Maskne, or mask related acne, is caused by wearing a face mask that causes friction on your skin. This opens up the skin barrier to allow bacteria and oil to form and cause irritation, dry skin, oily skin and at times a breakout. Not to mention, the extra stress of the day with all new rules and procedures. Lets look at some ways we can create an environment that will help keep skin clear, looking and feeling fresh. Here are a few things the Yummy Life Naturals team of experts recommend.
Step 1: Wash yo face! Start with clean skin. Before placing a mask on your precious face cleanse, exfoliate, spritz with a toning mist and finish with a fragrance free moisturizer. This is a barrier for keeping bacteria from forming and steps that should also be followed on non-masking days.
Step 2: Little to no foundation makeup is best for mask wearing. We see those gorgeous eyes, so go ahead and make them pop with a bit of mascara, but leave the foundation wearing for no mask days.
Step 3: The Mask! So many choices these days. A disposable mask that could be replaced a few times a day would be great, but not our first choice for several reasons. Waste, we hate waste! While it would be great for optimal sanitation and keeping germs away, using 3 masks a day is a lot of landfill waste, so our second recommendation is a pack of soft washable masks with washable replacement filters. Wash before re-wearing. Choose a fresh, clean mask each day for optimal healthy non-maskne skin.
Step 4: At the end of the day cleanse face, and twice a week use a clay mud mask to (deep clean pores) remove dirt and bacteria to the next level then tone and moisturize. We also recommend a warm herbal facial steam or just place a warm wash cloth over clean skin for 10 minutes to loosen grime, always rinse face well after steam. Once finished use moisturizer to seal the barrier and hydrate skin.
Step 5: Drink water with lemon in the am, lots of PH correct water through the day and get a good nights sleep. Resting well helps us heal not only traumas to our skin but helps our mind re-set. Our skin needs a good peaceful sleep to regenerate.
