Recently, we’ve been writing about korean foundations for different skin types. This article will discuss which ones are best for dry skin.
Dry skin is no joke, especially in the harsher winter months. If you wear makeup, it’s important to find a great foundation that works for your dry skin type without enhancing any flakes or lines. If you follow a Korean skincare routine, you might be getting plenty of moisture with the other great products you use, but you also want to make sure you find the best Korean foundation for your dry skin. This guide will help, as we’ll list out our favorites and the benefit of each one. By the end of reading this, you should have an idea of which Korean foundation will be best to use on your dry skin!
Liquid or Powder Foundation?
Before we get into it, let’s discuss whether you should use a liquid or powder Korean foundation.
For dry skin types, you typically want to stick to a liquid just because it will be more moisturizing for your skin and will be less likely to settle into any fine, dry lines.
Many Korean brands have great powder foundations, though, too.
You should also consider using a bb cream or a bb cushion, which are both a bit different from regular powder and liquid foundation formulas. Bb creams are very similar to liquid foundations but a bit lighter and with more skin nourishing ingredients, while a bb cushion is in between a bb cream and a liquid foundation, with a cushion that holds the bb formula.
