MASKNE: HOW TO PREVENT BLEMISHES AND ANCE WHILE WEARING A FACE MASK
2020 has presented us with unprecedented challenges and cosmetics must meet these challenges head-on. Given that mask-wearing is a key component in preventing the spread of COVID-19, we can expect wearing them to be part of our daily lives for a while.
It’s essential to wear a mask, however, it comes at a price. If you have a history of acne, rosacea, perioral dermatitis, eczema, or allergic contact dermatitis, you may find that your condition is worsened by prolonged face mask-wearing.
Most obvious and frequent skin problem is acne. Dermatologists from Yale Medicine say they are treating ‘MASKNE’ (officially known as acne mechanica), a form of acne caused by wearing a face covering that traps oil, sweat, and bacteria beneath it. When a mask rubs against the skin (friction), it can irritate small hair follicles, which triggers inflammation and generates acne.
