The stratum corneum of the skin consists of horn cells. Between these skin cells we can find fat or skin fat. In normal skin, this skin fat ensures that the right amount of moisture evaporates from the skin. When there is a shortage of fats, more moisture can evaporate. As a result, there is a shortage of moisture in the skin and you have a dry skin that needs additional hydration. Dry skin often feels tight and extremely dry skin may even have scabs or cracks. Signs of skin ageing, such as wrinkles and fine lines, are often more visible in dry skin. Therefore, a moisturising day cream is essential to care for your dry skin. They help to restore the hydrolipidic film of the skin and make the skin feel soft and smooth again.
At Optiphar, you can find a wide range of day creams developed especially for the dry skin. We offer creams from well-known brands such as Clarins, Clinique, Biotherm, Filorga, La Roche Posay, Avène, Bioderma and Vichy.
