If you're a responsible adult, odds are you're putting on your face mask whenever you leave the house, because we're still in a pandemic. (opens in new tab) Which, great—you're helping save lives. But you might have noticed that, underneath your mask, your skin is rebelling. On the plus side? At least no one can see the pimples when you're wearing your mask. Still, annoying skin issues are annoying skin issues. This being the beauty community, we know one thing for certain: There's a mask for that!

Masque Bar originally created the Shield & Soothe sheet mask for people who work in the medical field and therefore always have to wear surgical masks for hours at a time. Little did the company know how many of us would soon need the same treatment. This mask, which covers the area around the mouth and chin, is infused with calming aloe vera, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and healing calendula. You can use it as an end-of-day treatment to relieve the area that your face mask was covering, or simply put it on and throw your anti-COVID mask on top. Goodbye breakouts, dry patches, and itchy, inflamed chins.
