It’s an embarrassing blemish that causes your insecurities to bubble over whenever you have a meal or drink in public. Ever since the global pandemic started, it’s been a growing problem everyone’s trying to solve. It’s not innocent vanity anymore, but a question of your skin’s health and wellness: it’s mask acne.
What is Mask Acne?
Brought on by the need to don face masks for long periods every day, acne growth under your face mask is a burgeoning concern these days. These are its characteristics:
- It only affects the bottom half of your face hidden behind the mask, and
- It can come in the form of chin and jawline acne, as well as pimples on your nose, chin and upper lip.
At the moment, it might seem impossible to protect your health and your skin at the same time, but we’re here to tell you there’s no need to compromise. This article will help you get to the crux of the problem by looking into the causes of mask acne and what you can do to prevent them once and for all.
What is Mask Acne Caused By?
Masks cause acne due to the moisture that’s trapped in your mask as you breathe. The friction and rubbing between the slightly damp mask and your face introduce bacteria and dirt. Combine this with prolonged exposure throughout the day, and you’ll get mask acne.
But there are also other factors that make you more prone to getting mask acne.
Nutrition and Diet
An unbalanced diet can lead to hormonal imbalances that cause overproduction of sebum and result in oily skin susceptible to acne. This can cause bacteria and dead skin cells to clog up your pores.
If you’re not using the right kind of cosmetics for your , it will exacerbate acne growth. For instance, if you already have oily skin, oil-based makeup can clog up your pores further and cause breakouts.
Conscientiously cleansing your face with the right makeup remover and toner for acne skin is also essential to go deep and get rid of built-up dirt and clogged pores.
What Can You Do To Control Mask Acne?Cast aside all your dilemmas and frustrations because here are some tools you can arm yourself with to fix the problem.
