  • Use a good moisturizer first and at night too.
    Oil of Olay is a good basic moisturizer and you don't need more than basic.

  • I have severe dry skin as well. First you need a great moisturizer like Clinique or Aveeno. Then for foundation..I've tried Clinique..Estee Lauder and Maybelline. I enjoy the Estee Lauder it stays on well without looking cakey. I can't remember which one I liked from them. And Clinique has some nice products. Look around for sales in dept. stores for them.

  • Also..don't forget to exfoliate! It gets all the dead skin cells all smooth. Aveeno is good for that or Alba (both at local drugstores.)

  • IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN YOU NEED TO STAY AWAY FROM LOOSE POWDER /MINERAL MAKE UP IT WILL ONLY MAKE YOU LOOK DRYER. i LOVE MAC AND WELL WORTH THE PRICE

  • I exfoliate then use Aloette night cream. In the morning, clean, use serums then Aloette day moisturizer. I wake up looking like I have makeup on and the cleanser is also a toner.

  • Exfoliliate, use a great moisterizer morning and night. Remember SPF in the morning. Drink lots of water and eat omega 3 rich foods to hydrate from the inside out.
