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. Using a night cream compatible with your skin type can slow down the ageing process of your skin. This type of night cream will deeply nourish and moisturise your skin, maintaining the moisture balance in your skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
At Optiphar you can find a wide range of night creams that have been specifically developed for a dry skin. In our range you can find premium brands, such as Louis Widmer, Clinique, Nuxe and Vichy. Do not forget to get a day cream as well that is compatible with your skin type.
