With the dawn of regular mask wearing comes another threat to your skin: mask-ne! Our team at RMA wears masks all day in the office to protect you and ourselves. Here are some of our team’s recommendations on how to keep your skin fresh, healthy, and unencumbered even when wearing a mask all day!
What We Recommend
Our Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Tina Ho, recommends a multi-purpose product that protects the skin from potential mask damage: “my favorite COVID-19 skincare product right now is Alastin Skin Restorative Complex. It is gentle enough for all skin types and works well as both an anti-aging agent and moisturizer. This skin product improves the appearance of wrinkle lines, supports new collagen and elastin, and even possesses antioxidants to protect the skin from further damage.”
The Alastin Skin Restorative Complex also comes highly recommended for preventing mask-induced skin irritation by Licensed Medical Aesthetician Charlot Byck, who says “it helps to strengthen the skin, improve elasticity and has antioxidants.” Charlot also recommends, “Elta MD UV Clear to protect the other areas of the face not covered by the mask.”
Aesthetic Nurse Brenda says her favorite product for combatting masks’ skin impact is “the Skin Better Peel Pads….they are great at taking off that extra layer of ‘mask’ and really clean out those pores!”
