Does wearing a mask have your skin irritated?
The other day I learned that "maskne" is a term used to describe skin flare ups caused by the masks we're all wearing, some of us allllll daaaaaay looooong. The friction can cause a slew of annoying skin conditions including acne, broken blood vessels and rosacea, to name a few.
Never fear - we have several tips that will help.
1️⃣ CLEANSE! Keeping your skin clean is more important now than ever before. We highly recommend using a cleanser that's packed with antioxidants like our African Red Tea Cleansing Treatment.
2️⃣ PROTECT! Wearing a mask while talking or even breathing can create and trap moisture, which totally throws off the Ph balance of your skin. Sealing in moisture and creating a barrier with our Organic Golden Beauty Oil is key to maintaining skin health. It's packed with Vitamin C to fight environmental stressors.
3️⃣ TREAT! When skin flare ups occur, it's important to treat them swiftly and effectively. The most effective product we have found for these incidents is our Skin Infusion Vital Serum. It's calming, soothing and packed with vitamins A, C and E to stop breakouts in their tracks.
➕ BONUS: We heard from an expert that washing your face mask with your facial cleanser will help eliminate any bacteria that could cause problems. ✔️
Lastly, there's some anecdotal evidence that masks made of silk may help alleviate breakouts as compared to masks made of other materials. Of course, the frontline health care workers who must wear N-95 masks don't have that option - and we extend our most sincere gratitude to all of you for your dedication and selflessness! THANK YOU!
