Have you tried even the most bestest foundations in history but still end up with a flakey or patchy skin somewhere. Well that could be down to not wearing the correct primer for your skin type. If you have dry skin you need to look out for hydrating or moisturizing formulas. And that’s why I’m here to show you some examples of the best face primer for dry skin that surely will tame that thirsty skin of yours!
Primers formulated with aloe vera, Shea butter, or hyaluronic acid are usually ideal ingredients for dry skins. Either water based or oil based work well with dry skin, unlike oily skin which don’t get along with oil based formulas. Dry skins are thirsty so do end up absorbing makeup, leaving dry patches of makeup.
Okay let’s begin!

- Bare minerals good hydrations

Milk hydro grip primer
First up on the list is the hydro grip primer by milk. The award winner of the best of beauty primer shows that it has more to offer than just it’s packaging.
This primer has a clean formula thanks to it being free from parabens, silicone and oil.
The inclusion of aloe water, hyaluronic acid, vitamin b3 and b5 as well as sweet cherry all make it especially beneficial for dry skin.
These ingredients provide additional moisturisation, which dry skin peeps definitely are in need of as well as hydration which comes from the cannabis seed extract.
And don’t forget the antioxidant benefits for a cleaner and healthier looking skin.
You’re probably wondering if it has any primer features, well of course it does. That’s where the blue agave extract comes into play.
It forms an invisible layer which helps create an even canvas that locks in your beautiful work for up to 12 hours.

Cover FX water cloud primer
Onto the next one, the cover FX water cloud primer, and as you can tell by the name it sounds pretty moisturizing! This primer replaced the anti-aging product cover FX once sold.
Anyways, water cloud aims to ‘instantly refresh the complexion and defends skin against pollution and blue light’. That sounds like great to wear daily and good protection.
