What is Mascne?

Mascne is a term to describe acne that is caused by mask-wearing. In today’s environment, efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus involve frequent and heavy mask requirements. This in turn is leading to the new widespread development of mascne.

Wearing a mask for several hours a day can lead to sweat and bacteria against the skin where there is direct contact with the face mask. With the rubbing of the mask on the face, mascne is commonly seen affecting the chin, cheeks, and nose areas.

Preventing Mascne

There are many preventative measures we can take to prevent mascne before it starts. Overall, making sure to maintain a clean routine makes a huge difference in the prevention of mascne.

Wash your mask regularly

It has been proven to be highly beneficial to wear clean, breathable masks – especially if they will be worn for extended periods of time.

Maintain a skincare routine 

If you are generally prone to breakouts or have sensitive skin, it is extremely important to use the right products in your skincare routine. Using gentle products on your skin can help reduce the effects of mascne.

Avoid touching your face 

To alleviate skin irritation and the spread of germs, avoid touching your nose, mouth, and face area. Masks should always be removed from the loops behind the ears.
