“Maskne” is a term used to describe acne, breakouts and irritation caused by the wearing of protective masks for a prolonged period of time. Primarily located on the lower portion of the face (where a mask covers), the mask-acne develops as a result of moisture, friction, and trapped bacteria.
How To Minimise Maskne
Find Your Skincare Routine
Changing skincare routines too drastically or too frequently can cause unwelcome reactions and irritations.
Find the perfect routine for your skin type and skin concerns and keep it consistent for balanced and happy skin.
A thorough cleansing – at both morning and night – is the ideal way to consistently clarify the skin.
While gently cleansing removes impurities, it should also nourish with calming ingredients for soft, smooth and comfortable skin.
Choose the right cleanser for you: a cleansing balm to remove makeup, a crème cleanser for dry skin, a foaming cleanser for oily skin, or a gel formula targeted to purifying pores.
Detoxify and Purify
A purifying and detoxifying clay mask is the perfect solution for drawing out built-up impurities and ridding the skin of accumulated toxins and debris.
We recommend using the NightWearPlus 3-Minute Detox Mask twice a week for skin that looks clarified, revived and refreshed.
Target bacteria-catching pores with products designed to minimise their appearance.
We recommend the Nutritious Micro-Algae Pore Minimizing Shake Tonic which helps to support the natural balance of skin to control excess oil.
Or opt for the Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher; a non-acnegenic formula which targets the look of pores, uneven skin texture, flakiness and roughness.
Choose a moisturiser with an oil-free, lightweight formula to let skin breathe whilst controlling oil, minimising shine and reducing the look of pores.
Our DayWear Matte Gel Crème delivers fresh hydration to the skin for a soft and smooth feel with a healthy matte finish.
Our Revitalizing Supreme Light+ Oil-Free Crème is an ultra-light, ultra-soft, multi-action formula which targets all key signs of aging but won’t clog pores.
