NO, YOU DON'T:
YES, YOU DO:
My overall conclusion is:
• Night creams are thicker, heavier (sometimes oilier) versions of regular moisturizers.
• You can use a day cream as a night cream (preferably no spf).
• The skin should be cleansed at night so it can rejuvinate and balance itself naturally, without moisturizers (possibly) clogging your pores or adding unnecessary chemicals.
• Using moisturizers 24/7 doesn't fully allow your skin to breathe.
• If your skin is dry, it should be fine to use a light application of moisturizer overnight on the dry spots.
• If your skin is oily, a night cream is NOT your best bet.
• Basically, night creams are NOT necessary! I would just use your regular moisturizer, but not all the time. I think even skincare products with "good for you" ingredients shouldn't be used daily just so your skin can have some product-free open air.
I was also pondering if it was okay or not to use a moisturizer that contains spf as a night cream. Here's some opinions on that:
