If you’re suffering from red, itchy, inflamed skin, there’s a chance that you have eczema.
This skin condition can affect small areas of your skin on the face and body and result in rough, red and inflamed patches that can sometimes be itchy.
The term “eczema” refers to multiple types of skin conditions, including atopic dermatitis - which is genetic, and contact dermatitis - which occurs when the skin is allergic to a specific ingredient or product. The symptoms of eczema on the face are the same as that elsewhere on the body, and flare ups are common on both areas.
Keeping your skin hydrated is one of the most important steps you can take in minimizing eczema flare-ups. A gentle, foaming, nourishing, moisturizing routine won't strip the skin of it's natural, protective oils. Great for dry, sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis. Use as a gentle shampoo for dandruff, cradle cap or seborrheic dermatitis ( tear-free). Won't sting or burn.
When you have eczema, you may already know that some cosmetics irritate your skin, but that doesn't mean you have to give up on makeup! While makeup can help to minimize the redness, it’s important to hydrate and treat the skin before applying it over your face. Before applying any makeup to your face or around your eyes, prep the area first. To provide a barrier of hydration, primers are good options as well.
Avoid drying foundations. Cream-based products are best for their buildable coverage and softening formula, which lays smooth while covering. Cream blush can be gentler on the skin, as you will want to stay away from powders.
When it comes to application, minimizing friction is key. Firm brushstrokes and too much blending can increase eczema symptoms, including flaking. Pat on your skin care and makeup with gentle brushes or sponges with as little rubbing as possible. This will also help prevent caking or flaking.
Of course, it’s ok to leave your skin alone and forgo makeup altogether, especially when having flare ups. If you are flaring up, you should stop all makeup and focus on moisturizing. The most important step is trying to calm the inflammation and repair the skin barrier.
Taking a warm bath can rehydrate. (Add ground oatmeal to your tub water for extra soothing.) Lightly blot your skin and use a moisturizer all over.
I just wanted to let you know I wish I started using this foundation earlier. I usually stay away from foundation as my face is red and sore, but this is literally perfection!! Stays in place and doesn’t feel heavy and calms my eczema and gets rid of the redness. Thanks again! You guys are the best!
When I first had my consult with a LeiLani, I was very skeptical. I didn’t want another sales job. I had spent so much money in the past, struggling with my eczema. Leilani didn’t even bring up her make up line. She talked about the wellness of my skin and the health of my skin I was the one that actually brought up the make up. LeiLani is such a beautiful soul. My whole make up drawer is filled with this brand, and the Skin Care is out for everyday use in my bathroom
I have been looking for a foundation to cover my scars for the past 30 yrs. i have finally found the foundation i have been searching for . This make-up has literally changed my life. I have a condition, I pick at my skin, as well as eczema, which leaves sores and scars. This foundation covers all of it. It is light, not cake like, and the coverage lasts for 12 hours. I first bought the sample size, just to make sure i liked it, also to make sure i had the correct colour match. the sample size it pretty big. trust me when i tell you, i would be extremely surprised if you purchased this make-up and did not love it as I do. i also tried the moisturizer it was wonderful. it sells amazing!!
