Our skin is facing some new and uncertain times and as we navigate through the pandemic there needs to be some changes around the way we treat and look after our skin under our face masks.

Wearing our face masks outdoors means that there is little movement and air between our skin and the masks we wear, creating the perfect ground for bacteria to brew and develop.
Tied with the air that we breathe, our skin is then surviving in increased temperatures that is circulating warm air and an increased number of bacteria. This can mean that our skin can become irritated, inflamed, sore, contract infections or breakout.

To help keep the skin happy and balanced under the mask, we have created 4 top tips to help strengthen and protect the skin under masks.


1. Ventilate
When it is safe to do so, remove the mask from your face and allow for your skin to breathe, the more ventilation you allow, the calmer and happier your skin will be.

2. Simplify Your Routine
Whilst it is advised to wash your face as soon as you can once removing the mask, if your
skin is irritated then switching up your skincare routine to something simpler will help to
soothe your complexion. Opt for a gentle cleanser that is free from highly active ingredients.
Nuhanciam’s Gentle Cleansing Foam Clarifying Face Wash is soap free as to not further dry
out the skin but contains a naturally balanced complex that moisturises and hydrates the
skin. Applying a hydrating and moisture rich face cream will also help to seal and shield your
skin, the Evolve Daily Renewal Facial Cream attracts and increases moisture with non-
irritating yet resourceful ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and argan oil.

3. Pay attention to ingredients
To soothe irritation but also protect the skin, working with antioxidants, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and glutathione will contribute to the strengthening of your skin’s barrier.
Supplementing the Superfood LX Supplement that harnesses antioxidants and targets from the inside out will not only help to neutralise free radicals but will build a defence shield for your skin to fight off any irritation. Both ceramides and hyaluronic will inject moisture into the skin combatting any dryness and risk dry patches that can turn into open spots on the skin. The Nuhanciam Hydra Intense Hyaluronic Face Cream kills two birds with one stone as it contains aloe vera to soothe any irritation.

4. Salicylic Acid
If your skin is experiencing breakouts, ensure you are working bacteria busting ingredients into your skincare and apply a breakout-busting treatment gel on the areas of concern.
Salicylic acid or Kojic acid are two vital ingredients to keep breakouts at bay but to also treat any live spots on the skin. A gentle toner such as the Rosen Skincare Tropics Toner hydrates but also targets slight to severe breakouts. With Hyaluronic acid in tow, the toner doesn’t dry the skin but hydrates and tackles breakouts all at once. Compliment this with the Nuhanciam Blemish Eraser that targets skin corrections precisely and formulated with salicylic acid, will reduce and relieve the breakouts.
