I have dry skin: what foundation should I use?

1. Dry skin: a tricky skin type when it comes to make-up

Highly sensitive on account of its lack of water and lipids, dry skin feels uncomfortable and is often uneven with respect to texture, making it difficult when it comes to make-up. Tricky, but not impossible! Firstly, it's essential to hydrate your skin deep down before moving on to your base. Try soothing your skin with the SOS Comfort Mask. In just 10 minutes, this ultra-nourishing face mask leaves skin soft, supple, comfy and ready to be made up.

2. A moisturising foundation

Once your skin is nicely hydrated, which foundation is best for dry skin? It’s crucial you reach for a moisturising foundation, and the good news is that all Clarins foundations are hydrating! A good choice is the Skin Illusion serum foundation. It is enriched with organic kalanchoe extract for optimum hydration, leaving your face beautified and perfectly moisturised.
