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!

try  the cover fx line im positive you will love it the total cover cream foundation is what i used when my skin was adjusting to my acne  products this line was specially formulated for sensitive skin   and skin that has been severely damaged ( burn victims etc) its a great line 

Re: Foundation for Acne medicated skin

Honestly, you may be better off just applying concealer to the necessary areas, and blending it out with a damp sponge. This will insure better coverage on those areas you want covered, a slight bit of coverage on the rest of your face, and won't make you feel like your skin is cakey. A translucent powder is also good as a topper, it doesn't add anything heavy to the make layers, and it keeps everything in place. Sometimes the best makeup look, is the natural one, where you show a few imperfections, but overall your skin is even.
