TREATING "MASCNE" — ACNE FROM WEARING A FACE MASK
Cleanser - Moisturizer - Mask
"Mascne" is what we call acne caused by wearing a face mask. For many of us, wearing a face mask has become part of our daily lives — whether we have to wear it all day at work, or just when we go out in public. While face masks are important for keeping us safe, unfortunately, they can cause a lot of disruption on the skin including dryness, flakiness, and even breakouts. This is because the mask traps the humidity which accelerates the development of acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin, which can result in unwanted blemishes and acne.
We've selected 5 different options that will help you treat breakouts that you may be experiencing from wearing your face mask. This curated selection of cleansers and treatments will target your stubborn "mascne" and have your skin looking clear in no time!
