Everything you need to know about night creams
Moisturising is an important step in any skincare routine. Any cream that does not contain an SPF is a night cream. Most people use a cream to moisturise but serums, lotions and lightweight gels can also hydrate your skin depending on your skin type. A good night cream will be full of ingredients that work to restore your skin's natural barrier, keeping it healthy and radiant, especially in winter, when your skin has a lot to endure from harsher weather conditions.
Beauty sleep for dry skin
Skin’s surface layers consist of 10% to 30% of water. Maintaining this is extremely important and a big challenge for people with dry skin. When your skin's moisture level is in order, your skin stays supple, flexible and better in retaining skin-like substances that protect it against external influences. The most important thing is to keep the skin's barrier intact so that moisture is better retained. Help your dry skin by using a rich cream in the evening that is packed with antioxidants and skin-healing ingredients. Use a cream as the last step in your evening routine, after cleansing, toning, exfoliating and applying a serum or booster. If desired, follow with a separate product for the eye area.

Beauty sleep for oily skin
A normal, balanced flow of sebum through the pores prevents dryness and keeps skin supple. If you have oily skin, too much sebum is being produced. Pores become larger because they are stretched too much and the excess sebum can mix with a buildup of dead skin cells and cellular debris, leading to blackheads and whiteheads (clogged pores). A lot of people with oily to combination skin are afraid of using night-time moisturisers because they are usually too rich and make oily skin worse. Nevertheless, oily to combination skin also needs hydration. In fact, oily skin can also be dehydrated at the same time. Opt for lightweight, oil-free moisturisers which are more suited to oily skin types to keep your skin's barrier healthy and hydrated.
