In brief: Skin Cream Use
Either morning or night is good for applying skin cream, but definitely after showering or washing is best time.

In brief: Yes
Creams are more effective when applied at night because you have 8 hours for it to sit and penetrate.
The skin becomes much drier during the winter and need to apply cream all over. Get even better penetration by wearing gloves and socks over heavy creams on the hands and feet.
