How to prevent Maskne...

Today, many of us are taking part in the prevention against the spread of coronavirus by wearing a mask. In an effort to avoid spreading the virus, a mask is required in many public settings. While not all workers have returned to their work facilities, some have with the condition that they are required to wear a mask while on their shift.


Although wearing a mask is a small token to aid in the prevention of the spread of coronavirus, there are some visible side effects on the skin from wearing a mask.


 Maskne (mask acne) can be the cause or worsening of facial breakouts, a rash, or other skin problems on the face. Here at Begin with Skin MedSpa we advise our patients of the following tips to prevent Maskne….


  1. Choose a mask with a smooth texture and is comfortable to wear. If possible, avoid wearing a mask that causes friction, chafing, or a rash (pre-treated masks).
  2. Wash your mask after every use and store it in a bag to keep it clean.
  3. Minimize make-up wear or skip applying make-up to the lower part of your face.
  4. Call Begin with Skin MedSpa to help you prevent and treat your Maskne.
