The past few months have been the ultimate rollercoaster ride, no thanks to COVID19! Lockdown measures are beginning to lift in the UK but, there is a new rule in place, now we have to wear a face mask or covering, which for many of us has had an impact on our skin. Maskne (mask acne) is a legitimate thing-it is the result of friction of a fabric against the skin resulting in an acne flare. Breathing into a tight space also causes moisture to be trapped underneath the fabric which gets worse with humidity, heat and exercise-accelerating the process. But don’t worry, we have your skincare solutions and with our range of skincare we everything you need to combat maskne. Buy now for 20% less - Shop MASKNE BUNDLES now.
Here at Creightons, we have selected our top picks to help tackle maskne breakouts:
In order to preventmaskne, hygiene is essential. We suggest using our H20 Boost Hot Cloth Cleanserwith lukewarm water before and after applying your mask. It is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Marine Algae extract to effectively remove any accumulated oils and impurities and gently lift away dead skin cells.
Another great product to effectively clean the skin, is our H2O Boost foaming gel wash. It’s super gentle as it’s SLES free, removing any impurities without stripping the skin. It also hydrates the skin as it contains Hyaluronic Acid.
Keeping your skin moisturised is key. Heat, sweat and friction from themask rubbing can cause irritation to the skin. We suggest applying our H2O BoostHyaluronic serum because of it’s soothing, moisturising and anti-inflammatory properties to tackle these issues.
Heat, sweat and friction from the mask rubbing can cause irritation to the skin. We suggest applying our Pure Blends Hydrating serum to soothe and moisturise. It’s also fragrance free so perfect for sensitive skin.
Mask on, mask off. Cleanse your face with our Pink Grapefruit face wash to avoid any build up of bacteria on the skin and encourage a fresh, healthy looking complexion.
To draw outany excess oil, dirt and impurities why not try our Pink Grapefruit face mask to leave the skin clarified and matte.
