Best Foundation For Raised Scars?

Recommended Posts

Hi im in desperate need of help. Ive got scarring on my chin from cystic acne. They are slightly raised. Not sure if its textural damage on the skin. What foundation can i use to cover them? Ive tried dermablend and it just looked awful and cakey. Some liquid foundations make me skin look oily making the txture more noticeable. Any help or advice would be great x

only thing that ever helped cover the raised scarring on my chin was the dermablend smooth indulgence concealer. i used it as my foundation but they stopped making it a few months ago which sucks big time. i now use estee lauder double wear maximum coverage and it works ok but not like the dermablend. blah! i have found that with raised scarring at least for me if i choose a color that is a little darker than my skin tone that it somehow makes them blend in better with the rest of my skin you just have to be careful not to put too much makeup on that area or it will look even more raised than it is.

i did really like tarte amazonian clay foundation it covered pretty darn good but i had a lot of trouble getting it off my face for some reason. the next thing i want to try is cover fx and see how that works because it has good reviews. let me know if you ever find anything good.

If it's mild to moderate scarring then I would reccomend you use a concealer. That way you can individually cover the scars and then on top of the concealer use a thin layer of foundation over your entire face. There's no need to use a thick consistancy cream over your enire face if you only need to cover up specific parts. On another note, if your scars are redish you might need a green tinted concealer. They are called color correctors. The green cancels out the red and makes the red appear neutral so that it will blend in with your skin tone better.
