Q & A: Why Can’t I Use Night Cream All Day?

night creamQ. Why can’t I use a night cream during the day?

A. You could, theoretically, use a night cream during the day. However, if you’re planning on leaving the house, it’ essential that you use a moisturizer with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.

Night creams are also formulated to help hydrate the skin while you sleep. As such, they are often richer than moisturizers designed for daytime use, and may make your skin appear shiny during the day. If you’re in need of a very hydrating daytime moisturizer for extremely dry skin, you’ll want to use a separate, richly emollient moisturizer that contains sunscreen.

As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.
