Day and Night cream routine benefits

Skin is the largest organ of our body, stretched from head to toe. Our skin gets affected by rapid aging, exposure to pollution, stress-filled life, and poor diet. Although environmental factors target the whole body, our facial skin faces the most consequences. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of day and night cream; make a habit of applying a face cream to get supple skin. Keep reading and learn all the secret information regarding usage and effects of creams. I have also shared an easy skincare regimen here that will make it easy for you to take care of your skin and combat signs of aging at any age

What is a night cream?

When you go to sleep, your skin cells rejuvenate and repair the cells against damage. You need a superior quality night cream with active ingredients to boost regeneration. Usually, night creams are rich in antioxidants and other ingredients that restores the skin, moisturizes, fight against free radical, even the skin tone, make the skin tightened and supple, and clear acne/acne spots.

What is a day cream?

During the daytime, your skin is exposed to several objects like pollution, UV rays, and dust. Therefore, we need a shield that can create a barrier between harmful environmental factors and our facial skin. This way, your skin will be protected against free radicals that can cause skin cancer and other serious illnesses. Day cream can not only protect the skin against harmful effects but also prevent premature aging of the skin. Usually, the day cream is tacky and creates and performs layering on the skin.

What's the difference between night and day cream?

Day creams have an entirely different consistency than night creams. In fact, these creams have different functions and different effects on the skin. You shouldn't swap these creams for their usage. Most night creams, when exposed to the sunlight, can damage the skin badly because it contains traces of bleaching agents. Besides that, the nighttime cream only benefits when the skin is relaxed. When it comes to the day cream, its only task is to shield the skin. Therefore, the day cream has no ingredient that can correct any skin issue or provide any replenishment. Do not use day creams at night because they might irritate the skin when applied for a longer span and might cause an acne breakout.

Benefits of Day cream:

Here are the benefits of a day cream:

  • Protection against UV rays.
  • Hydration for skin that lasts longer.
  • Gives a dewy finish to the skin without makeup.
  • It is the best base before makeup.
  • Keep skin smooth and fresh looking throughout the day.
  • Prevent premature aging.
  • Battle all signs of dryness.
  • Prevent uneven tones.
  • Protects against all sorts of environmental pollution.

Benefits of night cream:

Here are the benefits of night cream:

  • Fight all signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and drooping skin
  • Enhance the production of collagen in the skin.
  • Enhance the skin elasticity, thus restoring skin suppleness.
  • Soothe irritation, itching, and other skin condition.
  • Kickstart cell rejuvenation.
  • Fight acne and acne spots.
  • Brings out glowing skin.
  • Make skin soft to the touch.
  • Replenish skin nutrients.

Why should we use both creams?

Now, you might be asking this question. Most people's daily schedule is remarkably busy, making it difficult to follow a skin regimen. However, you must know that having a healthy regimen is particularly important if you hate seeing sagging and wrinkly skin. Both creams serve a good part of the day and protect the skin from harmful environmental effects. Even dermatologists have confirmed the atrocities of the environment on our skin, so it is our responsibility to keep it shielded day at night. If you remain at your house for longer, you might enjoy cheat days from skincare; however, if your sun exposure is high, I will advise you to wear day and night cream.

Can you use serums instead of day cream?

Serums gained recognition among people in late 2017s when one specific serum company bought all the influencers and tricked common people into buying their product. All serum contains much glycerin that smoothens the skin, sometimes making people question the use of day creams. You can apply the serum before the day cream but never skin your cream. Serums can only provide hydration, help in exfoliation, and sometimes fight pore inflammation. For active UV protection, you need superior quality day cream with all the right ingredients and a skin-friendly consistency.

Steps to follow at day:

Step 1: wash face.

Right after waking up, the first thing you need to do is to clean your face with a mild cleanser. Always choose the cleanser as per your skin type. Lather your skin nicely and wash it with freezing water.

Step 2:  balance your skin's pH:

You must balance out your skin's pH with a good toner. A normal pH level prevents your skin from dryness, overproduction of sebum, aging, and acne.

Step 3: Use serum:

Although serums are overrated, I would still recommend using them. A good hyaluronic serum can take water molecules into your skin's deeper layer and provide long-lasting hydration.

Step 4: buy the best day cream:

Apply two pea size amounts on your dried face and waits for it to get absorbed. Never rub the cream, but rather pat it gently; otherwise, your skin gets into the exfoliating mode, and you might get acne. Consider buying our Day Cream which is perfect for all types of skins. 

Step 5: Apply Sunscreen:

Although day creams provide ample UV protection, it is still important that you apply good Sunscreen. Make sure that it is not too white or tacky. Apply a generous amount of Sunscreen to your face and neck and let it get dry.

Steps to follow at night

Step 1: Cleanse your face:

If you have mixed and oily skin, use cleanser two times a day. On the other hand, if you have dry skin, it is advised that you use the cleanser only once.

Step 2: Take off your makeup and exfoliate:

Take off your makeup and use a gentle exfoliator and scrub your skin. This way, all the debris, dirt, and remanent of making coming out of your skin.

Step 3: use toner:

Dab a good toner or mist rose water all over your face at night. Our skin will get an instant hydration boost and becomes supple instantly.

Step 4: Apply face mask:

Use a superior quality face mask. All face masks hydrate the skin and make it softer. You can use any sheet mask you like.

Step 5: Apply night cream:

You can apply a good face serum if your skin is damaged. However, you can also directly apply one of our Bestseller Retinol Repair Night Cream on the face as your face is almost ready for the night.

Step 6: Apply eye cream

Eye creams are as important as night creams. Our eyes get tired, puffy, and dehydrated more quickly than other sections of our faces. Eye creams are very hydrating and penetrate your eye skin, thus preventing sagginess, dark circles, and puffed-up eyes.

Step 7: sleep on a silk pillow:

Silk pillow holds a lot of benefits. The biggest advantage of sleeping on a silk pillow is that it prevents skin aging and acne.

These are some of the steps that you follow at day and night to keep your skin healthy, supple, and away from wrinkles. Good and hydrated skin keeps you youthful for years to come. You can skip any of the steps mentioned above from your day/night routine with the advice of your dermatologist. If you want glassy skin, do not go out of the house when the sun is at its peak and your skin is prone to UV rays because at those hours, no matter how many sunscreens you apply, you can still damage your skin badly.

Can you use face cream on other body parts?

You can use facial products if you do not have lotion o body cream at home. Some dermatologists forbid applying facial products on other body parts because our hands, feet, arms, legs, back, and other parts require thicker and heavier lotions/creams. Usually, the creams we use for our face are light in consistency and may not give us the hydration and effects we require on other sections of our body.


Day and night creams are two particularly important products that keep the skin away from environmental harm and other natural atrocities. Usually, when you do not take care of your skin, you can get many skin ailments like wrinkles, uneven skin, sagging, shady spots, and acne. Following a proper regimen and applying both day and night cream can rejuvenate your facial skin and keep it youthful even at sixty. In other words, day and night creams have the potential to reverse all signs of aging and keep ample hydration in the skin. In this article, we have talked about the benefits and usage of day and night cream that everyone must know.

Skin is the cloak your body wears for a lifetime. Make it the best garment you own.
