Some people hit a wall in the afternoon, the feeling that they will crash if they don’t get a nap, a latte, or a sugary snack. But for other people, their skin hits a wall—by midday, their face feels dry and flaky and their foundation seems to crack and make lines, and uneven rough patches look more pronounced. If you are one of those people, you know that moisturizing is the key to keeping dry skin at bay. But hydrating the skin isn’t a one-and-done job—you need to moisturize at the right time, and use the right moisturizers.
How to Build Skin Care Routines around Hydrating Night Cream and Day Cream
The first thing you want to do for around-the-clock hydration is to set up daytime and nighttime skin care routines. This way, you are giving your skin constant nourishment. But it’s important to realize that your morning and evening routines may look a little a little different from each other. That is because your skin has different needs at different times of the day. For instance, you apply sunscreen in the morning for coverage during the day, but you obviously don’t need it while you are sleeping. Conversely, that super-rich night cream you slather on in the evening may not work as well under your makeup (and sunscreen!) in the daytime.
So you want to find products tailored to the time of day as well as to your particular skin care needs. If your skin tends to be dry, that means you want to keep it well moisturized. To achieve plump, smooth-looking skin, DERMA E’s Hydrating Collection is just what you need. All of the products in the line feature hyaluronic acid, renowned for its water-retaining capabilities, as a key ingredient. Here’s how to break it down into morning and nighttime routines, with a hydrating night cream and day cream as the centerpiece for each one.
Cleanser: When you wake up, you’ll want to have a clean face as a base for the products you’ll be putting on. You also don’t want to strip your skin of moisture with something too drying, so use DERMA E’s Hydrating Gentle Cleanser. It gives you a gentle clean while perfectly prepping your skin by leaving it soft and supple.
Eye Cream: If you didn’t get a great night’s sleep, the Hydrating Eye Cream will help you look much more awake than you actually feel. The hyaluronic acid provides the extra hydration the delicate skin under your eye needs and visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines. In addition, the eye cream’s vitamin C helps brighten the look of your skin, which is especially helpful in lightening up dark circles.
Moisturizer: Here is the crucial step for locking in moisture. Our Hydrating Day Cream quenches your skin’s thirst with a superior combination of hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E, green tea, and aloe. Your skin will immediately glow and look plumper and more youthful.
Sunscreen: Don’t leave home without applying this in order to prevent damage from the sun’s UV rays. DERMA E offers a host of sunscreens to choose from so you can pick what works best for your skin type.
Cleanser: It’s equally important to have a clean face at night, especially to get rid of the dirt and other impurities that can build up on the surface of your skin throughout the day. Our Hydrating Micellar Cleansing Facial Wipes are exceptional at removing makeup and cleaning the skin.
Serum: This lightweight liquid soothes the skin and is outstanding at helping diminish the look of wrinkles. This is a great way to put your skin care to work for you while you sleep. Try the Ultra Hydrating Serum for the superior hydration hyaluronic acid provides.
Night Cream: Paired with our serum, the Hydrating Night Cream provides unbeatable moisturizing. This super-rich formulation feels luxurious on the skin. You’re rehydrating, conditioning, and re-texturizing the surface of your skin, so your complexion in the morning looks fresh and radiant.
Those are the basics. You can also add on special treatments once or twice a week, such as masks and exfoliating scrubs. If your skin is chronically dry, carry the Hydrating Mist in your bag so you can get a quick moisturizing spritz during the day if you need it.
When creating skin care regimens, it’s important to use only the best products with ingredients you can trust. DERMA E skin care is 100% vegan and cruelty free; it’s also free of harmful ingredients such as parabens, GMOs, soy, sulfates, mineral oil, lanolin, and more. Using these products also ensures your skin stays hydrated because they are crafted with nourishing vitamins, botanicals, and minerals. They will help impart a healthy vibrancy to your complexion.
So don’t fall into a dry skin slump—you can enjoy soft, smooth, moisturized skin around the clock with the right skin care routines.
