We know that special products may be required for these skin problems. Therefore, for this year's Healthy Beauty Awards we have used a series of color adjustments and cover-ups to determine which were the best products for actual coverage and concealment.
Aside from scars and discoloration, the right make-up products can also help people with spotty or sparse eyebrows and eyelashes, whether they get a bit too nervous during the '90s trend or for health reasons like trichotillomania also called hair removal disorder. SELF's editor-in-chief wrote an essay on how, after years of living with trichotillomania, she helps a good eyebrow pencil to leave the house. During the testing process, she was a big fan of the victorious brow pin down.
