Benefits of Using Day and Night Creams

Your skin has its own biorhythm. Its needs shift depending on whether you’re sleeping or awake. With the right day and night creams, you can protect and nourish your skin 24 hours a day.

Why is day cream so important?

From the moment you wake up, you need to make moisture and protection a priority for your skin.

Follow our three simple skin care tips for beautifully radiant and healthy skin all day long:

1. Always apply day cream in the morning

Hydration and protection are the two main benefits of using day cream.

Think of your day cream as the protective shield against the environmental influences it might face throughout the day.

2. Choose day creams with active ingredients

Day creams containing antioxidants are the most effective at protecting your skin from free radicals that can cause wrinkles.

NIVEA’s Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Day Face Cream actively increases the natural Q10 and creatine levels in your skin to fight wrinkles from within and visibly smooth your skin.

3. Protect your skin from the sun

A day cream with SPF help protects your skin from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.

NIVEA’s Daily Essentials Light Moisturising Day Cream – now with SPF 30+ – is perfect for everyday sun exposure. The ultra light, non-greasy formula provides high sun protection and locks in moisture with vitamin E.

Why does your skin need night cream?

There are two main reasons why night cream is such an important step in your skin care regime:

1. It supports your skin’s natural processes

Blood circulation, nutrient supply and cell regeneration run at top speed overnight.

Night cream contains rich, nourishing ingredients to support these natural regenerating processes so you wake up with soft, supple skin.
