Got "Maskne"? Prevent Acne Mechanica With These Simple Steps

Posted by Rekha Panda on

This corona-fashion of wearing masks to protect our friends and family is leading to some unpleasant side effects. If you're experiencing blemishes, pimples, and zits, you're not alone.

Maskne is really acne mechanica, acne caused by the mechanical friction of fabric (AKA face mask) against the skin. Good news is that you can prevent Maskne following these simple steps. 

 1. First and foremost! Use a gentle fabric like neoprene on your skin. Fabrics have different textures so the more rough the texture, the more irritated your skin will get.  Printed cotton fabrics can be rough against your skin so switching to something smoother like neoprene will help avoid friction and irritation. Cotton also traps moisture more than fabrics like polyester nylon so look for masks that are made from breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics. 

2. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser that is free from oils and synthetic-fragrances before putting on your face covering. Rinse with lukewarm water to cool water, not hot (hot water opens pores). The friction from your face mask pushes dirt and oils into your pores, causing them to get trapped and can cause breakouts.


3. Remember that you're naturally beautiful so stay away from all that makeup! Avoid using makeup under your mask. Face coverings don't let your skin breath and traps makeup under your skin, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Plus, it prevents your face covering from getting makeup stains!

4. Stick to fragrance free or natural laundry detergents. It's best to hand was your face mask but if you have to throw it in the laundry, choose a fragrance free detergent and lay it flat on a clean surface to air dry. Synthetic fragrances are irritants so that definitely not wanted on your face. 

5. For you dry folks, use an exfoliator to rid your face of dry skin flaking to prevent dead skin cells from building up. This too can clog your pores and induce the over production of oils from your sebaceous gland which leads to cystic acne. You definitely don't want that under your mask!

Lastly, don't let this new norm discourage you from doing your nightly skin routine. More than ever, it's important to find a skin routine that works for you. It takes trial and error but we believe in you!
