While the mask helps to protect us, it also puts our skin to the test. Depending on our skin type, it sometimes leads to the appearance of redness, pimples and microcysts. The skin can be dehydrated or irritated.
Here are a few tips on how to solve these problems.
What are the effects of the mask on our skin?
Wearing the mask creates heat and moisture on our skin, which is confined and tends to suffocate. Result: pimples and/or redness may appear on the cheeks and chin. In addition, rubbing the mask on our skin can cause irritation.
Cleanse your skin
Before putting your mask on your nose, you should gently cleanse your skin. For this, use our Micellar Water, which eliminates impurities and leaves your skin soft and fresh. Repeat the operation also in the evening in order to rid your skin of impurities accumulated during the day (pollution, sweat…).
Moisturize your skin
After cleansing your skin, moisturize it. The application of a care product will protect your skin from rubbing with the mask and thus from potential irritations. Apply one of our Face Creams morning and evening. If wearing the mask encourages the appearance of pimples, opt for a lighter texture such as our Shea Day Lotion or our Shea Anti-Aging Day Lotion.
Once a week, apply a mask to your face. Problems of tightness, redness? Apply our Shea Hydra Mask which will bring suppleness and softness to your skin. Appearance of pimples? Oily skin? Succumb to our Shea Radiance Mask. Thanks to the combination of Shea Butter and White Clay, your skin will be soft and purified.
Concerning make-up, it is better to limit it or even take a break and let your skin breathe. If you wish to apply make-up, prefer light textures such as a BB or CC cream for example or a simple bronzing powder for a healthy glow effect.
