The Best Serum Foundations to Shop This Fall for a Dewy, Hydrated LookAugust 04, 2023
Dry skin can crop up at any time of year, but it’s especially notorious for making an appearance when the weather gets colder. When seasonal dryness sets in, we like to trade in our full-coverage matte formulas for options that are more hydrating and dewy — and serum foundations fit the bill.
Serum foundation formulas are often packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients that hydrate and plump, like hyaluronic acid or glycerin which makes them perfect for warding off dryness. Ahead, we’re sharing our favorite serum foundations to get your fall beauty routine started.
