The night cream your skin needs
Author: Danielle Cauchi Date Posted:25 June 2019
It can be disheartening when you use a face mask or peel and then fifteen minutes later, you remove the mask and reveal a face that looks no different.
We can all get a little impatient with these sorts of skincare solutions, but we need to understand that it is a gradual process that will only get better in time.
If you can relate to this, you need to add an effective night cream to your routine that will work tirelessly while you sleep. That way, you won’t be constantly peeking at the mirror and taking ‘before and afters’. Instead, you’d be giving your skin the chance to heal itself and absorb all the restorative ingredients.
The L’Oreal Revitalift Cicacrem Anti Wrinkle + Repairing Night Cream is a non-greasy yet hydrating night balm that penetrates the skin to halt and repair the signs of aging and bring about a more youthful complexion over time.
This cream is hypoallergenic, paraben free and suitable for those with sensitive skin.
What makes it effective?
The star ingredient responsible for anti-aging, hydrating and healing is Centella Asiatica, also known as Tiger Grass.
This old botanical is found in damp areas and has been used medicinally since the 17th century.
The plant is used in the treatment of many diseases and disorders but is most commonly used for treating eczema and psoriasis.
Also known for its anti-aging ability, the plant is referred to as the “herb of longevity” in Sri Lanka because the elephants (who have an impressively long lifespan in the animal kingdom!) enjoy munching on its leaves so much.
Centella Asiatica contains a powerful combination of anti-aging nutrients including beta carotene, fatty acids, phytochemicals and amino acids which also hydrate and soothe aggravated skin.
The plant is helpful in firming sagging skin as it improves circulation and encourages the synthesis of collagen and skin tissue which promotes skin elasticity.
Centella Asiatica’s healing properties also make it a great natural remedy for reducing scars.
The L’Oreal Revitalift Cicacrem Anti Wrinkle + Repairing Night Cream is available now for $16.95 (RRP $32.95).
