Whatever skincare regime you have, you probably include some sort of day cream, even if you don’t know it.
Your day cream is often a form of moisturiser, as its main task is to hydrate the skin.
It often might sometimes seem like a simple product, but it can have a wide variety of uses, and is gentle enough to be applied to the skin every single day.
This makes it popular and versatile. So find out more about why it should be a feature on your bathroom shelves.
What is a day cream?
Most of us think of a day cream as a day moisturiser, but it can often much more than this.
Its primary task might be to hydrate the skin, but it will often also include some form of sun protection.
Where a day face cream differs from many other facial skincare products is that is will not include active ingredients such as retinol, glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acids.
These are very potent when it comes to daily use and all have the potential to irritate the skin when exposed to the sun.
A day cream is much more suitable for use every day, due to the type of ingredients it is based on and is particularly good for sitting beneath make-up.
It should sink into the skin quickly and easily, making your make-up application easier and smoother. Day creams usually have a lightweight formulation that still allow the pores to breathe.
A day cream can still have anti-ageing properties by keeping the skin plump and hydrated.
We love the Sukin Purely Ageless Day Cream an anti aging face cream which is infused with White Hibiscus and Baobab to help plump the skin, whilst the use of Pure Ribose can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Which day cream should I use?
There are day creams to meet all kinds of different skin needs, so it is important to choose wisely.
You should take notice of your current skin type and what your primary skin concerns are, in order to choose a day cream that is best suited to you.
Whether you are looking for something that will help protect your skin from environmental factors, hydrate dryness or help you reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing, there will be a day cream for you.
For example, the Dr Organic Rose Otto Day Cream includes a complex proprietary blend of ingredients to offer anti-ageing properties, whilst the Balmonds Cooling Cream contains aloe vera and cool menthol to soothe hot or flushed skin or to work as an after-sun cream.
The Holland & Barratt CBD Day Cream is a CBD moisturiser which uses the antioxidant rich CDB ingredients, combined with hemp seed oils, to reduce the negative effects of free-radicals and attempt to reduce the appearance of signs of ageing, in order to make your skin appear plump and youthful.
It is important to remember that many CBD products are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 18.
Anti-ageing is an important consideration for many people when looking for a day cream, and Vitamin E is a key ingredient.
These multitasking creams work hard for your skin, despite being relatively gentle. They contain a whole host of natural ingredients that are great for the skin, whilst still treating it with care. There are all sorts of benefits associated with using a day cream on a daily basis and that makes it a staple for most beauty routines.
