Maskne is a thing, and we're not for it.

Even in the time of Zoom calls and cosy pyjamas, skincare has reigned on the list of daily routines. The quarantine season has given us a chance to take a break from make-up. But this doesn't exempt us from weekly trips to the grocery store or occasional work-related travels. There's no escaping that grimy feeling you get after running a quick errand, especially when wearing a mask. 

Maskne is a thing, and we're all not for it.

What makes it worse is the fact that we can't really touch our faces anymore without feeling paranoid. But staying fresh and feeling rejuvenated under a mask doesn't have to be so difficult. There's one way you can feel fresh without touching your face. All it takes is one spritz of these face mists and sprays.

Face mists and other hydrating face sprays have ingredients that can hydrate and make your face dewy, which is something we need since masks often cover our faces, leaving it sweaty and oily.

Uplift Serum Spray by Ellana Cosmetics

Aside from the uncomfortable feeling, the trapped sweat under that mask will eventually turn into acne a few days later. The skin will naturally crave hydration since we wear masks for a long period of time, especially in humid weather. But sometimes, your skin will need more than just spritzing essential ingredients for moisture. Ellana Cosmetics' Uplift spray includes 89.6 per cent pure pomegranate extract, hydrating Niacinamide and Vitamin C serum. It does wonders with its vegan ingredients (can't go wrong with naturals!) as it brightens and tones delicate skin. You can use this as much as you need within your busy day, even in the mornings and evenings after cleansing.

Re-Dew by Beauty Blender

Known for its make-up sponge, Beauty Blender also has a do-it-all mist for your make-up even under the mask. It does more than re-dew — it brightens and hydrates the skin, refreshes make-up, and gives you a chance to switch up your look. Look great with matte make-up in the morning and achieve that glow in the evening with one spray of the Re-Dew.
