Every girl dreams of clear and glowing skin. And really, what could be better than not having to work too hard to get that skin? Well, night creams are here to do just that! Read on to know how night creams work and which ones will suit your skin type best!
1. What Are Night Creams?
Night creams, as the name suggests, are creams that have to be applied and left on overnight. Unlike day creams, which are formulated to protect the skin from the harmful rays of the Sun and the pollution, night creams are designed to nourish and repair your skin. These creams work while you sleep to give you clearer and smoother skin. Could there be an easier way to get glowing skin? We don’t think so!
2. What Kind Of Night Creams Should You Use?
While choosing a night cream, it is important that you choose the one that suits your skin type. Whether your concern is dullness, dry skin, oily skin or ageing, there is a night cream for you! We give you the best night creams you should be using for your skin type! If you have any of these concerns, then you should definitely invest in a cream to maximise your beauty sleep!

7. When Should You Apply Night Creams?
Most night creams come with specific instructions on how and when you should apply them. As a general rule of thumb, they have to be applied every night after cleansing. Since night creams are heavier, they should be applied after you have applied your spot creams, serums and under eye creams. We think it’s an important step to add to your skin regime by the time you hit your mid-twenties to keep your skin look fresh and healthy always.
Well, there you have it! Go ahead and buy a night cream that works for your skin type and see the difference.
