Stronger Makeup Staples such as foundation and concealer are very difficult at dry skin since the products, if they have no additional slip, can form cakes -y, uneven Stains on the whole face – pretty much the last thing to worry about before you go out the door. Primers are especially important as they can form an additional moisturizing layer between your skin care and your make-up. For this year's Healthy Beauty Awards we have a number of different primers, concealers and makeup products overpour primers to find the very best for dry skin types ̵
Some of the same basic skin care measures apply to dry skin types: It would be better to use make-up products that contain humectants such as glycerine and hyaluronic acid or plasticizers such as butter, oils and ceramides. Derms also recommend avoiding formulations that contain too much alcohol and can dry out for the skin. Interestingly enough, there has not always been any overlap between what the dermatologists had recommended and what our testers loved (everyone is different – who knew that ?!), but each of these products has an extra element of hydration or lubricity. Below you will find our most popular make-up products for dry skin types.
