While online retailers like ASOS and Pretty Little Thing have introduced varying lines of trendy masks, skincare brands like Dr Jart+ and Peach & Lily have introduced products to help combat ‘maskne’, acne and irritation from wearing a mask.
A tight and abrasive mask will further encourage acne since it mixes with oil and dirt.
The mask will intensify product delivery to your skin.
In addition, Hollmig suggests a standard moisturizer as it can protect it from mask friction, à la a runner’s chafing cream.
Try to arrange your usual beauty routine for days that you are indoors, on the days that you have to wear a mask use as little as possible.
