Currently the use of masks has become the new normal for all people in the world. These allow us to protect our nose and mouth from virus when we are on the street and due to the pandemic it is necessary to wear masks whenever we leave our home to stay safe.
On the other hand, with the use of the masks, some allergy reactions have arisen such as acne problems and redness that, during the days of intense heat, appear with a greater impact in the area where we wear the mask. Today, keeping the half of your face hidden could be synonymous of drama and frustration during a time when what people want is to show off a beautiful smile in the best vacation spots.
However, masks have become a mandatory accessory that we will all be using for a long time and for this reason, there is no other option than to assume it and make take advantage of all the designs that exist in the market to use them as a complement for our outfit.
Additionally, we can also enhance the rest of the face with makeup products that will help us look beautiful and radiant, for example, focusing on products for eye care. Dermatologists advise that skin care has always been recommended but lately it is essential.
The well-known dermatologist Paloma Cornejo mentions: “It is a good time to enhance the eyes, in fact, now people is using more botox than ever because people look at faces from the nose up. Small gestures such as enhancing eyelashes, wearing eyelashes well-groomed eyebrows, always wearing sunscreen and a little touch of color would be enought. It’s silly to put a very covering foundation under your mask”.
Another doctor who has kept observing the occlusion phenomena in the skin due to the use of masks also explains: “Current makeup does not tend to plug because their textures are very light and oil free, therefore, they are not obstructive, but the mask yes. For this reason, in this summer time when we also have a very good tone, I would not recommend it because we are going to stain the mask. Now, you can do it if you want to be more beautiful, but I would advocate for a permanent lipstick”.
If you have wondered if the masks and makeup are compatible, according to the opinion of the experts, the answer is no, however, we have to keep in mind that the products that we are going to use are adequate to avoid any damage to our face. Due to the circumstances that we are going through, some cosmetic brands have developed their collections focusing on the look because it is the part of the face that we show the most now.
