Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated—or confusing. Most dermatologists we’ve talked to over the years agree that there are just three essential steps to building a solid routine for healthier skin: cleanse, moisturize and protect. (Any additional treatment—like a retinol or exfoliant—can be added in as needed if you have specific concerns like acne or fine lines.)
Since we’ve already covered the best facial cleansers and sunscreens, this leaves us with moisturizer. More specifically, let’s break this out into a guide to the best night creams. And if you’re wondering whether you need a separate day and night cream, the short answer is no. There are plenty of moisturizing sunscreens and face moisturizers with sun protection that you can use during the daytime.
