Tips for maskne

Hi all, ever since the pandemic started I have to wear masks everyday when I go to school/work. This has made my skin very angry and so I have been getting a bunch of big, red, painful pimples that leave bad scars. What are your tips to prevent and treat acne caused by wearing masks? šŸ’“

Hi Anna! I have to wear masks every day from 8am to 8pm. My skin is sensitive and irritates very easy. But SPF helps me. It makes barier bitween a mask and my skin. Also, I use niacinamide and acids in my skin care routine. And for me vitamin C works good too.

You can try this plastic shield. it keeps a barrier between your skin the mask. another way is wear cloth mask or material that is soft. as for products, maybe can try soothing and calming products to apply on the angry skin. I find mugwort works very well for me.

Change your mask every 3-4 hours, before it if your skin oily you can use paper face.
