It’s no secret that winter is the harshest season for the skin, but there are still plenty of people struggling to find solutions to dry, cracked skin. Stuck on what to do about those pesky dry patches? Dermatologists recommend focusing your attention to your nighttime routine and suggest trying a hydrating night cream or overnight mask.

What Does Night Cream Do?

“We know that the skin has its lowest levels of hydration at the end of the day,” Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, says. “We also know that the skin undergoes cell division overnight, making it an optimal time to apply products that help strengthen the skin.”

Keep scrolling to shop our favorite overnight masks that not only help with replenishing hydration but also provide plenty of skin-healthy ingredients to promote a glowing and rejuvenated complexion in the A.M.
