By now it is safe to say we are all pretty tired of wearing our masks right? Of course we are! Since we know this will have to continue until who knows when, we’ve been learning to accept it. Although the masks protects us, they can really irritate our skin and in turn cause acne. This is why a new term has evolved in the name of “maskne” (mask-related acne).
Lets Get Technical
When you breathe or talk, your mask tends to trap in a lot of hot air. Besides being annoying, this air creates a warm, humid environment — and an ideal setting for yeast, bacteria and other flora, such as demodex (types of skin mites that naturally live on our skin), to grow. These bacterial imbalances and friction from your mask can promote acne and rosacea flare-ups as well as something called perioral dermatitis. This is when fine pimples and pustules appear around the nose and mouth.
Makeup or Facial Hair?
As long as you are not heavy handed with your application, applying makeup is fine. Topical treatments and sunscreen can help calm and balance the normal skin flora. A layer of moisturizer (lighter if you are oily or acne prone and thicker if you have sensitive or eczema-prone skin) or even a sunblock that contains zinc or titanium can help your skin by serving as a barrier against any friction or irritation that develops. For the guys with beards or moustaches it can be quite difficult to prevent the warmth from creating moisture under the mask. Thats why we recommend using a toner with alpha hydroxy acid to freshen your skin and prevent problems. Make sure to let your skin and facial hair dry off before putting your mask back on.
Book-In Your Maskne Facial
We are now providing a treatment facial specifically designed to take care of maskne! If this is something that is getting out of control for you or if you simply want to be proactive to prevent maskne, call (5195788898) or email us (email@example.com) to book an appointment with one of our professionals.
We have been restructuring our schedule and the way we operate to accommodate the strict guidelines in this post-pandemic. Just as we are perfectionists with our crafts at Pino’s, we are determined to strive for perfection in disinfection and cleaning procedures so you will stay comfortable and safe as our guests.
Here are things that you should know and might notice during your “post quarantine visit”:
Masks are mandatory for all clients and staff at all times (We have extra masks and other necessary social distancing shields)
All beverages are suspended until further notice
We cannot accept walk-ins at this time (please call and book for proper screening)
Since us guys like easy convenience I will be using a 3 in 1 product from Människan to shampoo and condition our hair/beard. The third piece is that you can use this as a body wash as well! Not to mention your girl will be all over you for the Människan scent…

On behalf of our team, I wanted to send out our best wishes in health and safety to all of our clients and community during this time. We understand that there are a lot of over grown hair roots out there and its not because of a purposely done shadow root/balayage. Yikes!
I am also here on a much better note…there WILL be hope for your hair! We are offering a Colour Touch Up Kits with free delivery! We are also providing free delivery on products orders over $50. Orders under this amount will be charged $10. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us through Instagram or Facebook.
If the pandemic has given you a bit more time around the house, then this is going to be the “rebirth” of your locks! Especially for those of you that use hot tools regularly – this has been minimized.
Before we get into details there are two very important things to remember:
1. DO NOT CUT YOUR OWN HAIR!!!
2. DO NOT BLEACH/LIGHTEN YOUR OWN HAIR!!
I know its very hard for some people to not give those ends a quick little trim when needed or touch up those roots with a box colour from the store but it will not be worth it in the end. We are here for you and we welcome any types of hair/skin questions to help you through this time via email, direct messaging through Instagram or video chat consultations.
Okay, now we can start with the “rebirth” process. Although, this will most likely work best for colour treated blondes (they deal with the most dryness/damage) it will work for all hair types and hair colours.
Supercharged Hair Mask
After you shampoo and rinse (with sulphate free shampoo) apply a looney size amount to medium-thick Intense Hydrating Mask from MOROCCANOIL in your hand and add a pump of the MOROCCANOIL Treatment (Original or Light). Add this through your hair, comb it through thoroughly and leave in for at least 5 min. The mask by itself is a godsend, creamy deep conditioner improving your hair’s texture, elasticity, shine and manageability. The Treatment oil added is the “supercharge” your hair will receive. Rich in vitamin E and naturally-occurring antioxidants that help battle free radicals. Use this cocktailing method 1-2 times a week.
Other masks/deep conditioners are applicable to use with the MOROCCANOIL Treatment mixture including:
