The importance of using night cream18/07/2014

As you hit your mid-twenties you begin to realise your mother was right about a lot of things. Drinking more water, never going to bed on an argument, or without removing your make-up are all favourite pieces of advice.
Your mum may even have told you to make sure to use a good night cream.
But if she didn’t, is it really necessary? Surely a regular moisturiser is good enough? Here are the five questions you should ask yourself if you’re still not sure of the answer.
1. Should I bother with a skincare routine?
If you’ve ever had to pull an all-nighter, or gone hours without food, you’ll know how much your body begins to fail you when it’s thrown out of its expected routine.
Keep in mind that your skin is not only your most visible organ, but it’s also its largest and most porous. When you neglect to award it its own routine, it will quickly become run-down and struggle to defend itself against wear and tear. Treating yourself to a vitamin enriched, organic skincare routine will not only have you looking better, but you will feel the difference too.
2. Do I have to use a cream specifically for night-time?
Your skin will benefit most from TLC at night. So it makes sense to help your skin along at this crucial time with a skincare product specifically designed for the job.
In fact, dermatology expert Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary claims that for people on a standard 7am-11pm day, the skin does most of its regenerating between the hours of 10pm and 2am. So it makes sense to help your skin along at this crucial time with a skincare product specifically designed for the job.
The natural oils used in organic night cream help to speed up cell turnover. So even if you can’t sleep at 10pm, you’ll get a lot more bang for your buck from your night cream if you apply it then.
3. Is buying organic really worth the money?
During your day, your skin will absorb many harmful chemicals it will try to fight against. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to avoid pollutants in the air, which is why treating your skin to a nurturing, organic remedy is essential to your skin’s well being.
4. I’m only in my twenties though, I don’t have wrinkles, is it really necessary!
Not yet you don’t! Ever hear that “prevention is better than cure”? A good night cream will help to prevent and correct pigmentation and age spots.
It will delay fine lines from appearing and keep your skin looking bright and cheery. Choosing an effective natural product can also help calm psoriasis, eczema and acne.
