Q. What is Skin Camouflage?
A. Skin camouflage is the art of concealing a skin blemish, discolouration, tattoo, scar or
birthmark with the application of specialist camouflage creams that are matched and
blended to the surrounding skin. The key is in the matching and blending.
Skin camouflage can be performed as a “one-off” for a special occasion (eg. Covering
a tattoo that Granny didn’t know about for your wedding) or training is offered in self
application for long-term use.
Q. How long does it last?
A. Correctly applied the creams are waterproof and may safely be left on for 12 hours on
the face or up to 2 days on the rest of the body.
Q.How do I know which products and shade of colour are best for me?
A. It would be hard to make a choice without professional assistance.
Contact Lynette Holtrigter who is a specially trained Para-medical makeup artist for a
consultation. She can advise an acceptable colour match for your skin and show you
application techniques. Contact Lynette
Q. Where do I purchase the products from?
A. You can purchase the products from Dermal Cover through Lynette.
Q. Do you offer training?
A. Yes. Colour matching and self-application training is available for individuals or groups through Dermal Cover.
See the contact us page.
Q. Can I still wear makeup over the top of camouflage?
A. Yes, the rest of your makeup can be applied as normal.
Q. Can men use camouflage?
A. Yes. It is a camouflage system which was originally developed during World war II
for use on fighter pilot burn victims.
Q. Is Camouflage suitable for children?
A. Yes. The products are hyperallergenic and dermatologically tested. In fact for children
with visible birthmarks and scars it can make a big difference to their self-esteem and
minimise school bullying. Children can be initially trained by a Para-medical makeup
artist to apply their own makeup each day.
Q. Can I use Camouflage to cover my Acne?
A. Yes, provided your skin is healed. Teenagers suffer acne at a time in their life when they
start to care about their looks. Mother nature can be cruel.
Q. Can I use Camouflage on an open wound?
A. No, under no circumstances. The skin must be healed and sealed.
Q. What skin conditions can skin camouflage be used on?
A. Non-contageous skin conditions such as birthmarks, port wine stains, vitiligo,
pigmentation, scars, tattoos and radiography markings. The area must not be blistered
or open and the skin needs to be totally healed and sealed.
Q. Can I play sports or swim in Skin Camouflage?
A. Yes. Our skin camouflage products are waterproof. No product is rub-proof so there
will be some transference onto clothes, bedding and furnishings. It is best to pat or air
dry the camouflaged area after getting wet. Rubbing it will take it off.
Q. How do I remove Skin Camouflage?
A. Skin Camouflage can be removed with soap and water, skin wipes or special cleansing
