MASKNE

MASKNE IS A REAL ZITTY SITUATION

Why does this happen?
Maskne ( acne from wearing a mask) occurs when sweat, skin oils, and bacteria are trapped on the skin while wearing your mask
▫️

Face masks can cause irritation by either physically rubbing against the skin, which can damage the skin’s protective barrier, or by trapping moisture


IS THIS ACNE THE SAME AS NORMAL ACNE BREAKOUTS


This type of acne is called acne mechanica, which includes any skin issues due to pressure, friction, rubbing, squeezing, or stretching. It’s different from other kinds of acne (like the pimples that show up around your period, for example, which are hormonal) because it occurs only in areas where the mask sits
