KEEP IT CLEAN

applying makeup and/or concealer after a treatment that disrupts the surface
of the skin. For instance, a client should:
• Never share makeup or skincare applicators
• Use their own products
• Always keep post-surgical makeup and tools sanitary
• Ideally use a disposable applicator, such as a cotton bud, to scoop produce
from original containers
• Place applicators on a sanitised tray or palette to work with rather than from
the container so as to avoid cross contamination.
• Avoid touching their face with their fingers -- use disposable gloves if possible
• Avoid natural or home-made products without any clinically proven and safe
antibacterial preservatives or clinical testing, as this can be very hazardous for
• Be just as scrupulous about makeup removal. For makeup like mineral
powders, remove the top layer with a cotton ball and invest in a sanitising
product consisting of 70 percent alcohol or greater for the above purpose -- it
helps remove bacteria and also keeps product looking new.
