Dr. Hauschka says skip the night cream

Night cream is probably one of those beauty products that never goes missing on every woman's skincare regimen. However, holistic skincare specialist Dr. Hauschka suggests skipping the night cream and "your skin will thank you" for it.

Seriously.

According to Dr. Hauschka, using night creams means keeping the skin moisturized for 24 hours. That may seem like a good thing at first, but it actually interferes with the skin's regeneration and its essential functions of balancing oil production and expelling impurities. Keeping the skin moisturized round the clock "sends a signal to sebaceous glands to cut down on moisture production, resulting in even drier skin that becomes dependent on moisturizing products just to appear 'normal'.”

The team at Dr. Hauschka recommends using their Rhythmic Night Conditioner instead of more traditional night creams, since it supports the skin's regenerative processes during the night, and helps balance oil production.

Given this, would you ditch your night cream? Have you tried using Dr. Hauschka's Rhythmic Night Conditioner in place of your night cream? Tell us what you think!
