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
