Having a nighttime routine is important — it's how you signal to your body that it's time to wind down and go to bed. For us, we can't go to sleep without first completing our nightly skin-care regimen, and you shouldn't either. Whether you follow a quick and effective three-step routine or a complex eight-step routine, it should always end with a moisturizer or a night cream.

Night creams are moisturizers or creams formulated specifically for nightly use. This can be because they contain ingredients that are only intended for use in the p.m. (like retinol or AHAs) or are simply a thicker formula meant to absorb slowly while you rest. Night creams can target a variety of skin-care concerns — dryness, discoloration, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and dullness — and work for all skin types, depending on the type you use.

Your skin enters repair mode while you sleep, which is why it's great to incorporate a night cream formulated to help you achieve your skin-care goals. After cleansing and applying your serums and treatments, moisturizer is like the icing on top of the cake.
