How To Protect Your Face While Protecting Your Health?

Share:

Protective masks have become a new accessory to our daily routines. To prevent the spread of Covid-19, masks might be essential in some places, but it can do a number to our skin. SKINNEY Medspa is featured in an article on Skincare.com called “How to Prevent Acne From Face Masks.” The beauty experts share tips on how to protect your skin while protecting your health.

Putting A Stop to Mask-Related Irritation

Protective masks can directly rub the skin. This could cause irritation and inflammation, which can lead to a myriad of facial problems. Trapping your breath under a mask can trap in oil, sweat, and dirt. The professionals say there are ways to prevent skin issues from developing. It’s now more important than ever to cleanse and moisturize your skin before wearing protective masks. A hyaluronic acid is a great choice. Masks can create a humid environment for your skin. There are some ingredients that should be avoided. Heavy and comedogenic products can cause irritation.

Josie Holmes, an esthetician at SKINNEY Medspa in NYC, says skip the makeup, at least on the bottom half. “Wearing makeup can cause further blockage to the pores in the skin and can sometimes increase the amount of sweat produced,” she said.

Beauty experts say consider the type of fabric of the protective mask. Natural fibers, like cotton, can be gentle on the skin. These masks need to be washed after each use.

Treating Mask-Related Irritation

If protective masks have caused irritation to your face, professionals on Skincare.com weigh in on the best ways to treat it. If your skin is breaking out, think about trying a salicylic acid. It can remove leftover oils and dead cells from the skin, leaving the pores clean. For active breakouts, professionals say leave on a benzoyl peroxide spot treatment. This can be good for fighting bacteria and inflammation. It’s important to wash the area of skin that is infected. Use a gentle cleanser and ointment to help the skin get better.
