Sweet dreams, Overnight creams you need to try before bed

I know, I know.. the skincare world nowadays can be kind of scary. There are so many items out there that it can be hard to distinguish what exactly you need.

When it comes to my core items, I use a cleanser, toner, eye cream, serum, and moisturizer. Now with that being said, I have my daytime products and my nighttime products. Clearly I get a lot of skincare items, so this is the easiest way for me to actually use these items, but when it comes to moisturizers, I like to use something thicker at night.

When I was away in Montreal I actually received a lot of nighttime moisturizers, which came at the right time considering how cold it’s getting and the importance to put on something thicker when you sleep.  You want to hydrate your skin all night long so if you are looking for some great moisturizers to sleep in, then keep reading..

Drunk Elephant F Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial

Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial

When it comes to my favourite skincare brands, Drunk Elephant is definitely high on the list.

I’ve used a bunch of their products so whenever I see they release a new one, I need to get my hands and face on it.

The F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial (C$68) is an overnight mask that plumps and restores skin with electrolytes that also help to strengthen the skin’s acid mantle.

The formula includes niacinamide, sodium PCA, plant squalene, five forms of ceramides, omega fatty acids, and antioxidants. If also features tiny beads that are full of Vitamin F. It helps to restore moisture to dry skin, as well as soothe skin and improve the signs of damage, aging, uneven tone, and texture.

Apply a few pumps of this to your skin at night to wake up with hydrated skin.

Neostrata Overnight Anti-Pollution Treatment

Since skin renewal happens when you sleep, it’s important to give your skin some TLC before you go to bed.

Neostrata’s newest nighttime moisturizer, the Overnight Anti-Pollution Treatment (C$58) is designed to target lack of radiance, rough texture, and stressed skin that are caused by pollution and daily aggressors, all while you get your beauty sleep.

The formula contains Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) to help minimize the visible damage from daily pollutants, as well as lilac plant cell extract in an amino acid hydration formula that will give you a restored appearance and prepares skin for the day ahead.

Skinceuticals Glycolic Brightening Renew Overnight Cream

Skinceuticals is another favourite skincare line of mine so whenever they release new products, I instantly get excited.

The Skinceuticals Glycolic Brightening Renew Overnight Cream (C$110) is their newest launch and it is designed to be incorporated into your nighttime routine gradually.

This cream is formulated with a free acid value of four per cent glycolic acid to dissolve cellular cohesions and promote cell turnover. It also has two per cent phytic acid to promote skin clarity and brightness. Apply this to your skin to wake up with more even skin texture and tone, as well as brighter, more youthful-looking skin.

Skinceuticals also says you can use this after a chemical peel, professional brightening, or clarifying treatment as it will act complementary to those services.

Start gradually with this, limited use to every other evening and then after one week you can apply every night.  It’s also important to apply a sunscreen in your daytime routine the morning after use.

DermaE Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Overnight Facial and Hydrating Eye Cream

DermaE Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Overnight Facial and Hydrating Eye Cream

If you often wake up with puffy skin, then take a look at DermaE’s Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Overnight Facial (C$24.64).

This gel moisturizer is filled with hyaluronic acid to moisturize, as well as alkaline to boost your natural moisture barrier, replenish pH levels, and nourish skin as you sleep. This mask also contains Alkaline water beads that melt into your skin when they hit it so you can wake up well-rested, balanced, and radiant.

Pair this mask with their Hydrating Eye Cream (C$30.59). I always use an eye cream day and night and if you don’t have one already, then I seriously recommend you invest in one.

Apply this cream to your eye area morning and night to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, as well as hydrate the area. This eye cream also contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate, soften, smooth, and tone skin.  It also contains antioxidants Pycnogenol, green tea, jojoba oil, and Vitamins A, C, and E to nourish, hydrate, and de-puff the delicate eye area and keep it looking radiant and young.

Overnight creams from Drunk Elephant, Skinceuticals, Neostrata, DermaE

As we head into the chillier months, I do recommend looking into investing in a moisturizer specifically for nighttime use. You don’t have to run out and buy one right now but as you finish up your favourite moisturizer, maybe just keep this in mind as you shop for some new ones to replace it.

Do you use a different moisturizer specifically for night?
