When it comes to selecting the best foundation for dry skin, it’s important to look for a product that provides decent coverage as well as a hit of hydration.
If, like me, your complexion falls under the sahara-like spectrum, I’m sure you’ll understand the struggle that comes with finding the best foundation for dry skin. I get it, trying to find a base that won’t cake up or cling to flakey patches can feel like mission impossible.
As dry skin can get quite flaky and textured, you want to select a formula that will not only give a much-needed boost to moisture levels, but also one that won’t settle into lines, as this can make skin look drier, older and duller.
Foundation for Dry Skin
This is the type of skin that easily gets influenced from weather conditions and has a tendency to age faster than any other skin type, since wrinkles appear on dry skin pretty soon. So your skin will need lots of nutrition and moisturizing to keep up with these unwanted factors. That is why you should keep on buying water or oil based foundations. Go for either liquid foundation or tinted moisturizers, but avoid powders in any case.
Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Hydrating Foundation
This foundation is one of the most moisturising formulas we’ve ever tried. A serum foundation that combines the fluidity of pure plant oils with the perfect amount of pigments that let skin breathe. The brand’s HD Light Optimizing Complex with pink pearls and soft-focus powders provides immediate radiance. It gives a nice smooth dewy look and super easy to apply!

Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation
Don’t let the fact that this foundation is oil-free put you off – because it’s incredibly moisturising. It contains 60% charged water and seaweed extracts, which work hard to transfer water to the skin. What’s more, if your flaky skin leads to irritation, this pot of wonder contains aloe, chamomile and arnica to sooth and calm the skin.
This foundation is wonderful. It is very light and goes on smoothly. Provides just enough coverage. It doesn’t settle in your pores and fine lines the way most foundations do. It is a little expensive but worth it!
