Crème de jour, crème de nuit, interchangeable ?

Day cream, night cream, interchangeable?

 

If you’re one of those who think that one cream is enough for both morning and evening, as it’s all the same, you might change your mind after reading on! They are highly complementary, and it’s not just a marketing argument; your skin needs both, with specific ingredients that correspond to the skin’s needs and its environment: protection during the day and regeneration at night. Of course, it’s not a catastrophe if you use the same cream, but you’re missing out on optimal care for your skin, and that’s a shame! It’s a bit like having a bare face during the day and wearing makeup at night. 😊

 

What are the differences between day cream and night cream?

Function:

  • Day Cream acts as a shield. It hydrates the skin throughout the day and protects it from water evaporation and external aggressors that accelerate aging (pollution, sun, wind, cold, heating, temperature variations, and even tobacco). It plays a protective role, strengthens the skin’s hydro-lipid barrier, plumps it, and provides suppleness, radiance, and comfort.
  • Night Cream detoxifies and regenerates. At night (between 11 PM and 4 AM), the skin is at its maximum regeneration capacity, microcirculation accelerates, and cells renew themselves at a rate up to 8 times faster than during the day! While we sleep, collagen and hyaluronic acid production is at its peak. Toxins and waste accumulated during the day are eliminated, and the skin is ready to receive active ingredients that help it repair from daily aggressions. Of course, the skin has a sophisticated natural defense system, but it is often overwhelmed by the level of external aggressions and becomes less effective over the years. So, it needs assistance to recharge its batteries and wake up refreshed and radiant.

Active Ingredient Differences:

  • Day Cream is formulated with moisturizing, protective, and potentially anti-aging ingredients.
  • Night Cream is more concentrated and rich in ingredients that stimulate the skin’s natural repair and regeneration capabilities, along with moisturizing, nourishing, and soothing ingredients.

Texture Differences:

  • Day Cream has a lighter, more fluid texture that is not greasy and absorbs easily to prepare the skin for makeup.
  • Night Cream, being more concentrated in active ingredients, is creamier, richer, and nourishing.

Can we put the same one or interchange?

  • Night care has no role as a shield that can protect the skin during the day, and can be too oily for the day, thus complicating makeup.
  • Day care offers less lipids and regenerating active ingredients at a time when the skin needs them least.

It is therefore necessary to have a separate day cream and night cream.

Ideally, you should choose them from the same brand because the formulas will have been developed to offer very complementary active ingredients, acting in synergy.

When should you apply a night cream?

 

Night cream is valuable even for young skin because, in addition to its curative role, it also has a preventive role. And, without wanting to alarm you 😊, collagen production begins to decrease from the age of 25, as does blood circulation, leading to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and more.

Additionally, night cream detoxifies, and there’s no age limit for that! It’s never too early to start with a suitable skincare routine.

The TiL routine

Our philosophy is to offer the skin an essential and universal skincare routine without an abundance of products.

They are all formulated with Tiliactiv4®, our exclusive soothing, antioxidant, and regenerating active ingredient, which replicates the entire activity of the linden tree using biotechnology. A global anti-aging solution, it addresses all beauty markers thanks to:

  • Its potent anti-inflammatory properties that soothe and inhibit inflammation caused by stress and external aggressions.
  • Its powerful antioxidant action: by combating free radicals, it reduces oxidative stress and slows down the signs of aging.
  • Its intense hydrating activity thanks to polysaccharides, more effective than hyaluronic acid.
  • Its visibly anti-wrinkle action: Astragalus protects collagen and elastin fibers, supporting the skin and slowing down accelerated skin aging and wrinkle formation.

It’s at the heart of our day cream, “La Crème de Beauté,” and our night cream, “Le Baume Qui Ressource,” and it’s combined with complementary French plant-based ingredients each time to ensure maximum effectiveness for the specific functions of day and night care.

With remarkable efficiency, it removes impurities and nocturnal secretions in the morning and makeup, pollution traces, and dirt in the evening. It leaves the skin pure and soft, fresh and radiant, to the extent that even teenagers see their skin change! Its secret? Tiliactiv4® also contains some AHA, which gently exfoliates, allowing daily removal of dead cells and promoting cell renewal. A true radiance booster without the risk of irritation, especially since linden is rich in flavonoids, unifying and brightening the complexion.
