Do I Really Need Separate Day and Night Creams?

 

s78Do you really need separate day and night creams? The answer is yes! Day creams provide a barrier to moisture loss, protect against sun and environmental damage, and work in tandem with your make-up. The role of a night cream is different.

s99

Richer in texture, a night cream usually contains higher concentrations of active ingredients designed to repair the skin while you sleep and a day cream won’t give you that full replenishing benefit for night time.

Dry Chapped Hands

s445

We all know as soon as the cold weather comes our hands take a beating. Being a hairdresser, my hands are always chapped and dry as a bone. My cure-all in these winter months for dry chapped hands is using a salt scrub followed by an intense moisturizer.

When your hands are dry and chapped the main goal is to slough off all those dead skin cells.  A salt scrub is a cleansing, exfoliating product of basically salt and oil that will make your hands (and body) softer and healthier. Be careful if you are using a product such as this in the shower, the oil can make your shower very slick and slippery.

Salt scrubs generally run around thirty dollars but there are many homemade recipes to make your own. There are three ingredients in making your own salt scrubs, sea salt, almond oil and a few drops of essential oils.  If you tend to have sensitive skin you can replace the salt for sugar.

So, if you have dry chapped hands and want them silky smooth you might want to try this.

The Decollete’

One of my favorite beauty tips.

The decollete’ is the skin on the neck and chest area.decollete

This area is very delicate, has no fat, and shows all the telltale signs of aging such as dryness, wrinkles and sunspots.  Hydrating day and night in this area is very important in keeping the skin looking younger.  Use a cream facial wash instead of using soap or body washes.  Creams that are developed for your face will hydrate while cleansing.  Follow up with your facial moisture cream with sunscreen by day and night cream before bed..  Slather the moisturizer down the neck and across the decollete’ for maximum hydration.
