As a night creme: Clients are always fascinated to learn that at night, the skin repairs itself from the days damage. It's an amazing process, but one that's often overlooked and misunderstood. At night, skin experiences several changes:
Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) increases, causing the skins protective hydrolipid barrier to weaken, allowing for greater penetration of active ingredients.
The skin's own natural antioxidant levels increase. Skin repairs from the day's damage from exposure to environmental aggressors, such as UV rays, smog, nicotine, etc. and rejuvenates itself. Oil production is two times lower at night than during the day.
What are the benefits of a dedicated nighttime skin care plan? The same routine is followed both morning and night: start with cleanser and end with moisturizer. But when the sun goes down and skin starts to work the night shift, you can take advantage of its physiological changes to maximize visible results--and see skin that looks firmer and younger in the morning.
Directions: Apply a small amount to entire face, neck and decollete. May be used morning and night. Avoid eye area. Use of sunscreen is recommended.
