Enhance Your Beauty Sleep By Using A Good Quality Night Cream

We’ve all heard the saying about getting our “beauty sleep”. Seems like that old saying could be closer to the truth than we imagine because the body actually does most of its repairing while we are asleep.

It makes perfect sense to support our body’s repairing and replenishing processes by using a good quality night cream. So what should you look for in a good quality night cream?

What is Your Skin Made Of?

To understand what a good night cream should consist of, we need to think about what the skin is made of.

tick-green Protein. The skin consists of different ingredients that support the elasticity and suppleness of the skin such as filigrin, collagen and elastin. Each of these are proteins found in the epidermal cells. Filigrin acts like a glue to support a healthy skin barrier. Collagen supports the connective tissue while elastin acts like a coil and recoils like a spring to give elasticity to the skin.

Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF)and water retaining ingredients. The skin typically contains ingredients that act like a reservoir and attract water from the atmosphere. They include Sodium PCA and Sodium Hyaluronate.

Lipids or fats. The fats of the skin consist of  ceramides, free fatty acids, and cholesterol. Lipids protect the skin and form a layer around each cell (known as the lipid bilayer). Ceramide is essential for supporting the skins barrier function.

Antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Antioxidants such as Vitamin E and C are essential for free radical protection.  Other vitamins and minerals found in the skin include vitamin A, B’s and zinc.
