Foundation for Acne Medicated Skin

I'm currently on a acne topical regimen from my dermatologist (Aczone and Epiduo forte) and its making it sooo sensitive, and flaky/dry. Whats best foundation to wear when I do need to put on makeup that wont irritate it and help hydrate!! Must be oil free though and non clogging!

Re: Foundation for Acne Medicated Skin

When I was on topical acne medication, I used Laura Mercier Oil Free foundation and the their Secret Camouflage concealer.  The key for me was dealing with the dry, flaky skin first.  I moisturized my skin with La Roche-Posay Effaclar H.  Then added a hydrating primer - I don't remember what I used back then, but I think First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer might be a good choice now.
