A quick recap from Part 1 - where we defined and discussed what is “maskne” and how best to manage your skin under your mask.

Introducing Avène Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream 

Meet Avène Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream, a lightweight cream that works well on sensitive skin, rosacea, post procedure eg peels etc.

With ingredients such as
  • [C+-Restore]™, a patented, postbiotic active ingredient derived from Avène Thermal Spring Water which facilitates rapid epidermal repair
  • Aluminum Sucrose Octasulfate, known to facilitate healing
  • Copper Sulphate + Zinc Sulphate, anti-inflammatory, limits bacterial overproduction
  • Avène Thermal Spring Water, soothes sensations of discomfort

So how it works with ‘Maskne’ is it forms a protective film on the skin, that helps to soothe and heal the irritation caused by heat from breathing into the mask, where bacteria thrives, friction and sensitivity from wearing mask. Because it’s light weight, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, its perfect for day and night wear as a moisturizer.

TIP: If you are using a cloth mask, ensure you are thorough when washing it and do so diligently. Also try to go for fabrics like cotton versus polyester

Have you seen Avène products in the beauty isles and have you tried any of their products?
