Maskne tends to form around the areas of your face covered by a protective face mask that is being worn.
We're all wearing masks nowadays, and because of that, a lot of us are now dealing with maskne! So first things first, you are not alone in dealing with this. A lot of people are!
The first step to handling this: is understanding it. Why is it happening?
+ Trapped Bacteria
+ Trapped Moisture
+ Increased Sebum (Oil) Production
Tips to prevent:
+ Wash your mask nightly with warm water and dry on heat, otherwise your mask will become a breeding ground for bacteria.
+ Wear a hydrating moisturizer.
+ Give that mask a spritz of a hydrating toner before putting it on.
+ Don't wear make up under the mask! No one can see it anyways ;)
