Has anyone discovered which Cosmetics works best for women who suffer with Moderate Rosacea (with papules) and Seborrheic Dermatitis?  I'm so tired of buying Cosmetics I can't use because they make my skin condition worse.  I've tried Almay, Physician's Formula, Bare Minerals, Clinique, Prescriptives, etc... 

BEFORE I had Rosacea and Seborrheic Dermatitis I used a thick mousse foundation by Lancome (which I loved), but Lancome stopped making it.  I cannot use thin, runny, cosmetics, because they simply don't cover the redness.  It's also extremely hard to find green tinted makeup that covers redness.  Having the addition of Seborrheic Dermatitis makes this process extra-special.  I look like I'm peeling from a sunburn every day of the year.  Powders make my face look even more flakey, although so does wearing foundation.  It's an insane process.

If you have Seborrheic Dermatitis, does your skin practically fall-off your face in the shower?  My face flakes throughout the day too (like dandruff).  I use Vanicream's Free and Clear Liquid Cleanser, and when I'm finished using it in the shower I can lightly rub layers off my face!  It seems never-ending!  No matter what I do, I cannot get rid of ALL the flakes so I can wear makeup to cover my redness without looking like I have dead skin everywhere.  I've used prescriptions from the Dermatologist, AND even used Selsun Blue, but everything simply irritates my face.

I can't use most moisturizers either - they just make my face more red.  The closest I've come to finding something I can use is Vanicream Lite Lotion.  My face often feels dry, tight, and itchy.  It's always red and flakey too.  I'm a mess.

Your suggestions are welcome!
I've read numerous postings on this website, but I'm feeling overwhelmed.

Thank you.

I cannot comment on the Dermatitis or Rosacea, however I can help with this bit:

Consider using a cream base from one of the major theatrical/ stage/ TV/ movie brands. Kryolan is one that is very reasonably priced and they have every nuanced shade you can imagine to cover the realm of professional makeup needs including covering birthmarks, acne and scars (and also replicating them!) for the stage and screen.

Try Googling the brand I mentioned. There are many online sellers as well as local ones. I personally use them for my own skin and for wedding, prom and other "big events" on clients.

Good luck.

Thank you Beeks - I'll check that out!  Hopefully it won't make me break-out more, but I'll only know if I try.  Thanks again!  KHG

Dear KHG,

You might also try to use Nicole Paxson makeup.

KHG, I too have used the products you mention and reacted badly to them. I  have had good luck with  some Bobbie Brown make-up, except for her  gel eyeliner, cream shadow and some base with sunscreen.   But my face accepts  some of her foundation. They let you return products if you are sensitive to them over a couple of weeks.  I do not have dermatitis, but  have  rocacea and  extremely sensitive skin. 

I even react to newpaper ink and have had to ban newspapers from my house.  I also react to hats  made of natural plant products (grasses) and have to wear cotton hats in the summer.   With sensitivities, it is a question of trial and error, information gathering and sleuthing. By the way, I use 4-ethoxybenzaldehyde and it really helps.

I feel for you, and have your exact same skin,(I know it's hard to believe), maybe worse. What has worked for me best is HA and distilled water, followed by an oil your skin likes, like emu-later oil, or rose hip oil. This works for me.

Do you think it may be worth trying our new zinc PCA?
