I am a huge fan of Lycogel for many reasons. This silica (crushed quartz) based camouflage is unbelievably healing. Lycogel Camouflage Foundation is the first truly breathable makeup that enhances the skin’s appearance and condition, this triple-silica-gel based foundation contains Lycogel Complex, a patented formula proven to increase oxygen and stimulate healthy new skin cells. Lycogel produces a light, velvety second-skin effect, virtually concealing acne, psoriasis, rosacea and other sensitive skin conditions while soothing and protecting the skin. Lycogel, the first breathable colour corrective treatment that combines cosmetic and skincare technology to promote post-procedure healing, soothe sensitive skin, rejuvenate and camouflage at the same time. It’s important to apply moisturiser before applying the Lycogel which distributes the camouflage makeup well.
Lycogel Breathable Camouflage was originally developed to meet the need for an effective cover up that could be worn by patients directly after cosmetic procedures to camouflage the signs of intervention and promote a quick and comfortable recovery. Previously, all applications for post procedure skin care consisted of clear, petroleum based products whose only function was to stop the skin drying out. These were occlusive, comedogenic and offered no camouflage or therapeutic effect. Lycogel dramatically changed this and offered the only gel based cosmetic product that could be applied directly to the skin immediately after plastic surgery, laser, cosmetic injections and other result oriented procedures.
Not long after the introduction of Lycogel did feedback start coming in from Physicians that their patients were returning to purchase more of the product, not because their skin had not yet recovered but due to the unique finish and anti – ageing benefits. Also, people with sensitive skin types such as Acne, Rosacea and Eczema, who typically could not tolerate makeup found the comfort Lycogel offered them. Since then the benefits of this unique formula have been discovered by many around the world and found suitable for use as an everyday, skin improving camouflage with 30 SPF.
