We do not paint anyone who has a contagious illness, or who has open sores or wounds. Even acne should be avoided, as the necessary rubbing to remove the paint can also cause irritation to the sensitized skin. In cases like this, we suggest painting another area, such as the arm.
If you suspect that your skin is sensitive skin you could test the paint on the inside of your wrist before we begin. If there is no reaction after a few minutes will be safe to proceed.
If your skin becomes itchy or irritated, you will need to instantly remove the face paint and apply a barrier cream. Even then a few people have still have a reaction to the barrier cream and it is best not to apply the face paint in this case.
