We have been media-conditioned into thinking that we all need a rich night cream to tackle the signs of ageing…but why?
Did you know that oil-rich night creams can actually be counter productive when it comes to fighting anti-ageing? Heavy oils occlude the surface of the skin therefore interfering with the skins natural water exchange processes.
The skin can become ‘thirsty’ and dehydrated during the daytime hours and the weighty oil part of the cream may, over time, stretch and enlarge open pores.
Try to choose creams that encourage natural moisturisation whilst allowing any ‘Active’ ingredients to penetrate; lactic acid and hyaluronic are great examples.
