Whenever it comes to picking cosmetics, the first thing that you should consider is your skin type. Since there are different skin types right from normal and dry to oily and sensitive; makeup also comes in variance so as to suit individual skin type and requirements. And the same rule applies for compact powders as well. Just as there are pressed powders specially designed for those with oily skin; compact powders for dry skin are also available.
If your skin time and again dries out, then always pick oil-based makeup items including compressed powder. The hydrating agents present in the pressed powder moisturize your skin, thereby keeping dryness and breakouts at bay.
The compact powders for dry skin traps the moisturizing content of the skin, enabling a smooth finish. Unlike other pressed powders, these specially designed compact powders reduce the flaking of skin and usually work best when applied along-with moisturizing primers, foundation and concealers. However, those living in humid region should not touch up more often as these oil-based products may leave the face greasy because of humidity.
Here are some of the best compact powders for dry skin available in India. Do have a read!
