What Cause Maskne & How To Treat

Masks have been mandated in several different nations for a while now due to Covid-19. Though masks have been effective in controlling the source of the virus, they have also been proven to be quite exasperating when it comes to our skin. With masks, I’m sure you have experienced “maskne” or acne mechanica (acne bred from the use and wear of masks). Maskne is essentially standard acne but the source of which it comes from is the environment that is being created by the masks.Occlusion and friction on the skin are a few things that occur when we wear masks for long periods of time. On top of the occlusion and friction, the breath and the sweat we produce provides our skin with a moist environment within the walls of our masks. This makes the perfect petri dish for bacteria, thus increasing the chances of breaking out. The moist environment is suitable for our excess skin oils to proliferate and for bacteria to become trapped in between our mask and our skin, thus clogging pores and breeding acne. If you’ve recently been breaking out or acne is an issue that is relatively new to you or, perhaps, your skin has gotten worse in recent weeks, you’re most likely experiencing maskne. If the treatment you’ve been using at home – such as your cleansers or moisturizers – hasn’t been working, you may want to seek clinical treatment. Your skin is your largest organ, so it’s best you take good care

It can be found primarily on the face, forehead, scalp, back, shoulders and chest. These areas contain the most oil glands and therefore have the greatest possibility of acne showing up. Acne can be stubbornly persistent on the skin, with more emerging after treatment. Therefore, much patience and diligence are required in the healing process. Causes of Acne When oil glands joined to hair follicles are triggered during puberty or hormonal changes, acne can occur. The hair follicle becomes plugged by oil and dead skin cells when oil production increases. This follicle grows and may burst,
