Maskne, technically called acne mechanica, is a breakout caused by wearing a face mask or PPE. And, it is just one unfortunate fact of life these days! Although it’s been years since I suffered a breakout, maskne has made me feel like a teenager again… and not in a good way! If you are suffering a similar fate and are wondering how to reduce maskne, here are a few suggestions:
- Always start with clean skin
- Moisturizer reduces skin friction caused by a mask
- Wash masks frequently
- Tote disposable makeup wipes if you’ll be wearing a mask for extended time periods
- Skip heavy foundation when possible
- Remember to carry a clean, spare mask
- Exfoliate gently
- Choose a well-fitting mask, so you aren’t tempted to constantly adjust
Even with the most zealous preparations, however, maskne may still be an issue. Luckily, InstaNatural has a simple solution: Zinc Vitamin C Serum.
InstaNatural’s Zinc Vitamin C Serum contains several key ingredients that, when combined, battle excess oil and breakouts. For example, witch hazel soothes redness, and ginger calms inflammation.
But, unlike other treatments, which can be incredibly drying, InstaNatural’s Zinc Vitamin C Serum offers balance for both young and mature skin. This serum contains Vitamin C to support healthy collagen production and Hyaluronic Acid which hydrates skin deeply.
As part of a daily cleansing routing, this serum will keep skin looking refreshed, hydrated and healthy. Simply apply twice daily to clean, toned skin and follow with your favorite moisturizer (I have used InstaNatural’s Vitamin C Moisturizer for years).
This Zinc Vitamin C Serum is just the latest in a long line of must-have beauty products from InstaNatural. I first discovered the company in 2014 and have been a fan ever since! Not only do InstaNatural’s products really perform as promised, they are free from harmful ingredients such as parabens, sls/sles, mineral oil, formaldehyde releasers, synthetic dyes, petroleum, polyethylene glycol (PEGs), DEA/MEA/TEA, and unsafe preservatives. Instead, InstaNatural harnesses the power of botanicals, plus proven ingredients such as Vitamin C to create incredibly effective, but safe beauty products.
