7 Foundations That Won’t Make Your Dry Skin, Well, More Dry

When you have dry skin, you're more likely to be fully committed to your skincare routine at all times. From heavy moisturisers to hyaluronic acid serums and even desk humidifiers, 'tis the season to stock up on anything and everything that might provide you with a much-needed H2O boost. So why give your thirsty skin all that TLC only to then layer on a foundation that will leave you drier than you were in the first place?
Do your dehydrated skin a favour and opt for formulas that support all the time and effort you're putting into staying well-moisturised, instead of working against it. "If you have dry skin, look for [makeup] products that contain hydrating ingredients to help moisturise the skin as well as provide coverage," says dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD.
The right foundation with the right ingredients won't just make dry skin look good; it'll make it feel good, too. Ahead, our favourite formulas that do exactly that, so you'll stay perfectly hydrated through autumn and beyond.
