Cleanse 2 times a day
With a gentle cleanser to avoid further irritation. We suggest iS Clinical's Cleansing Complex as it's gentle for even the most sensitive skin type. With ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Camomile, Glycolic Acid, and Essential Oils it thoroughly cleanses the surface and pores of the skin without stripping essential natural oils, leaving skin soft and smooth.tho
Remember to moisturize
Don't be afraid to moisturize. This keeps the skin hydrated but most importantly acts as a barrier to friction from your mask. The key is picking the right one. What you need is a moisturizer that controls oil production and offers hydration.
Give your skin a break from any potentially pore clogging products. Besides all we see are your beautiful eyes so play those up a little.
ALWAYS wear a clean mask
Make sure to wash your masks and always use a clean mask.
