PRO TIP: Do not apply too much primer. In general, use one dot for small areas like your chin and nose, and two dots for larger areas like your cheeks or forehead.
Moisture, Moisturize and moisturize!!!
The best cream for dry skin during summers is a light-weight moisturizer that eliminates moisture back into the skin, without weighing it down. For colder weather, use heavy skin creams with the goodness of Aloe, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin E or C to retain the moisture.
