Little did you know that the still night hours are a crucial time for your skin. When you're sleep, your complexion is hard at work strengthening its moisture barriers, helping you wake up in the morning to skin that feels repaired, rested and rejuvenated. Make the most of your nighttime hours by sealing in precious moisture with an effective night cream.

Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Pamper your exhausted complexion overnight with an intensive night cream that offers a variety of benefits, from deeply moisturizing to softening and evening out skin tone. "Prevention" is a fan of Midnight Recovery Concentrate from Kiehl's, which uses a blend of evening primrose, squalane and hydrating oils to give your skin a fresh, dewy, youthful and super-quenched appearance.


Work on protecting your complexion's lipid barriers -- and youthful radiance -- during the darkest hours of the night with the Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream from Olay. "InStyle" lauds the budget-friendly moisturizing night cream, which they say increases your skin's natural elasticity and firmness while also helping to eliminate problems including fine lines, dullness, uneven coloring and flakiness.

Naturally Ageless Night Creme

If you're looking for a natural option in night creams, "Redbook" recommends the Naturally Ageless Night Creme from Burt's Bees. As you're resting at night, the cream works hard battling the free radicals that lead to signs of aging, including loss of skin resilience, fine lines and wrinkles. Wake up to a firmer and more supple face after applying the all-natural pomegranate-based product.

Advanced Lightening Night Cream

If one of your skin woes involves discoloration and unevenness in texture, "Allure" admires the Advanced Lightening Night Cream from Elure, which helps fade out conspicuous skin discoloration. Attain a smoother complexion with the rich night cream, which consists of melanozyme for melanin deconstruction. Not to mention, the cream is also deeply moisturizing and nourishing.
