Great Skin With Free Overnight Delivery by Solvaderm

Monday, 18 January 2016

The importance of using a night cream cannot be underestimated. As we sleep, the body's regulatory systems adapt to our resting state to allow it to recuperate. Increased blood flow to the skin combined with a reduction in cortisol levels due to a reduced inflammatory response mean that cells are optimized for renewal. Add in the production of somatotropin or Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in the deep sleep phase and the regeneration of skin cells occurs. This makes night time while we are sleeping, the ideal time to employ both moisturizers to hydrate and nourish the skin and serum treatments that yield long-term benefits.

Solvaderm's Suvoderm is a nutrient rich night cream designed to help accelerate cell renewal. Containing Retinol (Vitamin A) and Niacin (Vitamin B3) it promotes the repair and regeneration of the epidermis in its most receptive state.

Day vs Night

While both day and night creams are essentially moisturizers the distinction between the two lies in what they are designed to do. While day creams defend and protect the skin from environmental hazards including UV rays, dust and dirt, night creams help the skin to renew itself and repair any damage caused during the day. In particular, they help with battling oxidative stress and any issues arising from the body’s inflammatory response. During the day cortisol levels in the body are higher and linked to increased adrenaline output, the body’s fight or flight response. What this does is put the body’s systems on high alert by reducing their functions; appetite is suppressed, tissue and bone formation are reduced. However during the night, cortisol levels fall allowing both for repair of damaged cells and growth of new ones. This means that the uptake of topical treatments such as moisturizers and serums is optimized while we sleep and that certain antioxidants are better absorbed by the skin during the night.


While it is untrue that Retinol (Vitamin A) will cause damage to the skin if applied and then exposed to the sun, its mechanism of action to help the growth of collagen and cell renewal makes it more effective if absorbed into the skin during the night. Also known for its ability to help reduce areas of hyperpigmentation and wrinkles caused by UV damage, it is seen as counter intuitive to wear it during the day as its role is restorative rather than protective.


As the active antioxidant in Vitamin E, a-Tocopherol is most effective at fighting damage caused by free radicals when applied at night. This is because UV rays interfere with the absorption rate of antioxidants and, therefore, the full benefit of them cannot be achieved if worn during the daytime.

Amino Acids

During the deep sleep phase when the skin’s metabolism is working at a faster rate than during daylight hours and the body’s growth hormone is produced, amino acids are better absorbed and work to deliver nutrients to the skin.

These three ingredients, along with a range of others Solvaderm have selected, work to deliver you glowing skin while you sleep.
