Top 10 night cream

The idea that night creams are only for women is out of date. Also, we have to take you out of the dream if you think men's skin doesn't break out before age 50. Sure, you can take the gamble in hopes of growing old "like fine wine" a la George Clooney. But we suspect he's also been using a night cream for quite some time. We're going to provide you with the information, tips and our favorites for letting your skin do the work for you at night. All you have to do is lubricate.

Why a night cream for men?

Why are we talking specifically about men? Because men's skin is different from women's skin. On average, men's skin is a lot (up to about 20%) thicker than women's skin, so it needs a different approach. Also keep in mind that many men sometimes shave their facial skin on a daily basis. That, too, obviously has a big impact on your skin. Men also have a lot more sebaceous glands on the face than women. Unfortunately, we also produce 2x as much sebum in a day and have more and larger pores than the average woman.

So you won't get away with sneaking on your wife's / girlfriend's or best friend's night cream, considering your skin usually needs other ingredients to repair itself.

A day cream is just as important, fact. Day cream provides protection during the day, but we find that night is often forgotten. This while your sleep is the best time for your skin to recover. At night your cells repair themselves and a good night cream supports this process. In this way you slow down the process of aging of your skin. A night cream offers several functions, which we will discuss in more detail in a moment.

What types of night creams are there?

There is no one type of night cream. You can find different types of night creams, including gels, creams and balms. Each type of product contains a property that is good for something. For example, you have hydrating night creams that properly regulate your skin's moisture levels. There are also anti-wrinkle creams. These creams (obviously) combat skin aging. Then there are the moisturizing creams, which allow you to say goodbye to your dry skin. Look and feel what your skin needs.

Buying a night cream, what to look out for?

To find the best suitable night cream, you first need to know what skin type you have. For example, do you have dry skin? Then go for a moisturizing night cream.

When you have properly cleansed your face and waited for 10 minutes, we recommend that you take a paper towel and press it tightly against your forehead. When the piece of paper stays clean and is not greasy, you have normal skin. You have small pores and firm skin with sufficient elasticity.

Are there greasy spots on the tissue and do your cheeks and nose have a mild sheen? Then your skin is oily. Does nothing happen with the paper, but your skin feels tight and sensitive and flakes are visible? Then your skin is too dry.

Of course, you may also not recognize yourself in the above skin types. It could be that you have aging skin and are looking for a suitable face cream. In our webshop you can read per product which cream suits your skin type.

Different ingredients in a night cream

Now you know why you need a night cream and what skin type you have. But then there is one more thing you can filter on: ingredients. You have different categories in night creams. For example, you have different healthy oils, vitamins and healthy acids. Just by thoroughly inspecting the ingredients for a moment, the chances that you are going to find a perfect match are all the greater. If you do go for a night cream, look for the best one! Saves money, time and frustration.

Natural oils

Almost all night creams for men contain natural oils. Argan oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil, grape seed oil and so on. All have their own fine effects, but what they all have in common is that it moisturizes and nourishes your skin. Dehydration of your skin is the biggest reason wrinkles begin to form, so hydration in your night cream is something you definitely want.


Okay, this can get a little confusing. Many ingredients have their own vitamins, but in addition, there are often standard vitamins next to them as ingredients in their own right. Confusing, so we'll give you an example. Vitamin C is often found in night creams to repair sun damage. In addition, vitamin C helps slow the skin aging process. Vitamin E is also often found in a night cream for men. Vitamin E protects your skin from free radicals and reduces wrinkles.

Healthy acids

This ingredient should definitely not be missing from this list. Healthy acids, they definitely exist. Hyaluronic acid is in many night creams and for a reason. Hyaluronic acid can hold about 1000x its own weight in moisture. Therefore, this powerhouse ensures that your skin is maximally hydrated and cared for.

Ascorbic acid is the other name of vitamin C. This form of vitamin C is the most researched and is known for its fine action. In fact, ascorbic acid helps form connective tissue, absorb iron and boost your skin's resistance.
