One of the fundamental things to understand about the difference between morning and evening skincare routine is the fact that while your morning routine is largely about the protection of skin and prevention of any damage from sun exposure and environmental factors, your evening routine is about repair and restoration of the health of your skin. Like much of your body, your skin too naturally repairs itself in the night while you sleep. A good night time skin care routine goes a long way in helping the natural repair and restore process of your skin.
Know your skin care ingredients:
Before we jump into what skin care product is great for your specific skin type, it pays to understand the exact function of the various skin care ingredients.
Sounds complicated. What will work for me?
Skin care routine should be based on the type of skin you have and its current state. So when I suggest night time creams or serums to my patients it is largely based on the following thoughts.
Does it matter if it is a cream or a serum?
While serums have been pitched as concentrated versions that are more effective, this claim is largely untrue. A serum or a cream is only a delivery mechanism. Serums do have a better rate of absorption and come with the added advantage that they are largely non-comedogenic. I would recommend not paying specific attention to this fact and instead follow your dermatologist’s advice in terms of the selection of skin care products and also their application period and frequency.
In conclusion, there is no one size fits all elixir that will help you restore the health of your skin overnight. And while the selection of a night time skin care serum or cream based on your skin type is important; it is more important to ensure that they are applied correctly and consistently.
