Still Itching to Get Rid of Maskne? Here’s How You Can Fight It



Let these Careline products deal with your maskne for you

It’s undeniable that adjusting to the new normal is not as easy as people thought it would be. Just staying at home everyday or leaving only when face mask-ready are big changes from one’s daily routine. Given the pandemic, leaving home without our face masks on can be considered careless. Wearing them helps the prevention of getting infected by the spreading virus, but it also means possible skin irritation. The friction and occlusion from masks combined with a moist environment from talking or sweating can cause acne breakouts. If these breakouts are within the mask-covered areas of your skin, then having maskne shouldn’t come as a surprise.

The new acne

Maskne, or mask acne, is believed to be the “new acne”. Previously, it was more common to athletes like football players. Maskne appears from their constant use of helmets that mixes with their sweat. But given that wearing a face mask is now common, it can easily happen to anyone, especially those with oily skin. Having oily skin under a mask can lead to clogged pores, which can then lead to acne breakouts. Because of this, having the right face products may just be the solution to fight it.
