QWhat’s the best foundation for dehydrated skin? Kathy, Watford
AAs important as it is to find a foundation that’s going to hydrate your skin, you can’t rely on your base alone. Make sure you prep your skin before applying your foundation with products that are going to drench it in moisture.
Start with a hyaluronic acid-based serum. Hyaluronic acid is the moisture maker for your skin because it cleverly clings on to moisture, stopping it from leaving and keeping it where it’s needed. We love Your Good Skin Instant Nourishing Booster Hydrating, £8, Boots. Next apply an equally hydrating day cream, this will lock in your serum but also add to the hydration levels. CeraVe Facial Moisturising Lotion
SPF25, £13, lookfantastic.com, is a great choice.
Once that has sunk in, apply a foundation that contains more of the same hydrating ingredients. Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25Hr Foundation, £9.99, Superdrug, contains a hyaluronic acid serum so will not only create a flawless base but be the hydrating cherry on top of hard-working hydrating skincare.
