Mask-ne or Mask acne is an all inclusive term for the increasing common skin problems from wearing our masks. โ 

โ 

Whilst keeping COVID at bay, the warmth, sweat and friction from our mask means more oil, blocking our pores and providing an excellent ground for bacteria. โ 

โ 

More bacteria = more breakouts! โ

Fortunately, mask-wearing is a perfect reason to reduce what we wear under our masks. Keeping make-up minimal or light, is one way to save your skin and time in the morning!โ

With re-usable masks, it is important they are washed at least every day to minimise the building of bacteria under them! โ

Twice a day is enough to keep your face clean. Overwashing your skin can worsen irritation especially if harsh exfoliants are use - avoid falling into this trap!! โ

Wearing an emollient or light moisturiser can help keep skin comfortable and encourage skin healing and repair. Think about barrier creams areas in need of help, such as ceramides, penthenol and niacinamide.โ

SPF 30 is the minimum recommendation for skin protection . UV rays can still penetrate through. โ
