Sleep tight

Dr Irena Eris PROSYSTEM HOME CARE Nutri Ritual

The active work of skin cells takes all night. When we sleep, the hormones responsible for the renewal of your body (and skin) are working most intensively. Moreover, this is when our body gets rid of toxins. It’s also when your skin absorbs the active substances contained in the products we apply. Skin support fibers regenerate themselves, epidermis gets restored, and the amount of water in our body is balanced. Our body also gets the oxygens it needs, allowing the tissues to be more malleable. When you’re resting, your skin must get rid of all the harmful substances it accumulated during the day, replenish the shortage of water and nutrients, and repair the damages.

This is the reason why night care creams are completely different from those intended for use during the day when it is more important to ensure protection from harmful external factors and proper tension, firmness, matt effect or illumination. At night, we should first and foremost support the skin’s natural ability to regenerate and renew. During the night, skin cells multiply intensely – the cell cycle may be even 10 times faster than during the day. The skin is also well supplied with blood and oxygen, and able to better absorb active substances when cleaned from makeup.

Those struggling with excessively dehydrated skin and damaged protective lipid barrier should use face creams which contain such substances as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and plant oils (monoi, shea butter, peach, soy). On the other hand, those of you who are experiencing problems with the loss of elasticity and wrinkles should choose creams containing peptides, vitamin C and E, and creams you can use to perform an auto-massage at home
