Just use one for both day and night unless you find one with sunscreen, then just use that during the day and another one at night. I use the same moisturizer for day and night and have a separate sunscreen for day. I use different serums for day and night for anti aging and other skincare needs. What exaclty are you looking for in terms of skincare goals?

I use Clinique for all of mine. I use an moisturizer with SPF during the day, it’s nice and light and I can easily put a primer over it and then makeup. I use an eye cream as the skin around your eyes is thinner and needs a different type of moisturizing. I use a thicker night cream, it re-hydrates my skin, but is too heavy for day use, especially when it’s so dry where I live.

elena91 :  I rotate between a tinted moisturizer and foundation. Foundation is normally for work days stacked with meetings and events. Tinted moisturizer for the other days. I like it and I’m happy with the coverage but it’s not super moisturizing. 

Best advice I got in my 20s was to start taking care of your skin now. It’s much easier to prevent the damage than it is to try to fix the damage.

elena91 :  In the summers, a lot of times I’ll mix a bit of sunscreen, moisturizer, and a pump or two of foundation. That way I can sort of create my own SPF tinted moisturizer without having to test out entirely new products that I might react to. You might be able to utilize what you already own without risking a new product that will cause acne.

elena91 :  Paula’s Choice is a very good brand. No frangrances or irritating ingredients and reasonably priced. There is also a lot of good information about skincare on the site. I suggest you read her articles about your main skin concerns and choose products based on that. If you’re interested in anti aging, you need to find ingredients for that, not just a day vs night cream thing. A night cream could have zero anti aging ingredients in it, but is extra emollient so it makes your skin feel nice and soft. But that’s not really doing anything to prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
