This year, face masks have become part of our new wardrobe staple in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in our communities. Either you opted for a cloth material or a disposable protective mask; you may have noticed the apparition of unwanted pimples on your nose, cheeks and chin, the worsening of blackheads and maybe even experienced some skin irritation and redness caused by the chaffing of the mask on your skin.
If those “symptoms” seem familiar, you might be experiencing what dermatologists called “Maskne” – the development of adult acne and irritation from wearing a mask.
Gee, can 2020 get any worst?!
Why do I get pimples?
Simple breathing with a mask creates the perfect environment and moisture level for breakouts. If on top of that you are exercising or talking on the phone, sweat, sebum production and make-up trapped under the mask are all the ingredients for a disastrous recipe leading to clogged pores and inflammation giving birth to the dreaded pimples.
With the summer months ahead and the need to continue wearing a mask in many states for a while, it is important to adopt the right routine as soon as possible to give your skin the best chance to keep its glow zits-free!
How to avoid Maskne
1/ Cleanse with a gentle cleanser that won’t dry out the skin and won’t strip it from its natural oils. Rinse-free micellar waters like Bioderma Sebium H2Oor soap-free gel such as Avene Cleanance Gel can be good options.
2/ Moisturise with a lightweight moisturizer or serum to target impurities, even out skin complexion and keep sebum to a healthy level. Our picks from dermatologists recommended-skincare brands:Uriage Hyseac 3 Regul Control Cream and Avene Cleanance Comedomed.
3/ Protect your skin from sun damage with BB Cream with a high SPF protection. We highly recommend BiodermaPhotoderm BB Cream: it gives your skin an instant glow and it's spf50+!
5/ Exfoliate weekly and rebalance the skin with a face mask. We love the vegan-friendly Cattier Purifying Clay Mask, it will absorb oil and impurities and detoxify your skin!
