WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE TAKEN
WHEN USING MAKE-UP ON A PIGMENTATION DISORDER?
A pigmentation disorder, whether it is hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation, can worsen when the skin is irritated. So you must be very careful when treating your face. Make-up must be removed gently using a non-irritating product applied with a cotton pad. The make-up products must have a light texture so that they are easy to apply and to remove.
ARE THERE MAKE-UP PRODUCTS THAT
PROVIDE COVERAGE BUT THAT HAVE LIGHT TEXTURES?
Yes: make-up products designed to correct imperfections. They are called "corrective foundations". They are denser in pigments than traditional foundations, therefore they provide more coverage. They have a supple structure that makes them easy to apply. Moreover, they are formulated for use on damaged skin and pose no risk of allergy or irritation.
DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR TECHNIQUE
FOR APPLYING MAKE-UP TO THESE DAMAGED AREAS?
Most importantly, you cannot try to unify your complexion: the result would not be natural. For pigmentation disorders, I use two shades: one light and one dark. I apply them by patting with the pads of my finger (light shade on dark skin and dark shade on light skin) in quick strokes, alternating the two shades.
