Q. What about “maskne”—mask-induced breakouts?
A. Treat the breakouts with salicylic acid to gently exfoliate your skin and clear up clogged pores.
Try: Anti-Blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is a powerful blemish-fighting treatment. Spot apply to troubled areas twice a day.
Q. Now that masks are part of our daily lives, any other tips?
A. I recommend cleansing, exfoliating, and strengthening your skin with the right “mask friendly” regimen for your skin type. Start by deeply purifying your skin with a gentle cleanser twice a day, then follow with a gentle exfoliator to remove debris and dead skin cells. Strengthen your skin with barrier-building hydration. Also, don’t forget your sunscreen.
Try: Liquid Facial Soap, a mild cleanser, and Clarifying Lotion, a liquid exfoliator that’s gentle enough to use twice a day. Be sure to choose the right formula of each one for your skin type: dry, oily, or combination.
