Our bodies naturally repair themselves while we are asleep. This natural repair process also includes our skin cells. Skin cells actually replace themselves quicker than any other cell in the entire body - especially during night time. This is why moisturizers are ideally applied at night, in order to give the skin get the nutrients it needs to repair itself overnight.

Night creams are normally thicker than daily moisturizers. This is because night creams contain richer formulas that can penetrate the skin deeply and encourage skin cells to reproduce. These highly concentrated moisturizers work dramatically to plum up the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Night creams should be applied right after the face is cleansed - or most ideally after a bath or shower. Steam from a shower or bath will encourage the pores to open so night cream can penetrate deeply and work its magic. Also remember to apply your night cream approximately 30 minutes before you go to bed. This way it will have a chance to sink in and not transfer to your pillowcase.
