It's not TOO hard to upkeep your skin during the day! I used to like to keep a light sheer pressed powder to touch up for any shine and even out my skin tone if needed, but if you have dry skin I'd suggest that you invest in a good hydrating face cream with spf that you can wear in the morning to really protect your skin and keep it moisturized.
I LOVE Origins for a good everyday moisturizer, if you have dry skin try the Origins VitaZing which has an SPF 15 and is super hydrating:
If you want a little extra color or coverage, use a BB Cream with hydrating properties too:
Dr. Jart Water Fuse BB Cream
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream
