Treatment products can be a hit or miss. For example what works well for the actors. What are you trying to problem solve , maintain, or adapt to the present situation. On top of this actors vary on how much time should be spent on this step plus what to use. In general I like to have products that get results , work well under makeup and can be applied quick. If needed it’s also important to have products that work well as spa treatments like facials. Since every actor is different treatment products are tailored to the individual. Sometimes an actor will have their makeup artist from another show send their makeup to you. Ensuring the process is not disrupted from show to show. This can be very helpful. But remember that your film might be a completely different situation. So be vigilant. Explain to the actor why you are going in a different direction.
The following products have been very successful. Our last movie addressed sun, sun damage, acne, sunscreens, salt water, chlorine, wind, and different age groups. Most often products with moisture for dry and damaged skin was used. Although many products have multiple functions so always refer to the directions. For example La Mer has a whole line of products that are oil free and for sensitive skin tones.
