 Beauty Expert Says Night Cream Is Essential

Night cream is essential as it helps skin look and feel younger, says beauty expert.

"Most of us are not aware of the fact that night creams contain ingredients like retinol and AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) fruit acids that fight wrinkles and fine lines. As we grow older, collagen production in the body declines, which leads to sagging and wrinkled skin," Tisha Kapur Khurana, beauty expert of cosmetic brand Bottega Di Lungavita, told IANS.


"Application of a good night cream stimulates collagen production and helps the skin look and feel younger. It not only nourishes and revitalises your skin, but also treats pigmentation, age spots, wrinkles, fine lines and acne," she added.

When your skin feels stretchy and less elastic or dry or dull and patchy, it means you should start using a night cream. These signs help to decide when to use it, but choosing the right one is another task.

"When you are in your 20s, choose a cream that contains natural ingredients like aloe vera, honey and other essential oils. For those in their 30s, creams with active ingredients like amino acids, ceramides, retinol and other antioxidants are recommended," said Khurana.

For women in their 40s, she suggests to invest in those creams that contain peptides, soy extract and vitamins.

"Your night cream should be able to fight puffiness, wrinkles and pigmentation. For women in their 50s and 60s, it is important to select a night cream that is best suited for old and mature skin, which gives extra moisture and keeps your skin looking healthy all day long," she explained.

For visible results, she advises to apply cream half an hour before you go to bed. She also emphasises on the importance of its application.

"Wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Then take some cream on your fingers and apply gently in an upward stroke in circular motion. Never forget to apply the cream around your neck. This is the place where the ageing lines are most visible," said Khurana.
