Hi,good morning!
I'm looking for a concealer that will not make the problem worse. (Fair skin tone). Better with some healing essential oils and without spirits.

I've been dealing with DH for the past seven months--it won't go away because there's iodine in my thyroid medication (ugh!). So, in order to hide the very prominent purple and red sores/scars, I've used Dior's Air Flash. Although it was developed to actually spray directly on a person's face, I spray a little into the palm of my hand and then use a small cosmetic brush to apply it only where I need coverage. My friends swear they can't see that my skin is at all damaged. This stuff is the best I've ever found. You can find it at Macy's, and they'll let you sample it right there. I also use the fairest shade. I have to admit, though, that it's a bit pricey; however, I've used the same can for over two years on nearly a daily basis.

I also use this product on scars on my lower leg--I'm finally able to wear shorts again. You really can't distinguish it from real skin--it doesn't look cakey or fake at all.

Thank You very much for the advice! We are in shortage of cosmetic brands. I was absolutely pleased with Shiseido Concealer Stick Nr.1 but now they discontinued. It's allright with the price,I need it not in so much amounts (but every day). Especially I liked it for staying on face while swimming. So I'm looking for smth similar,in a form of stick and with beeswack. Just to put it on the object and forget. I have tried Body Shop concealer but it's visible as a patch and not the right tone. Some other brands made the dermatitis worse (the creamy consistence and with brush).

FernW,have You tried essentional oils on the skin (Chamomelis,Tea Tee,Cinnamon etc)? Take a good base oil and mix in small amount of ess.oils,very calming :) . From the ready made I like Darphin,it's a wonder. My legs itch like hell,I have psoriase type patches and often wake up in the mornings scratching my legs. So the elbows,I had to buy some extra cashmere jumpers because I could't wear lambs wool (I'm from North,our winters are terribly cold). I got rid of my elbow patches just by putting there Darphin oil mix and vaselin containing cream. Where have I been earlier??
