If you suffer from dry skin, you’re probably aware of the challenge of finding a complexion products that are both hydrating enough to avoid clingy to your dry patches and emphasizing the cracks and creases can be without compromising staying power or creasing almost instantly. Sometimes, it makes absolutely zero difference of many potent moisturizers you layer underneath your foundation, concealer, and powder— by mid-day all of the cracks and rough spots seem to peek through, leaving your skin feeling tight and dry and your foundation peeling off your skin or settling into all of your dry patches.

Opting for a hydrating foundation is essential, but if you prefer to stick to concealer on most days, the same advice applies here. Concealers with more hydrating formulas tend to offer less coverage and don’t last as long, but fortunately, we’ve found a few products that won’t leave your skin feeling parched and will actually cover your blemished, undereye circles, and hyperpigmentation like dream. Scroll through to check out our favorite moisturizing foundations for dry skin.
