Covid-19 has changed life as we know it. Slowly, the world is adapting to the new restrictions set up to keep the virus in check and wearing face masks in public places is now a social norm. The masks help reduce the spread of the contagion, but they are rough on faces. They rub against skin, leading to irritation and inflammation, and they can trap oil, dirt and sweat on the skin, causing mask acne around your lips and on your chin.
Dealing with the mask
There is no avoiding it, the face mask is a new addition to today’s wardrobe. Uncomfortable as it is, it is one of the few lines of defense against the illness. Luckily, FRÉ has a great lineup of products to prevent and repair mask induced acne and irritation while you safeguard yourself against Covid-19.
PURIFY ME: hydrating facial cleanser
100% Organic Argan Oil: pure argan oil that protects and builds skin resilience
GLOW ME: tinted moisturizer with SPF15
DETOX ME: post-sweat clearing mask
PURIFY ME keeps your skin clean
Keeping your face clean is the best way to avoid mask breakouts. Wash with PURIFY ME to cleanse your face both before and immediately after using a mask. The jojoba beads in the cleanser gently exfoliate and purify your face, removing excess oils and dead skin cells, while aloe barbadensis leaf juice, also known as aloe vera, soothes and nourishes the skin. If you are using cloth masks, be sure to wash them at least once a day, and if you are using disposable masks, you will need to use a new one each day.
100% Organic Argan Oil protects and soothes your skin
Now that you washed up, apply a few drops of 100% Organic Argan Oil to your face, especially where the mask rubs the most, like on the bridge of your nose, your cheek bones, and under your chin. The argan oil will create a barrier, preventing friction and excess sweat.
When you finish using the mask and have cleansed your face, rub a few drops of 100% Organic Argan Oil onto your damp skin. The argan oil’s anti-sebum properties will level out your skin’s sebum production and its inflammatory properties will reduce any redness and irritation.
GLOW ME completes your look
You are ready to join people in a public space, your face is washed and the argan oil is defending your skin from your mask, but something is missing! Half your face is covered and half is exposed, you want SPF coverage and makeup, but nothing too heavy. GLOW ME is your solution. Lots of makeup causes excess sweating under the mask, which can lead to breakouts. GLOW ME’s lightweight formula moisturizes your skin while providing you with broad spectrum SPF15 and a universal tint that evens out skin tone.
DETOX ME extracts impurities from your skin
Wearing a mask every day means you need a deep clean to get rid of build up and prevent mask acne. It turns out that the solution to this is masks, you know, the other kind of mask—the skincare one! Depending on your skin type, use DETOX ME, FRE’s post-sweat clarifying mask, one to three times a week to draw out impurities from the top layers of the epidermis and to unclog pores. You can also use DETOX ME as a daily cleanser instead of, or in addition to PURIFY ME. Finally, if you do find yourself breaking out, you can use a small blob of DETOX ME as a spot treatment to clear your complexion.
Caring for your skin while wearing a face mask
Caring for your skin before and after wearing the mask is the only way to prevent blemishes and skin irritation. Remember to cleanse, exfoliate and soothe with PURIFY ME, 100% Organic Argan Oil, GLOW ME, and DETOX ME to keep your skin healthy.
