Covering Your Bruises and Scars From Cosmetic Surgery With Makeup
Special makeup techniques that cover your cosmetic facelift scars and post-surgical incisions will help you put your best face forward while in recovery. For best results, you'll need makeup that adheres to scar tissue, but is not so heavy it creates an obvious mask on your face. Contact Us
Recommended brands for makeup use vary widely; Dermablend, MAC, mineral makeup and varying array of brands are all said to be good for covering scars.
More important than the makeup brand used is the method of application used to cover your post-op scars. Makeup application can be tricky with conventional day-to-day cosmetics; therefore the art of makeup for incisions is that much more of a challenge.
Learn the best makeup and application techniques for you by setting up an appointment with a makeup artist who specializes in covering incisions and concealing bruises. They can also teach you neat skin care tips that will further enhance your appearance during and beyond your healing period.
Male patients can use makeup to conceal their surgical scars as well and some opt to grow out their beard as a means to help camouflage their scars.
Even if you consider yourself a "manly man," keep in mind that it's not in your best interest to go on with your daily activities looking like you've been in a nasty barfight (and you won't want to look in the mirror either).
Suck up that male ego and invest in a small amount of cosmetics until you can go out bare-faced and handsome.
Despite the sex of the person needing makeup, it's imperative that they perform a "front door" check after makeup application to ensure their coverage is sufficient. To perform a front door check, apply your makeup and then step outside to check your coverage.
An appropriate amount of coverage covers your scars, yet gives you a natural appearance. Shades of makeup that are too ashy, too white, too gray, or just otherwise obvious may need correction - either of the application or in the choice of makeup itself.
The length of time that people need makeup post-cosmetic surgery varies from person to person. Some individuals need makeup for 6 weeks; others may need makeup for about 2 months. It all depends on the level of bruising and scarring you experience.
While you're healing, the bruising and scars might put a damper on your healing, but don't worry! Just tell yourself you'll look wonderful when everything is said and done. Once healed, most people find they need significantly less makeup than they did prior to having surgery; others have more fun experimenting freely with their "new face."
Either way, once the healing has completed you'll find the recovery - bruising included - was worth it.

The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.
It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.
