Mask-ne Relief

Mask-ne Relief

Dealing with skin irritation and breakouts under a mask. 

Wearing a mask may be our new normal, but skin problems associated with them don't have to be. When you wear a mask for long periods of time throughout the day, your skin is subjected to friction, or movement of the mask on your skin, and wetness from condensation buildup as a result of sweat and the air we exhale. 

As a result, the skin can develop acne mechanica, dermatitis, or rosacea -- all of which can be tough to beat. Adding an anti-inflammatory or redness-reducing serum can help mute the impact of inflammatory triggers. Tea tree is another beneficial ingredient that has both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory skin support, and can help reduce breakouts. 

Many of us are experiencing stubborn skin bumps that don't seem to go away. These frustrating little blemishes called Millia are a combination of sweat, dead skin and bacteria. Prevent these tiny nodules with routine glycolic or salicylic acid exfoliation. Book an extraction facial with your aesthetician to address existing ones. She has the tools needed to remove them safely without scarring or bruising your skin. 

Combining mask issues with the inflammatory response of stress hormones, like cortisol, also encourages skin problems. Take some time out of each day to recharge. We suggest putting away the phone, sitting in a calm place, and take time to just breathe and decompress.
