One unfortunate side effect of wearing masks daily is MASKNE! The enclosed area of the mask against our skin creates a microenvironment of warm moisture which disrupts the oil and sweat glands and ultimately results in local skin inflammation.
Maskne can present itself as:
😷 Folliculitis (inflamed hair follicles)
😷 Chafing irritation
😷 Seborrheic or atopic dermatitis (scaly, red patches of skin)
😷 Heat rash
What to do?
🧼 Start with clean skin, we recommend the Epionce® Lytic Gel Cleanser or for those that are excessively oily, use the Purifying Wash. These are antimicrobial but won’t disrupt the skin barrier.
💧 Tone with the Epionce Purifying Toner for acne or oily skin, or Balancing Toner for rosacea. Toners help remove traces of dirt, oil or makeup without stripping the barrier.
✨ Treat and renew with a Lytic treatment product like the Epionce Lytic TX. They clean out the pores, remove excess scaling and rough oily buildups on congested skin, plus provide antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects.
🧴 Use a light moisturizer like the Epionce Renewal Lite Facial Lotion for a synergistic anti-inflammatory effect while also repairing and optimizing skin barrier function.
