From hot, sticky summer days, to cold, dry winter nights, our skin can’t seem to catch a break. Finding a routine to maintain moisture without causing greasiness can be a daily battle and finding the right products can be even harder. It seems like there’s a cream for everything nowadays, which makes it tough to pick the right one for what you need. Allow me to make things super simple and let you in on the best beauty secret when it comes to moisture: the night cream.
While we sleep, our bodies are actively recovering and our skin is no different. The hours that we spend getting beauty rest are vital in keeping our skin healthy and glowing during the day. Our skin naturally goes into recovery mode at night, creating necessary moisture and nourishment. However, the pollutants, stress and changing climates we face everyday make it difficult for our skin to achieve a full, natural recovery. This is where the magic of night cream (or sleep masks) comes in. These are my picks for the glowiest nighttime moisturizers for enduring hydration and rejuvenation.

This water-based night (or day) cream provides just the right amount of moisture for normal or oily skin. Infused with vitamin C for brightening and vitamin E for healing, your skin will look hydrated and healthy in no time.
New from our favorite doctor, this certified natural night serum incorporates a lovely Rose Apple scent with essentials for a radiant complexion. A little goes a long way with this new serum, so you should really savor every drop. It’s also perfect for all skin types.
