Men and Smart Cover

When you hear the word “cosmetic,” you tend to think of makeup, of course, and women wanting to look their very best. Indeed, women in the United States and across the globe love Smart Cover Cosmetics. If you’re a “girly girl,” you can have a great time experimenting with our diverse product line. But what about men and Smart Cover?

As pioneers of the camouflage cosmetics industry, Flori and I have sought to help people with serious skin issues face the world with a renewed sense of confidence and well being. For chronic acne sufferers, people with melasma, vitiligo, psoriasis, port wine birthmarks, and other skin afflictions, ordinary makeup was virtually useless.

Men and Smart Cover

And the reality is, it’s not just women who deal with the self-consciousness that can accompany having a prominent scar or skin discoloration. For a man with vitiligo, for example, the syndrome is compounded by the societal expectation that a man shouldn’t care how he looks, and certainly shouldn’t be buying any kind of cosmetic product. This, of course, is nonsense, and Smart Cover is proud to have a client base of men whose outlooks have been transformed by finally having a product that provides complete coverage of their skin issues (when they want to  cover it), with a simple application process and a product that won’t come off at inopportune times.

If you’re a man hiding a scar or a large birthmark, you can apply the Perfect Touch Camouflage Creme or Smart Cover Concealing Crème, and rest assured that going for a swim won’t wash off the product. Smart Cover stays on until you’re ready to take it off. It’s another instrument in your toolbox to help you face the world head-on!

Do You Have Scars?

heatherA scar can leave an emotional mark as well a visible, physical one. Some people have scars caused by serious injuries, major surgery or even chronic diseases such as lupus. Scars can serve as a daily reminder of a traumatic event. In some cases, the presence of the scar itself is distressing.

Writes psychologist Patricia Price: “Society places a great deal of importance on how we look. While scars are considered desirable in some societies and may even be inflicted deliberately, in the majority of cultures this is not the case.”

Some people prefer to bare their scars proudly, as symbolic badges of courage representing challenges they’ve overcome. That kind of self-acceptance is truly admirable; it’s a beautiful thing to see people feeling comfortable in their own skin. As Kitty Dimbleby explains for the Daily Mail, “My battle wounds show the world what I have survived…”

For those who want to retain the option to conceal their scars, Smart Cover has the tools for complete coverage, so everyone can feel confident. Smart Cover’s Concealing Crème provides opaque, long-lasting coverage with a natural-looking matte finish. It’s waterproof, so even if you go for a swim in the ocean, the Concealing Crème will stay on until you’re ready for it to come off.

Living with scars looks different for everybody, whether it’s how you got your scar to how you feel about letting the world see it. What we all have in common is the universal desire to feel like our true selves, and not to be defined by one superficial trait. We all deserve to feel beautiful and we are all entitled to find our own path to get there.

If concealing a scar (or any other skin imperfection) makes you feel like your best you, Smart Cover has exactly what you’re looking for!
