What Is Camouflage Cream?

Camouflage cream is a makeup, which with its high pigmented magic, offers powerful coverage to conceal skin concerns like vitiligo patches, scars, and birthmarks, nurturing acceptance and confidence in you. 

The rich shades of the cream don't just hold onto your skin. It calms your anxieties down and helps you find your abode of solace. And, yes, this cream which has a waterproof and sweatproof formulation can be a part of your life - summer, winter or spring. You can confidently face any challenges and be ready to take on the world. 

But, please remember, you are a twinkling star, illuminating radiance wherever you go, no matter if you choose to use camouflage cream or not. You are beautiful because, of course, you are you! 

How To Apply The Cream?

Even if you are new to makeup, you will find applying camouflage cream is as easy as a breeze. For flawless coverage, select a concealer shade that mirrors your natural skin. 

Slowly dab a small amount of cream directly into the areas you want to cover using fingertips, makeup brushes or blenders, your pick! Lock in the cream using a translucent powder and minimise creasing. 

How To Remove The Cream?

Now, let's focus on the important question of the hour: how to clear away the cream from your skin. 

Cleanse It Out

Cleansing is a vital step of your everyday skincare routine to lay the foundation of a healthy skin. 

You can let your skin breathe by not just eliminating your cream but also the dust, dirt, oil and other impurities that lurk within, to feel refreshed. Keep your pores clean, prevent breakouts and watch your skin glow with the pampering!

Choosing Cleansers

  • For daily removal of camouflage cream, reach for hydrating cleansing lotion or mild soap that is gentle on your skin, but rough on the cream. 
  • It is best to prioritise fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic options for a kinder touch on your skin. 
  • Lukewarm water can be used for cleansing, to maintain the moisture barrier and preserve the natural oil in your skin. 
  • The stubborn waterproof formula of the camouflage cream may demand the need for a makeup remover for an initial breakdown before you start with the cleansing process. 
  • But avoid harsh cleansers or alcohol-based makeup removers as they may irritate or dry your skin, leaving you feeling uncomfortable. 
  • As a rule of thumb, always test any new product on a small area of your skin to check for sensitivity. 

Method Of Cleansing 

Massage the cleansing cream in light, swirling motions using your fingertips and make sure to cover all the areas previously touched by the camouflage cream. 

Your skin is as delicate as a flower. So, treat it with kindness and avoid aggressive scrubbing as it can irritate you. Let the cascade of water wash away every last trace of the product and pat dry clean with a soft towel or gently press your skin with the damp cotton wipes. 

Oh, show some tender loving attention to your brushes or other applicators too. Taking care of them actually means taking care of you and your skin. So, rinse them thoroughly in water to get rid of the makeup residue and bacteria. And, dry them properly to prevent any moisture buildup. 

Moisturise Well

Moisturising your skin affected by vitiligo, especially after removing the camouflage cream, is essential to promote overall skin health by keeping it soft, supple and hydrated. Well, you shouldn't skip this valuable product! 

Similar to the cleansers, follow the track of opting for the hypoallergenic moisturiser that is free from any fragrances. Moisturisers containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides shield your skin from dryness and make it plump and smooth. 

Just like how the plant needs water to flourish, your skin requires the moisturiser to feel nourished. So, spread it evenly across your skin in a soothing way and don't forget to pay special attention to the regions with vitiligo spots while applying it. Ah, your skin will enjoy a healthy glow. And, trust us, your radiant smile would attest to this experience. 

Like the river that gracefully navigates the path irrespective of the challenges it faces,  you can carve out your own vitiligo expedition of strength and discovery. And we, at Darclore, are with you, today and always!
