Have you ever wondered what the difference is between day and night moisturisers? Just as there is a difference between the moon and sun, there is a difference between the two moisturisers. Let us explain why.
First of all day moisturisers are more lightweight than night moisturisers. The reason therefor is that it’s ideal to wear underneath your makeup, leaving your skin looking radiant and glowing. The biggest factor that differentiates a day moisturiser from a night moisturiser is that many day moisturisers contain sunscreen. Our skin gets exposed to the solar rays of the sun during the day and we therefore have to prevent our skin from getting damaged.
Night moisturisers on the other hand are heavier in texture, because it is generally formulated with ingredients to nourish and treat your skin while you sleep. Our skin needs to recover from sun damage, stress, dehydration or environmental damage at night time. A night moisturiser is the secret weapon to every sleeping beauty.
As long as you’re protected from the sun during the day and getting your beauty sleep at night, it’s up to you to decide what fits your skin.
