Maskne is one of 2020’s most widespread skincare problems.
In this pandemic, people are now required to wear mask and it’s causing maskne! Having a sensitive skin, wearing face masks really affects me. It’s the reason why I visited a dermatologist to have a facial treatment. She also gave some tips on how to avoid having maskne.
What is Maskne?
Maskne is a type of breakouts that results from wearing masks.
How to Avoid Maskne
1. Keep your face clean and moisturized.
Make sure to wash your face before and after using the face mask. You may also use a lightweight moisturizer to block the unwanted bacteria.
2. Don’t use makeup.
Since our face is all covered, let them breathe from the chemicals of make up. Skip those heavy foundations and concealers. If you want to really have a makeup, just focus on your eyes instead.
3. Wash your face masks.
If you’re using a reusable face masks, make sure to wash them at the end of the day. It collects a lot of microbes from your cough, sneeze, saliva, and even your makeup. You may hand wash it with soap and warm water.
4. Don’t touch your face.
Avoid squeezing or popping your acne. It will just make it worse. Squeezing it can help spread the bacteria and make it even bigger. Worse, it may also spread throughout other parts of your face.
5. Avoid being stressed.
There’s a research study which shows that people with higher stress levels are more prone to acne. Our country is facing a crisis and most of the people are struggling. Let’s make sure that we also take care of our mental health. You may also try some meditation apps.
6. Watch your diet.
According to a research study, the consumption of fatty and sugary products, sugary beverages, and milk was associated with current acne in adults. Avoid food that causes acne.
7. Take some beauty supplements.
There are beauty supplements that can improve your skin condition. I’m currently using Eight Karats which contains Eighteen Vistaskin Nutricosmetic Supplement. This product helps in the following: skin lightening, boosts skin moisture, evens out skin tone, boosts radiance, protects skin against UV rays, anti-acne, and even anti-aging.
8. Ask for medical advice from licensed dermatologists.
If you think that you’re experiencing severe irritation, it’s best to ask the experts. Don’t self-diagnose.
