Beautiful skin despite mouthguard in the Corona period

The mask for the mouth and nose has long since become our constant companion and obligation during the pandemic. It is not uncommon for this to lead to stressful skin problems .

The friction of the mouthguard , for example by speaking or moving , can cause irritation, which is noticeable through itching, redness and inflammation . Another reason is the microclimate that develops under the protective masks, as this is far too humid for our skin.

The skin gets out of balance because the skin barrier and skin functions are weakened . This is why acute pimples and reddening of the skin can very often occur after wearing a face mask. The resulting moist microclimate can also lead to dry skin .
Dry skin tends to be even more dry and oily skin is more prone to blemishes.

What can you do?

Tips for wearing a mask to protect your skin:

  1. Lots of fresh air is important for your skin. Try to take off the mouthguard from time to time.
  2. Try not to wear makeup under the mask. Emphasize your eyes.
  3. Change or wash the mask regularly.
