Can you recommend me a good foundation for dry acne prone skin?

7 posts in this topic

right now i'm using the everyday minerals powder foundation, it works well but it emphasizes the dry spots on my skin which is gross. so, I'm looking to get a liquid foundation that won't make me too shiny throughout the day and something that is Noncomedogenic

How much coverage are you looking for? I'm experiencing the same problem and I just bought Covergirl Trublend...

Pros:

1. Cheap

2. Matches my skin pretty well (had to try it on first)

3. Feels like I'm wearing nothing

4. Doesn't seem to be clogging my pores

Cons:

1. Still shows flaky skin, though not as bad

2. Took me a while to choose the right shade

3. You still need to use concealer as the coverage is sheer/medium

Not sure about oil control as I have been pretty dry using the BP.

Hope this helps a little.

Oh, some recs that I've seen on the board also include:

Maybelline Pure

L'Oreal Trumatch

Revlon Colorstay (Regular & Active light) ;)


Morning:

Purpose or J&J Head-to-Toe Wash

DK BP 2.5%

Olay Complete SPF 15 Sensitive Skin

Night:

J&J Head-to-Toe Wash

DK BP 2.5%

Cetaphil Lotion

you should try korres yogurt cream (http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P116805)... it's a moisturizer for oily, dehyrated skin. after a couple of days, any make-up will look a lot less flaky! also, cargo foundation works well for dehydrated skin... but if you just treat the dry skin with a good moisturizer that won't make you break out, you should be able to use most foundations without issue. good luck!

I read some good stuff about Chanel foundation. have any of u liked Chanel?


Had acne since 12 yrs old- first it was minor, moderate, and then it developed into severe cystic acne. I got rid of it two years ago with two rounds of Accutane...after I have tried EVERYTHING. Still have sensitive skin, some scarring and spots that I manage with different skincare routine. Here to share my experience with others. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
