Invest in a Daily Soothing Cream

What is a Daily Soothing Cream?

Well, first things first. It’s more than a moisturizer. You know the feeling you get when you take your fist sip of life-giving coffee in the morning? Day cream, or soothing cream, does the same thing, but for your skin. Day cream is a sure-fire way to start your day the right way. It keeps your skin smooth and supple and provides an excellent and healthy base for your foundation, if you are using one. A soothing day cream, once added to your skincare regime, makes all the difference.

The skin on our faces is more fragile and sensitive than the skin on the rest of our bodies. As a result of this, it requires a bit more TLC. It’s important to take care of your skin with a daily soothing moisturizer. The purpose of a day cream is to hydrate and nourish your skin first thing in the morning. In essence, it is a way to feed your skin every morning and start each day with fresh skin that is ready to face whatever you throw at it.

Why can’t I just use my night cream?

If you are thinking of using your night cream as a one-size-fits all and apply it during the day. It should be noted that day cream is best used during the day and the same applies for your night cream. This is because, night creams are typically heaver, and are designed to nourish your skin and give it the beauty sleep it deserves. They are not designed to work well with foundations or protect your skin from the sun and elements. It can also make your face look and feel a bit oily.

Above and beyond this, your skin behaves differently during the day and night. During the day our skin is focused on battling the suns UV rays, weather conditions, pollution and all of the makeup we throw at it. Whereas, at night our skin is focused on regenerating and healing itself. That is why day creams are typically lighter so as your skin can quickly absorb all of the nutrients and revitalizing properties without clogging your pores. Daily soothing creams are designed to be worn beneath makeup or with other skin creams.

On the other hand, night creams are deigned to deeply moisturize your skin over a prolonged period while you sleep. Night creams are often thicker and heaver, as your skin has the time to absorb them. This also means, that night creams can be richer and boast more intensive nourishing properties. And even, in some cases, anti-aging benefits. (Link to Reviving Renewal Night Cream product page)
