'Maskne' is a form of acne that can develop from mask-wearing. It's important to clean your cloth-mask regularly. We also suggest the following steps to protect your skin while wearing a mask:

Ensure your skin is clean and bacteria-free by cleansing both AM & PM. Even if you're not using makeup cleaning your skin is a must, especially when wearing a mask.
Wearing a mask throughout the day can cause excessive sweating and bacteria buildup. Gently and efficiently cleanse your skin with the Foaming Facial Wash. If you use makeup and/or mineral sunscreen we recommend using the Facial Cleanser & Makeup Remover first.
HGO Tip: Wash your face before and after wearing a mask to prevent bacteria buildup.
Spot Treatment is the newest addition to the Honey Girl family and a 'must-have' in helping with maskne! This super convenient roll-on treatment helps treat acne and calm the look of redness and irritation. Very gentle on the skin, Spot Treatment can be applied several times a day, to instantly help with bacteria buildup.
HGO Tip: It's easy to keep Spot Treatment on hand for easy application throughout the day. Small enough to go in your purse or backpack. We recommend getting a 3-pack + you automatically save 10%.
It's always important to keep your skin hydrated. When frequently cleansing the skin and wearing a mask for prolonged time, skin can start to feel dry. Facial Toner gives instant hydration while it also helps brighten, balance, and tone the skin.
HGO Tip: Keep toner in the fridge for an instant cooling effect on the skin during hot summer months.
Finish your skincare routine with a thin layer of Super Skin Food. This is our most healing cream and it helps soothe and moisturize while creating a repairing barrier.
The high level of organic beeswax in the Super Skin Food will not only help soften and hydrate your skin, it creates a long-lasting protecting coating. Beeswax is also anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and an antioxidant. This miracle-ingredients is your skin's best friend while wearing a mask.
HGO Tip: Apply when skin is still moist from toner. It helps spread the product and you use less product. Super Skin Food is ultra-concentrated, and just a tiny bit goes a long way!
Treat & Soothe
Taking care of your skin is an important step in your skincare routine. It can also be a way to slow down, decompress, and give yourself some much-needed relaxation during these stressful mask-wearing-times.
Give your skin some extra pampering 1-2 times per week with the Rejuvenating Mask. It mildly exfoliates and draws impurities out from the deepest levels of your skin. Helping to reduce blemishes while tightening, brightening, and adding nutrients that help stimulate collagen production.
HGO Tip: Before removing the Rejuvenating Mask, apply a little water to fingertips and massage to get some extra physical exfoliation from the tiny grains in the mask.
