Let’s face it, wearing face coverings for the best part of a year can play havoc with your skin. We’ve put together this quick guide to help you understand & combat breakouts, not forgetting to mention a little self-care never hurt nobody.
Mask-induced acne – known as “maskne” can lead to a number of skin conditions that can include:
• Acne can appear when your pores become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and dirt which causes pimples.
• Rosacea. If you already suffer from Rosacea wearing a mask may cause flare-ups. This can lead to pimples and redness.
• Dermatitis occurs when you are allergic or suffer with sensitive skin. It can result in a red rash, along with irritation and blisters.
Wearing masks regularly can sometimes increase sweating, and with that comes the risk of your skin becoming more oily, which can clog pores and cause blemishes.
Another way a cloth mask can cause breakouts is when you don't wash it and the cloth had a build up of dirt and bacteria. Rule this out as a cause by washing your mask with each use.
So with that said. How can OPATRA help you to reduce Maskne?
Wash your face regularly
A natural foaming cleanser for the face and neck, formulated with fruit-derived alpha and beta hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate, reduce oil, hydrate, and stimulate your own natural collagen production. This active cleanser will remove dead skin cells, pollutants, and excess sebum to help calm the skin, reduce outbreaks, and result in a softer gentle complexion.
The Opatra Dermisonic works by combining an effective ultrasonic sound wave massage with daily facial skin care products. The ultrasound and vibration massaging mechanism helps to ensure that the skin products penetrate deep into the cellular levels, giving skin a plump and hydrated texture. While the Dermisonic features 3 LED modes, the BLUE LED light targets bacterial sources that reside underneath the skin’s surface and contributes to acne. The light assists in the development of oxygen radicals, which helps to destroy this bacteria without causing any harm to healthy skin.
Take a step back from your makeup bag
Skip the makeup while you’re treating maskne. Beauty products such as foundation, concealer, and blush can clog your pores and prolong healing.
