Three Ways to Prevent "Maskne"

July 30, 2020

If you're wearing a mask daily, there's a good chance you've had an issue with "Maskne." Just one more thing we get to deal with in 2020, right? In case you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about, it's the term people are using for mask-related acne.  But if you have to wear a mask all day, Hawaii News Now says there are a few things you can do to prevent it...


1.  Wash your face more- Seems obvious, but the main goal is to make sure oil and dirt don't build up.  So, washing your face will definitely help.


2.  Wear less make-up- They say instead of wearing foundation, try tinted moisturizers that aren't as heavy and won't clog your pores.  Or just wear no make-up on the lower half of your face.  No one can see it anyway, so what's the point?


3.  Wash your mask more often or use the disposable kind-  They say you're supposed to wash reusable masks every time you use them anyway.  So, having at least three or four clean ones that you can keep in rotation helps.
