Your New Saviours 😇

Disclaimer - Skin tips aren't just for girls, if you're a boy and want pimple-free skin - read on!
#1 - What Mask is Best? 😷
Step one in avoiding Mask-ne, understanding what mask you should be wearing. The best masks are cotton or cloth ones, though these will need regular washing.
If you don't like the hassle of washing your mask daily, disposable masks are fine. The issue occurs when you don't clean your mask, and allow dirt to remain trapped inside, which in turn is pressed against your face throughout the day. Not a good look.
Bonus Tip For Makeup Users; don't wear foundation under your mask! It'll clog your pores even more, try a tinted moisturizer instead.
#2 - Create A Barrier 🤩
Defend your face! A great way to do this is a moisturizer barrier cream. Okay, yes this sounds overly complicated - we know. It makes perfect sense though. Simply put, it's a moisturizer that creates a barrier on your face, stopping clogged pores and preventing acne & pimples.

Be careful though, this can get a little sticky 😅
