Make-Up and Mask-Up


It can be distressing to start seeing spots appearing on your face again, but you need to have patience with your skin. Heat and humidity can exacerbate acne, so during our hot summer months, higher temperatures will increase your sebum production, which can cause blemishes and acne.
 
 
Cleanse: You have mastered the hand washing routine, now it’s time for your face to get in on the action. Make sure you are thoroughly cleansing your skin just before you put on your mask and repeating the process at the end of each day using your favourite cleansing product. Moisturise: Even if you have oily acne prone skin, a lightweight moisturiser is key to keeping your skin hydrated. With a mask rubbing against your skin, your skins pH level needs to remain balanced and healthy.

Night treatment: Apply a lightweight moisturiser at night after cleansing. If your skin is feeling a bit tight, which could be a sign of dehydration, then apply a more nourishing night cream.

Spot treatment: For a spot treatment reach out for a product such as BioNike Acteen Quick Pen. If you have oily and acne-prone skin, use a face wash with salicylic acid twice a day to keep sebum production under control and prevent pimples. Treat your skin with TLC. A consistent acne regime is important to ensure that you are combatting future breakouts and treating the existing ones. Remember to wash or change your mask regularly.

 

To get “smudge-proof” foundation is essential, therefore a little extra attention needs to be paid to primers, setting powders and setting sprays.
 

TIP 1: PRIMER

Primers help your make-up application last a lot longer by acting as a grip for your make-up to adhere to.

TIP 4: SETTING POWDER

Set your make-up by applying a fine loose powder in a dabbing motion over the foundation most at risk, which is of course under the mask.

TIP 2: CONCEALER

When applying a concealer, rather dab and blend the concealer onto skin with a blending sponge for longevity of wear.

TIP 5: SETTING SPRAY

Finish off your make-up with a sweat-resistant matte setting spray to lock all products in.

TIP 3: FOUNDATION

Make use of a hydrating mattifying foundation for “smudge-proof” make-up that won’t dry out skin.
