Best Night Creams in India
By Contributor: Monica
The first thing that I do in the morning after getting up is see my face in the mirror (self-obsessed me!). I immediately get lightened up on seeing smooth glowing face and get disheartened on the days when I see parched dull dry or super oily face. I know lots of girls out there have this habit just like me. In order to feel lightened the whole day, it is very essential to use a good night cream according to the skin type – oily skin or dry skin. A rich night cream fights the free radicals while we sleep and helps reverse the damage which whole day’s stress, pollution, skin ageing, sun exposure, etc. do to our skin. Even if you don’t see the effects immediately, it is very important to use a night cream as it would definitely help in keeping the skin healthy in the long run.
In this post I am compiling the best night creams available in Indian market for oily to combination skin girls in no specific order.
