Skin Repair At Its Peak During the Night
When I think of cold cream, or night cream, I think of those big tubs of Ponds with the green screw-on lid. Anyone else? I also think… just another beauty myth, as I'm a strong believer in the concept that it only matters what you put into your body, not what you put on it. Your glow, so to speak, will more often come from eating healthily, taking vitamins and exercising—not a night cream. But, now, there seems new evidence that perhaps I should give ol' Ponds—or any other "resurfacing serum" or "recovery complex"—another look.
According to the NYTimes.com, "research has shown that certain physiological changes that happen
at night may enhance the effectiveness of some creams. Skin temperature rises, as does water loss leading to
slightly drier skin, " Dr Jenny Kim, associate professor of dermatology, says. She adds: "If your water loss is higher, theoretically due
to less of a skin barrier," a moisturizer "can improve the
skin barrier." Additionally, she says, nocturnal blood flow is higher, and anywhere where there is increased bloodflow allows for a higher absorption rate.
