Face masks meet skin care
Face masks can cause skin issues for two main reasons, friction (rubbing or chafing of the mask against your face) and pore suffocation (fabric doesn’t allow pores to breathe). Both of these issues can lead to congestion, breakouts, general skin irritations and flare ups of skin conditions and in some situations cuts and abrasions.
The truth is, that a mask is creating a perfect dark and humid breeding ground for bacteria!
The most important step to conquer maskne or any mask irritation is hydration. Well moisturised skin will reduce the risk of irritations caused from skin-to-mask friction and the right product will help create that breathable barrier and protect your skin from nasty bacteria.
How to avoid maskne?
Wash your cloth mask every day! That’s right, as the mask is constantly touching our face it’s important to practice perfect hygiene when it comes to things on our skin.
Avoid wearing makeup underneath your mask. Allowing your skin to breathe is key to preventing maskne so skip makeup and switch to a gentle breathable skincare routine
