With the myriad of oils and super serums on the market it can seem a bit old-fashioned to slather your face with night cream before bed – almost as if you should be wearing rollers in your hair and marabou mules on your feet while you do it.

But sometimes – especially in such cold, drying weather – only a thick, rich cream will do. And plenty of it for that matter – although you don't want a formula that sits on your skin leaving it feeling wet, or even worse, going to waste on your pillowcase. Apply with upward strokes and don't forget your neck and décolletage.
