Why Day Creams? Health Book- Day 130


The secret to a luminous and rejuvenated skin lies in your skin care regimen. The world knows about cleansing, toning and moisturizing. However, many don’t know about the right cream for skin for day and night. Skin care giants encourage women to use creams at different times of the day. The reasons? Let’s analyse why to use day cream -

During the day your skin is exposed to many environmental stressors like dust- pollution, humidity, temperature shifts besides the harmful UVA/UVB rays of the sun. Even when you are indoors, your skin is exposed to UVB
rays.  The UVA rays damage your skin superficially(the dermis) that cause skin burns, tanning or inflammation, while UVB rays are present in the normal light indoors and harm your skin from inside(the epidermis), causing aging or dark spots. Stress, hormonal imbalance, anxiety and other natural snags of human body directly effect your skin. With so much pressure on your body, your skin is the first thing to give away and show signs of aging or wear & tear. Hence a day cream is recommended to shield your skin and protect the skin cells.
Day cream has SPF to protect your skin. Besides this, a day cream has lot of other ingredients that nourish, moisturize, hydrate skin which is absolutely necessary for the skin cells to remain intact and firm. Choose your day cream as per your need, age and skin type.

For those in early 20’s, should opt for a day dream infused with moisturizer, nourishment of Vitamin A, or natural ingredients that keeps collagen intact.

30-40 years of age- Since fines lines of aging start to appear in early 30’s, this is the time when you should choose day creams laden with SPF 15  and more, antioxidants, retinol and alpha hydroxyl acids.

40’s and above- Select a day cream with broad spectrum moisturizer, peptides, retinol to strengthen collagen and control age spots.

Watch out for the content in your day creams, besides selecting the ones according to your skin type. You may have oily, dry, combination or normal skin type. All will fit into the age category while selecting any brand. The market is flooded with numerous brands of day creams. Make a wise choice for your skin.

A day cream is usually light textured so as to allow the skin pores to breathe. The non greasy formula absorbs into your skin easily. Once you apply day cream, you can apply makeup over it. SPF lotion alone is not enough for your skin during the day.
