3 Ways to treat and prevent "Maskne" Skin
The new norm of pandemic requires us to wear face masks for whole day long. When we breathe or talk, our face mask traps hot air and creates a warm, humid environment beneath the mask — which is an ideal place for yeast, bacteria, and other flora to grow. All these bacterial imbalances cause acne and irritation, hence lead to skin problems and weakening our skin barrier. To alleviate "Maskne", follow the 3 steps below!
1)Change a new mask every 4-6 hours
While our skin is covered by a mask all day long, excessive sebum secretion is the result of hot and humid air under the mask. It could promote growth of bacteria on skin and clog pores, resulting in blackheads and pimples. To alleviate, change your face mask every 4-6 hours, and remember to keep hands clean before putting on a new face mask. Before wearing a new mask, we could spray or apply Kiehl's Calendula Herbal-Extract Alcohol-Free Toner to clean our face, it hydrates and cools our face, balances water- oil levels, and reduces skin redness and irritation. For a better chilling effect, we could put the Calendula toner in the fridge before using it.

2) Cleanse your face
After home and taking the mask off, clean your face with Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash to let your skin "breathe". Oil, dead skin cells, and traces of dirt, could be completely removed by the rich foam of the face cleanser. Meanwhile, this gentle cleanser is soap-free without added-alcohol, Sulfate and Paraben, it soothes skin, maintains barrier function and alleviates oily and acne prone skin problems without causing irritation.
Toner could act as "the 2nd Cleanser" to our skin. Gently apply Kiehl's Calendula Herbal-Extract Alcohol-Free Toner on skin after cleanser. The calendula extract could calm and hydrate irritated skin, improve blemishes, skin tone, and skin texture.

3) "Toner-Masking" problem areas
The weather in Hong Kong is unstable. With masks on, it is hard to adapt to the changing weather, skin problems like blemish and acne pop out, and acne scars occur if we do not have proper treatment. To avoid "maskne" related skin problems, try "toner masking": moist cotton pads with Kiehl's Calendula Herbal-Extract Alcohol-Free Toner and apply on targeted areas. Keep "toner masking" twice a day for a few days, redness is visibly reduced, and acne are alleviated. Great Burdock extract and Allantoin in the Toner could soothe and reduce inflammation.
