Remedial Skin Camouflage
What is Skin Camouflage?
If you are looking for:
- Scar cover up
- Suffer from psoriasis
- Have a birthmark
- Port wine stain
- Acne scarring
- Or an unwanted tattoo
Which makes you feel self-conscious and want to keep covered up, even in the Summer months, then by learning how to effectively use skin camouflage products will enable you to wear your Summer clothes/swimming costume/ball gown/wedding outfit with complete confidence.
I swam in the main pool with my 2 year old daughter for the very, very first time and nobody knew there was anything wrong with my skin (the pool was full of people). I was so happy I cried…

How do I know which products and shade of colour are best for me?
During a Skin Camouflage Consultation, we will look at which products best suit your needs and find a colour match that will conceal and blend with your surrounding skin tones. I will then teach you how to apply the products to get the best effect, giving you tips and techniques for application and where you can obtain the products.
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.
Once applied, how natural do the products look on the skin?
As only a small amount of camouflage cream is used with each application and blends completely with your natural skin tone, the products look very natural on the skin, but still give the desired coverage.
If camouflage products are used on the face, can I still wear make-up over the top?
Yes, your make-up can be applied as normal.
Expert Witness Reports
I produce Expert Witness reports for personal injury/negligence cases, which includes a skin camouflage consultation and medico legal report with assessment of the costs involved to meet the client’s requirements for the use of camouflage products and ancillary items.
