When wearing a protective face mask, especially in the hot and humid summer months, some people may feel that they need to forego wearing makeup to prevent mask-induced acne breakouts – aka “Maskne”. Many makeup wearers, however, simply do not feel like themselves without a bit of complexion coverage. We asked Dr. Elyse Love, New York City Board Certified Dermatologist, about makeup, maskne, and her favorite products.
Dr. Love insists that it is possible to wear makeup with a face mask, specifically Dermablend Cover Care Concealer. Dr. Loves calls Cover Care Concealer “the #1 concealer I use & recommend to my patients.” Dr. Love wears shade 50W of the hydrating, long wear concealer.
Dr. Love understands that for many people, wearing makeup is a part of their life that they do not want to give up when wearing a face mask. She says, “a lot of people are ditching foundation while wearing a mask, but still want under eye coverage as well as blemish correction for when they have to remove their mask.”
For those who want to wear coverage, Dr. Love says, “Cover Care is a light-weight, full coverage, hydrating concealer that multi-functions for under eye, dark spot, and blemish coverage. In addition, it's non-comedogenic (meaning it won't contribute to ‘maskne’) and tested for tolerability on sensitive skin.”
Cover Care Concealer is included in the Mask-Proof Transfer-Resistant Concealer Routine with other mask makeup essentials: Loose Setting Powder, Setting Spray, and a Dermablend cosmetic bag – a $97 value for $72.
