These Are the Best Primers for Dry Skin to Keep Your Glow on 100
Fact: The secret to your glow-up lies in a good primer. If you’re not all that sold on primers just yet, wait until you see how perfectly airbrushed and comfortable your foundation will look and feel when you're wearing one. The most gorgeous glam starts with a good canvas, and primers are part of the secret sauce to flawless foundation. If you have dry and flaky skin, applying a moisturising primer before you work in your foundation will not only give you a lit-from-within glow but also hydrate your skin for hours on end.
We can't solely rely on our makeup to blur imperfections and brighten our skin—a good base is necessary. And the most hydrating primers are packed with nourishing ingredients. (It's true: They can double as makeup-boosters and skincare staples.) With dryer months quickly approaching, these oil- and cream-based primers need to be on your top shelf.
