How to Choose the Right Day Cream for Your Skin Type

Super Facialist Day Creams on marble table

With so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the right day cream for your skin. But, understanding the importance of this step in your skincare routine can help make the decision easier. 

Day cream serves as a barrier between your skin and the environment, protecting it from UV rays, pollution, and other harmful elements. It also helps to lock in moisture and prevent water loss, which is essential for maintaining healthy, hydrated skin. 

At Super Facialist, we offer a range of day creams and moisturisers designed to address different skin types and concerns. 

The first step is to identify your skin type and your primary and secondary skin concerns. As the Super Facialist range is a collection of targeted skincare solutions, this will really help to find a day cream that will suit you. 

We know this can sometimes get a bit confusing so we have come up with a summary of what could be the right choice for you… 


Vitamin C+ Skin Defence Moisturiser 

Super Facialist Vitamin C Daily Moisturiser


If you're looking to add more radiance to your skin or combat dullness, the Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Defence Daily Moisturiser is the perfect solution. This moisturiser is formulated with Vitamin C, which aids in collagen synthesis and increases skin density, resulting in brighter skin. Additionally, the lightweight formula contains Hyaluronic Acid and Ferulic Acid, both known for their hydrating and antioxidant properties, which help to smooth out fine lines. To top it off, this moisturiser has UVA/UVB filters that provide extra protection for your skin.

Retinol Anti-Ageing Day Cream 

Retinol Anti-Ageing Day Cream


The Super Facialist Retinol+ Anti-Ageing Renewing Day Cream is a popular choice for the 40+ skin!  

Retinyl Palmitate (a form of Retinol), Hyaluronic Acid, White Tea Extract and Shea Butter are boosted with the active ingredient from White Lupin Seeds which helps to stimulate cell regeneration, boost collagen and improve elasticity of the skin.  

Retinol can increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun and cause sunburn, so it's important to always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 when using Retinol products during the day. It's also recommended to start with a lower concentration of Retinol and gradually increase usage to allow the skin to acclimate to the ingredient.

Hyaluronic Acid Firming Day Cream

Super Facialist Hyaluronic Acid Firming Day Cream 

Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient in skincare due to its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, providing deep hydration to the skin. Combined with other key ingredients such as shea butter, a tetrapeptide, and hibiscus extract, this day cream is formulated to improve skin's firmness and elasticity, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote a more radiant complexion. The addition of UV filters also helps to protect the skin from sun damage. It's an ideal choice for those in their 30s who are starting to see the first signs of ageing.
