An Editor With Eczema-Prone Skin Shares Her Favorite Makeup ProductsOctober 06, 2021
I’ve been suffering from eczema since I was a child and it’s chronic. This, mixed with the fact that I have combination skin, makes finding makeup products difficult. I like full-coverage makeup that conceals any rough patches with hydrating formulas to keep my skin healthy and nourished. While it’s important to consult your dermatologist about exactly what kinds of formulas you can wear if you have eczema, I’ve rounded up seven of my personal favorites here.
CC creams have become my savior after living with eczema for so long. They work to color correct, keep my skin tone and texture looking even and are extremely hydrating. This formula from Dermablend is my favorite because it’s lightweight and breathable on the skin but gives me the coverage I’m looking for.
I also like to opt for a super moisturizing concealer with good-for-your-skin ingredients when my eczema is acting up. Enter: this new concealer serum formula that’s chock full of tremella mushroom, cica and green tea to keep redness at bay
Glowy and radiant but not overly shiny is always the way I want my makeup to look. This glow-in-balm formula does just the trick and I like to apply it under my makeup to keep my dry patches looking non-existent.
I like my matte lipstick just as much as the next beauty lover, but I also like to opt for a formula that’s a little more hydrating. The Vice Lipsticks hit that nail on the head because they leave behind a powdery matte finish that isn’t cakey or drying on the lips — particularly useful if I get any dryness around or near my mouth.
A hydrating, soft cream eyeshadow is a must-have for dry or flaky skin. This eye polish is formulated with natural pigments and has an oil-base that helps soothe the delicate eye area. It comes in eight shades and is super easy to swipe on for quick application.
