3 Night Creams For Your 20s, 30s And 40s That Actually Work

3 Night Creams For Your 20s, 30s And 40s That Actually Work

It’s never too late to start using a night cream, or so my mother always told me. I’m a firm believer in beauty for all ages; nothing should be restricted or off limits regardless of the decade you find yourself in. However, now and again, we have to substitute old favourites for something with a little more oomph as our skin has different needs the older we become. A night cream is particularly?important because cell renewal and skin rejuvenation occur mainly at night: the growth hormone that builds and repairs body tissue is secreted during deep sleep so we can aid this process by using the right produce whether they address hydration, luminosity or anti-age. Age is not a problem to fix, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to look your best and if a night cream makes you feel happier when you look in the mirror first thing, what could be bad about that?

Here is our pick of three brilliant night creams, whether you’re in your twenties, thirties?or forties:

In Your Twenties

Clinique Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer, €48

3000

While many twenty-somethings enjoy clearer skin than the teenage years, some can be left with the results of acne scarring. Clinique don’t harp on about this one much, and I’m never sure why; it’s an excellent skin-sloughing moisturiser and one of my favourite products today. No cream will work drastic miracles, but this works great on smoothing mild to moderately acne-scarred skin, and for keeping skin soft and hydrated.

In Your Thirties

Clarins Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream, €59

10553602-1345047422-950108

As you approach thirty, your skin gradually loses its natural luminosity; skin cells get sluggish, and it looks noticeably duller.?Clarins? Multi-Active range will combat this; it’s designed for women in their thirties to combat the first signs of early ageing. ?The cream is light in texture and excellent for tired skin, restoring brightness and elasticity by morning (it works to plump fine lines), while moisturising without being heavy.

In Your Forties

Estee Lauder Advanced Time Zone Age Reversing Night Creme, €74

37902-estee_lauder_advanced-time-zone-night-age-reversing-line-wrinkle-creme

 

Keeping skin’s elasticity and anti-age concerns are high on the skincare wishlist for many women in their forties. Time Zone Night has an elegant texture and formula that’s loaded with antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients,?which are designed to lift and plump the skin. It also contains a special nighttime amino acid complex designed to optimise skin’s natural replenishment of wrinkle-smoothing collagen, fighting fine lines and wrinkles. Refreshingly, it doesn’t feel heavy, and you should see a noticeable difference after a few weeks of use.
