There was never a skin problem that a night cream couldn’t defeat! Gone are the days when night creams were to be used once you reached a ‘certain age’. People have now woken up to the immense benefits of treating your skin before hitting the pillow. There are many reasons for this:
- Your skin repairs itself at night, and the product you apply works better
- While you sleep, you don’t wash your face nor are you not exposed to sweat or dust – giving the product more time to work
- It gives your skin a chance to get rid of the day’s accumulated toxins
- Many creams smell lovely, helping you fall asleep peacefully
