Maskne Guide

My saviour from the extreme humidity, masks and maskne has really been rotating between hydrators, acids and retinoids the last 6 months. I took a two week break from retinoids not so long ago to test a barrier repair cream and the congestion just wouldn’t settle so I had to incorporate the retinoid back into my routine. ⁣

Using a retinoid a minimum of 3 times a week for me is a must. If you find your skin feeling sensitive you might want to reduce actives in your routine or it’s frequency just to make sure you are not unnecessarily aggravating your skin. I also find I am generally not going out as much which has helped keep the flare ups down. 👍

Anyone else experiencing more than the usual breakouts with masks? (maskne is definitely real for me!).
