Multi-step routines can be tiresome on those nights when you need some good shut-eye, but a really good night cream can be an important addition to your skincare routine, especially if you have dry skin. Dermatologists agree that nighttime is when your skin restores itself, and night creams tend to address concerns that are distinct from daytime moisturizers, such as intense hydration and ingredients that fight visible signs of aging. They’re also a lot thicker, and they tend to be packed with exfoliators that smooth the texture of skin, as well as photo-sensitive ingredients like retinol.
Check out our list of the best night creams for dry skin for an extra boost of moisture—and be sure to read up on our fave moisturizers for dry skin, while you’re at it!
