The effects of lockdown on our skin and maskne

Over the past few months masks have become compulsory in more and more environments. 

Not only can the increased environmental changes affect our skin, but so can wearing a reusable mask. 

“Maskne” is a recent term you may have heard of referring to the effects on our skin during lockdown. Namely, how wearing a mask has impacted our skin – particularly from the nose downwards as this is wear masks cover. Maskne may refer to acne or other skin irritation that results from wearing a mask. 

In particular, reusable masks can lead to skin becoming compromised. This is because each time your mask is worn, it has collected external bacteria from the bottom of handbags, pockets, and even the residue of oils and make up since the last wear! 

Reusable masks are always a plus for the environment, so we recommend having at least two so you always have one spare when one is in the wash. But, if you do want to look after your skin a little more… 

The brand new BYONIK® is a pain free and non-invasive skin rejuvenation system that’s triggered by your pulse. The BYONIK® method stimulates the cell processes, “powering up” each individual skin cell in the process to maximize the skin’s regenerative capacity and slow down the cellular aging process.

How can skin be treated effectively post-lockdown with the BYONIK® treatment?

The BYONIK® is the latest facial that’s taken the skincare industry by storm, and for good reason! 

The incredible, unique treatment system combines Pulse Triggered Laser Technology with Light Induced Transmembrane Convection and BYONIK® Hyaluronic Gel. 

The result is a pain free, no down time treatment that is the world’s only system to repair skin at a cellular level and lock in hydration at the same time.  The non-invasive, patented and medical beauty program utilises a three-step procedure that “powers up” individual skin cells. Skin’s regenerative capacity is maximized, and the cellular aging process is dramatically slowed down. 

The BYONIK® rejuvenates skin by activating skin cells to produce collagen and elastin, and the skin’s microcirculation is enhanced. The specialised combination of BYONIK® HA gels with antioxidants are absorbed by the skin, directly into the cell itself, and the hyaluronic acids are integrated into the intercellular matrix. 

Not only is the BYONIK® a soothing, relaxing treatment that can help ease you back into everyday life when lockdown is over, but it can also help your skin feel rejuvenated.
