I am one of nearly 32 million people in the United States who live with eczema, otherwise known as those blotchy, red, dry patches that typically flare-up in-between seasons or for no reason at all. Most of the Internets advice for treating it is relegated to the skincare realm; more specifically, the rich, creamy hydrators that soothe cracked skin and inflammation without causing even more damage. What we dont talk about enough is the best makeup for eczema, which also has to be moisture-rich and non-irritating.

In other words, I want to cover my blemishes, but not at the expense of creating new ones or a greasy complexion, courtesy of foundation thats just a smidge too rich. Thankfully, some of todays best-selling brands are paying attention to the unique needs of those with eczema-prone skin and most of them are even doctor-approved. Keep scrolling to see 12 mostly affordable finds that dermatologists and beauty pros wouldnt want to confiscate from your vanity.
