Got maskne? A simple regimen to restore balance

Have you noticed your skin acting up around your chin and jawline? You are not alone.

Unfortunately, wearing a tightly bound mask for an extended period of time creates a humid bacteria-loving environment. The result is congestion and irritated skin. #maskne

It is a bummer to deal with, but it doesn't have to be the new norm. Take a big breath of relief as #cosmedix has our skin's best interest at heart.

Read on to discover four products that can turn this ship around and have you sailing back into skin-bliss harbor.

Simplify. Simplify. Simplify. Sometimes when we go into "fix it" mode we create more problems. Less is more.

It's time to get back to the basics. If you do too much you won't be able to troubleshoot what is working for you (or not working for you).

What your skin needs essentially, is to find balance. This happens with gentle cleansing, hydration and a targeted serum.


Cleansing 2x's a day is important. Especially after a long day in your mask. The key is to not skimp on the cleansing step and view it as a treatment. Thoroughly massage the cleanser into your skin for a few minutes. Making sure to get along the jawline and neck.

Keep in mind maskne is temporary. Your skin will rebalance.

When the skin is irritated, it can add to stress levels. Try to stay calm and refrain from touching your face with your hands throughout the day. This will only prolong the problem and keep you thinking about it. The good news is it is temporary. Begin with creating a balanced simple regimen, then see what other areas of your life you can simplify.

Everything is connected!

A holistic perspective for skin balance includes following a simple alkaline rich and hydrating diet, plus practicing stress reducing activities.

Most importantly be gentle with your skin and yourself. You deserve to feel good in your skin, especially now.
