Day vs Night Skincare Explained: Your Ideal Skincare Routine

Day vs Night Skincare Explained: Your Ideal Skincare Routine

Posted 17.03.2023

Skincare routines are essential for maintaining healthy and glowing skin, but only when you use the correct products at the right time of day (or night)! Day and night routines serve different purposes and have distinct steps to ensure your skin stays healthy and radiant. Let’s delve a little further into the differences between day and night skincare routines and introduce our favourite products for each.

Day Skincare Routine:

Your day skincare routine should be all about protecting the skin from environmental aggressors such as UV rays, pollution, and blue light. The aim is to keep your skin hydrated, nourished, and ready to face the day ahead.

  1. Cleanser - The first step of any skincare routine is cleansing. Start your day with a gentle cleanser such as our Rosewater and Chamomile Cream Cleanser. Containing our signature Soothing Complex of Rosemary, Cornflower, and Chamomile, it balances and protects the skin’s delicate microbiome from environmental aggressors and pollutants.
  2. Vitamin C Serum – Our Vitamin C Brightening Day Serum is an excellent addition to your daytime skincare routine. It contains antioxidants that help to brighten your complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and protect your skin from environmental stressors and UV-induced cell damage.
  3. Moisturiser - Hydration is key to maintaining healthy skin. Finish off your morning routine with a hydrating moisturiser such as our Hyaluronic Firming Day Moisturiser. It’s formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, which helps to plump and firm your skin whilst boosting radiance day after day.

Night Skincare Routine:

Your night skincare routine should be all about repairing and rejuvenating your skin while you sleep. At night, your skin goes through a natural regeneration process, and the aim is to provide your skin with the necessary ingredients to support this process. 

  1. Cleansing Balm - The first step in a night skincare routine is to use a cleansing balm such as our Soothing Seed Oils Cleansing Balm to remove makeup (if wearing any), dirt, and impurities. Packed with anti-inflammatory plant extracts to nourish and strengthen the skin barrier and complete with a spa-like scent, our cleansing balm will get you ready for a dreamy sleep.
  2. Cream Cleanser (Optional) - After removing your makeup with a cleansing balm, use our Rosewater and Chamomile Cream Cleanser to remove any remaining dirt and impurities.
  3. Serums – After cleansing, now is the chance to apply all your active ingredients for any skin concerns you have. A popular active to use is Retinol since it reduces the appearance of fine lines. However, if you have sensitive skin or would much rather use a natural alternative, then Bakuchiol is your answer. Our Bakuchiol Miracle Night Serum helps to boost collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture without irritating the skin.
  4. Eye Cream - The delicate skin around your eyes needs extra care. Our Bakuchiol Restoring Eye Cream is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid which retains moisturise into the skin, Elderflower Extract to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, and Bakuchiol to minimise fine lines and wrinkles.
  5. Night Cream - Finish off your night skincare routine with a face cream that provides deep moisture and is high in Ceramides like our Intense Repair Night Cream. It’s formulated with nourishing ingredients such as Cerafluid which targets skin reconstruction overnight, and Evening Primrose Oil to soothe and heal the skin.
