How to Select the Best Night Cream for your Skin

How to Select the Best Night Cream for your Skin

The Best Night Cream: The Beauty Expert Edit

The classic query, which night cream is for me? With so many to choose from, we’ve created an edit of the best night cream formulas that target a variety of skin concerns. As we all know, it’s important to select a high-performance night cream as it helps to condition, hydrate and repair the skin as we sleep.

The reason we recommend to use a separate day cream and night cream is that the two formulas have independent functions. During the evening, the skin is more receptive to concentrated ingredients and experiences greater cell regeneration. It is also more susceptible to water loss which can lead to skin feeling tight and dry in the morning. Advances in skincare technology have meant that is now easier than ever to select skincare that combines powerful ingredients chosen specifically for their overnight results.

When it comes to skincare layering, night creams should be the final step in your routine, following facial oil. When in doubt, it’s always advised to apply your skincare from the thinnest formula to the thickest.

    Erno Laszlo Phelityl Night Cream

    A classic product from Erno Laszlo, the Phelityl Night Cream is a bestseller for a reason. A combination of emollient-rich ingredients that act to hydrate and re-energise the complexion by morning time, the formula delivers intense moisture to support the skin’s natural barrier and soften the appearance of ageing. We recommend this night cream for all skin types as it is a lightweight consistency that promotes overall skin health.

    Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream

    The ingredient that took 2018 by storm, retinol shows no signs of slowing down. What retinol does slow down, however, is the skin’s natural breakdown of collagen (the skin’s natural building block). The Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream utilises industry-leading Retinol Tri-Active Technology which is a form of time-release retinol.

    Absorbing quickly to allow the youth-boosting ingredients to work overnight, expect a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines with continued use. For best results, use alongside the Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum and Eye Serum.
