Maskne – A New Skin Enemy
To keep our complexion beautiful and young-looking, we continually wage war on our skin's enemies – whether it’s the environmental factors, premature aging, redness, dryness, or excess oiliness. Recently, regardless of our previous concerns, we’ve all come to have a common new enemy – maskne.
As masks have become mandatory in a lot of places, we’re witnessing a worsening of our existing skin conditions as well as the arrival of new ones. Masks tend to trap breathe moisture against the skin and cause fabric friction. For many of us, this has led to increased dullness, irritation, and maskne.
At a time like this, we must take our skincare routine even more seriously. The following tips will help you to fight against your new mask wearing-related skin conditions more effectively.
Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse
After a long day of mask-wearing, you must cleanse your skin with a cleanser that’s tough on impurities and gentle on the skin. If you have oily or Soo Boo Ji skin, the many hours you spend under a mask can clog your pores and lead to further oil buildup, blackheads, and whiteheads. If you have dry skin, you may experience increased dryness and tightness.Cleansing with the right formula is the first step in combating your skin’s newest enemies.
Seacret Deep Cleansing Facial Wash removes impurities without drying the skin, leaving it fresh and purified. As mask-wearing can decrease circulation, when you apply cleanser, gently massage your face, longer than usual, to give it the circulation boost it needs.
Exfoliate at least once a week
Many of us are guilty of skipping this step due to lack of time, forgetfulness, or laziness. After wearing a mask for long hours, day after day it’s crucial that you exfoliate to reduce pore congestion and refresh your skin’s texture. This step will also help prevent maskne.
Exfoliate at least once a week, twice if your skin isn’t sensitive. Seacret Purifying Peeling Milk with Apricot Seeds is a creamy skin-polishing facial scrub with natural apricot seeds for gentle yet deep exfoliation.
Mask-wearing is new territory for all of us unless you’re a surgeon. In this new place, one rule reigns – applying the right kind and the right amount of moisturizer. Too little and you are dry; too much and you’ll look shiny and can overload and irritate the skin. A comfortable amount of non-comedogenic moisture is essential to preventing maskne and other mask-induced problems.
Seacret Age Defying Refresh Vitamin Rich Moisturizer is an ultra-rich moisturizer that provides deep nourishment and helps reduce the signs of aging. It contains potent vitamin capsules that help fight against mask-related woes.
Care for your hands
At this point in the pandemic, you probably wash your hands a lot more frequently and thoroughly than before. Keeping your hands clean doesn’t only help prevent catching or spreading the virus, but it also helps prevent new skin issues. But most hand sanitizers dry and irritate the skin, leading to cracks and openings. Use Seacret Mud Therapy Hand Cream to keep your hands calm, soft, and balanced. Try to keep your hands off of your face to avoid passing bacteria and viruses from your hands to your face.
