For night use, people with dry skin are likely to benefit the most from applying a fatty product during the night, to give the skin the time to absorb the greasy product and soothe. Ointments are a very greasy and a very effective option for dry skin. Their absorption time is longer than that of lighter creams or lotions. However, by choosing to apply them over night often has the feeling of greasy skin gone in the morning, since the product has successfully been absorbed during night. Nevertheless, sleep quality can be severely reduced because of itching during your sleep. This means that night time is a good time to also use anti-itching products.
