A pandemic is not an easy thing to deal with. However, there are two ways to go through it – accept it or resist it. Most of us have to wear masks throughout the day during these harsh times. Without taking away the effectiveness of these masks in slowing down the spread of coronavirus, it can severely affect your facial skin by causing chafing on your chin, nose, cheeks, and even on the ears.
As a result, some people start experiencing irritation and itchiness or rash in these areas. The damp and sweaty skin underneath the mask can become a breeding ground for bacteria and germs that can result in acne breakouts and other painful skin conditions.
To make things better in this pandemic, make sure that you keep in mind some effective skincare tips. Let’s take a look at some super simple and effective tips to help you take good care of your skin and health in the pandemic.
Rejuvenate Your Skin
Since most of us are spending a majority of our time confined to our home, now is the best time to get rid of chemical-laden makeup products. Instead, focus on making your skin healthy and beautiful from within. Stop using harmful, pore-clogging cosmetics, and give your skin the chance to breathe.
However, just because you’ve reduced your usage of makeup products doesn’t mean you should neglect your daily skincare regimen. The most important thing to attain healthy and flawless skin is to maintain a regular cleansing, toning, and moisturizing routine with the right products that are suitable for your skin type.

Cleanse & Exfoliate After Removing Your Mask
Experts recommend properly cleansing and exfoliating your facial skin after removing your mask. This routine can help you prevent many skin issues resulting from the use of masks. For this purpose, use a mild, alcohol-free cleanser with gentle exfoliating ingredients like AHA’s and BHA’s.
We recommend Deep Facial Foaming Cleanser from Zali Cosmetics that is free from alcohol, parabens, and mineral oil. Many experts advise people with oily skin not to use an excessive moisturizer under their mask as it tends to make their skin too oily.
Stick to a Basic Skincare Routine
We all are fond of new-age skincare routines to look at our best. Advanced treatments can surely make you feel at the top of the world albeit temporarily. But, when you opt for a simple beauty routine consisting of just a face wash or cleanser – you’ll instantly realize that you can achieve healthier and smoother skin that radiates a healthy glow from within.
The lesser the harmful chemicals applied to your skin, the better your skin will do. If your skin is oily, use a water-soluble natural cleanser like Deep Facial Foaming Cleanser from Zali Cosmetics at least twice a day to get rid of excessive oil and sebum.
Get Rid Of Acne
If you have acne-prone skin, make sure to cleanse it at least twice regularly with a good cleanser like Deep Facial Foaming Cleanser. Look for products that contain ingredients like salicylic acid or glycolic acid. Always remember to never pop or squeeze your pimples as it can lead to inflammation and even infection in the affected area.
Keep Your Skincare Products Germ-Free
Skincare products are available in various shapes and sizes – ranging from tubes to open cans. To keep germs and viruses at bay, always choose high-quality products that come with a pump and nozzle. This can help you prevent contamination.
Secondly, don’t share your products with anyone else. This may sound selfish to some people, but it’s actually not. Besides protecting yourself, you’re also helping others to prevent the spread of viruses and germs.
Our skin is the largest organ of our body and also our first line of defense in fighting against infections. Therefore, it is especially important in these harsh times to give it the extra care and love that it deserves. Zali Cosmetics range of products is designed to provide your skin exactly that.
