The only thing I have ever seen is Burnt Cork rubbed on the face. I don`t think they needed to after all the dirt sweat and tears that was flowing. Interested to know though

Camo cream wasn't really a thing in WW2. As noted above, burnt Cork, boot polish, mud... were sometimes used.

Most frontline soldiers were pretty grubby and/or suntanned anyway.
