What is maskne?
Face masks have become an essential part of living but regularly wearing one can have an unfortunate side-effect: mask-induced oilier skin and acne – MASKNE.
We know it’s a frustrating scenario and affects our everyday life, that’s why Watsons is here to help you fight the mask acne situation and soothe your skin from irritation.
How to treat and prevent maskne?
Mask acne, same as all acne, is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by red pimples on the skin, especially on the face. It occurs when your hair follicles clogged with oil and dead skin cells, which creates a perfect environment for bacterial growth and inflammation.
Therefore the key is to cleanse and calm your skin.
Cleanse & Calm
NARUKO TEA TREE PURIFYING CLAY MASK & CLEANSER IN 1
As a clay mask, a cleanser and an exfoliator, the product deeply cleanses the skin by ridding dead skin cells and excess oil, leaving it refreshed, clean, and free of acne. It consists of jojoba beads, menthol and Tea Tree oil to purify and balance the water and oil of the skin. You can also count on it to fights acne and reduces excess sebum production.
I applied the mask on my T-zone and around my mouth, where the mask-induced breakout took place. The clean and calming scent of tea tree is refreshing but not overwhelming. The mask glided on smoothly and creates a slightly tightening sense as it dries. I left the mask on for 5 minutes before washing it off with water. The jojoba beads are gentle yet effective in exfoliating my skin. My skin feels clean and velvety smooth without being overly tight or dry after using the cleanser.
Remember, proper cleansing is the first step and foundation for saying goodbye to maskne!
