If you wear a mask for a long time and notice changes in skin health, you are not alone. Now many people are thinking about how to deal with the skin problems that may be caused by wearing a mask all day. We also know that stress plays an important role in the development of skin conditions, so it is more difficult to determine what caused out our breakouts, rashes or bumps.
Maskne is a general term for certain general dermatological conditions, which can affect the face, especially under conditions of heat, humidity, occlusion and friction.
How to prevent maskne?
Due to the increase in humidity, the cosmetics under the mask may clog pores and exacerbate breakouts.
Wear a silk face mask
The soft texture gently adheres to your skin, and the breathable fabric reduces the moisture in your breath. Silk is also known for its antibacterial properties, which prevent bacteria from growing in the mask.
Clean face before and after wearing a mask
Just like washing your hands before and after wearing a mask, you should also develop the habit of washing your face before wearing a mask. Washing your face before putting on a mask can remove dead skin, oil and dirt on the skin, otherwise the mask will become dirty and the skin will become worse. Wash your face after wearing a mask to remove the oil residue on your face.
Wash your face mask
Wash the mask every time you wear it, which is essential to prevent maskne and the spread of COVID-19. Cleaning the mask will remove all the oil and skin cells collected in the mask that may cause the maskne.
