Breaking Out Under Your Mask?
Is wearing your mask causing you to break out on your chin, jawline and neck? Why is this happening?
Our bodies naturally shed our dead skin but when you are wearing your mask, the dead layers of skin are trapped along with bacteria. Combine that with the hot weather and a little bit of sweat and under your mask and you have optimal conditions for breakouts.
So what can you do to soothe your skin? We have some easy and effective tips.
1. Remember not to be hard on yourself. Pimples are a normal thing for anyone with a face.
2. Be diligent with your nightly face cleansing to remove bacteria, debris and pollutants that may have accumulated throughout the day.
