How to wear makeup behind a face mask

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have all had to adapt our everyday lives and even carry out simple tasks like going to the store or the doctor. These changes present their challenges. One of the most important is makeup application. How do you apply makeup under a face mask, and how can you prevent it from rubbing away?

It’s not easy to adjust your beauty routine, especially if you are unfamiliar with it. We’ve compiled our best tips and products for wearing makeup underneath a mask.

How to wear makeup with a face mask

Face covers and makeup are not a good combination because the friction can cause issues such as clogged skin pores and irritation. We met Dr. Joel Schlessinger to learn how to wear makeup and a mask.

I see many patients wearing makeup who invariably develop.’ This is due to a combination of hot air circulating behind the masks, masks that are not cleaned often or replaced, and makeup that may have been slightly contaminated before application. Remember that any makeup with a small number of bacteria, which was considered ‘acceptable before masks,’ will be amplified and become a problem once the air is heated and bacteria from your mouth are added. This is a serious problem. MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE YOUR MASK OFTEN! If you cannot change your mask, buy cloth masks that can be cleaned. Wash them. Replace your makeup if it is questionable. Do not use cosmetics that contain germs. Brushes are also a common source of contamination. Use mouthwash often to prevent bacteria and germs from your mouth from contaminating the face and mask.

Lip balm is a great alternative to gloss or lipstick.

Lip care is just as important as maintaining a good skincare routine and regularly cleaning your mask. Masks can rob moisture from the skin and lips. Apply nourishing lip balm to create a barrier. FixMySkin Healing Lip Balm with 1% Hydrocortisone – Vanilla contains 1% hydrocortisone for repair and shea and cacao butter that deeply hydrate the skin.

Dr. Schlessinger’s Pro Tip: To heal the irritation caused by wearing masks over a prolonged period, Dr. Schlessinger suggests FixMySkin Healing Body Balm with 1% Hydrocortisone – fragrance-free. This powerful balm not only contains healing hydrocortisone but also improves and maintains healthy moisture barriers.
