Face masks are vital in keeping us protected during the pandemic. Though these masks are literal life savers, they are wreaking havoc for our skin. The enclosed masks build up with sweat, oil and bacteria making them a breeding place for acne and breakouts.

"Maskne is absolutely real. No questions asked. I wear two masks and sometimes a protective shield… [and] have myself experienced it and continue to experience it. Constant rubbing of the masks against our skin causes micro-tears, allowing easier entry for bacteria and dirt to clog up our pores"

Dr Mona Gohara, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the Yale School of Medicine

5 Ways To Combat Maskne

1. Destress Your Skin

Lockdown has been an extremely trying time for everyone. Taking time to release your skin from the daily stresses of everyday life is key in achieving clear and healthy skin. 

Give yourself a facial massage to calm face muscles, boost circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage. 

"A facial massage has relaxing effects, which indirectly might benefit your skin by lowering the stress and cortisol levels in your body.”

- Leading Dermatologist Dr Stefanie Williams and founder of the Eudelo clinic

2. Salicylic Acid

Our Pro Salicylic Blue Minerals Clarifying Blemish & Imperfections Exfoliator is specifically designed to target local blemishes and imperfections to help purify the skin and refine texture without ever drying it out, for clear, radiant skin. 

3. Deep Cleanse

Cleanse twice a day to slough away the impurities which build up under your mask during the day. The Blue Volcanic Stone Purifying & Antioxidising Cleansing Gel effortlessly eliminates excess oil, dirt and make up without leaving skin feeling over exposed.

4. Stay Hydrated

Moisturise regularly to replenish and balance water levels in your skin to protect your skin from irritants.

"I always tell my patients to opt for more lightweight water-based products underneath the mask... a lightweight moisturiser can also act as an additional protective barrier and prevent chafing. Ideally, you should [also] be using a mild and gentle exfoliator to ... support the absorption of your moisturiser."

- Dr Yong, Dermatologist, Singapore

Our Pro-Intense Hyaluronic Acid Illuminating Day Cream utilises hyaluronic acid to help the skin retain moisture. It penetrates deep into the skin, hydrates and works to instantly destress the complexion. 

5. Keep It Clean

Ensure you wash your face & mask regularly to minimise the build-up of oil and sweat.
