perioral dermatitis

Question: I am trying to manage perioral dermatitis. During the summer, I was prescribed tetracycline for the problem. It helped for awhile, but the dermatitis is back again. I have a tendency to want to put hydrocortisone because it temporarily helps. I want to try to manage this in every way I can. I recently purchased the Cleansing Milk by Juice Beauty to wash my face with. I just would like to know if I should look into changing my foundation? I currently use Clinque and have also used Estee Lauder. Can these foundations cause more problems for me? What would you suggest? Thanks

Perioral dermatitis as I’m sure you know is generally caused by products such as toothpaste and/or products used on the face. I think it would be a good idea for you to consider using mineral makeup such as Jane Iredale Makeup or Colorescience Makeup. For proper color matching I suggest you call our customer service center at 1-800-213-3376. Best skin care wishes.
