Dear Beauty Queen: Whenever I use cover-up type makeup on my face I break out and my face is red, bumpy and worse than ever. Is there a type of makeup I could use that would help to avoid this problem?
Beauty Queen: Well, that’s not good! Makeup is supposed to make you feel better about yourself, not make matters worse. The good news is a makeup called Dermacia MD Lycogel may work for you. This makeup is actually designed to be used after cosmetic procedures like chemical peels, laser resurfacing and even surgery, which is why it’s sold mainly in doctor’s offices.
If you’re wondering how it’s different from other makeup, Lycogel allows your skin to absorb more oxygen, it’s water – and transfer-resistant, and it has the power to cover scars, blemishes and discoloration without looking too heavy. I tried to find an official site where you can find a doctor near you so you can try the colors in person, but I didn’t have any luck. However, I did find the makeup on a site called LovelySkin.com. I hope it works for you, but if you have another reaction, I think it’s time to see a dermatologist.
