A woman in a nurse's top, wearing glasses with white hair tied up, applies skin camouflage products to a man's face. We can see the back of the man's head only - he has some stubble on his face and wears a shirt and a blue jumper.

Our Skin Camouflage Service gives people living with a visible difference a choice over their appearance.
