The night hours are when your skin takes the time to rejuvenate itself. Although you may not realize it, your skin is working overtime as you sleep to restore and replenish itself. Why not help the process along by applying some night cream? Get on the path to smooth, soft and totally hydrated skin by regularly using night cream. What could be easier than working on your beauty as you catch up on your zzzs?

Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Night Cream

Fortify your skin's protective barrier as you sleep every night. To accomplish this, "Elle" recommends the Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Night Cream from Lumene. If your skin is on the sensitive and dry side, strengthen it up by nourishing and hydrating it with the creamy combination of detoxifying cloudberry nectar and vitamin E. Stop your precious complexion from giving in to the harsh consequences of free radicals due to environmental factors.

Revaleskin Night Cream

If your skin suffers from blotches, redness and discoloration due to oversized capillaries, "Elle" suggests the Night Cream from Revaleskin. The lightweight night cream consists of algae and aloe, both capable of reducing capillary size and therefore helping your complexion appear smoother, brighter and more even. Since the moisturizer is infused with the antioxidant coffeeberry, it also can defend the skin against aggressive free radicals and irksome signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines and crow's feet.

ROC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

If aging is your primary skincare concern, opt for an anti-aging night cream that will help you wake up to refreshed, softer and youthful looking skin. "Elle" is a fan of the budget-friendly Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream from ROC, which nourishes your skin with minerals, including copper, zinc and magnesium. The retinol-infused cream promotes cell renewal to keep your complexion looking supple, firm and totally energized -- all day long.

Elure Advanced Lightening Night Cream

Whether due to excessive sun exposure, the aging process or simple genetics, dark spots and patches on the complexion are a reality for many people. If this happens to be an issue for you, "Allure" backs the Advanced Lightening Night Cream from Elure. The night cream's active ingredient is melanozyme, a mushroom derivative capable of melanin deconstruction. The unscented cream has a rich, pampering texture and works to fade darker spots and even out your complexion -- and you don't even have to be awake.
