on most commercials sets carried a good collection of what could be called a very simplistic healthcare set... a mini first aid kit even. On movies, luckily, we've always had a medic or health officer, as far as I can remember...I've been in the business for two decades!
My larger bottles of sunscreen are carried with my other basic skincare, and form part of my everyday skin prep for all my artists. As makeup artists our job is to care for the talent's skin, and we don't always have time to make sure that every crew member has remembered to put on some sunblock, which is why I'm over the moon when I see a medic on set, so that I can remain focused on my actors and models.
But most crew on some of my smaller jobs do come in search of 'the good stuff'...so I tend to carry larger quantities of SPF 50 sunscreen. And it becomes and arduous burden carrying larger sized products, so I am currently considering all my options for decanting and carrying smaller sized products in my kit. If you've also been considering this, please share your most helpful tips in the comments section.
Thanks for reading.
