Using a face mask is critical to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Skin care routine adjustments are often necessary to prevent common issues that arise from mask wearing such as acne, congested pores, blackheads, dry skin and irritation. To keep skin in healthy condition, dermatologists recommend:
cleansing thoroughly and regularly
moisturizing immediately after cleansing to add a protective layer against dryness
keeping make-up to a minimum and using non-comedogenic or oil-free cosmetics
wearing face masks made of soft, natural material such as cotton
washing face masks often with fragrance-free, hypoallergenic laundry detergent
“The key to keeping skin healthy and glowing when wearing a face mask is purification, hydration and nourishment,” recommends L.RAPHAEL Founder, Ronit Raphael. The following are Ronit’s personal recommendations to keep skin healthy and vibrant.

Perfection Eye Cream is one of L.RAPHAEL’s most renowned skincare products for correcting, protecting and strengthening the delicate skin around the eye area resulting in a noticeable reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
L.RAPHAEL’s Mineral Purifying Mask – Apply this intensive multi-mineral treatment once or twice a week to absorb excess oils and decongest and tighten pores. This mask also helps balance the skin’s hydrolipidic film which acts as a protective barrier to defend skin from bacteria while retaining moisture.
L.RAPHAEL’s Perfection Cream – when wearing a mask, hydration is more important than ever. But a moisturizer that’s too rich may cause congestion and breakouts. Perfection Cream deeply moisturizes, while keeping pores clean and clear, to allow the skin to breath. Active ingredients also help diminish fine lines and wrinkles for a youthfully smooth, lifted, dewy complexion.
