See the difference with skin camouflage
If it’s what you want, this is your chance to blend in.
Searching for “Skin Camouflage Surrey”? If you have a visual difference, especially a facial one, life can be very difficult. Being stared at, asked personal and distressing questions is an experience that may be impacting your confidence, self-esteem and well-being.
Your visual difference is a part of your identity, and what makes you unique. However, if it’s causing you anguish, camouflage cream can be a solution. It will help to reduce the visibility of your skin condition, enabling you to increase your confidence.
Camouflage is a specifically designed cream to help cover discolouration of burns, scars, birthmarks and pigmentation. It is fully waterproof, transference proof and can be applied daily without any problem to the skin. It can last two to three days on the torso and limbs, and up to 24 hours on the face. There is a vast range of colours and products available, so a full consultation is required as colours can change when applied to different skin types. Typically, one colour is used to make the process easily manageable and quick.
You will learn the application and removal techniques to apply the cream and powder yourself.
Skin Camouflage is suitable for:
- Scars & Stretch marks – must be fully healed
- Birthmarks (port wine stains)
- Rosacea & acne
- Bruises & post-surgical discolouration
- Age spots & thread veins
- Hyper pigmentation and uneven skin tone
Pigmentation can be partially or fully concealed. Port wine stains for example may be part of your identity, but camouflage can be used to tone the colour down rather than covering it up totally.
Conditions that need medical treatment and MUST NOT be concealed with camouflage products include:
- allergic reactions
- bacterial and fungal infections, such as impetigo and tinea (ringworm)
- blister and ulcerated skin
- illnesses that visually manifest on skin, such as chickenpox and measles
- infestations, such as scabies and lice
- occupational/contact dermatitis
- open wounds
- over sutures (stitches)
- photodermatoses, such as actinic dermatitis
- psoriasis to nails, persistent palmoplantar and pustular forms of psoriasis
- skin cancers
- undiagnosed lesions
- undiagnosed rashes
- varicose veins
- viral infections, such as herpes simplex, herpes zoster (shingles) and warts
Products are not sold at the clinic, but the distributors details will be given along with an approximate cost. At the time of writing the creams ranged from £11.50 – £19.99, and the powders from £12 – £22.99. Camouflage can be prescribed at your doctor’s discretion, so please ask if you require a letter from us for your GP.
Don’t continue to stand out for reasons that make you unhappy. Skin Camouflage is a flexible, manageable and successful solution, one which can make a real difference to your life.

Working with the Katie Piper Foundation
The Katie Piper Foundation’s aim is to have a world where scars do not limit a person’s function, social inclusion or sense of well being. They help people with burns and scars to reconnect with their lives and their communities.
I first started working with the Katie Piper Foundation workshops, where a group of professional makeup artists, hairdressers, nail artists and Camouflage practitioners would all give practical advice and hands on techniques to help people recovering from burns. Knowledge that had taken years to obtain through experience and practice was freely given in a comfortable atmosphere where understanding, non judgement, empathy and fun could be mixed to create a safe, relaxed atmosphere for burn survivors.
I collaborated with The Katie Piper Foundation and The Telegraph to create a time-lapse video of myself applying Camouflage and Makeup on a burns survivor demonstrating the positive effects this has on her physical and mental wellbeing.
