Dry skin can be a real pain during the winter months. But don’t let your dry skin keep you from looking your best! There are some essential makeup products that you can use to help battle dryness and keep your skin looking healthy and hydrated. Here are six of them.
Hydrate with a Primer
You may have heard this one before, but if you want your makeup to last all day long, you need to start with a good primer. A hydrating primer is a must-have for dry skin. It will help seal in your moisturizer and keep your makeup looking fresh all day long. Look for a primer containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin, both known for their hydrating properties.
Layers of Lightness
Don’t think that your concern about dry skin means that you have to avoid using dark colors. Just make sure that you’re using a moisturizing foundation with some slip to it, and only use the colors in your palette that are suitable for your skin tone, because they’ll blend better over something light and hydrating.
Douse Your Eyes in Waterproof Mascara
If you have especially dry eyes or live somewhere with harsh winters, using an eye makeup remover and plenty of water to wash off your makeup each night might be a good idea. A vitamin-E enriched mascara will help increase the moisture level of your lashes. So, when you’re wearing it, all the flakes and dryness may not be as noticeable.
It’s the Blushing Season
A cream blush is perfect for dry skin because it will add a hint of color without looking too powdery or matte. Just apply it onto the apples of your cheeks and blend it out with your fingers.
Simple Skin for the Win
During the winter, it’s best to keep your skincare routine as simple as possible. Overdoing it with too many products can actually end up irritating your skin and making it even drier. Stick to a gentle cleanser, an antioxidant serum, and a moisturizer that’s suited to your specific skin type.
