Do I Really Need Separate Day and Night Creams for My Skin?

One common question many people have is whether they really need separate day and night cream and what are the differences between these two types of creams?

Usually day creams are lighter than the heavier, richer night creams. Read on to learn more about the benefits of using both a day and a night cream and some specific information relating to our Botanical Biome Day and night cream Bundle 

Understanding the Differences

Day Creams: Designed for Protection

Day creams are formulated to protect your skin from the environmental stressors you encounter throughout the day. These stressors include pollution and blue light from screens. Day creams are usually lighter in formulation than overnight creams Here’s what makes our day cream unique:

  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice: This ingredient soothes and hydrates the skin, providing a calming effect.
  • Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Water: Reduces redness and refreshes the skin, giving it a revitalized appearance.
  • Squalane: Keeps the skin soft and moisturized without feeling greasy.
  • Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract: Known for its repairing and strengthening properties, it promotes collagen production, enhancing skin's elasticity.
  • Microbiome-Friendly Formula: Our day cream contains Lactobacillus/Mel Ferment, a unique honey-based prebiotic and postbiotic ingredient that supports the good bacteria on your skin, reducing inflammation and improving hydration.

Night Creams: Focused on Repair and Renewal

At night, your skin goes into repair mode, working to regenerate and heal from the day’s damage. Night creams are designed to support this natural process and tend to be heavier in formulation than day creams:

  • Microbiome-Friendly Formula: Like the day cream, our night cream features Lactobacillus/Mel Ferment, supporting your skin's microbiome for reduced inflammation and improved hydration.
  • Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil: Moisturizes deeply without clogging pores, making it ideal for overnight use.
  • Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Flower Oil: Soothes and rejuvenates the skin overnight, aiding in its natural repair processes.
  • Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter: Rich in vitamins, this ingredient provides deep nourishment, ensuring your skin wakes up soft and supple.
  • Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract: Continues to repair and calm the skin, reducing redness and strengthening your skin barrier while you sleep.

Why Use Both?

Using both day and night creams can address your skin’s needs around the clock. Here are some reasons why it might be worth incorporating both into your skincare routine:

  • Targeted Benefits: Day creams protect and prevent damage during the day, while night creams repair and rejuvenate at night. Using both ensures your skin receives comprehensive care.
  • Optimal Formulation: The specific formulations of day and night creams are optimized for different times of the day, ensuring that your skin gets the appropriate ingredients when it needs them the most.
  • Improved Skin Health: By addressing different skincare needs, you can improve overall skin health, leading to a more balanced, radiant complexion.
