In this day and age, our skin has to battle every day against harmful environmental agents, including pollutants and damaging UVA and UVB rays. While it's very important to protect our skin from these things during the day, it's equally as important to support its auto-recovery at night. For this reason, it’s essential to ensure that you have a night cream that you love and trust as a staple in your beauty routine.
I have said it before and I will say it again; the evening is the perfect time to take a moment for yourself and add some pampering into your skincare routine.
This cream provides the perfect moisture boost to help replenish dry and mature skin. Keeping your skin moisturised is essential for every skin type. But, it’s especially important for those with mature skin, because dryness can exaggerate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This Night Recovery Cream is rich with luxurious ingredients, which can soak into your skin uninhibited overnight.
Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E: Full of Antioxidants
Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10 both act as very rich antioxidants. This means that they are both able to neutralise pesky free radicals within the environments that can be very damaging to the skin cells. Free radicals are unpaired oxygen molecules which cause oxidation to occur in the skin cells by hindering their ability to function normally by damaging parts of the cell such as: proteins, cell membranes and DNA.
As well as this, Coenzyme Q10 is an ingredient with a lot of other interesting skincare benefits, especially when it comes to mature skin. When your skin doesn’t have enough Coenzyme Q10, its ability to produce collagen and elastin is seriously impeded.
Collagen is what makes your skin feel firm and youthful, while elastin provides the skin with flexibility. So, without them, your skin is more likely to develop fine lines and wrinkles.
Vegan Hyaluronic Acid: A Moisture Boost
Hyaluronic Acid is one of those fantastic ingredients that people in the beauty world just cannot stop raving about. Here at Green Keratin, we love this wonderful ingredient. In fact, it’s been the focus of a couple of our previous blog posts, which you can read here.
The reason we are so obsessed with Hyaluronic Acid is because of its ability to provide the skin with an intense moisture boost. Hyaluronic Acid actually has the ability to bind up to 1000 times its own volume in water, making it perfect for dry and mature skin types. Hyaluronic Acid helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles because it improves the skin's elasticity by keeping it moisturised. The extraordinary hydration provided by Hyaluronic Acid is precisely the reason I love it so much. As someone with very dry skin, it is now one of the ingredients that I always make sure to include in my skincare routine.
Organic Shea Butter and Aloe Vera Juice: Helping to Soothe
This seriously is a night cream that does it all. Not only does it help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and provide the skin with a boost of hydration, but it also contains ingredients that act as anti-inflammatories. Both Shea Butter and Aloe Vera Juice have fantastic anti - inflammatory properties. So, they are perfect for banishing any redness or hyper-pigmentation as they soak in overnight!
Naturally, they are also fantastic moisturisers. Shea Butter, harvested from the fruit of the Shea Tree, is rich with fatty acids and natural vitamins, which help smooth and soften the skin. Aloe Juice is also great for dry or flaky skin as it moisturises without making the skin feel greasy or heavy. This is something that is definitely reflected in the consistency of this Night Cream. Although its formula is very luxurious, it does not feel heavy on the skin and soaks in almost instantly without making it feel weighed down.
Tips for Application:
This cream is perfect to apply in the evening, just before you go to bed, so that the formula has time to recover after a long, hard day. The formula contains organic chamomile and lavender oil, a beautiful aromatherapy blend which is known to help you relax and promote a restful sleep.
All you have to do is gently massage an even layer into the face and neck after cleansing. Then, you can leave this beautiful Night Cream to work its magic!
