Why Do You Need To Use Anti Aging Day Cream?

 As women age their skin changes: pores enlarge, lines begin to appear, loss of moister and luster. This starts to happen as early as your twenties. However, a good skin care routine can combat the signs of aging. Starting young with a strong skin care routine is your best weapon to ensure that by the time you reach your fifties and sixties your skin will still glow. 

 Why at Day?

The most important weapon in a women’s arsenal to combat aging is her anti-aging day cream. This is a light moisturizer that you wear everyday, under your make-up. You need this cream to protect your skin. First, it protects you from your own cosmetics, which have tendency to dry out your skin. Secondly, it protects you from the elements: sun and wind. Most anti-aging day creams have UVA protection from sun exposure, which causes discoloration and cancer. Too much sun damage also causes a drying effect that makes your skin more prone to wrinkles. So you see, daily use is very important. Some women believe you only need UVA protection during the summer but that is not true. Skin damage from sun exposure happens all year long, despite the temperature outside. 

Exposure to you environment is only one part of aging. The other is time. As you age, your skin is battling the loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural occurring substance in the body, mostly in joints and around the eyes. Anti-aging day creams help fight and slow down the loss of all these important natural elements.
Anti-aging cream with anti oxidants will destroy free radicals, another enemy of your skin. in preventing skin aging.

Difference between Anti- Ahing: Day Creams and Night Creams

When choosing whether to use a day or night cream, many will choose the night cream. So what exactly is the difference between the two? 

The main difference is that anti-aging day creams are lighter than night creams and usually contain SPF in them.
The SPF in anti-aging day creams is there to prevent burning, damaging free radicals, and ingredients to make skin look energized. 

Day creams are usually light on such compounds as alpha-hydroxy acids and retinoids because these ingredients can make skin more sensitive to the sun.

Anti-aging day creams are lighter because they are meant to be worn underneath cosmetics. They must be non greasy in order for pores to breathe and for your skin to absorb quickly. Their non greasy formula allows foundation to glide on smoothly. 

Night time creams are more hydrating and heavier with more effective ingredients since they are intended for night time wear to reduce irritation from UV exposure.

These Doesn't Mean mean that night creams are more active than day creams. This just means that your skin is more active in repairing at night than during the day.

Many prefer to use night creams only because that is when you skin is most effective at absorbing the working ingredients. It really depends on preference when choosing whether to use a day or night cream. 

Choosing the Best Anti-Aging Day Cream 

By knowing your skin type before you go skin cream shopping, you'll have a better chance at finding products that work specifically for your skin's type.

It is difficult as it is because there are so many different brands to choose from for day and night. 


In you twenties, look for a day cream with an SPF of 15 or higher.
