Should I use moisturizer at night?

Reading time: 7 min

Have you ever considered pampering your skin before bed? What exactly does a moisturizer do at night? This common question has a simple answer: moisturizing at night is essential for maintaining the health and youthfulness of your skin.

Let's dive into the importance and benefits of applying moisturizer before you sleep.

The Role of Moisturizer

Moisturizers are truly superheroes in skincare, its primary role of a “face moisturizer” is to add humidity to the skin and help to prevent it from drying out again. This hydration is very important to overall skin health, specially to maintain a strong healthy barrier, to avoid dark spots, wrinkles, etc.
However, moisturizers offer a range of additional benefits that are worth exploring.


Why Moisturizing at Night is Crucial

Do you feel a moisturizer is an unnecessary step in your night routine? Trust us, it's critical. While you sleep, your skin naturally loses moisture, leading to a dull, rough, and dry appearance, so applying an extra effort or reinforcing the humidity before going to bed is key. Don't even consider skipping it! 

Even oily skin needs moisturizer at night?

The short answer is: yes. Moisturizing helps keep the skin hydrated and regulates oil production, which can reduce excess oiliness over time. 

If you have oily skin look for light, oil-free moisturizers or gel-based formulas that won't clog pores or feel heavy on your skin. For example, our Post Workout Gel Mask with hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and niacinamide that provide hydration without adding excess oil.

Or C-bomb Moisturizer, an oil free formula with vitamin c and panthenol, specially designed to  defend your skin against everyday stressors. 

What to look for in a moisturizer

Choosing the right moisturizer is key to effective skincare, this can be a serum or cream. We recommend to look for moisturizer that contain: 

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Vitamin C 
  • Panthenol
  • Centella asiatica
  • Green tea

Jess Beauty tip: Ensure your night moisturizer is non-comedogenic to avoid clogged pores.

Why is it important to use a moisturizer?

Top 4 benefits of using a good moisturizer at night:

  1. Soothe Sensitive Skin

Got red, irritated skin? Have dry, itchy patches? Skin in general requires care but for sensitive skin it needs to be more conscious. 

Choose a moisturizer that is free from artificial fragrances, go for a product containing natural agents such as aloe, chamomile, amongst others. Try our Post Workout Gel Mask that contains all these beneficial ingredients that keep your skin hydrated, calm redness and reduce inflammation.

  1. Prevent Dryness

Cold weather or hot weather, air conditioning or indoor heat; did you know that all of these environmental factors can suck the moisture right out of your skin? That’s where a good moisturizer comes in. It not only replaces moisture that’s already been lost but helps prevent future loss.

3. Slow Signs Of Ageing 

Adding moisturizing in the night regimen from an early age will help to reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process. This simple yet effective habit keeps your skin moisturized, smooth, and youthful for longer. By nourishing your skin every night, you build the path for healthy skin in the future.

Pampering your face after being given a good treatment of hydration is all that can be helpful in slowing down the process of aging. Try our Timeless Skin retinol Cream that contains hyaluronic acid, and retinol, keep your skin hydrated, eventone and less wrinkle as you wake up. 

4. Help Fight Acne

Adding moisture to oily skin might seem counterintuitive, but it helps. Hydrated skin produces less oil, reducing the likelihood of pore blockages and acne. Choose lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizers to avoid aggravating your skin. 

Begin your bedtime routine with Jess Beauty products like post-workout gel mask and C Bomb moisturizer. These products contain hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin to lock in moisture and maintain youthful skin.

Best Time To Use Moisturizer 

Moisturizer is a vital step in both your morning and night skincare routines. Applying it before bed is particularly important as your skin enters repair mode at night. A nighttime moisturizer supports your skin's natural renewal process and prevents overnight dehydration, ensuring you wake up with a glowing complexion.

Jess Beauty tip:  Do you feel uncomfortable putting something on your face at night? Then it's better to apply moisturizer 30 to 45 minutes before bedtime and wash it off with plain water.
