It seems like there are a lot of overnight treatment products hitting the market these days. Are there in fact certain ingredients that your skin benefits from nocturnally more than during the day?

During rest, your skin has a chance to repair itself perhaps better than during the day, so product manufacturers tend to put their most concentrated skincare ingredients into overnight skincare preparations. However, there are also ingredients, for instance retinol, that break down in daylight, so it is imperative that these ingredients in particular go into a nighttime preparation. But remember, whatever little bit of help modern skincare can give you for skin recovery overnight can be instantly nullified by only a few minutes of sunshine. While UVB (tanning) rays are present mostly in the summer, the real enemy of good skin, UVA rays—which can cause deep dermal collagen damage that translates into wrinkles, loss of elasticity, enlarged pores, and discoloration—are with us all year. You need to wear a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB-based sunscreen every day because even a small amount of unprotected exposure to sunlight can undo all the work that you did overnight. If the chalky white, greasy, shiny, and heavy formulas on the market today deter you from wearing a broad-spectrum product every day, try my SPF 30 Defense Day Cream. It goes on both matte and dewy and is tinted so it actually looks like well-blended makeup on your skin.
