Anyone who's ever lived with eczema knows just how annoying it can be—especially when a flair-up effects your face.
While most eczema sufferers attribute the inflammation to genetics or other underlying health conditions, harsh chemicals and irritating products are guaranteed to exacerbate the problem. For those of us who wear makeup, its easy to find ourselves in a vicious cycle of flair ups caused by foundation, which then requires more makeup to cover up, which just makes eczema worse, and so on. Luckily, with these foundations and concealers formulated specifically for sensitive skin, you can break out of the cycle and live a happier, eczema-free life.
While Rainforest of the Sea is a truly unbearable name for anything—made particularly darkly comical by the fact that both the sea and the rainforest are being devastated by the effects of climate change—this is a pretty stellar foundation. Tarte isn't known for its sensitive skin formulas, but this foundation is an exception, formulated without harsh chemicals, it's also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.
