Day Time Moisturizer vs. Night Time Moisturizer

Do I really need a different moisturizer at night? Simply put, YES, you do. The focus of your daytime skincare products (like our Day Time Intensive Moisturizer) should be to protect, treat, and help prevent further damage to your skin; at night, however, you want your cream to be dedicated to surface cell renewal and repair. That’s because when it’s light out, your skin is in defense mode, warding off free-radical damage from the sun and pollution—and so the moisturizers and serums you use should contain antioxidants, like Olea Europaea Fruit Oil and potent hydrators, such as hyaluronic acid, that will strengthen and support the skin in its battle with the elements.

All Night Long…

Once we’re between the sheets, our body is no longer exposed to many environmental factors, and our skin can naturally repair itself as we sleep. At this point, you want ingredients in a moisturizer that will boost the regeneration that’s already occurring. Top on the list: retinol, which research has shown can help stimulate cell turnover and collagen production and even help reverse the visible signs of sun damage, which has been shown to be as effective as cosmetic Cucumis Sativus on mature skin. Also helpful are peptides which can hydrate to firm skin and help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Kurious & Co Night Time Intensive Moisturizer  is packed with high levels of glycerin, niacinamide, and prunus amygdalus dulcis oil (almond oil) to give your skin its most powerful nighttime boost.

What’s Weight Got to Do With It?

Another common difference between the two moisturizers: Their weight. Night creams tend to be heavier than Day creams, and for good reason.

 Our skin naturally loses water at night, so a thicker cream can help seal in moisture along with the active ingredients. Also, depending on your skin type or the season—cold winter air is notorious for stripping skin of moisture—you may need extra hydration.

During the day, try Day Time Intensive Moisturizer, for intense hydration with a luxurious, cloud-like texture that works beautifully under makeup. At night, apply the Night Time Intensive Moisturizer to wake up with a gloriously smooth and hydrated complexion.
