Night Creams By Skin Type

Article Daily Moisture Head

Throughout the day, our skin plays a defensive role, protecting itself from a multitude of external aggressors. When we sleep, our skin is equally active, working to repair the damage caused during the day and renew itself. Choose a night cream that best compliments your skin type: aging, oily/acne-prone, sensitive/dry or normal/combination.

Aging Skin

Anti-aging night creams generally contain higher levels of benefit ingredients like retinol that are ideal to use at night and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use. Also look for peptides—proteins that enhance skin renewal and target skin’s natural collagen.

Oily/Acne-Prone Skin

Light, oil-free gel night creams are the best choice for acne-prone skin. Look for products that contain alpha and polyhydroxy acids to improve skin texture and refine pore size while you sleep.

Sensitive/Dry Skin

Products that contain humectants—ingredients that retain moisture—are ideal for restoring moisture to sensitive, dry skin—day and night. Look for products containing gluconolactone polyhydroxy acid and lactobionic acid to soothe, gently renew and restore, leaving skin smoother, hydrated and more luminous.

Normal/Combination Skin

Nighttime is the best time to target lines and wrinkles, even skin tone and improve roughness and texture. Look for products containing lactobionic acid and hyaluronic acid to attract moisture to skin’s surface layers to plump and firm skin, minimize the appearance of wrinkles and enhance skin clarity.
