Glow: Foundation

Choose the Right Foundation

Women with dry skin should use liquid or cream foundations that contain oil. If you don't need a lot of coverage from your foundation you may like using a tinted moisturizer. However, it's important to understand that tinted moisturizer should not replace a regular moisturizer. The cosmetic term "tinted moisturizer" is really just code for "sheer foundation.” BB creams have also become popular lately and often contain good hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin B.
