Have you hopped on the night cream train yet? They’re more than just a nighttime moisturizer. They’re designed to target your skin during its regeneration process and deliver skin-healthy ingredients to repair any damage and promote collagen production and hydration.
When looking for a new night cream, dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D. says it’s best to look for formulas that contain retinol as it’s one of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients. “Retinol is the best-studied ingredient we have over the counter to fight the signs of aging. It stimulates collagen and elastin to strengthen the skin’s foundation to improve lines you already have and prevent new ones from popping up,” he tells Southern Living. “It is important to find a product that has a stabilized form of retinol that can penetrate into the skin to do its job effectively.”
Here are some dermatologist-recommended retinol night creams that will have you looking more radiant and refreshed when you wake up:
