In 2021, wearing face masks became the new norm. In 2022, let’s get to know why wearing a face mask effects our skin and how to prevent the dreaded maskne from wreaking havoc on our face! We provided our top four tips to protect yourself from Maskne, and they still definitely apply. However, if Maskne does strike, here are our favourite two advanced skin treatments the team at Skin Clinic Blyss and clients just love..
A quick refresher: Face masks often cause congested pores due to the warm, dark and damp environment created, which becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. The key to avoiding maskne is ensuring that you’re upholding your skincare routine and practising the highest level of hygiene when wearing a mask!
Our top tips: Wash your mask regularly; Rotate the use of multiple masks; Wash your hands before and after touching your mask; Cleanse your face morning and night; Use light face products beneath the mask; Book regular facials to rejuvenate and purify the skin.
#1 Facial to Treat Maskne – Cosmedix Benefactor Peel
The Benefit Peel from Cosmedix is a gentle, all-purpose treatment that resurfaces, corrects and protects with fruit enzymes and Vitamins A and C – a powerful antioxidant to neutralise irritation, and Salicylic Acid.
This peel is perfect for Maskne ridden skin as it works to stimulate cell renewal, strengthen capillaries, improve skin texture and promote a healthy, glowing complexion.
#2 Facial to Treat Maskne – BBL Photo Rejuvenation
BBL (BroadBand Light) is the world’s most powerful IPL (intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. With the broadest of wavelengths, the Scion BBL is able to effectively achieve significant skin improvements in the treatment of vascular skin conditions such as rosacea, redness and acne as well as uneven skin tone by selectively heating the upper layers of the skin and stimulating and regenerating the skins cells.
If you’re struggling with maskne, the BBL Photo Rejuvenation treatment will help you say goodbye to your breakouts! It works to calm and repair acneic skin by destroying bacteria and soothing inflammation. This facial also works to treat pigmentation, discolouration, redness and broken capillaries to completely rejuvenate the skin.
Important – What Not to Do in Isolation
There are a lot of great ways to pass the time when you’re stuck at home alone in isolation, but purchasing skincare from social media is not one of them! Although our beloved social platforms provide us with endless entertainment, it’s not always a space of professional opinions and recommendations.
If someone’s using a product that interests you, wait and ask your skin therapist whether it would be a fit for you. We don’t want to see you coming out of isolation in tears after a 6-second video swore by this “revolutionary” product. Stick to your routine during isolation and you’ll be GLOWING when it’s time to revisit your social calendar.
If you’re wanting to spice up your skincare routine, book a skin consultation with a member of our wonderful team and we can tailor a routine to achieve your skin goals.
