Combating Maskne in the New Year

We’re all for wearing masks to help curb the spread of COVID-19, but there’s one thing we have no room for from this protective barrier, and that is ‘maskne’. 

You know what we’re talking about. Those pesky flare-ups that are popping up everywhere right under your face mask. While it’s nice the breakouts can be hidden beneath it, we’d honestly rather not have maskne in the first place. 

Lucky for everyone, we have exactly what your skin needs to reduce yours and prevent it from coming back!

Balance Your Skin

Because of daily mask-wearing, your skin can collect a lot of dirt and bacteria that can clog your pores and cause breakouts. Removing those dry and dull layers of your skin and balancing it ensures your pores are clear and unblocked, allowing your skin to heal and prevent future blemishes. 

To bring your skin back to a healthy balance, our Acne & Oil Control will minimize blemishes and clear your skin right up. Its formula combines both glycolic acid and salicylic acid to get rid of your dry and dull surface to clear your pores and prevent future breakouts. 

Another balancing Skin Authority product is the Resurfacing Accelerator, which is a leave-on exfoliator that uses the glycolic acid, an AHA, to gently reveal brighter, clearer, and firmer skin. It will also make way for your other skin care products to absorb into your skin for maximum effectiveness. 

Skin Authority Instant Perfection Peel Pads not only preps your skin for flawless makeup application, but it also reveals skin that is tighter and brighter that’s ready for the world on its own. 

Fight Inflammation

You’re probably seeing redness and feeling discomfort in your unwanted ‘maskne’, which means there’s inflammation involved. To reduce the appearance of it, you’ll want products to soothe your skin and giving it what it needs to heal. 

The Beauty Infusion™ Probiotics for Clarifying uses healthy bacteria to help bring back clarity and a healthy pH while reducing inflammation and other blemishes. Healthy bacteria are needed to fight those bacteria that have been transported from your mask to your skin for hours at a time. 

The Skin Authority VitaD Fortified™ Topical Elixir is a vitamin-rich formula that provides antioxidant-rich protection against aggressors that get caught up in your mask while also brightening and firming your skin. 

Of course, our Calming Mask is a must-have as it does just that: calms your skin. This mask absorbs excess oil, sweat, sebum, and more in your pores while rebalancing and calming your skin from the inside out. It can be used as all over or simply as a spot treatment on your face mask area to give a little extra attention. 

Our amazing PPE Relief Cream soothes irritation caused specifically by wearing face masks and gloves. Using any PPE equipment can cause excess irritation, sweating, and friction, and this cream can help it right out. 

So which of these products is right for you? Well, everybody’s skin has different needs, and our Skin Coaches are here to help you customize your routine to get your glowing skin brighter and clearer. A perfect skin care routine would be to layer products lightest to heaviest – for example: 

  1. Acne & Oil Control
