End. Mask. Skin. Chaos. The true benefits of dermal nutrients for your skin

Wearing a mask when out in public can throw a curveball at the best of homecare skin routines.

Ideally, our skin has ongoing homecare that maximizes hydration, sustained skin barrier repair, gives access to natural dermal nourishment, and a mindset that encourages daily detox functions.

The chaotic donning and removal of a mask creates vast swings in temperature, humidity, and the fabric/material can often rub off and absorb otherwise effective moisturizers, this is the formula for disaster.

Adopt a skincare routine that accomplishes these priorities and reapply a moisturizer as often as needed throughout the day to ramp up continued barrier function support.

Reinforcing our skin’s need for this can go a long way in stabilizing water levels which will make a huge difference in how our skin copes with heat. Heat can cause an increase in oil production. The worst combination for throwing our skin out of balance is the dehydration & heat combo. Our skin handles heat with much more ease if it is not also dehydrated. Summer mask-wearing is a double whammy when it comes to heat.

A few extra moments to reapply a lipid-rich moisturizer and waiting 5 min to reapply your mask will go a long way to end the wonky confusion our skin gets from mask-wearing.
