Day vs. night: The best time to use your beauty products - page 2
Products you should use at night:
Night creams are formulated to help your skin repair and rejuvenate itself, a process that occurs naturally overnight while you sleep. They’re generally thicker in consistency than day creams and contain ingredients intended to penetrate deep into the skin during your snooze, as well as anti-ageing heroes like ceramides, which trigger collagen production. Simply smooth night cream on before bed for fresher skin come morning!
Intensive anti-ageing products and peels
Anti-ageing products and peels – particularly those containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and glycolic acid – are usually best used at night-time. Why? Not only can these active ingredients make your skin sensitive to sunlight, it’s also best to let your skin rest afterwards so their effects can continue to work – ideally overnight when your skin is in repair mode.
Leave-in hair treatment
Unless you’re happy to leave the house rocking a wet mane, you’ll probably prefer to let the magic of a hair mask happen overnight. Clean hair is a must to ensure the treatment is properly absorbed, so make sure you’ve washed away any dry shampoo, hair spray or other product residue before you apply it. The best part of a night-time hair treatment? Your hair will be prepped to cope better with any heat styling you embark on in the morning!
