such, we need to make up for this loss of moisture by applying a hydrating, nourishing night cream. This will saturate the skin with water, essential fatty acids, nutrients, and oligoelements. If the epidermis is dried out or dehydrated, a night cream will return its smoothness and softness. This is all the more important in the winter or after prolonged exposure to the sun. So don't skip this step during your night-time skincare routine. It provides immediate comfort to your skin and it would be a shame to miss out on this feeling!

During the day, your skin suffers endless environmental aggressions: stress, pollution, smoke, UV... the list goes on. This produces toxins that must be eliminated. If too many such toxins accumulate, the skin cells start to dysfunction. The result: a dull complexion, dehydrated skin, wrinkles, spots, and red patches.

When we sleep, the skin repairs the damage suffered during the day. During this process, the blood circulation to the skin is stronger to provide the nutrients needed to eliminate toxins. Night creams boost the cells' cleansing system to deep-clean the skin and eliminate the particles that make it dull.

Another night-time phenomenon is cell renewal, which is at its height between 1 and 3 AM. Boost this process by improving your night-time skincare routine with powerful active ingredients such as retinol, resveratrol, hyaluronic acid, and anti-dark spot substances.

Before going to bed, use face peels that contain AHA (glycolic or lactic acids) or BHA (salicylic acid). They will smooth out the skin's surface and stimulate skin regeneration. These products can make your skin brighter and smoother, stamp out dark spots, and erase fine lines.

The night is the perfect time to make up for any potential deficiencies and soothe skin aggravations suffered during the day. So opt for a night cream with an effective repair formula that provides the dermis with all the tools to repair itself: hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, peptides, etc., for an anti-wrinkle effect and maximum firmness.

Whether it's a serum or a cream that you rub in or a mask that you leave on all night, there are endless products out there. These adapt to your skin type and provide the texture you are looking for. Whether you prefer a luxurious cold cream, a soothing cloth mask, or a half-oil-half-cream serum, you are sure to find a night cream that fits your skin and your needs.
