"All of the actors required a LOT of makeup and it was on their faces for long periods of time, so we needed to take particular care of their skins. Vampires don't perspire, don't grow facial hair, don't get lines and certainly don’t get BLEMISHES!
We loved Dermalogica’s Active Moist which we used on most of the cast as it is quite universal and suits most types of skin. The Pre-Cleanse was invaluable for cleansing off the body make up, especially because we had to apply a make up fixative and it was difficult to remove. But we didn't want anything that was harsh or might induce a reaction.
The Intensive Eye Cream was great for keeping the fine lines around the eyes at bay. A TINY amount patted under the eye for "final checks" (on top of the makeup) did wonders to diminish the lines for close ups.
And finally, the Shave System for Men was used on all of the guys with great success! Again, it was really important to be sympathetic to their skins as they had to have a REALLY CLOSE shave. I'm a great fan of the shaving oil and it can be used for "wet" shaves or electric shaves! We even had to shave some of them in the middle of the day to maintain the smooth look to their skin!
I also loved the Renewal Lip Complex to keep their lips smooth during the cold, windy days during exterior filming.
In fact, we used a lot of the skin care on the entire cast!"

“My daily regimen includes Dermalogica sunscreen. They also have a really great “special clearing booster” for spot treatment on blemishes. It’s a little more involved on set with hot towel treatments and Dermalogica pre-cleanse to get all that white makeup off. We use a lot Dermalogica products…I love the Microfoliant!”
Tinsel Corey, “Emily, the pack mother”
“My daily skin regimen is a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Once a week an exfoliant, and a hydrating mask. I alternate between products though, one of my favorites is Dermalogica. One of main things that also helps with my skin is taking my multi-vitamins, zinc and flaxseed oil caps.”
