During the winter, our beauty goals include doing everything to keep our skin moisturized and free of any dry patches and flakiness. That means swapping our mattifying foundations from previous seasons and switching to more hydrating formulas that include glycerin. Glycerin is a moisturizing ingredient that helps keep your skin moisturized, smooth and soft. It’s great for all skin types including oily skin because contrary to popular belief, skipping moisturizer can actually dehydrate your skin and make it produce more oil to compensate that loss of moisture. Ahead, we’re sharing our favorite foundations with the hydrating ingredient.
L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Foundation
Available in 45 shades with varying undertones, this blendable formula offers medium coverage that looks natural and never cakey. It’s lightweight and non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores, making it suitable for oily and acne-prone skin types. It also includes other moisturizing ingredients such as vitamin E for a hydrating feel and radiant finish.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation
If you live for a dewy makeup look, grab this creamy foundation that will give you a beautiful lit-from-within glow while also moisturizing your skin. It offers up to 24 hours of wear and has buildable medium coverage to effectively hide any unwanted scars or blemishes.

And yes, we repeat: you need to apply SPF all year round.
