Did you know there are more than 700 different types of bacteria in your mouth? With this reality, it’s no wonder people are getting acne from the extended use of face masks during the Covid-19 pandemic. Breathing inside a mask creates a warm environment that can cause this inflammatory skin condition.
At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, we recommend several steps to keep your skin blemish-free and provide additional assistance so you can look your very best!
- Cleanse your face twice a day, in the morning and evening. Clogged pores are caused by the sweat you develop under the mask. Harsh cleansers should be avoided.
- Your face may become dry because of the extra cleansing, so apply a moisturizer immediately after washing your face. At our Medical Spa, we recommend specially formulated moisturizing products designed for your individual skin type.
- Don’t wear makeup, as this added layer of coverage tends to clog your pores. Our oxygenating facials help treat acne and bring back the natural glow to your skin.
- Also, remember to wash your mask frequently. Many healthcare associations recommend a thorough cleaning after each use to remove excess oil and skin cells.
If all these best practices don’t work and you find yourself with a troublesome acne case, Dr. Daniel Daube has developed his Triphasic Program, specifically designed to treat and eliminate acne. However, if there is acne scarring, we have treatments to reduce those unsightly blemishes.
At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, our Medical Spa should be your first call when acne has taken a toll on your skin. We suggest you try and manage your acne as much as possible by following the suggestions above, but when you can’t achieve the results you’d like to see with your skin, scheduling an appointment with our Aesthetician will help.
