These days, we’re all encouraged to wear face masks every time we step outside. But did you know that frequent use of cloth face masks can actually cause your skin to get irritated or dry? The friction and humidity from wearing these masks also eventually lead to redness, sensitivity, and clogged pores. So a skincare routine to prevent these is a must. Products rich in ceramides, squalene, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid are your best bet at a time like this, said Dr. Erum Ilyas in an interview with Fox News. With that in mind, here are the skincare items you need to use after wearing a face mask.
After every sojourn into the great outdoors, you need to take a bath immediately. Then, proceed with your skincare routine. Start off with a gentle cleanser to wash your face. Gentle cleansers will remove impurities without stripping it of moisture. Since they’re mild, they won’t aggravate any skin irritation that you’re experiencing. For this, try the Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Foam, the AHC Peony Bright Deep Cleansing Foam, and the Kew Organics Sensitive Skin Rescue Cleanser.
