At nighttime, skincare routines get a switch up as day moisturisers are swapped out for more nourishing formulations.
During sleep, those more intense products get to work, restoring moisture in the skin.
But in the summer season – when nights are hotter, sweatier – rich skincare can feel heavy and unwelcome as sebum struggles to break through.
So how to do you get the hydration you need in a comfortable way?
There are a mix of smart products now on the market that pack hydrating ingredients in the most feather-light of textures.
If rich skincare leaves your face oil-slicked come morning, but dryness is still a concern, these are the products to try.
Shiseido WASO Yuzu-C Beauty Sleeping Mask
Recently reformulated and repackaged, this sleeping mask is like a hug for tired skin.
It’s lightly cooling too, so feels refreshing to apply after a day in the sun.
Oils rarely manage to feel light on skin, but PSA have achieved just that.
Blended with vitamin C, acai oil and sea buckthorn oil, the oil works to hydrate skin while boosting glow and working as an antioxidant.
Leaves & Flowers Skin Sleep Cream
Though paste-like in texture, this does a good job of locking moisture in.
Rinse off in the morning and you’ll be left with skin that feels cocooned but not suffocated.
Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Masque
Being a multi-use product, you can use this like a traditional mask that you wash off, or leave on overnight as a moisturising treatment.
It’s been designed with sensitive skin in mind, with the aim of soothing irritation.
Clinique Moisture Surge 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator
Clinique’s Moisture Surge is nothing new, but gets forgotten in the abundance of new launches.
Being a gel that truly hydrates, layer on before bed, almost like a mask, and let it work its magic while you sleep.
Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Gel Cream
Gel cream textures are the perfect hybrid formula for when you need hydration but without anything feeling rich.
It’s got five types of hyaluronic acid of varying molecular weights (meaning it sinks into skin at different levels) and leaves skin feeling cool, making it perfect for muggy nights.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer
This moisturiser sells out over and over, which is telling.
With its uplifting light scent and watery gel texture, it glides on skin with minimum fuss.
It’s currently out of stock again – but you can sign up for an alert when it’s back.
