Wearing a mask is a part of life as we are navigating our way through Covid 19. With extensive mask usage more people are noticing changes in their skin. Most people complain of acne, oily skin, and edema. Here are some great steps to address your mask skin
1. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF CLEAN SKIN!
Get facials and get them often. You don't need aggressive treatments. Focus on cleansing and repairing skin barrier. A European style facial will address cleansing and hydration but one bonus with this style facial is the great lymphatic massage. This will address edema caused by extensive mask wearing.
MASKD is now offering MASKD MONTHLY facial service which provides the power of clean skin, safe barrier repair, and a superb lymphatic massage. Head over to www.maskdinc.com for more information and booking.
2. CHANGE SKIN PRODUCTS
The changes of environment a mask creates on your skin, you will need a different arsenal of products to address fungal, humid, pressure from mask wearing. A favorite product clients have used is the DMK Actrol Powder. The light weight product and ease of use make this a top favorite. Its antibacterial and barrier repair properties provide a "shield" under your mask. Another introduction have been the DMK Enbioment Series . This amazing pro/prebiotic series have spores of bacteria effective to kill fungal acne. The product line is also very effective with rosacea and eczema conditions. Another favorite has been DMK Acu Mist , an antibacterial mister which provides a secondary level of protection.
3. CHANGE OUT
Clean and change out masks regularly. This will ensure a clean surface on your skin and can reduce dermatitis like conditions. Change out pillow sheets, wash cloths or skin brushes. Make sure you wash or change fabric-like products you use daily on our skin.
4. HOME CARE
If you struggle with mask skin then a portable high frequency machine and a professional grade product mask would be highly beneficial. Your esthetician can guide you on a machine choice and the correct mask for the skin condition appearing from mask wearing.
Adapt to the changes as quickly as your skin does
Skin is always in,
