The Maskne struggle can truly be real, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help kick it to the curb with a more balanced skin care routine.
It’s true, 2020 has brought its fair share of surprises. As the world continues to pivot with the times, a number of adjustments have been made to daily life to help keep ourselves and those around us feeling their best. The first change that comes to mind? Face Masks.
If you noticed a few extra blemishes since the rise of the face mask—you aren’t alone. Maskne is the latest pandemic term, coined for those pesky spots that pop up after constant face mask use. Lucky for you, there are a few simple steps you can take to help ease redness and reduce the look of Maskne, starting with Aloette’s Maskne Skin Care Routine!
But First, What Causes Maskne and How Do You Prevent It?
When you sit back and think about, it’s quite easy to understand why face masks can breed an imperfect environment for our complexion. Mask acne is often cause by congestion and irritation. When you wear a mask, all your coughing, sneezing and breathing is trapped under the clothe and on top of the skin. This can lead to redness and sensitivity coupled with the irritation of the straps rubbing against your face. So what can you do? Ensuring that your face mask is properly washed and sanitized is the most important step. Creating a clarifying, yet hydrating skin care routine is the next!
