Having dry skin or dry patches can be extremely uncomfortable. Your skin can start feeling scratchy and itchy when you least expect it and it's because of the lack of moisture and hydration. The cold weather is especially problematic and even the best of creams and serums can sometimes fall short.

Most importantly, the foundation should be one that is suited for your skin type. Fortunately, there are a plethora of foundations for dry skin for you to choose from. These are water-based products and are loaded with hydrating benefits.
