Without makeup i now feel that moisturizer is unnecessary. However I have a lot of scarring still, and fee, I NEED to wear makeup when outside the house.
The problem is skin flakes when I put concealer on, so I've always put moisturizer on to avoid the flaking. Is there anything else that can be done instead of moisturizer? I don't like the greasy feeling of it.
Thanks for any opinions and recommendations!

Do you use a primer? A silicone-based primer can help smooth out the flakes so the makeup goes on smoothly without moisturizer.

You could also try a gel moisturizer instead of a lotion. :)

I had no idea primers existed until recently lol (Ive always been into mineral makeup and such for bad skin)

I recently tried Neutrogena's primer, but honestly my skin still got oily after using it. It claimed to keep you shine free for 8 hours.

Now I have Phillips, which is a liquid laxative, but many people use it for matte finish that lasts.

It's pretty good, you should try it.
