Alas. As if normal, everyday skincare wasn’t complicated already! We are now challenged with additional steps and precautions to our daily routines.
The basics: Of course, make sure to wash your hands often and REFRAIN from touching your face. Personally, I’ve always had a hard time not touching my face. Now more than ever, it is incredibly important not to – even if you’ve been using hand sanitizer. 🙂
Tip #1: AVOID wearing makeup under your mask.
If you wear a full face of make-up often, this tip may seem outrageous! But the less makeup you’re wearing on a daily basis, the cleaner your masks will remain. Your pores already can’t breath – adding makeup underneath is not beneficial.
Tip #2: Wear a clean mask daily.
This can be difficult! I’ve lost a few masks within these past months – it’s too easy to find one on the floor of your car and just throw it on! Don’t. The dirt and grime on your old mask will rub against your face straight in to your pores – causing mask-ne.
Tip #3: Keep face wipes in your purse and car
If you’re out running errands all day (taking your mask on and off) it is unrealistic to wash your face EVERY TIME you take your mask off. However, if you have face wipes handy – this extra step will help maintain a clean face throughout the day (until you’re home and actually able to do a deep clean).
