The power of Chronocosmetics: rejuvenate while you sleep

Always at the leading edge with the latest advances in the industry, the Natura Bissé Diamond Extreme Night Dual Treatment is a unique ritual based on the science of Chronocosmetics that fights the natural process of skin aging. Would you like to know more about it?

Anyone interested in skincare knows how important sleep and rest are to having radiant skin. It is also more than likely that they know the difference between day creams and night creams. But what they may not know is that this distinction is often based on the science of Chronocosmetics, the beauty-related application of chronobiology, a discipline that studies the biological rhythms of living beings and how they affect the way an organism functions. Precisely for his research in this field, Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young won the Nobel Prize in Medicine 2017.


As with our bodies, our skin follows schedules, biological rhythms that serve as its "internal clock." Notable among these are circadian rhythms, 24-hour cycles based on the daily periods of light-darkness that regulate skin and other functions.

It is scientifically proven that, while skin cells focus all their energy during the day on defending and protecting themselves from ultraviolet rays and other external aggressors, at night, they renew and repair. Since cellular division is involved in the renewal process, it leaves cells' DNA more exposed and vulnerable. Because of this, the skin performs this work at night, when there is less risk of being exposed to external aggressors and when its DNA has a lower risk of being harmed.


Chronocosmetics was born to strengthen the skin's own natural processes to increase the results of the treatments as much as possible. Its basis is creating products intended to be applied at specific times, according to what the skin needs based on its circadian rhythms. These products work in synergy with skin and stimulate their own biological machinery, thereby multiplying the benefits of the products' active agents.


At night, skin is in "repair mode" and more effectively absorbs the active ingredients. The ideal, then, is to select ingredients that also have the purpose of regenerating skin; your skin and the cosmetic work together, ensuring the product's success. Additionally, our production of collagen and elastin increases while we sleep, making it the perfect time to use cosmetics that stimulate their production.

Following this philosophy, Natura Bissé created Diamond Extreme Night Dual Treatment, its first chronocosmetic ritual designed to rejuvenate the appearance of skin night after night. This night time treatment is comprised of two products:Diamond Extreme Oil and Diamond Extreme Mask.
