Preparation of the skin
 
Clean the skin properly before applying camouflage make-up. Apply Dermacolor Cleansing Lotion with cotton pads gently onto the skin. The use of DC Cleansing Lotion ensures the waterproofing properties of the camouflage. If needed, apply DC Moisturizer Cream afterwards.
 
Color choice
 
From the various shades available, choose a shade which closely matches the skintone. Such matching should preferably be done in daylight for optimum results. Remember that DC Camouflage Cream is intermixable and a mixture of shades may be required in order to achieve a better result.
Your natural skin tone may vary from time to time due to environmental influences such as sunlight and changing seasons, therefore, it is recommended to have 2-3 different shades available. Occasionally check which shade is most appropriate.
 
Application
 
For an easy application of Dermacolor apply DC Camouflage Cream onto the back of the hand. It is recommended to use a DC Applicator for an easy and hygienic sampling of DC Camouflage Cream from the container or palette. Apply DC Camouflage Cream thinly and evenly with a sponge or using fingers for about 2 cm past the edge of the area you would like to camouflage by taking DC Camouflage Cream from the back of your hand. Blend the DC Cream away from the edges with a sponge or brush. It may be necessary to dampen the sponge during the application. The mixing of skin tones gives a natural appearance when applied as directed.
DC Camouflage Cream can be applied in several layers to get a perfect result.
 
Shading
 
To achieve a natural camouflage effect, proper highlighting and shading (or the application of rouge) is necessary. D32 is the ideal rouge color.
Apply gently and blend in the choice of Dermacolor Rouge from the cheekbone fading away at the temple. Eyebrows and the male beard and moustache areas can be shaded with D40 or other comparable dark colors. It is recommended to use the Stipple Sponge (Kryolan Art. 1454) to achieve a perfect result.
 
Powdering/Fixing
 
After DC Camouflage Cream has been applied correctly, powder the make-up with DC Fixing Powder using a powder puff so that all the corrected areas are covered. While powdering, make sure that you press the powder into the make-up. It is not sufficient to superficially powder just the camouflage. Dust off the excess powder with a powder brush or remove it gently with a damp sponge. After this fixing process, the treated areas are abrasion and water-proof. This effect can be further enhanced by the use of DC Fixing Spray especially on problematic areas such as neck and hands. It is recommended to spray DC Fixing Spray from a distance of approx. 1 ft. onto the skin.
 
Uneven skin
 
Under special circumstances, if the skin has scars or uneven surfaces, these can be smoothed over with Dermacolor Skin Plastic. However, it is recommended that DC Skin Plastic be applied by a trained make-up artist.
 
Additional Make-up
 
If desired, a dry make-up may be applied over the treated areas.
 
Touching up
 
Touch up is not necessary. Once Dermacolor products are applied as directed the make-up will be waterproof and should last the whole day. If a touch up is still needed reapplication of Dermacolor is suggested.
 
Removal
 
Use Dermacolor Cleansing Cream, or in the case of very sensitive skin, Dermacolor Cleansing Milk. Apply Dermacolor cleansing preparations gently onto the made up skin areas until the camouflage is gently removed from the skin. The use of cotton pads is recommended. A second application may be required.
 
Final cleansing
 
For the final cleansing apply Dermacolor Cleansing Lotion using cotton pads gently onto the desired skin area.
For a milder application of DC Cleansing Lotion, you may wish to dilute your product with distilled water.
 
Dermacolor products are clinically tested. No toxic or allergic reaction has been observed. You will find more information in the section Extract of a Test Approval.
