If your skin is naturally dry, it can be difficult to find a foundation that hydrates, gives even coverage and lasts all day without flaking. Older complexions are those that suffer most, but luckily, new technology means that foundations for dry skin are better than ever. Many now target other skin concerns too, such as sun damage, wrinkles and tightness while concealing, soothing and providing a flawless, natural-looking finish.
When looking at foundations for dry skin, the trick is to look out for ingredients that will soothe and nourish your complexion, while providing natural coverage. This will ensure that your foundation not only stays on all day, but also works at targeting and healing your skin concerns. It's a double win!
