Masks and Skin Problems - Stop the breakouts with Kindness
Is your skin breaking out in pimples since wearing a mask.
Have you noticed small whiteheads
Your pores are getting clogged due to the sebum and bacteria under the skin and the masks cause irritation
Masks trap moisture, sweat, oil and dirt close to our skin. Which results in blemishes such as acne, small bumps, inflamed hair follicles, irritation, pressure sores, broken blood vessels, contact dermatitis and rosacea.
Because the masks tend to move and we move the mask to eat or take a drink so any friction can cause irritation as well as we are continually touching our faces to adjust them, leaving behind dirt or other irritants on our skin.
Evan the simple act of breathing is a complication. “When we breathe or talk into the masks, we increase moisture as well as breathing out carbon dioxide, this can result in an overgrowth of bacteria, which can create acne, inflamed hair follicles and a flare-up of rosacea.
Stop the breakouts with kindness
To avoid blemishes, you need to alter your skin-care routine and consider what kind of mask you are wearing.
Change your Skin Care Routine to prevent breakouts.
Clean your skin with a gentle cleanser.
Use a Clay Mask,even better with the mineral Zinc (anti Inflammatory)
Use a Toner to keep your skin hydrated
Use a light moisturizer serum with anti inflammatory ingredients to create a protective barrier for your face even better if it contains vitamin B to help support the skin surface.
Avoid wearing makeup, which can spoil the mask and further clog your skin.
Clean your mask,do not allow dirt and bacteria to build up on a mask. Use a gentle detergent to clean your mask and wash it in the hottest water possible, even add hydrogen peroxide or Aqua Oxigenada for that extra boost of clean.
