We’ve got it Covered! – camouflage makeup for eczema, acne, psoriasis & rosacea!

Author:

While treating and preventing skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis and rosacea needs to be the first and most important step to addressing the problem, camouflaging them is often the second.

 However due to the nature of these skin conditions, skin is often intolerant to normal cosmetics.

In addition normal foundations often do not provide enough camouflage makeup or longevity for covering lesions, patches and scars caused by problem skin.

Here is a guide to some effective skin camouflage products that should also be kinder to your skin.

 

I’m Fabulous Powder Organic Camouflage Foundations

I’m Fabulous foundations are vegan mineral powder foundations with an SPF15. Suitable for very sensitive skins, although coverage is better than most mineral foundations, as with most mineral powders, it may not be as much as is needed for moderate to severe skin flaws.

These foundations are oil-free and water-resistant and can be applied either as a buildable foundation or a pigmented powder.

These foundations contain no Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petro-Chemicals, Phthalates, Preservatives, Oils, Silicones, Waxes, Talcs, Alcohols, Parabens or Bismuth Oxychloride ( found in most mineral make up and can cause itching!)
