· How do I use Skin Camouflage?

Camouflage is simple to use!

It should not be noticeable when used correctly. After practising a few times, you will become expert in managing your camouflage.

Always make sure the area you are applying camouflage is clean and dry.  You may apply skin medication (an ointment or silicone gel), sun protection or a moisturiser a few minutes before the camouflage to allow your skin to absorb the treatment. Blot off any excess with a tissue.

We recommend you remove your camouflage each day. This will allow you to apply medication, sun protection and moisturiser. It will also give you the opportunity to inspect your skin for any changes which may need medical attention.


You will find a little camouflage product goes a long way!

Remove enough camouflage from the container and place it in your palm – this will slightly warm it, which will make it easier to apply.

Cosmetic sponges are rarely used; brushes are better for very small areas; most people will use clean fingertips to apply over the area requiring camouflage. Try to avoid the unaffected skin, then blend in the edges.

Apply powder to set the camouflage.

Then brush off any excess powder.

It’s that simple!

Make-up can be worn in conjunction with skin camouflage.

Beard shadow can be applied using skin camouflage.

You should not use camouflage over undiagnosed skin conditions,
including a rash, an open would, surgical stitches and infections.
If you notice a change to your skin condition, including moles,
you should stop using it and see your doctor

Due to the C-19 pandemic skin camouflage practitioners have suspended their clinic consultations. It is impossible to achieve a skin matching service by zoom or other social media platforms. It is anticipated that clinics will not resume until their Risk Assessment Dept agrees that safeguarding protocols are in place. We are unable to offer any advice as to which BASC graduates within the NHS or freelance have restarted their skin camouflage service.
