With COVID-19 still ongoing, mask-wearing is here to stay for the foreseeable future. However, that doesn’t mean we have to be at the mercy of maskne (breakouts due to skin irritation caused by extended periods of wearing face masks when you’re outdoors).
To ensure that your skin stays clear and healthy, you’ll want to pay special attention to your skincare routine.Aside from cleansing your face with a cleanser daily, a weekly dose of rinse-off and sheet masks can provide extra TLC for your skin.
They can help to draw out excess impurities from your pores, balance out oil production, and even restore the pre-pandemic glow. Don’t wait, give these maskne-fighting masks a go now.
