How to create a dewy look when you have dry skin


While we often associate dry skin with harsh winter weather, some of us have to live with it year-round. This can be especially annoying when everyone is drooling over the much-coveted dewy look, because those dry-skinned folk out there might think it’s out of their reach.

But fear not, dear friend! Anyone can get that soft, dewy summer look with the help of some skincare products, makeup, and tips to keep your skin healthy. Dry skin can be a drag, but it shouldn’t stop you from creating the beauty looks you want to achieve to feel your best and look super fly.

The first thing you want to do is exfoliate your skin.

This will give your face a smooth, clear base that will absorb products beautifully. You can use either a daily exfoliant or something like a mask that you use several times a week. Here are a few great options.

Dermalogica’s Daily Superfoliant, $58.

This powder cleanser is our favorite daily exfoliator. It’s gentle enough to use every day while still being incredibly powerful. It leaves your skin ultra-smooth and fresh without stripping it of its natural oils and skin barrier.

Yllo Turmeric Scrub, $24.95.

This scrub doubles as a mask, and you get the benefits of this all-natural product that leaves your skin silky-smooth without the aid of harsh chemicals.

Next, you have to keep your skin hydrated in order to ward off the dryness.

Staying hydrated will also create a smooth base for your makeup. There are lots of different moisturizing options, from cream formulas to oils, and once you find the right balance for your skin you’ll be devoted forever. These choices will give you all the moisture you need.

Herbivore Phoenix Cell Regenerating Facial Oil, $88.

This facial oil dramatically rehydrates your skin with naturally rich botanical oils that allow for deeper absorption of vitamins and nutrients.
