It happens like clockwork. My makeup is pristine and powdered when I leave my house and head to the office every morning. Once the afternoon rolls around though — and I’ve been in and out braving the blistering New York City cold — my nose begins to peel away dry flake by flake (TMI, I know). But seriously, dry flaking skin due to the cold weather and indoor heating is a total nightmare — especially if you have overall dry or combination skin. Ahead, find the best hydrating foundations to use during winter weather and beyond — no matter what kind of dry skin you suffer from.
