Mascne, or Mask Acne, 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.

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