This new era presents many new habits for all people, in daily activities they must always implement a health protocol. One of them is the use of masks as a preventive action of Covid-19.
However, the use of masks with quite a long and repetitive period of time can also lead to new problems in the skin such as acne, irritation, folliculitis, dermatitis, and others. Friction between the skin with a mask that makes the face become hot and moist because the circulation of breath and sweat that accumulates around the mask causes clogged pores and triggers the appearance of pimples and other skin problems.
To avoid skin problems due to the use of masks can be overcome by diligently replacing the mask 2-3 times if excess facial oil, using a soft mask material so it is not irritated, and continue to do skin care by using basic skincare at home so that able to prevent from infection pimples and dry skin.
In addition to using masks, a new habit in the new normal era is the reduction of activities carried out outside so that work and learning take place at home. Habits “stay at home” also cause many women/men who forget to use basic skincare. dr. Radha Latifah Hanum Siregar, as a speaker in this webinar, emphasize the importance of using skincare even though only stay at home. The use of skincare is also important to prevent skin problems in this new normal era, such as those caused by the use of masks.
Not only in terms of frequency of using skincare, it is no less important to note is the composition or content contained in the skincare used. Currently, many skincare with dangerous content which is traded in e-commerce platforms that offer instant results, even though the content in the skincare is dangerous. The content of dangerous skincare will cause various long-term side effects that endanger the health of its users. Therefore, in choosing skincare, you must be very careful.
