Differences Between Day & Night Creams

Posted by Porcelana Staff on

When you’re walking through the aisles at your local store and are bombarded with all of the different day and night creams, it can be pretty difficult to determine which product has what you need. What is the difference between day and night creams anyway? How do you know what to choose?

What Do Day and Night Creams Do?

 Day Creams – Day creams are like your skin’s under-armor for daily activities out in the elements. The sun, wind, rain and other weather play big factors in the health of our skin every day. Day creams are designed to be lightweight protectors of our skin, often with the use of SPF, so our skin is moisturized and protected all day long, even under our makeup applications.

 Night Creams – At night is when our skin does the majority of its repair work. As we sleep, our body naturally heals itself and prepares for the next day. Night creams are designed to provide intense moisture to our skin with slow absorption, helping our skin repair itself and have a youthful appearance when we wake up the next day.

Ingredients and Their Purposes

 Day Creams – The idea behind day creams is to provide as much protection for your skin with as few ingredients as possible. Typically day creams go easy on compounds like alpha-hydroxy acids and retinoids because they can make your skin more sensitive to the suns harsh rays. Day creams should be non-greasy and oil free to help your skin breathe during the day and allow your make-up to go on smoothly.avocado-skin-care-routine.jpeg

 Night Creams – Night creams are designed to assist in the repair and restoration of our skin, so they are often thicker and designed for our skin to absorb moisture over an extended period of time while we sleep. Often these contain the highest concentration of anti-aging compounds like retinol, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid. Because we aren’t exposed to the sun while we sleep, there is little worry about exposure to elements that would create a problem using these compounds.

Why Porcelana Is the Best Choice

 Day Cream – Porcelana provides a comprehensive day cream that includes ingredients to help with the correction of dark spots due to pregnancy, sun exposure, and acne, among other factors. Our formula uses 2% hydroquinone, proven to be the most effective compound in lightening dark spots and blemishes. Our non-greasy formula is perfect for wear under your daily makeup while also providing SPF protection against harsh sun exposure, and anti-oxidants to make your skin look healthy and radiant.

 Night Cream – Our night cream is designed to help your skin improve its brilliance while you sleep. With the inclusion of hydroquinone to help fade dark spots and blemishes, as well as avocado oil to add an extra moisturizing ingredient to aid in your skin’s repair and restoration, you will wake up with a more brilliant, fresh face for the new day. Our night cream is also designed with a non-greasy formula, but still includes extra vitamins to help keep your skin looking its best.
