How to take care of your skin before and after wearing a face mask
Wallet.. keys.. phone…..Face mask!
There are many new routines we are adjusting to since the pandemic. Specifically, the addition of a face mask when leaving the house- a good way to keep yourself and others safe.
Overtime, face coverings tend to get itchy and bothersome, constantly needing adjustments, getting sweaty, and causing havoc to your skin.
If you’ve been having skin difficult throughout this pandemic, you’re not alone. Dermatologists have reported an increase of acne breakouts over recent months, although not all contributed to wearing masks. Skin issues tend to flare up during times of stress and change.
Wearing face masks, especially over time, may lead to irritation, redness, chafing, and breakouts. It’s more important than ever to give your skin some extra TLC. Here are some tips for keeping your skin happy and healthy!
Never forget the power of water! Remember hydration throughout the day, especially in the morning to cleanse your body. Drinking 8 glasses of water per day helps rid the body and skin of toxins.
Don’t forget to keep your skin hydrated too! The power of a good facial moisturizer will nourish dry spots and any chafing from long mask wear. The Aveda Tulasara Renew Morning Creme is “Yoga in a Jar”, instantly brightening your skin!
