What is the difference between night face cream and day face cream?

The main difference is ingredients. Night creams include exfoliating and active ingredients that make your face more sensitive to sunlight, which isn't a problem when you're asleep. Instead they can get to work to regenerate your skin while you rest, so you're left with a glowing complexion in the morning. Day creams, on the other hand, often include sun protection and high SPF to shield you from any photosensitivity.

Night face creams are also richer, heavier formulas, while day face creams are more lightweight. Night creams have the chance to fully absorb during your eight hours of rest, whereas day creams are usually lighter because you will be wearing makeup products on top.
