What Makeup is Best for Dry Skin?

Do you have dry skin that peels, flakes, or just generally has a hard time staying moisturized?  Did you know that the makeup you choose at the beauty store can play a major role in treating it or making it worse?  Here are some makeup options that are the best for people with dry skin.

One thing you really need to pay attention to is the foundation you choose.  Always look for a foundation that contains great moisturizers, such as those offered by Helena Rubenstein or MAC cosmetics.  Finding a foundation that is light and designed not to clog your pores is very important.

Equally important is selecting makeup that is free of alcohol.  Alcohol can dry out even the most oily skin, and this can create cracking, redness and peeling that can make things much worse.  While alcohol will make the skin produce oil, it does so in a way that makes the skin look unhealthy and greasy, and should always be avoided.

Looking for makeup options that have as few chemicals as possible is the best choice.  Organic makeup provides many benefits, and can keep your skin from being further damaged.


There are certainly a number of non-organic makeup options designed for dry skin, some of which work incredibly well, but any time you can avoid chemicals, it is better for your skin in the long run.
