SEARCHING FOR THE BEST NIGHT CREAM TO ADD TO YOUR ROUTINE? LOOK NO FURTHER.
If you learnt anything from our previous blog post on prioritising a day cream in your routine CATCH UP HERE you’ll know that applying your moisturiser acts as a final barrier to the outside world, sealing in all your hard work with the previous steps in your routine. Your evening skincare routine is no exception and selecting the best night cream is almost more important (more on that later!). The truth is that your skin behaves quite differently while you sleep compared to the daytime, and so your skincare should change accordingly…
HOW DOES YOUR SKIN CHANGE AT NIGHT?
Studies have shown that a number of physiological changes occur in the skin overnight such as increased blood flow rate, higher melatonin levels, suppression of UV damage in skin cells and better wound healing. Your skin is actually more permeable in the evening than in the morning, leading to the possibility of increased moisture loss. In short, your skin repairs and rejuvenates itself whilst we sleep. ‘So, what needs to be different in my night-time moisturiser’, we hear you ask? It’s all about consistency and ingredient type. At night is when cells need nutrients the most to optimise their anti-aging benefits and have maximum impact. Thicker, richer consistencies and a larger concentration of ingredients like hyaluronic acid and peptides are what to look out for.
WHAT MAKES THE BEST NIGHT CREAM?
Taking this all into consideration we knew that when creating the night cream for Proaora Skincare it needed to rejuvenate your way to younger looking skin whilst you sleep, and so the Proaora Intensive Smoothing Face Cream was born. This indulgent night cream, absorbs quickly and provides increased collagen production, reduced fine lines and wrinkles and intense hydration. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid stimulate the epidermis enabling the skin to become firm, elastic, moisturised and smoothed. Whilst carrot and Indian tamarind extracts provide additional nourishment and reduce discolouration. Now that’s right, you’ve guessed it, this incredibly complex formula is also enriched with Astaxanthin. Nature’s most powerful antioxidant you’ll know that ‘as-ta-zan-thin’, is a carotenoid that’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the regeneration of the epidermis. Knowing how great it is for your skin is why we include it in all our products, it’s what we do.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Just as with all our products, we’d recommend conducting a patch test 24 hours before intended use, as is advisable with all new skincare. Astaxanthin is potentially not an ingredient you may have come across before so it’s important to check it suits you and your skin. Use as part of your evening skincare routine, making sure to first double cleanse effectively, acid tone (if applicable to you) and apply your Proaora serum of choice. We’d wholeheartedly recommend either our Snail Essence serum for use in the evening. Allow your products to sink into the skin and then apply the Proaora Intensive Smoothing Face Cream as your final step to lock in all the goodness from your routine and provide a protective barrier against moisture loss overnight.
