Masks and Skin care

Wearing a mask for extended periods of time during the day can create a harsh environment for the underlying skin. Increase temperatures, along with higher humidity around your nose and mouth can leave your skin more susceptible to breakouts, rashes, and irritation. It’s important to not only take short breaks during the day from wearing your mask (in a safe and open environment), but it’s also important to have a skin care routine to help keep your skin looking its best.

Use a Good Facial Cleanser

The moisture and air from your breath can carry a certain amount of bacteria, and under a mask this bacteria can collect on the surface of your skin around your mouth and nose. The moisture under your mask can also create an ideal environment for bacteria and skin fungus to grow if not cleaned properly on a daily basis. Having a good cleanser to wash your face with at the end of the day is a good way to wash away any such bacteria. It also protects your loved ones who you might want to kiss or cuddle up to at the end of a long workday.

Wash Behind Your Ears

Mother always use to say “don’t forget to wash behind your ears”, and that advice has found its value during the COVID pandemic. The masks we wear are often fitted around our ears and can sometimes irritate the skin back there. It can also lead to a build up of bacteria and residue if not washed properly. Be sure to wash behind your ears routinely to help protect the skin behind your ears and prevent any skin irritation.

Oily Skin

If you’re one of those people who have oily skin and are prone to breakouts, wearing a mask for long periods of time can be an issue for your acne. The heat generated under your mask can cause your skin to feel more oily than usual and irritate your skin. It may be more suitable for you to wear fabric masks that are gentle on the skin and may feel a bit more breathable. Your daily cleanser should also be suited for oily skin, and make sure to follow up with any regular acne treatment you may be using. Most importantly, give your skin plenty of time to breathe during the day away from the humidity and damp environment of your mask.
