WHAT IS MASKNE?
Mask + Acne = Maskne.
Maskne occurs when acne breaks out as a result of wearing a mask. Maskne can develop as quickly as one day of wearing a mask, or after several weeks of mask-wearing. Due to COVID-19, it has become an everyday lifestyle to wear a mask to protect ourselves and everyone around us. However, one of the unwanted side effects of wearing masks is that it can cause acne, rashes, redness, and breakouts to appear.
WHAT CAUSES MASKNE?
Wearing a mask creates a humid environment that can cause blockage due to mask causing a barrier between the skin and fresh air. Wearing a mask causes sweat, oil and bacteria to build up and this can clog our pores. The weather can influence maskne too. During warmer climates, maskne is most likely to be caused by clogged pores, whereas colder climates maskne is created by friction on dry, sensitive skin.
