At night, during sleep, the skin uses its own resources to regenerate. A good night cream is vital if you want to have a healthy and luminous complexion. Here are two reasons why it is necessary to use a night cream.
Creams for day and night have a different formula. Hydrating creams for the day contain ingredients that protect the skin from harmful effects of the environment, such as UV rays and pollution. In contrast, night cream concentrates on the regeneration of the skin. They are abundant in antioxidants and nutrients.
Sleep helps the skin regenerate. The skin regenerates itself during sleep. When you are in deepest sleep, a growth hormone that restores damaged cells lights up. At this time, the process of separation of dead cells of the epithelium is particularly active, the cellular renewal takes place at a twice higher rate, and the circulation of blood through the skin is also intensified.
Night creams should promote the natural defense of the skin
Excellent night cream should contain humectants such as sodium PCA and hyaluronic acid, ceramides or plant lipids, olive oil, avocado. It should have antioxidants – vitamins C and E, green tea or extract from grape seed. To accelerate the process of the exchange of matter in the cells, the night cream should contain vitamin A derivatives, such as retinol or retinyl palmitate or alpha- or beta-hydroxylic acid-glycolic, lactic or salicylic acid. Ingredients such as panthenol, allantoin and lavender help to calm irritation and promote the natural defense of the skin.
Go to bed before 11 p.m
Since skin renewal processes start before midnight so, make sure that you already dream of something beautiful. If you think it’s impossible to fall asleep early, try to meet the following requirements.
– Create an inert atmosphere in your bedroom: darken to a level that suits you and set the temperature to 19 ° C.
– Do not use electronic devices (mobile phone, tablet, computer) before bedtime and avoid any electromagnetic radiation.
– Do not wait to fall asleep in front of the TV.
– Do not think about how you cannot fall a sleep, but lie in bed, relax all the body’s muscles starting from your head and think about what calms you down.
