The Maskne Breakout Banishers That Have Worked For Me

BY VICTORIA HALL

Who would have thought six months ago that a face mask would be the new staple in our lives? Trapping makeup, sweat and SPF they can result in ‘maskne’ across your cheeks and jawline, but our guide will help you banish maskne for good.

01

Drunk Elephant

E-Rase Milki Micellar Water, € 14,00

After wearing a mask on and off throughout the day, I like to give my skin a thorough cleanse when I get home. The aim is to get rid of all the sweat, makeup and sebum that has built-up, so I always start with a micellar water. A great one is Drunk Elephant’s debut micellar water. It’s formulated with ultra-mild micelles, which work to dissolve and lift away makeup and grime. I’m a great believer in double cleansing, so I follow with a balm cleanser.
