My grandmother always had the most baby soft skin all the way into her seventies — I can still remember the velvety feel of her cheek as she wrapped me into a hug. She attributed her incredible skin to the rich moisturizing cream that she diligently applied every night before bed. I used to watch her go through her skincare regimen when I’d spend the night, and it was impressed upon me for life: never ever ever go to bed without cleansing and moisturizing with “your night cream.” No surprise that our Beauty Council members have some strong opinions and incredible recommendations when it comes to their own nighttime treatments. Keep scrolling for their picks!
During the warmer months, my skin doesn’t need a heavy night cream. Instead, I dab on a few drops of this delicious, natural face oil, and my skin looks healthy and happy in the morning.
I can’t even begin to tell you how obsessed I am with this little beauty product shop in Palm Desert. All of their products are made from raw organic superfoods, most of which are grown in the coachella valley. I use their Nourish Night Cream and love it.
I absolutely love both of these products whenever my skin needs a little extra moisture.
I’m obsessed with this day or night cream because you wake up with plump lovely fresh skin.
After just a few uses my skin was smoother, firmer and more youthful looking.
I like to use oils and serums in place of night moisturizers, specifically Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. I used to work there so I know all about the incredible science behind it. It really works! For face oil, I like Sisley Black Rose Oil. It really plumps and hydrates.

Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate
I have an insane night time routine, but right now, I’m loving this line-reducing concentrate.
I have super dry skin so wearing this intensive moisturizer with real honey overnight is the perfect means to keeping my skin healthy and supple looking. Sometimes in the winter I even blend it with a face oil for extra hydration.
Pro Tip: Use this with a good exfoliating routine (I love using the Clarisonic brush) and you’ll have dewy youthful looking skin in the morning.
This herbal-scented moisturizer will get your skin through the toughest winter, yet it’s light enough to use year-round.
