The key to finding the right foundation for dry skin starts with choosing the right formula. Powders and stick foundations tend to be dry and difficult to blend so stick to liquid and cream foundations. Check foundation ingredients to make sure they contain hydrating agents like glycerin, alpha-hydroxy acids, lanolin, urea, hyaluronic acid. These are all water binding ingredients that traps the skins natural moisture. The best foundation is one that has a dewy or satin finish as it will give you the glow that is missing in dry skin naturally.
