The importance of wearing a mask cannot be understated, and some TLC will go a long way in caring for our skin while wearing masks. For people with sensitive skin, wearing a mask may be causing friction on the skin, potentially leading to irritation and redness.

Breathing and speaking under a face mask can create a warm and humid environment which is the perfect environment for congestion such as blemishes and blackheads. To help combat maskne, Skingredients has a range of products packed with ingredients to help relieve and soothe the skin.

Skingredients Sally Cleanse (€25)

Skingredients Sally Cleanse is a salicylic acid treatment cleanser for oily and spot-prone skin and is suitable for use once every three nights for powerful exfoliation. Sally Cleanse is formulated with two per cent salicylic acid, which dissolves oil and dead skin cells in our pores to help prevent congestion such as blackheads, whiteheads, lumps, and bumps. Sally packs a punch, so make sure that you use it as directed only! It can also use it as a spot-zapper by applying it directly to the spot for three minutes, and then removing it.

Skin Good Fats (€42) is your chubby little ceramide barrier balm that works by replenishing your skin’s essential fats, vitamins, and goodness to bring equilibrium to the skin. Good Fats contains ingredients such as Ceramide NP which is a skin native lipid that works to improve the skin’s barrier function along with Avena Sativa (oat) kernel extract, that is a clinically proven anti-irritant with antihistamine properties.

While wearing a mask, your skin may also require some intense soothing.

Skingredients Skin Veg (€42) is a lightweight, hydrating anti-ageing pre-serum, with veg and botanical extracts, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid. Veg is ideal as not all skin's benefit from having a thick layer of product on top of them with the humidity of a mask!

Your mask does not negate the need for SPF, as half of your face is still exposed to UV rays. Skin Shield SPF 50 (€42) is your skin's invisible parasol. It is a broad-spectrum mineral SPF moisturising lotion that shields the skin from sunlight and pollution and also protects it from blue light from phone and computer screens. Shield also works as a pre-makeup primer with a dewy finish and a peachy tint.
