If your skin is prone to dryness and patchiness, applying makeup might not help matters. In fact, powders, foundations and concealer can make dry skin look even flakier, highlighting the areas of your skin that suffer even more.
The problem is that make up will only look as hydrated as the skin underneath, which means you need a properly moisturised base before you start applying your cosmetics.
Gently scrubbing areas prone to dryness, like around the nose and the crease of the chin, with a washcloth every day, or use a good quality exfoliator.
Then you need a good quality serum and moisturiser to apply at the beginning of the day. Of course, this needs to be repeated in the evening too, with a specially equipped night moisturiser, but we recommend using a night oil too – preferably one that contains vitamin E.
Dual products also help dry skin. Many dry skin sufferers like to use products like tinted moisturisers. One of our bug cosmetic crushes at the moment is a serum foundation, which delivers high impact moisturisation as well as high performance coverage for the complexion.
