As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states have made it a requirement to wear face masks whenever you leave your house.
Because of this, you might be noticing your skin is drier, redder, and having more breakouts than ever before.
Let’s discuss three important things to do to keep your skin glowing, during this pandemic.
1. Choose a cotton face mask.
Face masks made from woven cotton material are much less likely to rub against your skin and cause breakouts or irritation.
This also allows the opportunity to be able to wash your mask often, keeping it clean from sweat, oil, and dirt.
2. Keep your mask from rubbing.
A face mask should fit you properly for it to be effective.
That being said, you also need to be sure that your skin isn’t experiencing any friction from the mask.
By applying Vaseline, or a similar ointment on sensitive areas of your face, prone to irritation, you will protect your skin.
3. Complete a proper skin-care routine.
Be sure to wash your skin twice daily to ensure its clean before a mask goes on your face.
Choose a face wash that removes oil and dirt, but is still gentle enough on the skin to keep it nourished enough to endure a full day of mask-wearing. And as always, be sure to keep your skin moisturized.
During this pandemic, masks must be worn, so it is more important than ever to keep your skin feeling and looking healthy.
