Wearing face masks over the past year has become the new-normal, however it has uncovered a new problem, mask related acne.
This type of breakout activity is caused by friction and trapping warm air and is the perfect environment for bacteria to flourish. These bacterial imbalances can promote acne and rosacea flare-ups.
Some basic hygiene such as wearing a clean face mask every day, sanitising your phone and changing your pillowcases regularly will help, however feeding the skin from the inside with good nutrition and supplements will turbocharge your topical home care routine.
I love Skin Omegas+, they are recommended for overall skin health and hydration so great for dry skin conditions. However many of our clients have been using this Skin Omega+ to help with sore, sensitised skin associated with Maskne. Skin Omegas+ are an expertly calibrated Omega 3 supplement combined with Omega 6 fatty acids and vitamin A to create a specialised, sustainable skin-glowing formula.
Omega-3 fatty acids play important roles in brain function, normal growth and development, and inflammation. Deficiencies have been linked to a variety of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, some cancers, mood disorders, arthritis, and more. The reduction in inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis and acne breakouts has been a massive self esteem boost to many or our clients struggling with skin conditions they have never had to worry about before.
Wearing a mask can be tricky and at times just plain annoying, but for now its something we have to live with, when it comes to stopping the spread of COVID-19, a mask is your first line of defence.
