Wearing a reusable or disposable face mask in public is a crucial measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19. While this protective barrier helps shield you and others around you from the deadly virus, using these masks frequently can take a toll on your skin's natural barrier—often causing irritation and breakouts on your chin or around your mouth and nose—thanks to trapped sweat, dirt as well as heat and moisture from your breath.
These tiny zits or mask-induced acne are what we commonly known as 'maskne'. "Maskne is another term for acne mechanica, which is acne lesions that form on the skin in areas that are occluded (blocked or sealed-in), such as under a mask.
Although mask-wearing isn't going anywhere anytime soon, there are a few tips that you can integrate into your daily routine to effectively prevent and treat maskne.
- Wash your mask regularly.
- Try to take mask breaks every now and then if possible and for at least 15mins
- Avoid wearing makeup under your mask.
- Don't pick at the acne.
- Make sure your mask isn't too tight.
- Wear a silk mask under your regular mask as they glide over your skin
- Don’t overdo your skincare routine keep it simple.
- Use products that contain anti-inflammatory ingredients like Niacinamide
- Finally, using products that are formulated to help tackle blemishes is a great idea because the moist, hot environment and constant rubbing of the mask can more easily lead to acne mechanica. Moisturize often. Hydrate your skin with a moisturizer
