How to Select the Right Night Face Cream

How to Select the Right Night Face Cream

Even if you don’t use a facial moisturizer during the day (which you should!), you really should use a night face cream to help your skin to recover from damage caused by the elements and pollutants in the air. Choosing the right night face cream for your skin can make a big difference in the results you get from using it. You will need to take into consideration a few main factors to make your selection.

First, you will need to determine what type of skin you have to choose a night face cream. There are generally considered to be four main skin types when it comes to the face. These are normal, oily, dry, and combination. Combination skin usually means that the T-zone, or the area from the chin to forehead vertically and the forehead itself vertically forming a T, is oily while the cheeks tend to be dry. Normal skin is on that is a bit more difficult to describe, and it generally means skin that is neither excessively oily nor excessively dry.

If you have oily skin, your night face cream should be a lighter moisturizer that does not clog pores as oily skin is more prone to breakouts. It also needs less moisturizing as a general rule. If you have dry skin, a heavier night face cream that imparts more moisture to the skin is required. For normal skin you should choose a night face cream that is somewhere in between to keep your skin balanced. Combination skin is the hardest to choose a night face cream for; the best bet is to use the cream sparingly on the T-zone and focus on the cheeks.

Another thing to consider when selecting a night face cream is the age of your skin. Youthful skin has more elasticity and often needs less moisture. Old skin will require a little more moisture. For older skin you may also want to select a night face cream that provides some anti-aging properties, such as retinol, to help the skin regain some of its youthful look overnight.

You should always cleanse your skin carefully prior to applying your night face cream. It should be the final step in your evening beauty routine. You can often select products that work together well such as a line of products designed to cleanse, tone, and then moisturize. When applying your night face cream as the final step, be sure to pay attention to the cheeks and the neck as well.

Choosing the right night face cream is often a matter of trial and error and you may have to try several before you choose the right one. Some places will allow you to try samples of the product before you buy, and most companies will accept a return of the product for a full refund if you aren’t satisfied. This saves you a lot of money in your search for the perfect night face cream and makes it a lot easier to find the right one easily.
