Mask Acne – Maskne

maskne - mask acne
😷 Maskne is the development of acne (mask acne) resulting from clogged pores caused by a build up of bacteria, dead skin cells and trapped humidity. Irritation from rubbing and chaffing and the possibility of being allergic or sensitive to the mask material can also occur.
💟 How to treat Maskne?
*Wash you face morning and night with a gentle cleanser.
*Use a non-pore blocking moisturiser, preferably with ceramides. Ceramides are a class of fatty acids that help create a barrier to prevent skin permeability, this locks in moisture which helps reduce dryness and irritation.
*Skip the makeup
*Wash face mask daily, using a hypoallergenic laundry powder
*Discard disposable masks after each use.
*Try to have mask free time 15mins every 4 hours
