Night Cream...Getting that Baby-Smooth Skin


Smooth... supple... soft... and clear... We all want to have baby-perfect skin.

Nourishing Night Cream


For most of us, that's not too much trouble when we’re young. But after forty, and especially after fifty it gets tougher, doesn’t it? At middle age and beyond good skin is not happening on its own.

Why Do We Need a Night Cream?

A night cream is designed to nourish and moisturize. It fights the fine lines and dry skin. In addition, a good night cream has to combat the reduced skin elasticity that aging brings. What’s more, a night cream works while you’re sleeping.

Day creams—primarily moisturizers, most of them—are lighter in texture, in viscosity, than night creams. Night creams tend to contain more in the way of nourishing, anti-aging active ingredients to help renew cells, restore elasticity, and combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A good night cream must also help repair the damage caused by sunlight, pollution, makeup, and free radicals.

Night creams also tend, in particular, to be oilier. That heavier texture results in part from those different ingredients. A night cream’s higher viscosity also helps the cream stay on your face, which often comes in contact with sheets and pillows while you sleep.

Here’s a fact you might find news…Your skin itself is different at night. Specifically, your skin both loses more moisture at night, and peaks at night in its ability to absorb active ingredients. The more natural and organic the ingredients in your night cream, the better it is for your skin.

Tough truth: You’ve got to have a preservative as long as a cosmetic product contains water. 

Can
you make a cream without preservatives? Strict truth: No—depending on what you mean by cream. So what’s the next best thing? Answer: a product that isn’t strictly a cream, but behaves like one. The only possible starting point would be cold-pressed oils. But then the problem becomes: How to make the product look and work like a real cream, and not like an oil? That was my challenge. And we overcame it.

The result, in my night cream: a luxurious emollient consistency. The light, heavenly scent of Ylang Ylang oil. Use my night cream, and you get the feel of a spa treatment, and you get it every night. Yes, it does have a somewhat oily feel, because it doesn’t contain any water. But, better, it also contains no preservatives, and contains no ingredients at all that will interact in any undesirable way with your skin.
