If you’ve been wearing a mask in public, we see you, and we THANK YOU!
Keep up the good work keeping yourself and others safe! We know that wearing a mask can be hard on your skin causing acne, peeling, rashes and/or itchiness. That’s why we've gathered these helpful tips and tricks from our medical team to help!
Skip the makeup
Beneath a mask, makeup is more likely to clog your pores and lead to breakouts.
If makeup is necessary, try using products labeled “non-comedogenic."
Find a mask that fits
You’re more likely to adjust a poorly fitting mask.
If your mask feels too tight or slides around on your face it can irritate your skin. Be sure to clean your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer before making any adjustments.
Be selective with the material
Synthetic fabrics such as nylon, polyester, and rayon may irritate the skin and lead to breakouts.
Instead, look for masks made from cotton and silk fabrics. If you are using a disposable mask, remember they are only meant to be worn once.
Wash your cloth masks
Oils on your skin and particles that you breathe out collect on your mask.
Try and wash your mask after each use (or wear a fresh one each day). Hot water and your favorite face-wash are the way to go!
Follow a gentle skin care routine
Use a gentle cleanser to avoid more irritation, and apply moisturizer before and after wearing your mask.
Treat yourself with a mask your skin will love like our Hydrating Sheet Mask to restore and lock in moisture!
