Many of you might think that night cream is just a typical ploy to get you to part with your hard-earned cash; and with good reason, as there are simply too many products out there that claim to rejuvenate and refresh tired-looking skin. But, beyond the ads and perky claims, wearing a night cream has real benefits for your skin. From choosing the right products for your skin type to following a routine before flopping in your bed, here are some things you might want to know about why a night cream might be good for your skin.
Choosing the Right Cream
The seasons have different effects on your skin. Your skin type also dictates the kind of cream that you need to use. Unfortunately, weeding through the countless number of night creams is a gargantuan task that might make you give up in a heartbeat. To help the process go faster, you should be looking for specific ingredients that are present in skincare products once you have identified your skin types.
Humectants for Dry Skin
Skin in extreme weather will not fare well given environmental factors such as indoor heating, dry air, heat, wind and the cold. Products that contain humectants will work for you because they seal in moisture. Glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter are some of the ingredients that you should look for. You will even find even these ingredients in your favorite foundation which are responsible for giving your skin a moisturized and even appearance. Other ingredients that work wonders for dry skin include lanolin oil, tremella extract, AHA, and sodium PCA. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) are used in improving skin condition, cleansing pores and smoothing facial lines.
Peptides and Vitamin C
All types of skin benefit from peptides which are known to boost collagen production. Collagen improves the elasticity of the skin contributing to a firmer epidermis. Include products that contain peptides to improve the appearance of your skin. Vitamin C is another important component that is useful in the production of collagen. A night cream that contains vitamin C helps in treating skin pigmentation and prevents changes in premature aging.
Sun damage is something that can be addressed by moisturizers and night creams. Vitamin E, coenzyme Q, green tea and idebenone are antioxidants that help improve the skin’s condition and reduces stress by decreasing free radicals. Green tea, for example, is a well-known antioxidant with amazing benefits on the skin. It alleviates sun damage and protects & soothes the skin. Chamomile and aloe vera also calm the skin while fatty acids and ceramides trap moisture to help fix the protective skin barrier.
Specific ingredients found in night creams and moisturizers provide benefits to your skin while you are sleeping. These components repair damage, improve suppleness and enhance the protective barrier for a better-looking skin.

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding skin of vellus hair (peach fuzz).
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding skin of vellus hair (peach fuzz). The result of Dermaplaning is radiant soft skin over which makeup glides on smoothly. You'll find your makeup looking far less caked and more natural looking.
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well!
It's the perfect procedure to begin stacking other treatments, like TCA Multi Acid Face Peel, Serums, and MicroRoller.

Chemical peels are used to treat different skin problems such as acne, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture. They involve the use of chemicals such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, Jessner's solution, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol.
The chemical is applied to your skin and then removed after some time. The top layer of your skin peels off as a result, revealing newer, more youthful-looking skin. TCA and Jessner peels are two popular types of chemical peels.

Going all organic is not the key. Why?

I love using skin peels and skin lightening products. I use organic face cleansers, organic creams, and serums.
I also love using light therapy on my skin. There are some great tools that are a great addition to a good skincare routine. I see a great result on acne and wrinkles.
