Skincare routine: Best times for sunscreen, moisturiser and night cream

Skincare routines may seem laborious and time-consuming, though there is a multitude of products that can ensure that your skin looks and feels fantastic with minimal effort. The key to managing skincare methods is to understand which products offer which benefits and when in the day they should be applied.


In order for your products to work successfully, they should be applied to clean and fresh skin. This means that it is important for you to cleanse your skin each morning and evening as the starting point of your skincare regime. Cleansers are available in wipes, gels, and foams and can be purchased to specifically match your skin type. If you have oily, dry or problematic skin, be sure to acknowledge this in your cleanser options so as not to exasperate any pre-existing issues.


To ensure that your sun protection works efficiently, it is important to apply at least 20 minutes for heading outside. Apply evenly over your cleansed face and any other exposed parts of your body.

To maximize the effectiveness of sunscreen, it should be applied generously. In order to cover the average adult body and to achieve the stated SPF, each person should aim to use at least 6 to 8 teaspoons of lotion in each application. If too little is used, there will be less protection.

When deciding upon the most suitable SPF, be sure to evaluate your skin type and tone as well as the environment that you will be in. The lighter the skin and the higher the skin exposure, the higher the SPF needed.

The two kinds of skin types and how to identify yours


Even if your sun protection has moisturizing agents, it is important not to miss the step of focused moisturizing. Apply your face oil or moisturizer thinly, to begin with, so that it can readily penetrate deeper layers and build up from there. Even if you use a face oil, it is important to use a separate moisturizer too as this will ensure that the benefits of the oil and sunscreen are locked in and absorbed.

Many moisturizers contain an SPF and this should be considered as an additional ‘bonus’ protection, rather than solely relied upon. It is always advisable to be overprotected than under.

Night Cream

The evening provides an excellent opportunity to maximize the benefits of your skincare regime. Throughout the night, the body works hard to repair damaged cells and this, coupled with a quality night cream can ensure that your skin health is given a vital boost. Night hours are a fantastic time to use products that contain retinoids as these are less effective during the day because they are sun-sensitive.
