Psoriasis and makeup: facial routine 

Face psoriasis, makeup tips


Psoriasis affects more than 2 million people in France. This chronic skin disease can spread all over the body or in specific areas. The face is no exception to this rule. Psoriasis is a painful disease because it itches the skin, but it is also very visible. The subjects at facial psoriasis, or even facial eczema, very often feel embarrassed or ashamed to expose their patches. So what to do?

Let your skin breathe and be natural, or are you allowed to wear makeup if you have psoriasis or facial eczema? There are several schools on this question. LM Natura provides you with its advice and analyses.



Against redness, Elle Fanning's oppositeElle Fanning

Do you know the American actress Elle Fanning? The young actress from Maleficent, Somewhere and many other films, decided to take the opposite approach to her eczema. Visibly suffering from regular eczema on her face, the actress posted a photo of herself on social media with the caption: "Eczema, but make it eye shadow."

In people with facial psoriasis or eczema, the plaques are very often located on the top of the forehead, on the temples, around the mouth, around and on the ears, or on the eyelids.

Elle Fanning decided to transform her red eyelids into eye shadow. To do this, nothing could be simpler: a little pink eye shadow. You can choose shades ranging from cool-toned pink to warm-toned brown neutrals.

Then, without touching the plates too much, you can extend them by using a brush and your eyeshadow. We recommend using a finger brush, because if it is not impeccably clean it can damage your redness.

This technique can also be tested on the cheeks with blush. Be careful, however, to maintain a natural appearance.

Following on from this tip, and if we do not wish to directly touch the patches/redness, it is possible to draw the eye of our interlocutors to the blank areas of our face. Since psoriasis follows a rhythm of flare-ups and remissions, light periods are more favorable to this tip. To do this, you need to beautify these areas using highlighter, blush or eyeshadow.

Wear makeup, yes, but as long as you have clean and healthy skin. For this, removing makeup morning and evening is the healthiest solution. In case of facial psoriasis, we recommend using a makeup remover composed of mild surfactants. Furthermore, makeup remover cotton can irritate the plaques, so choose a soft cotton pad or application with your fingers.

It is also important to rinse your face morning and evening with clear, fresh water.


The moisturizing base: key step before makeup for facial psoriasis

By applying a primer, you hydrate your skin and prepare it for makeup. The base must be adapted to the type of skin, sensitive and dry in this case. Depending on the base chosen, the makeup will hold more or less well. It is possible to use the Pso Natura Rich Cream for this purpose. With a strong moisturizing action coupled with a nourishing action, the Rich Cream relieves scaly, red and sensitive skin.
