Face Care for Mask Wear
Have you noticed any changes to your skin lately from having to wear your mask for extended periods of time? You may notice acne when you never had it before or dryness from lack of hydration to your skin. The Spa at Fearrington can certainly help you with a routine to get your skin back on track.
First and foremost – make sure that you are cleaning and sanitizing your mask on a daily basis. You need to have a mask that is made of breathable, skin friendly material. Ensure that your mask fits your face correctly – not too tight. All of this helps with your skincare. Here are some products that will help with your daily routine to help with your skincare needs. First – you will need to thoroughly clean your skin after you take your mask off. Our recommendation is to start with Superfood CICA Calm Cleansing Foam Cleanser. I know that sounds like a mouth full but this calming cleanser is perfect for sensitive skin. This helps to cleanse sooth and bring your skin back into balance. This cleanser is packed with superfoods such as CICA, agave, Kefir and Green Tea seed oil that will be super hydrating and comforting while it gently cleanses everyday dirt and grime without drying.
Second – our fruit infused favorite exfoliator is Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel. This ultra nourishing, non-abrasive exfoliator deeply purifies and softens dull skin while no scrubbing is needed. You skin is left feeling soft, revitalized and radiant. Just apply on your clean skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes then wash off.
Third – applying a mask twice a week helps to balance your skin while purifying. We recommend Elemis Superfood Berry Boost Mask. This mask is packed with Nordic Bilberry, Blackcurrant and Grape Seed extract that help mattifies, purifies and balances your skin from impurities for a fresh looking, clear, healthy complexion. You only need 10 minutes then remove.
Fourth – This next product is an innovative addition to your routine. The Elemis Superfood CICA Calm Booster is a concentrated multivitamin that is designed to help your skin become balanced and maintain healthiness. All you need is 2-3 drops of this superfood as it instantly absorbs into your skin giving you a nourishing and hydrating boost.
Lastly – for those of you are experiencing acne from your mask, we recommend in addition to use Elemis S.O.S Emergency Cream. This is an intensive moisturizer that can be used as a spot corrector. This is an effective formula with lavender, willow, Centella Asiatic and Myrrh which helps to shield your skin from any harmful effects of environmental stresses of your day. You just apply and leave it on your skin when needed.
Hopefully this routine will help you feel better about your skin changes that are occurring from daily mask wear.
