Has your skin started to break out more often since the pandemic began? Though we love our masks for keeping us and those around us safe, mask wearing can sometimes aggravate our skin, causing acne, or “maskne,” as everybody has so cleverly termed it. If you’re a victim of maskne, cheer up, because a few simple tips can help keep you in the clear. Best of all, we’re offering 20% off Atagi Skin acne products this month so you can save while treating your complexion to some serious TLC.
What cleanser are you using these days? If you’re breaking out more frequently, it could be a sign it’s time to switch, even temporarily, to an acne-fighting cleanser formulated with salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or other acne-fighting ingredients that keep excess oil down and bacteria at bay. Exfoliating, acne-fighting cleansers like Atagi Skin’s BPO Acne Wash, which is 20% off this month) help speed cellular turnover to give your skin a fighting chance against the sweat and debris caused by mask wearing.
Apply Atagi Acne Gel proactively
We tend to pile on the acne gel when a blemish appears, but applying a thin coating before blemishes pop up is an effective way to prevent maskne from starting in the first place. When you think about how acne forms, it’s a buildup of clogged dirt, oil and bacteria, so anything you can do to prevent this buildup is a win! Our acne treatment gel is formulated with key ingredients including salicylic acid to reduce inflammation, speed cellular turnover and keep your skin cells happy, clear and free. Remember, more is not better. Just a thin layer will do the trick. If you start noticing dryness, simply reduce application to every other day.
Give your skin some light
This is a great time to treat your skin to the healing powers of BBL™ photofacials. BBL is a form of intense pulsed light (IPL) that can help heal blemishes by destroying bacteria, and stimulating cellular renewal for a brighter, more evenly-toned complexion with minimal downtime. They are also amazingly effective at banishing redness, brown spots, capillaries, age spots, freckles, and any other pigmentation issues, so there’s no downside to this simple treatment!
