Who would've thought that wearing a mask would be a part of our everyday life? Whether for a day at the office or going out to the mall, masks have become the new norm. And while it has taken us all by surprise, the acne storm that followed is the real shocker!
Here are five tips you need to keep your skin clear, even while wearing a mask! You can thank me later.
#1 Cleanse Before Putting on Your Mask
You wash your underwear every day, right? So why wouldn't you wash your mask every day?
Throughout the day, bacteria from your mouth and the environment are collecting on your mask.
So, having a clean slate from the beginning is key! Make sure that your face is as clean as it can be to start your day. Our Radiant Cleansing Nectar is an exceptional product to cleanse your skin without stripping it of nutrients.
It’s specially designed to penetrate the skin to get rid of bacteria, oil, dirt, and lingering makeup.
Bonus Tip: Don't forget to moisturize. Your skin will go through a lot underneath that mask, and lasting nutrients will keep your skin healthy. That is why our Flawless Nourishment Cream is the perfect blend of moisturization and nutrients. Packed full of vitamins and minerals, this cream gives your skin a fighting chance!
#2 Choose a Size Up If Too Snug
The air trapped around your face under your mask isn’t quite as refreshing as the air on the other side. In other words, there is a complete sub-atmosphere underneath the mask that mimics a rainforest due to the constant heat and moisture of your mouth. This creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria to thrive and multiply.
When you wear a snug mask, you are pushing all of the bacteria and nastiness against your face for hours! Choose a mask that has adjustable straps and a clasp around the nose for a more secure fit. This will give you just enough space for comfort.
#3 Choose A Washable Mask
From the heavy-duty n95's to the fashion masks you get at the mall, the type of mask you wear makes a big difference. However, dermatologists agree that disposables should not be your everyday go-to. Disposable masks are a breeding ground for bacteria and germs, especially when worn for long periods.
Try a cotton mask that you can easily wash. This does not mean you have to sacrifice safety for comfort. Cloth alternatives can also be protective while providing more flexibility and less irritation.
#4 Make Sure Your Mask Has Adjustable Earloops
If you’ve been out and about during this mask-mandated time, you may have noticed that constantly wearing one can be a pain in the ears. Whether you’re dealing with friction behind your ears, or constant readjusting due to loose-ness, adjustable earloops are the answer.
One of the best ways to avoid discomfort when wearing a mask is to make sure that it fits well on your face. As mentioned above, adjustable ear loops can not only help you find the perfect fit for your face, it can also reduce discomfort (or snugness). If you don't already have one, look for a mask with adjustable earloops today. In the long run, it will make your mask-wearing days a little more pleasant.
