5 Anti-Aging Night Creams That Dermatologists Recommend For Hydrated Skin

June 24, 2018 by Emily Belfiore

We’re really hard on our skin. Between all of the makeup we wear that clogs our pores and the hours we spend out in the sun soaking up its harmful UV rays, there are a lot of factors that can damage it and suck the moisture out of it.

“Every day of our lives, we’re making and breaking down collagen thanks to an enzyme in the skin called collagenase,” says New York City-based dermatologist Debra Jaliman, MD. “But as we age, we break down more collagen than we make, and that’s one of the reasons we get wrinkles.”

Dermatologist-Recommended Night Creams

That’s why it’s important to have the right skincare products in your arsenal, especially night creams. They’re designed to target the skin during its regeneration period to help repair and hydrate it to reveal healthier skin in the morning. Dermatologists recommend using formulas with retinols and alpha hydroxy acids because of their amazing anti-aging benefits.

Best Night Creams For Dry Skin

Need help picking the best night cream for your skin? Here are 5 of the products that dermatologists swear by for younger, hydrated, and healthy skin:

tata harper moisturizer

Tata Harper Repairative Moisturizer ($110) 

 

Los Angeles-based dermatologist Dr. Annie Chiu, MD, loves this because it is "a hydrating, but not overly rich moisturizer" that contains "water-retaining hyaluronic acid and anti-inflammatory botanicals like lavender oil, which make it a nice lightweight moisturizer for those with sensitive skin."

karen grossman night cream

Karyn G Restructuring Night Cream ($75) 

 

Dr. Karyn Grossman, MD, who has helped famous clients like Molly Sims and Linda Evangelista, developed her skincare line to address "all the signs of aging." She loves her brand's night cream because it "works on hydration, barrier repair, exfoliation, inflammation, and DNA repair" while also naturally boosting collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin. 

skinbetter anti-aging product

SkinBetter Science Regenerating AlphaRet Overnight Cream ($110) 

 

Dr. Estee Williams, who is a dermatologist in New York City, is a fan of this overnight cream because it simplifies her nighttime routine. "It contains both retinol and exfoliating lactic acid, and the pump dispenses just the just the right amount of the stuff," says Williams. "I love pairing this with SkinBetter Science's Alto defense serum because it keeps skin care streamlined."

neutrogena retinol night cream

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer ($23.99) 

 

New York City-based dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, recommends this drugstore-favorite nighttime moisturizer because of its powerful retinol content. "Retinol is the best-studied over-the-counter ingredient we have in fighting signs of skin aging,” he says. “But not all retinol is created equal, so it’s important to choose a product that has a stable formulation and proven effectiveness.”

dej night cream

Revision D.E.J. Face Cream ($140) 

 

“My favorite is Revision D.E.J. Face Cream, which has the added bonus of Vitamin C and can help to smooth fine lines,” dermatologist Maura Caufield, MD, explains. She says this night cream is best for those who are using a prescription retinol and need a non-irritating night cream that offers extra hydration.
