Day creams function as your daily moisturizer and step in your morning skincare routine. Different day creams can target different skin concerns and different skin types like dry skin or oily skin.
What is a day cream?
A day cream is a moisturizer specially formulated for use during the morning and daytime – they often have a lighter texture than skincare designed for use in the evening time.
Do day creams contain SPF?
Daily use of sunscreen is important regardless of your skin type and regardless of whether it is sunny outside. Not all day creams contain SPF (although some do) so it’s important to check the information on your day cream to understand this.
How do I choose the right day cream for my skin type?
The day cream you choose can be influenced by either your skin type, your skin concerns, or both. Some day creams can help with anti-aging, wrinkles, oil-control, and dullness.
When should I apply day cream?
Day cream should be applied to the skin in the morning after cleansing your skin and using a face serum (and eye cream). If your day cream contains SPF use it as the last step in your morning skincare routine before applying your makeup. If your day cream doesn’t contain SPF make sure to use a sunscreen after applying your day cream.
