Refresh Your Mask Routine

July – Dec 2021 Skin Talks (5)

Your skin is a warrior. As we enter into year three of mask wearing (!!), it may be working overtime to combat a compromised moisture barrier, maskne + irritation, inflammation + the likes.

Our Holistic Estheticians chime in with their tips for pre and post mask-wearing for a healthy barrier + a maskne-free complexion.

MINDFUL MASKING

01 / GO MAKEUP-FREE

Humidity levels under your mask have the ability to increase skin’s sebum production, which can lead to clogged pores + breakouts. So, we recommend keeping nose-to-chin a skincare-only zone! Focus your under-the-mask skincare on moisture-pumping + soothing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, turmeric, sandalwood + lavender.

Try: Berlin Skin’s Sandalwood Face Cream

 

02 / REFRESH + RESET

Planning to wear your mask for long periods of time? Plan ahead and stock up on quick, antiseptic and refreshing tools to keep breakouts at bay. Mid-mask wear, wipe or spritz away any built-up, sweat, oils and bacteria with anti-bacteria-zapping ingredients, like willow bark, sugarcane and rosemary.

Try: Ursa Major Face Wipes or Wildcare Rosemary + Bay Hydrosol

 

03 / GO DEEPER

A post-mask deep cleanse (yes, as soon as you get home) can truly help stop maskne in its tracks. Try double cleansing after a long day in your mask. Begin with a soothing oil cleanser by massaging into dry skin + gently wiping off with a warm towel. Follow with a gentle clarifying cleanser that not only clears away blemish-causing impurities, but also reinforces a strong moisture barrier for rebalanced skin.

Try: Botnia’s Balancing Oil Cleanser (first cleanse) + Tata Harper’s Clarifying Cleanser (for a second clarifying cleanse)
