Could You Be Suffering with Maskne ?

Many clients have been complaining this year about unusual pimples and recent breakouts - after wearing the compulsory face mask.

The skin condition has been named maskne, shown on the skin in the form of red, irritated, and inflamed pimples, similar to the appearance of acne.


The mask is designed to protect us and others from fluids and moisture within our atmosphere, but having to wear a mask for any period of time can causes warmth and moisture to build up beneath the mask, combine this with breath of which the human mouth contains 100's of bacteria, part of the human flora, this can lead the way to a skin disaster.

The skin produces more sebum due to the warm conditions and the skin follicles become blocked and congested, bacteria finds its way into the follicles causing inflammation, and dust and dirt also accumulates during the day, adding to the problem.

All combined makes the perfect skin conditions for skin problems like spots, black and white heads (comedones) and even acne.
