Who knew when we rang in 2020 that the face mask would be the must-have accessory of the year? Thanks to Covid-19 the new normal is to wear a face mask any time you have to be in a public setting. For many, this means hours each day spent behind a mask. While this is the best option at the moment, it could be wreaking havoc on your skin. For every adverse effect on your skin, Allergan Aesthetics has a solution. Here’s the best way to care for your skin in 2020.
Skin Sensitivity and Dryness
If you have naturally sensitive skin, wearing a mask against your face each day will most likely cause a reaction. Even for those without natural sensitivity, you may find that the mask makes your skin more sensitive. Dryness may also be an issue. Skin that is already dry can become irritated much easier. For both skin sensitivity and dryness, we recommend Replenish Hydrating Cream.
Wearing a mask each day has another side effect that can cause your skin major problems. It can trap irritants against your skin. It also sits against your skin and blocks your pores. Because of these reasons, you may find yourself with increased blemishes from wearing your mask. The best way to fight the effects of this is with a good cleanser. We recommend Purifying Foaming Wash. For sensitive skin, stick with the Facial Cleanser.
Irritation and Inflammation
You may not wear your mask to the point of irritation or inflammation, but for many, including those on the front lines in healthcare, months of mask-wearing for hours each day has left you with both of these conditions. If your skin has reached this point you need products that you can trust to help you prevent worse damage to your skin and restore your skin back to a healthy state. For irritation, we recommend TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream. If you have inflammation as well, we recommend you use TNS Recovery Complex.
Focus on the Eyes
With so much of your face being covered by your mask, your eyes become the star of the show. Take extra care to pamper the delicate skin around your eyes. Because this area is composed of a thinner layer of skin you want to use products specifically designed for the eyes. We recommend TNS Eye Repair, Instant Bright Eye Cream, and the Instant Bright Eye Mask.
What About Those Lashes
Now that the eyes are attracting all the attention, make sure this facial feature really shines. A great way to do that is with lush lashes but what do you do if you don’t naturally have those thick, dreamy lashes? Easy. You use Latisse. Latisse can give you those long, thick, dark lashes you’ve always wanted. Fuller lashes can give the eyes a larger appearance and make your eyes look more awake and expressive. As an added bonus, you don’t have to deal with false lashes every day.
It’s All About Routine
You can wear a face mask each and still maintain healthy skin. It all comes down to your skincare routine. If you are consistent in your routine and use the quality products we’ve recommended you will be amazed at how well your skin makes it through this pandemic season. If you have any specific concerns about your skin or have more questions, we’d be happy to consult with you and help you create a plan that works for you. We are here to help you look and feel your best.
