To ensure you have all the battles for your skincare please check out the following posts:
Hello my lovelies! The final skincare battle is being fought. We have made our way through cleansing, toning, serums, eye cream and moisturizers, and sunscreen. Today we approach our final battle, Night Cream. At night you would still follow the first four battles to cleanse and prep your skin. But instead of a day time moisturizer, you would use a night one, and you don’t need sunscreen at night.
So what is the difference between moisturizer you wear in the day and one you wear at night? The main difference is that a day cream usually has an SPF and is a lighter formula than a night cream. Night creams are generally thicker, and have ingredients that work their magic while you sleep, away from the sun’s rays.
So there are a number of night creams out there. Which one should you use? Well that really depends on what your skin needs and what your budget allows. Below you will find a few options for different skin types.
For Dry Skin: Philosophy Miracle Worker Overnight Moisturizer
This product has an abundance of skin-softening ingredients, and hyaluronic acid, glycerin and squalane to hydrate your skin. It has a smooth texture, it is gentle and has a subtle scent. It also can help firm your skin. $87 at philosophy.com
