“What is this maskne or mascne?” 

To summarize the mascne(or maskne), it is acne induced by wearing face masks and is formed by combining the words “mask” and “acne.” If you told me ahead of time that I’d write an article like this, I’d probably be astonished, but we live in remarkable times. But that doesn’t rule out the possibility of having exceptional skin. Maskne appears to be a near-term reality in our lives, and we wish to inform you and present you with remedies in this post.

What is the source of it?

Acne induced by maskne has been around for a while, and this type of acne was more common in sports and young people before the pandemic. It was also commonly seen on people who wore helmets, headbands or face masks. However, this sort of acne has now spread to all of us. Excessive heat, pressure, and friction on the skin cause these acnes. It is generally triggered by congestion, and it affects not just our faces but also our backs, shoulders, and hips.

“How about we don’t wear masks?”

We’d want to emphasize that you should continue to wear masks while out in public. If you do not have to be in public, however, stay at home and allow your skin to breathe.

“What kind of mask should I wear?”

Invest in a few masks that you can switch out and wash regularly. Verify and see if your reusable mask meets the requirements with the most recent mask guidelines. If you plan on wearing the mask for a long duration, wash it after each use.  100 percent cotton masks are a great option because they’re made of a breathable fabric.

“What about makeup?”

If you normally wear makeup, avoid applying it to the mask-covered areas. The more makeup you apply to your face, the more weight it bears. Always keep your face clean. It’s critical to maintain a healthy skin barrier.

“How do I prevent it?”

Allow time for your skin to breathe. Make sure your mask is clean. Also, don’t touch your face. It’s natural to put your hand to your face involuntarily, especially when you’re stressed. However, this aggravates your predicament. It’s also a good idea to have several masks on hand. It’s especially important to change these masks if you’re sweating.
