Skin 101’s new maskne set

THANKS to COVID-19, we all have to wear masks when stepping out of the house. While masks help keep the coronavirus at bay, the masks themselves can end up causing mask induced acne or, as it is now called, maskne, an irritation from formed oil, moisture, sweat, and bacteria. In reaction to this issue, Skin 101 has come out with a new Maskne Set — available at 25% off during Skin 101’s 9.9 sale from Sept. 9 to 20. The set includes the Moisture Rich Facial Cleanser (P150), a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic cleanser; the Renew Serum (P450), formulated to prevent the formation of pigmentation spots and other signs of aging; the Acne Clear Gel (P300), infused with niacinamide to help reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process; and Sunblock Gel (P200). To avoid maskne, it is best to keep reusable masks regularly washed and one’s face make-up free to lessen the chances of breakouts. The severity of maskne also depends on the type of mask (Skin 101 highly recommends cloth type! And how long it is worn. Skin 101 recently reopened more of its clinics, and appointments can be scheduled via For more information on Skin 101 products, visit

Celeteque’s anti-aging solution

AS TIME passes, people start to notice discoloration on their skin like age spots, sun spots, blemish marks, melasma, pekas, and hyperpigmentation. These are manageable through skincare products that can target the blemishes and age spots like Céleteque DermoScience Advanced Anti-Aging Age Spot Erasing Serum, a skincare product specifically designed for this purpose. The serum contains the anti-aging ingredient retinol which has long been touted by dermatologists as a way to reverse the damage caused by the sun and time. The serum has ReverCell Complex, which contains retinol to stimulate skin renewal, resulting, the company says, in the lightening of age spots and smoothening of wrinkles in just seven days. The product addresses age spots and blemishes specifically, unlike other anti-aging products that claim to address all signs of aging in one bottle. Since this is a spot treatment, the product needed to be light enough to penetrate the skin quickly, but powerful enough to deliver results — hence, the serum format instead of a heavy cream that would take time for the skin to absorb. Log on to to purchase this and other Céleteque products from the safety of home.
