Mask-ne and How to Treat it

Masks have helped Australia reduce the spread of Covid-19 for over a year. Though we’re getting vaccinating and practicing other preventative measures, we’re still going to need to use them, at least for the time being.

While vital, masks can also cause some people to breakout, hence the term “mask-ne.” Masks cause breakouts in three main ways:

They rub against the skin and cause irritation.
They absorb skin’s oils and cause inflammation.
They clog pores and leave skin moist and warm.

Ways to Reduce Mask-ne

Here are a few tips to reduce Mask-ne:

  • Place your mask over a freshly cleansed face. Use a gentle, fragrance and oil free cleanser. Don’t harshly rub or scrub your skin and rinse with lukewarm water.
  • Apply fragrance and oil free moisturiser. It will hydrate your skin and shield it from friction.
  • Avoid wearing makeup under your mask. It will further clog your pores.
  • Only wear clean masks. Maintain enough masks so that you can wash them daily.
  • Use a gentle, fragrance and oil free cleanser in the evening and re-apply moisturiser.
  • Seek professional skin care clinic treatments.
  • Professional Skin Care Clinic Treatments
  • Professional skin care clinic treatments thoroughly cleanse and moisturize your skin and unclog your pores. In other words, all the things you need to do to prevent mask-ne and acne in general. Moreover, professional skin care clinic treatments treat your current breakouts, exfoliate dead skin, and allow your skin to breathe and properly function.

When you incorporate professional skin clinic treatments into your routine, you’ll achieve optimal results.
