With the warmer weather firmly here, we want to be wearing a short-sleeved top or dress and a bikini on holiday, but for some of us, this can be a time we dread. The thought of uncovering ourselves makes us feel self conscious, with the fear of bringing unwanted attention. This is where skin camouflage can make an amazing difference.
What would I use skin camouflage for?
Camouflage products can be used to conceal acne scars, psoriasis, flushing/blushing, vitiligo, birthmarks, port wine stains, rosacea, scarring, cover tattoos etc.
What is skin camouflage?
Camouflage products are designed to conceal the above, but at the same time, look very natural on the skin, blending with the surrounding skin tone, so they do not look noticeable. This gives people the confidence to face the world and greatly increases their self-esteem.
How do I know which products and shade of colour are best for me?
With a skin camouflage consultation, a colour match, using a product range best suited to your needs will be found. Tips and techniques for application will be shown, as well as details on where products can be obtained.
How easy is it to become part of my daily routine?
With practice, like anything, the quicker and more experienced you will become.
How long does it last?
Camouflage products will last for up to 8-12 hours on the face and up to 2-3 days on limbs.
I’m going on holiday, will I be able to use camouflage products?
Yes, you can. Non-oil based sun protection can be applied under camouflage. You can also swim whilst wearing camouflage products, as they are waterproof. You just need to remember to pat the skin dry when you get out and not rub. As your tan develops and the colour of your skin changes, camouflage creams can be mixed together to match your darker skin tone.
When camouflage products are used on the face, do they look heavy and artificial?
No, as you need only the smallest amount of camouflage cream for each application, you will be surprised how natural it looks on the skin, but still gives the desired coverage.
Can I still wear make-up over the top?
Yes, the rest of your make-up can be applied as normal.
