The pandemic has drastically changed the normal functioning of life. While social distancing, always sanitizing/ washing your hands and wearing a face mask are a few things you can do to stay safe during these trying times, there's no denying that it has taken a toll on our skin. Constantly washing hands leaves them dry and wearing a mask for long hours leads to maskne!
Here are some easy skincare tips to keep in mind as wearing a mask is as important as applying SPF daily.
Wearing a mask has become a part of our daily routine as it acts as a protective shield against the deadly virus. While wearing it for a quick trip to the grocery is normal, it's longer durations that cause a problem. A lot of people have started going back to work which means that they have to wear masks all throughout the day. If you're one of them, keep reading for skincare tips that you must follow.
Hailey Bieber revealed that double cleansing is the reason her skin remains acne-free and obviously, we're doing it too. Just washing your face daily isn't going to help as your face is constantly covered in mask and the heat trapped inside can cause serious skin woes. Once you remove your mask, make sure that you double cleanse so that no debris is left on your face to cause acne, inflammation or even allergies.
The key to keeping your skin happy and refreshed is a great moisturizer. Never skip on a moisturizer, even if makes you sweat through your mask. Invest in a gel-based moisturizer if your skin is really oily but do not skip on it.
Reinvigorate your skin with a facial mist! Every hour, just take off your mask, spray your face with a facial mist to instantly refresh and wake up tired skin. This will not only give your skin a tiny break from your face mask but will also keep it hydrated and supple.
We get it, you want to look flawless but girl, at what cost? Your skin is already going through so much. Ditch your full coverage foundations for BB creams or skin tints as they are quite lightweight, allowing your skin to breathe.
Keep weekends for chilling and skincare! Apply DIY face masks, sheet masks, mud packs; time to be a multi-masker! Based on your skin type, follow a skincare regimen and stick to it. A basic cleansing, toning and moisturising routine should never be skipped.
