Masks have become another item of our outfits and as you have seen these last months the constant use of this new accessory, the heat and the rubbing it produces, can produce irritation on the ski of the face. Something inevitable as, like it or not, we have to wear a mask to protect ourselves and thus stop the spreading of this harmful virus.
If you are affected and the masks have produced skin harm, follow our advice to make it more bearable. If by chance your facial skin is in perfect condition, also follow our advice so it stays that way.
How does the mask affect the skin of the face?
One of the main problems of the use of masks is the lack of oxygenation of the face, the sweat and the rubbing on the areas with more pressure. Also, if we add to this that they have a rough finishing this promotes the appearance of acne, redness, dryness, and even dermatitis and desquamation.
How do I take care of my skin?
One of the most important steps is to cleanse the face before and after using the mask with a gentle cleanser that eliminates dirt, oil, sweat, or even makeup, although you should avoid makeup if you are among the people who are forced to use a mask for many hours a day. We recommend Micellar Water Gel from B-Calm, a gel formulated based on micelles that cleanses deeply without irritating the skin, without having to rub or rinse and respecting the pH. It immediately relieves sensations of stinging and itching and the skin is fresh, comforted, and supple.
We recommend using light hydrating creams, although also depending on the skin type. In this case the B-Calm line has the Fundamental Moisturising Cream in two textures: rich and light (depending on the skin type). This product stimulates the natural defence systems and reduces the susceptibility to irritation. It hydrates, soothes, and comforts thanks to its formulation based on an exclusive symbiotic compound: Skinbiome Repair, a prebiotic-probiotic association.
If your skin is already reddened because of the mask, apply the Correcting Moisturising Cream from B-Calm. It is an anti-erythema and anti-irritation hydrator. It reduces the number, size, and intensity of redness. It soothes, softens, and relieves, restoring the skin’s relief and comfort. It also contains green correcting pigments that skilfully neutralise redness.
If you have dry skin, at night apply more nourishing and repairing products, even the Multi-Regenerating Rose Hip Oil, a powerful regenerating, hydrating, nourishing, rejuvenating, and wound-healing treatment that will become an “essential”.
– Intensive care.
We need a product that immediately relieves in case of adverse reactions. For this, apply a small dose locally or globally, as many times as you wish, of the SOS Intensive Care Facial Balm from B-Calm that relieves and comforts. In just a few days this balm will regulate the mechanisms involved in the reddening and irritation. The skin will recover uniformity, smoothness, and tranquillity.
It has an immediate action, in less than 2 minutes it soothes the sensation of pruritus and stinging.
