Second-Skin Product Evens Out The Most Troubled Skin featured image

Living with href=”http://www.newbeauty.com/dailybeauty/entry.aspx?id=5358″>rosacea, birthmarks, scars or burns can be embarrassing and even cause people to withdraw from social situations. But advances in camouflaging products have miraculously shown to, at least temporarily, create even skin tones for even the most challenging cases.

One such product, Microskin, is an alcohol-based liquid that is either airbrushed on larger areas or applied with a sponge for small sections. The color is customized for any skin tone and the second-skin-like product is applied to the epidermal layer. It’s flexible and allows the skin to breathe while camouflaging all types of skin-tone disparities (although it will not change the texture of your skin).

Since it is not a makeup, cream or powder, the waterproof formula can last up to two days on the face and even longer on the body, and won’t wipe off on clothing.

“Microskin is not a treatment or medication for skin conditions, but it can be another acceptable option for helping patients achieve cosmetic improvement,” Los Angeles dermatologist Naissan Wesley, MD, wrote in Skin & Allergy News.

Consultations and training must be done in-person at one of the company’s centers in either New York or Pasadena, CA. Also keep in mind that costs vary depending on the area of skin treated.
