The best Maskne tips and treatments

“Keys, phone, wallet, mask” is the new checklist you need before leaving your home these days. The constant wearing of masks has also meant that there’s a new skincare concern we have to contend with: maskne. However, with every skin concern, we like to believe there is a skin solution.

Can Maskne affect me?

Maskne can be caused by something rubbing against the skin or heat, bacteria or dirt being trapped under your mask, so it can affect everyone regardless of your skin type or hormones. With the prolonged wearing of protective masks going nowhere for a while, there are changes you can make to your skincare routine to prevent and soothe maskne blemishes and marks.

Cleanse

If you sometime skip cleansing, this is the time to stop. Just as you should clean your mask after ever wear, you should also clean your face to help remove dirt, oil or makeup that could clog your pores.

Decléor Rosemary Black Clay Cleansing Gel combines rosemary essential oil and salicylic acid, known to deeply purify pores, to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and pores. Its gel-to-foam formula also helps to clear the skin of excess oil and leave skin feeling mattified.

For a cleansing and detoxifying maskne treatment, apply Decléor Rosemary Black Clay Mask once or twice a week and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Its 95% natural-origin formula is enriched with black clay to help absorb excess oil and deeply purify pores, without drying out your skin.

Hydrate

It’s not just your moisture levels that are affected by keeping your skin nourished and hydrated. When your skin is dehydrated, it can overproduce excess oil to compensate and cause breakouts. To keep your skin nourished, look for moisturisers that are packed with hydrating ingredients and vitamins. Choose lightweight formulas that don’t clog your pores too.

Rosemary White Clay Daily Care is formulated with 96% natural-origin ingredients and the anti-blemish efficacy of rosemary essential oils and salicylic acid. It provides instant hydration and helps to keep skin mattified even in hot and humid weather (it was tested in saunas!).

Our Antidote Serum combines a powerful blend of essential oils with hyaluronic acid – our favourite hydrating molecule that can soak up moisture like a sponge – in a formula to moisturise your skin and strengthen the skin’s barrier.

Protect

SPF is non-negotiable when you’re heading outside. choose lightweight, non-comedogenic formulas that don’t clog your pores.

Decléor Aloe Vera Sun Face Fluid’s ultra-light formula provides SPF 30 protection from the sun and UV exposure and nourishes and refreshes your skin with a formula enriched with aloe vera and botanical sesame oils.
