Why use a Day Cream?

You probably already know how much your skin is subjected to on a daily basis. Things like UV rays, pollution, environmental stress and even regular stress can take their toll on your skin. And although your skin has the amazing ability to protect itself, it still needs some help from your side.

Day creams work in several ways to care for your skin. They are designed to keep your skin moisturized and shielded from the elements, and many also provide a hefty dose of active ingredients and can help prevent or treat skin concerns.

Choosing the right day cream

A high quality day cream will not only protect your skin but will also keep it nurtured and hydrated, leaving it healthier and more radiant. Keep the following tips in mind when selecting your day cream:

  • Pay attention to the label and work with your skin type. If you are prone to shine, avoid heavy ingredients. And if antiaging is a concern, look for firming and hydrating ingredients.
  • Always apply your day cream before your primer or foundation. A pro tip is to apply your cream first thing in the morning; this will give the cream time to absorb before your put on your makeup.
  • Sun protection is super important! Keeping your skin protected from the sun will prevent hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, sagging skin, and the list goes on! Always make sure that your day cream has sunscreen in it to keep your skin safe from harmful UV rays.

With so many day creams on offer, it can be a little overwhelming to identify the right one for your needs. Thankfully, there are quite a few good brands out there offering high quality creams designed for use during the day.
