Now taking reservations at the world’s most exclusive spa- your bathroom! Getting used to this “new normal,” has been hard on most of us, especially our skin. Here at Plexaderm Skincare we believe you can look and feel beautiful right from the comfort of your own home.

Quarantine has forced us to change our idea of a daily routine. This includes our skincare. Many of us used to rely on facials or spa treatments to keep our skin happy and clear. Luckily, Plexaderm Skincare offers an array of products to do just the trick, without an appointment or high expense.

Destress Your Skin

If you are struggling with stress or anxiety due to COVID-19, you’re not alone. Whether it is the lack of normalcy, employment or personal reasons, it is important to understand what stress can do to your skin. “Stress increases cortisol production from the adrenal glands, which in turn increases sebaceous gland activity, to produce more oil and sebum. The result can be acne and increased sensitivity of our skin.” (Independent) Although we can’t always control our emotional reactions, Plexaderm Skincare is there to help repair and protect your unhappy skin.

Mask Acne? Yes, it's a thing.

If the stress of quarantine wasn’t hard enough, COVID-19 has invented a whole new level of acne known as “maskne.”

To explain maskne, it is best to first understand where acne stems from. “Acne usually develops when pores get clogged by oil, dead skin cells, makeup, dirt, or bacteria. Adopting a simple skin-care routine—including cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and wearing sunscreen—helps manage acne because it helps with the skin’s natural shedding process.” (Self) While that may sound easy to most, face masks can interfere with that process. According to Dr. Carrie L. Kovarik, “instead of those dead skin cells shedding throughout the day, they now get clogged in your pores.”

Although maskne may be a nuisance, wearing a mask is necessary for most to ensure the safety of yourself and others. “So, what do I do now?” You may ask. Plexaderm Skincare has just the right products and beauty tips to help keep your skin clear and to battle the dreaded maskne.

Although masks may be irritating to wear, they do ultimately cover a majority of your face. That being said, ditch the makeup! Simply put, no one will be able to tell if you are wearing any or not. “If you're wearing makeup under your mask and breaking out, now is the time to give your skin a break. We suggest avoiding makeup and any other products that could clog your pores.” (CNET) Try Plexaderm Reset and Replenish Pads to effectively remove dirt, oil and makeup. Each pad is infused with a dose of skin quenching Hyaluronic acid for a moisturizing boost in every application. The best part is our pads don’t leave any heavy residue so there’s no need to rinse.

In addition to regularly removing your makeup, you can try adding a targeted exfoliating cleanser. Plexaderm’s Peppermint Exfoliating Cleanser will become your new best friend in quarantine. It offers a wide range of benefits for any skin type making it the ultimate cleanser for daily use. It contains an invigorating blend of oils and extracts to calm and soothe the skin. The exfoliating beads also help to remove daily build-up of dirt, oil and makeup, one of the leading causes to maskne.
