Breakouts caused by Masks?
let’s have a look at our recommended 3-step routine designed to remedy maskne or breakouts caused by wearing masks:
Step 1: Clementine Cleansing Balm. A fantastic product for removing blackheads (which are considered to be precursors to acne) and for a deep skin cleanse. The oils it contains have the ability to penetrate pores and dissolve all the residue inside (dead cells, dirt, pollution, oxidised sebum, spf or other skincare products). Remember to leave it on for 5-10 minutes so the formula can penetrate your pores and dissolve all the impurities, before gentle removing with your Twelve muslin cloth.
Step 2: Apply 3 or 4 drops of Ideal Rebalancing Level Serum. This particular serum contains Epilobium extract, which grows organically in the Alps. Both Epilobium and the polysaccharides in the formula are rich in certain antioxidants known to help kill off “bad” bacteria, whilst stimulating the growth of “good” bacteria – Thus keeping your skin’s microbiome in balance.
Step 3: Finally, remember that your skin’s barrier is hydrolipidic, meaning it contains both water and oil. This is why we recommend using a correctly formulated moisturiser, like Nutritive Repair Emulsion, together with a good facial oil to bring healing nutrients to the skin. If it feels like too much to do so during the day, remember to use Intelligent Frontier Facial Oil at night. Both products are high effective at calming, repairing and restoring skin, and whilst you may think that oil treatments are big acne no-no’s, our facial oil can balance out skin and strengthen it against external stressors like friction and bacteria.
