It depends: Some wrinkle reducing creams such as Retin-A are better if used at night since they make your skin sensative to the sun. Other creams that contain alphahydroxy acids such as glycolic acid can be used in the morning or at night or even twice a day.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Depends: Retin-a, which is the gold standard, is typically used at night-time, after you wash & thoroughly dry your face. Many other products are used in the morning.
