We’re just a few days into 2019, and one inevitable truth is clear as day: Winter is here, and it’s coming for our well-moisturized skin. Mere months or weeks after perfecting a routine that doesn’t strip our skin of its natural oils but also leaves it shine-free, the weather is getting colder, dryer and windier. Unfortunately, this catapults a lot of us back to square one, where we must readjust again. And for those who swear by coverage every day, that means it’s time to get familiar with the best foundations for dry skin.
The guidelines aren’t complicated. Your skin needs what the winter air has depleted. An ideal place to start is your skin-specific products. What moisturizers, serums and cleansers are you using to keep your glow on point? Look at the ingredients on those labels and aim for the same kind in your foundation. More often than not, they include hyaluronic acid, a molecule that can hold more than 1,000 times its weight in water, or a nourishing oil like argan. And remember that what works for one skin type won’t necessarily work for yours.
But overall, liquid formulas are historically more hydrating than their powder counterparts. Ahead are 13 of the best, top-rated foundations, all made with ingredients that not only disguise blemishes, but ward off flaking, redness and all the other winter woes you may be grappling with.
