But the cream that earn a permanent place in our medicine cabinets all have one thing in common: retinoids, the family of vitamin A derivitives including retinol, Retin-A and Renova," said Allure beauty editor Diana Byrne.

Night Rainew® contains retinyl palmitate, vitamin C, and 4 peptides that have been proven to directly stimulate collagen and are less harsh on your skin then vitamin A derivities alone. The difference is that vitamin A indirectly helps with collagen production by simply increasing cell turnover.

Organic Skin Care

What is organic?

Organic can be a classification for anything from food to the military. In the world of skin care one thing is for sure. Organic is better. Why pollute your skin with potentially dangerous harmful chemicals and toxins if you don’t have to.

Luckily April Rain Skin Science® looks out for your skin. We kept the health of your skin in mind when we developed Night Rainew® and that’s why it contains 100 percent organic Echinacea extract, eco-cultivated in the Swiss Alps. Organic Echinacea heals damaged skin, prevents collagen breakdown, and retains renewing moisture for improved firmness, elasticity, and lift. Night Rainew® also contains 100 percent organic Buddleja extract, an ancient Chinese skin-healing remedy. Organic Buddleja neutralizes dangerous free radicals, protects and repairs skin cell DNA that has suffered from environmental stressors, and offers lasting skin renewal and radiance.

Why Does My Skin Need To Stay Hydrated?

Your skin is always thirsty. When your skin is dehydrated it appears dry, brittle and can crack. Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated makes your skin soft and supple. According to, to determine whether your skin is dry simply “lay your finger just above your jaw line, extending it toward the chin. Then gently glide your fingers upward toward the cheekbone. If you notice any sort of creepiness to your skin texture as you work your finger up your face, your skin is parched.”

Additionally, it is important to keep your skin hydrated at night. April Rain®’s ultra-hydrating, age-defying, night repair cream Night Rainew® provides long-lasting moisture with groundbreaking and intelligent, time-released hydration. It’s the only nighttime cream clinically proven to restore, protect and continually supply renewing hydration to skin exactly where and when skin craves it.
