    While your mind switches off at night, your skin’s repair mechanism wakes up. For us, this skin-mind-sleep cycle is the key to caring for very dry skin. So why is night cream important? Well, skin can be left feeling vulnerable after being exposed to environmental and physical damage during the day.
