What is Maskne & How to Prevent it
If you are new to this term, you might be wondering- What does it mean? Is it some modern slang? A new mask brand? Or a new asking device? Well, if you have heard of this term, then you know how harmful it is for your skin.
"Maskne" is also known as "Mask Acne". It is an umbrella term for several skin conditions that occur when sweat, skin oils and bacterias are trapped on the skin whilst wearing a protective face mask. Wearing a face mask can result in problems like acne, dry skin and even dermatitis. In the current situation, wearing a mask and low ventilation over a long period is the prime reason for Maskne. Various other factors like lack of air, friction, heat, sweat and skin irritation can lead to Maskne.
We cannot avoid wearing a protective face mask, and it is an inevitable part of our life. However, we need to find a way to tackle the problem of Maskne. The following products and methods will help in keeping your skin soft and smooth.
